Criminal Defense Specialist

 CRIMINAL DEFENSE

Criminal Defense lawyer certified as a specialist in criminal law

Criminal Defense Specialist

 

 To legally advertise as a criminal defense specialist, the attorney must pass a written test and undergo extensive peer review by other criminal defense attorneys, judges and prosecutors.  If you had a serious medical condition wouldn’t you seek the services of a specialist?  The same is true in criminal defense.  A criminal defense attorney who is a general practitioner will rarely have the expertise to provide you with the best defense against criminal charges.

 

WHY CHOOSE A CRIMINAL DEFENSE SPECIALIST ?

If you have a heart problem would you go to a foot doctor?  Of course not.  But many attorneys advertise as “CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER” and some (without State Bar approval), call themselves “CRIMINAL DEFENSE SPECIALISTS”.  But are they ?   The specialist certification requires academic achievement, trial skills and certification from other attorneys.  Unlike flashy advertising claims, the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization certification is an objective, earned achievement.  Only a few hundred attorneys in the entire State of California are certified criminal defense specialists.

Both Daniel Horowitz and  Carmela Caramagno are criminal defense specialists certified by the State of California Board of Legal Specialization.   Tom Kensok is a former Assistant District Attorney who was lead counsel in over 100 serious felony trials.  Oksana Tsykova is a National Trial Lawyer “Top 40 Under 40” award recipient.

TRIAL EXPERIENCE

Criminal law is Trial law.   You might make a deal but an attorney who takes a “dump truck” approach to criminal cases is a disaster for the client.  Daniel Horowitz has the credibility of 200 + jury trials.  If you make a deal it is negotiated from a position of strength.  Daniel Horowitz has national recognition as a legal commentator on network shows such as Nancy Grace but he is relaxed and informal with his clients.
