Aggressive Representation

Any attorney can claim that he is aggressive, but being aggressive and tactful is what sets the best apart.

The Best Defense is a Good Offense.

While some lawyers like to sit back till your court day arrives, Long Beach Criminal Defense Attorney Anthony A. Arzili believes going on the offensive can prevent charges from being filed in the first place.

From the date you are arrested up until the date of your first court date, the wheels of the justice system start to turn.   The arresting agency completes their investigation and then meets with the local prosecutors to discuss a filing of criminal charges.   It is at this vital juncture that key decisions are being made as to what charges to file or whether to file charges at all.

Long Beach Criminal Defense Lawyer Anthony A. Arzili believes that this “pre-filing” period is an opportunity to let the prosecutors know that there is more to this story than what the officer wrote in his arrest report.   If we can provide facts or witnesses that can make the filing prosecutor rethink bringing charges, we can prevent a long drawn out battle in court and end this nightmare right away.

Long Beach Courts. That’s our turf.

You will not find another attorney that limits his turf to what he knows best. Most Attorneys will chase a case to any county to make a living. Anthony A. Arzili believes that knowing your “home turf” can make all the difference. 18 years of every day interaction with the Judges and Prosecutors in Long Beach has provided Anthony with the home field advantage.
