Take control of your story.
Under California law’s Penal Code 211, robbery is the taking of personal property that is in the possession of someone else from that person against his or her will or through the use of force or fear. And while robbery is a felony under state law, it can result in a wide range of penalties – anything from probation to several years in prison. An attorney with extensive experience and strong working relationships with prosecutors and judges can do the work to ensure your case gets the proper consideration for the lightest possible sentence. Stephen R. Kahn has over 40 years of criminal defense experience making sure his clients receive precisely this type of consideration.
Over the course of his career, Stephen Kahn has handled, and tried to a jury, multiple cases involving every aspect of robbery and commonly related offenses, including matters involving:
- First Degree Robbery
- Second Degree Robbery
- Sentence Enhancements for CA Robbery
- Robbery & California’s Three Strikes Felony Law
- Penal Code 215 Carjacking
- Penal Code 217 Kidnapping
- Penal Code 459 Burglary
- Penal Code 518 Extortion
- Penal Code 487 Grand Theft
- Penal Code 488 Petty Theft
With countless hours of negotiation and trial work under his belt, Stephen Kahn knows firsthand that the judicial system is rampant with biases that put race, socio-economics and class at the forefront of prosecutorial and sentencing discretion, especially in the area of property crimes. Accordingly, he has developed the tools and narrative skills to humanize defendants and their stories, making it much harder for prejudice and preconceived notions to influence outcomes. With Stephen Kahn as counsel, clients are presented as individuals, not statistics, and prosecutors, judges and juries respond in kind.
Stephen Kahn has successfully obtained not guilty verdicts in first-degree robbery cases on multiple occasions – something many attorneys cannot even claim o have done once.
