The El Monte Courthouse hears cases involving DUIs, traffic tickets, and criminal charges, including misdemeanor and felony cases and is sometimes known as the Rio Hondo Court.  Arraignments for various criminal charges are heard in Departments 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6 of the courthouse.

Our legal team is very familiar with the El Monte Courthouse.  We routinely use our knowledge of the prosecutors and judges to our clients’ advantage in contesting their charges.  We work to undermine the prosecution’s case against you any way we can and exploit any holes in their argument.  Depending on the details of your case, we will determine if it is in your best interests to plead not guilty or no contest.  Even if there is some truth to the accusations against you, it may be possible to work towards a compromise by pleading for a lesser crime, thus greatly reducing any related penalties.
