I have years of experience handling criminal defense cases. Over those years, I have tried more than 40 jury trials with outstanding results. As a criminal defense attorney, I have achieved acquittals in cases ranging from first degree murder and other violent felonies to DUI's and theft related offenses.
I have represented literally thousands of clients in all nearly every concievable criminal situation. I always fight hard and will not rest until I have achieved the best possible result for my client.

Jeremy and I have worked against each other on hundreds of cases together and he is unquestionably one of the finest attorneys I have ever seen. He is a master of trial skills with a flawless sense of when to fight like hell and when to ease off. Jurors love him. And even if you're not planning on fighting all the way through trial, he is excellent at getting the best deals for his clients because he knows exactly where to focus to find the weaknesses of any case. He is a 10 out of 10 in my book!

I have known Jeremy for over a decade - we first met at college and then came to know each other again as deputy public defenders in L.A. County. While working for the government, Jeremy had a reputation for being extremely bright and adept in the courtroom. He is all of those things and more now that he is in private practice - we both stopped working for the government at around the same time, and have appeared in court together on several occasions. Were I to find myself in legal peril, I would not hesitate to contact him.
