Avoiding Convictions and Reducing Charges

How to Avoid Convictions in California

The experienced Los Angeles Criminal Defense attorneys at Hoffman & Associates never presume that a client is guilty. Instead, we presume there are two sides to every story. Our clients can feel confident that we will examine every piece of evidence related to your case. Because we are so thorough in looking for errors, omissions, and sloppy police work, our clients benefit by potentially avoiding conviction on the charges they face. We understand the stress associate with having been charged with a criminal offense. It is always our goal to alleviate the stress as much as possible and resolve your case as efficiently as possible.

We recognize that preparing a defense is a partnership between us and the clients we represent. A solid defense requires the expertise of our experienced defense lawyers along with the assistance and cooperation of our clients. We are proactive in our approach to defending clients. For example, we may help a DUI client get into alcohol counseling prior to the prosecutor filing charges. This action serves a dual purpose - to break a negative cycle and to change the perception of the judge and prosecutor.

Experienced DUI and Criminal Defense Attorney Gets Your Charges Reduced

Frequently, our early preparation of a case results in a dismissal or reduced charges. The knowledgeable Los Angeles DUI and Criminal Defense Attorneys at Hoffman & Associates will look at ways to prove that the allegations against you are out of character for such reasons as:

  • Lack of prior record
  • Community service you have performed
  • Your professional resume
  • Letters of recommendation

As DUI and Criminal Defense Attorneys practicing in Los Angeles, we work with each client's individual circumstances to prepare a defense that is tailor-made to obtain the best results possible. Two people arrested for the same offense will not necessarily have the same result, but choosing the right criminal defense lawyer increases your odds of a favorable outcome.

Our skilled DUI and Criminal Defense Attorneys have over 30 years of daily courtroom experience and have helped thousands of clients facing misdemeanor and felony charges. We work to protect our clients' rights and reputations, and will fight for a dismissal or reduction in each case we represent.

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.
I had a DUI issue recently. I have never had a problem with the law as serious as this one. I did panic a bit after and knew I had to get a lawyer to help my future. I researched the Web and read the reviews for awesome DUI Lawyers. Hiring a lawyer can be intimidating. Ron's 30 years experience and step by step guidance helped me with my case. Jonie was amazing with keeping me calm. Ron Hoffman is a great lawyer and I would refer any friends or family to him... Manuel Gomez
Ron was so accommodating and professional. With a Firm like his you wouldn't expect him to be as accessible, but he immediately returned phone calls, was easy to communicate with and was very sympathetic to my situation. He went above and beyond and was able to get a better result than I'd hoped or expected. I highly recommend Ron Hoffman and his firm. He made a difficult and anxiety fueled process bearable and made me feel safe. He is a lovely man. One does not wish to need a criminal attorney, but if you do need one, Ron's the guy to call... Teri A.
Ron and his team were the perfect pairing for what I needed taken care of. Every step of the way he was extremely helpful and informative (not his first rodeo). His work ethic and attitude were exemplary and it showed with the results of using his services. I would recommend anyone I know to give Ron a call if they need help in his realm of expertise. Many thanks Ron and associates!... Donald N.
I didn't hire a lawyer for my first DUI... What a mistake! Ronald goes above and beyond with his art and knowledge of custom strategy according to your case. lawyer of the year (every year)... Adam R.
I hate lawyers. They are hard to get a hold of, greedy and unreliable. Ron is the opposite of all these things. He deserves 6 stars, and I very much recommend him. He helped me through my case with nothing but kindness, understanding, and knowledge and eventually got it dropped. Thanks for everything Ron!... Avi Z.
