Boris Bindman

Boris Bindman joined the Maas Law Offices as an associate in 2017. He began his career in criminal defense by working for the Solano County Public Defender's Office after graduating with honors from Washington and Lee School of Law and UCLA. Before joining Maas Law Offices, Boris sharpened his skills by representing clients in a broad array of criminal matters as a Deputy Public Defender for Lassen County, including: Driving Under the Influence, Reckless Driving, Evading Arrest, Vehicle Offenses, Assault, Battery, Drug and Paraphernalia Possession, Firearm Offenses, Theft, Marijuana Cultivation and Possession, Fish and Game Violations, Domestic Violence, Violation of Protective Orders, Resisting Arrest, Vandalism, and Sex Offenses. Boris’s extensive experience includes representing clients in Jury Trials, Court Trials, Motions to Suppress, Motions to Dismiss, Discovery Motions, Pre-trial Negotiations, Plea Bargaining, Sentencing Hearings, Probation Violation Hearings, Investigations, Appeals, and Post-Conviction Reductions and Dismissals.

Boris has devoted himself to a career in criminal defense and fighting for the rights of the accused—a passion stemming from his own experiences as an accused after he falsely arrested due to a misidentification when he was a minor. This experience left him intimately aware of the kind of stress and fear a criminal accusation causes in one's life. Bringing this memory to the courtroom and negotiating table alike, Boris fights with integrity and compassion for his clients every step of the way. Maas Law Offices is proud to welcome Boris to the team, for his rapid achievements and client-centered approach to representation and advocacy have quickly gained him a reputation as a fearless and zealous advocate for his clients.
