Recently I was charged with a 2nd DUI offense with an injury to 2 chp officers. I was facing a felony with a possible 3 years sentence in state prison and racking up thousands in fines. After going to more than numerous court dates, Jimmy stayed persistent and assured me he was going to do the best he could. With that being said, he was able to reduce the felony to a misdemeanor, my fees dropped to $500, and substituted jail time for house arrest. But due to my own fault in an house arrest violation, I had to go to county which I was later released within 48 hours. I am very happy to have chosen Jimmy to represent me, because even with the relentless DA on our case he was able to get a deal that was near impossible. I respect that he was thorough and very honest with me when giving advice. He treated me better than just a client and definitely took on my case with much care. Thanks again Jimmy for everything! Youre the man!Jul 22, 2015
I was being charged with a DUI with an injury. I was really on the fence about getting a lawyer due to everyone having different opinions about them when it comes to a criminal case. Not only am I glad I got a lawyer, I am glad that I chose Jimmy Cha to represent me. I have heard the horror stories others have had when it comes to lawyers, yet my experience was everything but that. Jimmy was straightforward from the get go. Never promising anything he couldnt do, and ultimately fulfilling his goal that he set from the beginning about my case. I was looking at 6 months in county jail, due to the circumstances of my case. Not only did I not spend one day in jail, I was able to complete community service instead of jail time. The relationships Jimmy has built at North Court in Fullerton allowed him to personally speak on my behave to the district attorney and the Judge about my case. That was ultimately the deciding factor to cut me the deal I got. I would personally recommend Jimmy to represent anyone who gets into trouble, and plan to work with him again to expunge this from my record.Jan 27, 2015

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?All attorneys must complete a certain amount of continuing legal education courses. I usually attend one or two DUI seminars a year, depending on how much DUI laws have changed, along with drug seminars, and any other seminars that I believe I need to educate myself on.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Make sure the attorney you are talking to is easy to get a hold of. Talk to them, see if it seems like they are trying to rush you and just take your money. Remember, if you cannot trust your attorney, no matter what he does for you, you'll never be satisfied. Ask what the attorney's legal background is and make sure he/she exclusively practices criminal defense.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?Often times, clients see us in court in front of a judge for a short period of time and think that is all we do. What clients do not see is the other 90%. In our offices, we actually read police reports, look up case law, dissect and evaluate the case, write motions, and come up with a strategy on how to handle a particular case so we will be prepared when we walk into court.
