Bird & Bird has been located in the South Bay since 1990. The firm was started by Karen Hunter Bird in 1990. In 1993, Karen was joined at the firm by partner George Bird. Karen and George practiced together as a “husband and wife team” until 2015 when George was appointed as a judge of the Los Angeles Superior Court.

Karen has over 30 years of experience in handling criminal law cases. She began her career as a certified law student with the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office. Immediately after passing the bar, she worked at the Los Angeles County Public Defender's office. Since 1990, Bird & Bird has represented thousands of clients in the South Bay area and other parts of Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.

Not only is Karen experienced in handling criminal cases, she prides her firm in client communication and client relationships. If you are her client, you will always speak with her if you have questions and see her in court handling your case. Karen will not ask you to write reviews and will avoid media attention to your case.

Our Service

We believe communication with our clients is of paramount importance; that is why we go above and beyond to be available to answer any and all questions you may have about your case.

With the combination of our extensive knowledge, years of experience, caring and understanding, we can proudly say that the service you receive from Bird & Bird is unparalleled.

Bird & Bird generally handle clients that have been referred to our firm by an attorney, judge, prosecutor, or former client. We do not send directed advertisement (“jail mail”), or make outrageous promises just to get business. Nor do we share information about past clients on our website, as we strive to keep our clients out of the press and handle their privacy with the utmost respect; which is also why we never ask our clients to give a public endorsement.

We are available to analyze your specific needs during a one-on-one personal meeting. Karen Bird personally handles all cases, and our clients are never passed off to an associate lawyer or paralegal that may have less experience.

Our law firm not only practices in the Torrance area, but serves clients all around the Southern California region. South Bay cities include: Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, El Segundo, Gardena and many other cities in the Southern California area. We also service Orange, San Bernadino, Riverside and Ventura Counties.

Our Philosophy

Contact us

We do not dabble in other practice areas such as family law, personal injury, tax or probate. Our commitment to clients in need of criminal defense is evident in our experience with virtually all types of adult and juvenile criminal matters, including serious and violent felonies, misdemeanors, infractions, traffic, and appeals. The practice encompasses state and federal court matters and related administrative proceedings as well.

Over the years, Bird & Bird has helped thousands of clients at all stages of the criminal legal process, including pre-filing / investigation, pre- and post-indictment / preliminary hearing, pre-trial, trial, sentencing, post-conviction and appeal.

We believe so strongly in our commitment to criminal defense that we dedicate valuable time and resources each year to the cause of improving the criminal justice system.

Our longstanding memberships and involvement with organizations such as the Los Angeles County Bar Association Criminal Justice Section, California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, and California Public Defenders Association demonstrate our seriousness and commitment to our field.

At Bird & Bird, we believe a criminal defense firm should focus on just that: Criminal Defense.

Most importantly, we believe in providing exceptional and unparalleled customer service to all of our clients, because attention and care are often most-needed and hardest-to-find when you are dealing with a criminal problem.

Why do you need a Criminal Attorney Now?

If you are arrested and released from custody, you have been given a date to return to court. Even though that court date may be several months away, you need to contact an attorney immediately. There may be work that can be done prior to the court date to make sure no charges are filed against you.
