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.

Bradley Sandler was responsive and very helpful to my request for legal help. His office did not specialize in the type of law I needed but he pointed me in the right direction. Mr. Sandler gave me more information in one thumbtack message than I have been able to get from reaching out to 20 lawyers from yelp, websites, phone book, etc. Hopefully I won't need his offices help in the future, but if end up needing a Family, Criminal, or Business Lawyer, Mr. Sandler will be the first one I reach out to.

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.

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.

David Gammill is an outstanding, seasoned and knowledgeable Attorney. What you see in his bio and webpage is exactly what you get. I hired Gammill for a criminal defense matter. He was very candid and always answered all my questions in a way that made them understandable. Prior to my court date I had additional questions and without hesitation he answered them all promptly. He was able to get me a better outcome that I had even hoped for. Highly recommend him.

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.

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 goes above and beyond to ensure I understand the process of everything. The service and attention Heidi provides is incomparable. She always answers all my questions and advises me of my options. 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!

My family and I are pleased with the decision to hire Arvand Naderi as my brother’s defense attorney. We immediately felt a sense of ease upon speaking to him. We knew we would be in good hands. Confident, knowledgeable, tenacious, honest and ethical are all qualities you look to find in a great attorney. Mr Naderi has all these qualities and much more. Not to mention he has a great reputation in the courts and is well liked. My brother was facing many years in prison, but Mr Naderi got him the best possible outcome. We are very satisfied on how he handled my brother’s case and brought our family at ease. Arvand answered all of our questions throughout the process which in return provided us a peace of mind during a very stressful time. Hiring Mr Naderi as my brother’s defense attorney proved to be the right choice. I highly recommend him to anyone whose looking for a criminal defense attorney.

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!

I was leaving the bar in Hermosa Beach and as soon as I pulled put the parking lot I was immediately pulled over and the police office claimed I was driving reackless and wanted me to come out of my vehicle. My cousin and I asked him how could I have been driving reckless if I just pulled out the parking lot. He didn't answer and just asked me to get out the car and take a sobriety test and the breathalyzer and was put in jail over night and my company car was impounded. Because my company car was impounded I lost my corporate job and I was charged with a dui. Literally a collateral damage began as I wasn't able to even keep my apartment in Redondo Beach so I lost everything. After losing everything I've worked so hard for I reached out to Nicole, the attorney at the Gutteriez Law Office in Torrance ca, and she was absolutely amazing. She wasn't just knowledgeable about the law, but was extremely empathetic towards NY entire situation. She maid me feel really comfortable about speaking about everything that transpired without feeling embarrassed or ashamed. Nicole was able to get me a miracle deal at the arraignment phase without having even received the discovery packet until that morning from the prosecution and got it reduced to exhibition of speed, probation, and a 12 hour class. No DUI on record, doesn't count as a prior no insurance hike, no jail, no thousands in fees, no four month AA class instead just three. Even the public defender was shocked by Nicole's outstanding performance at the arraignment. I just want anyone with any type of criminal issues to know that if you go through the Gutteriez Law office you have a worrier in the law that's on your side out of Nicole. Thanks to Nicole I've started to feel as if I'm starting to get my life back. Nicole is definitely an attorney that cares about the clients she represents.

    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.

    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.

    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.
