Burbank Criminal Defense Lawyer
Facing criminal charges in Burbank?
Burbank is home to Lockheed Martin (originally Loughead Aircraft Manufacturing
Company), an American aerospace company that during World War II employed
over 94,000 people and produced around 19,000 planes during the wartime
effort. The city is also a headquarters to a significant number of production
companies including Walt Disney, Warner Brothers Entertainment, Warner
Music Group, Nickelodeon, and not to mention Bop Hope Airport. Burbank
is conveniently located close to the Interstate 5, the 101, and the 134
freeways, making access to Los Angeles, Hollywood, Glendale and Pasadena
swift and convenient.
If you have recently been arrested for a crime in the Burbank area or if
you are the focus of a criminal investigation, we urge you to contact a Burbank
criminal defense attorney from Taub & Taub, P.C. right away to discuss the details
of your case. As someone who is a person of interest or someone that has
already been arrested, you have to learn about and exercise your rights
in the criminal justice system. All too often investigators and police
take advantage of people who don't know their rights and subject them
to long, arduous hours of questioning without an attorney present; this
is a huge mistake. People oftentimes don't know they don't have
to answer any questions and they aren't aware of their Miranda rights,
which include your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney.
Tough and Aggressive Legal Representation
Our firm represents individuals that have been charged with a variety of
crimes, some of which include all manners of DUIs, whether they are drug
or alcohol related, as well as all types of drug crimes involving marijuana,
cocaine, heroin, LSD, methamphetamines, prescription medications and many
more. Both drug and DUI crimes can involve imprisonment and hefty fines,
not to mention a permanent criminal record. How someone is prosecuted in a
DUI case will depend upon whether or not they submitted to a chemical test,
if they have any history of DUI convictions, their blood alcohol level
(BAC) at the time of the arrest and whether there were any aggravating
circumstances such as high BAC, excessive speeding, property damage, serious
bodily injury, or if a child was in the vehicle at the time of the arrest.
As far as
drug crimes go, the penalties depend upon the type of drug, the quantity and what
you intended to do with it, as well as your criminal history. Drug crimes
can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, and they can involve up to
years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines if convicted. If you
have been accused of any drug crime, we urge you to contact us so we can
get moving on your case right away. We will carefully comb through the
evidence to find out if your search and seizure rights were violated and
we will look for any other potential flaws that may get your charges dismissed.
We also handle
domestic violence cases, these typically occur between couples, spouses, family members
or people who have a child in common or people who live together. Domestic
violence can involve physical violence, threats of violence, sexual abuse,
child abuse, or emotional abuse. Unfortunately, it's not uncommon
for a husband and wife or a couple to get involved in an altercation and
things become physical. While women are typically the victims of domestic
violence, men can be victims as well. The problem is that when police
are called to the scene of a domestic violence dispute, they often have
no choice but to make an arrest and then the accused can face jail or
prison sentencing, up to $6,000 in fines (serious cases), and mandatory
participation in a domestic violence treatment program.
If you have been arrested for domestic violence, we can inform you of your
rights and do everything within our power to improve the outcome of your
case. We understand the nature and sensitivity of these charges and we
are committed to defending you to the fullest.
White Collar Crimes
There are a number of crimes that are nonviolent in nature and generally
financially motivated. These are called
white collar crimes and they can involve
fraud, identity theft, embezzlement, money laundering, bank fraud, and many
others. Oftentimes, white collar crimes are committed by "white collar"
professionals who have the authority and access to commit elaborate schemes,
some of which are investigated by government agencies such as the FBI.
A conviction for a white collar crime can have serious consequences; it
can involve victim restitution, imprisonment, and loss of a professional
license among other penalties. When your reputation, your career and your
freedom are gravely at stake, you need a highly competent attorney by
your side aggressively defending you and securing the best possible outcome
considering your circumstances.
Facing criminal charges is a frightening experience, especially because
you don't know what the future might hold and whether or not you will
be convicted and sent to jail or prison. We understand the predicament
you are in and the implications a conviction would have on your family,
your job, and your future. With over 40 years of combined legal experience,
and with one of our attorneys being a former state prosecutor, we are
confident that we can assess the weaknesses and strengths of your case
in order to identify the best course of action to take.
