Common Beverly Hills Criminal Cases We Handle

Our criminal defense lawyers in Beverly Hills have firsthand experience with how law enforcement and district attorneys build criminal cases. Some of our attorneys have even worked as police officers or prosecutors themselves. However, our focus is now on fighting for our clients and defending them against all types of criminal charges in California, including those specific to Beverly Hills. We have the knowledge, experience, and dedication to protect our clients’ rights and provide them with the strongest defense possible. Common cases we take include:

Theft Crime Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills is known for its high-end boutiques and retail establishments, which unfortunately makes it a target for theft crimes. Retailers in Beverly Hills take theft offenses seriously and often press for prosecution. Our law firm provides legal representation for a wide range of theft crimes, including Petty Theft, Grand Theft, Auto Theft, Identity Theft, Burglary, Carjacking, Armed Robbery, Robbery, Shoplifting, and Embezzlement. Depending on the specific circumstances and the value of the stolen goods, these crimes can be charged as either misdemeanors or felonies. Penalties for theft crimes can be severe, with the potential for high fines, probation, restitution, or even imprisonment. It is crucial to have experienced legal counsel to defend your rights and mitigate the potential consequences.

Sex Crimes Beverly Hills

Law enforcement agencies, including the Beverly Hills Police Department, frequently conduct stings in and around Beverly Hills targeting individuals involved in sex crimes like lewd conduct, Sexual Assault and Sexual Battery, Prostitution, Human Trafficking, Rape, Statutory Rape, Solicitation, Child Pornography, Indecent Exposure, Internet Sex Crimes, Pimping & Pandering or those involved in the solicitation or advertisement of prostitution, including through online platforms or in vehicles. These stings often involve the use of undercover decoys positioned in parks, restrooms, and other public places. Being arrested or cited for a sex crime can be extremely embarrassing, which is why it is crucial for anyone facing such charges to contact a Beverly Hills criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. In many cases, an attorney can make all court appearances on behalf of someone facing charges, eliminating the need for their personal appearance in court. Courts and prosecutors tend to be particularly strict when dealing with individuals who have multiple prior convictions or arrests for prostitution.

Domestic Violence Crime Beverly Hills

In Beverly Hills California, courts and prosecutors treat domestic violence convictions with great seriousness, imposing significant criminal penalties due to recent high-profile incidents. Law enforcement officers adopt a proactive approach by arresting one or both parties involved in a domestic violence incident. These cases may be referred for felony filing consideration, even if the individuals involved do not wish to pursue criminal charges. Early involvement of a skilled Beverly Hills criminal defense lawyer is crucial in domestic violence cases and can often result in charges being rejected or significantly reduced. Convictions for domestic violence, including sexual violence, physical violence, psychological and emotional abuse, elder abuse, spousal abuse, child abuse, child neglect, corporal injury to a spouse or cohabitant, domestic battery, child endangerment, stalking, and violation of restraining orders, can have far-reaching collateral consequences with lifelong impacts.

DUI Crime Beverly Hills

In California, driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) higher than 0.08% is considered illegal, and individuals found in violation of this limit can face charges of driving under the influence (DUI). We handle a wide range of DUI-related charges in California, including underage DUI, multiple DUIs (first, second, third, or fourth offense), DUI accidents, commercial DUI, DUI drugs, DMV hearings, unlawful police stops, drunk driving, misdemeanor DUI, felony DUI causing great bodily injury, commercial license DUI, hit and run, vehicular manslaughter, DMV hearings, reckless driving, driving with a suspended or revoked license, and traffic violations.

