I did not have a lot of money but needed to help settle an entry of a sister state judgment against me. I met with him a "free" 30 minute consultation. He did a really good sales job, he said that this was very easy for him to work out an arrangement with the other side and that he would drop his retainer in half because I had already done a bunch of work and that is was just a matter of an email or two and a phone call to the other side. After that initial consultation I was called and emailed daily by his assistant until I agreed to hire him. I reiterated several times to him and his assistant how much money I had. They both assured me that I would get an email when he was getting close to the end of my retainer. Well, after writing his first boiler plate letter he had used up the retainer, then proceeded to rack up twice as much billing over the next two weeks before I was told he had used up the retainer. BIGGEST WASTE OF MONEY EVER! When I finally received my first statement I noticed that he billed me a "blended rate" of $325 per hour for the phone call with his assistant to get my information before my "free" consult and all the "research" he did before the "free" consult as well. In fact, anyone working at his firm charges a blended rate of $325 no matter what they do in the office. When I sent him emails and called him to ask him about things on my bill and to inquire about the fact that they did not live up to their end of the contract by telling that my retainer was exhausted, I NEVER HEARD FROM HIM AGAIN. I only heard from his billing department saying that that was the bill. Then, even though I had circled the one time charge on my retainer credit card authorization form, he went ahead and charged my card for the balance, including a fee for using a credit card, which is illegal by the way in California. Then he charged my credit card over $250 to close out my account. I have had to go this alone now thanks to him with a lot less money to try to settle my case. Do yourself a favor and ask some other lawyers in the same area of law about him. I did . I just wish I had done it before I hired him . If you want to throw your money away then hire him. His billing is suspect and his lack of client/customer service is beyond reprehensible. I know he has some good reviews and some bad ones. Maybe he did help the people who gave him a great review or maybe they are fake, either way, if you value your money and your time, then is it worth the gamble to find out which Emahn Counts your are going to get? Again, the BIGGEST WASTE OF MONEY FOR THE MOST EXPENSIVE TWO EMAILS EVER!

I am very fortunate to find Attorney Emahn Counts, and I would like to thank Counts Law Firm, including Katie, Jennifer, and Corey, for succeeding in my case. He was able to get a cash settlement from the defendant's business to dismiss lawsuit. Collections is just one of his areas of expertise. I highly recommend Attorney Emahn Counts.

Attorney Counts was instrumental in giving me assitance with a stressful family law matter. He was caring and wise on the course to proceed on. He gave my family and I a peace of mind that was sorely needed!

I've been meaning to leave this post for a while but just getting to it. After shopping around for attorneys I went with this guy. He was the first to lay out all the options and was pragmatic and objective in his approach. I took his advice ten years ago and had a very favorable outcome. I have relied on him for counsel on several matters since. And I've seen him go up against other attorneys. This is the guy you want in your corner. Super sharp, solid, and resourceful.

Mr Counts is very knowledgable. I feel that he promises results but doesn't deliver what he says. His billing is confusing and excessive. I felt I was being overcharged, even though I never complained and paid his invoices. I don't recommended them because at the beginning he makes you believe he cares but after a couple months it was obvious that he only cares about $$. Doesn't follow up emails, doesn't give advice to strengthen Case, excessive billing and poor results.

Mr. Counts did a great job of doing what I hired him to do, which was to sue another Lawyer for Judicial Malpractice. He then went beyond that though, and got the judgement levied against me reduced by 3/4, and then settled for 1/4 less than that!
As for the Judicial malpractice case, We recovered 2/3 of the settlement amount back from the Lawyer who the Bar said I should sue, and who referred me to Mr. Counts, WITHOUT GOING TO COURT! (Plus getting all of the bills from that Lawyer either waived or refunded!)
He's honest and competent, patient and nice, and won't take your case if it's outside of his area of expertise.

I certainly appreciate your efforts in handling an issue of mine that had really stricken me to the point where
I felt powerless. You trully impressed me with listening to my story,and re-iterating that you understood.
Knowing that this matter had a serious time restraint. You certainly dedicated your heart as well as your time.
The outcome was satisfying to me. I will definitely call on you again.

My legal case was complicated!! So when I contacted Atty Counts I asked some serious questions and he answered me directly with the truth. I appreciate legal words in simple, easy, terms than anyone can understand. Thank you for everything especially for keeping the legal jargon so very simple.
