I have used several attorneys over the years. I found Ms. Mattern to be the best one I have had. I would recommend her to anyone who needs the best defense attorney. She is very understanding and very good at communicating your options to you. She fought extremely hard for me and made sure I got the best possible results. If needed, I would use Ms. Mattern's services again.

I have known Lisa for many years and she is a wonderful friend. I never expected to need the services of a criminal defense attorney but when the time came that I did, she was there for me. She handled all aspects of the issue quickly and efficiently, provided me with a very realistic perspective and guidance and kept me apprised of things on a regular basis until she was able to resolve everything to my satisfaction. It was great that she handled things in such a supportive manner. That certainly made all the difference in the world to me.
I strongly recommend Lisa to anyone in need of an attorney, especially if they want to get results quickly and get their life back in order and not get dragged through the system unnecessarily.

My husband and I would like to thank Lisa Mattern, Margaret, and Kaitlin for all of the wonderful emotional support. My husband had a warrant for many years that was not cleared and taken care of. In addition, he had many restless nights and was 'in the dark' unable to enjoy life to the fullest. He felt as if life had no meaning.
I am more than ecstatic on the day that I called the San Fernando Valley Bar and was recommended to contact Lisa Mattern for criminal attorney services. I made an appointment and was very impressed on the day of consultation. She definitely educated my husband and was very patient with answering all of my questions. She definitely shed some light as my husband and I felt 'in the dark' with regard to court/legality issues.
I must say that my husband and I are very impressed with Lisa's follow up via phone and e-mails and the constant status update on the case. Everytime we contact the firm, we are always connected to either Lisa or Margaret directly, which is rare elsewhere! My husband and I felt really appreciated and cared for.
This process has been real rough on my husband and family on the other hand, Lisa brought ease to our anxiety and worked real hard to help us.
On the day of court! Warrant recalled and my husband just needs to complete dv classes. My husband and I felt as if this massive weight was released from our chest and was able to breathe.
Again, Lisa has been real helpful and gave more than 110% of wonderful services. She is professional, exceptional, and definitely knows what she is doing! My husband and i have good faith in Lisa.
She is the best attorney that I know and highly recommend her to everyone!

From the initial consultation five months ago and at each contact after Lisa Mattern explained the process and my options relating to my case.. She called me before and after each hearing and followed up with a letter letting me know what happened in court or giving me the latest offer from the City Attorney. Thanks to her years of experience and excellent representation I only had to appear at one out of five hearings and the case will be dismissed at the next and fifth hearing.. Having worked for attorneys in the past I know how to recognize a great lawyer. I would not hesitate to recommends Lisa Mattern to anyone in need of legal help. Her law partner is Margaret Mendoza who also has many years of experience. They work well together and are familiar with each others cases and can fill in for each other if either necessary. I felt a strong connection to both women and believe no other attorney could have resolved my matter as quickly or successfully. From the onset you know Lisa Mattern and Margaret Mendoza genuinely care about their clients and have the knowledge and experience to help them.
