For my family and me, Heddings are the BEST!
Best Lawyers in LA (Ron Senior or Ron Junior)! When do we need a lawyer? When we are facing big problems. Unfortunately for me, one of my most favorite family members has been having legal problems frequently in last 25 years and, fortunately, we came across Hedding firm then and used this firm (father or son) since, to help us with all our legal cases. First, every time when I call them, I feel no judgment! That is very important because you already feel low, sad, and talking to somebody who shows understanding is helpful. Secondly, if other attorneys will use this moment to scare you more to charge more, Heddings usually give you hope: they tell you that thing are not too bad. For example, I called thinking that our case (hit and run) will be Felony, but Ron Hedding Seniour right away assured me that it would be misdemeanor due to Circumstances of the case ! He did not use this moment to scare me and ask for higher price for his services and I really appreciate that. And even if the case is really bad, they give you hope that they will find a way to protect you from going to jail or get you off the hook that you are in; and always they deliver what they promised. Thirdly, they are not greedy like others and I can say that their prices are affordable. Furthermore: they always call you back be that after work hours or weekends; they always call and keep you posted how your case is going; they call and remind you that you have a court day in 1-2 days! They accept any credit card; they are always Friendly, Professional, Ethical and have good sense of humor; they are well known and well respected by judges in LA area specially; Want to express special thank you to Ron Senior for the last case: I thought that the driver license will be suspended but it was not! Thank you! If you need a lawyer, do not look further: CALL HEDDING OFFICE and you will not regret it.

Amazing
Mr Hedding is very smart and knows his job well. I can't believe that I had such a great lawyer for a very fair price. I hope I never have to call a lawyer ever again but, if I do I know who to call.

Great DUI attorney!
Ronald Hedding was perfect. Understanding and execution of all parts of the DUI legal process, as well as informing me of all aspects of my case put me at ease. Mitigating the best possible outcome for me was well above expectations and better than all others I have learned were in similar situations. Truly the best! Great Value!

Great Lawyer
Mr. Ronald W. Hedding is amazing, handling my case superbly! I had a domestic violence case and I was panic as hell. Mr. Ron W. Hedding listened to me very patiently, asked many questions and took all of my concerns seriously. He walked me through possible outcomes and what he could do to help me. Without any hesitation, I chose Mr. Ron W. Hedding as my attorney after consulting with several attorneys. He was very pro-active and always kept me well informed. He had good connections in the LAX court and knew the persecutor very well. The entire hearing lasted less than 10 minutes and I walked away with case dropped. I’m so glad that I asked him to be my attorney. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing a criminal defense attorney. Last but not the least, his price is very reasonable, the lowest among several attorneys I consulted.

Very Helpful
Mr. Hedding was very helpful in getting me through my case. He was always able to talk whenever I had questions about my case or was able to get back to me very quickly. I felt like I was always in good hands with Mr. Hedding since I first talked to him. I got more than I expected from him as he was able to help get my case dismissed.

Always kept me in the loop! How many lawyers consistently do that?
I had a recent court case on February 17, 2015 and was facing DUI charges with a BAC of .088 (blood) Ron Sr. was able to get an initial wet reckless offering but told me they were going to go for an even better outcome based on their research on my case. After reviewing the police report and MVAR he showed up in court and was able to convince the prosecutor to offer me a speed contest!! Needless to say I was extremely happy and grateful. Ron Sr. is a fantastic and caring attorney! I've dealt with lawyers who take your retainer and then seem to suddenly disappear on you. Not these guys. As I mention in my title, he always kept me in the loop, kept me informed and gave me peace of mind without any overpromises. Their fees were extremely reasonable and believe me, I shopped around. It's not fun going through DUI "stuff" and he and his son Ron Jr. (who is another awesome attorney) run a great practice and the whole team there is top notch. Thank You!

