Not that long ago I had a rough experience with the campus police department. Due to the fact that I was late to one of my classes I irrationally decided to use a disabled placard. After I returned to my car a police officer was waiting for me. The ticket which he issued stated that it was a misdemeanor. I was devastated and did not know what to do. A few weeks later when I decided to request some quotes from criminal defense attorneys. Unlike the rest Christopher did not mention a very high price and offered to arrange a meeting on Saturday. It was important for me to find an experienced attorney, because at that time I was in the process of acquiring my citizenship. As a result of his diligent and outstanding job, on the day of my interview there was nothing in the Court system regarding my ticket. Hence, the officer conducting the interview did not bother including this ticket to the application, because she read a letter explaining the issue (which could potentially have an impact on my case, possibly denying it). I am very glad that my family hired Chris. He is always polite, professional, and patient. I will definitely refer everyone who needs criminal defense. If you want the best service, do not waste your time looking for it elsewhere. Thank you again Chris and best wishes.

Zack is a fellow attorney in OC that I've known for years. He is tough as nails and a no non-sense guy. He is incredibly persistent in pursuing motions and never lets th DA's off the hook. I really admire that. That's what you need in a defense attorney in OC because so many attorneys here are weak and not aggressive. Not Zack. He is thorough, knowledgeable and experienced.

I hired Parwana Anwar for my case through the recommendation of a friend. He suggested her because she used to be a DA and prosecute criminal cases before she switched over to criminal defense. And my friend was right. She's phenomenal. From her past experience as a DA, she knew exactly how the prosecutors were going to approach the case, and came up with a phenomenal defense. Long story short, I got the best possible outcome for my case. Beyond even what I thought was possible. She is phenomenally smart. I wouldn't hire anyone else.

Mr. Fierro was a referral when I was completely desperate for help in a Family Law matter. I am amazed and disgusted by the level of lying and dishonesty in Family Court. I am also amazed by Mr. Fierro's integrity in this corrupt system. Mr. Fierro is an officer of integrity and dignity. Mr. Fierro returned every phone call and answered every email promptly. Mr. Fierro's ability to understand, memorize, and argue my case in court was top-notch. I have reread my court case of 2011 several times. Mr. Fierro's representation was tenacious, accurate, timely, and completely truthful. Mr. Fierro helped me methodically attack and expose the lies that were highly unfavorable for me. My case was dismissed within two months and the fight for my children never occurred. Mr. Fierro well understood my priorities and my predicament. Mr. Fierro remains my first line of defense in legal matters.

I reached out to Mr. Youngquist regarding a family matter. I hadn't even paid him and he offered to go see my family member that was incarcerated. That meant so much to me. Now days you don't get attorneys who will do that. They want the money first. We are still working with him and we feel that he will put all he has into our situation. I would recommend Mr. Youngquist to anyone who is in need of a criminal defense attorney.

I have been practicing law for 20 years, and Tom Loversky is one of the finest criminal defense attorneys I have ever met. He is extremely bright, he listens well, he speaks plain English (not "legalese"), and he gives back to the community. I give him my highest endorsement.

Thank you to attorney Rodriguez and Emmanuel. I was in distress over doing prison time on two grand theft charges (the other charge came 2 months later) and a charge for possession of an illegal substance. Their legal team was helpful and I was able to put my life back together with a decent paying job while my case was being fought in court and I am grateful for the help I received. I ended up only doing 6 months on house arrest on all three charges, and of course paying court fines. I highly recommend the services of attorney Rodriguez and his legal staff, they are a winning team.

I was out with friends about 6 months ago and had a bit too much to drink and ended up in a car accident. I have never been in trouble with the law before and this was a very scary thing for me, especially since I work on a governmental job and having that on my record could be detrimental to my career. Mr. Pilato understood my predicament and him and the investigator he work with was able to throughly investigate the situation and also brought several experts witnesses to testify during the trial. Long story short he was able to get me an acquittal. Also, he is available at all times and made sure I understood everything that was going on throughout the whole process. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends if they ever need a criminal lawyer. Joseph Ramirez

Ese is one of the sharpest criminal defense lawyers you will find here in Los Angeles. He is not only very personable, but super knowledgable in criminal law and civil rights. I was looking for a lawyer that would devote 100% of his energy to my case. He gave me 110% and after a long and explosive trial that we just wrapped up, the court read back the NOT GUILTY verdicts I was hoping for! The level of stress one goes through trying to find the right lawyer can be overwhelming. I knew I found the right lawyer after my first meeting with him. I highly recommend the Omofoma Law Firm.

Brad Jensen worked as one of four full time members of the Los Angeles District Attorneys Office who helped actually convict the Menendez Brothers for the shotgun killings of their parents. He is very good with judges, prosecutors, court staff, witnesses and anyone in a position to help him help you get the best possible plea bargain or result. He has helped me and many others who I have referred to him regardless of the criminal charge he is an attorney you want by your side.

After a thorough review of your new case, we will develop a strategy and approach to deal with the unique issues presented in your case. Mr. Tedford’s criminal trial experience has included cases where his clients were charged with murder, attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, possession of controlled substance with intent to sell, and a variety of other criminal offenses. He is very experienced with both federal and state court cases. Here are just a few letters received from clients of Tedford & Associates, following the conclusion of their matter: • Testimonial #1 Mr. James Tedford, May I again express our appreciation to you for so very ably representing my son Scott in his recent arrest and charge. You obviously represented him with excellence and good judgment, and we are very much appreciative of your good work. You came highly recommended to us by Mr. N-----, and when Scott and I first met with you, we easily came to the conclusion that you would represent Scott very well. I have also written a note of appreciation to Mr. N----- for directing us to you, and I indicated how very pleased we are with your services. Sincerely, V.F. H- • Testimonial #2 Dear Mr. Tedford, Re: Case Number------------- Booking Number----------- I want to thank you for the superior work and the marvelous outcome regarding the above referenced case. I believe you correctly analyzed the key points of the complaint and carefully planned a course of action to defuse it. The results were not only a complete dismissal, but also an approved petition to “seal and destroy” any records regarding the incident. In addition, your fee was fair, and you were always available to me. I felt that you handled the case with great integrity, and I wanted to put my thoughts and feelings in writing to you. I hope to never again be in a position to need this kind of representation, but I can certainly strongly recommend your services to others who find themselves in need of professional legal counsel. Thank you and the very best to you. Sincerely, Michael --------
