He knows his work very well
I've had several opportunities to work with Seppi's firm over the years. Every experience I have had has been outstanding. They are ethical, hard working and really take care of their clients. I would highly recommend them!

Helped me out of crisis
I was under the influence of an unknown substance and went on to commit a violent crime without knowing what I did was wrong. It was the worst moment of my life. I literally thought my life was over, but thanks to Mr. Seppi, I was able to avoid jail time. If you are in any sort of trouble in LA, I would definitely recommend hiring Seppi to handle your case.

Seppi’s was personable and saw me right away after I contacted his office regarding a dispute I was having with a neighbor. My neighbor decided to start to put up new fencing along our properties line but it was clearly over the line I had documents detailing. I didn’t know how to contact him legally as we don’t have a very good relationship. seppi walked me through the process and the issue has been resolved.

Helped me a lot.
The team at Esfandi helped me a lot over the holidays when I was accused of shop lifting. Everything was a mistake but I wanted to figure out what to expect and see what my options were. The cost was reasonable and I was able to work out the situation.

Great team
I had a very good experience using this form before the holidays when I was pulled over for a suspected DUI. Seppi and his team provided guidance as to what to expect and I feel a lot more prepared now as I head in for my sentencing later this month.

Great law office
I had a great experience with Seppi and his team. They offered me solid advice when I needed to address a DUI charge I got over the holidays. I felt in good hands throughout the process. The cost was in line with what I expected to pay.

Great insights.
Seppi and his team assisted me quite a bit during a recent dispute I had with a contractor that didn’t finish the job I hired him for upgrading my basement. Seppi provided solid advise on what I should expect.

Really Helpful
My daughter got charged with a DUI last month when she was coming home from a party. Seppi and his team assisted my wife and I regarding our options and what to expect next. His fees were fair and we feel a lot more confident going into this process.

Perfect representation
I was referred to by friend of mine. He responded quickly to me and came in on the weekend to meet and review my case. After the meeting I felt a ton more relaxed and confident. Seppi and his staff handled the case professionally throughout the process and produced a victorious result. I would not go anywhere else to handle any legal matters.

Won't hesitate to come back
Extremely personable and accessible anytime. They even gave me their private personal cell phone for urgent matters. Of course they call back or text extremely fast too when I leave messages. Best of all I know they care about me and my case.

Professional
He is a genius! He defended me when I was in the university, my charges were dropped and I have no criminal record. His team is amazing with great lawyers. He doesn't care about money, he really cares about his clients.

Extremely helpful
Attorney Seppi was very professional. He took his time to explain my case and how we could solve it. Thanks to him I got only community service hours and not a conviction. If I have to get a lawyer again I will come back to Mr. Seppi he cares for his clients and takes his time to make sure he can give the best representation. 5 stars

Was there when I needed him most
He was the one who cleaned my name. I was able to prove my innocence. We never settled for anything less than innocence because he believed in me. For three years, he was by my side. His knowledge and professionalism helped me win my case. He truly cares about his customers. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome.

Great experience.
Seppi and his staff were great to deal with when I needed some legal advice last month. My neighbor accused my son of breaking into his home snd I needed help proving this was untrue.

"Seppi is a fierce advocate for his clients. He's the most knowledgeable and passionate criminal defense attorney I've ever seen. I endorse this lawyer."
Criminal defense Attorney | Dec 15
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Seppi is extremely knowledgeable and well-connected across a range of areas. He is one of the few high-profile LA attorneys who knows how to communicate with any client who might come into the office. He also maintains a comprehensive website that people from all-across the state use to find answers to a variety of legal questions. In 2015, I personally witnessed Seppi handle a case in which a young man was alleged to have been found with several kilograms of narcotics upon arrival at LAX from Mexico - that young man avoided charges in both state and federal court, he kept his green card, and homeland security agents personally returned his cellphones to the office upon Seppi’s request."
