  • Effective, empathetic, communicative
    These guys really are the best. I sought out Shakti and Vadgama Law over 3 years ago when I was convicted for a DUI. Shakti and Lonnie managed to get my DUI charge down to a wet reckless charge at the last second too, miraculously, helping to unburden some of the damages and fines I was about to face. That alone, was pivotal. Recently, after passing my probationary period, Shakti also managed to have my conviction expunged, freeing me up from some of the barriers and obstacles I was facing in my job hunt. These guys do great work, they’re effective, empathetic, communicative, and provide a lot of guidance and support. There’s nobody better to have in your corner when you’re in a bind.

  • There for me every step of the way
    I picked up two DUI’s back to back and thought my life was over. I ended up hiring Shakti to represent me for both cases and it was the best decision I have ever made. He was able to get me outcomes I never thought were possible with how bad my cases were. It was a dark time in my life and Shakti was there for me every step of the way. I can’t imagine other lawyers care about their clients the way Shakti does. I highly recommend his services.

  • Best of the best
    I hired Vadgama Law to handle two cases. The first was a DUI a few years ago that they were able to get me an amazing deal even though my alcohol levels were high. The second case was a domestic violence case and they got it thrown out at the first court hearing. These guys really are the best of the best

  • They saved me a lot of time and a lot of money.
    My DUI got dropped down to just a speeding ticket thanks to Shakti and his law firm. They saved me a lot of time and a lot of money. I would highly recommend hiring them. After I got my DUI I was terrified. I was one of those people who weren't sure how to go about handling it/timid about hiring a particular lawyer as well to beat this case considering I blew a .09/felt like I got screwed over by law enforcement. However, I highly suggest you go with shakti and his law firm because they took matters into their own hands and acted swiftly/efficiently. I didn't even have to show up to my court dates. They showed up for me. They also beat the case and the DUI Was dropped. Thank you shakti and the law firm. God bless!

  • When Shakti and Lonnie gave me a call I knew they were the ones for the job.
    I had my first DUI case, didn’t know what to do or who to call. When Shakti and Lonnie gave me a call I knew they were the ones for the job. Being as young as I am none of the law talks made sense to me and many other lawyers that came in contact were too fast and didn’t make it seem like they even had time for me. Lonnie and shakti were there to answer my questions whenever I needed them and got back to me ASAP in a timely manner. Lonnie was able to reduce my penalties tremendously, dropping the DUI from my record and turning it into an infraction leaving me with no probationary period. I could not thank him and his team enough for all the help they gave me and my family.

  • Lonnie cared about my case and doing what's best for me.
    I received a notice in the mail. A notice I wasn't expecting. I was told I would probably need a lawyer. I did research and his firm was highly recommended. They were also very inexpensive in comparison to most lawyers. Lonnie cared about my case and doing what's best for me. My case was very small in comparison to his other cases, but he treated me like I was his only client. I appreciated the time he took with me. It seems like he genuinely wanted what was best for me. My hearing went amazing and I would recommend him to everyone.

  • Words can not describe how grateful me and my husband are for Adriana.
    Words can not describe how grateful me and my husband are for Adriana. I couldn't have gone through our case without her. Always taking my calls, my text, answering all my questions. She did everything to guide us and help us get through it. SHE IS THE BEST! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING OUR LAWYER ADRIANA!

    Very fortunate to have had Adriana represented me at a time when I needed her the most. Very professional and kind. Very attentive as well. Without her experience not sure what my outcome would’ve been. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

  • They are honest, compassionate, and helpful beyond measure.
    I recommend you hire Shakti and his team. They are honest, compassionate, and helpful beyond measure. As soon as they pick–up the phone, you realize you're in good hands. They understand what it is like to be going through the difficulty of being arrested and charged with a crime. They explain the process, if you do not understand, they explain again and again. They take their time to look at all the evidence, build a defense, persuade the prosecutor, advocate in front of the judge and deliver the best possible outcome as processed. Unlike other lawyers, it's not all about how much you can pay, but what they can do for you. I recommend them!

