Los Angeles County Lawyer Provides Tough Criminal Defense

Van Nuys firm represents clients in felony, misdemeanor and traffic cases

No matter what criminal charge you face, you need tough and experienced legal help immediately. At the Law Offices of Jovi G. Usude in Van Nuys, I am a dedicated advocate for Los Angeles County clients. My firm takes on police and prosecutors to give you the best chance at a dismissal, acquittal or favorable plea agreement. Whether you have been accused of a felony, misdemeanor or traffic violation, obtaining qualified counsel is crucial to producing the strongest possible defense. I have more than 15 years of legal experience and know how to defeat unfounded charges to protect your rights and future.

California attorney aggressively protects the rights of the accused

I provide aggressive representation for Southern Californians accused of serious offenses such as:

  • Felonies — Cases where violent crimes such as murder, vehicular homicide or battery causing serious injury are alleged demand dedicated defense counsel. I develop a comprehensive case to challenge the evidence against my clients.
  • Misdemeanors — Assault, petty theft and other misdemeanor convictions can lead to jail time and a criminal record. In these matters, I create a strategy to achieve a successful outcome.
  • White collar crimes — My firm has the knowledge and resources to litigate white collar crime cases effectively. If you have been accused of misconduct, such as bribery or tax fraud, I will outline the legal elements at issue and guide you on how to fight the allegations.

As soon as you are arrested, your fundamental legal rights are in jeopardy. My firm offers a free initial consultation so you can get immediate help.

Dedicated counselor assists with DUI and traffic matters

If you are unable to drive in Southern California, it threatens your ability to work and take care of your family’s needs. Alleged traffic offenses and DUI charges can trigger a license suspension along with other penalties, such as fines, jail time and increased insurance rates. My firm vigorously opposes tickets for speeding, reckless driving and other offenses so that you can get a fair result and move ahead with your life.

Knowledgeable advocate advises defendants facing drug crime allegations

Though possession of a small amount of marijuana has been legalized in California, tough penalties still exist for other substances and amounts that indicate unlawful sale or trafficking. The difference between a possession count and a much more serious charge can be based on a police officer’s mistake or improperly gathered evidence. My firm combats unwarranted allegations and presses for alternatives to imprisonment, such as substance abuse treatment, where appropriate.

Strong defender handles a complete range of theft-related matters

My firm delivers comprehensive defense for a full range of theft-related crimes in Southern California. Whether you’ve been accused of shoplifting, grand theft or robbery, I find any available defenses and employ them to increase your chance at a favorable outcome.  This includes diligent representation in specific intent crimes and complex prosecutions such as burglary and embezzlement.

Reliable litigator offers support against sexual assault prosecutions

Litigating cases involving alleged sexual assault presents special challenges. As an experienced lawyer, I understand how to press for the truth when issues such as consent are highly disputed. My firm is a strong advocate for clients who face severe criminal penalties and public humiliation from unfounded charges of rape, sexual battery and other offenses.
