Whether it is helping a client out with a DUI or criminal matter, I get engulfed in the work to provide great service and keep communications with my clients open to answer questions and keep them posted about progress along the way.

Sincerely,  Phil Hache

Phil is on top of his game.
I was in a tough position when I first contacted Phil. I was facing 2 different charges, including a DUI. After discussing my case with several attorneys on the phone, I just had a feeling that Phil was the best guy for the job. And I was right. He was able to get my DUI charge dismissed while the DA was claiming she had a slam dunk case against me. He did not stop there. He goes the extra mile for his clients and does his research before making any decisions. The DA even said said she has not seen any attorney as prepared as Phil in the court before. I lucked out finding Phil because he is a man of his word and he will fight for you. He knows DUI law like the back of his hand. Do not go to other lawyers as they will not put as much effort as Phil does into his cases. Stand up individual who will always get you the best result possible. Phil even keeps up to date with new laws, so much so he is usually more knowledgeable about the law than the DA. So stop worrying and hire Phil and I can promise that you will be in good hands.

Criminal defense
Excellent service. Phil has not only met but exceeded my expectations. I was involved in a matter in which another attorney had represented me. It stagnated in continuances for one year, and minimal (if any) work was ever accomplished. The one and only instance of contact I had received was after I threatened state BAR intervention. After this debacle, I retained Mr. Hache. Phil had been excellent on keeping me abreast with my case. Not only did he vehemently represent me, he managed to secure a much more favorable outcome than I had expected. Phil was easy to contact--never once avoiding a phone call--and answered all questions clearly and competently. His proficiency in law, as demonstrated in his practice, is simply second to none. Five stars is not enough.

1000% RECOMMEND
Phil is the man! I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs help. He is very good at his job and will work hard for the best possible outcome. I was having a really bad day that made me act out of character which led to the worse day I ever expericened that I would regret for the rest of my life. I was facing serious felonies and misdemeanor charges of a maximum of 30 years in prison. The moment I met him during the consultation I felt confidant that he would be trustworthy of handling my case. Phil is a down to earth person that spent alot of time and effort on my case, I owe this man the world as he was able to help me avoid serious felony charges along with avoiding any jail or prison time. I am very happy with the results Phil gave me, I couldn't imagine any other attoreny working as hard as Phil did.

He was my lawyer
Phil did a great job at helping me with my law matter. He handled things personally for me and he always was there for me when I needed anything. He always was there to answer my questions and he put a lot of effort into solving my matter. I was so happy to have him as my lawyer and I would definitely recommend him.

Look no further!
From day one, Phil was very clear with potential outcomes in my case, giving no false pretenses his honesty, and the faith I had in him were proven to be valid very quickly. He fought hard for me, found a solution with four felony counts and continued to show up with the judge to get unprecedented results and with his expertise and persistence, was able to get me graduated from my diversion (that he was able to settle) a year early and for that I will forever be eternally grateful. This was an investment in myself and family that was worth every penny and more.

WELL DONE
Do not go to a DMV hearing without Philip Hache by your side. Philip assisted me with a DMV matter based on an alleged negligent operator issue. He led me smoothly through the process to victory. Without his direction I would have been floundering with far less chance of a positive outcome. I will be forever thankful for his guidance over the months leading up to the conclusion of my case

If you want the best legal defense call Phil!
This is the second time Phil has helped me. This time I had a delicate situation with multiple variables. I remember how much Phil had helped me before! Although this was a harder case, I knew he was the attorney for the job. I was amazed at the results that Phil was able to produce. The defense was at a stand still, and Phil immediately began producing subpeona after subpeona. There were times Phil did not even have to obtain documents, assist legally, give consultations, but did anyways. I will say this lawyer goes above and beyond other legal defense because he is passoniate about what he does. Everytime we went to court and observers saw Phil in action, there would be about 5 people asking for his card. This is an attorney who will go to bat for you no matter the circumstances. He will be practical, but is not afraid to roll up his sleeves and get to work. If you want the best legal defense money can buy, better call Phil!

Stellar attorney in LA
My case was complicated by the fact that my neighbor used a restraining order to harass me so there was an emotional toll that came with my case. Phil Hache not only did a stellar job as an attorney, but he was calm and supportive throughout the process. Phil is what a person needs going into a courtroom. He knows the law and exuded that confidence in the courtroom. He knows process and procedure and advised me accordingly. And on top of all that, he offered that personal support that made me feel I wasn't alone going into court with some gun for hire. Phil was not only successful in getting my case dismissed, but he also secured restitution for me. I am grateful I had him as my attorney.

DUI Case
Phil did an amazing job on my case, Throughout many months Phil kept in contact with me and worked with a second attorney I have to resolve this case. He was always giving me great advice throughout my case and would break down my options and explain everything thoroughly, any questions I had were always answered and ultimately Phil was able to fight and win the best outcome we hoped for, Phil did an amazing job and I highly recommend him.

The only traffic attorney you will ever need....
A little embarrassing for me but as it seems I get traffic violations often. My go-to attorney is Mr. Hache every time! I speak to him directly and I appreciate that he is upfront, honest and clear about everything. When I hear others going through a tough situation I immediately pass along Mr. Hache's number because I know he will help to the best of his legal knowledge and abilities.

Great lawyer who helped me get the ticket dismissed
Attorney Hache is great to work with. He makes sure that we are on the same page, keeps me updated on the case and that I am personally happy with his strategy. He always responds to my phone calls. Mine was a driving over 100mph case and I didn't expect the ticket to be dismissed to be honest. I was mostly hoping for a lesser impact on the insurance premium, but Attorney Hache was able to dismiss the ticket completely and I am so happy that I have chosen him as my lawyer.

Excellent
I hired Philip Hache to defend me on a misdemeanor case. He did a great job for me and was able to get my misdemeanor offense reduced to an infraction. There was no jail time or probation as a result. He then was able to get that infraction dismissed. Along the way he was communicative with me and answered questions that I had. I highly recommend him if you or someone you know is arrested for a criminal offense.

Phil, I can't thank you enough for the work you put in to get the information needed from me and the extra effort you put in to push my case across the finish line. After 3 years of BS I'll be able to function as the normal productive citizen I've always been!

Dui case
Philip did an amazing job and working with me and making sure to win the court and dmv case. He went above and beyond on making sure that we did everything possible to win anything that was thrown our way. He was really responsive and made sure to keep in the loop of everything that was going on. I would recommend this lawyer to anyone that is going through a difficult time. He treats you with respect and understand how stressful it is going through this process. Thank you for everything you did and will make sure to tell anyone I know that ever gets into a situation like mine to go to Philip!
