Hit and Run

Our attorneys are highly skilled in representing clients with vehicle code violations. Hit and Run cases are our specialty. Our Los Angeles Hit and Run lawyers have developed a unique and very effective pre filing strategy which eliminates over 90% of criminal charges being filed. Avoiding charges being filed prevents clients from having to face the possibility of convictions, and the penalties that come with them, including a tarnish on your record, fines, probation and the possibility of jail time. We fight by using all of the necessary steps to dramatically increase the chances of avoiding a court case.


Our Los Angeles DUI Attorneys have handled thousands of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol/ Drugs cases in all of the Courts in Los Angeles County, Orange County and San Diego County, as well as other Southern California courthouses. We carefully scrutinize all the facts presented by the prosecution and expose any weaknesses of their case so that you have the best possibility of getting your case dismissed or reduced.

Drug Possession and Sales

With the ever-changing laws in the area of drug possession and sales, it is vital to be represented by a law firm who stays at the cutting edge of any legal changes that are made. We are also well versed in alternate prosecution options including diversionary type programs leading to full dismissals of any charge.

Bench Warrant Removal

Once retained our office moves quickly to remove any outstanding warrants or failures to appear. With the permission of the court, the majority of the time we can appear without the necessity of the client appearing to accomplish removing a warrant

Unlawful Use of Handicap Stickers

Our attorneys have handled hundreds of people faced with being convicted of a misdemeanor for the unlawful use of a Handicap Placard. Regardless of the facts, we have created diversionary type programs that we use frequently to avoid conviction of this charge, and it's penalties.

Our Criminal Defense Attorneys practicing in Los Angeles look for every opportunity to scrutinize any and all evidence being used in the prosecution of our client. We evaluate the relative strength or weakness of police work, scientific evidence, and any witness statements to determine whether it is potentially helpful or harmful.

Each day our experienced and highly skilled attorneys walk into courtrooms in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego County and other Southern California Courts, prepared to fight to protect our client's rights, freedom and good record. This is our number one priority.

Our lawyers fight tirelessly and hard for dismissals and plea bargains for both charge and sentence reductions regardless of the facts of the case.

Longstanding and critically important relationships with judges, prosecutors and law enforcement officers open many doors to achieving excellent results for each of our clients. Defending thousands of clients in all Southern California Courts has earned our firm an excellent reputation in the legal community for its strong advocacy, yet compassionate and caring representation.

Our attorneys also have a strong psychological understanding in both preparation and presentation of our client's cases. The powerful and strategic advantage over the majority of less experienced counsel, gives our clients the benefit of this insight. Knowing how a prosecutor or judge will view the facts of your case, including all evidence and witness statements, optimizes the effectiveness of the unique defense we use on each case.

Client Reviews
I can't begin to thank Mr. Hoffman enough for his extensive efforts throughout the entire case. He went absolutely above and beyond throughout the entire process. From day one he was immediately actively pursuing ways to prevent my case from ever going to court and once that was no longer an option, actively began working on getting the case ultimately dismissed. His communication was consistent and reassuring, despite my frantic worries all the time... Micaiah Botts
My family and I simply owe our life and future to Ron Hoffman. If you are looking for a lawyer that goes above and beyond the call of duty you can't find a better lawyer than Ron. He took my case head on from the moment I called his office. I was involved in an accidental hit and run where I was unaware of the injury. Every step of the way, Ron guided me through an almost two year long investigation and court settlement process and was constantly by my side through out every crossroad... Bill Martin
Ron Hoffman and his staff were Fantastic when dealing with such a serious issue of DUI. When I first Called Ron I was very nervous and worried for my daughter and her freedom. She had a failure to appear on top of her DUI and I knew just how bad this could be. Ron was able to immediately put me at ease and gave me the confidence that there was hope and a light at the end of the tunnel. Ron was able to get the failure to appear dismissed and also no jail time for my daughter... Claude Brown
I have been working with Mr. Hoffman for over 11 years. I have seen first hand his genuine dedication to his clients, and how his experience, knowledge and passion have gotten clients fantastic results. He treats each of his clients as his only client, and takes the time to develop detailed strategies and defenses for each individual case. I have never hesitated to refer Mr. Hoffman to anyone who has asked me for a good Criminal Defense attorney. He is a fantastic attorney!... Neeta P.