Drug Crimes Beverly Hills

While Proposition 64 has reduced certain penalties related to marijuana use and possession in California, it’s important to note that there are still several offenses in Beverly Hills that can lead to serious criminal charges. Possessing large amounts of marijuana or attempting to mail it out-of-state, for example, can result in possession for sale or sales charges, which are considered serious felonies. It’s also illegal to drive under the influence of marijuana, which can lead to the loss of driving privileges and potential jail time. Law enforcement in the Beverly Hills area actively monitors drug-related activities, including the use, possession, and sale of illegal narcotics like heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, and PCP, as well as controlled substances obtained without a valid prescription. Offenses such as drug manufacturing, possession of paraphernalia, marijuana cultivation and sale, driving under the influence of drugs, selling fake drugs, forging prescriptions, and possession or transportation of controlled substances for sale can result in felony or misdemeanor charges. Law enforcement agencies and prosecutors often pursue felony charges when there is evidence suggesting intent to sell, such as the quantity of drugs and materials associated with drug sales. Selling or transporting drugs is a serious offense that carries significant criminal penalties upon conviction. Defendants accused of marijuana-related crimes in Beverly Hills may have various potential defenses, making it crucial to have the representation of a skilled criminal defense attorney in the area.

Violent Crimes Beverly Hills

Violent crimes are taken very seriously in Beverly Hills, including offenses such as assault and battery, robbery, homicide, manslaughter, kidnapping, arson, hate crimes, murder, criminal threats, false imprisonment, hit and run, assault with a deadly weapon, gang-related offenses, and gun crimes. The severity of assault charges can range from misdemeanors to more serious crimes involving deadly weapons or causing significant bodily harm. In cases where the victim of assault or battery is a spouse, family member, or household member, specific sentencing requirements such as restraining orders, restitution, and mandatory community service may apply to the defendant. Threatening violence towards another person, even if done without serious intent, is treated seriously in Beverly Hills. Criminal threats can be charged as felonies, resulting in potential prison or jail sentences with extensive probation conditions. Law enforcement will pursue charges against those responsible for verbal threats, as well as individuals accused of sending threatening text messages or emails. It’s important to note that in some cases, the defendant may be falsely accused of making threats or the threat may not meet the legal definition of a criminal threat. Hit and run incidents can be charged as misdemeanors if only property damage occurs, but felony charges can be filed if another person is injured. Early intervention by an experienced criminal defense law firm in Beverly Hills can sometimes impact whether a case is referred for criminal prosecution. In certain hit and run situations, the driver may have panicked or been unaware of the accident, leading to potential resolutions that do not involve criminal charges.

White-Collar Crimes Beverly Hills

White collar crimes in Beverly Hills typically involve allegations of fraud and theft. These nonviolent offenses can include identity theft, credit card fraud, insurance fraud, real estate fraud, bankruptcy fraud, insider trading, extortion, mortgage fraud, healthcare fraud, welfare fraud, check fraud, securities fraud, financial fraud, false financial statements, forgery, internet fraud, wire and mail fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, Medicare fraud, tax evasion, and investigations that target professionals such as doctors and lawyers. Individuals may only become aware that they are the target of a white collar investigation when served with a search warrant at their home or office. Depending on the nature of the offense, charges may be filed at the state or federal level. White collar crimes are typically complex due to the abundance of evidence involved. Forgery, which includes using an official seal or signature to commit fraud, is taken seriously in Beverly Hills and can result in lengthy prison sentences if convicted, as it is considered a potential felony. Extortion, a serious felony offense in Beverly Hills, involves threatening someone to compel them to perform a specific action or pay the extorter. Successful individuals and professionals are often targeted for extortion. Credit card fraud is increasingly prevalent in Beverly Hills and often results in the theft of substantial sums of money or property. Prosecutors take these offenses seriously, and the penalties can be severe. Identity theft offenses have also seen a rise in the Beverly Hills area. These crimes can range from complex theft schemes to simple unauthorized use of someone’s credit card. In dealing with white collar investigations, early intervention by a skilled criminal defense law firm in Beverly Hills is crucial, as these investigations can span months or even years.

Expungements Beverly Hills

Individuals with past criminal convictions or currently on probation may have the opportunity to have their conviction expunged. Filing for expungement or early termination of probation must follow legal requirements, so consulting with a Beverly Hills criminal defense attorney is important. Factors considered by the Court for expungement include suitable representation. The process does not happen immediately and usually involves a court hearing for the judge to decide on granting the expungement.

