I hired Mr. Haushalter when I was falsely accused of a very serious and heinous felony I did not commit. Unfortunately Mark Haushalter came on board as my attorney only after my previous attorney had completely botched my whole case and pretrial hearing.
With my future literally hanging in the balance I did copious research online until I found Mark Haushalter of Okabe and Haushalter. Although Mark Haushalter's legal ratings and reputation are among the highest, they barely do him justice. I called Mr. Haushalter on a Saturday morning around 7:00AM to leave a message and convey the urgency of my case, fully expecting a call back on Monday morning. I was shocked when he not only called me back within 10 minutes but agreed to meet me that same morning.
I met with Mark, told him the facts and details of my case and he immediately began constructing a proactive, aggressive plan of defense.
I have never been arrested for, or convicted of anything. I have a completely clean record, but apparently once a case goes past the pretrial it is almost invariably too late to procure a complete dismissal. That being said, Mark Haushalter and his team worked brilliantly. I passed a Polygraph exam which was certified by not one, not two, but three separate agencies; including the L.A County Sheriffs and the LAPD. I took a battery of psychological tests and evaluations, the results of which were all very positive. They brought in an unparalleled and highly respected and credentialed investigator who along with Mark's team completely disassembled and effectively refuted the entire case against me.
I was facing a felony conviction, 10 years in state prison and lifetime registration. My previous attorney had advised me to accept the DA's initial offer of felony conviction, lifetime registration with no prison time.
Mark Haushalter and his team at Okabe and Haushalter got the DA to reduce the charges to simple misdemeanor battery, summary probation and community service.
There is no doubt in my mind that if I had come to Mr. Haushalter from the very beginning, instead of relying on a family recommendation for the other attorney, all charges would have been dropped and the case dismissed.
Mark Haushalter saved my life. I could not recommend him more highly. If you need an attorney, hire the very best: Mark Haushalter of Okabe and Haushalter.
