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. Contact us today so we can get started tailoring a defense strategy on your behalf.
