The Firm

LACD (LA Criminal Defenders) is an experienced Los Angeles Criminal Defense Law Firm, which has established a reputation among clients, prosecutors, and judges as honest, trustworthy, and highly skilled practitioners.

We recognize the stress and anxiety brought about when people are faced with criminal charges that may have a devastating effect on their lives. Achieving positive results for these individuals requires attorneys steeped in California law who also possess insight into human nature.

We at LACD Law Group understand that we, as Los Angeles criminal lawyers, are expected to be compassionate and sympathetic as we listen carefully to client problems.

To prepare a solid defense strategy, we have found that practicing every day in the courtrooms of Los Angeles and surrounding counties has afforded us the opportunity to gain intimate knowledge of the reasoning used by prosecutors and judges as they assess the cases brought before them. This valuable information, and that gathered from listening to client predicaments, is then used to refute vigorously the arguments presented by district attorneys.

Underlying the entire LACD Law Group approach to winning in court is the importance of open and frequent communication. This skill is second nature to us. We know that speaking forthrightly about possible consequences and always being available to answer client questions is essential for a positive attorney-client relationship.

We have used our good communication techniques to become accomplished negotiators. Thus, if we cannot convince the judge to dismiss a case outright, we turn to plea bargaining where we use our talent to persuade as a tool to obtain the best possible results for our clients. We project confidence, and this trait leads to trust and faith in us as we work tirelessly and diligently to fight the charges brought against our clients. Hard work, perseverance, and determination are what you can expect from your Los Angeles criminal lawyer from the LACD Law Group.

Very professional and communicative, and genuinely interested in helping me through the process. They sure everything went smoothly and I couldn’t be happier. Highly recommend!
