Client retained us after he had pleaded guilty to a felony with the Public Defender for bringing drugs into a jail and a misdemeanor DUI. Atty. Austin Ifri appeared for what should have been sentencing, relieves the public defender and begins negotiating with the DA in Norwalk. Eventually, negotiations resulted with the DA agreeing to continue sentencing and retroactively dismissing the felony he had pleaded guilty too already (VERY RARE). However, court was unable to sentence him that day because part of the deal was that we provide documentation of car insurance, had he been sentenced that day, he would have been eventually released from jail and risk deportation. Instead, Austin was able to get DA and court to agree to release him on OR so that he would be released in court that day, effectively avoiding any immigration consequences. Client was released from court that day to a happy family, he then returned for sentencing 2 weeks later. His felony was dismissed and ONLY has a misdemeanor on his record. Had he not retained us, he would have had a felony  conviction on his record and likely deported.

Judge found client’s testimony credible, petition granted.

January 19, 2017 (Burglary)

Client had 3 felony convictions from 2002 and absconded the day she was placed on probation. Warrants were found when she picked up a new burglary case. After months of negotiations and court appearances, we were able to resolve all four cases for 60 days community labor and her formal probation is terminated.

December 28, 2016 (DUI)

This week we had a client who was convicted of a DUI and a separate driving with a suspended license over 15 years ago. Client was deported after serving a 90-day sentence and violated probation when she failed to complete the terms of her probation on the convictions. The client was facing custody time for avoiding her obligations to the court for over 15 years and we settled the client’s case with the court with no jail time and no additional punishment.

December 20, 2016 (Reduction of Charges)

Client was facing two felony counts and two misdemeanor counts. We were able to dismiss one of the felonies, reduce one of the felonies to misdemeanor, and dismiss completely the other two misdemeanors. Client did not have to do any jail time and just 12 days community labor plus restitution payment. He only pled to one misdemeanor count in the end.

This week we got our client’s case dismissed. It was a case over 10 years old. Client was accused of a serious crime. We started our fighting aggressively by getting an investigator appointed to the case to start preparing for trial. Then, due to how old the case filed a Serna motion. With relentless efforts and the filing of our motion we were able to completely drop the charges against our client.

(Speeding Ticket On Radar)

“A year ago I was ticketed for speeding; it was caught on police radar. Additionally, I missed my court date due to personal reasons. I was full of anxiety, as I was certain I would lose this case(especially because i missed my court date). Then I was referred to Mr. Moaddel from a friend, and he worked some magic and had the entire case dismissed.”

(Suspended License…DISMISSED!!)

“I went to Mr. Moaddel’s office a few months ago when I got this ridiculous driving w/ a suspended lic ticket. The officer was a jerk. Mr.Moaddel was able to assure me that everything would be fine & I WOULDN’T HAVE TO GO TO COURT (which was great!). Every time I had a court date, he would call me shortly after and explain what was going. At the end of my case, I got the best news ever, my case was DISMISSED!!! I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer who’s experienced, aggressive, and gets the job done!”

(2 DUIs–Dismissed)

Client had obtained two DUIs from two years ago, facing one year in county jail. Our attorneys were able to fight aggressively with both cases which got dismissed, and client now has a valid driver’s license.


Client had a 2006 warrant for a rape case, when a no bail warrant was issued. Client then retained our firm, and our attorney filed numerous motions that ultimately resulted in no jail time and termination of probation.

(Felony Probation Violation)

We had a client who was deported from state prison and never showed back up to complete felony probation. Probation wanted 180 days jail and did not care that he would likely get deported. We set the matter over several times, gathered documentation showing client’s background and situation and made aggressive legal arguments. Today he was reinstated with 15 days of community labor, no jail.

(Serna Motion: 10 Year Old Case)

Client had a case that was over 10 years old, which he was being accused of serious crime. We started out fighting aggressively by getting an investigator appointed to the case to start preparing for trial. Then, due to how old the case was, we filed a Serna motion. With relentless efforts and the filing of our motion we were able to completely drop the charges against our client.

(Driving with a Suspended License–Reduced to fines & fees)

Client was fighting colon cancer and had to drive to appointments because of it. He does what he can to provide and take care of his grandchildren, as well as his own children and wife, when he got four tickets for driving with a suspended license. We were able to dismiss three of them and pled him out to only one 14601.1 for a no jail offer; just fines and fees. He can now get his license and provide for his family with peace of mind.


Client got sited for a DUI with a .13% BAC. We had issues regarding the manner in which the client was stopped by law enforcement. They claimed they pulled him over because he was not wearing a seat belt, but the MVARs clearly show he had a seat belt on when officers approached him. The diligent attorneys at Moaddel Law Firm were able to reduce the DUI to a wet reckless charge and now our client does not have a DUI on his record.

(2nd DUI–Charge Reduced with no Jail Time)

Client was arrested for a 2nd DUI in 10 years. He was facing jail time and ultimately deportation. After aggressive negotiating by the attorneys at Moaddel Law Firm, we are able to get the client a Wet Reckless charge, void of jail time and client does not have a second DUI on his record.

