This guy is excellent!! I would highly recommend
I recently had the pleasure of being helped by Power Trial Lawyers and Matthew Barhoma, and let me tell you, they're absolutely amazing. The lawyer who took care of my case was like a superhero in a suit. They really cared about my situation and made sure I understood everything that was happening. Whenever I had a question or needed an update, they were right there, ready to help. When it was time to go to court, I was nervous, but the lawyer was like a rockstar up there. He really handled it well and calmed me down. They knew exactly what to say and how to say it, and they got me the best result possible. Plus, they filed excellent paperwork. I've dealt with other lawyers before, but none of them were as organized and on top of things as this firm. And let's not forget about the case manager. I worked with Jenny. She was like the lawyer's sidekick, always there to help out and keep things running smoothly! They were great. I recommend them Long story short, I highly recommend this law firm They're the real deal, and they'll make sure you're taken care of every step of the way. Five stars all the way, thank you !!!

ALL CHARGES DISMISSED! THANK YOU MR. BARHOMA
Mr. Barhoma got all charges dismissed! I called him when my son got a DUI. He was charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest, and possession of a controlled substance. Mr. Barhoma explained things so well. He eventually did exactly the strategy he outlined for us during our initial call. Mr. Barhoma knew the downtown la courthouse very well. He was able to work his magic and dismiss all charges! Mr. Barhoma restored my son a full life. And no amount of money could be worth that. Thank Mr. Barhoma!!!!

Best Criminal Defense Attorney
Matthew is the best criminal defense attorney ever. He is a BEAST! He won by SB1437 case in 4 months. The PD's office was giving us the runaround. As soon as we retained Mr. Barhoma, he instantly added value to my case. He gave very very insightful advice and was able to do what the PD's office could not. During oral argument, Mr. Barhoma was absolutely amazing. His courtroom capabilities are unmatched. I've yet to find an LA lawyer like him. He is the best criminal defense and appeals attorney I have ever met. Thank you so much Mr. Barhoma! You changed our lives!!!!

Most Knowledgable Lawyer! 10/10!!!!
Matthew is extremely knowledgable. He ALWAYS picks up the phone and ALWAYS responds to emails. There is no limit. He will always do what it takes. He has gone above and beyond for me! I am so happy I hired him. Matt is an absolute monster in the court room. Opposing lawyers do not even stand a chance when he starts arguing in court. He is very charismatic and persuasive! He has a way to speaking with judges. I would hire him again and again!

Matt is the best
Matthew is a double threat. He is extremely creative with his deal making skills. He helped my startup survive and when i needed him for another case that was in court, he was extremely savvy. I would give him 10 stars, if possible. Matt communicates extremely well (sometimes even on the weekends and late nights) and always made sure to go the extra mile in protecting my interests. Matt is just amazing. I wish more lawyers could be as good as Matt. He was more than a lawyer. Matt was a friend and a coach in my corner.

Amazing Lawyer
Matthew is the most knowledgeable lawyer. I have worked with teams of lawyers and none of them were as knowledgeable and prompt as Matthew. I trust all of my company's legal affairs with Matthew. He makes me rest easy knowing he is on it.

Extremely Knowledgeable
Matthew was extremely knowledgeable. He helped secure $1.6 million transaction in a gas station flawlessly. He responds to emails and calls well and he is very strategic. When we consulted, he was very clear on his plan of attack. unlike my last lawyer, Matthew makes you his teammate and works with you. Whenever he sent me documents, he would explain them well and when I asked for clarification, he would call me and explain things. Even when I was slow or annoying, he never rushed me. He worked out a deal my previous lawyer could have never worked out! So, so strategic and smart! I trust him with all my assets.

Closed a $5 million transaction
Matthew was proactive when he closed a $5 million transaction for my company. Very responsive. Assertive in negotiations. He was not cheap but he provides extremely good service. Matt was able to close the transaction a month before schedule. Our company couldn’t believe it.

Matthew Protected my Liability and Allowed me to Enter into International Agreements
Matthew drafted all my services agreements and helped me protect all my possible liability. He was VERY responsive and very tech savvy. He knew exactly what I needed and was able to describe it to me extremely well! He rounded down on his hourly and genuinely cared for my brand. He also helped me enter into a international agreement with foreign companies! He further drafted my Terms and Conditions, which allowed me to cover all my liability! Matthew is currently on retainer for my company and I couldn't be more at peace because of it! I love his work ethic and his ability to produce quality work! He's truly an expert in his field and such a caring lawyer. He was even capable of fixing the wrongs of my old lawyer who used me and my company for profit.

Impeccable
Mr. Matthew Barhoma, is indeed an outstanding lawyer. His integrity and dedication to my case has blown me away. After a bad experience with another lawyer I thought I wouldn't be able to find one that was honest and hardworking. But lo and behold Mr. Barhoma and I met and he took care of ALL my legal issues. Highly recommend this man.

AMAZING LITIGATOR
Matthew appeared on behalf of my business in a $1.5 million breach of contract claim. He negotiated the case so well for me and he did great work for our business. The judge was impressed with his work and he successfully got my case dismissed. I would hire him again and again. Matthew is my first point of contact regarding any legal issues.

WARNING !!!DO NOT HIRE THIS GUY HE WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY
My husband and I hired Matthew to do a review of his case and to see what his options were to get him released. I should have trusted my instincts with this guy. He talked a good game said he would review my husbands case and let us know what his options are. We paid him and never heard back, tried several times to get a hold of him and nothing! We finally got a call when I emailed him telling him my husband was being considered for resentencing that my husband and I filed before hiring Matthew. He said he was trying to call me but had the wrong number. The call was only to ask for more money 20,000.00 to be exact he gave me a shady sales pitch saying he would put what we gave him towards the fee for representation on the resentencing and we just give him 20,000 more. I should have read the complaint on him on the BBB website before giving him anything someone with the same experience that I had. In conclusion, I declined paying him another dime and asked him to provide the review that we paid for and never got it , The only thing he sent my husband was a bill of charges for phone calls that he said he made to us regarding his case . No case review was ever done he just took our money.
