You’ll need some very specific directions to get to this particular building. If you’re going down the 101 Freeway toward Los Angeles, you’ll hit Grand Avenue or 60 West.

When you get to court, make sure you are dressed properly. Dress as though you are going to an interview – no hats, no sunglasses, no shorts, no t-shirts – look professional. When you get there, if you are on your own, you will be known as a “pro per,” and you will have to sit and wait until a prosecutor sees you. If you hire us, we actually go for you so you don’t even have to show up. The average case takes four to six months; we go to court every thirty days and attend court for you so you don’t miss work or school.

If you’re pro per, the prosecutor will just tell you to plead guilty because you have a bad case. The prosecutor won’t tell you that you have a very good case and that you should fight in court because you might win. If you hire us and there is an evidentiary hearing and you need to go to court, you will get preferential treatment because you are with a lawyer. This means that you will be preferred in the order – we get called first so we can get you in and out of court quickly. If you are pro per, you will just have to sit and wait for your name to be called alphabetically.
