  • Anthony Michael Solis

    I've worked closely with Stephanie Ames on a number of matters. There are few attorneys who work harder on cases than Stephanie. She is smart and tenacious whether it is in negotiation or litigation. I admire her keen intellect as well as the respect she enjoys from prosecutors, judges and colleagues. I would highly recommend Stephanie Ames to anyone accused of a crime who requires a capable and passionate defender.

  • Mark Chambers

    Over the past five years I have seen Attorney Stephanie Ames represent her clients in Federal District Court in Los Angeles. Her clients understand what she is doing for them and how she is accomplishing it, which builds a great relationship between her and her clients. This has been the foundation for the outstanding results she has obtained.
