Eisner Gorin, LLP Areas of Law Description
Eisner Gorin LLP focuses its practice exclusively on criminal defense. They will defend any crime, whether a felony or a misdemeanor. Practice includes:
– Before Charges Are Filed
If you believe that criminal charges are about to be filed against you, it is always to your benefit to speak with a reputable criminal defense attorney. Oftentimes, your criminal defense attorney can review your case and discover evidence that may be used to your advantage before charges are filed. After carefully screening your case, your lawyer may be able to present substantial evidence to prosecutors that will dissuade them from filing criminal charges against you. Even if criminal charges never get filed by the District Attorney, you will benefit immensely from the advice and guidance of a skilled defense lawyer.
– Domestic Violence
There are also a large number of domestic violence and domestic abuse cases that are filed as the result of a bitter divorce or custody battle. While Eisner Gorin LLP limits its involvement in criminal representation, we work closely with your family law attorney to prevent the criminal system from becoming a weapon in family court. Domestic violence and domestic abuse crimes can include the following: Assault and battery; Criminal trespass; Harassment; Reckless endangerment; Restraining order violations; Sexual assault; Spousal rape; Stalking; Kidnapping; False imprisonment.
– Theft Offenses
A theft crime is a criminal act of taking another individual’s personal property without the individual’s consent. In California, theft crimes are classified as grand theft or petty theft. Frequently committed theft crimes include shoplifting, carjacking, burglary, robbery, armed robbery, credit card fraud, identity theft, vehicular theft, embezzlement, larceny, and money laundering. Theft crime charges and legal penalties will depend upon the type of theft crime committed and the value of the property stolen. If the defendant is a repeat offender, he/she may be subject to enhanced criminal charges and sentencing.
– Property Crimes
Property crime is a criminal act that occurs when a person takes another person’s property without consent. When a person destroys another person’s property, it is also considered a property crime. Commonly committed property crimes include larceny, burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson, vandalism, robbery, and all other theft-related offenses. Due to the life-altering legal consequences that are involved, it is always in a person’s best interest to obtain the services of a criminal defense attorney who has the legal background and knowledge it takes to successfully fight property crime charges.
– DUI / DWI Law
Our DUI attorneys work hard defending our clients arrested for drunk driving. After many years of experience defending DUI/DWI cases, we have an in-depth knowledge of California DUI Laws, the court process, Department of Motor Vehicles (“DMV”) licensing hearings, and all aspects of California DUI defense and related matters. We represent many clients from outside of California who get arrested while visiting here. Our office can make all court appearances for you, thereby allowing you to continue working without interruption. Some of the DUI matters we handle include the following: Drunk driving; Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs; Driving while intoxicated; Field sobriety tests; Breath testing; Alcohol evaluations; Driver’s license suspension; Underage drinking and driving; Vehicular assault; Vehicular Homicide.
– White Collar Crimes
At Eisner Gorin LLP, a Southern California criminal defense law firm, our white-collar crime attorneys are tenacious negotiators and fierce litigators who can handle complex voluminous evidence. They have had many years of criminal law experience. Our white-collar crime lawyers aggressively defend our clients charged with or being investigated for a white-collar crime. Some possible white-collar crimes include the following: money laundering, pyramid schemes, counterfeiting, embezzlement, fraud, tax evasion, RICO, extortion, computer crimes, forgery, bribery, and bankruptcy fraud.
– Violent Crimes
Violent crimes are criminal acts that involve the use or threat of violence. In most cases, violence is used as a means to an end, especially during crimes such as rape and robbery. During the commission of a violent crime, the offender may or may not use a weapon. If the offender uses a weapon while committing a violent crime, the offense will usually be classified as a felony. In California, commonly committed violent crimes include robbery, armed robbery, assault, battery, murder, manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter, gang crimes, kidnapping, arson, domestic violence, stalking, hate crimes, carjacking, sexual assault, and terrorist threats.
– Sex Crimes
With high-profile sex crimes frequently making the news, it has become more difficult for those accused of sex crimes to plea bargain or gets a fair trial. These charges are very easy to make and very difficult to defend since the alleged crimes usually happen in a one-on-one situation, with no independent witnesses or evidence. There are a variety of sex acts that are considered illegal. Commonly committed sex crimes include rape, statutory rape, date rape, lewd conduct, indecent exposure, sexual abuse, sexual assault, child pornography, child molestation, prostitution, pandering, and distribution of illegal pornography.
