Super helpful
She was super helpful and responded quickly, I was able to speak to her directly rather than deal with a secretary. I’d definitely recommend her.

Amazing attorney
Sonia is not the type of lawyer that signs you in and then you can’t find her or talk to her and in fact, she is the one constantly calling you and keep you updated of the case and when you email her, instantly you get reply and she is great in what she does. I will be her client for life and so will anyone I know I would refer to her only.

Simply cannot best
Got into trouble after a long night of just hanging out with friends. Sonia was the 5th lawyer I called. She spent an hour on the phone without harrassing me to come into the office. I knew she was the one. She handled my case perfectly. She is the best.

Saved by Sonia
Sonia helped me clear up a possession charge that I got in Hollywood. First time I've had to deal with something like this. Sonia took the time to explain everything to me. I really had no idea how serious it was. Sonia took care of everything and I am very happy.

The perfect lawyer
Hired Sonia for a DUI I got in Van Nuys. I got pulled over for a bogus reason. Sonia took over and saved my license and got me a decent outcome considering.

Outstanding!
I was in a lot of trouble with my 2nd DUI arrest. I called a lot of lawyers and all they wanted was me to come into their office. Sonia spent a good amount of time on the phone with me before proceeding. She really wanted to understand my case before moving forward. She got me a fair outcome I highly recommend.

DUI Queen
I hired Sonia after being charged with a DUI. It turned out to be one of the worst places to get one, Ventura county. Sonia was amazing and got me a great deal. I highly recommend not getting arrested where I got arrested, but if you do have the same misfortune hired Sonia.

I hire Sonia to represent me in an assault case that was completely false. She listened, took notes, and fought hard to get me a great outcome. I highly recommend here!
