Subject: LDME Announces Wind Down

Dear Friends & Clients

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the wind down of LDME. With the recent action by LDF removing the Firm from its provider list, we are left with little choice. Most of our attorneys have now left to open their own office or join other Firms. Below is their contact information. We have no doubt that the below LDME attorneys will carry on the mantra of LDME to aggressively fight for their clients and you will be in good hands.

We will remain open during the wind down process to answer questions and facilitate the transfer of cases.

We are proud to have built up the largest and best police defense firm in California. We loved the work and our clients. We wish all of our supporters the best as they transition to new legal representation.

God bless and be safe.
