Most people believe that if they do not have a criminal history they can take on their California DUI case alone. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Averting the consequences of a DUI in California — including losing your license, mandatory probation and alcohol classes, and fines and court costs — is nearly impossible when you make a deal with the prosecutor.

Whether it is marijuana, prescription drugs, cocaine, or methamphetamines, our skilled Glendale drug crime attorneys will review your complete arrest records and understand why you were stopped, pulled over, or had your home searched before the drugs were found.
Once we understand the evidence the prosecutor’s office has against you, we will begin investigating how they obtained it and whether your rights were violated as result.

Experienced Theft, Burglary, and Robbery Defense Attorneys in Glendale, California
It is common for people to use the words theft, burglary, or robbery interchangeably. The reality is, they are quite different charges that come with significant legal penalties, including jail time.
Theft occurs when someone intentionally takes, uses, transfers, conceals, or retains possession of movable property of another without the other’s consent and with intent to deprive the owner of its use going forward.
A burglary occurs when someone intentionally enters a property without the consent of the person in lawful possession and with intent to steal or commit a felony.
Robbery occurs when someone takes property from the person or presence of the owner by using force or by threatening the imminent use of force.
If you have been charged with theft, burglary, or robbery in California, you could be facing severe penalties from the prosecution.
We can help you understand what your charges mean, the penalties associated with them, and how we can build a strategic defense to pursue the best outcome for your unique case.

California has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the United States. Because of our strict adherence to those laws, anyone who is unlawfully in possession of a firearm will be fully prosecuted by the state.
Gun charges are taken very seriously in California, which means the prosecution will pursue the maximum penalties allowed by our laws, which could include significant fines and possibly even jail time.
If you have been charged with unlawfully carrying a gun, using a firearm in the commission of a crime, or another firearms charge, contact our skilled criminal defense attorneys in Glendale today for help.

Frequently Asked Questions for Our Criminal Defense Attorneys in Glendale, California
What is the Difference Between Misdemeanor & Felony Defense Strategies in California?
A misdemeanor is a less serious crime than a felony and is typically punishable by no more than one year in jail.
A felony is defined as a crime punishable by more than one year of incarceration in a prison or jail.
What are the Most Common Reasons Someone Needs a Federal Criminal Defense Attorney in California?
Federal crimes are activities that are considered serious crimes against the nation rather than the state of California and often include child pornography, computer crimes, counterfeiting, identity theft, kidnapping, mail fraud, money laundering, and tax evasion to name a few.
If you have been charged with a federal crime in California, experience matters. The Kosnett Law Firm can help guide your case through the federal courts and work diligently to return the charges to the state, when possible. Contact us now to learn more about our federal courtroom experience.
What is a Motion to Terminate Probation in California?
A California defendant can petition the court for early termination of probation, and if granted, the conviction is usually expunged at the same time, as both motions are typically filed together.
How Can I Have My Criminal Charges Expunged in California?
California penal code 1203.4 PC allows certain criminal defendants to request a withdrawal of a guilty plea or no contest, in return to have their case dismissed.
While an expungement removes the crime, or conviction, from your record entirely, it is not available to everyone and is based on your criminal charges and criminal history. Our skilled criminal defense lawyers in Glendale can help you understand which of your charges are eligible, so you can take back control of your life.
Is Post-Conviction Relief the Same as Sealing Your Arrest Record in California?
There is a difference between post-conviction relief and sealing your arrest record in California.
California Legislation allows individual records to be sealed if the person was arrested but never convicted of a crime, so it will not show up on most background checks within the state.
Not everyone is eligible to have their records sealed, so it is important to talk with a skilled criminal defense attorney in Glendale to understand your rights before getting started.
California Legislation outlines the post-conviction relief laws that allow our attorneys to file a motion in court that seeks to vacate, modify, or reduce a conviction to improve your criminal record.
