Criminal Cases We Handle

Being arrested or charged with a crime like domestic violence or drunk driving can be frightening, especially when you consider the potential consequences you could face if you are convicted. Even first offenses can carry harsh penalties like jail time, heavy fines, and probation, and these penalties can add up quickly and follow you for years to come. With the help of the seasoned defense attorneys at Los Angeles Criminal Attorneys, you may be able to get your criminal charges reduced or dismissed altogether.


A DUI charge means you were found to be driving with alcohol or other substances in your system. Such a charge carries both criminal consequences and administrative consequences that involve the DMV, and if you have been charged or arrested for a DUI in Los Angeles, you could incur harsh penalties under California law. Even a first misdemeanor DUI offense carries significant fines and a term of up to six months in jail, plus a license suspension and mandatory DUI classes, even if no one gets hurt. And the consequences of a conviction are increasingly severe for second and subsequent offenses or felony DUIs. With a reputable DUI defense attorney like Matthew Cohen on your side, you can significantly improve your chances of beating your DUI charge.

Domestic Violence

Each U.S. state has its own domestic violence laws and penalties for a conviction. In California, domestic violence is a criminal offense occurring when one person abuses or threatens abuse against a spouse, intimate partner, co-parent, or someone closely related to them by blood or marriage. This type of abuse is punished harshly in California, and even unfounded allegations of domestic violence can have lasting effects on your personal and professional life. Many people don’t realize that the prosecutor’s office can pursue criminal charges for a domestic violence incident even if the alleged victim changes his or her mind or does not wish to “press charges.” If you have been accused of domestic violence, it may seem like the end of the world, but all is not lost. You deserve competent legal representation and Matthew Cohen can help you fight your felony or misdemeanor domestic violence charges.
