Trust in a Firm That is Backed By Trial Success

Our success throughout the San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles stems from our preparation and our willingness to aggressively litigate various bail motions, pretrial motions, our skill at negotiating favorable plea agreements, and, when justice requires, our reputation for successfully taking cases to jury trial. This philosophy has resulted in numerous favorable plea agreements, dismissals and acquittals.

It is important to remember that the facts of each case are different, that each courthouse is staffed with different prosecutors and bench officers, and lastly, that the demographics of juries vary at each courthouse. These elements often lead to varying results, and our past successes are not a guarantee of similar results in your case; however, you can trust that we will fight aggressively for you.

Attorney Steve Escovar was selected by Pasadena Magazine as one of Pasadena's Top Attorneys in 2010, he has also appeared on various Spanish-language television networks, including CNN Español, Telemundo, and Univision as a legal commentator.

Would highly recommend him if you are ever in need of a Criminal lawyer. It's not often I write reviews but seeing as I have been going through the lawyer ringer lately I thought I should. Steve is a brilliant lawyer and close friend. It always amazes me just how he finds time to be so attentive to his clients while also finding time for his family. I consider him a friend not just my lawyer. He is very honest and carries himself with integrity in all he does. Would highly recommend him if you are ever in need of a Criminal lawyer.
