Our top-rated defense firm specializes in the defense of criminal and DUI cases in the following courthouses: Van Nuys Courthouse, San Fernando Courthouse, Sylmar Juvenile, Burbank Courthouse, Glendale Courthouse, Pasadena Courthouse, Pasadena Juvenile, Santa Clarita Courthouse, Antelope Valley, and other Los Angeles Courtrooms.
Our criminal defense attorneys have worked for many years in local Valley and Los Angeles courtrooms, having appeared daily in front of the same judges, court staff, and prosecutors. Our defense lawyers are highly-respected in the Los Angeles Superior Court system, and possess close professional working relationships with the people responsible for operating the courtrooms and prosecuting the cases. Our main office is directly across the street from the Van Nuys Jail and Criminal Courthouse. We have other offices for trial preparation and client conferences in Santa Clarita, Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, and Los Angeles.
The firm of Kestenbaum Eisner & Gorin, LLP, has represented thousands of individuals singled out during criminal investigations and charged with all levels of crimes, in state and federal court. We have successfully investigated, defended, and tried hundreds of cases to verdict for various criminal charges including: Violent Crimes, Sex Crimes, Domestic Violence, Theft and Fraud, Burglary, DUI, Internet Sex Crimes, Internet Fraud Crimes, Weapons charges, Bench Warrants, Juvenile Crime, and Drug Offenses. We are dedicated to providing our clients with unfailing and aggressive criminal defense services from the moment an incident arises through the conclusion of the case, no matter how long it takes! We understand that a criminal conviction, even for the smallest crime, can have far reaching and life-long consequences. That is why we are tenacious in fighting for our clients, getting charges dropped before court, or reduced and dismissed before trial.
Immediate Steps to Defending Your Case with the Police and D.A.
Often the person under arrest, if unfamiliar with the process, is overwhelmed, scared and unable to give any information to frantic family and friends. Furthermore, the individual will be subject to direct police questioning and other law enforcement techniques designed to elicit information which will be used against the client during the prosecution. The following law enforcement agencies patrol Los Angeles, San Fernando Valley, Pasadena, and Santa Clarita Valley: Los Angeles Police Department (Van Nuys, West Valley, Devonshire, Mission, and Foothill), the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (Santa Clarita, Lost Hills), Burbank Police Department, Pasadena Police Department, Glendale Police Department, and San Fernando Police Department.
It is imperative that experienced criminal counsel be called into the case as early as possible to protect the individual's rights and successfully guide them through this dangerous process. Our criminal and DUI attorneys provide this expertise and get involved immediately to protect our clients from making costly mistakes at this early stage of the process. We contact the police, contact the prosecutor, visit the client in custody, and appear in court immediately. At the first sign of trouble we begin doing what we have been doing for over 50 years, delivering a hard hitting legal defense.
In the pre-filing defense phase, we strive to prevent the filing of criminal charges even before you go to court. We have a private investigator on staff that is able to research and locate defense evidence and witnesses even before the prosecution. Our early intervention in state and federal prosecutions has led to many cases being dropped or reduced before reaching the courtroom. We have a staff of paralegals and associates who work as a team in helping to gather the necessary evidence and documentation to prevent the case from even reaching the courtroom. Our lawyers and staff speak Spanish, Armenian, and Russian.
If the case gets to arraignment, where the criminal charges are first announced in open court, we work aggressively to Reduce Bail and obtain an O.R. – own recognizance – release. The sooner we can intervene and start preparing a defense, the better the case outcome!
Immediate 24/7 Response to Your Case after Criminal Arrest
When an individual is arrested, there are many factors that must immediately be managed, including the fact that the arrest may have taken place in the middle of the night, the early hours of the morning, on a holiday or during the weekend. The criminal justice system operates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, every week of the year, and so does the criminal defense firm of Kestenbaum Eisner & Gorin, LLP. Any client, whether new to the Firm or with an existing case, can reach the Firm in the event of an emergency 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No client should ever be left alone to deal with the authorities without expert criminal defense representation.
