I was arrested for a DUI in Big Bear in January. I was pulled over for a fix it ticket and taken to jail for a DUI with no previous record. To be honest I was incredibly scared. Not only was Brooke very understanding and immediately ready to defend me. But her knowledge and overall presence was very calming and reassuring. I was hoping for maybe a wet wreckless. Praying for a dry wreckless. But that wasn't enough for Brooke. She got my DUI dismissed!! No record. No AA classes. No community service. Incredible!! My DUI was reduced to a simple no seat belt ticket! I'm a Nevada resident. And never had to do anything but keep in contact with Brooke. I highly recommend her. She's absolutely affordable. Saved me thousands of dollars, and a criminal record. Thank you Brooke for your outstanding effort. My family and I applaud you!

Mrs. Elia is a great attorney. I never had to deal with an attorney before and I was really surprised with my experience. You hear horror stories about how attorneys lie and don't really care about the client. Mrs. Elia made me feel that I was her only client and she would work really hard on my behave. Do not make the mistake as many people do in judging her by how young she looks. She is very knowledgeable and knows what she is doing. I am very sure that I will never need an attorney again but, will be referring her to everyone I know. Thanks Mrs. Elia you came through and made a difference in my life!

Elia's law office is top notch, when working with a law firm you really never know what you will get until the case is over. From the get go I worked with Brooke specifically and she guided me through the entire case and she was able to get the results. I had a DUI charge that was dismissed before even having to go to trial. She took the time and effort to guide me through this scary process every step of the way, I highly recommend Brooke D Eno Elia for any of your needs.

Brooke Elia is an incredible attorney. She assured me that I was in good hands with her expertise and strong work ethic. She expunged a DUI from my record and counseled me throughout the entire legal process. If you are looking to be represented by an attorney, Brooke Elia would be your choice.

Brooke is an amazing Lawyer. She was incredibly knowledgeable and answered any questions I had. She let me know about everything every step of the way, never leaving me in the dark. She took care of everything and I didn't even have to appear once in court. She was able to get my license back and my charges reduced. Without her I would have been completely lost. I would highly recommend her to anyone. You will not be disappointed!

I couldn't have wished for a better outcome. Brooke Elia found a way to remove my DUI charges and I will forever remain thankful to her. She is also one of the nicest & most honest lawyers I have ever come across. I really felt that she was trying to help me and appreciated me as a client. She did all the work, I never had to show up for court & she kept me informed by calling me before and after every hearing. I thank her so much for what she did for me.

I received a red light camera ticket for turning right and didn't stop when the red light was on. Reading the information and the procedures sent to me I realized that I have to do traffic school and have to pay the fine for more than $500.00. I immediately called Brooke and asked if she could represent my case. She did a fantastic and excellent work and have provided me with very good guidance. I was well informed on every updated details of my case. She and her assistant responded to calls and emails quickly and they are very attentive. The result of the trial was fantastic on my behalf. I do not hesitate and highly recommend her to anybody who needs a defense lawyer.

I am very satisfied with the hard work and dedication Mrs. Elia has put forth towards my case. She always updated me every time she would work on my case and she would always provide clarification. I was pulled over for a DUI and she was able to reduce my DUI to a wet reckless. I was very relieved because she made it easier for me to follow through with my immigration status. I came in her office and her persona gives off a feeling of hope and inspiration that the case would turn out to its absolute best. She is unique in her practice in that she actually cares for her clients and the legal consequences that they have to endure. I would recommend anyone who has a DUI or any other criminal matter to contact Mrs. Elia, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

Wow, were do I start. From the start she amazed me. Back in July 2012 I got pulled over for DUI. I never gotten in trouble with the law in my life so I was scared and did not know what to do. I contacted Mrs Brooke via a postcard I received in the mail. She asked me when I was arrested, then asked if I placed a stay on my license. Which I didn't cause of course I didn't know my rights or what to do period. She explained we have 10 days after the arresting day to file a stay with the DMV so they can hold the suspension of my drivers license. At that point I was panicking as I have a job and didn't want to lose my driving privileges. I asked if she would file a stay with the DMV on our behalf. Mind you we haven't talked about attorney rates. But once we did she has reasonable rates and is flexible with payments. This was around 4 pm when we initially contacted her. And she got on the phone and faxed the information to DMV stat. From day one she has shown us compassion, dedication and commitment. She took time and explained us the process and what we are to expect from both the DMV and Criminal hearings. Mrs Brooke from day one has communicated everything in great detail. Always returned our calls in a timely manner. She and her staff were a delight and the office was family friendly. The case took about 7 months and she made all the court hearings on my behalf. I saw dedication and perseverance that I didn't expect from an attorney. I am very satisfied with the outcome and I will definitely recommend her to my family and friends. We are thankful that God placed her in our path.

