“I found Ron here on this site and due to the other types of cases he was successful with, I chose him. He didn’t make a lot of promises on the phone and gave me a realistic impression of what I was in for, which was in contrast to some of the other shady characters I spoke with that promised me the moon. He made me feel confident that he would be able to get me the best possible outcome. Because of Ron’s reputation and YEARS of experience, he knows everyone at the DAs office and was able to get ahead of my case and get character reference letters to them before they filed the case. He was able to get the information I COULD NOT have gotten without him. Because of him, my case was never filed, I avoided fees, court, embarrassment and a record. He’s as good as the rest of the reviews here say. He DID in fact, get the best possible outcome for me and I feel He was worth every penny, I don’t feel like I’ve been used, I feel I’ve been supported, respected and properly represented. I’m staying anonymous, but this is a 100% REAL review with a real life scared as heck person, that got through this nightmare with Ron’s expertise and support.”

What Makes Ronald D. Hedding Uniquely Qualified To Represent You?

I can’t believe I’ve been practicing criminal defense now for twenty-five years. I’ve handled thousands of DUI’s over that time span. A lot of people don’t realize that because so many people drink and drive, most of the arrests in Los Angeles are DUI-related. Whether it be just for a simple first-time DUI, DUI related to a hit-and-run, DUI related to an accident or DUI related to a death — all of these different kinds of cases are all based in DUI activity.

In other words, people got out and have some drinks. They don’t get an exit strategy together. They have too many drinks or mix their drinks with drugs like marijuana and all sorts of stuff and then they end up in an accident or they end up being pulled over by the police who are just waiting outside of a bar, and now they’ve got to deal with DUI situation and arrest, embarrassment, facing jail time, facing potential loss of their license, a mark on their record.

So, I’ve been doing this a long time. I’ve been in all of the courts in Los Angeles county. I feel very confident negotiating with the judges and prosecutors. I’ve tried many alcohol-related offenses over the many years that I’ve been practicing and I think I know the value of a case, and I guess for purposes of you trying to figure out which attorney you want to hire, my strongest credentials relate to the fact that I’m very well-rounded as far as DUI law goes.

In other words, I’ve worked for a judge as his research attorney so I’ve kind of seen how judges decide cases and what their thought process is. That helps me to make decisions as far as the type of mitigating information I want to give a judge. Also, I’ve worked for the District Attorney’s Office in East Los Angeles for a time period where I got to see how the prosecutors prosecute a case, interact with the police department, investigate cases and then put on the case and I’ve been part of that from a prosecution standpoint.

And of course, finally in 1994, I opened my own practice and again, I’ve handled literally thousands of DUI cases and DUI-related offenses over the years, so I’ve got a very good foundation. I have a pretty good perspective on how a particular court is going to deal with a particular set of circumstances related to a DUI case in Los Angeles. That’s exactly what you need. That’s exactly what you have to have if you want to have success in a DUI case.

You need someone who knows what they’re doing, who knows how to attack the problem, who knows when to fight a case, who knows when to negotiate a case, who knows what mitigating information is going to make a different in the case, who knows how to get you involved so you can be part of the solution and not part of the problem, and who knows how to execute a plan to get you the best result in your DUI matter and gets you out of the criminal justice system as fast as possible.

I have been defending clients charged with DUI cases for the past twenty five years. I enjoy defending DUI cases, because they usually involve normal people, with lives, careers and families, who have been caught by the police drinking alcohol and driving.

It is a very scary circumstance for these people and I enjoy quelling their fears and helping then resolve their DUI matter in the most favorable way possible! There is nothing like taking back control of your life and getting back your peace of mind, once you know what you are facing and what can be done to help you.”

A DUI case should not define your life. We are in the business of helping good people get out of the criminal justice system as soon as humanly possible. We are looking to handle your DUI case discreetly, professionally and with the least embarrassment and loss of rights as possible. Each case spins on its own facts and I encourage you to come and sit down with us so we can educate you on how the system works and what we can do to resolve your matter and put you back on the road.
