Alana Segal, Esq
My expectations were high to begin with but she exceeded even those. Alana went above and beyond in every way. The ideal is to stay out of trouble. But if you can't, she's the phone number to have on hand!

Excellent Attorney, Definitely Recommend
From the minute Alana took my case, she was completely on top of every detail. She really cared about the issue I was dealing with and pursued this case vigilantly. The sense of relief I felt when my landlord stopped harassing me was indescribable and I owe Alana a huge debt of gratitude. It is refreshing to have a young lawyer, completely passionate about law, on your side. I would definitely use her services again.

Fantastic Young Lawyer
Alana is a thorough and tenacious advocate for her clients. I have been practicing as either a criminal defense attorney or prosecutor for 15 years and have known Alana since she was in law school. She has always had a natural inclination and love for criminal defense and has the rare combination of someone who is articulate and persuasive in a courtroom but with a incredible attention to detail in her research and motion practice. Alana is no doubt a rising start in criminal defense and Los Angeles. I would enthusiastically recommend her without any reservations to anyone looking for a zealous advocate.

very personable, professional, educated lawyer to ease your mind
Alana Segal was very kind, very understanding of my anxiety, yet super informative and professional at the same time. My case was tricky and caused me a great deal of stress, but Alana was very helpful in soothing my mind and doing her best to get a quick conclusive end to the whole ordeal. I would highly reccommend her and can't thank her enough for changing my life!

Excellent Attorney
Ms. Segal is a very knowledgeable and savvy attorney. She was able to navigate the criminal procedures and got my case dismissed!!! She always kept me informed about new developments in my case. I felt she walked me through the process every step of the way. I would recommend her services and would use them again.

I feel unsatisfied
I've received a call out from them a female voice addressed to me offering the two languages speaking coversation as well English and Russian. In the biggining the counterpart who's name I didn't recognize properly and shunned off to re-ask trying to skimp on air time, especially free for the initial talk, was generally rather suave and encouranged me to explain more of my case. While I am explaining she's obviously lost interest to the topic and many times passed from one language to another just out of blue. Moreover she gave me neither clear advise nor reasonable explanation to why should I get her hired and even omitted with sending me her email to address the details of my case. I think the such attitude doen't correspond to any code of conduct for the civilized people will carry on business. Especially such delicate as a legal one.
