Van Nuys Criminal Defense Lawyer

A criminal charge can be a life-changing event. A misdemeanor conviction can easily cost thousands and force you and those close to you to restructure your life. A felony charge can mean the end of freedom and liberties.

If you or someone close to you has been charged or is being investigated for a criminal charge, it is absolutely crucial to inform yourself of your rights and begin protecting them by partnering with a skilled lawyer.

With more than three decades of experience, I am ready to help you do that.

Encino DUI Defense Attorney

I am Mark Daniel Melnick, Attorney at Law. In my career, I have handled literally thousands of criminal cases, encountering nearly every type of misdemeanor and felony charge in state and federal court. I am in court every day and have been for my decades-long career.

When you hire me, you are far from alone. You know that you will have an experienced, effective criminal defense lawyer with you every step of the way, listening to your concerns, answering your questions and fighting for your rights.

I believe myself to be the most accessible lawyer in town. I am never bothered when clients call me asking about case developments. I know that being arrested and charged with a crime is understandably a frightening experience for many: it is not a common experience for most of us, and facing the unknown is always a stressful situation. As such, I rise to the occasion.

I practice criminal defense because I feel like I am able to truly provide a service that helps people on a personal level. I believe I am able to protect "the little guy" from the often oppressive government prosecutors. Since my first criminal case, I have handled thousands of criminal cases of virtually every type, large and small, and to this day I strive to fight for the individual.

If you have been charged or are being investigated for a charge in California, including DUI, an ideal resolution comes from early and decisive action. I encourage you to get in touch as soon as possible.

I accept major credit cards.
