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.

You never want to have to place a call to a Criminal Defense Lawyer - it usually isn't a good situation that you've found yourself in if you have. But if you're in a situation where you need to find qualified representation, then you should seriously give California Legal Councel a call. I was really impressed with the way that they handled my best friend's case. I was with her when she was arrested, and placed phone calls to find her a lawyer. I was referred through friends to a highly recommended attorney explained the case to him. He listened attentively about all of the details and then he referred me to California legal counsel . I went online and did some research. Everything I found online in the area (Los Angeles) told me that California legal counsel had the best track record for dealing with criminal cases - specifically the type that my friend had found herself involved in. From the first point of contact to the successful dismissal of all charges, California legal counsel proved to be a trusted and welcome ally in navigating through the red tape of the California Criminal Court system. I was reassured several times, made to feel as though I was a part of the process, and in turn was able to make sure that my friend had the right people on her side. The professional and respectful way in which my friend and I were treated was above and beyond what I had expected. They treat you and your case with the seriousness it deserves - and they fight for your rights. I can't recommend them enough and if you're in a bad situation or need to find good representation, do not hesitate to hire California legal counsel. Because of them, my friend was cleared of all charges, and she can put this experience behind her and move forward with her life.

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.

Gerard Fierro is a highly trained lawyer in the Family Court system. He competently manages the very complicated Family Court system with the best interest of his client always the number one priority. Gerard represented our family in a very challenging case. He clearly presented the risks and possible outcomes of the case prior to taking on the case which demonstrates his high level of integrity and honesty. Once we retained Gerard, he was fast to action and was even willing to work over a holiday weekend to ensure our case was ready for court on Monday morning. The high level of professionalism and competency from Gerard and his staff resulted in a successful outcome of our case. His calm demeanor is also a bonus! We will be forever indebted to Gerard for his excellent work in managing our case. We would highly recommend Gerard to any family dealing with Guardianship issues in Family Court.

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.

Mr. Martz is not like other lawyers. He is above and beyond the nicest and most down to earth lawyer I've met. Most lawyers are slow to reply, charge you a ton, and are rude. Not Kellan. He helped me with a DUI case I had a few months ago and got me a plea deal that was very fair. I made a mistake and needed help, Kellan did a great job and was very clear in explaining how everything worked in court. His prices were very competitive and he let me pay in three installments so I didn't have to come up with that much all at once. Thanks Kellan.

The Glendale PD does not tolerate too- too much especially, the biker ones. I got a DUI near Glendale and South Pasadena with a little bit more on me than just some beer. I was expecting the hammer to come down especially for my second time but all- in all the experience was not that bad looking back. I panicked at first. I thought I was banned from everything and was about to lose everything (which is common in Los Angeles so). None of that mattered because Elon Berk and Dmitry Gurovich are tough criminal defense attorneys. They pleaded my case and I received a far lesser sentencing than what all of my friends and family ever expected. Before court them and their office staff were easy to talk to and get along with. Mr. Gurovich is more than a genius and he was my lead defense lawyer. He is wonderful and I highly recommend him and the entire defense firm.

I don't know where to begin with my experience with Michele. She is just amazing! I hired her after I got pulled over for dui for not using blinker at an intersection that one was at! But anyways such a stressful time in my life considering the fact that I was only a block away from home and blew a .09. So anyways I shopped and talked to everyone around. Research around you name the person I probably called and ask for a quote with my case. All other Lawyer told me they could help me but wouldn't give me any advice unless they got some payment from me. I understand it is their job, I understand they need to make a living. But Michele was different, I told her my case and she listened, she told me different options, and results if I choose to hire her or not. I didnt feel pressured and she had such an interpersonal way of communicating with me that made me feel so comfortable. Well the result was I hired her and it was the best move I could have done. Shes the easiest person to talk to about anything and she knows her stuff. The final result well we won my DMV hearing and pending on my court case which i feel shouldn't anything to worry about. I went with Michele to my DMV hearing and saw her challenge everything being thrown at her so I feel confident that my court hearing will go smoothly. I m so confident with her that I even recommended her to my boyfriend which we liked his turn out as well with his case. No complains here, only results, compassion, and understanding.

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

I found the Omofoma Law Firm on yelp when I searched for a criminal defense lawyer for a family member. From what I hear, they were the best lawyers they had ever hired. I can't go into detail on the case, but all of the charges were dropped. When you need a solid lawyer on your side, I recommend them.

Silvia gave me the best defense I could had ever asked for. Her thoroughness, knowledge, and professionalism contributed greatly in reducing what my initial consequences her. She is an amazing attorney and I highly recommend. She helped me with my DUI, but her knowledge is expansive and not limited to DUI’s, but all traffic matters as well as general criminal defense.
