I AM A FORMER DEPUTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY NOW ON YOUR SIDE. I WILL FIGHT FOR YOUR CASE UNTIL THE END.

I have been practicing criminal law for over twenty three years now.  Before I opened my law firm, I was a deputy district attorney in Orange County for almost six years.  During that time, I prosecuted thousands of criminal cases.  Before I was a d.a., I clerked at the District Attorney's Office as well as for civil law firms.  I also clerked for a congressman in Washington D.C. 

 

I only practice criminal defense, which means all of my focus and devotion is on helping those who have been arrested and or charged with a crime. I believe everyone is entitled to a vigorous and dedicated defense, and will pursue this goal until justice is served.  I look forward to fighting for you and handling your case.

Best Lawyer Ever!
I was in a DUI collision and was scared and did not know what to do. I was referred to Jennifer Le by my mom’s friend and she gladly took my case. I’ve never felt so reassured that my case was in good hands and that I have someone who took my case seriously. She helped me reduce my felony to a simple dui. The case took a very long time and even after paying what I was due to her, she still continued fighting. I couldn’t be more happy with my outcome because of Jennifer, hence why she’s the best lawyer!! Highly recommend and will 100% refer anyone who needs an amazing lawyer like her.

A happy client !
My case in particular was very complicated due to unforeseen circumstances . Being a client of Jennifer has been truly a positive experience . She is immensely kind and friendly, and always took the time to explain every details and answer any questions that I had . Jennifer’s due diligence in my case is also admirable . I am extremely pleased with the outcome, thanks to her dedication and patience throughout the whole process. I would highly refer anyone to Jennifer if you’re in need of legal assistance !

Sales Case & Possession of Dangerous Weapon DISMISSED!
Back in Oct. 2019 i was charged with possession w/ intent to sell (drugs). Then In 2020 i caught a separate case for possession of dangerous weapon. DA waited a long time to file the case. Today is September 29, 2022 & Jennifer got both of my cases to be dismissed. I remember looking through every criminal defense attorney, reading every review and portfolios… Let me save you a ton of time & stress. Jennifer got both my charges dismissed. I called her right when I got released before the DA even filed the charges & from day 1 she was already making calls for me. Jennifer always kept it 100 and never sugar coated anything. She was kind enough to let me make payments as well. If you are looking for a confident, strong, & experienced attorney, then call her! She found a way when I thought their was no way possible. Thank you Jennifer!

Jennifer is a Guardian Angel by my side.
My case is a bit of a complex Criminal Charge where I started out as the victim, but after the fact, charges were brought against me. Initially a Detective contacted me a week and change after certain events occurred under the guise of asking me to bring in some paperwork to “get this misunderstanding all cleared up”. It was at this time I decided to contact an attorney for legal advice before proceeding. Jennifer came highly recommended as an experienced attorney versed on all sides of the legal system. Once she heard my story she advised me not to speak to the detective again and that she would handle all communication on-going. She contacted the detective and let him know she would be representing me and that I would be cooperative within my legal rights. The detective feigned a gentlemen’s promise to work with me thru Jennifer, however, Jennifer warned me that he COULD and MAY try to pull something underhanded even so he had offered his word. It was a few days later, which coincidentally happened to be the Friday before Christmas, the detective decided to show up at my apartment with a walk-in warrant. I wasn’t home thankfully and was able to get in contact with Jennifer immediately, at which point she set up plans for me to walk into court the day after Christmas and post bail from the bench without ever being arrested (there is no arrest on my record). Thanks to Jennifer I did not have to spend Christmas in a cold cell, and instead surrouned the warmth and comfort of my family. From here on Jennifer has fielded numerous calls, texts, emails, and even office visits from me to placate my need for reassurance. I have a medical history of severe panic/anxiety attacks which have only been exacerbated by this legal battle, while Jennifer has always responded with unbridled empathy. There were times when she spent upwards of an hour on the phone with me as well as in person in her office to adequately address any/all of my concerns. Thru out a constantly evolving case Jennifer has been a resilient, account-for-any-and-all-options attorney. She never guaranteed a specific outcome, rather she laid out all of the possibilities and fortified my defense with a plan of action for each accordingly. I don’t mean just one plan, I mean plan A, B, C… Z Another highlight: Thru out the long legal process, I had the rude awakening of realizing you really are NOT innocent until proven guilty, as I had to deal with pending charges showing up on background checks for employment. Jennifer drafted a letter detailing my predicament and even offered to speak directly with HR if that wasn't enough. It was enough for HR to issue a waiver and I got the job even so I was facing charges. Thank you Jennifer for bring the razor's edge to my defense coupled with the solace of human compassion.

