About Michael Norris

We have been engaged in the practice of criminal defense now for over 30 years, and we have been counsel of record in state and federal courts throughout the United States, both in trial, and on appeal. In 1983, in the case of People v. Edward Paul, the defendant was found not guilty, after trial, in what was acknowledged to be the only no-body murder case that the Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office had ever lost. As far back as 1981, in People v. Tuttle, 120 Cal.App.3d 320, we established new search and seizure rules restricting police access to the area around a personal residence. Most recently, I was counsel for Shia Labeouf, whose arrest for DUI, following a traffic collision, resulted in the eventual rejection of all charges by the Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office. I currently belong to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers; The Los Angeles County Bar Association, Criminal Section; The Criminal Courts Bar Association; The California Attorneys for Criminal Justice; The Benjamin Aranda Inns of Court; and the South Bay Bar Association. I am also a past member of both the Los Angeles Criminal Justice Inns of Court, and the Santa Monica/West Los Angeles Inns of Court. I have qualified as a Specialist Member with the California Drunk Driving Lawyers Association. I am licensed to practice law both in State and Federal court, and am qualified to practice law before both the United States District Court and the United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. I have served as an Editorial Consultant with James Publishing, one of the leading legal publishers in California, as well as a Contributor to Bell’s Search & Seizure Compendium, which was considered the preeminent legal publication, on that subject matter, in California. I am a currently a Contributor to California Drunk Driving Law. 2016 Winter Session Graduate

...and then, suddenly, it changed everything!


By Andrew Mishlove The art of storytelling is the primary skill of a trial lawyer. The old paradigm that we argue cases in court is misleading. The adversarial system is a storytelling contest. Facts, science, and logic inform our stories, but the story is the thing. So, what is a story? A story is a narrative that resonates with the listener because...

The NCDD Amicus Committee


By NCDD The National College for DUI Defense (NCDD) Amicus and Research Committee was formally created in 2002. The NCDD Amicus and Research Committee files amicus briefs as ‘friends of the court' in important appellate cases that involve the rights and privileges of persons accused of impaired driving offenses nationwide. Many of the nation's top impaired driving attorneys volunteer their time...
