Ann Gottesman Wants to Protect Your Constitutional Rights"As a former Deputy Public Defender, I am passionate about standing up for the rights of the criminally accused. Don't get railroaded by the system! The police and the District Attorney have only one goal--to see you convicted! I know the District Attorneys and Judges in the Pasadena and Los Angeles Courts and my professional rapport with these people allows me to achieve the kind of results for my clients that a non-local attorney usually cant achieve."When you hire the Law Office of Ann Gottesman, you are hiring ME, Ann Gottesman, a dedicated DUI lawyer and Los Angeles criminal defense attorney to personally handle your criminal case.I won't hand your case off to an inexperienced associate, like many large firms do. If I can't personally handle your case, then I won't take your case."My clients know that I meticulously prepare for each case and I can usually appear in court without the client having to be there. When I am retained, I immediately subpoena all discovery, including the police report, calibration logs (for a DUI), police dispatch logs, belt recordings, witness statements, lab results, etc Also, unlike many other Los Angeles and Pasadena criminal defense attorneys, I make myself available to my clients 7 days a week and Im always happy to receive my clients phone call or questions. My clients dont walk around with any unanswered questions because I am always ready to explain, investigate and resolve any issues a client may have with regard to his or her criminal case."Whether a client hires me to represent him or her in a petty theft shoplifting case, a misdemeanor DUI or drug case, a domestic violence case, or a serious felony case involving sentencing enhancements, I treat each case as a priority. I realize that no matter what criminal charge a client is facing, that case is the most important issue in my clients life right now, and that client is experiencing a great deal of fear and stress as a result of being at the center of a criminal prosecution. I treat my clients the way I would want to be treatedwith compassion and devotion to their case.