Excellent and Professional service
Ms Le handled my case with professionalism and integrity. She managed to get my Misdemeanor expunged promptly and effectively. I would highly recommend and I am only gutted she wasn’t my attorney on the initial proceedings.

Thanks Jennifer!
Jennifer Le was a great choice for me and my future. She helped me with my case and I now have the confidence to pursue the path I want to pursue. I have personally seen my investment in Jennifer pay off. Ultimately, I got the job I wanted to get which is the result I wanted. She reduced my felonies into misdemeanors. I had quite a few felonies. It can be tough and daunting not knowing what will become of all the effort put into seeking and obtaining employment while having certain charges on your background. What really matters is that we make the effort and do not give up. Jennifer will be a great resource in terms of questions and I know she will do a great job on her end. She absolutely did on my end.

Great Service
Jennifer was referred to me by a friend and I am glad I was in contact with her. She’s great, honest and walks you through everything step by step. This was my first time doing anything court related/criminal related so I needed all the help I could get. Plus I didn’t live in the area so it was great to not have to show up to the courts or do anything myself. Jennifer did everything for me and then updated me. I was warned beforehand so I wasn’t shocked when I noticed Jennifer is a busy person. Leaving text messages or voicemails are super helpful if you ever need anything from Jennifer.

Very knowledgeable and experienced
Jennifer Le was recommended by cousin. I was going through a case that could potentially damage my reputation and current job situation. In my consolation with Jennifer, she walked me through the process and the involvement I needed for my case. My court visits were left to court were minimal (I went to court twice) and did not have to miss much work. Due to her experiences and knowledge of these types of cases, I ended up taking anger management classes and doing community service. It took over one year for the end result, but she turned my serious situation to my charges getting dismissed. I highly recommend Jennifer Le for legal representation for any criminal defense.

Amazing lawyer
I hired Jennifer Diem-Trang Le for an assault and battery charge .tho the charges were very serious Jennifer really took the time to listen to me and get to know what type of person I really am ,she treated me with respect and treated me like a human being without judgment. After many discussions with Jennifer I learned how smart ,intelligent,and very sweet .Jennifer is so nice and really cares about her clients . Jennifer is very direct and confident and definitely makes her presence known everywhere she goes she is an exceptional human being who I trusted to handle my case . Putting my trust in her was worth every bit of trust and money .my case was dismissed and am now changing my life for the better and doing really well in life thanks to Jennifer Le and her support. I would highly recommend attorney Jennifer Diem-Trang Le to anyone seeking an honest fair and aggressive attorney who will actually take the time to care about your case whatever the circumstances may be …

Patient, Understanding, & Intelligent
One of my family members suffered a psychotic break and ended up in county jail. She had the dedication and professionalism to go to the courthouse everyday until the jail would produce my brother. She went everyday for over 6 weeks. When we finally got in contact with my brother, she was able to convince him of cooperating, which is a big milestone itself since most people suffering from psychological breaks may not be receptive to help from a stranger. When she would discuss the legal strategies, you can tell she's very experienced and knowledgeable. She made sure to explain all the questions I had regarding the strategy and the legal system. It's hard enough to manage a family member and their mental health, let alone their pending court case, but she was kind enough to help me manage my immediate family and their misconcieved understanding of both mental healthcare and the law. Most professionals would dismiss it as not their problems, but not Jennifer. Like I said, kind and smart. It's a good professional combination.

Amazing Lawyer, Stop your search
I ran into some issues in 2019 for something stupid, Jennifer walked me through the entire court process to put me at ease and took care of the entire thing herself. I didn’t have to go to court, my fines and sentences were reduced, and everything was handled quickly, despite covid happening at the same time. I was honestly really impressed because in my situation nothing should have been reduced, but she made the court understand my situation and helped me in a huge way, both with my money and time. I’m writing this review now because I recently got mail that I had a warrant due to something I thought I had submitted not making it to the court, I texted her on a sunday and she answered and made sure to tell me what to do and bring and say in court to fix the issue. When I went to court it was astonishing how unprepared people were, even someone’s attorney showed up unprepared, but since I had called Jennifer I wasn’t and it was handled I kid you not within 3 minutes of seeing the judge. She’s honest and blunt about your situation and will handle it efficiently. She doesn’t judge you whatsoever which I also think is really important and helped put me at ease. I would definitely recommend her.

What a great lawyer to work with.
I contacted Ms.Jennifer regarding my Lagan matter. She not only help me out with a clean game plan, she also make it very straightforward and clear how we proceed with the process. Jennifer also great in communication and great as my language since I don’t speak English that fluently. She also update to me everything happen on my legal matter so I can get a clear picture of what’s going on with the situation. Overall she was a great lawyer to deal with and I have a pleasant experience with her.
