Our firm specializes in the defense of all Child Abuse Charges, including sexual assault and molestation offenses, pursuant to Penal Code Section 273(a). When we work with our clients accused of Child Abuse and Molestation, we do everything possible to make sure that they receive aggressive representation in and out of court. That is why we have been annually selected as a Pre-Eminent Top 5% U.S. Law Firm by Martindale-Hubbell, a nationally-recognized law firm review service. In fact, Attorney Dmitry Gorin is a former Abuse and Sex Crime Prosecutor with the DA's Office and understands how these charges are investigated and proved in court – and knows where the problems often lie in the government's case.

Definition of Child Abuse and Endangerment

As defined in California Penal Code Section 273(a), the crime of Child Abuse and Endangerment involves intentionally and deliberately causing injury to a child, or placing the child in circumstances where he/she could have been harmed. The latter applies to situations where children may have been in a car with an alleged drunk driver, in a location where a methamphetamine lab was operated, or otherwise were exposed to the risk of serious bodily harm.

The offense may be pursued as either a felony or a misdemeanor by the prosecution, causing someone convicted of the crime to face the possibility of substantial jail or prison time.

Aggressive Defense to Child Abuse and Endangerment Charges

At Eisner, & Gorin, LLP, we will provide an aggressive and impassioned defense to Child Abuse charges that you or your loved one may be facing. Without powerful legal representation, an individual charged may faces consequences that can affect a client's life forever. Even the slightest allegation of Child Abuse carries tremendous stigma in our society. Often former spouses in the middle of a divorce, or estranged lovers, place children in the middle of the break up. Accordingly, an immediate investigation into the allegations is required for a robust defense in court.

Our in-house investigator is available to gather defense evidence and conduct interviews of all witnesses, before the case reaches the courtroom. We have been successful in getting abuse charges dismissed before the allegations reach formal charges in a courtroom.

We specialize in aggressively defending Child Abuse and Endangerment cases in the following courthouses: Van NuysSan Fernando, Santa Clarita, Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, Sylmar Juvenile and Los Angeles.
