Was charged with 487 pc Grand Theft Felony and hired Mr. Cha as a lawyer. He was very knowledgeable and experienced at what he was doing. Was facing jail time with fines but reduced it to community service and neotiated a deal. He was very prompt with all of my questions and had a lot of connections with the D.A. and presecutors in Bellflower and Norwalk courts to work around the case with best results. I was worried about going to jail and he kept me out to save my life and future. I would definitely recommend him as the best lawyer to handle any criminal cases.
I had several misdemeanor probation violations, failure to appears, prior pleas that included jail time, several traffic tickets, with fees amounting to over $10,000, and about 2 years of jail hanging over my head in 2 different counties. He was able to recall all my warrants and failure to appears, reduce my fees and fines, and prevent me from having probation violations. Over all a great lawyer!!!
I was being charged with a DUI with an injury. I was really on the fence about getting a lawyer due to everyone having different opinions about them when it comes to a criminal case. Not only am I glad I got a lawyer, I am glad that I chose Jimmy Cha to represent me. I have heard the horror stories others have had when it comes to lawyers, yet my experience was everything but that. Jimmy was straightforward from the get go. Never promising anything he couldn’t do, and ultimately fulfilling his goal that he set from the beginning about my case. I was looking at 6 months in county jail, due to the circumstances of my case. Not only did I not spend one day in jail, I was able to complete community service instead of jail time. The relationships Jimmy has built at North Court in Fullerton allowed him to personally speak on my behave to the district attorney and the Judge about my case. That was ultimately the deciding factor to cut me the deal I got. I would personally recommend Jimmy to represent anyone who gets into trouble, and plan to work with him again to expunge this from my record.
Jimmy reduced my speed exhibition misdemeanor charge to a speeding ticket, then got it all dismissed without me going to court. He kept me informed before and after each arraignment and court date. He was flexible on contacting him for any questions. Everything was handled in a professional manner. I would recommend him for any criminal or traffic cases.
Jimmy definitely helped me out. I was fighting 2 felony drug charges & Jimmy got me a deal that had no jail time in it. My felony charges got dropped to A misdemeanor. My first offer was 9 months, 1 year probation, & to register as a drug offender. He got it dropped to a donation, 3 year INFORMAL probation, and 60 day caltrans. He made sure to always answer any concerns I had and always explained all the things I couldn't understand. I couldn't have asked for more!
Jimmy literally saved my life. I was looking at jail time, the loss of my career, and the ability to take care of my family. Where as I was leaning towards taking a plea bargain deal initially, jimmy thought my case had merit to win. I followed his advice and we subsequently went to trial.
Through Jimmy 's expertise and repoir with the city attorney, all charges were dropped. If anyone ever finds themself in legal nightmare as I was, don't hesitate to give jimmy a look at your case.
Jimmy Cha was an excellent attorney. He not only took care of my dui case, but i also had a misdemeanor assault and battery case that he took care of. He kept me out of jail on my third dui offense, which was tricky due to the fact that i had a violent crime that was charged with. So first off, he got my assault and battery dismissed, and got me enrolled into dui court. After the sentencing Jimmy also made sure that everything was going well, and told me to call him if i had any questions for him.
Jimmy kept me well informed throughout my court process. He contacted me everyday before i had court to remind me what time and courtroom to be in. Also gave me a step by step description of what is going on with both of my cases. Such as telling me when a new offer came on the table, and what the old offer was. It felt as if he cared about my happiness more than just getting a quick and easy deal. I have dealt previously with attorneys that pretty much treated me like a quick buck. They just tell me to sign the first deal that they get offered by the DA, but jimmy made sure that i was happy with the deal that we were signing.
This was probably my most worst part of my life. My DUI charge included bodily injury, including a broken bone. I consulted a few lawyers, and I was told that I was most likely going to get a felony charge and get jail time. No lawyer can guarantee that they will get you out of that, but Jimmy came through for me. Anyone I told about my case, including an instructor at my DUI class, told me I got off easy. I'm told I got off with the bare minimum sentence of a normal DUI charge with a misdemeanor.
Jimmy Cha definitely knows his way around the court and have provided me with the utmost professional service. He impressed me when he took on my case in such short notice that was given to him. I was very nervous about a potential criminal case, but Mr. Cha was able to prevent it from being filed. I highly recommend Jimmy Cha to anyone who needs a criminal defense attorney and sincerely appreciate all that he has done for me. Once again, "Thank you Jimmy, and two thumbs up!" =)
I contacted Attorney Jimmy Cha with the hopes that he would be able to guide me through the felony expungement and Certificate of Rehabilitation process. I had consulted several attorneys before him, all who had quoted exorbitant costs, especially because my record consisted of multiple felony cases with violations. Jimmy charged me an extremely reasonable fee, and always made sure I clearly understood each step of the process. He was precise and thorough, and always arrived early at every court date, even before I did. The amount of time and paperwork he had to put together to ensure I would have the best chance at a favorable outcome was considerable, and his effort was easily apparent.
I was granted both the expungements and the Certificate of Rehabilitation, and I have Jimmy to thank. He really made a stressful, intimidating process smooth and uncomplicated.
