My very close friend Cesar has been going through some legal issues lately an I've watched him damn near rip his hair out the last few months. With help from Troy Slaten he is more at ease. If I ever got into some legal troubles I would definitely call Troy @ FS&K.
Trust me it's well worth it!
Troy Slaten has helped me in a couple cases. His overall knowledge of the law is admirable to say the least. He always manages to get my charges dropped to the minimal amount and keeps my case from going to trial. Troy is ALWAYS there to answer my calls and communicate to me what is going on with my cases. The way Troy enters a court room and makes it his own; even in a random city, leaves me speechless. He is a truly personable individual
Troy has helped me multiple time's and has the most unbelievable knowledge of the legal system. I'm a foreigner so it's often hard to understand the changing daily laws..I think he's got a photographic memory. I've been seeking advice from Troy for over 3 years and he has always been super prompt and reliable. He got my case dismissed and has often answered question's over the years I have about other things. I have recommended several other friends and he has also had their cases dismissed.
Troy was recommended to me by a friend that works in the legal system, he's super nice and friendly, knows the people in the courts and about every court in LA and what their laws are. Super good value for money too, I rang several others but no one had the obvious charm/intelligence or knowledge of the legal system....it's obvious why he works magic in the court room. I also rang a lawyer that represents a major celebrity and he even recommended Troy - for the price and knowledge no one is better.
I was pretty much in a bind and luckily my Dads boss knew troy he owed her a favor. Now i was thinking that while it's great to have a lawyer, i had a strong sense that he was simply going to go through the motions and barely back me up. Like i said he represented me out of a favor, so it was free.
Well as it turns out he fought for me very intensely. I can understand what Marshel is talking about now from How I Met Your Mother. It's great to lawyer up and Troy is an amazing guy. You get the sense that this guy does his job because it's his calling, not because of the status associated with being a lawyer.
Anyways due to my problems being erased that is Troy is a legend
If not for one item at the very end of working with Troy, this review would have been another glowing testimonial. We hired Troy for the criminal portion of a DUI charge when we realized that our initial attorney was not good in front of a judge. Troy was bright, knowledgeable, articulate, and we were very pleased with his representation. Unlike the previous person, he worked with us leveraging both blood testing and an investigator which allowed us to get all alcohol related charges dropped. We opted not to go to trial to fight the one remaining issue of reckless driving, and as he would not be spending time in court, Troy offered to send a request off to the DMV to correct their records as well. After not hearing anything, I reached out to Troy via email and he replied that he had not yet heard back from the DMV. More time passed, and I asked to get a copy of the letter he had sent, so that we would have a basis to follow up. He responded that he would send us a copy of the letter he had sent when he got back in town. That never happened, and he just stopped responding to my follow-up emails. I got no response at all back for an extended period of time until I copied the Senior partner on a subsequent request. At that point, Troy did send a reply but never admitted to having committed to us to contact the DMV. That was despite the fact that my communication included his emails in which he indicated that he had already done so! The problem for us was that we trusted that he had taken the action, so bottom line, nothing got done. We would have been much better off had he just been truthful in admitting that he had not, and didn't intend to contact the DMV on our behalf. We would have known then, to pursue other avenues. This, unfortunately, speaks to the critical issue of trust.
Troy provided exceptional support during a very stressful time. He intimately understood the details and processes related to the case and put me at ease. This allowed me to focus on what I needed to do. I HIGHLY recommend him and will continue to refer friends and family to his firm.
I was charged with a dui after having a prior. Troy aggressively represented me at the dmv hearing and effectively cross examined the cop exposing many inconsistencies in his report. He came up with the idea of creating a transcript from the dmv hearing which we gave to the prosecuting attorney so he could see the flaws with the case were it to go to trial. As a result we were able to negotiate a wet reckless instead of a dui. I will never drink and drive again but if it happened to you I would not hesitate to call Troy Slaten!
My experiences as Troy Slaten's client has been all positive! The process of my minor incident was handled seamlessly. The whole time I was at ease as he handled my case. I would personally recommend Troy to all family and friends in the future! Thank you Troy!
Troy beat two unbeatable traffic tickets for me. I would not even have thought of challenging these tickets except that a friend strongly suggested that I talk to Troy before paying up. Faced with DMV points on my license for at least one of them; I talked to Troy. A few months later, cases dismissed, both cases. No points on my license and LASC will be mailing to me a refund check for the bail I posted. Troy really knew what he was doing and kept me informed all the way through. He is a caring, competent lawyer, and I highly recommend him.
Troy works hard, knows what he is doing, and keeps his clients informed. He is a caring, competent lawyer, and I recommend him without reservation.