– Three Strikes
Once a person has been convicted of a three-strikes crime, he/she may be punished with imprisonment, fines, court-ordered counseling, probation, parole, or community service. In the state of California, commonly committed three-strikes crimes include arson, armed robbery, carjacking, kidnapping, rape, murder, manslaughter, drug trafficking, bank robbery, and assault with a deadly weapon. Any person that commits one of the aforementioned crimes may receive a “strike” on his/her criminal record. Once a person has one strike on his/her criminal record, he/she is susceptible to enhanced sentencing if he/she is convicted in the future.
– Federal Crimes
We have had tremendous results in defending federal cases throughout the United States, and have strategic alliances with law firms in the 50 states. We appear almost daily in the Central District of California, the United States District Court in Los Angeles, and are frequently appointed by local federal judges to represent criminal defendants. Attorney Alan Eisner is recognized as a federal criminal defense expert, having been named to the Federal Defense Panel by the Central District Court. He had defended cases in federal court for over ten years, helping clients with Grand Jury investigations, on bail issues, in pretrial litigation, and injury trial work.
– Internet Crimes
To provide our Internet crime clients the strongest defense against charges of online fraud or other internet-related charges, we work together with computer forensic experts. They know, as we do, that manipulation and morphing of computer evidence by law enforcement investigators cannot be ruled out. When federal or state law enforcement pursues suspects through falsification of their own identities, we evaluate the circumstances: was illegal entrapment involved in the investigation? In California, frequently committed internet crimes include internet fraud, phishing, credit card fraud, illegal downloading, child pornography, illegal pornography, and illegal distribution of viruses/spam.
– Drug and Narcotic Offenses
If you’re facing criminal charges for possession, possession for sale, trafficking, manufacture, transporting, sales, meth, marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, rock cocaine, heroin, pills, don’t talk to the police first. You have the right not to talk to the police. If you think you’re a suspect or you’ve been charged with a serious drug crime in state or federal courts, let us do the talking for you. Anything you say is likely to get you deeper into trouble, even if you’re innocent—especially if you’re innocent.
– DMV Suspensions
As Former Los Angeles Prosecutors, our firm specializes in aggressive Criminal Defense work in Southern California Courts – in the area of DMV Suspensions. Driving on a suspended license is a violation of Vehicle Code 14601 and is a misdemeanor offense with a mandatory jail sentence – especially if there are prior convictions that are alleged by the prosecution. Our Los Angeles criminal lawyers have tremendous experience in defending such charges throughout Los Angeles County, the San Fernando Valley, and the Santa Clarita Valley.
– Hit and Run
California State Law requires anyone involved in a traffic accident, regardless of fault, to stop immediately and exchange driver’s licenses and insurance before leaving the scene. Hit & Run charges can either be filed as either a misdemeanor or a felony. The deciding factor is the amount of property damage and the seriousness of the injury. If a serious injury is sustained by a passenger or other party, felony charges can be filed.
our firm specializes in aggressive Criminal Defense work in Southern California Courts – in the area of Warrants. Once a person is aware that a bench warrant or arrest warrant has been issued in his/her name, it is always in his/her best interest to retain the services of a qualified criminal defense attorney. A warrant can lead to enhanced legal consequences such as jail time, fines, and probation. For this reason, it is always advisable that people consult with a defense attorney once a warrant has been issued for their arrests or detainment.
– Probation Violations
Probation violation occurs when a person fails to adhere to the terms of his/her probation. When a person does not comply with the terms of his/her probation, he/she may be punished with the maximum sentence for the crime in which he/she was placed on probation for committing. Once a person has been placed on probation, he/she may have to report to a corrections officer on a regular basis, or complete community service activities. If a person fails to complete the terms of his/her probation, he/she can be charged with probation violation by California law enforcement.
Because criminal records contain publicly accessible information, it is always to a person’s advantage to consider expungement or sealing. When a person has a negative mark on his/her criminal record, it can greatly limit his/her employment, educational, and housing options. A person’s criminal record may also prohibit him/her from obtaining student or bank loans. For this reason, it is in the person’s best interest to file for sealing or expungement. Eisner Gorin LLP is a criminal defense law firm that has been helping clients throughout Southern California seal and expunge their arrest records for years.
– Juvenile Crimes
Juvenile crime is any criminal act that is committed by a minor (person below the legal age of 18). In California, all juvenile crimes are taken very seriously by law enforcement and are vigorously prosecuted. Additionally, if the juvenile is close to the legal age of 18, or has committed a felony offense, he/she may be charged as an adult. In the state of California, commonly committed juvenile crimes include DUI, petty theft, shoplifting, assault, battery, drug possession, gang crimes, carjacking, vehicular theft, burglary, drug possession with intent to sell, sex crimes, and vandalism.
