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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 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

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.

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.

    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.
