Santa Monica Child Endangerment Attorney
Child endangerment is a criminal offense that can result in significant jail time and even a loss of contact with your children for many years. There are also other related crimes, such as child abuse, lewd acts with a minor, and domestic violence, that can have their own consequences on you and your family. If you are facing charges related to child endangerment or any other crime involving children, it is important to seek the help of an experienced Santa Monica Child endangerment attorney who can provide a strong defense and fight for the best outcome in your case. With a track record of success in the courts of Santa Monica and throughout Southern California, our firm is here to help you navigate the legal process and protect your rights. According to California Penal Code §273(a), it is illegal to place a child in a situation where they may suffer harm or death or to intentionally cause harm to a child. To be charged with child endangerment, the prosecution must prove that you deliberately inflicted harm on the child or put them in a situation where they could be injured. You do not have to directly break a law or harm a child – any willful, deliberate action that endangers a child may be grounds for child endangerment. It is important to note that child endangerment differs from child abuse because abuse requires a child to actually suffer an injury, while endangerment does not.
One important factor in these cases is whether you acted with criminal negligence or with intent. If you intentionally caused harm to a child, you may be charged with acting willfully. However, even if you did not intend to harm the child, if you acted with criminal negligence, meaning you took actions that a reasonable person would not take in a similar situation and showed a disregard for human life or safety, you may also be charged with child endangerment. Examples of criminal negligence include reckless driving and illegal drug use.

Santa Monica Criminal Defense Law Firm
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, Los Angeles criminal defense 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.
