Criminal Justice

Success & Integrity

Being accused of a crime can be frightening and confusing.  Even being involved in a police investigation can quickly create problems for you if you are not represented by an attorney. Just giving voluntary answers to a few seemingly simple questions can, before you know it, put you in the position of being suspected of a serious crime.  Call an attorney before your first interview with the police.

You need answers.  You need a professional advocate.  Los Angeles criminal defense attorney Jim Perkins will give you straight talk about your situation, good and bad.  From the start, he will give work with you to set goals for the case and tell you how those goals can be achieved.

Attorney Perkins will be involved in your case and available to you every step of the way.  He will be responsible to you for all aspects of your case.  He will be available to answer your questions about the progress of your case at all times.
