      Our Criminal Defense Services in Rancho Palos Verdes

      Our firm provides comprehensive services in criminal law at all stages of your case. 

      These include but are not limited to:

      • DUI. We defend all charges related to driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, including those involving injuries and fatalities.
      • Drug crimes. These can involve drugs ranging from cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and other street drugs, as well as unauthorized prescription medicines.
      • Domestic violence. These involve harm, injury, or threats against family or household members or dating partners, whether current or former relationships.
      • Theft crimes. Cases can range from minor shoplifting to grand theft, auto theft, and burglary.
      • Fraud and white-collar crimes. Despite generally being nonviolent, these financial crimes can have significant consequences; examples include identity theft, forgery, and embezzlement.
      • Sex crimes. These are highly stigmatized, with steep penalties that may include mandatory sex offender registration, such as rape.
      • Juvenile crimes. We strive to minimize or prevent a minor’s future from being harmed by criminal convictions with solid legal representation in the juvenile justice system.
      • Violent crimes. These are among the most severe of all offenses, including robbery, arson, manslaughter, and murder. We fight for your best possible outcome. 

      Our firm also offers additional services to support you further, such as post-conviction relief, which can include expungement and other legal processes designed to improve your future by clearing your criminal record. Our pre-file investigation representation helps identify potential legal issues before charges are officially filed; these may result in charges never being filed. 

      We also fight for diversion programs for our clients where applicable, which can serve as alternatives to jail time, focusing on rehabilitation and personal development.