(DUI–Reduced with No Jail time)

With trembling fear of being deported for a warrant on a 15 year old DUI warrant. The skilled attorneys at Moaddel Law Firm researched the latest case law and drafted motions that allowed us to recall the warrant and dispose of the case to a wet reckless without our client even having had to step foot in the court at all. Client is now able to drive his children to school without having to look over his shoulders.

2223 – theft charge, $7000 owed, reduced.
1391 – ADW charge, reduced

(Felony Post Conviction Warrants Recalled)

2431 – client placed on probation, theft case losses close to $2000, client never reported, warrant recalled and client reinstated no penalty.

(Stalking and Domestic Violence Charges Dismissed and Felony Charge Reduced)

Client was facing 2 felony charges of 422 (Criminal Threats) and 649 (Staking) with one misdemeanor count of domestic violence 243(e)(1). Client was in custody since November and on a $200k bail. Upon arrival to court for his preliminary hearing, I was able to negotiate with DA to dismiss the stalking and domestic violence counts; get client credit for time served; he pled to 1 count of felony criminal threats 422. However, provided client does his 52 weeks of counseling and 59 days of work-release, he will be able to earn a misdemeanor reduction on the charge and therefore ultimately not have a felony on his record. Additionally, client will get to go home tonight back to his family and get his life back on track.

(Case Dismissed)

Client was facing a frivolous violation of court order charge and wanted to fight the case at all costs. Initially, the District Attorney’s office wanted to client to take a plea in where he would have to take 52 weeks of anger management classes plus 3 years of probation. Ultimately both sides were at a deadlock because the DA would not change their position on the case and the case was headed for trial. On the day of trial, DA countered with a new offer to reduce probation and delete the anger management courses. We rejected the deal again.

Finally, the DA gave in and announced that they will be unable to proceed on the case and it was dismissed! Client was extremely happy that he did not take a deal and that he does not have a to take a charge on his record.

Thank you so much!
–Cassandra Falk

(Drug Trafficking–Case Dismissed)

Felony Transport Case (Trafficking) – Our attorney got the case dismissed in full, prior to his preliminary hearing. Private investigator uncovered misconduct by arresting officers.

(20 Year Old DUI Warrant)

Client had a 20 year old warrant for a DUI in which he never did his classes or pay fines. In court, DA wanted to initially have our client serve a max term and terminate probation. After aggressively negotiating with the DA, arguing our client’s lack of criminal history along with mitigating factors as to why he never completed his probationary requirements. DA agreed to give client another chance which is when the judge recalled and quashed the warrant. Our client was able to re-enroll in his DUI class and he no longer has to worry about being arrested with a warrant hanging over his head.

(DUI, Suspended License, and Probation Violation)

This week we had a client who was convicted of a DUI and a separate driving with a suspended license over 15 years ago. Client was deported after serving a 90 day sentence and violated probation when she failed to complete the terms of her probation on the convictions. The client was facing custody time for avoiding her obligations to the court for over 15 years and we settled the client’s case with the court with no jail time and no additional punishment.

(Domestic Violence–Case Dropped)

This client was deported after a DV arrest over 5 years ago. The case was in warrant status since then, scaring his entire family. Today we appeared and not only got the warrant recalled with no penalty but, convinced the city attorney to drop the entire case.

(DUI–Driver’s License Retained)

Client was driving in Modesto when he veered off the road and crashed his car. His BAC was .17% and over twice the legal limit. The attorneys at Moaddel Law Firm hammered away, and the DMV ruled to set aside the driver license suspension.

(Domestic Violence & Probation Violation–Charges Dismissed)

Client was charged with Domestic Violence and facing a violation of probation resulting in a lengthy stint in County Jail. By discrediting the allegations and showing evidence that the charges were unfounded and unwarranted, the attorneys at Moaddel Law Firm were able to get the new charges dismissed and client was able to return home to his family without a case hanging over his head.

(Several Felonies & Misdemeanors–Reduced)

Matter 1878: Client has been in custody for more than 6 months on 5 total felony charges (one felony residential burglary charge for BA448831; 4 felony charges for BA451034, and 9 total misdemeanor charges for case 6CJ11563).

After months of negotiations we were finally able to come to a resolution on this matter.
Client plead to 1 felony charge for each felony case. Sentencing for BA451034 was set over for one year and if client successfully completes 1 year live-in drug treatment program then one of the felonies will be dismissed. Additionally, client’s Misdemeanor case will be dismissed.
In the end, if client successfully completes probation requirements she will end up with only one felony charge on her record (when she was facing 5 felonies and 9 misdemeanors).
Matter 1879: Co-d with matter 1878. He was facing Misdemeanor trespass charge and was adamant about his innocence. DA initially offered 180 hours of community service with 2 years summary probation. She came down to 100 hours. However, when we announced that we wanted to go to trial on the matter. DA advised she will dismiss this case and let CA handle it if they want to.
This is client’s second case (out of 3) that we were able to get dismissed.
