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 Emahn Counts is an outstanding attorney and has obtained fantastic results for my case. He is smart, ethical, and a top-notch lawyer. He gives his clients his all, gets great results, and is well respected. I highly recommend Attorney Emahn Counts to anyone who needs an attorney in the Southern California region. "He is my hero!"
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.
This is an attorney with new vision on legal system,know him for many years to be the best.
Worst experience every! I found this law firm through the yellow pages and I decided to go in for a free consultation in which I was wrongly informed. He showed up late to our appointment and told me I needed to pay him the retainer fee before he could help me. After going home and speaking to a few people I found out that I could take care of the situation myself and didn't really need a lawyer. I tried to get my money back but was unable to because he told me that he didn't give any refunds. I even went into the office thinking that I would be able to speak to someone in charge but I found out that Emahn Counts only rents a single office and that he doesn't work with anyone in that Pasadena location. I even had the receptionist call him but he refused to answer my phone call telling her that I was no longer a client of his. So long story short I didn't receive any services from him and wasn't able to get my retainer back. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone!