  • She didn't back down when the prosecutors were trying to give me a deal she didn't think was fair.
    I got a second DUI and was really scared. I had a bad lawyer for my first DUI so I was going to use a public defender this time around. I ended up contacting Adriana's law firm and I talked to Shakti about my case. I liked that he was honest and straightforward about everything so I hired them. He assigned my case to Adriana and she was more than what I could have hoped for! She was so understanding and patient and she really knew her stuff. She didn't judge me and made me feel comfortable. She didn't back down when the prosecutors were trying to give me a deal she didn't think was fair and she fought to get me a deal I didn't think I would get. She kept me posted about what was going on with my case and made everything so easy for me. I am very grateful to Adriana and I HIGHLY recommend her!

  • My husband was being charged with 6 felonies! & Looking at several years in prison!
    I was blessed to be able to hire Lonnie to represent my husband. My husband was being charged with 6 felonies! & Looking at several years in prison! Lonnie’s genius work, great knowledge, and awesome work ethic got my husband 6 months in the county jail and all the charges dropped down to misdemeanors. Lonnie works hard for his clients and isn’t afraid to go up to bat for them! He’s an amazing attorney and a great person to have on your side!

  • I definitely recommend Adriana and Shakti if you need a lawyer to represent you.
    I got my first and last DUI in October of 2019. I was very scared and stressed out because I didn’t know what to expect. After my boss insisted that I hire a lawyer and not settle for a public defender, I submitted an online inquiry for legal representation, and the first person to reach out to me was Shakti Vadgama. He was very informative and genuine - after further research, I found that having a lawyer that has worked for the courthouse (Metro) where you are being tried is a good idea - Shakti told me about his partner Adriana Quintero and her prior experience. Once I hired them they got me set up with how to find AA meetings near me, took care of both the court and DMV cases, and got me the best deal possible for my case. I am very pleased with how they worked with me. Adriana even showed me where everything was at the courthouse that I needed to be aware of, what things to take care of, and has been responsive to my questions even after the case was already handled. I definitely recommend Adriana and Shakti if you need a lawyer to represent you. thanks again!

  • He spoke to me like a real person, not someone who needed to show off that he was a lawyer.
    Best decision I made in 2019 was hiring Shakti Vadgama for my case. Shakti was very informed about my case and how to get the best results - and he did! Very knowledgeable about my case. He later out a great game plan to follow. He listened to my concerns. He spoke to me like a real person, not someone who needed to show off that he was a lawyer. Felt very comfortable with him about my case. He did not take down to me or make me feel like I was in the wrong. I highly recommend him and his firm to handle your case.

  • He didn’t seem like someone just trying to get my money, he actually cared.
    I hired Mr. Vadgama to rep me for a DUI case that I was illegally stopped for. Thank God I did because he helped get the case dropped. I talked to several lawyers and have 0 experience, but he made the process easy. He didn’t seem like someone just trying to get my money, he actually cared. He was honest, straight forward, easy to talk to, and most importantly - He did not OVERCHARGE! Highly recommended.

  • He had me prepared for every step of the process to avoid any unneeded stress or anxiety.
    I decided to get behind the wheel one night after a few too many and was arrested for DUI. I was really scared and nervous about what was going to happen in the next few months since I was working full time and commuted to work. I was scared that my job would find out but Shakti eased my mind and explained to me what to expect. He had me prepared for every step of the process to avoid any unneeded stress or anxiety. I was afraid I would not be able to afford to hire an attorney but I was surprised at how feasible it ended up becoming. I would definitely recommend this law firm to anybody who was in my position.

  • It turned out better than I imagined.
    I found Mr. Vadgama online and from the first phone call, I knew I was in good hands. He was tact, poised, and knowledgeable. I didn’t need to look any further and hired him shortly after our conversation. I explained my case to him and he gave me his opinion on how things would go. He did not sugarcoat it and only gave me the facts, which I greatly appreciated. There was no false hope, only credible options that could work for me and my specific case. He is genuinely there to help. He is extremely knowledgeable about DUI cases and has extensive experience. He was beyond helpful and genuinely wanted to see the best results for my case. This made me feel less stressed about the situation because I knew he was going to be out there working diligently for me. Not only was he there to answer any and all of my questions throughout the process but also helped me with valuable information to make my case run as smoothly as possible. He handled my case professionally and never hesitated to tell me exactly what to expect. He was timely with his responses and always filled me in after each hearing. In the end, he was able to get me reduced sentencing. It turned out better than I imagined. I occasionally have questions about the aftermath and he is always available to answer my questions. Highly recommend it for anyone going through a DUI especially in the LA county area.
