Criminal Defense Services

At the Law Office of Danny Saleh, our firm devotes all of its experience, resources, and expertise to defending those facing criminal prosecutions. We are firmly committed in safeguarding the rights of individuals against potential abuse by overzealous prosecutors and law enforcement officers. When prosecutors bring criminal charges in the form of misdemeanor or felony allegations, they have distinct advantages against private individuals. These advantages include an enormous stable of investigators and virtually unlimited litigation resources. Pomona criminal defense lawyer Danny Saleh seeks to balance the scales of justice by tenaciously defending his clients’ rights and persuasively advocating for the best possible outcome for his client given the facts and circumstances. While our law firm provides effective criminal defense against the full spectrum of criminal offenses, some of the types of criminal matters that we handle include those indicated below.

Violent Crime Defense

Individuals charged with a violent crime cannot afford to face the prospect of years in a penitentiary without the services of an experienced defense attorney. These types of criminal offenses tend to carry the most serious penalties that can irreparably impact a person’s life even after serving a sentence and fulfilling the terms and conditions of probation. Some examples of the violent crimes we handle include:

  • Mayhem
  • Rape
  • Voluntary Manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Drive-By Shooting
  • Residential Burglary
  • Attempted Murder
  • Discharge of a Firearm into an Inhabited Building
  • Personal Use of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony
  • Bank Robbery
  • Kidnapping
  • Assault with a Deadly Weapon
  • Criminal Threats
  • Arson
  • Throwing Acid at a Person
  • Forcible Sodomy
  • Forcible Sexual Penetration

Drug Crime Defense

The war on drugs has resulted in collateral damage with many people with addictions face criminal penalties rather than treatment. Although there are diversion options in California, such as deferred entry of judgment (DEJ) under PC 1000 and Prop 36 for non-violent drug offenses. We explore both the prospect of an acquittal or dismissal and potential diversion options to identify the best possible outcome for our clients. Examples of the types of California drug crimes our firm handles include the following:

  • Possession of Methamphetamine (HS 11377a)
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance (HS 11350)

Theft Crimes

Whether you are accused of theft involving the use of force, embezzlement, or fraud, these types of property offenses can result in serious penalties. In addition to the criminal penalties which include potential incarceration and significant fines, you might experience extra-legal consequences, such as disqualification for certain professional and state occupational licenses. Pomona Criminal Defense Lawyer Danny Saleh works diligently to keep you out of jail and to mitigate any long-term consequences of a theft charge. A few of the theft crimes we handle include:

  • Petty Theft (Shoplifting)
  • Grand Theft
  • Embezzlement
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Receiving Stolen Property
  • Robbery/Burglary
  • Appropriation of Lost Property

DUI Defense/Traffic Tickets

The severity of a traffic related offense can range dramatically from a minor speeding ticket for going a few mph over the speed limit to vehicular homicide. If you are charged with a driving-related offense, you should seek legal advice to determine whether you should hire a private criminal defense attorney. Many motor vehicle offenses constitute misdemeanors or felonies, so a conviction can have a serious impact on your future. Some of the driving-related offenses for which we provide effective defense include:

  • Driving under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs (DUI)
  • Hit and Run
  • Driving on a Suspended License
  • Driving without a License
  • Vehicular Manslaughter
  • Street Racing
  • Reckless Driving
  • Speeding (Exhibition of Speed)
  • Habitual Traffic Offender
  • Failure to Yield (Running Red Light or Traffic Signal)


Whether you have suffered a misdemeanor or felony conviction, the consequences can impact your life long after you have fully served your sentence and fulfilled any terms of probation. Our law firm offers expungement services which can mitigate the impact of a conviction on your future employment opportunities.
