What Should I look for in a Defense Lawyer?

Communication is the key to any successful relationship. Accordingly, we keep our clients informed of the status of the case during all phases of the proceeding, while always treating them with the dignity and respect they deserve. Our initial undertaking, after reviewing your case and giving you an opportunity to talk to us about your situation, is to develop a sound strategy to defend you against whatever charges you may be facing. We will explain that strategy to you in plain language you can understand, so that your decisions can be made with a full understanding of all aspects of your case. As the case progresses, you will be told of any new developments, as well as any changes in our strategy which are warranted by those developments.

We know the fear and anxiety that accompanies being charged with a criminal offense, and we are sensitive to the emotional pressure you and your loved ones are under. We strive to alleviate some of that pressure by providing you with the confidence that comes with having us as your legal advocate.

Matthew Spiegel – Results Matter

Image of handcuffed handsNo matter what the charges, you have rights. We will fight to defend them.

Matthew Spiegel, the founder of The SLG Criminal Law Group, has personally handled over a thousand criminal cases, and has gained a reputation as one of the most respected criminal defense lawyers in Southern California. The combination of years of experience, knowledge and zealous representation of his clients has lead to numerous dismissals, not guilty verdicts and reduced charges on behalf of his long list of clients. After all, what counts are results. Whether your case can be satisfactorily resolved prior to trial by way of a reduction in charges, a reduced sentence, a successful pre-trial motion to dismiss the case against you or to bar the introduction of evidence, or a full-blown jury trial, Mr. Spiegel will take whatever steps are legally necessary to bring your case to a successful conclusion.

DUI Charges are Common in LA County

The SLG Criminal Law Group specializes in the defense of criminal charges, and we have extensive experience representing clients charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI). DUI arrests are common, but every case is unique. Since the penalties for a conviction can be severe, these cases require the attention of an experienced defense attorney. That experience pays off, as you can see from some examples of our recent successes in DUI cases: (1) A client was charge with DUI after being found passed out in the driver’s seat of a car with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .22, which is significantly higher that the threshold BAC for drunk driving. At trial, the client was found not guilty; (2) Another client, who was on active military duty, was charged with DUI with a BAC of .18. After a jury trial, the client was likewise found not guilty.
