Practice Areas

Criminal Defense: California is known for having some of the toughest sentences in the country, so hiring an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney is the single most important thing you can do if charged with a criminal offense. With the help of our criminal defense attorneys, you won’t have to face the police, prosecutors, or courts alone. If you have been arrested, you need a criminal lawyer with extensive experience, skills, and knowledge in every area of criminal law. From violent to white-collar crimes, federal offenses to felonies, our firm has successfully represented clients in the following areas of criminal law:

Highlighted Case: A defendant faced 18 charges including first-degree robbery and assault with a semiautomatic firearm following an incident involving a marijuana transaction in June of 2018. The state of California has dismissed all charges against the defendant.

Mental Health: If you have psychiatric issues and have been charged with a crime in the state of California, you will need a knowledgeable mental health attorney to protect your best interests in and out of court. You should look for a criminal defense attorney who has successfully kept mentally ill clients out of prison and has helped them get the psychiatric help they deserve. When dealing with a client’s mental health as it relates to the criminal justice system, there are two issues at hand:

  1. Is the client currently competent to stand trial?
  2. Was the client legally sane at the time the crime was being committed?

Whether or not the defendant was sane at the time the crime was committed is unrelated to the defendant’s competency to stand trial. A person can be legally sane when a crime is committed and then become mentally incapacitated after their arrest. Likewise, a defendant may have committed a crime during a temporary psychotic episode but be fully capable of standing trial at present. Our law firm has successfully defended the rights of defendants dealing with mental health issues.

Highlighted Case: In 2019, Kenneth Rosenfeld represented a defendant that was facing life in prison on attempted murder charges for discharging a gun at a firefighter. In the end, the DA on the case dismissed the attempted murder charges.

Prison Law: Being sent to prison does not mean that you lose your legal rights, even if it feels like it. California state prisoners have the right and ability to challenge the decision made by the Board of Parole. And according to California prison law, CA prisoners may file a petition for ‘Writ of Habeas Corpus” which challenges Board of Parole Hearing decisions. To do so, you need an experienced prison law attorney by your side. 

Highlighted Case: Thanks to the intervention of Kenneth Rosenfeld, a man with brain damage who avoided receiving a life sentence without parole in 2019 for attempted murder might have his sentence further amended. Mr. Rosenfeld’s petition to California’s Sixth District Court of Appeal for a Writ of Habeas Corpus prompted the appellate court to command the review of that order. 

Sex Offender Defense: If you are accused of a sex crime in the state of California, it is critical that you hire an experienced sex crime defense attorney before you are formally charged. If you wait until after you are formally charged, you will permanently have a sex offender arrest on your record. If that happens, regardless of whether or not the charge against you is dismissed, having that on your record can severely impact your life as potential employers and landlords may find out about your past. Unlike other crimes, sex crimes carry a stigma in society that can follow defendants for the rest of their lives. When you hire us, a team of private investigators will begin an aggressive search for evidence that could clear your name.

The Rosenfeld Law Firm has obtained dismissals and not guilty verdicts in many different types of sex crime cases. If you have been charged with any of the following, our experienced attorneys will aggressively fight for your freedom:

  • Rape
  • Indecent Exposure
  • Lewd Conduct – Engaging in Lewd Conduct
  • Lewd Conduct – Solicitation for Lewd Conduct
  • Sexual Battery
  • Statutory Rape
  • Penal Code 288 – Lewd Acts With a Child
  • Penal Code 311 – Possession of Child Pornography
  • Prostitution – Engaging in Prostitution
  • Prostitution – Solicitation of Prostitution
  • Sex Registration (Failure to Register)
