Criminal Defense Attorneys in Los Angeles, San Fernando Valley, California

Venice High SchoolMay 2015 News Update: No Charges Filed Against our Client in Venice High School Sexual Assault Case. Michael Goldstein’s client was arrested with several other students based on allegations of sexual assaults. After a thorough investigation by both the defense and prosecution, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office concluded there was “insufficient evidence” to file charges against any of the 15 students who had been arrested. This decision by the DA comes just two months after LAPD announced their “high profile” investigation. During the investigation, our office cooperated with law enforcement and our own investigation revealed a video tape that provided clear evidence that any contact involving our client was consensual. As the Los Angeles Times reported, LAPD has now closed the investigation. Read Article in LA Times.

In The News

Avvo - Five Star Client Review - September 2015 - Truly the Best! - Michael is by far the best attorney I have ever met. I had two previous attorneys that were not only ineffective but failed to follow through with exhausting all options that they had originally promised me in order to clear my name for charges that I was not guilty of. After spending thousands of dollars with no positive outcome and endless appearances in court, I was left with an utter loss of hope and faith not only in the legal system but in attorneys in general. Michael completely turned my experience around. He is not only an outstanding and effective attorney that was able to propose the best option to get my case dismissed but he is an amazingly caring and respectable human being. He is in the business of genuinely helping those in need to the best of his professional and personal ability. I can't thank him enough for his help and professional compassion. I highly recommend him!
