Firm Overview

I have successfully represented many people's criminal defense cases for more than 20 years, and from this varied experience I am confident that I can advise and assist my clients with their criminal defense needs. I am committed to work hard on your case to help you receive the fair treatment you deserve.

Whether you have been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, having an attorney at the beginning, just days after your arrest, can be extremely important. The longer you postpone hiring counsel, the greater the problem can become.

Example cases

Attempt to reduce offense to a less serious offense through plea negotiations such as theft and family violence.

State files motion to revoke probation and I can often get the probation reinstated or punishment reduced.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

In criminal law, people's liberty and freedom are at stake. People charged with criminal offenses are particularly vulnerable to the system and need a capable advocate to ensure that their rights are protected.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Oftentimes people are given false and/or misleading information by well-intentioned others, and I try to explain to them in a language they understand what their options are so that they have realistic expectations.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

No.

Lloyd S. Gastwirth

I was an airline attorney before starting my own practice 25 years ago.

After practicing law for many years, I determined that assisting individuals was more satisfactory to me than working in a corporate environment.

I am prepared and able to work within the framework of my expertise and experience. I communicate well with my clients, judges, prosecutors and probation officers.

Personal interests:

I enjoy spending time with my family and cooking.
