The law office of Brooke D Eno Elia was actually recommended to me by a different lawyer in the beginning due to her knowledge and experience with my case. Brooke was able to revive a case from over 5 years and was able to have the judge expunge my case. I recall when we first talked over the phone she answered all my questions and concerns; that very day she took the time to meet with me in person to begin the process. Over the course of the process her legal assistant Rosie kept close communication with me regarding any updates bringing me a sense of calmness. Brooke drafted all the paper work needed for the District Attorney's, Court, and attended on my behalf the court hearing. Brooke impressed upon me a feeling of care and knowledge and I would recommend her services to anyone. I am positive she will continue with great success in her practice.

Up until this point I had yet to face any kind of trouble with the law, a close family member had and from that experience I knew the importance of having an attorney by my side. I am a sceptic and I didn't know were to start after reviewing profiles on AVVO I called Elia Law.
From the first call I knew then I had made the best choice Rosie was kind and friendly.
When I spoke with Brooke she listened to me with concern she answered all my questions she walked me through the process I was very pleased to know that I would not need to appear in court that she would appear on my behalf Brooke reassured me she would do all that she could to help me. Needless to say that night I slept peaceful.
Communication was excellent I knew at all times what was going on. By the second hearing Brooke had my case dismissed.
I highly recommend attorney Brooke Elia she's a genuine caring person, a professional yet down to earth.
Thank you again Brooke!

I had never gotten into trouble with the law, and I had no idea what to do when I got my DUI. I called Brooke not knowing what to do, or what to expect. I am so glad I went to Brooke Elia. Brooke was absolutely amazing. She explained everything very clearly, and fought hard for me. I originally had two misdemeanor counts associated with drinking and driving, however, she got it down to a Wet Reckless. I had just left a bar and the police officer who pulled me over was right across the street, waiting for someone to leave. I later blew a .12. She fought hard at all my hearings and gathered EVERY piece of information, and that is why she was successful in getting my DUI reduced. She fought hard for my rights and prevailed. She was very trustworthy and loyal. She is a true, genuine person, who will fight for you till the very end. I would definitely recommend Brooke to anyone who is in trouble with the law. No one will out work her, and she WILL gather ALL the evidence, and fight for you. She went above and beyond my expectations, and the cases outcome proves it. Thank you so much for fighting for me, Brooke!

I am so thankful and happy that I chose to have Brooke defend me for my DUI case. Throughout the whole process, she was so helpful and knowledgeable with everything. Brooke and her team put my mind at ease and their compassion was a blessing to me. After 9 months, my DUI charges were dropped to a 'wet and reckless' charge which was such a huge victory for me! During the process, I was always 100% sure that Brooke was defending me in an excellent manner. Her knowledge, dedication, support, and close attention to details makes her an amazing attorney. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of legal advice or support.

I had a9 year old case that I needed to get resolved. We didn't know which lawyer to hire but Brooke came recommended by my brother so I'd give it a try. Oh was I so impressed. Not only is she knowledgeable, professional, she is also very down to earth and put my mind at ease. She also kept me informed at all times regarding my case. What's even better was the outcome of my case that she was able to do. I wouldn't look anywhere else for an attorney. Thank You Brooke for everything that you did.

I am a 27 year old male that was having a hard time getting a decent job. I have made some mistakes in my younger years and was paying the price for the mistakes of my youth. I contacted Ms. Elia to have my record expunged. She was very helpful and told me I needed to acquire my records so that she could complete the papers required for the expungement. She also talked to the D.A. and was told that their were extenuating circumstances and the D.A. was going to contest the motion for expungement. This did not stop Ms. Elia. She started asking me more questions about myself. She also asked for any paperwork that might help to change the D.A.'s mind. She kept working for me until the outcome was in my favour. I am truly grateful for what she has done for me and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a lawyer. She doesn't give up!

When I came to Brooke for her professional and legal help and advice, I had about a years worth of citations (... I believe 5 citations and 1 misdemeanor)! My license had been suspended and at the time, I already had 2-3 'FTAs' with huge fines and I was looking at possible jail time for the misdemeanor (driving on a suspended D.L.) To make matters worse, I was probably one of Brooke's worst clients, if not her worst at the time! I had been in one of the worst depressions for the past 2 years and didn't even know the severity of my depression until about 3-4 months after Brooke had taken me on as a client. My illness/depression was so severe that I found it challenging to even get out of bed most days, so when Brooke needed me to assist in the defense of my own cases by either getting important information to her ASAP, returning phone calls, etc. Although Brooke almost had to drop me as a client because I was not allowing her to do her job effectively when I did not respond in a timely manner or getting the necessary docs she would need at the next hearing, per that courts request! Fortunately through this entire ordeal, I finally got the medical help and medication which has at least pointed me in the right direction..... BUT what I'm truly most thankful for and will always be grateful to Brooke for, .... IS THAT SHE DIDN'T GIVE UP ON ME & THAT SHE WAS PROFESSIONAL, YET SHE ACTUAL MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WASN'T JUST ANOTHER CASE!!! SHE TRULY MADE ME FEEL AS THOUGH I MATTERED AND THE OUTCOME OF MY CASES MATTERED!!!! Brooke & her staff always make you feel like they are on top of your case, which honestly makes you feel at ease knowing you have someone, not just anyone....but your lawyer out there watching your back and doing everything she possibly can to protect your rights!!! What more can you ask for? .... How often can you truly accredit an attorney with such virtues as honesty, loyalty & trust!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH BROOKE FOR EVERYTHING!

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 hired Brooke Elia to handle my DUI case and couldn't be happier with the outcome. She was knowledgeable throughout the entire process, and always kept me well informed. She is easy to reach, and her staff is very helpful as well. I would recommend Brooke to anybody who needs somebody on there side.

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!

I definitely recommend Brooke Elia to anyone who needs any sort of criminal defense.

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.

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

I was a very pleasent and unstreesful experience to work with.
I would highly recommend her withut any reservation.

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.
