Nasatir, Hirsch, Podberesky & Khero is a firm of nationally recognized outstanding lawyers who zealously represent individuals and organizations in criminal investigations, at trial and on appeal in federal and California state courts. Our partners have been perennially recognized as among the top five percent of lawyers in their field by Super Lawyers, and included in the peer rated "Best Lawyers in America." Our youngest partner has been named a "Southern California Rising Stars" by Super Lawyers. Two of our firm's partners are Certified Specialists in Criminal Law, by the California State Bar, a specialization held by less then four-hundred lawyers. We have a long-standing, hard earned and well deserved reputation, as a firm and as individuals, for providing committed and effective representation. We are regular speakers at professional education programs, have authored numerous articles on criminal law and procedure for legal treatises, law journals and periodicals and have appeared as guests and provided legal commentary for television and radio programs, such as CNN, including Larry King Live and CNBC.

Our clients have the unique advantage of having both the close, personal attorney-client relationship associated with a sole practitioner, and the resources, reputation and collaborative effort that are available only with a firm. The Firm has an unparalled record of successful results ranging from decisions not to file charges, pretrial dismissals, acquittals at trial and appellate reversals. Our clients also benefit from the broad range of experience we have in handling all types of criminal cases.

As a firm, we have the resources required to effectively represent individuals and corporations in complex white collar criminal investigations and prosecutions, and as individuals we each have the trial skills and negotiation abilities needed to successfully defend people accused of a broad range of crimes ranging from mail and wire fraud, bank and real estate related offenses, drug crimes and homicide to theft, professional licensing violations, OSHA violations, juvenile offenses and driving under the influence.
