Difficult times
I was arrested on 2 felony charges Mr. Sieden and his team were able get the charges reduced to a misdemeanor that was later expunged. He was very aggressive in dealing with the prosecutor and was respected by the judge. My expungement was granted in 6 weeks while most expungements take 6 to 9 months . I have been able to get my life back on track thanks to Mr. Seiden. I would recommend Mr. Seiden to anyone that is facing difficult times

Amazing Lawyer!
Mr. Steven Seiden, Chris Williams, and Beatrice, I am beyond thankful to you for working on my case. Although many popular attorneys refused to work on my case (since it was hard for them ), you did it very professionally, and we won the case because you did your best. During the court process, I received the most professional service from this law firm. I was informed and notified of every single detail related to my case. Mr. Seiden is a very powerful, confident and smart lawyer who knows how to handle each case, and his team finds a solution for seemingly unsolvable cases. Chris Williams absolutely amazed me by the knowledge he has (seems like all the criminal laws had been downloaded to his brain, so you will be assisted in no time ). If you are looking for a lawyer who is responsible and will do everything possible to help you out then got straight to Mr. Seiden or waste your time and money listening to other lawyers. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!!

The Best!
Mr. Seiden is a great attorney! He was recommended by a family member. He and his team are very reliable, thorough and essential to have in your corner if you're going through a serious case(s). Without going into detail, he helped my young brother fight 3 life sentences and now my brother has a second chance at life! Although he is still serving some time and the retainer is pretty pricey, that is a small price to pay for my little brother's freedom who has his whole life ahead of him. My family and I highly recommend this law firm. Thank you Mr. Seiden, Chris and all other staff!

Best Criminal Attorney
Mr. Seiden, Mr. Williams, and staff could not have been more warm and reassuring during this frightening time. I first met Mr. Seiden and team ten years ago on a case where I was charged with three felonies and looking at sixteen years. Mr. Seiden got two of those felonies dropped and got me released on my own recognizance after being given a million dollar bail. I got time served and three years probation. Team later had my record expunged which gave me reassurance to start anew. I was blessed to have started my businesses and live life. I wish I could say our ten year reunion was on different circumstances. Mr. Seiden's legal services were needed August of 2015. I was falsely accused of Felony Battery after being beaten by LAPD Officers and Staples Center Security Guards. As much as this process was painful. humiliating, exhausting, and stressful, I knew I had the best legal team by my side. Mr. Seiden, Mr. Williams, and Beatrice were kind, patient, realistic, knowledgeable, and most importantly diligent. He and his team worked tirelessly in my representation, meeting multiple times with the D.A. to negotiate my charges. They kept me abreast of any changes or updates in my case, which was a godsend considering my livelihood was on the line here. I gave them full trust and confidence to represent me and they did incredibly well. After many months of negotiation, I can happily say Mr. Seiden got my Felony charge reduced to a Misdemeanor. After about a year of this madness, Mr. Seiden got my case dismissed. In other words, I was innocent! Now that this ugly episode is behind me, I can breathe a sigh of relief. I've learned so much over the last year, both Mr. Seiden and Mr. Williams were by my side every step of the way. The retainer is small price to pay for the peace of mind of knowing you have the best on your side. If any of my friends or family find themselves in a legal jam, Mr. Seiden is their man. He is the absolute best! Thank you so very much for your willingness to help and work with me during this difficult time in my life. Your financial flexibility allowed me the privilege of being represented by you and the very best legal defense team. There are not enough stars show how much I appreciate what he did for me. Thank you, Andrea Ugalde
