A Meticulous Investigator and Legal Advocate
When you are facing criminal charges, you are facing the crushing weight of a powerful government with almost unlimited resources to take away your freedom. My job as your defense attorney — my cause — is to stand up to them for you.
At the Law Offices of Diane Polan, you will not be judged. This is a friendly, comfortable place where you will feel welcomed and accepted. We will meticulously investigate every aspect of your case, focusing on seeking the best possible outcome.
Are You Being Investigated for a Crime?
Talk to an attorney as soon as possible. Remember — you do not have to talk to the police and you do not have to let them into your home unless they have a search warrant. In my experience as a criminal defense attorney, it never helps your case to speak with the police or to open your door to them.
