LOOK NO FURTHER. . . . “
My name is Geoff Yaryan. . . I’m a criminal defense lawyer. An accusation of committing a crime is a threatening situation. It may lead to an uninvited confrontation with police, followed by an embarrassing arrest, an uncomfortable jail cell, and eventually a stressful court date. For those with no previous contact with this process, it can be very disturbing. For those who unfortunately have been through it before, you realize how necessary it is to get the best help available. A favorable outcome depends upon acting quickly, and carefully. You need expert and knowledgeable representation. I can provide you with each of these. Call 760 779-9666. . . For free consultation.
By far, the most important fact to know about any attorney is their level of experience. You must multiply any other quality they may have by that factor to achieve a true understanding of their value.
My experience in criminal law encompasses over thirty years devoted almost exclusively to the practice of criminal law.
I have successfully represented clients accused of crimes ranging from serious felonies, including domestic violence, sexual offenses, assault and murder to drug charges, which included possession for sale, sales, transportation, illegal cultivation of marijuana, and non-compliance with medical marijuana laws.
I also have represented people accused of misdemeanors, most often they are clients arrested for driving under the influence, or the popular term DUI’s. Those clients total well over 2,000. However, there are many other serious misdemeanors, and I have successfully handled most of those at one point.
Besides that, many of my clients have had probation violations, other's juvenile cases, and still other's matters originating in federal court. I also represent people with immigration problems arising out of crimes they may have committed, or under other circumstances. There is virtually nothing in the realm of criminally related prosecutions I haven’t seen in my many years of experience.
To gain the experience I have participated in dozens of jury trials, have authored and filed hundreds of pretrial motions, filed writs and appeals in the court of appeal, and appeared in federal court in high-profile cases.
As interesting as this may sound to some much of the practice of criminal-defense law is behind the scenes negotiating with prosecutors and judges. Most cases are settled before trial through plea and sentence bargaining. These discussions are a vital part of practicing criminal law, and I do them well. Experience is invaluable in this very important area of criminal law.
My career began as a Los Angeles County deputy public defender. I had recently graduated from law school at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, where I received a quality education at one of the leading law schools in the country. However, nothing in law school prepared me, or anyone else, for the practice of criminal law. It is an expertise acquired by doing and not one learned in law school.
As a public defender, I learned first-hand in the busiest and most diverse court system in California. Eventually, I left the Public Defender’s office and entered private practice. I continued gaining experience by handling cases in state courts throughout California and federal courts in California, Hawaii, and Arizona, Washington DC and New York.
Gaining this quality experience was central in my development as a criminal defense attorney. It has enabled me to have a greater understanding of the criminal-justice system. Importantly a better understanding of those who work within it, including judges and prosecutors. Taking advantage of those facts will provide you with the best opportunity for success.
