What’s Special About
The Mattern Law Firm?

I Have The Experience You Need

Any attorney fresh out of law school will be familiar with the letter of the law, but this is by no means all that is required to be an effective criminal defense attorney in Los Angeles. At The Mattern Law Firm, my level of skill extends beyond the letter of the law and even beyond the large body of case law associated with the types of charges I handle. My years of experience handling a wide array of charges in every courtroom in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Riverside and San Bernardino counties has given me an insight into how the local judicial system really works. Each county handles its cases differently, as does each courthouse and, to a large extent, each individual courtroom. Having an attorney on your side who knows and understands those differences can make a big difference in your case.

You Can Rely On My Integrity

Some attorneys are content to tell their clients whatever they want to hear, even if this means allowing a client to unwittingly pursue a strategy that is virtually destined for failure. This does not happen at The Mattern Law Firm. I have the integrity required to tell my clients the truth about the outcomes they can reasonably expect to achieve in their specific case. I do not make empty promises or provide false hope. My only promise is one I can definitely keep — to work hard to help the client achieve a result that is acceptable to them through tireless investigation, analysis and preparation.

My Foundations Are Compassion And Understanding

I understand that behind any criminal charge is a person with a name, with a family, and with a life story that is very personal to them. Each of my clients is a mother or father, a sister or brother, a son or daughter. Being charged with a crime can be stressful for the person accused of a crime, as well as their family. Some of my clients have no family and need someone to talk to, someone to offer encouragement and hope. I take the time to get to know each of my clients because I care. Since I know that a conviction carries with it a lifetime of potential issues, I reach beyond the present to find a solution for the future.
