Laura Stone is by far one of the best criminal defense attorneys in Southern California. She is aggressive, smart, creative, and passionate about her work — the most important qualities to look for when choosing a lawyer. these traits, along with her years of experience and excellent reputation consistently allow her to obtian amazing results for her clients. Whether you are looking for a lawyer to represent you on DUI or drug charges, misdemeanors or major felonies, I highly recommend Ms. Stone to give you the best representation possible.
I was referred to Laura through a trustworthy and notable friend to help me with my DUI case in 2010. I must say that Laura is an excellent attorney that is highly knowledgeable about the law and was very responsive to the many questions and concerns I had about my case. She was extremely helpful in keeping me informed at all times and was careful in explaining all my options. Laura kept my confidence as she made a tireless effort to get me the best outcome for my case. Eventually, laura was able to land a remarkable deal getting my charges reduced to a dry reckless and no jail time! She definitely raises the bar on professionalism and excellence in her profession!
Laura Stone has been my DUI Attorney since about 2002.
I had hired another attorney by referral who was your stereotypical jerk lawyer that made me wait in the lobby an hour past our appointment time and then scowled at ME telling me that I could find another attorney if I didn’t like it. When i finally sat down with him He made me feel secondary for his attention and at all times he exuded the personality of a man who thinks very highly of himself.
I had already paid him a $1500 retainer so I was basically stuck with him.
The case was actually dismissed on technicalities, which honestly were SO glaring that ANY decent lawyer could have accomplished this if they had simply done their job right.
Regardless, I was grateful when the judge read his decision to dismiss this case. My lawyer immediately stooped over to whisper into my ear that he should have charged me an additional $3000!
Now, at that time Laura was working in the same office as him and was tasked with helping with my case.
From what I could tell, she had done most of the footwork in my case and when I sat down with HER the change in our interpersonal communication was dramatic!
First, I felt as though I had her undivided attention. She also treated me with kindness which I was grateful for considering the anxiety that facing such trouble can bring to a person. I felt reassured that she was seriously considering all aspects and avenues of approach to the case to help lighten the damnation that I was facing for what would have been my 2nd DUI in 3 years.
I’m not proud of my behavior then when I was drinking and driving. In fact, It took another 2 DUI convictions in 2004 and 2009 and then 2 MORE years of my heaviest drinking yet, (albeit with a revoked drivers license) for me to quit drinking altogether.
Laura Stone was my lawyer of choice for both my 2nd and 3rd offense AND my lawyer in 2007 for my crime of driving with alcohol in my system, (.06) in violation of my probation at the time. She gave me a good deal AND she cut a good deal with the Prosecutor to let me off easy on that one.
I am 800 days sober now as of today.
My sobriety date is 3/25/2011.
It should be noted that during all this time I had referred 2 friends, one of them a relative to Laura for her services; one for DUI and another for a personal injury case. Both friends were satisfied with Laura’s representation and their cases came out highly favorable.
Laura Stones professionalism, punctuality and legal know how are exemplary. But, as I’ve stated before, there is something more with this woman.
It is her ability to reassure me while i am under extreme duress that I have solid help on my side, that a real professional is looking out for my interests while i am mentally freaking out; a Lawyer who speaks to me as a person not just a client as she’s talking to me through the glass of L.A. County. A Lawyer who doesn’t jack up the price of her representation out of my reach.
A lawyer who has gotten me through the accountability phase of my reckless troubles more than I care to remember.
After dealing with Laura Stone for all these years, I would highly recommend her as the Go-To-Girl for any friend or relative who might need a lawyer.
In fact I already have!
Best Of Luck To You!
A lawyer to trust! Don’t be fooled by her beautiful face and pretty smile. This woman means business! She is extremely intelligent and her determination for success is admirable. She truly cares about your well being and she goes out of her way to ensure just that! Laura is an amazing person. She is brutally honest and that is exactly what you need in a lawyer! She will be your guardian angel as your lawyer and will go above & beyond to help you. I’m so very thankful I found Laura! With all my heart, Thank You!
Good Afternoon Yelp Fans. I wanted to take a moment to let you all know what a special attorney Laura Stone has been for me! So mind you Laura is a Criminal Defense attorney but the first time I called her was to ask a few questions in regards to a speeding ticket. Laura did not have to take the time to speak to me let alone help me, but she did and she was very thorough. I did not have a pen in hand when I called her and moments after I asked her a quick question she had handful of information for me to write down. Well let’s just say I was learned very quickly that Laura is incredibly professional and takes her time and work very serious no matter how big nor small. I liked Laura before that phone call but I knew she would be first I call if I needed help in the future.
Unfortunately I received a DUI in 2011. At that time I was incredibly worried about repercussions etcetera. Luckily I had the next best thing. I phoned Laura an explained my newly acquired problem. After a few initial meetings my worries where quickly diffused with her sound knowledge and abilities. Long story short Laura was direct and to the point. She made it very easy for me to fulfill all my obligations that the court asked of me.
Bottom line I feel Laura Stone is an Amazingly talented Woman with fierce shark like moves all of which is a must have in any attorney I hire. With all that and more Laura has always been there for me when I needed. Not to mention Laura is absolutely Stunning. Thank you so very much Laura Stone.
Laura Stone is probably the best attorney I have ever met! She is someone who genuinely cares about her clients, works around the clock to defend her case and is super savvy and intelligent. I have hired her multiple times and referred her to many of my friends and family members.
Originally, we hired Laura for a personal injury case in which my mother was in a car accident that could have taken her life. She did not have health Insurance and needed over $40k in medical assistance. Thanks to Laura she was able to receive all of the medical attention necessary on a lean and although the experience was life altering Laura Stone made her personal well being a priority and helped her seek compensation for her pain and suffering.
What I especially love about Laura is her attention to detail in every case. I understand she is busy but somehow she manages to stay on top of every aspect and is quick to respond to her client’s questions and concerns. Thank you Laura for being such a wonderful person and attorney. You are an angel!
