Driving under the influence is a serious charge that can have lasting consequences on your life. Thankfully, Sam has experience with defending DUI charges. An inexperienced DUI defense attorney can make your case even worse. It is important to ensure that your DUI defense lawyer knows and can execute the best defense options for your unique case. 

Domestic Violence

Being charged with domestic violence can be terrifying. A conviction comes with significant penalties and a ruined reputation. There are two sides to every story and you need someone on your side to make sure you are heard. Domestic violence attorneys need to be able to determine the best actions to take. Sam has the know-how to give you the best possible domestic violence defense. 

Drug Offenses 

There are a few charges that fall under drug offenses, such as possession or drug trafficking. The penalties for drug charges are heavy, and a drug charge can ruin your future. Especially federal offense level drug charges. A drug offense attorney can help you in this crucial time. Sam will give you advice and a defense that can defend your future. 


Theft and fraud are blanket terms that cover many different crimes, so these charges are very common. These charges could cover serious crimes, such as identity theft, grand theft auto, embezzlement, and forgery. They also cover crimes as simple as shoplifting. Since the crimes behind these charges can be so varied, you need a theft and fraud attorney that is able to build an effective defense based on your specific case. Sam will give you step-by-step assistance and peace of mind.

Sex Crimes

Sex crime convictions will flip your life upside down. Penalties for such convictions include:

  • Prison
  • Time served in jail or prison
  • Registering as a sex offender
  • Parole or Probation 
  • Prohibition on owning a weapon

With such serious charges, you need to ensure you have a competent sex crime attorney. Having an experienced sex crime defense lawyer like Sam by your side is extremely important in cases like this. Convictions like these have major impacts on your future, affecting where you can live, what jobs you can have, and even who you can talk to. Geller Law will fight for your future. 


While marijuana is legal in California, there are still marijuana-related charges that you could be facing. Possessing a certain amount of marijuana or selling, transporting, or growing marijuana without a license can still lead to legal repercussions. In times like these, Geller Law will provide you with experienced, step-by-step assistance, giving you the best possible defense.

Gun Charges

While you do have the constitutional right to own a firearm, that doesn’t mean you can’t face gun charges. Carrying or concealing a gun improperly, being in possession of a gun as a felon, or possessing assault weapons are all chargeable offenses. Sam has successfully defended gun charge cases before, including gun possession charges. If you want someone with the experience and knowledge to defend your second amendment rights, contact Sam today.

Criminal Defense

Criminal defense is a blanket term that covers both felonies and misdemeanors. Most people know being charged with a felony is a serious matter, but misdemeanor convictions can have major impacts on your life as well. Geller Law is determined to provide excellent representation to its clients, no matter how big or small the charge. If you are facing a felony or misdemeanor charge, get in touch with Geller Law. 


Expungements provide second chances for people who have faced criminal charges. Even if you are found not guilty, having charges on your record can impact your professional relationships and future. Having an experienced expungement lawyer on your side could be the difference between a clean slate and a tarnished record. At Geller Law, we understand how important a second chance is, and we are determined to help you move on from your past and embrace your future.  


No one is perfect and there are times when someone will be convicted of a crime they didn’t commit. This makes the appeals process a crucial step in getting justice. Sam Geller understands how stressful, yet crucial, this process is and will help you through every step of the appeal process. Without a competent criminal defense appeal attorney at your side, the chances of getting an appeal are slim-to-none.
