  • Exemplary in his diligence, determination of correct strategy, and delivered excellent value.
    Fred has assisted me and our family on a number of matters since Sept. 2007, and in each instance has been exemplary in his diligence, determination of correct strategy, and delivered excellent value. One of Fred's distinct strengths is that he is a good listener ... processes all requisite input, and then offers a comprehensive approach to a solution.

  • Do yourself a good service, make The Right Choice and hire this law firm to represent you.
    Dear reader, we obviously have something in common...a past mistake or mistakes that resulted in a criminal record. When I reached a point of accountability and responsibility I sought to hire an attorney whom would assist my endeavors to have my record expunged. I reviewed two separate lawers, one being Mr. Thiagarajah. I decided to hire an attorney closer to me out of traveling convenience. After years of attempts and high expense, it was repeated failure. Discouraged, I began to reconsider my initial choice between lawyers. Determined to succeed in the next step to rebuilding my life, I reached out to Mr. Thiagarajah. During a consultation he reviewed my case details and agreed to represent me before the court for a very reasonable fee. I can't convey with words the feeling of confidence I had in Mr. Thiagarajah and his knowledge of the legal judicial system from just one consultation. I knew this was the law firm to represent me. I hired this attorney to handle my cases. Mr. Thiagarajah and his legal assistant maintained contact and correspondence via email, advising, educating and notifying me of every detail involving my cases. In 2016 through the expertise in his field and Mr. Thiagarajah's diligent efforts, the court expunged my felony. This was a great victory and obstacle removed from my road to rehabilitation and reintegration into society as a law abiding working class citizen. However, the court decided not to expunge a misdemeanor I was convicted of 24 years ago. Mr. Thiagarajah and his legal assistant advised me to wait a year to present my petition to the court once again. This month of November 2017 Mr. Thiagarajah represented me before the court once more and I was awarded the 24 year old misdemeanor being expunged. This law firm backs its slogan. They are experts in their field, knowledgeable and understanding of law and the judicial system. They are professional, attentive to detail and care about the outcome of their efforts. I would highly recommend Mr. Thiagarajah to anyone seeking legal council that strives for success and epitomizes their positive reputation. I'm beyond happy and extremely grateful to Mr. Thiagarajah and his legal assistant for all of their efforts to assist me in having my felony expunged and a 24 year old misdemeanor expunged. The second time around I made the right choice. Do yourself a good service, make The Right Choice and hire this law firm to represent you.

  • I would recommend Fred to anyone and everyone in a tough spot.
    Calling Mr. Fred Thiagarajah was a great decision! I made a horrible mistake one afternoon and as a result I was later arrested for Felony DUI with great bodily injury. I was looking at real prison time. I consulted with many attorneys, all told me the odds were stacked against me and all gave me the impression that prison time was inevitable. I ended up making an economical decision and hired an attorney close to my home. After talking to friends and family, I came to understand it would be in my very best interest to invest in a "great attorney" as the charges against me are serious and are going to affect the rest of my life. So I did my homework, I researched and I researched and I found Mr Fred Thiagarajah! I met with Mr Fred Thiagarajah soon after and he provided hope. He made me feel my life was not lost and told me it's going to be tough but he assured me all is not doomed. I got my money back form the other attorney and retained Fred. Yes, Fred cost more but was worth every penny. I would recommend Fred to anyone and everyone in a tough spot. After a long year of worrying, my case has been resolved. I will not be doing any jail time! The fines I must pay are minimal! I am more than pleased with Fred and his entire staff! They were always available to answer my questions and always addressed all my concerns.
    I made a huge mistake! I will never make a mistake similar again..
    ATTORNEY NIRANJAN FRED THIAGARAJAH DID A GREAT JOB!!!
    I was truly blessed!

  • They are very knowledgeable and comfortable to work with.
    It was the best decision I have ever made that I contacted and retained Fred as the defense attorney for my son’s case. My son was recently involved in a DUI car accident and charged with two felonies plus imprisonment.
    Fred and his partner Ryan have successfully defended my son by dropping the charges to a much minor offense with no jail time. They are very knowledgeable and comfortable to work with. Having them to defend my son’s case made our family felt at ease at that most vulnerable moment.
    I will definitely recommend Fred, at The Right Choice Law office, if you are looking for the right choice of legal representation to stay on top of your case.

