You are innocent unless proven guilty and the burden of proving your guilt rests entirely upon the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office in the Van Nuys Branch.  It may be possible to reduce the charges against you to a lesser offense or otherwise negotiate an alternative resolution to your case.  I can help answer some of the questions you may have regarding your case, such as:

  •  Did the police violate my constitutional rights?
  • What are the next steps in the legal process?
  • What are the chances of accomplishing a reduction in the charges?
  • Is it possible to be incarcerated for my alleged offense?
  • Are there any alternative programs to avoid possible incarceration?

When you are looking for a lawyer, you need aggressive and experienced counsel to successfully defend your rights.  I have handled countless criminal cases in the Van Nuys Superior Court.  When you are facing criminal charges, don’t risk your liberty and future.

Van Nuys is in the heart of the San Fernando Valley and home to about 100,000 people; the main thoroughfare, Van Nuys Boulevard, is noted for its car dealerships, its “Auto Row”. It also functions similar to a “county seat” for the Valley, with its Government Center (Erwin Street Mall) containing a branch of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Van Nuys police station, the Van Nuys offices for Los Angeles City Hall, Van Nuys State Office Building and a branch of the Los Angeles Public Library.

The 1945 General Motors Van Nuys Assembly Plant, a major manufacturing facility for General Motors’ Chevrolet division along with aerospace and defense plants in neighboring cities led to a prosperity which inspired many to call the San Fernando Valley “America’s suburb” (as in Kevin Roderick’s book). Neighboring Panorama City sprung up: a thousand tract homes and 1950s mall, all on the promise of GM’s new factory.

And “America’s suburb” had its own cultural institution—Wednesday night “cruising” on Van Nuys Blvd. If George Lucas and his movie American Graffiti was supposedly about Lucas’ own Modesto teenage life, San Fernando Valley teenagers would disagree. Thousands of teenagers and their rebuilt 1940s and 1950s, cars would flood Van Nuys Blvd. every Wednesday night—for years—a “rite of passage” for any Valley teenager. But by the 1980s, times had changed, and LAPD stopped the tradition.
