I called upon Raza of Margolin and Lawrence when things looked very grim for me coming up on trial for a felony DUI. I was referred by a close friend who had hired them. Raza was able to minimize my sentence with 3 days left before trial when my other lawyer admitted to me that things didn't look good for me and he had no other recourse. I wish I would have hired them off the bat, would have had an ideal outcome, I'm sure of it. They are especially familiar with judges and courtrooms in LA county
