Client Reviews

Have you ever had a crucible moment in your life where you know that if you don’t take swift action and get the right people involved in the situation, your life could literally be in ruins. Well, this happened to my husband and I. We were in California for a very sad occasion, to say our final goodbyes to my dear sister and celebrate her 60 years of life.

I recently found myself in need to hire a criminal defense attorney. I searched the internet, and decided on 4 attorneys to check out to see which one I felt was best for me. I chose one of the 4 and had them e-mail me a contract to sign. I filled out the contract, which included payment information. Then at the last minute, I decided to search the internet again just to confirm my decision before I e-mailed the contract back. This search...

Due to nature of my case I can't really give explicit details however I will do my best to describe what Mr. Rodriguez has done for me. When I was falsely accused of a sexual misconduct crime I did not commit I didn't know what to do. I spent days trying to find someone to represent and guide me through this troubling situation.

Sex Crimes

Sex Crimes

California considered crimes that involve sex or are sexually motivated to be particularly reprehensible. That’s why the penalties are so steep. A conviction can ultimately affect your life for decades after you’ve completed your court-imposed sentence if you’re required to register as a sex offender. The only way to prevent these consequences is by asserting a strong defense from the get-go. As Senior Deputy District Attorney, Ambrosio Rodriguez prosecuted thousands of sex crime cases. He’ll use his inside knowledge to your benefit when your future is on the line.

Violent Crimes

Violent Crimes

Do not underestimate just how aggressive the state will be in prosecuting charges for a violent crime. These crimes are unlike others because the victims tend to be vocal and involved. Prosecutors are under pressure to not only convict, but to also secure the harshest penalty they can. Whether you’ve been accused of assault, manslaughter, homicide, or another violent offense, you deserve the right to defend yourself. Our Los Angeles violent crime attorneys have been defending clients against these serious offenses for decades – and winning. We’ve secured multiple not guilty verdicts and gotten the charges dropped for countless clients. We will work diligently to secure similar results for you.

Federal Crimes

Federal Crimes

Some crimes fall under federal, rather than California state, jurisdiction. This is true for many drug crimes, as well as white-collar offenses. When you’re facing federal charges, you need an attorney who understands how the federal criminal justice system works. Our Los Angeles federal crimes attorneys have been navigating the federal court systems in California for decades, and you can trust that we’ll draw on that experience as we fight for you.

Drug Cimes

Drug Cimes

Compared to other states, California has relatively relaxed drug laws. However, the penalties for possession, selling, distributing, and/or trafficking controlled substances are still quite harsh. You might even face two separate sentences if you’re charged with both state and federal offenses. Our Los Angeles drug crime attorneys know that evidence can make or break these types of cases. That’s why we’ll carefully examine how evidence was seized by the government and if your rights might have been violated. If we suspect they were, we’ll ask the court to toss the evidence, and the charges against you, too.

Restraining Orders

Restraining Orders

Courts in California err on the side of caution when asked to issue a restraining order. Once a protective order has been served, you are legally obligated to comply. That’s true, even if the order is based on false allegations or lies. If you violate your restraining order, you can face very harsh criminal consequences, including the possibility of jail time. Our team of Los Angeles restraining order attorneys can help you advocate for yourself and fight to minimize the penalties you might face.

Theft Crimes

Theft Crimes

Whether you’ve been accused of shoplifting, burglary, or robbery, theft offenses are subject to long terms of imprisonment and steep fines in Los Angeles. Once you have a theft conviction on your record, future employers might be hesitant to trust you, and landlords might feel uneasy renting out an apartment. You can potentially stop this from happening, but only if you go on the offensive and fight any charges filed against you immediately. In representing you, our Los Angeles theft crime lawyers will pick apart the state’s case against you, identify weaknesses, and make the prosecutor’s job as hard as humanly possible. A strong defense can be the difference between walking away with your freedom and a conviction.

White Collar

White Collar

Even though they’re “victimless” crimes, white-collar offenses are still taken seriously in Los Angeles. A conviction for embezzlement, fraud, or identity theft can strip you of professional licenses and land you behind bars. These cases are usually very technical and nuanced. The state will benefit from a thorough investigation and the aid of experts – so should you. Our Los Angeles white collar crime attorneys will carefully analyze the details of your case, bring in experts for assistance, and determine which defense strategies might be best suited for your particular case.

Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence

Prosecutors in Los Angeles will not take allegations of domestic violence or abuse lightly. The state will pour countless hours and resources into an investigation. The only way to clear your name and beat the charges to make sure that you also benefit from a thorough inquiry. Our Los Angeles domestic violence lawyers will enlist the help of experts and work diligently to gather evidence to not only support your side of the story, but to discredit the claims against you, as well.

DUI

DUI

Drunk driving causes thousands of injuries and deaths in Los Angeles every year. So, it’s no surprise that the LAPD and other law enforcement agencies have ramped up efforts to combat driving while impaired. That’s why DUI arrests have increased in recent years. However, police don’t always follow the rules when stopping suspected drunk drivers, performing searches, conducting sobriety tests, or making arrests. This can be beneficial to you when you’re fighting DUI charges. Our Los Angeles DUI lawyers will carefully scrutinize every aspect of your interactions with the police, identify issues with the state’s case, and ask the court to dismiss any evidence that’s obtained in violation of your rights.

Homicide

Homicide

Homicide is perhaps the most serious crime in California. If convicted, you face the possibility of decades or life behind bars. The Death Penalty could also be on the table. Know that the prosecutors handling your case will be under intense pressure to convict, so they’ll spare no expense in building the strongest possible case against you. Our Los Angeles homicide lawyers will rely on decades of experience prosecuting and defending these serious matters. We’ll not only devise a dynamic defense strategy for you, but also undercut the prosecution’s case at every turn.
