Amazing Attorney!
Moaddel Law Firm is by far the best firm you can have represent you. If you want to win a case - hire this firm ASAP! Don't hesitate. Daniel Moaddel is an amazing, strong, confident attorney, and won my case with ease. Claudia was also fantastic, professional, and worked so extremely hard for my case, and constantly checked in with me and provided me updates throughout the case. Claudia is definitely one of the hardest working attorney's in LA. Kimberly, the legal Assistant was just as great. I was so extremely lucky to have this amazing team representing me, and by my side through it all. I was so fortunate to have such a great team. This firm worked so extremely hard for me and my witnesses, and went above and beyond to win my case. I highly recommend hiring Moaddel Law Firm if you want peace of mind, if you want want a great defense, if you want to achieve great results. Even though it was one of the most stressful, scariest situations that I have ever been through in my entire life, Daniel Moaddel made me feel more at ease, and confident that everything would be okay because the firm would not give up without a fight to defend me the best they can. The firm constantly checked in with me almost every other day, whether through phone call, text message, or email. They maintained constant communication so that we were always on the same page. This firm is fearless. Thank you so much Moaddel Law Firm for your hard work! Thank you for standing by my side throughout the whole process. I will forever be grateful.

Clear record
Dan helped clear my record by removing a case I had years ago. He gave me the results in a organized packet. Overall he did great.

Very Helpful
Daniel Moaddel and his team helped me through this case that I had. Sometimes people end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Just tagging along with the boys and we trespassed through a private property. Unfortunately, the owner called the cops and claimed we trying to steal from him. But with this firm they helped me through it all and i couldnt have asked any other Law Firm.

Great attorney
WOW! Moaddel did a fantastic job on my case, Dan really wasnt fooling around when he says they go hard in court. They reduced my sentencing and got me the results I was hoping to get too.

Trusting attorey
I'm glad I came to Moaddel for my traffic tickets, they got rid of them in no time and my assistant Cynthia was very communicative with me every step of the way. Glad I hired Dan, I'm in good hands.

aggressive, persistent, and firm attorney!
Moaddel's knowledge of the law is absolutely impressive. He’s approach in the court rooms is aggressive, persistent, and firm. His attentiveness towards you the client is sincere. His humbleness towards everyone from janitors to attorneys to Judges is beautiful. My husband was facing a 10 year sentence on strong accusations. Our life was turned upside down. Moaddel literally save us and I highly recommend him.

Awesome Litigator
I have used several attorneys over the years. I found Daniel Moaddel to be the best one I have had. He is very understanding and very good at communicating your options to you. He's fought extremely hard for me in my most recent case where I was facing 2 misdemeanors and of both, I was given only community service.

Perfect guide through criminal process
I had a great experience at Moaddel. They showed me how to look up penal codes and they helped me with my case as well. Glad I hired Dan to coach me through the process.

Simple and quick!
Wow I was really surprised and grateful for how helpful you all were. I've never been pulled over before, and eventually it'll happen to all of us. It happened to me on the 5th of January and at the time, my license was expired, so I got really scared. I got pulled over for running a red light (which was malfunctioning at the moment), so it wasn't fully my fault. I was also notified I was speeding. I didn't know what to say when I was pulled over and I panicking thinking I was going to ruin my record for these mishaps. I went to another lawyer that sounded SPECTACULAR on paper, but turned out to be the complete opposite when I came in for my consultation. My relative referred me to Mr. Moaddel, after they successfully won a personal injury case. From the very first day that I went into the office, they made sure that no time was wasted and that they got all the information that I would need to win the case. I was luckily able to get all the tickets dropped and win! I am forever grateful and wish I could give more than 5 stars for the amount of help that was offered. Thank you Mr. Moaddel!

Car Accident Simplified.
I recently got into an accident a month back. I have gotten assistance before with another case, but the law firm was not that helpful, so my impression with hiring a lawyer was not so great. A couple of friends recommended me to come here, Moaddel law firm which I was a little bit doubtful about, but I ended up doing it anyways. I do not regret coming here one single bit. The staff is very professional and kind, and assisted me with all the questions and needs that I had for my car accident case during my consultation. Eventually, my case was solved and I'm forever grateful for that!

Got more help than I expected!
As soon as I stepped into Moaddel's law firm, him and his team made me feel safe and like the case was going to have absolute success right from the consultation! Him and his team were absolutely very knowledgable and had no doubts when they were explaining the process to me, as well as make sure I did not feel uncomfortable or leave with any doubts. I ended up finding out that my rights were violated when I was pulled over, as well as other small nit-picky details that I would have not known of if it weren't for their help. Thank you Mr. Moaddel.

Traffic Ticket
21. I had a traffic ticket I was dealing with and so I started calling around for legal counsel. Most of the firms didn't even call me back. Mr. Moaddel promptly returned my call. He told me he didn't handle these types of cases but he took the time to discuss the case with me and offer advice. I wasn't even a client and yet he took the time to help me. Imagine what he can do for you if you are actually his client. Oh, and by the way, his advice was spot on. I won the case using his strategy!

Excellent service
I had multiple speeding tickets and I looked into consulting an attorney to see what I was able to do. A friend recommended Moaddel and I got to say, he was very helpful. He was very knowledgeable and thanks to his help I was able to keep a conviction off my driving record. I highly recommend this law firm as the team and attorney were very professional and courteous.
