My daughter's DUI & failure to appear, $5,000 Bench Warrant from 2005 was a dark shadow of her brief stay in So. Calif. Now living on the east coast, she wanted to get her life squared away and move forward.
I found Atty Elena on the AVVO site and after going through some of her client's reviews, did an initial consult after which, my daughter and I chose Elena as our legal counsel.
That was January 2016. three months later, Elena's associate, Randy was able to get the Bench Warrant squashed. However, the LA Airport judge was very unhappy that my daughter had not contacted the court for more than 10 years and ordered her to appear in-person May 8th.
With the Bench Warrant squashed, my daughter was able to get a driver's license so she could fly to LA. She asked if I'd come with her, of course I went with her.
Being in court that day and observing the preceding cases coming before the court, the judge was having an off day with so many people coming before her totally unprepared. By the time my daughter's case came up, the judge wanted to mandate a jail sentence of 10 days for every year the case had been open. Randy had a report with the LA City Atty and was able to get her sentence reduced to 45 days, with the notation that it was not very likely she;d serve the entire 45 days. There were promises though! she agreed and would surrender after the weekend.
My daughter, her uncle and I went with her early Monday morning. Atty Elena was there with a final attempt to negotiate a better deal. To no avail, the court reviewed the 45 day sentence and my daughter was whisked into custody after we hugged her good bye. The good part of this situation is that, when she's done, the case will be closed with no probation, fines, etc.
I returned to home to Wisconsin. Needless to say, the "Dad" aka me, was feeling really helpless even with the assurance of Atty Elena. After two days, May 12th (My birthday), I got a call from my daughter that she was out and to please call her uncle. Prayers answered!
I am very grateful to Atty's Elena and Randy for their professionalism and personal attention to my daughter's DUI case.
Thank you Ms Elena and Randy,
Duvie and JD

I had major problems with suspension of my driverâ€™s license. Unfortunately I had gotten a number of tickets that I had failed to appear on them and alongside with that had gotten few tickets for driving with a suspended licenses. I was facing major fines and penalties for not taking care of these issues on time and was scared and totally confused. I had absolutely no idea where to start to get my life back on track. I found Ms. Mebtahi on line and realizing she specializes in this area of law I felt constable retraining her and letting her handle everything for me. All I can tell you is that she kindly took over my problems, got my license released in a matter of days, got a number of my cases dismissed and at the end I ended up saving money with her representing me rather than if Iâ€™d paid for all my tickets not to mention that I didnâ€™t end up getting any points on my driving record as well and never had to appear in court. Ms. Mebtahi just did it all for me and I couldnâ€™t be more satisfied. Iâ€™ve so far recommended Ms. Mebtahi to at least 2 of my friends. I hope I wonâ€™t need an attorney again but if so she be the first person I would call.

I needed to make a sudden stop right before the intersection due to the other car cut in front of me turning left. I asked a police officer why it is a red light violation if I didn't cross the intersection and he replied: "Well, since your front wheels crossed a white line, technically it is a red light violation". Really? "Yes and do not argue with me"! Elena Mebtahi managed to dismiss this citation. I really liked that we were not required to meet in person due to my busy schedule; saves time and money! We communicated by phone and email; all supporting documents were faxed. She was straight to the point, understood the problem and solved it. I liked it. I believe she is very knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend her as an attorney for your legal needs should you need any. Thank you very much Elena for your assistance.
