THE BEST ATTORNEY
Attorney Christopher Koch represented me in a case with three distinct charges that initially didn't appear could all be dismissed based on their nature but Attorney Koch was able to obtain dismissal for ALL charges. No one else will work for you as hard as attorney Koch. He maintained open communication throughout the span of the case and provided an affordable rate for representation. Being out of state, he was able to accommodate at all times for court appearance and not once did he require me to appear in court. He provided dedication, support, and transparency like no other. You will not regret hiring him!!! He's the BEST!!!

Have hired him twice.
I have used Chirs twice for both my dui's. He is affordable and willing to work on you with payments. I will admit he is hard to get a hold of in person but his secretary Norma is awesome. 1st time I used him i jad blown a .24 no accident involved, it was always someone else there handeling it and they were usually late. They did call it in to the courts but still had me worried. Got a 9 month program and a 2000 fine. No comunity service. Second time I used him, I blew a .17 and totalled my car into a edison pole. No one else involved. I was told I would have house arrest and community service. Was worried about doing house arrest since I work 12 hr days. This time i actually met Chris because he was handeling it and he was able to get me just the 18 month program and a 2400 fine. I highly recommend him. He saved my job by keeping me out of jail and not having to do house arrest.

Very Satisfied!!!!
I have been Christopher Koch's client for over 4 years. 2nd dui and a misd Assault. Both no jail and good terms. Most recent, I was arrested for PC 273.5(A) Inflict Corporal Injury/Spouse with GBI enhancement. Girlfriend and I had a heated argument with a large amount of alcohol consumed. Mutual combat and victim fell back and hit her head. No 911 call. Victim filed police report 4 days later. Cops come to my house and arrest me. I plead not guilty. Initial offer was 4 years state with a felony strike. Followed through TRC'S and negotiations. DA offered 6 months county with felony on record after preliminary hearing. At Prelim, victim invoked right to plead the 5th (right to not self-incriminate) Refused to sign immunity and refused to testify (with her attorney present). I pushed for jury trial. Christopher increased the pressure on the DA to settle. Trial date was confirmed, with no deal in sight. 5 days prior to Day1 of trial, Christopher negotiated a deal with DA to settle... All charges DISMISSED... Plead to PC M415(2) Misdameanor Malicious Disturb (Disturbing The Peace). Case will be dismissed after completion of 52-week domestic violence classes as part of the deal. Probation reinstated on two prior cases, pending traffic ticket (driving with suspended license and illegal turn on red) was also dismissed as part of the settlement. Christopher worked with me with this ordeal for a little under 1 year (arrested 4/30/2015, settled 4/12/2016). Christopher's fees were also great, does payments. I would recommend Christopher and his team to anyone who needs an impressive attorney with great connections. Insist on trial for any domestic violence incidents.

Happy Costumer
Helped me when I felt that no one could. Got me an excellent deal. Much better than I anticipated. I only ended up having to do 6 weeks of class instead of six or nine month program. Also lowered my fines substantially. If I need any legal representation ever again I will definitely come back.

My friend is from Qutar, we hired Chris Koch and Associates to handle a case. We were pleased with his customer service.
I would recommend Hiring The Koch Law Firm because if you are a world traveler or student and have a court case in the California then the firm can handle your court case while you are out of the country.

I have had a good experience with Christopher Koch and Associates. In 2012 I received a first time DUI, he represented me in Harbor Court, Orange County and was able to persuade the judge to drop the fines and also convert what fees were left over into house arrest and community service at the Newport Beach Elks club. Next, I have contacted Chris and requested he now get the charge expunged. I will post how that goes, as of yet everything is going as planned. Im a happy client, call Chriss to get a free quote, he's worth the money.

i would hire again if i ever got into trouble again
Christopher kosh was great at helping me lowering my fines to almost nothing and they where friendly when i called there office and told me everything that i wanted to know about, this really made me feel more relaxed about what was to come my way. even though they didnt take all the fines it was still close to nothing and still helped me out to pay all of my car payments instead of me selling my car.

Did a Great Job!
Chris Koch is a rare mix of professionalism and kindness in a lwayer. I had an arrest in Santa Ana and a subsequesnt issue, and he kept me out of jail, got me into a deferrement program, and kept it off my record.

Better call Chris!
Chris Koch and his staff were very professional, informative, and instraumental in helping me win my case and avoid a 2nd Dui. Not only were they able to get the initial charges dropped, but they kept me out of jail and got me off with just community service!

DO NOT HIRE!!!
Christopher was the worst mistake I ever made. He NEVER returns phone calls and has a automated text message that states that he is unavailable. He also has not set up a voicemail. Christopher made promised that never kept, and got me into more legal trouble by not responding to my case. Two years later, I had to hire another lawyer to repair that damage, or the lack of effort he made for my case. Spent money on a lawyer who did not care. Please be cautious before losing your money.

EXTREMELY unfair and and unprofessional
Well put it this way, I had two options 1 to bail my girlfriend out of jail, and she would be home rite now and in time for our anniversary, or two hire her a lawyer to fight her case because she was set up buy some low down dirty people. And it simply was not fair what had and is happening to her, well I'll tell you this rite now this was by far the worst investment 8 have made ever, not only has she been incarcerated for nearly 20 days this is the third time he has just moved her court date up, and his excuse is Because he has more important cases he must tend to first. His word, I can't believe this crap. And on top of it all I can't get him to answer a call or even call me back if my life depended in it, 5 times I have called and nothing, so as of now my innocent girlfriend is sitting in jail with no. Idea of what's to come because Mr koch has more. Important matters to deal with. I can't every client should be treated like they matter and there case handled accordingly if you can't Tha.you should have never taken my money or the case. As. Of rite now I could not be more angry and tell Mr koch treats his clients with dignity and equality I will make it a point to let everyone know how he really operates. Tell then and only then I will consider changing my reviews

Terrible
This firm is a joke. Staff is never available, flaky attorney's. They took so long on my case that they made my sentence even longer. If you call the guys mailbox is always full and you can never even get a message through DO NOT USE THESE PEOPLE!!!
Posted by Tim | March 4, 2015
poor excuse for an attorney
This 2 bit clown is a poor excuse for an attorney. He has no problem taking your money but when it comes time to get down to business, he always has an excuse and in no way makes you feel confident in his ability. He never returns phone calls, cancels meetings with little or no notice. I cannot stress enough to look elsewhere for legal representation.
