We paid $3500 up front to have our son represented by this firm. I know now that this was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made in my life. The firm was more than happy to take my money, and in turn they vowed to give the best legal representation possible. More than nine months after receiving their fees, they appeared to be very proud of their work on his case. I do understand attorney-client privilege, but the only purpose we served in this whole scenario was to pay the bill. We made it very clear in the beginning that we wished to be involved during the process, but the our involvement was done after paying the bill. A plea bargain on a misdemeanor ended up costing my son $878 in fines and three years probation? The state of California now has secured the right, through the court, to search residence, person and property upon the request of a peace officer for the duration of this probation period.. Needless to say, I can not allow my son to live at my residence for the next three years as I wil not be subjected to any kind of unwarranted search any officer wishes to engage in. I would think that any law firm in California would have been capable of handling this more proficiently than this firm did. A call to the office when we received filing papers from the court got no response. In fact, several calls were placed to the office, all without any reply at all. Bottom line, this law firm is extremely good at taking cash, but might just fall short when it comes to solid legal representation. Run as fast as you can away from this firm, as there is a very good chance your expectations might not be met. If someone was to ask my opinion of their results...it would not be the most positive experience to say the least.
