Have you recently been arrested for a crime in the North Hollywood area?
If so, you are probably very nervous about what the future entails, and
reasonably so. The state of California has a huge problem with crime,
especially considering its massive population, its harbors and how it
borders Mexico. In effect, the city and law enforcement has invested great
manpower and resources into combating the war on crime, the war on drugs,
and the areas widespread gang problem. Because of Los Angeles' crime
problem, not too many prosecutors are sympathetic to those who break the
law, and nor are police officers that arrest people for crimes such as
domestic violence or DUI every day. The LA area is tough and its hardened
police officers and prosecutors because of it.
Criminal convictions are not a good thing, and even a conviction for a
misdemeanor can involve incarceration in jail for up to one year, up to
$1,000 in fines, and a permanent criminal record. In this tight job market,
the last thing you want is a criminal record, because given the choice
most employers will choose to hire the applicant without any prior convictions
versus someone with a criminal history; therefore, when it's your
livelihood and your freedom that's at stake, you need to hire the
best North Hollywood criminal defense lawyer you can find to uphold your
rights in the harsh criminal justice system.
At Taub & Taub, P.C., we are deeply committed to protecting your rights
and your best interests at all times. We will not simply hold your hand
and advise you to plead guilty, anyone can do that. Instead, we will carefully
comb through all the evidence in order to search for any errors made by
overzealous investigators, weaknesses in eyewitness credibility or testimony,
and any other flaws that may exonerate you. Due to the fact that the outcome
of your case can certainly have an impact on virtually every aspect of
your life from your job to what happens to your family, we are here to
defend you 100%, and every step of the way.
Misdemeanor and Felony Cases We Handle
Have you been arrested for
domestic violence? Domestic violence refers specifically to violence between married couples,
unmarried couples, family members and roommates. It can be physical, emotional,
or financial, or it can involve sexual abuse such as rape or merely threats
of violence. Domestic violence cases are extremely sensitive by nature,
especially since a conviction can result in thousands of dollars in fines
and imprisonment, and it can force you to move out of your own home and
stay away from your own spouse and children, which can be heartbreaking.
Nothing is more personal than a domestic violence charge and sadly, these
types of cases are often built entirely on lies. We are here to defend
you against such charges, but we urge you to contact us right away so
we can begin coming up with the most viable defense strategy as quickly
Our firm has a significant amount of experience handling
DUI cases whether they involve drugs or alcohol. While most people are familiar
with getting arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, many
people aren't aware that they can get a DUI for driving under the
influence of illegal drugs, prescription drugs, or even over-the-counter
medications such as cold and allergy medicines. As long as a drug impairs
one's ability to drive safely, a driver can be arrested for DUI and
potentially convicted. Fortunately, there are many viable defenses that
can apply in DUI cases; it's just a matter of determining which one
would work best in your situation.
If you have been arrested for a drug offense involving marijuana, cocaine,
heroin, drug paraphernalia or even prescription drugs, we can help you as well.
Drug crimes are prosecuted as both misdemeanors and felonies in the state of California,
but how they are prosecuted depends on a number of factors including the
type of drug, the quantity, and what you intended to do with it. For instance,
the penalties for possessing a small amount of marijuana for personal
use are less serious than selling LSD on school grounds or at a park.
If you have been arrested for a drug offense, we will first check to see
if your search and seizure rights have been violated and if so, we may
be able to get the evidence suppressed and the charges dropped.
Were you arrested for a white collar crime?
Not all crimes involve drugs or violence, but instead involve stealing
someone's identity or stealing large amounts of money. When crimes
are nonviolent in nature and financially motivated, they are often categorized as
white collar crimes, some of which include
fraud, money laundering, investment fraud, embezzlement, and more. Oftentimes,
white collar crimes are committed by professionals under duress from their
superiors or by people that are forced into committing them. Regardless
of the force behind the act, the person being accused stands to lose their
professional license, their job and career, their livelihood and their
good reputation within the community where they live.
If you are being accused of a white collar crime or committing any other
offense, we urge you to contact a North Hollywood criminal defense attorney
from Taub & Taub, P.C. at once. As a former state prosecutor, attorney
Richard F. Taub has a wealth of insight into how the prosecution operates
