I am a 26-year veteran of criminal defense and civil litigation.  I have been a prosecutor and handled very serious white collar federal and Attorney General, statewide jurisdiction cases.  Similarly, I have handled commercial and other basic and complex civil litigation from a consumer protection prosecution brought by the state Attorney General and the Sacramento District Attorney against a large corporate client.  I have been a top member of trial teams involving large law firm partners.  I am the aggressive attorney you want to shield you from the government or others coming after you or your business.

Complex Divorce Case
I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the services Mr. Taub provided me during my divorce proceedings. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Taub demonstrated an unwavering commitment to my case and always provided me with practical legal advice. His attention to details and ability to navigate the EXTREMELY COMPLEX issues of my case resulted in a favorable outcome for me. I am grateful for his professionalism, kindness, and patience as he worked with me to resolve this matter. I definitely felt protected during such a challenging time! Mr. Taub became as a Father in the Family Law! Special THANK YOU to the Ladies in his team for support and organization they provided! I was blessed that I was able to find him at the right moment.

Ventura County DUI
Richard Taub did an amazing job for me on a Ventura County DUI. Ventura County is known for throwing the book at First Time DUI offenders like me. I was involved in an accident and I blew over .15 which was two enchantments. The DA wanted me to do 5 days in Jail as well as all fines, Probation, lengthy alcohol school, Community Service etc. Richard was able to reach a plea deal in which I was given time served for the 15 hours I spent in Jail and a reduction of my time for the alcohol school. In addition, zero Community Service work and the fines were marginal. His price was more than fair and he returned all of my retainer that was not used. Richard is a top notch Criminal Defense attorney that has the respect of the DA's which really helped me get a very favorable pea. I could not be happier with my result.

Richard Taub and team recently represented a family member of mine in a sensitive legal matter where they were the victim. Working with Taub & Taub was as good as it gets when you or a family member are in an unfortunate position which requires retaining legal help. Richard and his team were professional, responsive and highly empathetic to the situation my family member was in. The end result was exactly what we were looking for and they helped resolve the matter significantly quicker than either of us expected. Thank you!

Restraining Order Expert
From our initial phone conversation, till the last day (2 months later) when we won both of my cases, Mr. Richard Taub was professional, a wonderful communicator, with a great staff and he actually cared to win. I was always confident he knew what steps to take and trusted he would not let me down. I highly recommend Taub & Taub!

Rescued; from Long Beach
I was facing 7 years for concentrating cannabis into Hash Oil & Wax. Not only did Richard Taub get me just probation, he was able to carve out my medical marijauna licence allowing me to posess up to one ounce of marijauna while on probation for my medical needs. I thought I was going to prison and going to lose my medical licence but thanks to Mr. Taub

From our initial phone conversation and continuing...
Prior to speaking with Mr. Taub, I was reluctant to hire an attorney regarding an uncomfortable legal matter. Every attorney I had spoken with previously asked the same question, "How much do you want to get out of this?". Their first and foremost interest was their profit and if I or the other individual in the suit had enough money to make it worth their time. I had become willing to accept the unfair treatment and financial burden I had experienced relating to my legal matter, just to avoid an environment such as this. Upon my first conversation with Mr. Taub, and continuing since, he has shown patience with my lack of legal knowledge, sensitivity when asking uncomfortable questions and a genuine and unexpected understanding of my personal financial situation. His solid knowledge and integrity, along with his aggressive approach to working for his client's best interest, have given me the confidence to pursue the many options his firm has offered me. I look forward to posting another review when this legal matter is concluded, as I am confident the outcome will be more than satisfactory. (Oh, and his staff is great, too!)

Mr. Taub is a criminal defense expert. He really knew how to follow up with every possible issue in my case. He knew most of the law affecting my case intuitively and was able to quickly reserach anything he didn't know offhand. I have hired several lawyers in the past and I have never seen a lawyer that was so good at what he does, that communicated constantly with me, was polite to me, and knew when to attack or growl and the other side. I now have an appreciation for what lawyers do and it isn't easy. However, I can appreciate that Mr. Taub has all of the qualities that anyone would want in a lawyer. Hire this one!
