If anyone is on here looking for quality legal representation, you have just found it!
Hart Levin and Matthew Cohen are two of the finest attorneys I have ever had the privilege of working with. When our youngest son was arrested on a very serious felony charge as well as a probation violation, my wife & I were frantic and did not know where to turn for help. After doing hours of research online trying to find the best legal team to represent him, we stumbled across Hart Levin and his stellar reviews on Avvo & Yelp. Hiring him was the best thing we could have done and we are SO glad that we did! From the initial consultation to the final outcome, Hart was calm, confident, very honest with us about the seriousness of the charges, and extremely supportive at a time when my wife & I were both very fragile emotionally.
My son was facing 4 years in prison - ready to be metered out by a cranky old judge (that should have retired ten years ago) and a very rigid female ADA with her own selfish agenda in mind. However, through a lot of very clever legal wrangling and positioning (and a few lucky breaks), Hart & Matthew were able to negotiate a suspended sentence, 3 years probation, and 6 months in a quality rehab program. I feel that the successful outcome can be directly attributed to the confidence, intelligence, and hard work that both of these men exhibited throughout the entire ordeal. As a former prosecutor, Hart was extremely knowledgeable of how whole system worked, and he must have been well-liked in the DA's office because he was stopped many times in the courthouse hallway by former colleagues inquiring how he was doing.
I know that the decision to hire an attorney is always a difficult one, but if you are considering hiring Hart Levin, then it will be easy... If you want the BEST, Hart Levin and his team are the only way to go!
Remember this old adage when you finally do decide on who to represent you or a loved one: "A good lawyer isn't cheap, but a cheap lawyer isn't good!" I know that you will make the right choice... Hire Hart Levin!

I hired Hart and Matt to defend a felony at the CCB in downtown LA. I was charged with felony possession of narcotics but I had a prescription for them that was issued in another country. Hart and Matt to the rescue! The case was DISMISSED ENTIRELY on the first court date. Couldn't be any happier with the guys. And, they are super nice and responsive. I hope I don't have more criminal cases but if I do, I wouldn't dream of using anyone but this firm.

Attorney Hart Levin represented me last week in my DUI case, The District Attorney's assigned Attorney wanted my head literaly... Just to make an example of me, I am a peace officer and was highly embarrased and disappointed in my behavior in receiving a DUI, i was treated rudely by the LA Sheriff's department but really what do you expect. I hired Mr. Levin who told me "You will not do any jail time" I didnt. "We will shoot for the lowest costs in penalty/fines" he did. Mr. Levin saved me alot of money and i know he will for you to. Anytime i had a question or concern i would call Mr Levin and either he would answer or i left a message and he would return my call in a timely manner. So if anyone who is in the same boat as me (DUI) trust me......Dont wast your time calling around, Hire Attorney Hart Levin, he will defend you all the way like he did me. This is the guy you want in your corner, we all make mistakes just dont make another by chosing the wrong Attorney cause it could cost you everything. Thanks Mr. Levin for helping me through this down time of my life.

I contacted Hart to help save my life after being charged with a serious felony crime. He exceeded my wildest expectations by getting the case rejected by the DA's office before it was ever even filed. He is a brilliant attorney and an absolute pleasure to work with. 10 stars if possible.

Freedom..... Like other reviews I also am giving Levin thumbs up for his overall performance and my freedom. I got 2 duis in a matter of months. Ya what an idiot I am. But we live and we learn. Mr Levin eased my depression and through a miraculous miracle he ended up throwing a Hail Mary and producing the least amount of punishment with an slap on the wrist as he ran both cases concurrent. I am truly grateful for his knowledge and expertise.
