Summary

Attorney Brian Michaels is a 23 year veteran of the California Criminal Courts. Attorney Michaels spent the first 8 years of his career as a big city Prosecutor where he cut his teeth in the trial courts of Los Angeles where he earned accolades as a Top Prosecutor. Attorney Michaels worked for the Los Angeles Police Department during the height of the infamous Rampart Scandal as a Civil Defense Attorney. Michaels is unique among Criminal Defense Attorneys in Southern California as very few have any Prosecutorial experience and most set out on their own straight out of Law School. Michaels has intensive training as a Trial Lawyer. For many years attorney Michaels trained and supervised young lawyers in the art of a jury trial. For the last 12 years Michaels has worked exclusively as a Criminal Defense Attorney and handles cases in 5 counties. There is almost no case too big or too small. We have Spanish speaking staff and are happy to consider payment plans for qualified clients. Our office accepts Checks, Paypal, Square, Venmo, Zelle and cash. Mr. Michaels is a complete hands on attorney. You rarely will be dealing with any other junior attorney and he prides himself on his communication. Michaels belongs to many professional organizations and has been featured on numerous news organizations. We offer an initial free 45 minute consult.
