Dealing with criminal charges is a frightening experience.

At Schwartz & Naderi, our legal team is a knowledgeable and aggressive group of criminal defense lawyers. Our AV-rated team has been named as Super Lawyers, a distinction only awarded to the top lawyers in the country. Named Trial Attorney of the Year and on the Board of Directors for the Criminal Courts Bar Association, you can be confident that we have the skill and expertise necessary to defend you.
We carefully and thoroughly prepares each case for the defense, no matter how serious the charges. This preparation often results in discovering strong defense opportunities that can be exploited in the battle for the defense of your case. In many criminal cases, it requires an aggressive approach in order to increase the possibility of a better outcome. Our legal team includes a certified criminal law specialist and we take pride in their reputation as hard-hitting and skilled criminal lawyers. Our reputation has been earned through years of defending cases in state and federal courts in the Los Angeles area. We have over forty years of experience in the defense of criminal cases; this experience is drawn upon for every client.
Our Team Approach to Criminal Defense
At our law offices, every case is handled by a team of criminal defense lawyers. The variety of experience and knowledge shared amongst the team creates a powerful defense support for your case. In many law firms, you will be handled by a law clerk or assistant. This is not the way our firm operates. Your case will be handled by a team of criminal defense lawyers, and every aspect of the case is thoroughly reviewed and evaluated, seeking out the flaws in the case against you. Most cases have some degree of doubt that could be expanded and exploited in the defense of the client. Law enforcement errors, violation of rights, lab errors: each detail of the case will be completely assessed with the intention of discovering a viable defense strategy.
Our firm has a policy regarding communication between the client and the firm; we call it the “callback” policy. Unfortunately, many clients that have come to our firm have not had that experience at other firms. Paying legal fees and then not being able to get a return call can be very frustrating. This would violate office policy and this policy is strictly maintained. You will always be in the loop when you are represented by a criminal defense lawyer from our firm.
Criminal Defense Practice Areas
Our firm can assist clients charged with virtually any type of misdemeanor or felony criminal offense, whether in state or federal court. We also handle cases involving alleged probation violations, can protect the rights of those facing bench warrants or arrest warrants, and are experienced in filing criminal appeals after a wrongful conviction or unfair sentencing. In addition, we offer knowledgeable representation through the expungement process for those wishing to clear their criminal records. You may be facing false allegations of domestic violence, you may have been arrested for DUI or drug possession or you may be under investigation for fraud or a similar white collar crime. No matter the circumstances of your case, our team has the knowledge and resources necessary to properly address your charges.
If you or a loved or a loved one were accused of a sex crime, your situation could not be more serious. Not only could an accusation damage your reputation for the rest of your life, but a conviction will require you to permanently register as a sex offender and limit where you may live or work. We have successfully defended clients against allegations of child pornography possession and distribution as well as internet sex crimes, sexual battery, and statutory rape. Gang offenses generally include crimes regarding drugs or weapons. Although many law firms are too afraid to handle cases of this nature, we are committed to standing up for the rights of everyone, no matter how serious the situation may appear. We can also help defend people against violent offenses. Murder, manslaughter, assault, battery, and rape are all include harsh penalties and so it is imperative that you have a strong legal advocate on your side.
Contact a Los Angeles criminal lawyer prior to questioning!
When you have been arrested and charged with a crime, whether a first DUI offense or a serious felony charge, one rule holds true: do not discuss your case or answer questions until you have legal representation. In order to defend your case, you need legal counsel to advise you of your rights and how to proceed in answering questions by law enforcement. Fast action by a criminal defense lawyer from our firm can make the crucial difference in any criminal charge. Our legal team is ready to move and take the critical defense actions that may change the outcome of your case for the better.
What sets Schwartz & Naderi apart is the team approach that we apply to every case that comes our way. Rather than assigning a legal clerk or assistant to work on your case prior to handing it over to one of our attorneys, we dedicate a team of professionals to address the specifics of each criminal offense allegation that comes our way. With over 40 years of combined experience in the field of criminal defense, we feel that collectively working on a case will provide our clients with the best possibility of a successful outcome. In many cases, the knowledge and experience of one associate will differ from that of another, and by combining the resources of our entire legal group we can better ensure that your needs and best interests will be accurately represented and firmly defended during your hearing. We work together to thoroughly review your case and decide upon the best course of action for your particular circumstance.
