Aggressive Criminal Defense Attorneys Fighting For Your Second Chance

All criminal offenses can lead to punishments, but some crimes are more serious than others. Violent crimes carry the most severe penalties, which can permanently alter the course of your life if you’re convicted.

You can spend decades behind bars if you’re convicted of a violent crime – not to mention the negative impact a criminal record would have on your future opportunities. With so much at stake, you can’t afford to leave your defense to an inexperienced lawyer.

We at Zarabi Firm APC are more than ready to take on your case and aggressively represent you in criminal court. Led by attorney Elliot Zarabi, our Los Angeles team has over 60 years of combined experience in criminal defense. We know how to develop a strategy to protect your rights, freedom and future. We also have extensive experience as trial lawyers, and we can adjust our defense strategy to your needs. Let us fight for your best interests – and your second chance.

The High Stakes Involved In Violent Crime Charges

Violent crimes are, more often than not, felony offenses. A conviction for one may lead to years of prison time. Even those violent crimes that are misdemeanors, such as simple assault and battery, carry some of the highest possible sentences for offenses at that level.

A conviction for the following offenses will lead to these corresponding punishments:

Assault And Battery

  • Simple assault: Up to six months in county jail
  • Simple battery: Up to six months in county jail
  • Battery causing serious bodily injury: Up to a year of imprisonment in county jail


  • Voluntary manslaughter: Three to 11 years in state prison
  • Involuntary manslaughter: Two to four years in state prison


  • Second-degree murder: 15 years to life in state prison
  • First-degree murder: 25 years to life in state prison


  • Second-degree robbery (without use of a firearm/deadly weapon): Two to five years in state prison
  • First-degree robbery (with use of firearm/deadly weapon or causing great bodily injury): Three to nine years in state prison

Sex Crimes

  • Rape: Three to eight years in state prison
  • Lewd acts with a child under 14: Three to eight years in state prison
  • Continuous sexual abuse of a child: Six to 16 years in state prison

Whether you face charges for sex crimes, murder or manslaughter, assault or another violent crime, we will aggressively represent you in court and fight for your rights.
