Sobel Ross Howell
Let me start off by saying its important to read/write reviews because thats why I called Ross and when we spoke the reviews were right, he is one of the best lawyer I hired for my mother's DUI refusal and this is why. Before I met Ross, a year earlier I got my first DUI case and went with a different lawyer. my lawyer talk the talk but was no help AT ALL and didnt know crap and just wanted my money. when i started doing my comm. service and classes, I started telling people my DUI story. they gave me some information that my lawyer didnt tell me before accepting my deal. I felt ripped off. SO when my mom was being charged with a DUI refusal, I wanted to help her pick a good lawyer. when I went through all the letter/flyer law firm had mailed to her home, I came across Ross letter. When we spoke he was upfront about my mother's case. he was honest and told me what i should expect for a dui refusal. He has a good connection at the courts, very friendly, reasonable fees and will work out a payment plan if you are not able to pay in full. I felt very confident about him so i hired him. At the end of it all, he got the refusal charge dropped to a first DUI charge 3 month classes, 11 days comm. service and most important NO Dirver License suspension. As for the DMV part even though i hired him after the 10 day mark for DMV hearing, my mom and i told him how important it was for her to keep her DL and not get it suspended for one year. He fought for my mom DL and WON the DMV hearing! HE MADE THIS STRESSFUL, EMBARRASSING SITUATION A VERY EASY PROCESS. I really appreciate and thank him for everything he has done..He is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! You're the best ROSS!

I was arrested back in April, by young CHP, out for blood, looking to By the time I returned home their were 15 or 20 letters from attorneys in my mailbox. With a breathalyzer result .09/.09 I knew it would take some legal gymnastics to get this reduced, but I was so close to the line that it was possible, but this would be my 2nd DUI within 10 years. All the websites said it was an impossible feat the get a 2nd DUI reduced in California, of all states!!! I didn't give up and goggle'd, yelp'd and avvo'd every attorney letter in the mailbox and dwindled them down to 3. I choose Mr. Sobel because he, didn't promise me the world in court, which I was good, as I know to never go with the attorney that does. He was incredibly specific about the all the players that would be involved at my particular court, Metropolitan, He even said that it was his favorite court and literally rattled off about 10 names from judges and city prosecutors to cashiers and clerks. Most importantly he said straight out that he would work with me on the fees, but that stood firm on the fees because of his proven record, especially in this court. Mr. Sobel had a game plan that made since, no of this getting off on a technicality myths you read about, but showing my character along with his reputation to come to a compromise, if possible, but I tell you he made it work. Sobel took a 2nd DUI within 10 years and come out of court with a Wet Reckless, with less fines, less alcohol classes and most importantly NO JAIL TIME! Do yourself a favor and call him, listen to him, if he says he can help you, hire him. Ross Howell Sobel has the reputation and skill you need on your side.

I recently received a DUI and I have never been so scared in my life. In the next couple of days after receiving the DUI, I got so many letters from lawyers who had gotten my info from public records. After doing my research and all of them, I came across Ross Howell Sobel's information gave him a phone call. Within speaking to him for just a couple of minutes I knew he should be my lawyer because not only was he intelligent, knowledgeable, and honest, but the one thing that set him apart from the other lawyers was that he cared a great deal about what happened to you and your case. He makes it clear that he is there for you no matter what. And boy did he deliver. I blew a .10 in the field and then a .09 at the station and after examining all the facts of the case he eventually got my charges dropped down to public intoxt. Nothing to do with a DUI!!! Got it totally dismissed, got me little to nothing fines, and out of taking alcohol classes and no breathalyzer for your car!!! He is good at what he does and most of all holds your hand the entire way through it. Please believe me when I tell you that you will be faced with hundreds of options for lawyers during this tough time, but you would be an idiot not to choose Ross Howell Sobel.

Franklin Stanley Attorney
I am so happy I picked Josh Franklin to represent me for my accident. I have been in other accidents before and have been scammed by almost every attorney I ever dealt with. Josh is the real deal. I was alone in the car and was hit by a car with 3 passengers in it. It was clearly the other parties fault BUT there were no witnesses or video cameras and therefore it was my word against 4. My business attorney recommended Josh Franklin as the best traffic and personal injury firm for this case. I must say that Joshs advice and proficiency in court were the reason I received such a large settlement. He Fought for me so hard that I felt that he took this case personally. His team is so professional and courteous and dont make me feel like they are doing me a favor ( if youve been to a lawyer before, you know what im talking about)!. Thanks Josh and Team!

She may be not even be able to read my lease agreement.about the dogs when I lease the apt I paid the deposit for 250 for each dogs she does not know anything about it and accusing me for eviction reason. Why are you side of the bully aggressive woman. I don't want to fight. I established my case with LA housing department before that's why Beaumont company resigned as property management company. Gary cliff had to quit and EGL new management came in after the law suit. I would just say it wasting time for you to involve this matter

Aizman Law Firm
As this was my first time being arrested, I had a lot of questions. Diana was fantastic when it came to responding and answering my questions. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable, she was also great when it came to making herself available for phone calls and immediately responding to emails. Hopefully you won't need her but if you do, I would highly recommend her.

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.
