And she did so. Unlike “cookie cutter” law firms, RP Defense Law APC provides the most thorough and personalized attention to each of its clients. “I went into the field of criminal law to seek justice for the accused, the oppressed and the voiceless. I fight for the rights of those whom society turns their back on,” Ruzanna Poghosyan explains when asked why she chose criminal defense.

RP Defense Law APC has three central tenets: (1) aggressive representation, (2) individualized attention, and (3) comprehensive legal aid. The combination of these three principles has produced successful results for thousands of clients.

RP Defense Law APC handles criminal cases ranging from misdemeanors to most severe and violent felonies, such as rape, armed robbery, mayhem and homicide, to name a few. In addition, RP Defense Law APC has a strong focus in defending those accused of federal crimes, including white collar crimes, drug trafficking, human trafficking, immigration offense and hate crime acts.

She Was The Attorney For Me

I was referred over to Attorney Ruzanna Poghosyan through a family member to consult with her for a pending case I had. Her office staff was very polite & understood that my circumstances were pretty urgent & gave me an appointment right away. After I met with her, I was amazed with how much knowledge she had & how gracious she was with not judging me. She was very respectful & right then I knew that she was the Attorney for me. This office without a doubt is highly recommended.

My Case Was In Good Hands

I was referred to Ruzanna Poghosyan by a family friend for my case. Before contacting Ruzanna I was very nervous about my situation. Everybody was telling me I will go to jail. I couldn’t wait until Monday, so I called her on Saturday and she gave me an appointment on the same day. She was very helpful in answering my questions. I left her office knowing my case was in good hands. I ended up not going to jail and instead getting informal probation. I would definitely recommend Ruzanna to anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney because she is very knowledgeable in her field of practice.

I Strongly Recommend Hiring Ruzanna

I had received a DUI in Van Nuys, a known difficult court that does not grant any plea bargains. However, thanks to Ruzanna and her hard working efforts she was able to reduce my DUI into a reckless driving. I strongly recommend hiring Ruzanna as she is well prepared, communicates well explaining all premises clearly and puts the client’s mind at ease. She definitely knows what she is doing and is well experienced in criminal defense!
