THE STORY BEHIND ONE OF THE LONGEST RUNNING CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAW FIRMS IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY…

I began my legal mission to become the best criminal defense attorney in Los Angeles over 25 years ago. Immediately upon passing the California bar exam I opened up my own private criminal defense practice. I had the background of working for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office (which gave me an idea from the prosecutor’s side of how they investigated and prosecuted cases). At that time, in the early 1990’s Ira Reiner lost the position of District Attorney of Los Angeles County to Gil Garcetti, whose son is now the Mayor of Los Angeles. It was interesting to see the political upheaval that followed when Mr. Garcetti took office and the lead up to Ira Reiner’s defeat. I also worked for a Los Angeles Superior Court judge as his research attorney in 1992 (which gave me a great prospective on how a judge decides a case and what will really matter to them in making their decisions. I basically strategized with the judge before he made his legal rulings. This behind the scenes look at the inner workings of the DA’s Office and the process of how a judge decides cases has served me well since the first time that I appeared in court to present day.
