I was pulled over for a DUI in November '13. I waited up until the day before my court date to get representation from the Hedding Law Firm. Not only did he accept to represent me, he did it without taking full payment on the quoted price. (He let me pay the remainder of the balance a few weeks later) For it being my first run in with the law and my first experience hiring a lawyer, I was a little nervous about the whole thing, given all the horror stories about terrible lawyers.. I never thought I would be so at ease about the whole process. I was always informed what was going on either via mail or phone call. At no point did I feel Mr. Hedding was lying or telling me what I wanted to hear.. He was honest and straight to the point. I couldn't be happier with the whole experience. Oh and did I forget to mention that he got my DUI arrest down to an exhibition of speed ticket!!!!
Hedding Law Firm met and or exceeded all my expectations ....I had the priviledge of working with Mr. Ron W.Hedding Sr.
Not only did we win our case but he was very detailed and professional ...Always available and present during my stressful experience, I felt a sense of comfort in the court room and really appreciated his genuine support ! Highly recommend this law firm and especially Mr. Ron W. Sr...
The Hedding Law Firm exceeded our expectations. Our court dates were continually postponed and we were required to appear multiple times, they always had a representative with us until a satisfactory Judgement was reached.
I highly recommend Hedding Law firm. Ron Sr. handled my boyfriend's and mine's DUI cases exceptionally well. He managed to get both our DUI charges reduced to exhibition of speed with 2 years probation, as well as getting the chargers expunged after probation is served. Ron maintained great communication throughout the whole process, and kept us informed every step of the way. He also has great connections with the Van Nuys courthouse. We could not be more satisfied with his level of work to get the best sentencing given our circumstances.
Ronald William Hedding I believe is one of the most qualified, knowledgeable and caring lawyers. Mr. Hedding went out of his way to make sure my case was resolved fairly and promptly. I highly recommend the Headding law firm!!!!!!!!
Excellent attorney! Mr. Hedding did a great job handling my case. He is very punctual and responsive, always returned my calls and kept me informed of any developments in my case.
I met initially with Ron Hedding, Jr (the son of this attorney) and agreed to sign a retainer agreement following that meeting. Afterwards, this attorney was placed on my case. I tried to contact him regarding concerns with my case--including a conspicuous problem with the police report--and he never returned my calls. He also ignored emails consistently.
He failed to recognize my needs as a client, telling me to pay fines I couldn't afford rather than take community service (I had to borrow money just to pay for his retainer agreement). When I told him I needed to do community service instead of court fines, he did not take it into consideration when he was advising me about the scheduling of my court date and DMV hearing, which made it extraordinarily difficult to get to my community service.
I didn't expect to "get off"--I'm not bitter because I didn't get the desired result in my case. But I also didn't expect my attorney to not return calls or emails or address any of my concerns. All he did was delay the court dates--which was of no benefit to me--and take a first offender plea deal that I could have gotten on my own. I am an attorney myself now and, if I treated a client the way that Hedding Law treated me, I would fully expect to be fired and sued.
