Practice Areas

Drugs Crimes

Criminal cases involving drug crimes can be hard to beat because the police often have contraband as evidence; however you should know, in order for a drug-related charge to stick, prosecutors will have to prove that the individual charged was the owner of the drugs in question. If you have been charged with the possession, distribution,  or manufacturing of a controlled substance, don’t delay – schedule a free consultation immediately with Dan Melnick, an experienced drug crimes attorney.

DUI/ DRANK DRIVING

The State of California takes drunk driving charges very seriously and will aggressively prosecute drivers who are so charged. If you have been arrested for DUI, you are facing the very real possibility of a criminal conviction and you need to act quickly in order to protect your rights and your liberty. By hiring an experienced drunk driving attorney to represent you after an arrest, you can greatly increase your chances of being found innocent of your charges and retaining your driving privileges.

Domestic Violence

There are many situations in which a domestic dispute can get out of hand and lead to one or more parties being arrested for domestic violence even though no violent act occurred. Police arriving at the scene of a dispute can make an arrest based on hearsay alone without the presence of bruises or other physical evidence as probable cause. Contact our Van Nuys office to schedule a free consultation with a knowledgeable domestic violence lawyer about your legal situation today. Don’t delay, your future could depend on it!
