Charged with Child Molestation in the San Fernando Valley?

There are few criminal charges that can destroy one’s reputation in the community faster than being accused of child molestation.  That is only the beginning of the damage that can result from a charge and conviction of any child molestation offense.

If you have been arrested for any child molestation offense, it is critical that you contact a child molestation defense lawyer without delay.  The immediate actions taken by the defense in child molestation cases can impact the entire criminal prosecution.  In some cases, immediate action can even stop a case from ever being filed.

Child Molestation Criminal Defense Lawyer in Van Nuys and the San Fernando Valley

It is not uncommon for child molestation charges to be completely false and the individual accused is innocent. Even when someone is not entirely innocent, however, a vigorous defense must be mounted and it is crucial that you have an extremely skilled and seasoned defense lawyer to immediately begin your defense.

At the Law Offices of Schwartz & Weinrieb, our legal team is prepared to act quickly on behalf of any client charged with this serious offense.  Our attorneys are creative and aggressive and will exploit any possible flaw in the prosecution.  You can be assured that your case will be our priority.

Anyone convicted of a felony child molestation charge is required to become a “registered sex offender”.  This means that any person in your neighborhood can see your name, address and photograph and the crime that you committed.  Moving to another state will not protect you, as these rules exist nationwide.  It is absolutely critical that you have powerful legal representation fighting for you and that the representation begins immediately if you have been accused of or charged with child molestation in Los Angeles.

Whether you are looking for a Burbank Criminal Lawyer, Glendale Criminal Attorney, San Fernando Criminal Lawyer, Van Nuys Criminal Attorney or an attorney in other parts of Los Angeles, Schwartz & Weinrieb is ready to aggressively defend against your criminal charges.
