The Law Offices of Virgina L. Landry is the best. They got me out of jail on what's called the "ScramX" program, which is basically home confinement plus alcohol monitoring, which I believe is going to save my life. I'm 25 years old and got my third D.U.I. From the moment I retained their services, they made me feel comfortable and confident that everything was going to be all right. Given my circumstances this was a massive feat. They answered all my collect calls from jail and went above and beyond what I expected. In the courtroom they fought as hard as they had to to get the best deal for me and they succeeded in doing so. I would still be sitting in jail for a long long time if it weren't for them. My gratitude to them is never ending. Thank you so much.
I contacted many lawyers during my initial research. My issue was a regulatory DMV matter, with which I got responses ranging from no return-calls to quick hang-ups. When I called Virginia Landry, she treated me like I was the most important call of the day. She listened carefully and respectfully, and then gave her straight forward opinion and input on my case. Her knowledge was very impressive and hit on all the points that I was concerned with. I highly recommend calling her.
In late October of 2010 I was pulled over and arrested for a DUI with a BAC of .17 in LA county, around the South Bay. I had also been accused of speeding and swerving beyond the standard DUI codes. Naturally I was terrified and completely overwhelmed by the situation. I did my due diligence and researched several lawyers in both LA and OC who I met with and discussed my case. They all were successful attorneys and very expensive, but something about them didn't feel like a right fit. Finally a friend recommended Virginia's office. He had acquired a DUI charge when he was young and then some time later was pulled over again with another DUI. Unfortunately he obtained a 3rd DUI while the 2nd was still open which you can imagine is an extremely serious situation. Virginia's skill and savvy resulted in absolutely no jail time for my friend and a very agreeable resolution to a series of events that could have ruined his life forever and had long reaching consequences preventing him from having the success he enjoys today. After hearing that experience I called Virginia and related my turn of events. She spent time thoroughly answering my questions and letting me know that due to the speeding element I stood to have an additional "enhancement" added to my list of charges which entailed jail time (which the other lawyers had mentioned but had not gone into the same detail over), which was especially unnerving as I already had been charged with a BAC over 2x the legal limit. This obviously alarmed me; however Virginia assured me she would do everything to ensure I was taken care of and she did not disappoint. I did not have to show up to any court dates, both my DMV hearing and my court case in LA were entirely taken care of and I received a standard DUI, without any enhancements, only 3 months of DUI classes and a restricted license with the addition of a Ignition Interlock device. The matter remained private, no one in my family or at work found out about the incident as Virginia's office made the process as painless as possible, consequently I didn't have to miss a day of work and had the security of knowing I was in good hands. I must also mention that Virginia's paralegal Lorena Hughes was such a patient and helpful member of her team and the support she provided was an incredible help. She constantly kept in contact, helped assuage my concerns at every point of the case, worked with me to ensure all my documents were taken care and even continued following up a year later to ensure that my fines/fees were all applied and resolved properly. I can confidently say that if you choose Virginia's legal office you will be more than satisfied with the results of the verdict and the quality of service provided along the way. This is especially true if you are being charged with a BAC of .16 or higher and have other elements of your case that carry severe penalties in addition to what is faced with a standard DUI. I have recommended her to several friends and hope whoever is reading this will consider my positive experience with her office as a reason to pick Virginia's office to represent them.
Outstanding professional service and genuine care is what the staff of Virginal Landryâ€™s office specialize in. My experience has been extremely pleasant and everyone on her staff is to be commended for their dedication to their clients. A special thanks is extended to Suzie, for all her compassion and concern during our stressful time with my sonsâ€™ dui.
