VERONICA T. BARTON
Tel: (213) 377-6102
Veronica T. Barton founded the Law Offices of Veronica T. Barton in order to provide a highly personalized, detailed-oriented defense for every single one of her clients.
Veronica received her bachelor's degree from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She then went on to earn her law degree cum laude from Loyola University Chicago. Veronica is admitted to practice law in the State of California, the U.S Federal District Court for the Central District of California, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Veronica has represented clients charged with all levels of criminal defenses, from simple traffic offenses to serious and violent felonies.
One of Veronica's most memorable victories was a recent jury trial in which her client was charged with felony domestic violence. His ex-girlfriend had accused him of strangling her. Although her client was offered probation at the last minute, he didn't take the deal. He couldn't; he would've lost his job and ruined his future prospects. But if they lost the case, he faced up to four years in prison.
At trial, the prosecution presented photos of black bruises in the shape of fingers on the ex's neck. The prosecution presented multiple witnesses, including an expert witness who testified that the dark bruises on the ex's neck were caused by strangulation. They presented the tearful testimony of his ex-girlfriend.
But Veronica argued that her client had acted in self-defense: that the ex had attacked her client first. She ruthlessly cross-examined his ex. She argued each and every inconsistency to the jury and tore apart the ex's credibility. In the late morning, just after closing arguments, the jury began deliberations. By the end of lunchtime, they had a verdict: not guilty.
Not only does Veronica fight hard for her clients, but her tireless attention to detail ensures that every single one of her clients receives the best possible outcome.

YOUR BEST DEFENSE
If you were a criminal defense attorney and someone you loved was arrested, what would you do to help them? The answer, of course, is absolutely everything.
You would consider each and every defense in attacking the prosecution's case. You would negotiate hard with the DA to get the best possible offer on the table. You would argue the case in front of a jury at trial if you had to.
Absolutely everything. That's what we do.
When you've been arrested and have a criminal case pending, there is a whole range of possible outcomes. The outcome you end up with depends entirely upon your defense team. We take a two-pronged approach to ensure that every one of our clients has the absolute best possible outcome–the outcome that we'd want for our own loved ones.
First, we attack the prosecution's evidence, filing motions to weaken their case and meticulously going over every detail to build a winning defense and tear apart the prosecution's case. Second, we get to know our clients–their backgrounds and personal circumstances–and we use that information to persuade the prosecutor and the judge to give them a second chance.
We put the time and attention to detail in so that, at the end of each and every case, we know that we succeeded in getting our client the absolute best possible outcome.
If you or someone you love have been arrested, we can help you. Call us now at (213) 377-6102.
