Law Offices of Simon Aval
I have highest praise for Mr. Simon Aval and his staff. This experience could have been unpleasant, however, it was not. Mr. Aval was not only professional, he was caring. He answered all of our questions and took the time to explain those things we were not familiar with. He lowered my Burglary case, a felony, to a petty theft, a misdeamenor, and had the DA accept time served instead of the 16 months, county jail time I was facing. Words cant even explain my gratitude. Thank you so much.Rosa P- Paramount CA

Law Offices of Patricia Rodriguez
I hired the Patricia Rodriguez law firm 24 hours prior to a the sale of my property. The Rodriguez Law Firm promised to help me save my home from the foreclosure sale. I paid a set monthly payment for several months in exchange the law firm's verbal promises to help save our home. The Rodriguez Law firm filed poorly constructed complaints to the Los Angeles Superior Courts and offered no real help or relief from the foreclosure of our property. I have asked many times for my money back, I have been told they were paid fairly for work completed. The Patricia Rodriguez Law Firm stole my money and did absolutely nothing to help our family save our home. We hired another attorney who was able to help us in the end. The Patricia Rodriguez Law Offices stole over $16,750 from me and my children.

Regarding the negative review of William P, I do not know this man and never represented him as he's stated here. Furthermore, he has slandered me by stating accusations bordering on criminal acts. I demand that this statement be removed immediately! Furthermore, I had no idea this site was put up on the web and note that the information contained on this site is incorrect such as my location and phone number. Just like the incorrect information on this site, perhaps this guy has the wrong person. I have practiced law for over 30 years and pride myself on having a good reputation. Please correct this website or totally remove it!
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
