Types of Crimes We Handle

Driving Under Influence

If you are arrested for a DUI (driving under influence) or a DUID (driving under influence of drugs), you could encounter multiple penalties including: having your driver’s license suspended, having to pay hefty penalties, having a catastrophic impact on your career, and also be punished with jail time if found guilty. After an arrest, you should secure yourself by collaborating with a skilled DUI attorney that specializes in DUI and Drug related cases.

Drug Offenses

Cases involving drugs can vary due to the type of drug, amount of drugs, or the intended use of the drug that was found on your person, or property. No drug case is equal and penalties can vary greatly. Without the proper legal representation, you could be facing a difficult and uphill battle proving your innocence and protecting your freedom. It’s important to get in touch with an expert drug attorney as soon as possible!

Domestic Violence

A charge of domestic violence is an extremely significant case that could leave you incarcerated with years in prison, restraining orders, and other legal complications. If you have been jailed or placed under arrest for domestic violence, you should call a seasoned Domestic Violence Attorney promptly and talk about the specifics of your case.

Sex Crimes

Depending upon the severity of the criminal sexual act that you allegedly committed, a sex crime can be billed as a felony or a misdemeanor, or what is known as a “wobbler”. In order to safeguard yourself, call a criminal defense attorney to tackle any sex crimes or accusations. The sooner, the better chances you have at beating the case.

Theft Crimes

Were you detained and arrested for burglary? It is completely crucial that you take immediate action to guarantee that you protect your rights and you can secure legal counsel. Regardless of the alleged issues at hand, you should speak to our Criminal Defense Team immediately.

Violent Crimes

Violent crimes are just one of the most strongly prosecuted criminal offenses in California. If you were accused of a violent crime, you could be encountering felony charges and stiff penalties, including prison. Your criminal record and future are at stake. You should deal with an attorney right away to begin preparing your defense. Each case is unique, schedule a confidential meeting with us now.

White Collar Crime

Although white collar crimes are often considered an offense that is less serious than a violent crimes, they still can result in substantial penalties and consequences because they are not regarded as ‘victimless’ in most cases. If you were arrested for a white collar crime, contact us and retain our services with trusted representation.

Federal Crimes

Federal criminal activities can result in quite severe charges that can be prosecuted at the federal or state level. After an arrest, it’s imperative that you work with a knowledgeable federal crimes attorney that has experience handling federal cases.

Juvenile Crimes

Has your child or teen been arrested and charged with a criminal action? If yes, it is essential that you retain the services of a knowledgeable crime lawyer. At Law Offices of Seppi Esfandi, we can assist in helping protect the future of your child and their civil liberties. Do not think twice to call our firm as quickly as possible!

Probation Violations

Probation is a benefit, not a right. A violation of probation or the terms of your probation can lead to severe repercussions. If you have actually been detained and charged with violating probation, or if you are under examination for a violation, call us.

Gerardo C.

Seppi was amazing, one of the nicest persons I've met. He was very professional and handled my case like so. He assured me from the beginning what he was going to be able to do for me and always was truthful. He always answered my phone calls and when he didn't he would respond to my voicemails promptly as well communicate via text. The fees were very reasonable. I never had to go to court and he fixed everything for me. I will definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

Anthony M.

I was facing 2 felony counts which included 2 strikes on my record. Each count was a sentence of 2-4 years in state prison. I was looking at 2 counts which could have sent me to jail for a maximum of 8 years. The DA was trying to offer me a lesser misdemeanor charge and Mr. Esfandi advised me to deny their offer and he assured me of a better outcome. MY CASE WAS DISMISSED! I told my girlfriend this is a blessing from God, and she said no it wasn't, you had a great lawyer! Thank you Seppi for doing an outstanding job. You saved my life!

Evan N.

This was the first time that I had to choose an attorney for anything. I am very thankful that I end up choosing Seppi Esfandi. The outcome of my brothers case was perfect and beyond fair with no jail time! I believe that without Seppi, my brother would had definitely been charged with a felony and served jail time. My family is extremely pleased with the professionalism that the Law Office of Seppi Esfandi had provided during the case. The paralegal, Jorge, was very friendly, professional, and I could immediately tell that they cared about our family situation. THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN!

Courtney M.

I've never been in a situation where I needed a lawyer before. Seppi has been highly communicative, proactive and knowledgeable as well as affordable. He is very personable and listens to you, as well as makes you feel comfortable with the process. I felt such relief after choosing him. The best part? He got my case dismissed! I highly recommend him.

Amber B.

Meeting with Seppi Esfandi was the first step in the right direction after a big setback. He is professional, honest, generous, and has passion for what he does. He quickly and effectively answered every single question I had regarding my case and went above and beyond to help me. Esfandi did not stop fighting for me until he saw results in my case - I am so appreciative and grateful for all of his dedication and passion.

Carrie P.

Seppi was the first attorney I have ever hired and will be the only one I ever hire! My kids father was looking at 4 years prison and he got him down to 180 days and back to probation. So instead of prison time he is staying in county to only serve around 90 days. There were more then one cases and even though Seppi could've have charged more to help extra he made sure the other case was done right. He was very attentive and caring and didn't have very bad pricing considering. Thank you so much Seppi!

Miguel T.

I was facing two felony charges Seppi was able to bring it down to a 1 misdemeanor, the other charge was dropped, i did not have to do any jail time and I did not have register. I'm very pleased with Seppi's help and also Jorge who was there from the day I called. I would highly recommend Seppi if you are in need of any legal help.

Cindy F.

Seppi and Shaun were by far the nicest people I have dealt with. I had a complicated situation with terrible prosecutors thinking just because I had a DUI, it automatically makes me a loser, a drunk, a terrible person - we all make mistakes. Seppi was able to get my case dismissed at one courthouse, and at the second was able to have me get the minimum sentence. I was scared from the get-go, but he was very supportive, especially after my mom passed. I would recommend Seppi and the Firm to my family/friends (heaven forbid they ever end up in my situation).

Britney D.

Seppi was awesome. He will answer his phone at 10pm on a Saturday or any other time you need him. The decision to hire him was obvious. I've never been in legal trouble before and he made me feel very comfortable and assured throughout the entire situation. I actually relocated to northern California before the case ended and he was able to handle everything for me from a distance. I did not have to fly back to LA once. As far as LA lawyers go I found him priced at the going rate and money very well spent. I cannot not speak for more serious offenders, but for my situation, it was perfect.

Johanna D.

Seppi was great. He helped me get through one of the most stressful and frightening moments in my life. He answered nearly every question I had & if he was unable to answer at the moment, he made sure to follow-up with me as soon as he had the answer and/or information I needed. Since this was my first time ever in a legal situation, I was scared and confused. Seppi definitely helped me get through it. With his willingness to listen to me and with his expertise, I felt comforted & at ease knowing I had his assistance.

Amanda P.

Seppi is the best lawyer!! I was charged with a felony and he told me that it was a felony strike but that he would work hard for me. I knew to get him on my case because of the way he presented himself, i could tell he was a good lawyer. my case got dismissed after he went to court with me a few times. I am so thankful to Seppi for helping me.
