Experienced Los Angeles Criminal Attorneys are here to help you – (213) 514-8732

At Shield Criminal Defense Law, Craig Sturm prides himself on providing a superior legal defense to our clients, 100% of the time.  Our criminal defense lawyers have spent years navigating the legal system and devising successful defense strategies, keeping up to date on current California laws, and providing aggressive and affordable legal representation of our clients in the courtroom.

We understand the emotional burden that facing a criminal charge can place on you and your loved ones. Being convicted can result in long lasting consequences including hefty fines, jail time, loss of job, being separated from your family, and having a criminal record. However, being charged with a crime does not mean you will be convicted, and a conviction does not necessarily mean you will go to jail or face life-altering changes. We fight to make the prosecution prove their case, get reduced sentencing, alternative sentencing, and get you back home to everyday life as quickly as possible.

Mr. Sturm focuses exclusively on criminal matters, which means you won’t be hiring an attorney that only does what you need some of the time. You’ll be hiring an expert in California criminal law, whose only specialty is knowing how to fight for you.

Why shouldn’t I just get a public defender? I can’t afford a private attorney.

While obtaining a public defender can be a good option, they are often over-burdened with cases and lack the ability to provide your case with the individualized attention that it deserves. Craig Sturm offers payment plans so you can afford the defense you need, worry free.

Don’t delay!

Many people delay hiring an attorney because they are embarrassed to discuss their criminal charges. At Shield Criminal Law, we understand that sometimes good people make mistakes. The great American poet Alexander Pope once said, “to err is to be human”. Translation? Making a mistake doesn’t make you’re bad, it makes you human. Our only concern is making sure that you get the best possible representation, with the best possible outcome.

We vow to always speak to you in a candid, judgement free manner about your case.
