Chazin has over 30 years of experience and aggressively works to protect clients and their future.

Aggressive Sex Crime Defense

In California, all individuals convicted for internet sex offenses and other sex crimes are required to be listed on Meagan's List as a sex offender. Public registration as a sex offender can damage an individual's career and family relationships, and cause mistrust and hostility in his neighborhood and community. There are procedures which may allow a defendant to avoid conviction, prison, and registration as a sex offender. Through investigation, negotiation, and litigation Mr. Chazin works to vigorously avoid such consequences in cases involving:

  • Child pornography
  • Internet solicitation of a minor
  • Child molestation
  • Child sexual abuse
  • Other computer related sex crimes

Mitigating Evidence and Resulting Consequences

The increase in technology over the years has also caused an increase in hacking and spam. This has left many people vulnerable to illegal content being sent to their email or being downloaded onto their computer. In addition, this technology has increased prosecution for computer and internet crimes.

Records, even the deleted ones, are permanently inscribed into an individual's computer hard drive. However, Mr. Chazin uses forensic computer experts to perform an independent analysis of a client's hard drive. He makes the prosecution prove that any illegal material was on the hard drive with your knowledge. He utilizes this defense strategy to minimize charges, get cases dismissed, or effectively resolve cases involving internet sex crimes.

Recent Victory/Successful Defense

One example of the law firm's exceptional ability to handle such serious cases, involves a child pornography case in Petaluma, Sonoma County, California.

Client caught trying to communicate with female minor and distributing large amounts of child pornography to undercover cop. The client actually confessed to possession of the child pornography and destroyed some computer components which the police later found. However, forensic analysis and legal research, along with tough negotiations and aggressive stance with the district attorney resulted in all charges being dismissed. Mr. Chazin showed that there was no way to prove that the client knowingly possessed child pornography. The case was dismissed.
