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, Boykoff Investigations, whose offices are located on-site in our office suite. David Boykoff, the President of Boykoff Investigations, joined our team in 2003.
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 law offices throughout Southern California, 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.
A strong defense begins immediately - not in the courtroom. As soon as you suspect you may be charged with a crime, call us!
If you are facing criminal charges,
