WHY HIRE A CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER FROM OUR FIRM?

Our legal team understands just how much is at stake if you have been arrested, are facing criminal charges or are under investigation by the police in or around Los Angeles. We act quickly to assert our clients' Constitutional rights. We provide the tireless defense counsel that makes a difference in seeking the best possible results for their cases.

Though criminal charges may not have been filed against you at this point, taking preventative measures is crucial. If we are able to get involved to handle your case during the investigatory phase, we may be able to negotiate with the District Attorney's Office to have your charges lowered or dropped altogether.

A key characteristic that sets our firm apart from the rest is our trial readiness. Many firms talk about their trial experience, but few actually have what it takes to successfully advocate for a client before a judge and jury. The Los Angeles criminal defense attorneys at Okabe & Haushalter have handled some of the largest criminal court trials not only in California, but throughout the nation.

Representing a client in state or federal court requires a certain level of skill. This is nothing new to us. You won't have to worry about our readiness or experience when it comes to representing you in even the most complex and aggressive criminal court trials. Our attorneys have earned honors from the American Trial Lawyers Association such as "Top 40 Under 40" ratings.

In handling any type of criminal case, we take care to provide the one-on-one attention that enables us to understand the exact approach that should be taken on each individual client's behalf. We take an aggressive stance. We do not back down in spite of what evidence has been brought against a client and will utilize all of our experience and resources on their behalf. With a criminal defense lawyer at our offices, you have the opportunity to seek a case result that helps you avoid imprisonment and other life-changing penalties.
