If you're in a bad situation do NOT call anyone else but The Foxx Firm.

Best criminal lawyer in LA county
Freddy Sayegh handled my brothers drug case, he got him no jail time he kept his word. Mr Sayegh gave him the best defense, he fought hard for our family to make sure my brothers case got dismissed. We can't thank him enough.

The Man
I have dealt with other attorneys in the past. All of them took advantage of the situation. My Sayegh is , HANDS DOWN, the best attorney in the biz, I never ever had any doubt with his representation. If you really want someone who will go the extra mile and fight for you, you found that person here.

Foxx Firm always available always reliable
time and time again the Foxx Firm is there for me. As a musician and record company owner there are millions of questions, miles of paper and situations that need serious attention and the Foxx Firm has always been there on the drop of a dime. With or without an appointment when i show up the staff is friendly and accommodating helping the pass the time till i can be seen in a timely matter. All in all i would recommend the Foxx Firm for your legal needs.

Thank you Freddy and The Foxx Firm team!
On a personal level.. I cant thank Freddy enough for his dedication to my family's issues. I became privy to Freddy by word of mouth from a friend and I'm so glad I took her word on this. Freddy initially helped me with a DUI case that had the potential to turn really ugly and his knowledge in the field definitely saved my rear. during one of my visits to his office I met a recording artist who had nothing but wonderful things to say about their entertainment law knowledge and support, so I referred The Foxx Firm to my nephew who uses them for his own business ventures in event management and the last time i spoke with him.. he expressed his appreciation for my bringing Freddy to his attention and how he feels he's stepped up his business " big time". so i cant express enough how grateful i am for Freddy and his team. I refer everyone I know with legal issues to these guys!

As a new attorney I have had the privilege of leaning and cutting my teeth in the world of Criminal Law under his guidance and supervision. Freddy’s knowledge and professionalism is of the highest caliber. He handles all of his clients with care and compassion, providing them with the best defense possible. He is always available to help me whenever I am in need both in and out of the courtroom. It has been an honor working for Freddy and The Foxx Firm. I endorse this lawyer."

"Fahed is well-versed in the law and how it applies in the criminal context. I refer criminal cases to him and he does not disappoint. I highly recommend him."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 09
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Freddy is one of the most professional and knowledgeable attorneys I have met. His passion for his work and providing the best available defense for his clients is one of Freddy's most valuable traits. In the courtroom, Freddy is a zealous advocate for his clients. Furthermore, Freddy is always available by phone and is always on hand to answer any questions his clients may have. He always makes sure the clients are aware of the status of their case. Any work put forth by Freddy is impeccable and respectful."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 09
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer for his knowledge in all aspects of the Criminal Law Defense field/area. I'm especially impressed with his successful defense of parties/defendants who have been falsely accused. I was witness to Freddy helping a young man who was falsely accused of First Degree Murder. With Freddy's help the case against the young man was dismissed."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 09
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Freddy is a tenacious and fierce attorney. He fights hard for his clients and has produced some unbelievable results for some of my clients. He is my go to guy for criminal issues."
Criminal defense Attorney | Sep 04
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"Freddy is well-versed in all aspects of litigation, from the filing of a complaint to trial. Just as important, Freddy does not lose sight of the big picture. When handling a case, he takes into consideration all aspects of a client's goals and resources. By taking such an approach, Freddy is often able to settle cases before trial or outside of the court system altogether, saving valuable time and money for the client. Freddy is an expert negotiator and speaker and is able obtain substantial settlements for clients where previous lawyers were unable to obtain anything at all. In criminal defense matters, Freddy zealously advocates for his client's rights. His laid-back style out of the courtroom allows clients to feel relaxed and "at home" during a difficult time. In the courtroom, Freddy is strictly business. His hard-hitting examinations of adversarial witnesses and vast knowledge of the law allow him to exonerate clients facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles."
