I would like to thank attorney Prizzia, for defending my son and taking the time to listen and care! She was highly recommended and now I understand why. After being disappointed by public defenders, she proved that there are good attorneys out there. I hope others will follow her standards.

Frances Prizzia has been a Godsend in my life. She is knowledgeable, thorough and extremely intelligent while being down to earth with a warm and friendly personality. I have worked with her for over 3 years of a very trying time in my life, and from the very beginning she was able to get me released from custody, she was able to tie multiple cases from different courts together which allowed me to only have to deal with one consequence for all of it (which was very minimal, thanks to her). During this time she was complimented by the Judge when he told me "Your lawyer has done a great job for you today." (Something I already knew). Whenever I went to court I was able to have peace of mind because Frances Prizzia was fighting for me. She is not afraid to get in the ring (courtroom) and fight for the best possible outcome for me and my life. I don't know what I would have done or where I would have been if it wasn't for the Law Office of Frances Prizzia. I will keep her on my team for life and recommend her to any and everyone that may need excellent representation.

Best of Southern California's Legal Teams, Law Office of Frances Prizzia!
I am a high profile security agent and was wrongly accused of a crime. Frances and her legal team uncovered the truth and successfully defended my case and protected my professional standing. I strongly recommend her to anyone fighting a criminal case. Sometimes the Law doesn't always know the pertinent details, but someone that knows the Law can teach and prove the Law.
Go Frances!
And thank you so much!

Frances is a determined and thorough attorney. She took a case that looked daunting on the surface. She ensured that we had a fair chance if it went to trial (which it did). She was thorough and her extreme attention to detail proved invaluable both in the investigation she had conducted and in how she performed in court. It took 8 months and much work but ended in our favor. She may look harmless but she is actually a feisty powerful attorney.

Past Client


I am a professional high profile security agent with a strong background in protecting some of Hollywood's finest. My profession was on the line for an accusation with no merit and I was recommended to Frances Prizzia. I am thankful that I found such an understanding and knowledgeable attorney. She and her legal team assured me from the start, of this short lived case, that all would work out and be fine. I was under pressure and great concern, Frances was a soothing and swift defense attorney whom knows her way around the court(s) and the psychology of the process. Within 30 days the case was dismissed and my background and professional future were sustained. Do yourself a favor, Retain Frances Marie Prizzia. You can't lose.

Marc


My family has retained Ms. Prizzia for a very serious legal matter that required skills such as knowledge of felony law, a professional manner, tenacity, good inter-personal skills with other members of the legal community, patience and compassion. Hiring Ms. Prizzia was the best decision I could have made. We needed to remove the felony charges from my son's record while maintaining a measure of accountability on his part, a difficult balance. As my son is a repeat offender, the DA was intent on the maximum sentence. Frances worked closely with the DA to achieve a compromise that served our goals. I highly recommend her services.

Kathleen


I highly recommend Ms. Prizzia's services. She is very helpful, kind, and easy to talk to. She really listens to your questions and concerns and doesn't make you feel rushed. I have hired her to help me with 2 court cases now. Her office is flexible with you on setting up a payment plan too, which really helped me out. She is now working on getting my record expunged.

Shannon


Ms. Prizzia and her team did an excellent job making sure my small mistake didn't turn into a big expensive one. Her team kept me out of court and completely informed on all aspects of the case. If you make a mistake and find yourself in some legal trouble don't hesitate and call her, she understands and helps you to make it right.