  • Over all best lawyer choose him if your in trouble.
    Fred was such a good help when it came to my case I was facing 2 years in jail for probation violation and false identification given to a police officer. Fred helped me out tremendously by getting me 9 months of house arrest instead this was the best possible outcome I was looking for he also cares about his clients and is easy to get a hold of. He’s willing to work with you depending on your financial situation. Over all best lawyer choose him if your in trouble.

  • Professional and caring!
    I am so thankful for the fantastic job Fred did in representing my daughter for a second dui charge, during probation for a previous one. She was facing serious charges and possible lengthy jail time. Her felony was reduced to a misdemeanor and she was able to come home to her family. The staff in his office were so friendly and always there for us when we had questions or concerns. Professional and caring! Thank you Fred, and everyone in his office.

  • I am so thankful I hired Mr. T. for my case!
    Mr. Thiagarajah and his team did a wonderful job on my DUI case. First, they always kept me informed and always responded to my calls. His staff is so friendly - they make you feel like family. Second, they got a great result for me. What I really liked is that they went back to court on my case multiple times to keep fighting for a better offer and they listened to what I wanted and made sure that my goals were met. I am so thankful I hired Mr. T. for my case!

  • Today, life is good. Thanks Fred.
    Fred fought my DUI case (3rd DUI) in OC that occurred while on probation in LA county and Orange county. Fred was referred to us by a family friend. This family friend happened to be a DA in LA county. I've had a lot of pretty unresponsive attorneys. Fred and his staff were there to always answer my questions. I can tell Fred was very proactive in trying to get the best possible outcome because he asked me to get letters and do certain things to help my case. Despite being on probation in two counties, with other past convictions as well - I only ended up spending 5 hours in jail and some house arrest along with a court program. I took the court program upon the recommendation of Fred. He helped not only with court but helped me realize I should take this program if I really wanted to live a better life. Today, life is good. Thanks Fred

    Thank you for having represented me and for having made this process so easy and painless.
    Thank you for making the rest of my life a lot more peaceful.
    Keep up with the good work.

  • He saved my professional career. I am SO thankful that I was represented by Fred.
    I was referred to Fred, and it really was the best decision to go with him. I 110% recommend Fred. Fred is stellar. He is kind and respectful, but don't be fooled, if needed he will be assertive in the courtroom. It was my first time getting involved in the criminal justice system and I was being falsely accused. I was confused by the legal process and overwhelmed by my situation. Fred went above and beyond and took care of everything. When I was anxious, he took the time to explain things to me. He responds quickly to calls and emails; he breaks down confusing legal language; he will go above and beyond to fight for you. He is simply stellar, and it is no wonder that he is the recipient of many awards. In the end, my hearing only lasted 20 minutes because Fred knew what questions to ask; Fred made it clear to the judge that I was falsely accused. He saved my professional career. I am SO thankful that I was represented by Fred. I highly recommend him.

  • I highly recommend him if you need someone who is going to make you feel like a friend and not just a client.
    Fred was really great when I consulted with him. We played a little bit of phone tag when I first called, but he ended up calling me in the evening while he was home making dinner! He took the time to hear what I had going on, he took the time to brainstorm ideas and angles, and he took the time to discuss with me my expectations and possible outcomes. We met one more time in person and discussed my case at length. Again he was kind and extremely helpful. He really takes the time and explains things very well for his clients. I highly recommend him if you need someone who is going to make you feel like a friend and not just a client. Some attorneys that I spoke to don't even really take the time to truly understand what you have going on. They only care about the facts (which I get), but not the person dealing with the difficult problem. You don't get that feeling with Fred.

  • He really does magic. Don’t miss out on this gem.

    Fred has been with me for 6 years fighting cases for me on and off through my teen and young adult years.
    Not only has Fred always secured the best possible deals for me, trial has always been out of the window due to the unfairness of the system, it’s only an option for people who have a very clean record or very petty misdemeanors. I don’t have that. That’s not Fred’s fault, it’s mine, but even with those circumstances, when my wife lied against me and wanted to throw away the keys on me, causing me to face 20+ years in prison (33 was the high term) and got me charged with 12 felonies...
    Fred was able to talk the DA down to 67 days in jail, and 3 years post release supervision (probation) (formal)
    He also did this at an amazing rate, due to the family being with him for a while and due to my mom going through a divorce at the time.
    Fred is an experienced trial attorney as well don’t get me wrong.
    He’s won over 90% of his jury trials.

    I’ve snapped at him and gotten angry with him sure, due to my own drug use and instability, however Fred always was there for me.

