You Meet the Partners and Associates Who Litigate Your Case, Not a Case Manager

At Eisner Gorin LLP, our firm partners and associates personally litigate your case. Many firms on the internet extol their virtues and "expertise" in criminal and DUI defense matters, but in reality specialize in marketing. You do not meet your lawyer at the first meeting, but rather with a case manager. Our law firm does not have case administrators working on, or preparing, your case for court. In our firm, you will speak to the lawyer on your case and have regular updates on the case's status. It is of utmost importance for you determine which criminal defense attorney will actually handle your criminal case at critical proceedings. You have the right to know this information before you retain a law firm’s defense services. Depending on the severity of the charges you are facing, your case will always be personally handled by a two or three-attorney team at Eisner Gorin LLP.

Licensed Private Investigator On-Site

A strong defense begins with the facts. Our Los Angeles Criminal Defense lawyers work with a premier licensed private investigator.

We don't rely on police investigations - we get the facts ourselves and we can start investigating your case immediately. Pre-Filing Intervention has led to numerous successful results before the case reached the courtroom. It is a well-known fact that witnesses can be swayed or intimidated by the police, and our ability to get recorded statements or physical evidence early in an investigation can prevent that from happening. Witnesses often lose their memory or change their position, so memorializing their statements early is imperative to a successful defense.

Local Criminal Defense Specialists

Our law office is located across the street from the Van Nuys Courthouse, the police station, and the prosecutor's office. We also have a law office in Los Angeles, ensuring that early intervention in your case can begin immediately. An aggressive defense can sometimes mean your case is rejected, dismissed, or filed as a misdemeanor rather than a felony.

California's Proposition 47

November 2014 - California voted into effect this important measure to reduce crimes that were previously felonies to misdemeanors. It permits all those who have been convicted, including those who have already served their sentence, to have their offense deemed a misdemeanor under the new Penal Code section 1170.18. If you are unsure whether or not you qualify for the reduction, find out more information on our California Proposition 47 page.
