Truly remarkable work and the best DUI & criminal defense attorney in the LA area. First, Troy is a very dedicated and understanding attorney whom acts as a partner and advocate for his clients. Second, he takes a "holistic" in-depth approach that undermines the cops abilities to build a solid case. I think, the DA drops it as soon as he sees who's on file with the case. Anyway, my wrongfully accused DUI that was shaping up to be a long hard fight, ended up being dismissed with not a single note filed against my criminal history. I initially contacted Troy about my charge on a Saturday and was astonished when he immediately responded to help me. From that point on, he was always available to answer my questions, something I never received with past representations. The day after my arraignment, I called Troy and low and behold he informed me that everything had been dismissed. In conclusion, as frightening and stressful of a process as a DUI case can be, Troy makes it very easy for his clients to focus on their everyday lives while he works tirelessly and effortlessly to get you the best results possible. Troy's tremendous reviews on avvo were the reason I chose him. Indeed, Troy lived up to every last one of his recommendations. As a result, I would recommend Troy to anybody who finds themselves in a hard situation. THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING!!

I was cold calling attorneys for a situation involving a drivers license suspension due to a civil case, not the criminal DUI cases that Troy represents. He sat on the phone with me for 15 minutes offering his help to a complete stranger. He referred me to other lawyers that could help and a phone number to the mandatory actions unit in Sacramento. Troy made my day and gave me hope in a dire situation. Thank you Troy for being a good guy and a compassionate human. If u do need an attorney, this is a "no-brainier!" Troy u da man and thank u again

My experience with Troy was nothing less than superb. He is responsive, gives incredibly sound advice and truly cares about his clients. He is also very professional and steps you through every aspect of the process while helping you understand things that may be confusing to a non-attorney.
I would highly recommend Troy to anyone that needed criminal defense help.

This law firm was recommended to me through a good friend in Texas. My son attends an IVY League university. He grew up overseas and had the privilege to attend an American Embassy High School. Even though he is in college at a prominent university, since he is a third culture kid, in many ways he is still quite naïve.
My son flew out to California to visit a friend from his university. Just after just being in a major city for a few hours, found himself in a challenging predicament.
This law firm was very helpful to my son. Our family is grateful to their prompt, kind, professional service rendered to our son. The lawyer who handled my son’s case wrote, “I am so happy to report that we were able to get your case DISMISSED. We are as thrilled as you are with this excellent result.”
After using this firm, I highly recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in a difficult situation. We were very fortunate and wish this firm much success!

I'm so glad I took a chance with Troy! I mean, yes, with a myriad of great reviews you would think it easy to choose him. But I'm a skeptic and I don't make any huge decisions solely based on online reviews. However, one conversation with Troy was all it took. He was the first lawyer I called, and the last one I called after many others. Troy is truly knowledgeable in his field and tells you everything you need to know and more. He kept me updated, confident, and best of all.. he got my DUID case DISMISSED. No convictions at all. Trust in these reviews! Thank you SO much, Troy!! You are the man.

My very close friend Cesar has been going through some legal issues lately an I've watched him damn near rip his hair out the last few months. With help from Troy Slaten he is more at ease. If I ever got into some legal troubles I would definitely call Troy @ FS&K.
Trust me it's well worth it!

Troy Slaten has helped me in a couple cases. His overall knowledge of the law is admirable to say the least. He always manages to get my charges dropped to the minimal amount and keeps my case from going to trial. Troy is ALWAYS there to answer my calls and communicate to me what is going on with my cases. The way Troy enters a court room and makes it his own; even in a random city, leaves me speechless. He is a truly personable individual

Troy has helped me multiple time's and has the most unbelievable knowledge of the legal system. I'm a foreigner so it's often hard to understand the changing daily laws..I think he's got a photographic memory. I've been seeking advice from Troy for over 3 years and he has always been super prompt and reliable. He got my case dismissed and has often answered question's over the years I have about other things. I have recommended several other friends and he has also had their cases dismissed.
Troy was recommended to me by a friend that works in the legal system, he's super nice and friendly, knows the people in the courts and about every court in LA and what their laws are. Super good value for money too, I rang several others but no one had the obvious charm/intelligence or knowledge of the legal system....it's obvious why he works magic in the court room. I also rang a lawyer that represents a major celebrity and he even recommended Troy - for the price and knowledge no one is better.

I was pretty much in a bind and luckily my Dads boss knew troy he owed her a favor. Now i was thinking that while it's great to have a lawyer, i had a strong sense that he was simply going to go through the motions and barely back me up. Like i said he represented me out of a favor, so it was free.
Well as it turns out he fought for me very intensely. I can understand what Marshel is talking about now from How I Met Your Mother. It's great to lawyer up and Troy is an amazing guy. You get the sense that this guy does his job because it's his calling, not because of the status associated with being a lawyer.
Anyways due to my problems being erased that is Troy is a legend

If not for one item at the very end of working with Troy, this review would have been another glowing testimonial. We hired Troy for the criminal portion of a DUI charge when we realized that our initial attorney was not good in front of a judge. Troy was bright, knowledgeable, articulate, and we were very pleased with his representation. Unlike the previous person, he worked with us leveraging both blood testing and an investigator which allowed us to get all alcohol related charges dropped. We opted not to go to trial to fight the one remaining issue of reckless driving, and as he would not be spending time in court, Troy offered to send a request off to the DMV to correct their records as well. After not hearing anything, I reached out to Troy via email and he replied that he had not yet heard back from the DMV. More time passed, and I asked to get a copy of the letter he had sent, so that we would have a basis to follow up. He responded that he would send us a copy of the letter he had sent when he got back in town. That never happened, and he just stopped responding to my follow-up emails. I got no response at all back for an extended period of time until I copied the Senior partner on a subsequent request. At that point, Troy did send a reply but never admitted to having committed to us to contact the DMV. That was despite the fact that my communication included his emails in which he indicated that he had already done so! The problem for us was that we trusted that he had taken the action, so bottom line, nothing got done. We would have been much better off had he just been truthful in admitting that he had not, and didn't intend to contact the DMV on our behalf. We would have known then, to pursue other avenues. This, unfortunately, speaks to the critical issue of trust.
