DUI Expungement
I hired Brian to expunge a DUI I had been convicted of years back. Brian got the DUI expunged in only 3 weeks. I read the fastest time it usually takes is 2 months, that is how efficient and quick Brian was in handling this for me. He is extremely diligent, quick to respond and clearly excellent at what he does.

The BEST Of the BEST
Brian Hurwitz is the absolute BEST personal injury attorney in Los Angeles. He is easy to communicate with, compassionate, professional, and has a thorough understanding of the law. He exceeded all of my expectations. I am so greatful that I found Hurwitz Law Group after my auto accident two years ago. Before filing a lawsuit, the insurance company made me what I thought was a good offer. But when I brought it to Brian Hurwitz, he felt that I could get a better settlement. He continued fighting for me, going through litigation, depositions, and arbitration until he got the car insurance company to pay the POLICY LIMIT. I suffered from chronic pain and lifestyle changes after my car accident. Brian and his staff were both professional and caring. I appreciated that they wanted to make sure I was not stressed out by the legal process so that I could concentrate on my medical treatment. Brian is very thorough and detail oriented, and he valued my input and opinions throughout the case. During the arbitration process he was articulate and persuasive. He really understood my injury and the impact it had on my lifestyle. But most importantly, during my arbitration hearing, Brian communicated clearly and with conviction as he explained the impact that the accident had on all aspects of my life. I could no longer lead a normal lifestyle. He advised me appropriately on how to speak at my arbitration hearing. And he also prepared me well for my deposition. I am beyond happy with my settlement and cannot thank Hurwitz Law Group enough. I will forever be greatful for Brian Hurwitz. He is the Best of the Best.

5 Star Attorney, very professional & compassionate
Brian is a very professional and compassionate attorney who is an expert in his field. We hired him as one of our go-to attorneys. I think anyone would benefit from being a client of his as he takes his time in understanding every situation no matter how small the issue is. I highly recommend him if you are looking for an experienced and personal counsel.

My DV case
Brian Hurwitz Back to our family life again! My daughter would thank you for saving her family too. I'm really grateful another lawyer recommended you to me. I barely hired you after my case went to court, and you got my case dismissed! The case was stacked against me, but you found a way out for me. Brian is quite efficient, calm, personable, and down to earth. Thank you again for representing me and for your kindness, God Bless you in everything. I don't expect to come back for help again, but you'd be the first person I'd call or recommend!

Restraining order
Mr. Hurwitz helped me obtain a restraining order against my ex husband for 5 years. His tireless effort allowed me to win my case. He was always willing to answer any questions I had, regardless of the time of day. I am grateful for his efforts.

Brian Was Great
Brian was very kind in meeting with me on a Saturday. He was very friendly and insightful. He takes the time to understand what you are going through and discuss all aspects with you. I could tell he cared about what my expectations were as well he discussed all possible outcomes. He makes you feel like he is invested in your future. I would recommend him to anyone who was in trouble, and needed somebody on their side.

One of the best
Brian is an exceptional attorney. He underpromises and overdelivers, which is precisely what you want from a lawyer. His support staff is both helpful and available at all hours of the day, as is Brian himself. Although my case was a civil matter, Brian fought tooth and nail to pressure the other side into capitulation, which he did so by securing a (rather favorable) settlement. He also happens to be a great guy who shows nothing but empathy towards his clients.

Excellent Representation-Respect-Humanity & a GETS RESULTS ATTITUDE!
I cannot truly express just how good Mr. Hurwitz is as both an attorney and a human being. I was arrested and accused of Assault w a Deadly Weapon and was truly scared for my future. He was so kind and helpful with explaining everything to me before, during and afterwards of how "we were going to beat this". He told me he knew a lot of the folks in the DA's office and the City Attorney and since I had no priors and had never even been arrested this was going to be ok because he believed in me and knew I had not done this terrible thing I was accused of. He is exceptional in his professionalism and caring demeanor - he allowed me to pay in amounts over a period so I could afford his representation But he was ready to fight if that is what it came down to. His staff were marvelous as well listening to me and helping me feel less frightened of what might happen. In the end there was No Guilty verdict, No Jail, No Fines just a short conversation with the City Attorney. Brian MADE that happen through his hard work, constant effort and connections within the system. If you NEED an Attorney and are afraid or unsure of what to do just call HIM. You will never regret it. Brian Hurwitz is THE MAN!

When my niece was arrested for a DUI and her mother was out of the country, we were in a real predicament! We found out about Brian Hurwitz and could not be more happy with his efforts. Brian is smart, strong and truly fought for my niece! Thank you Hurwitz Law Group for getting her a dismissal; we're so appreciative that we can leave this in the past, and my niece has a clean record again.

Best criminal defense lawyer! I was facing felony charge and things were looking bad. I didn't know what to do or who to go to. No one believed in my case until I met Brian Hurwitz! Brian instilled in me belief that he could handle my case and get me a better result! He is smart and creative attorney. Brian showed me that if you hire the right lawyer it can make a difference. He really does have good relations with the Judge and DIstrict attorney in CCB downtown courthouse. Brian was able to get my felony dismissed and got me a misdemeanor! He is my go to Lawyer! So thankful I found him. Hire Brian now!

Brian Hurwitz Is the best and won 3 of my cases!
I hired Brian to handle one case which had three different charges filed against me. He represented me in all three charges. He won each case and even got each one of the charges dismissed by speaking to the DA before trail/court. Brian has and always shown true care for my life and as his client. Its very refreshing to know I was safe during this horrible time in my life. Thank you Brian for everything! Jason!!

Best criminal attorney in all of LA
Brian was a god send to us during the worst time of our lives. During an arrest my nephew was shot by an LAPD officer 7 times. While he was clinging to life in a coma and on life support he was charged with several felonies. We were going crazy because we could not see him and the police would not even let the hospital staff give us updates. That's when we decided we needed to retain an attorney. We called several local attorneys and interviewed them back to back in the hospital cafeteria. From day one Brian was was compassionate and helpful. It was a breath of fresh air to speak with him after speaking to all the "ambulance chasers" who had little or no compassion in our darkest hour. Brian got us answers and medical updates. My nephew was being held on one million dollars bail which we new we could never afford. Brian fought some of the charges and got them thrown out therefore reducing his bail to $335,000 which we still could not afford so Brian continued to fight for us. He was able to get my nephew home to us with NO bail! Yes you read that right we paid no bail he was released OR and all we had to do was pay for a ankle monitor! Brian is the perfect attorney because of his client compassion AND the fierce fight he can bring to the court room. If you need help don't risk it, call Brian!
