If you are staring down the barrel of felony charges, you urgently need to find a seasoned defender who has experience handling complex cases. Your freedom and your future depend on it. I specialize in defending complex criminal accusations, winning cases at trial even when they involved charges of trafficking crystal meth or a murder-one charge. In fact, I have an 80% success rate at trial in federal courts across the nation.

For more than 45 years, I have successfully represented clients charged with serious felonies in both state and federal courts throughout the United States. Backed by an unparalleled track record of results, I am a federal criminal defense lawyer who is known for professionalism and stellar talent (AV Preeminent® Rating); and recognized as a leader in the criminal defense field (multiple selections for Super Lawyers®). I have also been certified by the California State Bar as a Criminal Law Specialist. A certification reserved for the most experienced criminal defense attorneys. It requires additional Continuing Legal Education(CLE), special testing, and reporting experience in the number of trials I have done.

When you need one of the top federal crime lawyers in the nation, call me for your FREE defense consultation: 855-716-4848.

You don't have to be of celebrity status to hire me, but it's good to know the Hollywood community has entrusted me with their lives on numerous occasions.

I have been featured in a recent Forbes magazine article entitled "Guns for Hire," for my high-profile representations that have landed me in the same company as other famous attorneys including O.J. Simpson defenders Johnnie Cochran, F. Lee Bailey and Robert Shapiro:

"BEING A CELEBRITY LAWYER HAS CHANGED.Suddenly there are more serious crimes out there - crimes entertainment lawyers aren't qualified to deal with."

Insights From Attorney Alan Baum

"Practicing in Federal Court is a challenge that excites me. My enthusiasm shows up in the superior results I have obtained for my clients. The Federal Sentencing Guidelines are a problem, one that takes creativity, skill, and experience that lawyers who do only ‘some’ Federal Cases simply don’t have."
