    Century City Criminal Defense Attorney

    Do You Work or Live in Century City and Have Been Charged with a Crime? What Should You Do Now?

    If you or a loved one are being investigated for a crime, or you’ve already been charged, hire a Century City criminal defense attorney. Do this immediately. Do this, even if you already have other legal representation, if you have the best transactional attorney or family lawyer. You need a criminal defense attorney. And you need one, regardless of the severity of the charge.

    Criminal defense is a highly specialized field, and the stakes are simply too high to go with anyone less than the absolute best.

    Even an arrest without a conviction can have life-changing repercussions.

    For example, if you are arrested while holding a license to practice your profession, California law gives licensing boards the power to suspend your professional license or issue other sanctions. And convictions—including those arising out of a plea bargain or a plea of “nolo contendere” (no contest)—can result in permanent loss of a license if the conviction has any bearing on your ability to work in your field successfully.

    White-Collar Crime

    White-collar crimes refer to acts that lead to unlawful financial gain. Prosecuted under either state or federal law, white-collar crimes include tax fraud, securities fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, cybercrime, and identity theft.

    It is essential to have a criminal defense lawyer at your side for a white-collar crime as soon as possible. Because reputation is everything for the white-collar defendant, prosecutors often look to end the case with a quietly negotiated plea bargain before they’ve filed charges in the first place.

    But compared to other crimes, white-collar cases may require in-depth examination and forensic accounting of financial records, statements, corporate filings, correspondence, and much more. Therefore, the sooner you obtain counsel, the more time your lawyers have to learn the relevant facts, assess your potential liability, and develop a sound defense strategy.

    The Law Office of David Chesley’s experienced defense counsel and in-house investigators are ready to help you at every step of your white-collar defense, from discovery to a prosecution’s proffer and plea negotiations to trial.

    Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Related Offenses

    As a member of the California DUI Lawyers Association and the National College for DUI Defense, Mr. Chesley is a certified expert in DUI defense, and it shows. Ninety-five percent (95%) of his DUI clients receive no jail time.

    DUI defense expertise is essential in California. The state aggressively pursues those who are “driving under the influence” (DUI), and Century City is no exception in that pursuit. In addition to its regular DUI enforcement, the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Bureau frequently has DUI checkpoints and roving DUI saturation patrols in the Century City area.

    California DUI convictions carry severe penalties, ranging from fines and license suspension to community service, probation, and prison. DUI convictions also may require participation in alcohol programs, installation of ignition lock devices, and restitution.

    The Automobile Club of California estimates that, between fines, penalties, increases in insurance premiums, and other costs, a first-offense DUI misdemeanor conviction will cost approximately $15,688 for an adult 21 and over, while a first DUI conviction for a minor (under the age of 21) will be $22,500.

    Types of Criminal Cases Mr. Chesley Defends:

    • White-Collar Crimes
    • Driving Under the Influence and other motor vehicle-related offenses
    • Murder, Assault, and Rape
    • Narcotics Possession and Distribution
    • Domestic Violence and Related Restraining Orders
    • Property crimes including burglary (residential and commercial), robbery, car theft, theft from a vehicle, shoplifting, and vandalism
