Aggressive Criminal Defense For Misdemeanors And Felonies

When it comes to your public record, there is no such thing as a minor criminal charge. A Class A misdemeanor can result in up to a $1,000 fine and one year in jail. Even if no jail time is included in the sentence, having a criminal charge on your record is a serious blow to your public reputation.

Flat Fee For Many Types Of Charges — And Payment Plans May Be Available
Unlike many criminal defense firms that charge an hourly rate, I often represent clients on a flat-fee basis. You pay one retainer fee and can have confidence that your case will be handled without additional billing.

If you are under investigation or have been charged with a misdemeanor or state felony offense in the Los Angeles Valley region, don't say another word to the police or prosecutor. Don't wait to see what the prosecutor will do next. Your best option for the best possible outcome is to get an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side as soon as possible.

More Than 44 Years Of Experience Aggressively Protecting People's Rights

I am attorney David M. Beerman. I started my legal career in the Los Angeles area more than 44 years ago. In 1983, I opened my solo law firm in Los Angeles based on two principles: 1) People need an attorney who will remain focused on their case; and 2) People deserve to be kept informed about their legal options and how their case is progressing. Those two simple approaches have helped my staff (of over 20 years each) and me earn a reputation for excellence.

The True Test Of Excellence In Effective Representation
Over the decades since opening our doors in 1983, more than 85 percent of our clients have come to us by way of referral.

My experience includes the full range of misdemeanor and state felony crimes in Los Angeles County, Ventura County, Santa Barbara County and Orange County courtrooms, including:

  • DUI and serious traffic violations
  • Sex offenses, including sex offender registry crimes
  • Drug charges
  • Theft and property crimes
  • Domestic violence
  • Murder, manslaughter, assault and crimes of violence
  • Guns and weapons charges

Why Is It Especially Important To Hire An Experienced Lawyer For A Felony Case?

If you have been charged with a felony offense, your defense strategy is critical. California is a "three strikes" state, which means that a conviction on three felony crimes could send you to prison for life, no matter what the sentencing guidelines might otherwise say. Having an attorney with experience to work with the prosecutor to reduce charges or find alternatives to a conviction is critical to your future and your freedom.
