About Me

Amongst the various interests I have is my lifelong love for Latin Music, Salsa. Latin Jazz. I play conga's and have produced 3 CD's which are available on www.itunes.com. Along with my Criminal Law background and Juvenile Law background, I have acquired a fairly comprehensive working knowledge of the music industry, laws and the bs that surrounds it..... You can watch my friend Scheila Gonzales and her fabulous sax solo on TV. she plays regularly with the Zappa Band. I have many clients from the Industry. I am also writing a mystery novel which utilizes many characters that may have resemblance to characters living and dead throughout my career all of which is purely coincidental.


 


Amongst the loves of my life are my wife and my adopted rescue mutt Lucy who we have had since she was 3 months old, check out her picture above.

    I endorse this lawyer's work. After 26 years in the Criminal and Juvenile Departments of the largest criminal court in the country, Mr.Gold is a walking library of knowledge and wisdom in the art of criminal defense. Mr. Gold has practiced in both Federal and State Courts since becoming an attorney in 1971. Prior to his 26 years as a Criminal and Juvenile Superior Court Commissioner, Mr. Gold practiced law as a criminal defense attorney. Amongst his cases, Mr. Gold handled the "largest" shipment of Quaaludes ever to be sent from the Los Angeles Airport. His client was facing a sentence of 53 years in federal prison, but "The Commissioner" was able to get his client a probationary sentence with no jail time. "The Commissioner" also handled the famous "film pirate cases" where his clients were being criminally charged with intellectual property theft and copyright infringement in Federal Court.
