    Los Angeles Domestic Violence Attorney

    All criminal cases are emotionally demanding, but domestic violence charges may be among the most challenging. That’s because in domestic violence cases, the government is alleging that you may have harmed a loved one or someone close to you. Legally, these cases also demand the highest level of expertise because they often come down to “he said, she said” issues and who is telling the truth.

    As you may imagine, an allegation of domestic violence can be devastating for a defendant, both emotionally and financially. Being charged with domestic violence may ruin a person’s reputation, destroy their family and lead to loss of employment. Depending on the nature of the allegations, a person charged with domestic violence may even face serious jail or prison time.

    But there are also a number of strong defenses to allegations of domestic violence. A capable, experienced and aggressive attorney can be critical to a successful defense of your case and, potentially, to your freedom. In that light, the Tabibnia Law Firm has successfully defended numerous cases involving allegations of domestic violence.

    Los Angeles Drug Possession Lawyer

    There are a number of criminal charges which relate to drug possession. In general, drug possession charges can be grouped into two categories: 1) possession of drugs for personal use, and 2) possession or manufacturing of drugs for sale. Charges stemming possession for use can result in significant punishment; however, the punishment for possession for sale tends to be much more severe.

    If you have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony drug crime in Los Angeles or Southern California, you need an experienced drug possession lawyer on your side. The penalties for a misdemeanor or felony drug crime are severe, and the consequences of a conviction can last for decades.

If you or a loved one have been charged with a drug crime, please contact Los Angeles Drug crime attorney at Tabibnia Law Firm for a free consultation today.

    Los Angeles Theft Crime Attorney

    California law defines a broad range of theft crimes. These include petty theft, grand theft, larceny, robbery, burglary, receipt of stolen property, mail theft, credit card fraud, false identification, carjacking, embezzlement, identity theft, shoplifting, theft by way of false pretenses, forgery, looting, failing to return rented or leased property, defrauding a public housing program, improper taking of lost property, and others. This extensive assortment of theft crimes come with them an equally wide scale of penalties.
    Some of the distinctions between theft crimes are more clear. For instance, under California law, petty theft (PC §484) is the wrongful taking or stealing of property valued at $950 or less. It is charged as a misdemeanor and carries a maximum term of 6 months in county jail. On the other hand, grand theft (PC§487) involves the unlawful taking of property or labor valued at over $950. Grand theft may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony and carries a maximum term of 3 years incarceration.
    While the statutory distinctions between crimes such as petty theft and grand theft are more clear, other statutes can be more complicated. Crimes such as embezzlement, theft by false pretenses and others may be less clear. That’s why being charged with a theft crime can be confusing, overwhelming and frightening and why finding an attorney with expert knowledge of and experience in the law is so crucial; it can mean the difference between losing or gaining your freedom.
    If you or a loved one have been charged with a theft crime, please contact Criminal defense Lawyer at Tabibnia Law Firm for a free consultation today.

    Areas We Serve

    Criminal Defense Law Firm Los Angeles

    Our Formula for Success

    Our for the successful representation of our clients relies on three factors:

    1) Our in-depth knowledge of the law and the legal system.

    2) The close relationships we encourage and maintain with our clients.

    3) The ties we sustain with judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement

    4) The resources at our disposal.

    First, the attorneys at our firm, including founding partner Cyrus S. Tabibnia, retain a great wealth of experience and extensive knowledge of the law and our legal system. As a graduate of UC Berkeley, and later, Loyola Law School, founding partner Cyrus S. Tabibnia has focused his career on mastering the skills and fostering the connections necessary to serve the interests of his clients.

    Second, at the Tabibnia Law Firm, we strongly believe that a key variable to effective representation of our clients is developing and maintaining a close relationship with them. In particular, facing criminal charges can be an emotionally and financially daunting experience, both for the client and their family. As such, beginning with the initial, free consultation, we sit down with the client and explain to them, in detail, the nature of the legal process and what they can expect, and to keep them fully informed about their case once the latter has commenced. Not least we do our utmost to provide cost-effective services of the highest quality. It has been our experience that encouraging client communication is important in the effective litigation of a case and in achieving client satisfaction.

    Third, law is often a relationship based and interpersonal profession. Judges, law enforcement and prosecutors (lawyers, working for the government, who file charges against defendants) are human beings whose actions and decisions reflect that reality. As such, we pride ourselves on the close relationships that we have fostered over the years with courts, prosecutors and various members of the law enforcement community. Often, these connections have made a difference in obtaining positive results for our clients.

    Fourth, fighting a case against the government is not an easy endeavor, because the Local, State and Federal governments maintain access to resources that exceed those of any individual law firm. As such, a defense firm must likewise retain assets and resources that allow it to effectively challenge the charges filed by the government. At the Tabibnia Law Firm, we maintain investigators, administrators, researchers and assistants who are dedicated to providing the highest quality of service in working to fight for our client’s rights. Together, we do everything possible to obtain successful results, while adhering to the strictest ethical standards.

    For our clients’ convenience, The Tabibnia Law Firm retains three offices: one in West Los Angeles, a second in the San Fernando Valley, and our newest location, in Orange County.

    Then one of my friends recommended Mr. Cyrus Tabibnia to be my attorney. I have to admit I did not want to hire an attorney because my money situation was not good and I did not trust attorneys. But when me and my wife visited him we felt very comfortable. Mr. Tabibnia was very knowledgable and wise and knew what he was doing. He explained everything to me and my wife. He even offered a payment plan. So we decided to hire his law firm.

    During the case Mr. Tabibnia was always available to talk to me and my wife. And later he was able to get the case against me dropped. Hiring Mr. Tabibnia was one of the best decisions I ever make. I recommend him.

    Our Work
    Felony Domestic Violence – Case Dismissed

    People v. JP (Los Angeles Superior Court, Van Nuys Division)

    Our client was charged with Felony Domestic Violence after his fiancée called 911 and claimed to law enforcement officers that he had hit her. Because she had visible injuries on her face, he was arrested and charged with a felony. He had no criminal record. And when he contacted us, he was upset, and quite worried that this case could ruin his life. He strongly maintained his innocence.

    From the beginning, it was clear that the case would be difficult, because prosecutors are generally aggressive in domestic violence cases, especially since the OJ Simpson case of the 1990’s increased pressure on law enforcement and the government to deal with abusers. Also, in this case, our client’s fiancée was cooperating with the authorities and she had very clear injuries. There was also a 911 call where she sounded scared. The only possible defenses for our client could be that either he had 1) acted in self-defense, 2) accidentally injured her or 3) that the injuries were not caused by him. But he himself denied even touching her during the incident, so the self-defense and accidental injury defenses would not work.

    Our client had revealed to us that his fiancée – the alleged victim – was an adult film actress. Our investigation further revealed that, just days before the encounter with her fiancé, she had shot scenes for an adult film that included violent scenes where the alleged victim was struck on her face a number of times. Armed with this information, as well as some contradictions in the alleged victim’s story, the government prosecutors ultimately dismissed the case against our client. He was extremely excited and relieved and we were happy to see him begin to put his life back together again. Needless to say, he called off the engagement.
