Jeff Voll is a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who only practices criminal defense law. He has never been employed as a prosecutor and he has certainly never been a cop. The Criminal Defense Law Firm of Jeff Voll has defended hundreds of clients (peace officers included) accused of violating the criminal laws of California. He offers experienced and aggressive criminal defense representation in all areas of criminal defense law throughout the Los Angeles County Courts. Sometimes the only way to get the best resolution of ones criminal charges is to set the case for jury trial. Announcing "ready for trial" puts the prosecution on notice that they also must be ready for trial within 10 calendar days and it alerts the Judge and prosecutor that the accused is not taking any "deals" to settle the case. short of trial. Announcing "ready for trial" also means that the defense lawyer has prepared his case for trial by gathering all necessary defense witnesses via subpoena, having ready all charts and/or exhibits to present to the jury, pulling the necessary jury instructions for the end of testimony, etc.. I have done this several hundred times since 2001 which in one year alone resulted in over 120 cases getting dismissed after I announced "ready for trial." The single most important virtue a defense lawyer can possess is the ability to be willing, ready and able to fight his clients case to a jury. If you find a criminal defense attorney who has better results than what's listed on my website then hire them and not me.
