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.

Sharen Ghatan is an AMAZING attorney! I am beyond blessed to have been able to have her represent me. I recently had some trouble with the law and Mrs. Ghatan was able to reassure me that I had nothing to worry about and made me feel less nervous about the entire situation. She was able to work out a better deal for me that what I had expected. She was able to reduce a felony to a misdemeanor and dismiss another charge completely. No jail time, no fines or restitution and cut probation by more than half! She is truly amazing and very knowledgeable especially with her advise. Her and her staff are great at communication and keeping you up to date on your case. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a criminal defense lawyer, dui etc.; Sharen Ghatan cares about the best for her clients and will fight for you! Thank you to Sharen and entire staff for all your hard work!!

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.

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.

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 couldn’t 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 --------
