The unlawful eviction suit I brought to Malia Powell at Senior Citizens Legal Services could not be categorized as a typical Senior Problem, or the suit’s Plaintiff a typical Senior Citizen, a career Artist/Educator. The Defendant’s decision to take the suit to a jury trial rather than settle out of Court, lead Attorney Powell to bring Belam Letona, a more experienced Trial Attorney, onto the legal team. Letona’s intelligent approach purposefully got to the heart of my story and reasons for bringing the suit. His meticulous analysis of Powell’s original broad scope casework and detailed preparation with the case’s documentation and evidence, lead Attorney Letona to present a tightly focused case in Court. He convinced a reluctant jury to produce a unanimous decision for the Plaintiff on the suit’s key question.
As a first-time-novice, innocent of legal proceedings, Mr. Letona quickly earned my trust, appreciation and respect through his passionate approach, positive attitude, direct honest communication and fiercely determined action. If asked, he will become your strongest ally.
Collaboration. Vindication. Satisfaction. Priceless.

I am a staff attorney at Senior Citizen Legal Services. Mr. Letona stepped up to help my client and I through a jury trial. He did an amazing job representing my senior citizen client through trial. We are both so appreciative to have had his help. Mr. Letona definitely knew his way around the court room and he was prepared for everything that came his way. Mr. Letona’s oral arguments were powerful, logical and persuasive. I was impressed not only by his professionalism, but also by his unfailing courtesy to everyone involved in the case. At the end of the case my client thanked me enthusiastically for bringing Mr. Letona on to do his trial. Mr. Letona is a supportive, skilled and experienced attorney.

My review of Attorney, Balam Letona, and Legal Assistant, Isai Ambrosio, comes with high commendation. When I initially went to Balam's office for an attorney consultation, I was unsure of whether or not I was making the correct decision to file a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Balam was interested in knowing the reasons for my apprehension, and he offered several confident and reassuring reasons why a decision to move forward with a bankruptcy was in my best interest.
Once I decided to contract with Balam, he and his legal staff clarified what would be needed to file my bankruptcy, and they brought to my attention, important deadlines that were necessary to meet, in order to stop possible legal action against me by certain creditors.
With the initial processes of filing my bankruptcy in place, Isai handled all of the documentation that I brought into the office, in a very professional and timely manner. Isai kept me informed every step of the way, and he either emailed, or called me, with updates and reminders about my case.
Due to Balam and Isai's professionalism, and experience with legal matters, before it came time for me to appear in court, I felt very strongly that my case would go through the legal system successfully, and without any cause for question, and it did.
It is with much ease and confidence, that I recommend, and will continue recommending, the Law Office of Balam Letona, and his legal staff.
Thank you very, very much!

Going through a divorce I got stuck with all the financial obligations being the responsible half in the the relationship. I was lost, worn out and didn't know where to start with all the harrasing phone calls that were coming at me. I walked into Balams office 7 years ago and he was so helpful. He listened to my needs and went through all the options that were available in my situation. His support assured me that I was making the right decision on filing for Chapter 13. There is NO WAY I could have done this without the him and Isai. They are a great team and were always available whenever I had questions. They treat you like they've known you forever and that was comforting. Going to my hearing I felt as ease knowing I had Balam with me. He stood up for me and had my best interests at the forefront. Balam made me feel supported and confident that I would be able to see this through to the end. I didn't realize at the time how low the success rate for finishing a bankruptcy was and not once did I feel like we couldn't do it! I couldn't have made a better decision to go with the Balam Letona office. I'm sad to let them go but so HAPPY that it's done!! From the bottom of my heart, Thank You!

I called Balam Letona a couple of months ago to speak with him regarding a case in which a car dealership sold me a car, which after two years, was discovered to have frame damage and a wrong engine at the time of purchase! Balam was very easy to work with and right away I really enjoyed the fact that he seemed to really take the time to make sure that I understood everything fully. No details were left undiscussed. It definitely helps ease your mind when any question you have is answered by Balam and that he wants you to understand. In the end, the car dealership took the car back and I received a check for almost the full amount of the original purchase price. I would definitely consider this a win and Balam was a HUGE help!

I feel very fortunate that I had Mr. Letona as my attorney when dealing with the Cardinale auto dealership. As an individual, I was unable to get any response from the dealership after purchasing an automobile which had been wrecked and was dangerously defective. Mr. Letona used his extensive knowledge of consumer law to force the dealership to compensate me. He is an excellent attorney, very knowledgeable and also ethical. I am happy to recommend him.

I recently contacted Balam for help with a local Auto dealership dispute. He spent about 30 minutes with me asking questions and then giving me facts and information. He determined that I had a good case and that he would write a demand letter for me. If this did not work, he would then sue on a contingency basis. He warned me that this would take some time, but would probably be successful.
He also told me what to say and how to act and how the dealer would act, etc. if I wanted to go in and try to deal with it myself. He referred me to a knowledgeable mechanic who further educated me.
Armed with this ammunition, I did go myself --and succeeded.
I will definitely use Balam in the future-- though I hope I will not have to-- and I would highly recommend that anyone else in my situation give him a call; you may, like me, become so educated that you won't need him either.

We went to Balam Letona to clear up some of our financial issues. Balam was so helpful. He took the time to listen to all of our concerns, he simplified the proceedings for us to make things more understandable, and he was very compassionate about our situation, working hard to find solutions that worked best for us. His legal assistant was also very helpful. Whenever we needed a response to a concern, someone got back to us right away, on the phone or by email. I have nothing but admiration and praise for Balam and the work he and his assistant did to walk us through a challenging legal procedure for us and our family. Thanks Balam!!
