    • I recommend Zachary Mccready.

    Zack did a stellar job defending my two DUI's. My sister, who is an attorney, read his flyer for DUI defense, which was one of hundreds sent to my house. She felt he had the best flyer regarding flat fees, experience, and familiarity with DUI laws. Though i had appointments with him on multiple occasions, called and emailed with many questions, I was never charged additional fees. I didn't need to appear in court once. He handled everything. Ultimately, i received the least of punishment for first DUI offenders: court fees, MADD class, DUI classes, and DMV suspended my license. It was a streamlined process, and he never once postponed a court date.

    My second DUI could have been devastating for me. I was looking at 90 days jail (since i was still on probation for first DUI,I was liable for jail time of 30 days, plus an additional 60 days for 2nd DUI). Zack knew the judges, requested a different, more lenient judge. I received 60 days home confinement and NO BAIL BOND. Second DUI's usually have a bail set at 25K. Zack was also able to dismiss a drug charge, and i was only charged for driving under the influence and driving with a BAC over .08 (As a condition of my first DUI, i wasn't allowed to drive with any amount of alcohol in my system). I was astounded and elated (relatively). I cannot express my gratitude in words. I feel he's an attorney with high moral standards and integrity. His office staff is friendly and extremely helpful.

    After receiving my expungement confirmation today, I am nothing less than awestruck and relieved for Zachary McCready's abilities and service – thank you! My situation hung over my head for some years now preventing me from moving forward in my life and career. Mr. McCready was extremely honest with me at the start. I attribute this positive outcome entirely to his legal skills and professionalism. This was the best investment I’ve ever made and money well spent. He was very informative, and always response with any questions I had about the process, and its' outcome. I highly recommend Zachary McCready. Thank you, again!

    • I do not recommend Zachary Mccready.
    • I hired Zachary 6-12 months ago.
    • Zachary handled my Arbitration matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Would not recommend. Hired him throughout my brothers recommendation. After our meeting, he never responded back to my emails or told me how should proceed with my case, after he told we he would after reviewing the case. What a waste of time..

    • I hired Zachary 6-12 months ago.
    • Zachary handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    With his knowledge and experience he beat the DMV and kept my license from being suspended. Always kept me informed and got back to me with whatever questions I had. Very confident about how he will perform in court in a worse case scenario that my case doesn't get dismissed before trial. The reason I chose him to represent me was his genuine concern for my case and wanted to help. Other lawyers that I spoke with seem uninterested and boring. He gave me hope in a bad situation.

    Zach helped me get appointed a DEJ and helped facilitate the whole court process for me. He broke everything down into language and terms I could understand and felt comfortable with. He explained what was going on and my options from the get-go. I was thoroughly pleased with the outcome and his work.

    Hi,
    Zack Mccready is the VERY best lawyer that I have ever used in my 57 years of life. I was married to a lawyer for 24 years so I do have experience into the insights and outcomes of how different Lawyers perform.
    Zack went far and above any expectation I had, when hoping for a certain outcome in my new husband's case. Zack communicated with me regularly, keeping me abreast of the status of my case and what he was doing to accomplish our goal.
    Of course he WON our case. He did a FANTASTIC job and he achieved our hoped for outcome. His prices were the best I found. But that is not why we chose him. Several friends had recommended him to us. He worked so hard and everything he did was accurate and accomplished in a timely manner.
    We were completely thrilled with all that he did for us. He is intelligent, tenacious, hard working, personable, honest, and skilled.
    If I ever need a lawyer again I would not even consider hiring anyone but Zack. I will feel appreciative of him and his services for the rest of my life.
    I WILL hire him for whatever I might need need in the future.
    He GETS THE JOB DONE no matter what it takes.
    Thank You Zack.

    I hired Zachary to handle my case a few months ago. Going to court and being wrongfully accused was stressful. Zachary made the whole process easier. He was very knowledgeable and represented me very well. He is a very skilled attorney and brought evidence in on my behalf that proved my innocence. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is facing charges.

    • Zachary handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I was wrongfully being accused of a hit and run in the city of Santa Monica. The worst part is that I was being charged criminally for it! Zachary had the brilliant idea to file a motion for civil compromise, subpoena the alleged victim, and provide a cashier’s check to him. The DA was opposed to this and filed her opposition. When we appeared in court I had my cashier’s check and the alleged victim was present. He wanted his money and I wanted to get the hell out of court and carry on with my life. Zachary provided documents to the Commissioner and DA indicating that I am fully employed and a full-time student. The DA could have cared less but you know what the best part was?! The commissioner stipulated to the motion for civil compromise, the victim was paid, and the case was dismissed. I have no criminal conviction thanks to Zachary and his team!

    Kept up the communication and fought for me!!! Even did a few extra things I'm not sure that I actually paid him to do. He certainly has you in mind and informs you of each step, setback, result, and next thing to do. I'd certainly hire him again and recommend him to friends and family.
