Saved my life.
As the title reads, Richard has saved my life. At first, I had worries as he had issues showing up the court at the times specified but this had also been my first time in trouble. It was also understandable as it was quite a trek for from Irvine. He has also been doing this to know that the court systems are quite slow. The end result of my PC290 case was a DEJ that ended in a dismissal of the case. This was probably one of the few PC290 cases that ended in this result. He was always available for contact and continued to do his job even during times of sickness as well as during family vacations. Sometimes it took leaving a message but he will return your call as soon as he is available. He mentioned at the beginning of all of my case that "you get what you pay for". Despite being more expensive than other lawyers, he still gave me quite a deal as he had seen how young I was. It was quite a deal for how much work he had done. The pre-trial lasted nearly a year and I am glad it's finally over. I would gladly pay for this lawyer again. For obvious reasons, I will be leaving this review anonymous.

Red Light Hero
Richard Grant got me out of a seemingly impossible Red Light Ticket, all the way out in Riverside County. I had him as an attorney for a failure to appear 2 years ago, and he did a great job then as well. Twice Richard Grant has gotten me out of hot water, with the California Justice System, and twice he's saved me from losing my license. Thank you!

Best choice if you get pulled over
Richard was great. Within a week my misdemeanor traffic ticket was reduced to just a traffic ticket. Months later, it was reduced to traffic school. My client had a bench warrant for not showing up to court. Richard made the whole thing go away, not even traffic school in his case.

He made everything super simple for me!
All I did was sit down in his office and he took care of the rest and made sure to have my case dismissed. Really happy with the results. Amazing work!

Save me so much money over the years
Between my five kids and I, we have had several speeding tickets over the years. Fortunate for us, we have been represented by Richard Grant who has been able to get our tickets downgraded or outright removed. The latest case would have cost my son his license for at least year, but Mr. Grant was able to have the charges dropped. I can't even imagine how much money he saves me every month in insurance costs! I highly recommend him.

Best Possible Legal Outcomes
Mr. Grant represented me on a DUI case. I was just over the legal limit and Mr. Grant was able to get the least adjudication for my case. He was crystal clear on what I needed to do to comply with the conditions of my 18-month probation and ensured I sent him all the paperwork for the conditions I fulfilled. Finally, Mr. Grant succeeded in obtaining the best possible outcomes for my case: early dismissal; expungement; and dismissal of my charges. It was abundantly clear from my few times in court with Mr. Grant that he had very good working relationships with district attorney staff by meeting with them before an judgements were passed. This was an important asset in ensuring the best possible probation conditions and case outcomes. A job well done!

Richard Lewis representation review
Richard Grant represented me on a speeding citation. Mr Grant exceeded my expectations and always seemed to have a good understanding of the complications that this violation could have incurred since I live out of state. He was very attentive to my predicament and he personally saw my case all the way through.

Most Exceptional Job!!
Most exceptional job from Mr. Grant. I hired Mr. Grant as my lawyer to fight an 80mph Anaheim speeding ticket i had pending. He fought and won my case, leaving me with no point on my record. Because of Mr. Grant's great work, i decided to rehire him as my lawyer to fight another pending (101mph) speeding ticket from El Centro. He drove 200 miles to attend my 10am trial in El Centro. We met there and attended the trial since he was representing me. He guided and prepared me before the trial and he took care of the rest during the trial. I said not one word the entire trial. Before i knew it, the judge dismissed my $1000 fine, two points on my record and a 30 day suspended license. No words can describe how thankful I am with Mr. Grant. He did an impeccable job and I was there to witness his honest and professional work. I highly highly recommend this lawyer. Do not get turned down by his upfront fee. He will expect for you to pay the full amount upfront. I payed $400 for the Anaheim case and $1000 for the El Centro case (200 mile drive included). Thank you once again Mr. Grant!!!

Traffic Tickets Killer
Excellent lawyer!!! Beyond all the great characters he has, he helped me to get out of the 115+ speed traffic ticket!!! My case was dismissed on Nov 20, 2012. I was very pleased in the outcome of my case where I was able to avoid any License Suspension, DMV Points, Fines, and Insurance Increase. He made the magic happened! He is your best bid if you want to get out of those scary traffic tickets! Call him (949-637 3832).

Richard Grant went above & beyond my expectations. I live in OC, CA & recently got a DUI. I was stopped by the CHP & blew an .08. Well here in CA they don't take DUI's lightly. I was also on felony probation I got on the internet, typed "talk to a lawyer", & the website AVVO came up. 30 minutes after finding, registering, asking questions, & leaving my phone #, Richard Grant called, it was a Sat. he met me in his office, within 1 hour,I knew I was on my way out of mess, He fought to get a "wet & reckless" & succeeded.My family & I thank you for all you've done.Excellent JOB! Theres not enough space here to leave all the review

Handled it
Richard did what he promised and handled the case which eliminated stress and worry. Without discussing details of the citation, he was able to get the most expensive item dropped and extended our time period to pay the reduced fine. I was able to focus on my business rather than preparing to defend our company. Thanks Richard!
