Glendale Criminal Defense Attorney

The Glendale Courthouse is located at 600 East Broadway, Glendale, California, 91206

At Goldstein Law Group, our criminal defense lawyers have been successful in defending clients against misdemeanor and felony charges at the Glendale Superior Court. Once you have been arrested, the California Penal Code is difficult to understand and the criminal process can be overwhelming. It is critically important to immediately consult a skilled defense attorney who is familiar with the judges and prosecutor’s in the Glendale Courthouse. This court is unique because all felony charges are transferred to the nearby Burbank Courthouse for court proceedings. However, misdemeanor charges remain in one of the local courtrooms. In many cases, our attorneys have been able to secure a client’s release on their Own Recognizance (a.k.a. “OR”), where the client is released with a written promise to appear in court at a later date. In criminal cases where the judge decides to set a bail amount, our skilled legal team have been able to secure a substantial reduction in the bail amount, which has been the difference between detention or freedom – pending the outcome of the often long criminal proceedings.

Glendale Criminal Lawyers for Any Type of Offense

We offer superior criminal defense representation against all types of criminal charges including: drug possession, drug possession with intent to sell, drug manufacturing, drug transportation, domestic violence, marijuana cases, assault & battery, aggravated assault, robbery, kidnapping, murder, manslaughter, rape, burglary, forgery, embezzlement, receiving stolen property, sex crimes, child pornography, prostitution, solicitation, DUI defense, criminal appeals, expungements and all other crimes. At Goldstein Law Group, the father and son team of James A. Goldstein and Michael A. Goldstein have successfully defended thousands of cases and have the experience and reputation necessary to defend you at the Glendale Courthouse. Our main goal is to try and prevent criminal charges from being filed by contacting the prosecutors office prior to your court date. In many cases involving misdemeanors charges, our client’s have never had to appear in court.

A History of Success and Integrity

In one case, attorney Michael A. Goldstein obtained a dismissal of charges against his client in a complex Internet fraud case. Michael’s client was involved in a Nigerian Internet scam after exchanging several emails over a period of time. His client was arrested after opening several bank accounts and attempted to cash fraudulent U.S. Postal money orders. The bank suffered a financial loss in excess of $103,000. The District Attorney would not offer any plea bargain unless his client agreed to pay restitution up front and agree to plead guilty to a felony. A conviction would have resulted in the loss of his client’s professional license, which would have been devastating to his future. Understanding this, Michael pursued an aggressive criminal defense which resulted in the dismissal of all charges after being sent out for trial. The District Attorney decided to refiled the original charges. After two long years of litigation, the judge granted his defense motion and dismissed the case. His client retained his professional license. We have a long history of successful cases like this one. Attorney Michael A. Goldstein receives letters from satisfied clients. In a recent one, Michael’s client stated that he not only represents you as your criminal defense attorney, he also takes an interest in you personally. This client also stated that “he would not have the confidence and bright outlook on his future had Michael not entered and changed his life.”
