Decio is a smart, no-nonsense lawyer who knows the system and can get things done very quickly. A former prosecutor, he knows how to negotiate with the DA's office to avoid trial, but if needed, is very persuasive in the courtroom.

Decio Rangel Jr. is an outstanding criminal defense lawyer. Not only is he professional, smart and articulate, but he is a very kind & compassionate individual. He is responsive and attentive to his clients, and very easy to work with. And since he is a former prosecutor, he knows exactly how the DAs Office works and has experience in a wide range of criminal cases. I refer every Los Angeles-area criminal case to him and will continue to do so for years to come.

When I found myself facing two misdemeanors in Manhattan Beach - the result of being accused of (don't laugh) erasing chalk from the tire of my new car at a parking meter - I needed a local attorney who knew the players and could just make it all go away. Decio Rangel Jr. is a highly professional yet down to earth attorney who was quick to take my call, spent time on the phone explaining the legal perspective of my situation, and agreed to a fee that fit my budget. He quickly went to work and in the words of the city prosecutor, "successfully persuaded her not to file the case." He appeared with me in a closed door session and made sure I was clear on exactly what I needed to do to fulfill my end of the bargain. In the end, no charges were filed and I walked away with just a small fine for the city's costs - all in a matter of weeks. I highly recommend Mr. Rangel for your legal needs - especially in dealing with the City of Manhattan Beach.
