Ventura is a beautiful beachside city in Southern California, connected to the Los Angeles area by US Route 101. Officially known as the City of San Buenaventura, the area has strong connections to the Chumash tribe, along with recent efforts to become a center for high-tech businesses. Its most popular attractions include surfer-friendly beaches and the Majestic Ventura Theater.

In 2012, a survey of the crime rate in Ventura found that there was a decrease in violent crime, but an increase in property crimes, with a 45% increase in auto theft and a 21% increase in burglary.

Protecting the Rights of Ventura Residents

Most of Ventura’s population consists of families both young and old. To keep families safe from criminal accusations and the disruption of a household member being incarcerated, they deserve access to a qualified attorney who has experiences in common criminal charges.


The business community is strong in Ventura, so it’s expected that they take matters like shoplifting very seriously. However, sometimes a person can be accused of shoplifting when they took an item from the store by accident or were falsely identified for the real thief. It helps in such cases to have a compassionate attorney who can run an aggressive defense in court and question the prosecution on the strength of their evidence.


According to the most recent survey by the City of Ventura, the community has faced a 14% increase in acts of larceny or theft. Ventura residents will find themselves with a much larger need to get solid representation in court. That’s where Mr. Kestenbaum can put his experience as a former prosecutor to work. He’ll use his knowledge of the law to poke holes in the prosecution’s case against the accused.

Drug Crimes

While many families occasionally face the challenge of a child or spouse facing arrest for possessing marijuana or some other illegal drug, there are other ways that an otherwise normal household can face trouble with the law. If you’re accused of abusing prescription drugs, you’ll need the help of a lawyer who understands search-and-seizure practices and every nuance of California drug laws.
