San Fernando Criminal Defense Attorney

Former Prosecutor on Your Side

The city of San Fernando is located within the San Fernando Valley with Sylmar to the north, Sunland and Tujunga to the east, Pacoima to the south, and Mission Hills to the west. San Fernando provides quick and easy access to the Interstate 5, the Interstate 210, the 118 and the 405 freeways. While the city's roots date back hundreds of years to when it was named after Mission San Fernando Rey de España, today the city is not only culturally rich, but it has its fair share of crime and gang activity as much of LA does. San Fernando is served by the San Fernando Police Department which has in the past requested assistance from the LAPD during major incidents.

If you or someone you care about has recently been arrested in San Fernando or anywhere else in the San Fernando Valley, we urge you to speak with a criminal defense attorney from Taub & Taub, P.C. right away. Suspects in criminal investigations have legal rights, but the problem is there are a lot of people who have no idea what their rights are or how to invoke them. Police are required to read you what are called your "Miranda rights" when you are being questioned and this is to ensure the admissibility of anything you say. However, under your Miranda rights, you have the right to remain silent and you have a right not to answer any questions without having an attorney present, and it's important that you exercise these rights!

Our law enforcement officers may be good, but they aren't perfect. Overzealous investigators can collect evidence in violation of your search and seizure rights or without a warrant, and they can force people to endure hours and hours of exhaustive questioning only to coerce a false confession out of the person. Sadly, false confessions are a very real cause for concern and innocent people have been imprisoned for life for crimes they did not commit only to be freed decades later or not at all.

As your attorneys, we believe you are innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and even if you made a mistake, that doesn't mean the state has enough evidence to convict you. Since the burden of proof is on the prosecution, it's our job to point out any and all flaws and weaknesses in their case in order to weaken its credibility, one puzzle piece at a time. Without a tireless and tenacious San Fernando criminal defense attorney, what do you stand to lose? Your freedom? Your job? Your family? Don't let your future depend on the weak leadership of a public defender, instead trust you fate in the hands of a former prosecutor such as attorney Richard F. Taub who not only knows defense, but knows the prosecution. He draws from his former experience as a state prosecutor, which enables him to be one step ahead of the prosecution and it also allows him to make sound decisions regarding making plea bargains or going to trial because he knows what will serve his clients' best interests.

Aggressively Handling DUI & Drug Crimes

Due to the fact that one of the most common crimes people are arrested for is DUI, our firm spends a significant time on these cases, whether they involve alcohol or drugs. People often think they can't fight DUI charges but that's a common misconception. DUI charges can be fought and won, people can keep their driver's licenses and they can be prevented from getting convicted with the right circumstances and the right defense attorney. We know exactly how and where to challenge the legality of the traffic stop and whether law enforcement had probable cause to stop you. We also know how to challenge field sobriety tests as well as blood alcohol evidence. If you have been arrested for DUI, having the right attorney can make or break your case, and we would be more than happy to help you challenge your charges.

Have you been arrested for domestic violence or has your partner taken out a temporary or permanent restraining order against you? Domestic violence is a serious situation and the ramifications of a conviction can have life-altering consequences for the accused. The accused can be forced to leave their home and their contact with their children can be limited, supervised, or stopped altogether. What's more, a conviction can entail from months in jail to years in prison, and it can include thousands of dollars in fines if it's prosecuted as a felony offense. We understand the sensitive nature of your situation and are here to defend your rights and seek out a positive outcome where your life doesn't have to be interrupted anymore than it already has been.
