I was referred to Suzanne by another LA attorney. As soon as I spoke with her I felt comfortable and confident in her ability to help me. She gave me lots of sage advice that turned out to be spot on. The court rules and procedures are so complex, but Ms Crouts is a master at the intricacies of the criminal justice system. She knew more than the prosecutor! I recommend her for her skills at producing excellent results even when everything seems stacked against you.

I called to ask some important questions about the law changes for sentencing enhancements that went into effect and got to speak with Tsion Chudnovsky. I was impressed with her knowledge and desire to help me understand how they could affect my relative, even without paying her anything. The other law firms I called pawned me off on a secretary who couldn't answer any substantive questions. I really appreciated that she was willing to take time out of her busy day to help. Tsion is one of a kind and a good choice for an attorney.Thank you Tsion for all the advice!!!
