A Glendale City Court Success Story
Last year, we represented an individual charged with one count of DUI and one count of Failure to Control Speed to Avoid a Collision in Glendale City Court. After extensive pre-trial investigation, we were able to prove that police made errors in their handling of the case, which resulted in a reduction of the charges to one count of reckless driving.

Don’t Go to Court Alone!
We strongly advise you to retain a private defense attorney for your case. Although you may represent yourself, no one except an attorney may represent you during your hearing at the Glendale City Court. If you don’t hire your own attorney, the court may appoint one for you. These public defenders have huge caseloads and insufficient time to dedicate to building your defense.
