california criminal law: procedure and practice


Kestenbaum Eisner & Gorin LLP is a top-rated Los Angeles juvenile criminal defense firm. Our criminal defense lawyers have been helping minors arrested for Gang Crimes and Violent Offenses to obtain superior results for over 50 years in Southern California juvenile courts. When we work with our clients, we do everything possible to make sure that they receive reliable and aggressive representation in and out of court.

Our juvenile defense law firm has been rated year after year as a Top 5% U.S. Pre-Eminent Law Firm by Martindale-Hubbell, a national Lawyer Review Service. Our juvenile defense lawyers have defended numerous cases involving gang accusations, including Violent Crime, Sex Crime, Domestic Violence, Theft-Fraud, Burglary, Crimes at School, DUI and DMV Licensing, Vandalism, Weapons Charges, Bench Warrants, Drug Offenses, and other serious criminal offenses.

Any individual that is accused of committing any crime in association with his or her membership in a gang may be charged with a gang offense, a violation of Penal Code Section 186.22. It is important to note that all crimes committed in association with an individual's membership in a gang carry much harsher punishment than the same crime committed by an individual that is not affiliated with a gang. Many times individuals are incorrectly labeled as gang members and this can adversely affect them for the rest of their lives. Once a person is labeled as a gang member it will stay with him or her for life. Sometimes even close association with a gang member can result in the police labeling a person as a gang member regardless of whether or not he or she is involved with gang-related activities. An experienced juvenile defense attorney can help your child avoid being incorrectly labeled as a gang member.

The firm specializes in defending juvenile gang cases throughout the Los Angeles County Juvenile Court System including Sylmar Court, Pasadena Court, Inglewood Juvenile, Antelope Valley, Eastlake Juvenile, Long Beach, and Los Padrinos Court. It is always in your family's best interest to retain the services of an experienced and knowledgeable juvenile defense attorney who can help your family establish a successful courtroom defense.

If the prosecution is seeking to prosecute your child as an adult pursuant to a Fitness "Adult Court" Motion for a violent and serious criminal "strike" offense, our law firm works with a team of psychologists, investigators, and other experts to persuade the Los Angeles Juvenile Court that your child can be rehabilitated in juvenile court, and should not be sent to adult jail or prison. An experienced attorney will do all to make sure that as an accused gang member your child is presented in a favorable light to the court. It is important to provide testimony to the individual's good character from his family, friends, acquaintances, and co-workers.

We can help you to fight your child's case and avoid the consequences of a strike offense. At Kestenbaum Eisner & Gorin, LLP, we will provide an aggressive and impassioned defense to any gang offense charges that your loved one may be facing.
