Attorneys at The Hedding Law Firm


Over the past 25 years, I have worked for a high-profile Superior Court judge as his go-to person when it came to deciding critical legal issues, worked for the District Attorney's Office in one of the highest crime areas in Los Angeles County, and worked for the State Bar of California as a Commissioner (tasked with investigating potential judges for the Governor of California).

Even though the above credential can not be matched by most attorneys, I think what truly sets me apart is that in 1994, I began practicing exclusively criminal defense and have handled thousands of cases and litigated over 200 jury trials for my clients.

My Father has been involved with the practice of law and has had a law firm in the San Fernando Valley since the 1970s and is well-known and respected. We joined forces about ten years ago and do everything to ensure that our clients are treated with respect and given the best defense available in the criminal defense world.

We aim to constantly figure out how to put our client's life back together and make them better than they were before they met us. Probably the best thing I can tell you about my father is that everywhere I go to court in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, judges, prosecutors, bailiffs, other defense attorneys, and court staff tell me what a great person he is and how proud I should be to have such a wonderful man as my father!

Having a family business in the legal field is a significant advantage. It gives us strong respect and credibility in the criminal court arena. Judges and prosecutors know we come from a long line of attorneys and are respected in every aspect of the criminal field.

Having a family of attorneys on your side is an advantage, and we look forward to putting our skills and expertise to work for you. There is no substitute for a long-standing staple of the criminal defense community, and I encourage you to come and sit down with us and see what we can do to help you. We look forward to meeting you and helping you in your criminal matter.

Our Attorneys at the Hedding Law Firm know what to do and who to talk to protect our client's interests. Our attorneys go to court every day and handle matters for our clients. We do not rely on less seasoned attorneys to take care of business; we do it ourselves and have an incredible success rate. Our San Fernando Valley criminal defense attorneys focus primarily on defending clients in courts throughout Los Angeles County.

Best Criminal Defense Attorney in California

I think what makes me enjoy what I do so much is, it's helping people.  People get in trouble.  They lose control of their life.  They're arrested.  Everything's on the line. 

They need somebody who will come in like a surgeon and work for them – figure out the best course of action for you and your situation.  That's done by meeting and talking to you about your case. Discuss what evidence the government may or may not have against you, and then decide in what direction we will travel. 

Having your road map, especially in a criminal case, is the best strategy. You don't want to go marching down the road, and it's the wrong way.  You'll never get to your destination of becoming clear of your criminal case if you set out on the wrong path or with the wrong attorney.

That's why I have you come in and meet with me.  I think it's crucial that you feel comfortable with your attorney, you believe your attorney is going to help you, and you think that anybody that your attorney comes in contact with will be impressed by the fact that they're knowledgeable. They work hard, and they get results.  That's what I'm all about.

Ron Hedding, from the Hedding Law Firm, is letting you know that if you need the best criminal defense attorney in California, come to somebody who has handled thousands of criminal cases over a long career, all over the nation, all over the state of California, both at the state and federal level. 

Hard work beats true talent.  Here, we have both.  We work hard.  We've been doing it for a long time.  It's something I have a passion for.  It's something that I'm good at.  We're all good at something. Defending people, negotiating, fighting cases at trial, winning motions – that's what it's all about. So pick up the phone now and ask for a meeting with Ron Hedding.
