Attorney Jay Jaffe Goes to Bat for His Clients With Respect, Experience & a Record of Excellent Results

Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney

Responsive & Trusted Attorney

I am Attorney Jay Jaffe, and providing focused legal representation is my top priority. Whether you've been accused of a felony or a misdemeanor, I will stand by your side throughout your case, giving you sound legal guidance and advice. I played baseball at USC and I employ that team mindset when taking on a case. I will not treat you like a number but as someone with whom I share a goal, and I will work hard to obtain a favorable outcome on your behalf.

When you're facing criminal charges, having an attorney on your side who delivers personalized attention is of the utmost importance. A conviction can result in jail or prison time and/or fines. However, the penalties don’t stop there: You’ll have a criminal record that can make it difficult to find a place to live or work, and some offenses come with a requirement to register as a sex offender, which can ruin your reputation for years to come. That is why it’s crucial to retain the services of a legal advocate ready to fight aggressively on your behalf. Contact me today.
