Hired Mr. Damas and so should you
Our lawyer was better prepared than the other lawyer. He knew every detail of our case and used his knowledge of the law to win our case. He asked the right questions and his closing arguments sealed the deal. He convince the judge to grant us the restraining order. We now feel a little safer knowing that we have a restraining order against our assailants and it was all due to Mr. Damas’ strong work ethic and passion for justice.

Highly Recommend! True expert and experienced attorney
This was my first time ever being arrested and it was scary. I was falsely accused of domestic violence in Torrance, CA. Eddie conducted an investigation and gathered all the facts of my case. He believed in my innocence ane stuck by me during this stressful time. He was prepared to take my case to trial. The DA eventually chose to dimiss my charges and terminate the restraining order. I HIGHLY RECOMMED EDDIE! He is a legit and confident attorney.

The best of the best!
While no one wanted to take the case or represent my family, Mr. Damas did! He listened and did not hesitate to help my family and I through this difficult time. His active involvement in the case has given my family and I hope to find justice that we deserve. He is professional, active listener, and knowledgeable. He has definitely been able to guide us you through the process. Thank you!

Quick Release From Jail
If you need a lawyer, I highly recommend you call Mr. Edward Damas. When I was arrested, I had no idea that someone outside of jail was working diligently to set me free in the shortest time possible. After long hours of incarceration and surviving on a diet of peanut sandwiches for two days, Mr. Damas came to the rescue. He managed to convince the D.A. to dismiss the charges, and that allowed me to walk free me from jail in an expedited manner. Call Mr. Damas if you need legal assistance. You will be glad you called someone who has the legal muscle to resolve your predicament and bring back your peace of mind.

He’s a 5 star Attorney... Thank you Eddie for helping me.

Criminal Defense
If you have never been in the court system, being accused of something you didn’t do is one of the scariest things you’ll ever encounter. Something even scarier is trusting your life with a public defender. I knew if I didn’t hire a private attorney I’d never have the opportunity to fight my case; so I bailed out and started contacting different law firms. While searching I came across The Rodguiez Law Firm where I met Edward Damas. From the first time I met with him I felt confident. Even though I was being charged with multiple criminal felonies he didn’t make me feel like I was an actual criminal. No matter what you’re being charged with, if he takes on your case he doesn’t make you feel like a horrible person. Don’t let his youth and good looks make you feel like he doesn’t know what he is doing. He is a great lawyer and his number one priority is keeping you out of jail. So if you are trying to stay out of jail then you need to hire Edward Damas. Not that I plan on getting into anymore legal trouble; however if I happen to, I at least know I have a competent lawyer I can always count on to fight for me. No one really plans on needing legal help so having a budget for legal expenses isn’t always there, but Mr. Damas is really awesome at helping you work out payment arrangements.

My brother’s case started as a three strikes case and Ed clarified that he only had one strike. He executed his plan during trial flawlessly with favorable results. Ed went above and beyond during trial. Definitely recommend him for anyone with criminal case.

Domestic Violence with Stabbing = No Jail
I cannot thank Attorney Edward Damas enough for helping me through the most difficult time in my life. I was accused of domestic violence involving a stabbing and threatened with a substantial amount of jail time. In the end my Attorney Edward Damas was able to point out all the weaknesses in the case and all I had to do were classes and community service Thank You!

I was very impressed with Ed Damas! I was confident about deciding to go with his services versus all the other lawyers I spoke to based off my first impression. He was very confident as far as what he can do for me and it wasn’t as if he was over zealous. He presented a strong plan on how to handle my case and was open with his previous experience in this situation. A lot of times lawyers sell themselves and don’t deliver half of what they promise, and we walk out feeling like we got scammed again, but this certainly wasn’t the case. I’m not one to continue bugging anyone when I hire them for a job, I expect you to be about what you offered and sold to me originally, so I gave him time to do his thing. ED delivered in a big way, and was able to get my criminal charges dismissed. I was facing heavy accusations, and it’s fair to say he delivered. I thank you and the firm

Need a Lawyer look no further Attorney Edward Damas is your man
I was looking at 5 years and permanent registration. I came in with Eddy Damas with my case and he drew up a plan and told me not to worry over it. Certainly so, I spent a day in jail with no life registration. Hiring at this defense law firm was a great decision.

Rockstar Attorney
I am a Heavy Metal Musician and I found myself in some heavy trouble. I was facing substantial prison time and multiple strikes under California 3 strikes law. All the other lawyers told me to take a 2 year prison deal but Not Edward Damas. Most lawyers plea you out to the first deal but it takes a Real lawyer a Rockstar, something I know a bit about to pull off what Edward Damas got for me. In the end I got zero prison and got to continue my music career. Long story short criminal case? Attorney Edward Damas should be your front man no questions asked. Thanks brother Rock on.

Edward Damas helped me through a very difficult situation. A roommate whom I previously had a relationship with shared a home with me for the past 8 years. This person had developed mental health issues and began stalking and sexually harassing me in the home. The abuse escalated so fast I began to fear for my safety on a daily basis. Instead of leaving my home, Edward Damas filed an emergency temporary restraining order. The person was removed from the home pending a future court hearing. Edward is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and easy to reach. The Rodriguez Law Group is very pleasant as well. Edward was also able to keep me calm during the court proceedings which I appreciated! The judge agreed with Mr. Damas and granted me a 2 year restraining order and also a move out order. Thanks to Edward Damas I am able to stay in my home and have the peace I deserve. Thank you for everything!
