What state are you from?
My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
If you disagree with the Assessor's value, you should first discuss your disagreement with the Assessor's Office (http://assessor.lacounty.gov/contact-us/). If the Assessor's Office does not resolve the matter to your satisfaction, you will still have the right to file an appeal with the Assessment Appeals Board (http://bos.lacounty.gov/Services/AssessmentAppeals.aspx).
Here is the form to claim a refund and it must be filed within 4 years not 3: http://assessor.lacounty.gov/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Refund.pdf

Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer if satisfied.
I would hire an attorney to be sure but you might simply miss on appealing 2011, you should still be able to appeal subsequent years such as 2012 and on. But yes, an attorney with connections and knowledge of the LA county procedures should be most helpful.
I would look for an LA county tax attorney. You can search for 1 on martindale.com or lawyers.com by specialty and look for reviews to find an attorney that suits you.
