Gerald was an excellent attorney for our case. He did an outstanding job with our son's case and I would highly recommend him. He was always on time with court, handled himself in the utmost professional manner and dealt with the judge in our case very well. He was on top of appearances and notices, took care of all of the necessary paperwork on time, and always had a positive outlook on our case. He made himself available when needed and always returned calls promptly. We could not have had a better attorney to handle are case and are very pleased with the service we received.

It has been a pleasure knowing Gerry for many years. He is always so focused on helping his clients and very professional. He speaks well when being interviewed on television or when he has been quoted in the Fresno Bee. I would surely recommend him to anyone in need of his service.

If your Looking for a spot on Criminal Defense Attorney. I'd definitely recommend Gerald Schwab. Most down to earth upfront and honest Man. Hands on the results in our experience with his defense could not have turned out better.

Gerald Schwab is definitely an excellent choice as an attorney. I was in a very difficult position, with the potential for my life to take a drastic turn for the worst. However, not only was Gerry able to ease my anxiety, he was able to completely turn my situation around and give me my life back. I was already thinking of the worst possible outcomes and the effect it would have on me. He fortunately was able to effectively outline the truth and facts of my circumstance and get me where I needed to be. He is very communicative and professional. His experience in the realm of law has given him a very effective ability to get things done in court. I can say with confidence you will not regret allowing Mr. Schwab to handle your case. Thanks again Gerry, for everything.

I have known Gerald Schwab for over ten years and have consulted with him on several matters. He knows what he is doing about the law, tactical issues and practical strategies for getting problems solved. Gerry is experienced and effective in criminal law. That came in handy when a friend got in trouble due to a misunderstanding. Most importantly for me, he is direct, candid and has integrity I really respect.

As an attorney myself, I've seen Mark Coleman in the courtroom countless times. He's known for his legal expertise and skill, and always handles himself with respectfulness and poise. When my wife and I were in a serious accident, I thought about handling the matter myself, quickly came to my senses (never represent yourself!), and immediately sought out Mark. I'm glad I did. He brought all the qualities he's known for to our case and helped us reach an outcome we couldn't have imagined. And as someone not accustomed to sitting in the client's seat, my wife and I both particularly appreciated his compassion.

Exceptional attorneys with extensive knowledge of the law. Attorneys and Staff are very caring. Highly recommended.

They only want what pays the most. Too greedy, didnt help or take my case. Snooty lawyers.

Best attorneys in town!

They definitely deserver a 5 star review. I was charged with 3 traffic violations: 1) speeding; 2) no proof of insurance; 3) no proof of vehicle registration. I called them. The lady who answered my phone told me that 2) and 3) are correctable and I can call the traffic court to correct them. Therefore, I just need to pay the fine for violation 1) and additional $60+ for traffic school. She also told me how much the law office charge and it's better to just pay the fine unless I really want to fight it. They don't charge me for anything but they answered my call very politely and professionally. They deserver a 5 star review.

I hired Tina Barberi to handle my DUI case. I totaled my car from hitting a curb. The officers took over an hour or 2 to respond to my accident. After a bunch of court appearances, the charges against me were dismissed because Tina fought really hard to win my case. I was never convicted of my DUI and I am so happy with my results. I will definitely refer her to my family and friends.

I expected top service when paying top dollar. Rather they referred my speeding ticket case to another law firm without my knowledge and approval and lost a winnable case and here i am left with fines and high insurance costs on my commercial driver license. I should have been represented by the lawyer i hired watever the result be. Very very poor and unprofessional. Do not hire.

My husband had a minor traffic violation, VC 21453(c), red arrow turn violation, so I contacted Ms. Barberi’s office in regard to the citation. She charged us a reasonable and fair price. She took care of all the paperwork and court appointments immediately. We never had to worry if something wasn’t taken care of. She even notified us by mail of the upcoming court dates and the outcome of his case which was dismissed with no fine and no point on my husband’s driving record. I would recommend her to anyone else fighting traffic cases because they tell you everything upfront and explain what they can and cannot do for you.

If you are facing any type of criminal or DUI charges, you need to speak to Tina. She is one of the most attentive lawyers I have encountered. She is very knowledgeable with the courts and she cares about her clients. She will explain the potential outcomes regarding your case before you even retain her. She really works hard to make sure they get great results. If you need a great lawyer, you will see that Tina is very informative and will make sure you are properly represented.

I highly recommend Attorney McKneely and his office. He and his staff were very knowledgeable, responsive and reasonable with his billing. I had to retain Attorney McKneely after I was cited while in a national forest. Since I was on Federal land, what I felt (and still do!) was a reasonable mistake on my part had the potential of turning into a "Federal Case" as they say. Attorney McKneely researched the citation, statutes and discussed my case with the US Attorney and was able to quickly resolve the matter for me - lifting a huge weight off my shoulders. THANK YOU!

