Great Lawyer and Recommend.

I have never been in trouble with the law before so when I first came to Hieu I was feeling really scared and nervous. He was so kind and reassured me that everyone makes mistakes and that he would help me through this one. He handled my case accordingly, always kept me updated, and would respond to all of my questions in a timely manner. He is a great lawyer and I would highly recommend him if you have any legal issues!

Honest and delivered a Dry Reckless!

Reached out to Hieu after not only checking his Yelp reviews but also searching Google to get a consultation. He took his time to ensure he understood every detail, and gave me an honest opinion about what my best case scenario would be. Needless to say, he took care of everything. All I really needed to do was reply to a few of his emails and pay. I'm extremely grateful for his professionalism and indebted to him for the results of my case. He was able to reduce DUI to a charge of dry and reckless which again, is nothing short of life changing. Cannot thank this man enough, he's the best.

NO Jail and no probation violation!

Best experience and results possible. I reached out to Attorney Vu after having a warrant issued for failing to pay my DUI costs. The judge wanted to give me 5 days in jail or community service plus put me back on probation. After going to court with Hieu I was out with the warrant removed, no jail and no probation violation. Definitely glad I reached out to him and am grateful for his help.

2 back to back DUIs No Jail!

Great lawyer I got 2 d.u.I.'s back to back and he managed to keep me out of jail, worked with me all the way through it and gided me through the process. Not expensive and gave me a chance on making payments what more could I ask for in a lawyer!!

Talk with Hieu Vu

Have your case reviewed in person at no charge to you.

“To the client, every angle is important, there’s a number of questions, and each person also have their own worries. Some will need a person to listen to them. At the end of the day, it’s more than just delivering legal results. I put a 110% into every person I work. I strive to make sure everyone knows what is going on and is kept in the loop as the case goes on. The practice of law is more than just getting the results in court.” -Hieu Vu

My Philosophy on Practice

When everything seems to be falling apart, it’s important to have an Attorney on your side when facing the court system. An arrest by a police officer starts a case against you. Regardless of truth, when you are arrested the criminal process is started against you. You must fight your case if you want to avoid the conviction from showing up on your criminal record.

Instead of looking for ways to convict you, you need to have an attorney on your side who look for ways to win your case. You have the constitution on our side. There are rights entitled to you as an accused person. These rights let you bring people into court and put the burden of proof on the state.

Never admit guilt even when you are confronted by a police officer. You have the protection of the constitution. It is up to the state to prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. You are entitled to a jury of 12 peers. You also have the right to cross examine your accusers and produce evidence on your own behalf.

Your Case Your Decision

Your Case Your Decision


You tell your story

An attorney client relationship is formed upon consult. You need to tell your side of the story with as much details as possible. There's more than the police side of the story. Often times there are witnesses and hasty decision makers. Everything talked about is covered by privilege.


We Evaluate Your Case

You and me work as a team. I guide your questions and figure out things that was overlooked. Upon collection of the facts, your side of the story, and review of the paperwork, interview of witness, we identify the weakness of the state'


Your Representation

You do not have to go to court in most cases. In most cases clients do not have to go to court. DMV is lined up if this is a DUI and all subpoenas are sent out. Your 1st court date is covered and subsequent court date are covered. We communicate via phone, in person office visits, and text messages.

Determine the Outcome of Your Case 

Having a lawyer in case can make a  world of difference. You can not listen to the officer's or prosecutors for advice because their job is not to help you out. In fact, their job is to prosecute on behalf of the state. In addition, you also can not rely on the judge for advice. It is true that they know the law, however they are there as a neutral party. They are not  allowed to help and are not allowed to give legal advice. You need an advocate that will help you out along the way and present to you options as the case unfolds. .
