Experience & Proven Successes
When you have been charged with a crime and are looking for legal representation for your case, you have a nearly endless list of Long Beach criminal defense attorneys from which to choose. Why should you hire a defense lawyer from the Law Offices of Falangetti & Weimortz? What sets our firm apart from the competition? We have won numerous recognitions and accolades, and our attorneys have nearly 35 years of combined experience. We make it a top priority to provide excellent one-on-one service and to provide you with the compassionate support and dedication representation you deserve. These are all excellent reasons to retain our services, but there is one thing more that truly distinguishes us from the rest: both of our founding attorneys have experience as former prosecutors.
35 Years Combined Experience
The fact that our criminal legal team has a background in prosecuting cases similar to yours gives us a significant advantage in preparing our clients' cases. Why is this? We have a unique insight into what the other side is thinking. We know how they go about gathering evidence to prove your guilt, we know what priorities they have in a typical case, and we have an intimate, first-hand knowledge of the strategies that will most likely be used against you.
Most importantly, we know where to look for mistakes on the part of the police officers, investigators and prosecutors - errors which can be isolated and exploited to our client's advantage. This is a key factor in how we are about to achieve such excellent results on a routine basis.
Each of our attorneys served as Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorneys for well in excess of a decade, and both of them prosecuted thousands of cases in their careers. Anthony J. Falangetti spent much of his time as part of the D.A.'s Hardcore Gang Unit, where he personally handled dozens of murder cases, as well as robbery, burglary, assault with a deadly weapon and narcotics cases.
Joseph Weimortz, Jr. prosecuted a total of 66 felony jury trials, and was assigned to the Victim Impact Program (V.I.P.). There, he focused his efforts on sex crimes, felony domestic violence and stalking cases, doing everything from interviewing victims to taking the case to a full jury trial. Our attorneys know the criminal justice system inside and out.