Mike McKneely is the best criminal defense attorney! I was in a bind, and we had to find a lawyer quickly. Mike came highly recommended, and after my wife and I spoke with him, we hired him immediately. To say that my wife and I were distraught over what had happened was an understatement, as we were overwhelmed and panicked. He assured us that he could help, and not only did he got the fine lowered, but he got the entire case dismissed. Mike worked quickly, effectively, and aggressively on my behalf, and he was an absolute lifesaver! Mike has extensive experience and an impressive background. He kept us informed every step of the way throughout the whole process, always answered all of our questions, and even took the time to speak with us on the phone. He described the process in detail, what we could expect, and what the time frame would be. I could not be happier with the outcome, which was a dismissed case, a lower fine, and a huge sense of relief. I have recommended him to family, friends, and co-workers. He's dedicated, professional, extremely knowledgeable, and he fights for you, every step of the way. My wife and I can't thank you enough!

Mr McKneely was very professional and straight forward with us. He had an uncanny ability to still the forebodings of my father. All in all the outcome received was reasonable. Mr McKneely will be receiving my recommendation if anyone I know has the need for legal counsel.

I genuinely can't recommend Mike enough. He is an honest, trustworthy individual; one you can count on to give you the best possible advice and attention throughout your case. Thanks again for everything!

RECOGNIZED. RESPECTED. & UNDERSTOOD.* Simply put, hands down Rick Horowitz is the best attorney in California! I was facing serious time in State Prison due to allegations which were false; & in my time of great struggle Rick Horowitz was the light at the end of the tunnel. He assisted me in all areas of court issues as well as life with my depression & anxiety because of the court. He helped me remain positive and always reassured me WE were in this together. I put my faith in him and true enough my case was fully dismissed in court! He gave me a fresh new start at life- I could never be grateful enough. His presence in court is recognized, respected, & understood. If you want the best representation call Rick Horowitz.

Rick is very professional and expedient. He really cares and seeks the best possible outcome. He is on top of all these things extremely respectful and honest. I recommend his law office to anyone seeking legal representation or council.

Rick recently handled my case and we had a great outcome. It was not a major case, but Rick handled it like it was. He and his staff were always available to answer any questions that myself or my family had (and we had a lot) I am more than satisfied with the outcome of my case. God willing I will never be in trouble with the law again, but if the need arises I will definitely be calling The law office of Rick Horowitz. He's a great attorney and a good man he put my and my family's minds at ease from day one. Thank you Rick for treating my case with the highest priority and utmost respect and most of all for getting a better result than I had hoped for.

To whom it may concern: My name is Yolanda Garcia, Mr. Rick Horowitz represented my brother in one of our toughest times in life. My brother was facing a real serious felony charge that carried a lengthy sentence, in which Mr. Horowitz fought real hard an his expertise was able to minimize his sentence greatly and my brother was released. Rick was always there to answer our questions and we always left the office feeling confidant because we knew we can trust him. We trusted him with our brothers case and he more then exceeded...If I ever needed a lawyer he would be the 1st one I would call. Thank you Rick Horowitz!!

Rick is a dedicated attorney who will work hard for you. I don't know where I would be without him, he got all my cases dismissed and was there for everything. Rick turned what was a terrifyingly horrible experience into a huge relief and I am so grateful. If you are looking for the best Rick is your guy. I highly recommend him, he is incredibly knowligible and compassionate and if you're in trouble and you need help you want him on your side.

As my case came to a satisfactory plead settlement, I feel totally relieved and at peace. I am forever grateful and thankful for everything Brian has done for me during this process, from the initial motion to 'suppress all evidence' based on discovery, to his 'plead deal' final negotiation. His savvy advice and caring professionalism were always reassuring and supportive. To choose his Law Firm to represent me was the best and most excellent decision I made after mistakes made during difficult times. I highly recommend his Professional Services and Representation. Thank You Brian!

Brain and his team were quick to respond to my call. His advice and help saved me from future problems. Easy and friendly person to talk to. Any legal issue he is the lawyer who will deliver for you. Don’t waste your time calling around. Just give him a call and save your time and energy. Brain is professional who will take care of your legal problems.

Brian was amazing and extremely helpful! He went out of his way and helped my case by meeting up with the other party and discussing my case before I even said I was going to hire him. He was honest and consistent. He was very sufficient in his work and really went above and beyond to help me better understand what I can and can't be charged with. I didn't end up hiring him because monies were tight and he assured me that I didn't really need too! However he did guide me in the right direction with my DUI cases and helped shine soo much light down my path of worries and anxiety! I would definitely hands down refer him to anyone whom is confused, worried, and needs any TRUE legal advice! Keep up the great work, Brian!

I called Brian's office yesterday and received a return call almost immediately. When I spoke with Brian he had my situation explained and cleared up within 30 minutes. I would call Brian in a split second if I ever needed an attorney and would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you so very much again Brian.

I can't thank Brian enough for getting my son off a high speed speeding ticket. As a paralegal for 27 years, I did my research before contacting his office and I knew he would be the best lawyer to fight for us. I had a tremdous confidence in him and he went through for us. Thank you, Brian. You are the best lawyer in Fresno for sure.

My best decision was not the night I got stopped (of course). My best decision was the day I hired Terry Wapner and Wapner Jones, PC. to represent me. Mr. Wapner took care of me and guided me through the DMV and court hearings. I got a good deal. The blood result was a .15. He did some investigating with my blood test and because of that, I got it reduced to a wet & reckless. Deborah, his office person was kind and helpful also. Thank you!!