    He’s an amazing person and his staff is even more amazing.
    Gay (his assistant) is an angel
    Anne is very professional and very accurate/nice
    Not sure if they are still with him, however he’s great and if your case is serious this is the guy to To go to. Nobody else but him.

    Thanks Fred, for everything.
    Sorry we ended the way we did cause I took anti anxiety meds before I came to take the last deal you got me, and snapped at you, I know trial wasn’t a good option in that case either and I appreciate you keeping me out of jail. The system isn’t fair and you navigate it perfectly. .
    He got a phony burglary charge dropped to trespassing (misdemeanor) without so much as stepping foot in the courthouse, and made all appearances for me either with assistants or staff,
    He really does magic. Don’t miss out on this gem.
    With love,
    Patrick.

  • I am very happy with Fred's hard work on this case.
    I hired Fred to help a family member who had been charged with selling alcohol to a minor. This was my family member's second offense for the same crime, but Fred was still able to work out a deal that resulted in no jail. I am very happy with Fred's hard work on this case.

  • Fred was very compassionate about my daughter case.
    Fred was my life blessing. He saved my daughter and was able to dismiss her case in two trials. I remember one day, I called on Fred's office on Friday evening and found Fred is answering the phone by himself as a way of responding to clients emergencies. Fred was very compassionate about my daughter case. He is a real blessing. I would highly recommend partnering with him

  • He is a trustworthy lawyer.
    He is a lawyer with rich professional knowledge. He is not arrogant. He is very gracious. Because my language is not very good, he is still very patient and responsible, and solves all problems for me. He Is a trustworthy lawyer, send the best wishes to Fred!

  • If you want the best criminal defense attorney on your side, Fred Thiagarajah is not the just the Right Choice, he's the only choice.
    I was unfairly accused of domestic violence against my wife. Although I explained what happened to the police, they took her word over mine and I was arrested and ultimately charged with domestic violence. I looked around for the best attorney I could find and hired Fred Thiagarajah at Right Choice Law. This was the best decision I ever made. Fred went over my case in detail and assured me that we could fight this case and win. His office staff are helpful and responsive. Fred kept me informed throughout the case and outlined our strategy for trial. He knew exactly how the case was going to play out and everything happened just the way he expected. He already knew what the DA was going to do at each step of the case and he was already prepared with an answer. In the end, all charges were dismissed against me. If you want the best criminal defense attorney on your side, Fred Thiagarajah is not the just the Right Choice, he's the only choice.

  • If your in trouble YOU NEED TO CALL FRED!
    I hired an attorney that had no idea what he was doing. I called Fred and immediately new he was absolutely what I wanted in an attorney. Fred knows the LAW and will be with you all the way. My case was dissmised two days before trial thanks to Fred. He was not only my attorney but also a friend. His office manager Gay is just the best, always helping me with what she could and I'd call her just to vent and she always listened. If your in trouble YOU NEED TO CALL FRED! Thank you Fred for everything.

    Having a compassionate and responsive lawyer is a must in critical situations. I am very happy I called the office of Mr. Thiagarajah. His entire team was very involved with my cases. They kept me abreast of any changes with respects to courts with understanding and compassion. Mr. Thiagarajah negotiated very well on behalf. He is exceptional lawyer. He truly does have his heart invested in his clients and trying resolve the matter in a the best way for the clients. Under the circumstances, I was truly blessed to have him represent me.

  • He got my 3 misdemeanors dismissed and was able to change the plea to "not guilty".
    Fred called me within 5 mins after my inquiries on avvo. He got my 3 misdemeanors dismissed and was able to change the plea to "not guilty". Now I can put " no" on employment applications. It was worth every dollar. I did not even have to come to the hearing... his team is fast and they did a wonderful job. I highly recommend anyone who wants to get their charges dismissed to go through Fred. They made it simple and easy for me.

  • Hiring Fred for my case was the best decision I have made to ensure I received the most favorable results.
    Fred and his team made sure I was informed and confident through my entire case. They made extra effort to reach out and communicate the moment any new details were available. I certainly feel that I was up to date with all of my case details as they occurred. With this being my first offence, I was completely out of my element but Fred's team ensured I was knowledgeable throughout the whole process. I highly recommend The Law Office of Fred Thiagarajah. He is extremely professional and will explain in detail everything you are facing and what to expect in the future in relation to your case. He is backed by a highly friendly and patient staff. Hiring Fred for my case was the best decision I have made to ensure I received the most favorable results.
