Mr. Vogel was my lawyer and, looking back on it, I cannot imagine going through the process with any other person/team. From the moment I met him, he made sure I knew exactly what was going on, took time to explain to me what my case entailed and what my options were, and helped me choose the best path for me. I never felt forced into doing anything I was not comfortable with, and he and his team made sure I felt confident in my understanding of the situation and every decision I made. This was a very hard time for me, and not only did he help me get the best outcome for my situation, he and his staff were extremely kind and supportive during the entire endeavor. He, along with his staff, are attentive and respectful and will always do what is best for their client. I highly recommend going to Brian Vogel!

I have serious health issues not limited to chemical exposure and clear information on a 3,000 SPECT scan showing brain damage from nuertoxins. I could not get past the receptionist to discuss a serious legal matter after being told this was a good attorney. I was told my language was unacceptable. My MD top in the world wrote me a letter clearly explaining my serious health issues and that under the ADA I am protected from discrimination in the event I use language and do not remember. I had a serious chemical hit days prior. Mr Vogel apparently doesn't have the time or understanding of serious medical conditions. I do not recommend and will not recommend where ever there is a venue to do so. Perhaps being a public defender of criminals not people who are legitimately ill has tainted his ability to critically think and show any compassion or common sense.

I contacted Brian for advice on a legal matter and as soon as I sent my email out I received an immediate phone call back. Brian was very attentive in his response, answering all of my questions. He was professional and I was advised in good detail how to handle the matter. Brian was helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks again for your help.

Brian Vogel is an excellent civil rights litigator. He is particularly knowledgeable and experienced in litigating against police misconduct. He is a first class lawyer and a fine human being. I endorse his work and recommend him for hire. No reservations.

Brian is a very talented member of the Ventura legal community. Brian's years of experience and dedication to his clients' cases is admired by his peers and feared by the local district attorneys. I have worked with Brian on several cases and have a great deal of respect for his ability to work for the best possible outcome for his clients.
