Ronald D. Hedding, Esq., is the founding member of the Hedding Law Firm. Mr. Hedding has an extensive well-rounded legal background in the area of Criminal Law. He has worked for the District Attorney’s Office, a Superior Court Judge, and as the guiding force behind the Hedding Law Firm. His multi-faceted experience sets Mr. Hedding apart and puts him in an elite group of the best Criminal Defense Attorneys in Southern California.

After establishing the Hedding Law Firm, Mr. Hedding dedicated himself towards the pursuit of zealously defending his clients to the highest professional standards. He has traveled all over this Nation defending his clients, protecting their interests, reputation and freedom. It is rare to find a Criminal Defense Attorney with the dual ability to successfully fight a case in our jury system and the uncanny skills to negotiate a favorable disposition for his clients. It is even more rare to find an attorney with the wisdom to know the appropriate decision to make at the right time.

Mr. Hedding has been lead counsel in some of the most sensational criminal cases to be played out in Los Angeles County courthouses and at the Federal level. He has received acclaim in Newspapers, on the Radio and in National Publications. The key to Mr. Hedding’s success, whether the case involves a D.U.I. or Murder Charge, lies in his understanding of the Criminal Justice System and the client’s need to be informed of their best legal options, so they can make the most informed decision in protecting their rights.

“I have been defending clients charged with dui cases for the past twenty five years. I enjoy defending dui cases, because they usually involve normal people, with lives, careers and families, who have been caught by the police drinking alcohol and driving. It is a very scary circumstance for these people and I enjoy quelling their fears and helping then resolve their dui matter in the most favorable way possible! There is nothing like taking back control of your life and getting back your peace of mind, once you know what you are facing and what can be done to help you.”

“A dui case should not define your life. We are in the business of helping good people get out of the criminal justice system as soon as humanly possible. We are looking to handle your dui case discreetly, professionally and with the least embarrassment and loss of rights as possible. Each case spins on its own facts and I encourage you to come and sit down with us so we can educate you on how the system works and what we can do to resolve your matter and put you back on the road.”
