Los Angeles Misdemeanor Lawyer

Leveling the Playing Field in Criminal Cases

While misdemeanor charges carry less serious penalties than felonies, they should not be taken lightly. Heavy fines and time in local county jail can still be imposed, and a mark on your record can still damage your reputation and current and future employment opportunities. In addition, repeat offenses, such as multiple DUIs, can lead to increased fines and longer jail time.

For most non-serious misdemeanor offenses, probation sentences are often given by the presiding judge.

In such instances, certain conditions must be met, such as:

  • Community service,
  • Electronic monitoring,
  • Counseling or treatment programs, and/or
  • Paying restitution to the victim

If you are facing a misdemeanor charge, it may be best to speak with a skilled Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer.

At Jay Jaffe Attorney at Law, I will provide dedicated and results-driven defense for your case, call me at (310) 439-8260 or contact me online today.

Trusted by Countless Clients for Reliable Advocacy

As an established defense attorney, I have a history of providing staunch defense strategies against misdemeanor charges. From avoiding or minimizing jail time and reducing the number of conditions placed on probation to having the case dismissed altogether or won in court, my goal is to work tirelessly toward a favorable outcome.

With more than four decades of experience inside and outside of court, I defend the interests of my clients every step of the way. I am a Board Certified Specialist in Criminal Law, and I know how to navigate the criminal justice system, as well as how to effectively challenge any type of criminal charge.

Some of the misdemeanor cases I represent include:

  • Drug charges
  • Petty theft
  • Trespassing
  • Assault and battery
  • Probation violations
  • DUI
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Disorderly conduct

Upon being retained, I begin reviewing my clients’ cases immediately, investigating each piece of evidence, and working to create a strong defense. If legal help is hired early enough, there is even a chance of obtaining a favorable result, such as having charges dismissed or thrown out before they are ever formally filed.

I am available 24/7. To request a one-on-one consultation, call me, Attorney Jay Jaffe, at (310) 439-8260 or contact me online!
