From our very first meeting, to the final handshake, Mr. Thiagarajah demonstrated traits only found in the best attorneys. Fred exhibits a sense of confidence and made me feel comfortable despite my daunting legal situation. He is honest, trustworthy and sets realistic expectations. He follows through with everything as promised, and achieves results. Fred is responsive to phone calls and emails and makes himself available whenever you need him. He is quite organized and does an excellent job in gathering all necessary information prior to showing up in court. Fred kept me informed throughout each step in the process and explained his strategies that will be used in the courtroom. I highly recommend Fred and would hire him again without hesitation.

Working with Mr. Thiagarajah towards my son's case was a very pleasant experience. He was extremely responsive, knowledgeable and handled the case in our very best interest. He provided the best outcome possible (dismissal) in a very speedy manner. Once you hire him, you can rest assure that he will take care of your case leaving you with minimal worries or having to go through the frustrating time consuming beauracratic process.

Fred, where to start? I can not begin to explain how helpful, professional, knowledgable, and trustworthy this Lawyer is. I have experienced other lawyers, and none compare to Fred. Fred has worked with me for about a year and a half (since 2011-today). Fred is patient, willing to listen, and truly has a passion to help clients. He has kept me informed, and encourages me to call him if I am concerned about anything, have any questions, or if I need somebody to simply just talk to. I was involved in a SERIOUS crimial case and was sentenced minor jail time as well as 5 years of FORMAL probation, and later, with an oppertunity for a reduction of probation (17b motion). Fred not only helped me get through this very difficult process with encouragement, but helped me achieve relief from probation just under half of my probation time (2yr 4mo.) which is UNHEARD OF! He even swayed the judge to get my Felony charge reduced to a Misdemeanor even when I had a probation violation! Fred understands, he cares and truly has a passion to help his clients. I am one to worry, and Fred is still there today to assist me or take my call. Fred clearly is on his way to becoming a "big time" lawyer. He has experience and was also a former DA which means he knows his stuff, and can explain things to you from every possible angle. Fred knows alot of people in the legal system and how things work. Fred is a Highly respected and busy lawyer, yet he still made time to call me and take time to go over things. When I call Fred, he answers, and if for some weird reason he does not, he gets back to me right away. I would also like to thank his Assistand Deepesh Pandit, who assisted me with my motion and declaration. Fred is overall a blessing. He is FAIR and TRUTHFUL with pricing and is wiling to negotiate, he will not overcharge you or rip you off like others do. Fred is a great person who cares and will do anything to help me and others. If you are looking for a patient, honest, super knowledgable, responsive, caring and EXPERIENCED lawyer to help you or handle your case or answer any questions, Fred Thiagarajah is the right choice. Thanks Fred!!!!!!!!! :)

I cant thank Fred enough for all that he has done for me on my dui case. I was very scared not knowing what was to come my way and as soon as i called fred he broke down all possible outcomes good and bad.I had called other attorneys, but none of em seemed to have the same fire and desire as him. It was there i realized he was exactly what i needed in an attorney as he does not BS you and is straight forward. . He kept me inform on everything and was very helpful with making all the correct decisions! In the end we came up with the best solution and now I can walk around with no felony on my record.!! From myself and my family..thank you very much for all your help and will to fight for me!

Fred represented me on my DUI case. I was referred to him by a friend. After speaking with other lawyers, I went with Fred based his skills with my friends case and the confidence I felt after meeting him. This was the best thing that happened to me during this scary ordeal. With his legal advise I felt more at ease. He is very knowledgeable easy to speak to. He kept me informed and best of all, made this as easy as can be for me.

I was unfairly charged with 2 Misdeameanors: Fictional ID & MIP of Alcohol. I interviewed over 15+ lawyers from Avvo and EVERY single lawyer was very unassuring about being able to get both dismissals without it ending up on my record of some sort (alternative programs, DEJ, etc). What I wanted was a COMPLETE dismissal and after speaking to Fred, I immediately knew that this man was the right one for the job. Fred is an extremely talented lawyer and straight forward. He gave me a descriptive forecast of what he would be able to do for me and what the results would likely end up being, and delivered 100% on his promises. Although the case took some time, I was very satisfied with my results.
Long story short.. if you're looking to win, go with Fred. This is coming from a person who has very high standards on what needs to be done and precise on what I want the results to be.

After visiting a few lawyers and being told it would cost me $10,000+++ to seal my arrest record with no guarantee, I came to Fred.
He was amazing with explaining everything and paper work. after a year, he offered to only charge me for 1/2 the fee we agreed to because he said I had a less than 1 % chance of getting my records sealed.
Well, I thought my life was over, but told him to go ahead with it anyways.. and sure enough he managed to make a deal in my favor....... sealed and destroyed

I highly recommend attorney Fred Thiagarajah. When it comes to criminal matters Fred out shines them all. Speaking from personal experience, I was falsely accused by a co-worker whose allegation was that I assaulted and physically struck him when it was he who actually assaulted me. This guy actually went as far as disclosing physical marks on his body when I didn’t do it! My life immediately turned around and I was soon facing a misdemeanor crime by the local Police department. They in turn forwarded my case to the District Attorney for criminal prosecution. I was devastated.
As you can guess, I didn’t want to take any chances so I chose to use the best attorney out there. One who has the highest AVVO credential rating possible. Fred has a perfect score of 10. Read the comments section, Freds track record tells it all. He is professional, he has the necessary experience, he is extremely dedicated, he is detailed, he is aggressive, he follows through with everything he says and has excellent communication skills. Furthermore, Fred personally handled my case from the beginning to the end. That is very important to me. I was not pushed off to other staff.
In the end: Case closed! No trial, no court appearance and nothing required on my part to personally perform. I am extremely satisfied with the positive outcome concerning my case. I’m happy I decided to use Fred to represent my behalf.
If you are in need of representation and you and are facing a serious crime, look no further, you’ve found the best-choose Fred Thiagarajah. He is “The Right Lawyer.”

Amazing lawyer for my Speed contest 23109(a) case at the Harbor justice center in Newport beach. My car was initially impounded for 30 days, he got the car out in less than 10 days.
For the misdemeanor charge, he kept me in the loop on the proceedings and also helped me understand the whole process. He went to the court more than 4 times to get my charges COMPLETELY DISMISSED. He also handled my immigration side while working on the case which is something not many lawyers understand. I would HIGHLY recommend him for any criminal defense cases.
