Read what Alan's past clients have to say:
Alan got me the best possible result on my case: I was facing a felony charge and jail time, which on the first arraignment was reduced to a misdemeanor. Alan got me into a DEJ program that once complete, the entire case was dismissed. I could not have asked for a better result on my case from a mistake I wish never happened. I highly recommend this criminal defense law firm to anyone facing criminal charges. Alan was caring and approachable from the first consultation and was always willing to talk to me throughout the entire process. If you are ever in trouble, Alan is the guy you want to call. Thanks again Alan.
Compassionate and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney: At 27, I made some bad decisions a year ago and began selling drugs. This resulted in my arrest. After some research, I realized I was facing over five years in prison. so I began searching for the best criminal defense attorney on the Internet. After interviewing five attorneys in their offices, I chose Alan Eisner. I realized almost immediately that he was the best attorney for my defense not only because of his knowledge of the law, but also due to his nurturing attitude. I took Alan's advice and started attending narcotics anonymous, applied for college classes and moved back into my home. The fix was almost immediate and I realized the carelessness of my pursuits. Alan was able to bring this family catastrophe to a swift conclusion in two court sessions. I obtained the best possible outcome and only received three years probation and 300 hours of community service. This just would have not been possible without Alan's counsel. If you are in a similar situation remember that second chances are possible with the right criminal defense lawyer. I am now starting my new life.
Alan got me an infraction after a felony arrest: I must say that Mr. Eisner is a compassionate and intelligent criminal defense lawyer. His law firm works as a team and had two lawyers helping me. I was a wreck, scared, and he got me an infraction after a felony arrest. I will go to their law firm for an expungement soon. I learned my lesson from the arrest, and know I will never get into that situation again. Mr. Eisner helped me move forward with my life. He answered all my questions and even met with me on the weekend because I work full-time. I appreciate everything he did.
Mr. Eisner provided great representation on my case: Mr. Eisner helped me out on my case and provided clear information about all the risks involved and clear guidance on my best choices. I am very happy with the outcome of my case. He was personable and friendly, well-informed and trustworthy. I really liked how he was available to me at anytime and always answered my questions fully. I highly recommend his services. He will give you what you need.
Mr. Eisner did a fantastic job and my son's case for gun possession was dismissed: My son was arrested and charged with felony gun possession charges. We interviewed several Los Angeles criminal lawyers before settling on this criminal law firm. Mr. Eisner did a fantastic job and my son's case was dismissed after a year of informal supervision. He now has no criminal record and can move on with his life! I really like how Alan promptly returned all my phone calls and took all the necessary time to answer my questions. I would highly recommend him.
