Serving All Courts

Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving All Courts in California

Although our offices are located in Los Angeles and San Diego, our skilled criminal defense lawyers regularly appear in hundreds of courtrooms in California. We appear frequently in Orange County, Ventura County, San Bernardino, San Fernando Valley, and Riverside County courthouses, but are able to represent clients throughout the State of California.

Even if you do not live in California, but have found yourself facing a legal issue while visiting the state for business or pleasure, the experienced defense attorneys at Hoffman & Associates can represent you. Over the years we have represented many clients who live in other states, as well as Canada, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. We helped these clients with their legal problems in California, and often they did not have to return to California to settle the matters.

In Los Angeles, alone, there are over 30 different courts. Accordingly, in California there are hundreds of courts. Although the California courts each follow the same laws, the judges and prosecutors implement the laws with their own unique style and personality. In other words, courts in different counties in California can differ tremendously in how they prosecute an offense. Because our criminal defense attorneys understand and appreciate the differences in courts, they are better able to protect our clients’ freedom and good records in the venue they appear in.

At Hoffman & Associates, we spend more time in the courts than in any other place and have over 30 years of daily courtroom experience. Our knowledge of the often subtle differences in style and procedure among the courthouses is a critical element in our successful defense of our clients. Clients always benefit from the relationships that we have built in each courthouse. These business relationships and diverse experience help us successfully resolve our clients’ legal problems, no matter where they occur in California.

California Defense Attorneys with Important Courtroom Knowledge

The Hoffman & Associates defense attorneys know the prosecutors and the judges —and they know us. They are willing to work with us and know our reputation for aggressively fighting for our clients’ rights. We are fortunate to have their respect even as we fight for dismissals and reductions in charges whenever possible.

In most circumstances we can appear in any California courtroom on behalf of our clients, eliminating the need for clients to take time off of work or travel far distances to make an appearance. Our appearance on our clients’ behalf also reduces the stress associated with a trip to the courtroom.

If you or someone you know needs solid, aggressive criminal defense in California, call the offices of Hoffman & Associates. No matter where you live, Hoffman & Associates can represent you in a California courtroom.

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...
★★★★★
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.
