Defending Mental Health Concerns

Championing the Rights of Individuals with Mental Health Issues at Rubin Law, P.C. in Los Angeles

At RLPC, we recognize the unique challenges faced by individuals with mental health issues when interacting with law enforcement and the legal system, especially in Los Angeles. For those with severe mental illnesses, discerning when their actions breach legal boundaries can be incredibly difficult. Their ability to effectively communicate with law enforcement, who often lack training in recognizing or deescalating situations involving mental illness, is frequently compromised. This gap in understanding and communication can lead to individuals with mental health conditions being wrongfully detained, arrested, or charged with crimes they either did not commit or did not realize they were committing.

Despite ongoing efforts, the criminalization of mental illness persists in California. Those experiencing a psychotic episode, panic attack, manic episode, or adverse reactions to medications are often misinterpreted as being a threat due to drug or alcohol abuse. Without proficient legal representation, many of these individuals unjustly face incarceration. Being incarcerated not only hinders their recovery but can also worsen the very conditions that contributed to their legal issues.