Hedding Law Firm, Encino, CA Friendly,Professional and Highly Ethical
Ronald W. Hedding was a pleasure to do business with. He is very knowledgeable, always willing to answer my questions and is prompt in returning my calls. Our case went back to 2009 and I needed some information. It was not readily available in the office. Mr Hedding called me back that day and said he would have all the information the next day for me and would call me back. He called me first thing in the morning after going to the court house to obtain a copy of the case. He explained everything to me and even sent me a copy of the case for my records. The whole office staff is friendly and goes out of their way to assist you. I would highly recommend Ronald William Hedding to anyone who needs a professional,trustworthy,ethical attorney . If I ever need legal representation it will be with Attorney, Ronald William Hedding. I have dealt with other attorney's and I would call with a question and never receive a call back or never get any update on my case, Very frustrating. You won't find that at Hedding Law Firm. By the way they won my case.

My daughter got herself in trouble in which I needed a lawyer asap. My sister to found Hedding Law Firm via internet with great reviews so I called him. I explained the situation on the phone and he saw us that same day. Both my daughter and I were wrecks - he immediately put us at ease and explained everything. With his knowledge and understanding of the system he was able to keep my daughter from going to jail. Ron Hedding is trustworthy, kind and easy to talk to; that I even recommended him to a friend. Hire him, you won't regret it.

One Heck Of a Lawyer...
Well let me start off by saying that i was very impressed with how professional and understanding Mr. Ronald William Hedding was. I had a previous lawyer that took my case and we went to court and i pled no contest to my DUI. Unfortunately afterwards i lost my job and wasn't able to get registered into my classes. I contacted my previous lawyer and he put me on calendar to go back to court but when the date came up he wasn't able to go to court for various reasons. It got to the point that i had a warrant out for my arrest and i had to make something happen fast or there was a very good possibility that i was going to get locked up. My father contacted various lawyers but everyone wanted thousands of dollars just to go back to court for one day and get my warrant removed. My father stumbled across Mr. Hedding's and he was very understanding about the entire situation and he scheduled me in for the following week. He went to court and for the first time a lawyer did what he said he was going to do and got the warrant recalled and me back in class. It was the first time that i felt that my lawyer earned his money. I haven't had to many lawyers but i had a bitter taste in my mouth still from my previous lawyer that charged me 3,500 dollars and didn't do anything that i couldn't do on my own. My previous lawyer painted one hell of a pic and didn't do anything that he said he was going to do and then left me out in the dust when i needed him to recall my warrant. Not only did Mr. Hedding do what he said he could do for me but he didn't bankrupt me with the fee's he charged me and to top it all off in LA county they make you pay 100 dollars to just enroll into your DUI classes. At the time i didn't have any money on me. He then pulled out 100 dollars out of his own pocket and said go register in your classes so you don't have to come back and take time out of work. I've never met suck a king hearted lawyer before. This guy was a angel sent. He didn't stereotype me based on my DUI conviction he based everything off of my character. Of course i made it my soul purpose to make sure that he received all of his money in return. Im never planning on him having to represent me in any cases from now on just because I'm never going to get in trouble again but i will definately recommend him to everyone i know. Thank you Mr. Hedding for believing that theres still good/trustworthy people out there. Thank you very much and god bless..

The absolute best!!
I was pulled over for a DUI in November '13. I waited up until the day before my court date to get representation from the Hedding Law Firm. Not only did he accept to represent me, he did it without taking full payment on the quoted price. (He let me pay the remainder of the balance a few weeks later) For it being my first run in with the law and my first experience hiring a lawyer, I was a little nervous about the whole thing, given all the horror stories about terrible lawyers.. I never thought I would be so at ease about the whole process. I was always informed what was going on either via mail or phone call. At no point did I feel Mr. Hedding was lying or telling me what I wanted to hear.. He was honest and straight to the point. I couldn't be happier with the whole experience. Oh and did I forget to mention that he got my DUI arrest down to an exhibition of speed ticket!!!!

The Hedding Law Firm
The Hedding Law Firm exceeded our expectations. Our court dates were continually postponed and we were required to appear multiple times, they always had a representative with us until a satisfactory Judgement was reached.

Best Lawyer!
I highly recommend Hedding Law firm. Ron Sr. handled my boyfriend's and mine's DUI cases exceptionally well. He managed to get both our DUI charges reduced to exhibition of speed with 2 years probation, as well as getting the chargers expunged after probation is served. Ron maintained great communication throughout the whole process, and kept us informed every step of the way. He also has great connections with the Van Nuys courthouse. We could not be more satisfied with his level of work to get the best sentencing given our circumstances.