Beverly Hills Jail And Court

Arrestees are booked by Beverly Hills police at the Beverly hills jail situated at 464 North Rexford Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210.

Cases are heard at the Beverly Hills Courthouse, located at: 9355 Burton Way, Beverly Hills, CA 90210, (310) 281-2400.

How Criminal Justice Process Works

Criminal cases typically start with someone getting arrested. After being booked, the majority of arrestees may be released by posting bail. In some cases, defendants get released on their own recognizance without having to pay bail. Only rarely are people held in custody without bail, such as flight-risks or murder suspects.

The arraignment is the first court date. This is where the defendant gets formally charged. Defendants must be present, though judges typically waive their appearance if they have a private attorney appearing for them.

When a defendant misses a required court hearing, the court will order that a bench warrant be issued. The bench warrant will remain active until the defendant (or his/her lawyer) submits a motion with the court to quash the warrant; then the court will schedule a hearing where the defendant (or his/her attorney) will try to convince the judge to recall the warrant. The judge usually grants “motions to quash” as long as the defendant is not a serial no-shower. It is rare for a criminal case to reach trial. Typically, the prosecutor and defense attorney negotiate a resolution that may involve reducing or dismissing the charges. This negotiation period sometimes takes a few minutes. In other cases, it can stretch on for months. It is not unusual for both sides to agree to a plea deal right before a trial is scheduled to move forward.

Some plea bargains require the defendant pleading guilty or no contest to a criminal charge. After the plea, the judge will sentence the defendant. In nearly all cases, the judge will agree to whatever sentence the D.A. and defense attorney agreed to. However, the judge has the discretion to reject the terms of the plea.
Each California crime usually carries a range of possible fines and jail time as its penalty. But in many cases, defendants are eligible to be placed on probation. And then the defendant may be able to get out of doing any time as long as he/she abides by the terms of probation. If the defendant finishes probation successfully, then the criminal case will end.

    My family had an urgent matter late on a Friday night. Cyrus took our call at 10p, listened to our situation, and answered all our questions. He was thorough in his explanations and addressed our concerns. What we appreciated the most was that he was not pushy and walked us through different approaches for our situation. We have not needed legal representation yet, but with Cyrus’ flexibility, transparency, and straight forwardness, we would highly recommend him.

    Dedicated Attorney I have had the privilege of knowing attorney Cyrus Tabibnia since 2010, when he used to be a dedicated Board member at our local Bar Association in Los Angeles. He has always been respected by his colleagues for his legal contribution to the members of the Bar Association. While interacting with him professionally, I have found him to be a man of integrity, a competent counsel and zealous advocate for his clients in a variety of civil and criminal cases. Despite his busy professional schedule, Cyrus adheres to his family values and keeps his precious friendship with the rest of us. I am honored to call Cyrus a colleague and endorse him for the services that he offers to the public.

    Several years ago, I was contending with a serious legal issue. Out of the blue, I became aware that a corporation had obtained a large civil money judgment against me, in court, and on a case I was not aware of. When I became apprised of the judgment and the company's efforts to enforce the debt against me, I became angry and concerned. How would this case and judgment affect my financial future? Was there any way to fix this? I approached several other attorneys for assistance, but they all said the same thing: that because the judgment was over a year old (almost 2 years old, actually) it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to remove the judgment and to re-open the case. Given what other attorneys had told me about my case, I was not hopeful. But I decided to turn to and hire the Tabibnia Law Firm because I was aware of their strong reputation in both civil law matters and criminal defense cases. Mr. Tabibnia went out of his way to fight for me. To my great surprise, he convinced the court to set aside the judgment against me and to re-open the case. And months after getting the case re-opened, I was astonished when he then got the case completely dismissed! So, I went from having a large money judgment against me to getting the judgment removed and case dismissed in a matter of months. Throughout the process, I found Mr. Tabibnia to be honest, aggressive, competent and extremely fair with his fees. Most importantly, he kept me informed throughout the case. I cannot recommend the Tabibnia Law Firm highly enough.
