Chazin is a Board Certified Criminal Law Specialist* with the experience to handle every aspect of child pornography charges, from putting out media fires to providing aggressive courtroom defense. His record of success over the past two decades speaks for itself.

Questioning the Accusations

Charges involving the possession or distribution of child pornography, on-line solicitation of a minor, or other internet sex crimes are some of the most serious charges you can face. Your entire future may be at stake. You may have to spend significant time in prison or jail. You may be required to register as a sex offender pursuant to Penal Code 290 or the Adam Walsh Act in federal court. Your family life may never be the same.

Attorney Chazin has the knowledge and skill needed to produce results. If you become aware of a pending investigation, he may be able to stop formal charges from being filed. However, if you have been formally charged with possession of child pornography, he will launch a comprehensive investigation into the facts of your case. He will find answers to the important questions:

  • Are the images actually pornography under the legal definition?
  • Where on your computer were the images located?
  • Is the computer shared by several people or did others have access to your computer?
  • Did you download images?
  • Did law enforcement follow appropriate procedures?
  • Did you unintentionally receive the images through a mass e-mail or accidental visit to a website?
  • Is your wireless connection subject to hacking?

Offering Post-Conviction Representation

In some child pornography cases, a conviction is inevitable. Whether Seth P. Chazin represented you in your original case or whether it was handled by another lawyer, he is fully prepared to assist with all forms of post-conviction relief, including appeals, expungements or certificates of rehabilitation to clear your record and your name, or to terminate your obligation to register as a sex offender.
