Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 03, 2012
Former Los Angeles prosecutors Diana Weiss Aizman and Tami Shiffman have partnered to form Aizman Shiffman a law firm specializing and exclusively practicing criminal defense. The Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorneys of Aizman Shiffman have extensive training in jury selection and years of jury trial experience with outstanding results.
Diana Weiss Aizman participated in training LAPD officers on how to conduct DUI investigations as a part of the LAPD's Impaired Driver Apprehension Program. Her knowledge of the science and how it applies to DUI law makes her an asset in the DUI defense field. She has been trained on maintenance and calibration of the preliminary alcohol screening device, which is used by all law enforcement agencies in Los Angeles. In addition to her expertise in DUI laws, Ms. Aizman prosecuted thousands of criminal cases including domestic violence, trespass, manslaughter, drug crimes and vandalism. The experience and relationships that are built as a prosecutor make for an invaluable criminal defense attorney.
Tami Shiffman is a former criminal prosecutor and international criminal lawyer. She began her career as a criminal lawyer doing research and writing for the Cold Case Task Force in the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office. From there, Ms. Shiffman went on to practice international criminal law; fighting to bring foreign sovereigns’ to justice in United States District Court for crimes committed against US citizens abroad. In a natural progression, Ms. Shiffman joined the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office where she gained valuable trial experience as a prosecutor. Ms. Shiffman has handled hundreds of cases ranging from drug cases to assault and domestic violence. As a prosecutor, Ms. Shiffman honed her skills as a trial lawyer, oral advocate and tough negotiator.
"As former prosecutors, we have a unique insight into the system, and we understand the domino effect that a criminal accusation can have on the rest of a person's life," says Aizman.
