Established and Respected Beverly Hills Attorney

Determined, discreet and compassionate criminal defense

My name is Jay Jaffe and I am a Certified Criminal Law Specialist in Beverly Hills with more than 40 years of experience. I am personally writing this summary and not handing it off to a professional website writer to do it for me. The personal attention that I am giving to this introduction is in keeping with my philosophy of personal attention to all matters involving my clients.

If you’re facing criminal charges, you may be frightened and intimidated at the prospect of getting lost in an impersonal system with potentially devastating consequences for your freedom, career, reputation and finances. Make sure you know who you’re hiring.

I can provide assistance in a number of different areas.

Experience, expertise and an exceptional reputation

My experience, career and credentials speak for themselves. I am AV® Preeminent(TM Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell®, which is the highest possible ranking for ethical standards and legal ability. I have consistently been ranked by SuperLawyers.com as being in the top 5 percent of my field. I have been certified by the State Bar of California as a criminal law specialist since the certification program began more than 25 years ago. Even more importantly, I have earned the trust of countless clients — many of whom have offered testimonials which you can read on this website.

In more than 40 years of experience, I’ve handled a wide range of cases from first-offense DUIs to serious felonies. Most of my clients are just like you: ordinary people who suddenly find themselves in trouble for the first time who’ve done something foolish or impulsive that they might not think of as criminal. Many of my clients are young men and women from good families who find themselves stifled by a criminal justice system that is unfairly judgmental and quite unforgiving. And while I cannot ethically or legally promise you a specific result, I can promise that my career has provided me with a well-earned reputation for honesty and integrity – all to your benefit when I stand beside you in court. I can provide assistance in the following areas:

You are not an inmate. You are a defendant who is presumed innocent. My personal “old school” philosophy is simple: treat others as you’d want to be treated. Each client deserves the same 100 percent commitment from me regardless of whether the offense is a misdemeanor or a felony, DUI, murder, petty theft, drug charge or domestic violence. After all, what others may not consider a serious crime is serious to you.

Available and accessible around the clock

One complaint heard so often by folks who have retained counsel is that lawyers are hard to reach and never return emails or phone calls.This is not the case with me. One promise I can make is that I am responsive — and not just during the normal business hours. If you email me, call me or just want to talk, I am available to you.
