About me

My name is David Alexander Russomanno, and I am an aggressive, relentless and knowledgable criminal defense attorney based in Los Angeles.  I defend my clients in all of the courts in California.  I approach every case, misdemeanor or felony with the same aggressive attitude and, most importantly, experience to provide you with the best possible disposition, such as a dismissal or acquittal. If you or someone close to you has been arrested, it is of the utmost importance that you retain a criminal defense attorney immediately because, among many things, certain rights inherent to a defendant can be waived if you wait too long.


I am licensed with the State Bar of California and admitted to practice before all California State courts and the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
