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.

Amazing criminal defense attorney who fought for me and really showed caring for my case and ME as a human being! I was wrongly charged with a spousal battery misdemeanor and Ms. Gottesman kept me updated on every update, even on weekends and evenings. In addition, Ann doesn't act like she is in a rush to get off the phone or impatient. She always had time for me even when I had a lot of questions! Ann is a lawyer with a good heart and she is a lawyer because she wants to help people--not because she wants money. That is why I call Ann Gottesman a "gem" of a lawyer. I doubt there are many like her. SHe was respected in court (my case was in West Covina) and in the end she got my domestic violence charges dismissed on the day of trial. Thank you Ann for saving my reputation and my job!

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.

Mr Youngquist has gone far beyond our expectations. Dealing with any criminal charge is difficult but Mr Youngquist made us feel so comfortable in light of the seriousness of the situation. He responded to any and all questions that we had in a very timely manner. Charged a very reasonable amount. He treated my son with consideration and let him retain his dignity. What defense attorney takes the time to visit an inmate for Christmas? Mr Youngquist does. Cannot say enough...reasonable, fair, brilliant and companionate.

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.

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.

THE BEST ATTORNEY YOU WILL FIND!!!!! Heidi is SUCH an amazing attorney that treats me like I'm her most important client. I have had several family law attorneys, it is VERY VERY hard to find one like Heidi. I highly recommend Heidi she is such an outstanding attorney.

She is always there when you need her. She's not only honest but she truly cares, I love her, and can’t thank her enough for all the hard work and attention she does for me!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thank you and the very best to you. Sincerely, Michael --------
