ORANGE COUNTY CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYERS

Former Prosecutors Now Defending Your Rights

The attorneys at Kundani & Chang LLP have always remained committed to a tradition of excellence.... our history of success in even the most challenging cases is unparalleled.

A criminal charge can be a very intimidating process: the stress of dealing with an arrest, questioning by the police, spending time in jail, posting a bond, attending court hearings, and the thought of losing your liberty. Many people feel absolutely powerless. But with such real life consequences, the most critical decision you have is choosing your criminal defense attorney.

A good criminal defense attorney not only knows the law, not only has tried countless cases to verdict, not only has a track record of success, but is one who is also familiar with the way prosecutors and judges think. Or, better yet, a good criminal defense attorney actually knows the prosecutors and judges handling your case.

At Kundani & Chang LLP, you are not just hiring an attorney. Rather, you are retaining the reputation we have solidified in the community for the past 20 years combined. Not only have we built contacts and relationships with prosecutors, law enforcement and judges within the criminal justice system who will be the ultimate decision-makers in your case, but as former prosecutors ourselves, we know the inner workings of the investigations conducted by these offices. Often times, we can simply pick up the phone and call the detective handling your case or the prosecutor assigned to your matter. Many times, we are able to convince the D.A. or the judge to dismiss the charges, reduce the counts, or offer you a non-jail probationary diversion. We know the right things to look for in analyzing the charges, and we know the right way to work up a case. With thousands of criminal cases under our belt, and with over a 98% trial success rate, people know that when Kundani & Chang LLP takes on a case, we mean business. As career trial attorneys, it’s that simple.

When you ask around, you will find that not many criminal defense attorneys have trained members of law enforcement, including the Sheriff’s Department, LAPD, ATF, and FBI, or have had their cases featured in CNN or the New York Times, or have been asked to provide legal commentary on local radio stations or print media. At Kundani & Chang LLP, we have done all of these, so rest assured, our attorneys have the experience and knowledge your case needs so that you and your family can have the peace of mind you need.

We understand the mental and emotional toll such high-stakes can have on you, your family, and loved ones, so contact our attorneys today so we can help you begin to move forward.
