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,

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.
