Los Angeles criminal defense attorney Stephen Sitkoff was recently recognized by Super Lawyers magazine in its 2017 annual list of top-rated Southern California attorneys in the legal practice area of criminal defense law. Through a patented selection process, involving peer nominations, independent research, peer reviews, and professional achievements, no more than less than 5% of practicing attorneys in the state of California receive this honor and recognition. —
"Our firm is proud to see Mr. Sitkoff honored and recognized in this manner. This shows his dedication to his field and his clients, something we see in the office every day. We are thrilled to see that others are acknowledging him for his hard work also," James Kim, spokesperson for Takakjian & Sitkoff, LLP, states.
Steve earned his B.A. in History from UCLA in 1978, and his J.D. from Loyola Marymount University in 1982. After passing the California State BAR exam on his first attempt, Steve began his legal career 1983 as a deputy district attorney with the Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office before being appointed a Los Angeles County Superior Court Commissioner at the Edmund D. Edleman Childrens Court in Los Angeles from 1994 to 1995. Steve eventually transitioned into private law practice in 1996, and has since then practiced criminal and DUI defense law exclusively. A married father of twin girls, when he is not tirelessly advocating for clients in court, Steve enjoys running and coaching his girls' youth basketball team.
"I am humbled by the selection and feel honored to receive recognition from my peers. My goal is to serve my clients to the best of my ability while working to ensure they receive the best outcome possible," Sitkoff explains.
Steve is managing partner of the Los Angeles based criminal and DUI defense firm Takakjian & Sitkoff, LLP. Along with his partner, attorney Paul Takakjian, the firm solely focuses on defending clients facing criminal and DUI charges throughout Southern California.
"Very few things are as frightening as facing time behind bars, yet many people find they are in this situation. Turn to our firm and we will work to ensure your rights are protected and you receive fair treatment as you move through the legal system," Kim declares.