Brooke is very knowledgeable and professional, she will inform you how your case will be handled and give you the best advice. She is also trustworthy, reliable and well organized. I didn’t have any concerns or problems depending on her with my case. Commination is excellent, letters will be send by mail and also phone calls will be made to inform you where the case is standing. She has my highest recommendation.

I engaged Brooke Elia to defend me in a recent DUI case. Despite a high blood alcohol level and other adverse circumstances, Ms. Elia was able to get my charge reduced to a wet reckless and avoided the loss of my driver’s license. She accomplished this by thorough review of police audio and detecting flaws in the arresting officer’s report. She is organized and responsive, and kept me well-informed of the status of my case, my options, and the implications of my decisions. I recommend her highly to anyone facing DUI charges.

Brooke Elia was incredibly helpful throughout this unfortunate process. She made it very easy on me with her knowledge and helpfulness. Brooke truly fought for me. Although it was my second offense, she was able to get the judge to sign off on the first offense plea documents, which was absolutely crucial considering I would have had to have the SCRAM device (alcohol monitor) for three months, license suspended for a lot longer, and more community service among other things; ultimately saving me tons of money and time. I am incredibly grateful for her help and highly recommend her hire for your case!

Brooke kept me informed through out the entire process & when something came up during the court hearing she took care of it immediately and my request was granted. I will and have recommended her to my friends.

Attorney Brooke Elia showed interest in our case, took care of everything immediately, kept us informed with everything that was going on. We are very happy on how she handled our case, there are few if any attorneys that really spend the time to communicate with their clients and resolve in a very professional way like Attorney Elia did.

Hired Brooke to expunge past criminal convictions and clean up record. This really helped me with my career and moving forward in my life, with my family and my peers. Now my Identity Profile is clean. I would recommend Brooke to anyone who needs help in cleaning up their record.
Posted by Jorge Rosales, a DUI client, Flag
Kept me informed on every single detail of the case. I got to keep licence and walk away with a wet wreck less out of a DUI conviction. Very dedicated individual and will fight to get the best outcome. I was very satisfied with the accommodations she made when it came to paying the fees. Overall great experience !

At a time when I thought the world was against me and I had nobody on my side, Brooke Elia really came through and made me feel safe.
I had my back againt the wall and was facing jail time. Brooke did everything it took to get me house arrest and cut my time in half.
Anytime i had a question or a concern she was always there to ansrew or make sure i knew what was going on.
Brooke definitely made me feel important and more then just another client
If anyone needs or wants a attorney who will take care of you and make you feel welcome i would recommend Brooke Elia

Ms. Elia is through, efficient and quick. She answered all of my questions in a timely manner. She took the stress out of our situation and made things happen. I will definitely use her services again and refer her to friends.

The most important item that stands out regarding Ms. Elia is before I retained her. After contacting her by phone and briefly discussing my concerns she immediatly started sending me information that assisted me greatly in defusing the situation before she was hands on involved. I knew immediatly after receiving the first communication from her that she was the perfect person for us. She is very personable and knowledgable in many areas.

Even during tough emotional times she kept me well informed and realistic of possible results
I have worked with two other lawyers in the past and both could not get rid of you fast enough, she was well informed and on top of her game on my DUI case, I personally believed she went the extra mile for me and got my arrest record destroyed. I hope never to need to ever use her again but If I do she is worth every cent.

I came to Brooke Elia with three costly and scary traffic tickets all from same officer and was too intimidated to defend myself. I was scared and faced costly bail amounts and insurance increases. Mrs. Elia put me at ease immediately and took over my cases on the spot, leaving me feeling like a weight was lifted. She kept me informed every step of the way, without letting me worry about any of it. I didn't even have to go to court! In no time at all, she had my first case dismissed! I have every confidence that the others will be handled just as well. I would recommend her to anybody looking for a no nonsense approach to solving your legal issues.
