Criminal Defense

The Law Offices of Veronica T. Barton is a boutique law firm that practices criminal defense exclusively. We have offices throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Our award-winning attorneys fight hard to get every client the best possible result.

If you were a criminal defense attorney and your loved one was arrested, what would you do to help them? The answer, of course, is absolutely everything.

You would consider each and every defense in attacking the case. You would negotiate hard with the DA to get the best possible offer on the table. You would argue the case in front of a jury at trial if you had to.

Absolutely everything. That is what we do.

When you have been arrested and have a criminal case pending, there is a whole range of possible outcomes. Maybe you go to prison. Maybe you walk free. The single most important factor in the outcome of your case is the attorney that you hire to fight for you.

It is simple. If you want a good result, you need an attorney who will put the time and attention to detail in so that, at the end of each and every case, you know that you got the absolute best possible outcome.

Our attorneys take a two-pronged approach to ensure that every one of our clients has the absolute best possible outcome--the outcome that we would want for our own loved ones:

First, we attack the evidence, filing motions to weaken their case and meticulously going over every detail to build a winning defense and tear apart the case.

Second, we get to know our clients--their backgrounds and personal circumstances--and we use that information to persuade the prosecutor and the judge to give them a second chance.

Some attorneys, eager to clear their desks and close their files, are focused on pushing their clients into taking the first lousy deal that the prosecution throws at them. Unfortunately, many criminal defendants, scared and unsure of who to trust, end up taking those lousy deals, when an attorney who put in more effort and time could have easily earned them a much better outcome.

Our strategy takes time, but that time pays off with clients walking away at the end of their cases with their freedom protected and futures bright.

If you or someone you love has been arrested, stop worrying and let us help you. Call the Law Offices of Veronica T. Barton at (213) 377-6102 to speak to Veronica about your case right now.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

At the Law Offices of Veronica T. Barton, we do something that few attorneys are willing to do: we take the time to really get to know our clients. The reason? It's not just good customer service. Sometimes, the outcome of your case depends on your attorney knowing you as a human.

Using what we learn about our clients--the good things about them, hardships they have faced, their hopes and dreams--our attorneys are ready at a moments notice to argue for the judge to reduce your bail, to negotiate with the DA, and, if the case goes to trial, to show you in a positive light.

By taking the time to get to know you as a human, we can humanize you in front of the people who really matter to your case: the judge, the prosecutor, and sometimes, the jury.

The Law Offices of Veronica T. Barton

Veronica T. Barton founded the Law Offices of Veronica T. Barton in order to provide a highly personalized, detailed-oriented defense for every single one of her clients. Rather than handing cases off between multiple attorneys, as many firms routinely do, Veronica has found that taking the time to personally understand every single detail of her client’s case gets outcomes that may have not been possible otherwise.

Veronica received her bachelor’s degree from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She then went on to earn her law degree cum laude from Loyola University Chicago. Veronica is admitted to practice law in the State of California, the U.S Federal District Court for the Central District of California, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Veronica has represented clients charged with all levels of criminal defenses, from simple traffic offenses to serious and violent felonies.

One of Veronica’s most memorable victories was a recent jury trial in which her client was charged with felony domestic violence. His ex-girlfriend had accused him of strangling her. Although her client was offered probation at the last minute, he didn’t take the deal. He couldn’t; he would’ve lost his job and ruined his future prospects. But if they lost at trial, he faced up to four years in prison.

At trial, the prosecution presented photos of black bruises in the shape of fingers on the ex’s neck. The prosecution presented multiple witnesses, including an expert witness who testified that the dark bruises on the ex’s neck were caused by strangulation. They presented the tearful testimony of his ex-girlfriend.

But Veronica argued that her client had acted in self-defense: that the ex had attacked her client first. She ruthlessly cross-examined his ex. She argued each and every inconsistency to the jury and tore apart the ex’s credibility. In the late morning, just after closing arguments, the jury began deliberations. By the end of lunchtime, they had a verdict: not guilty.

Not only does Veronica fight hard for her clients, but her tireless attention to detail ensures that every single one of her clients receives the best possible outcome.
