Expertise in Van Nuys Criminal Law

In searching for a qualified Van Nuys criminal defense attorney you may have come across attorneys who practice in a variety of different areas. Many local attorneys run what’s known as “shotgun” practices, dabbling in a bit of everything, while specializing in nothing. These lawyers sometimes pride themselves on providing general legal services, however, the reality is that these lawyers possess a very limited skill-set when it comes to the specialization of criminal trial work.

Criminal defense is all that we do; it’s all that we know. With more than 60 jury trials to his credit Justin E. Sterling specializes in all state and federal offenses, including misdemeanors and all serious and violent felonies.

Personalized Van Nuys Criminal Defense

The Law Offices of Justin E. Sterling provides its clients with an experience that is the best of both worlds. It is what sets us apart from other law offices. We are not a solo practitioner law office nor are we a group of associate lawyers taking on too many cases than we can handle.

A solo practitioner is responsible for the day-to-day operations of his or her business in addition to the legal aspects of each and every one of their client’s cases. While many solo practitioners are great advocates, it is simply not feasible for a solo practitioner to offer high quality legal representation to every client while running a business.

On the other hand, large criminal law offices with multiple associate lawyers can offer an experience that is far worse. It is easy to get lost in the shuffle at an office that employs dozens of attorneys and has hundreds of clients. Even worse, these offices often delegate cases to inexperienced lawyers once the initial meeting and retainer fee has been met.

We do not operate in this fashion. Van Nuys DUI and defense lawyer, Justin Sterling, personally handles every case that comes through his door. Aside from our immediate team, we work in alliance with selected professionals in order provide our clients with high-quality legal representation.