I am a nurse and hired Mr. Wapner to help me. I take a couple of prescription medications for anxiety. I don't drink. I was stopped for speeding and they found my prescriptions in my purse. They arrested me for DUI but i wasn't drunk. I take my prescriptions like I am supposed to. Mr. Wapner and his staff helped me get through this. he was able to show that I was not under the influence and the attorney dismissed the case with just a speeding charge that I paid a fine for. I am thankful that Mr. Wapner was there for me. He saved my job and my career.

I was arrested for DUI after leaving a nice dinner where I had a couple glasses of wine. I probably shouldn't have driven but I thought I was ok to drive. Terry Wapner was my lawyer. I didn't have to go to court until we had a trial. He was very effective in court...way better than the prosecutor. The judge liked all of our motions before the trial and at the end of the day, the prosecutor dismissed the case. We didn't have to finish the trial at all. Mr. Wapner was really good and seemed to know more than the other attorney. The result really helped me.

I can say without question that Terry is one of the finest DUI attorneys in California and certainly the best DUI lawyer in Fresno. Everything from his trial record, his continual attendance at DUI seminars across the country, and his peer endorsements are what sets him apart. I've known Terry for the better part of five years and you simply won't have a better experience than working with him and his partner.

Pointless to hire them all they do is show up in court for you nothing else changes. They never communicate with you even with you’re paying thousands of dollars you’re the one who has to reach out to them to find out everything that’s going on. But he was sure happy to take my money and act like he was going to help. It’s a waste of money that could have gone to something else beneficial. Also if you reach out to them during the case or after the case they are very short with you and do not want any communication. It’s very standoffish. Very unsatisfied.

Honest, intelligent, hard working, educated. Attorney Rooker is a great advocate for his clients. I often reach out to him for assistance on California issues. He has a Masters Degree and understands science that can help your DUI and drug cases. Very very few defense attorneys in the US can match his level of expertise.

I went to Jonathan Rooker after being charged for a DUI and am thoroughly impressed with his work. Rooker is extremely personable and put me at ease through the stressful process. He is attentive, gets things done in a timely manner, and gets excellent results. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for representation.

My daughter and I met with Jonathan Rooker after my daughter was sited for a DUI. Although we ended up not hiring Jonathan to represent us in court due to the details of our particular case, I would not hesitate to do so if it was warranted. Jonathan was a great sounding board, honest, easy to talk to, and a great help to us. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of representation, and wouldn't hesitate at all to use him myself if needed.

Great attorney, highly recommend using his services!! Very knowledgeable and the best at what he does. Truly awesome experience and made me feel confident and comfortable through the whole process!

I got into a bit of DUI trouble and I didn’t know who to turn to. Luckily, my friend referred me to Jonathan. I was very uneasy about the whole situation as I don’t get into trouble with the law or anything else of that matter. I wasn’t sure what the next steps were, and when I sat down with Jonathan, he asked me questions about what happened, took me step by step of what was going to incur next, and was happy to answer any questions I had about my DUI case. At the end of my meeting I felt at ease and was happy with what Jonathan had told me. He made me feel very comfortable and I could tell he really wanted to help, not just because it was his job, but because he GENUINELY cared. During my arraignment and pre-trial, Jonathan did everything he could in his power to win my case, and did!! He did a great job! I am very happy with the outcome. Thank you, Jonathan! You’re the best!

Jeff is a top notch, experienced and knowledgeable lawyer. He was easy to talk to and understood my situation. Jeff was always honest and transparent in our discussions.  I appreciated his professionalism and quick response to my requests, questions or concerns. Jeff provided every alternative that could possibly work for me to improve my situation. He was always on my side during this most difficult time and got me through it with the most desirable outcome.   I whole heartedly recommend Jeff.

Jeff is very professional. He doesn't make promises he can't keep and is very straight forward. Best choice I made was hiring him for one of my cases. The outcome was beyond my expectations. Would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

I can not say enough great things about this law firm, I have had the wonderful pleasure of doing an externship with them through my school program. Both Jeff and Kevin are very nice people to work with and for, along with his staff the whole operation is first class! One of the things that impressed me is how they pay attention to detail for each client they take on to represent, Jeff is extremely knowledgeable and knows what he is doing when it comes to a DUI matter, I had the opportunity to go to court with him a few times and wow! What a great lawyer, Kevin is also extremely well at what he does! If you ever need good lawyers and a good law firm to represent you, do not go to anyone else but here!

All talk no action in my daughter's case. In our first consultation with mr Hammerschmidt he made it sound like he was going to help my pregnant daughter. He charges $400 an hour. We paid him for 12 hours upfront per his contact. He made decisions without consulting us. He didn't do what we told him to do. He had very little contact with us after we paid him.. My daughter's in prison and she's 35 weeks pregnant. I can only talk to her once a month. I'm ready to have a nervous breakdown. So unless you're someone very important or rich, hire him then maybe he'll help you.

Best decision my family ever made! Jeff Hammerschmidt is a true professional.
