Welcome to Jay Leiderman Law

Jay Leiderman Law handles criminal cases throughout Ventura County and the surrounding areas in California.

As a vigorous, aggressive and skilled criminal trial attorney, Jay Leiderman handles a variety of criminal cases – from murder to computer crimes to driving under the influence.

Since 2006, Jay Leiderman has been designated as a board certified specialist in Criminal Law from the State Bar of California’s Board of Legal Specialization (CBLS). Being board certified in criminal law is relatively rare. With over 200,000 licensed attorneys in California, less than 400 of of these attorneys are Certified Criminal Law Specialists.

Never a Prosecutor

Although many defense attorneys advertise that they once worked for the District Attorney or prosecutor’s office, at Jay Leiderman Law, we are proud of the fact that we’ve never worked to incarcerate individuals accused of crimes, nor would we.

Why would you hire someone who at one time worked hard to jail someone for the very crime for which you or your loved one is now being accused? Is that person one who believes in you and your case? Do they truly care about your rights? Did they care about them when they used to tell the judge to lock someone just like you up — to toss in jail?

Most ex-prosecutors advertise that they “know the judges” and can get you a special deal. After years of practice, experienced defense attorneys like Jay Leiderman know the judges just as well. But Jay Leiderman will fight your case – he’s not looking to get you a deal – he’s looking to WIN!

Insist on a Board Certified Specialist in Criminal Law

Hire someone that knows defense work inside and out, and believes in you, your rights, and your innocence. Hire someone with a proven record of always fighting for those just like you—not against you! Moreover, hire someone you know is Board Certified as a Specialist in Criminal Law by the California Bar Board of Legal Specialization.

At Jay Leiderman Law, we don’t take any case that walks through the door. Instead, we focus exclusively on criminal defense.

The District Attorney for Ventura County, Greg Totten, has vast resources and a team of dedicated prosecutors focused on prosecuting crimes. When fighting criminal charges, you need a criminal defense attorney focused on your defense, with the experience and passion to aggressively fight the charges.

If the crime allegedly occurred in Ventura County, then it will be prosecuted at the Ventura Hall of Justice, the East County Courthouse in Simi Valley, or the Juvenile Courthouse in Oxnard, CA.
