I have been a lawyer for 46 years and I am a former prosecutor. I live on the East Coast, and when my adult son got arrested in Torrance, I wanted the very best lawyer for him. I screened the profiles of more than 100 criminal attorneys, and together my son and I interviewed six over the telephone. Jerome was the last, and as soon as we hung up we knew he was the one we wanted. He inspired tremendous confidence, which he justified repeatedly over the course of the matter.
Attorney Haig is very professional and courteous and obviously well respected by both judges and prosecutors. He is extremely bright, knowledgeable and experienced. He told us at the outset that the case should ultimately be dismissed, but the DA didn’t see it that way and stubbornly clung to his position for many months. Ultimately the case was dismissed as a direct result of Jerome‘s expertise, tenacity and persistence.
We were obviously pleased with the results, but as a bonus I learned a lot from Jerome about being an effective lawyer. He is extremely compassionate. It wasn’t long before I realized that as much as he cared about the case, he cared equally about my son’s well-being. Having been a prosecutor myself, I had lots of questions and opinions. Jerome was patient, thorough and prompt in responding to my inquiries. He is also extremely honest and charged a very reasonable fee.
If you ever need a criminal defense attorney in LA, save yourself the time of asking around or screening online profiles. Just call Jerome Haig and know that you made a great choice.
