I thank Chris for all of his help and guidance. My family thanks him as well. He’s a great lawyer and I’ve dealt with a handful not counting public defenders. Every other lawyer I spoke to I can hear and feel that they knew that I was in a s@@ty situation and that they saw me as a s@@ty person just like the courts. I couldn’t tell the difference between these lawyers and the prosecutors. I want to point out that he’s very respectful and very hands on almost with daily updates but that’s not even a sugar coat on how I can express myself about his effective way of working. Thank you for hearing me out and actually giving me a chance to show you what I was about, which is my family. Thank you for the respect that you showed my family and actually giving us hope that things would turn out ok. Great lawyer

Vanessa did the work as promised and in a timely manner. We eventually needed legal representation and when we turned copies of the documents over to the attorney, even he was impressed with her work! Much appreciation for your work and time spent on the project. 👍

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 was referred to the lawyers at Pondeva & Sohrab for my divorce case from a colleague. After it was all said and done I can say they definitely exceeded my expectations - very knowledgable, always available when I needed to talk or set up an appointment. They worked hard till the very end of my case.

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 is one of the best attorneys I have ever hired. Aside from being an expert in the field of family law, he is a kind and respectful man and is a pleasure to talk to. I would recommend Mr. Fierro to anyone who needs help in Family Law and who wants positive results.

My experience with Attorney Rosenfeld has been an overall positive one, both in and out of the courtroom. I am a US Army veteran and a financially struggling student at my local community college. Although Attorney Rosenfeld’s services were a higher cost than another attorney I was considering, I decided to have him represent me in my case due to his straightforwardness. Prior to appearing in court, he also displayed an extensive knowledge handling DUI cases during our correspondence. Throughout my experience, he worked extensively with me to renegotiate prices on services I could not afford, which would have made the process all the more difficult without. He kept in touch often and I was left with the impression that he cared to keep his client’s well-informed. He was also willing to clarify any misunderstanding promptly and efficiently. Attorney Rosenfeld was also very timely and incredibly informative when I had to appear in court. He was well known by those working for the court, and I had been told on more than one occasion that I had made the right choice in choosing him to defend me. Overall, I am remain confident I made the right decision in choosing him to defend me and would highly recommend his services.

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 was searching on Google for an immigration attorney in the Los Angeles area. After reviewing and calling 25 attorneys ranging from Woodland Hills to Anaheim California, I called Andrew Park and I could tell from the questions I asked and his responses, that he was courteous and a professional. I had a good instinct about him and I thought it's someone I want to work with. My instinct was right as he proved to be extremely professional, courteous and most importantly a person with INTEGRITY which is rare now days. I am writing this review because I feel he is someone who deserves recognition for his ethical character and work ethic. If anyone has any questions, please contact me at pezion@hotmail.com and I can talk with you further.

Mr. Deller was the first attorney to see on my list. After meeting with him, I knew he was the one I needed to help me with my case. He was honest and straight forward with his fees and he made me feel confident that he was the attorney for me. The staff made me feel welcome and they were all so friendly.

I retained the legal services of Justin Rodriguez and Emmanuel to help me with two of my cases last year. One case was a misdemeanor-public intoxication charge, they resolved this case for me by dismissing the charge and not having me pay any court fines. My second case was a lot more complex, it involved detectives trying to create a sexual assault case against me out of baseless information. For months the detectives swore they had a case against me, Emmanuel and his office would talk to the detective and would advise me afterwards about the situation. It became clear months later that the detective would try rogue tactics to try and go around my hired attorneys. I was advised by Emmanuel to move out of my apartment where I lived because it seemed to Emmanuel that the landlord was calling the police on me for strange reasons. Slightly surprised to see the police at my door one morning for hours claiming they would break into my apartment based on a false warrant and false charges. I would talk/text to Emmanuel about the situation as the police wanted to break into my place. The landlord opened the door with his key to my apartment and I was arrested and released with no charges the next day. I did as Emmanuel said to do and not tell the police or detective any information about anything. The detective had no case against me and the police needed to break the law on false charges to come and try to get me to talk to them. All this drama from the police and detective is now in the past and I'm glad I had Emmanuel there to advise me as things got crazy and a bit out of control with the police at my door. I would highly recommend the legal service of their law firm if you are in need of a great attorney to get you out of a complex legal situation.

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 highly recommend Ese Omofoma to anyone who needs an attorney, and/or legal advice. He was courteous, caring/understanding about my tough cases/situation, able to set up a payment plan for me to pay for my legal fees to him, and 100% there for me when I needed to speak to him, or had any questions about my cases. He was able to work out an amazing deal with the DA (dismissal of 1st time offenses that included domestic violence, driving on a suspended license, resisting arrest, and assault/battery-in exchange for me attending AA 2x a week for 90 days). He also got my warrants squashed in entirety. I not only have a clean record once again, but I learned so much in the process of everything. I cannot thank Ese enough for helping me improve my life.

Mr. Ali and his staff really care about the clients. It's nice to know that someone has your back when you're going through a tough and stressful time in your life. Mr. Ali and his staff are also great about making your family feel welcome and make them feel at ease. I was referred to Mr. Ali when I my husband was in the process of being deported. Mr. Ali not only worked on our immigration case but also our criminal matter. When I really thought there was nothing we could do, I was relieved when Mr. Ali informed me that he was able to keep my husband from being deported and also kept him from going to jail.

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.

I was falsely accused of Battery on a female and a (technically true) Retraining Order Violation and subsequent Probation Violation by my ex-wife. I had initially retained another lawyer, and quickly realized that she wasn't going to be able to help someone suffering from the degree of manipulation I was dealing with. In a previous episode with the same woman, I lost custody of three children for having admittedly poured about 2 or 3 ounces of beer on her hair. In that instance I was arrested for Domestic Violence and made the horrendous mistake of talking to the police ( I had NO idea it was illegal) and pleading guilty. The loss of custody emotionally and financially devastated me and I was in the process of losing my house, job and security clearance (along with my dignity and self respect for a period of time) as a direct result. My now Ex-wife wanted to reconcile and I eventually gave that a chance. When I saw it going wrong (She wants a child of her own, and mine are not welcome in "her" house) I asked her to go back to her apartment and life, so she lied (AGAIN) and had me arrested falsely claiming I kicked and hit her. When I met Ray Dinari I was in court firing my previous attorney and asking for a PD. The judge essentially insisted that I speak to his Panel Attorney Ray, and that was the best thing that's happened to me since my nightmare began. In a matter of days, the Battery charge was dropped before I even got to court, Ray had followed up very thoroughly with the investigator and prosecutor, and the probation violation and restraining order violation penalties had been reduced from 20 days of Cal Trans and two convictions to one minor infraction and my original probation will soon be dropped and original conviction expunged! I have now regained my dignity and self-respect, a fighting chance to regain my security clearance, keep my job and home, and regain custody of my children! My life may not be completely restored, but I'm far better off than I could ever have imagined. After many bad experiences in custody court I had become very, very bitterly discouraged with many aspects of our legal system, Ray's integrity, honesty and effectiveness has restored a tremendous amount of faith in our legal system for me.

About

My work stands out from others because I offer personalized attention to each of my clients. Most firms either take way too many clients to offer that kind of attention or once the big name attorney has landed the client he is shifted to a less experienced attorney or the person who happens to be available when the client calls.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
