Currently, we are heavily booked and have limited availability. Priority will be given to criminal matters, including felony and misdemeanor cases (for example: DUI, reckless driving, suspended license, drugs, theft,  warrants, probation violation).

However, for infraction traffic tickets, legal consultations will be provided within five days. Thank you for your patience. 

We look forward to serving you.     

Traffic Ticket Court

We defend your California Drivers License against the DMV. We fight your DUI in criminal court. Don't let them put you in jail. Don't let the police and DMV take away your driver's license.

DUIs are unexpected so turn it around and take charge by defending your rights. We take immediate action for you with the DMV and defend you in criminal court. 

We fight DUIs throughout Los Angeles County, e.g., Long Beach, Compton Court, Torrance Court, Downtown Los Angeles Courts, and in Orange County California Courts.

​We defend our clients accused of felony evasion, fraud, driving under the influence, theft, suspended license, hit and run, reckless driving, battery, drug possession, drunk in public, driving without a license, disturbing the peace, trespass, ...

We clear warrants and resolve probation violations with the primary goal of keeping you out of jail. We have a very high success rate, by using our masterful negotiation skills and presentation to the court, of keeping you out of court and resolving your case favorably.

We recall warrants and resolve probation violations in Los Angeles and Orange County and surrounding areas in Southern California.
