I am so grateful I hired Simon. He is truly the best in what he does. With his guidance, he was able to calm most of my nerves and get me the best possible outcome with my case until the end. He knows what to expect and has handled similar cases like mine, so I knew I was in good hands. His preparation is impeccable and he will not give up on you. He successfully proved my innocence; and for that, I am forever grateful. THANK YOU, SIMON!

Simon gets a BIG THUMBS UP!!! He is a remarkable attorney in many ways. When talking to him, it doesn't feel like you're talking to a lawyer, but to a friend. He listens carefully with a genuine, sympathetic ear because he really cares about his clients. What I appreciated the most is his thorough knowledge of the law, coupled with his experience, because he was able to give me a clear picture about the process and what I could expect regarding my case. In short, he put my mind at ease very quickly because he is an exceptional attorney with great communication skills and smarts. If you are feeling anxiety and want to hire an advocate who will fight for you, getting you the best outcome possible, do not hesitate to go with Simon Aval! It will be the best decision you've ever made. I couldn't be happier with my choice!

I highly recommend Simon, Very professional and dedicated to the mission at hand, honest and always there when we had a question. Now He's been part of my family not as only as an attorney but as a friend. Simply the best.

Wow...wow...wow!!! Simon Aval is a 10 star not a five star. Simon has handled my brothers case not once but twice for the same possession with priors. Simon is an attorney who is dedicated to his clients and his clients families. He does not sympathize with one because of the circumstances, he takes it personally as if it was one of his loved ones incarcerated. Simon has passion and loves what he does and has proven it to our family twice. A conviction that should have been 12-20 years due to priors and was looking at a strike, was sentenced to four years with half, county time, and no strike. His dedication is factual and Simon does not sugar coat anything. He makes sure you understand all the fine lines and clarifies what we are not knowledgeable with the law and our rights. Our communication was exceptional and I was kept up to date with the case if there were any changes. Nothing was ever hidden. If you are looking for the BEST CRIMINAL ATTORNEY, look no further...Simon is the one!!!

Simon expertly handled all aspects of my case. He thoroughly prepared me and worked quickly for the best possible outcome. He was readily available throughout the process for all of my questions and concerns. His knowledge and professionalism afford him the highest of recommendations.

There are good lawyers, great lawyers, then there's Matt... The best criminal defense attorney in Los Angeles! From day one Mr. Cargal was always there for me... I would call or text at odd hours of the night, he always responded. Matt Cargal compassionately listens, produces, and delivers! Thank you for everything Matt, GOD bless!

I got into a situation (Charged for vandalism) a little over two months ago. I met with Cargal and hired him to represent me. He adviced me not to attend court proceedings and represented me in all proceedings. Matt got the case completely dismissed on the 3rd day of court. I highly recommend Matthew Cargal; he is professional, understanding and readily accessible will give him 10 stars if possible

Matt is a great lawyer. Not only did he really go to bat for me, but he walked me through the entire court hearing, which I was very nervous about. He is very good at helping you understand what can otherwise be an intimidating process.

I came across Matt because my boyfriend had gone to him in the past and got good results. I had couple of warrants because I didn't complete the classes that I needed to do for a DUI that I got. I had contacted different lawyers just to see how I felt about each one and to see what they would say my options were. When I spoke to Matt he made me feel like I was gonna be ok. Explained to me everything that I needed to know and explained what he could do to help me fix it. He removed my warrants and re instated my classes and everything that I needed to get done without me having to go to court. I got him another case for my uncle that had a warrant and was arrested and he went to court for him. He was able to get him one year probation when it was gonna be 3 years and some classes. He's very professional and friendly I would highly recommend his services you won't regret it. Thank you Matt!

If you're looking for an attorney who is honest, professional, quick to answer ANY questions + 20 years experience look no further, Matt Cargal is your guy. Over the years he has not only helped my family but myself as well he is reasonably priced & lets just say he does NOT disappoint!!!!! Contact him, you wont regret it :)

I had the pleasure of being represented by Andrew years ago when he was a public defender in Pasadena. I had no idea who I was given or what he was capable of but let me tell you back then he was just as passionate, hard working, and non judgmental as he is now. Unfortunately, I had to call Andrew to save the day again!! Now, its 10 years later and I was facing a D.A. in Pasadena that was literally the least compassionate and not to mention was just out for blood. Every single person that went before not only got a tongue lashing but also got no break from her at all. Marlene Sanchez is her name and trust me when I say you don't just need a lawyer, YOU NEED ANDREW. I had tried to face her by my lonesome but as I went to each court date something changed from court date to court date. The public defenders were a far cry from public defender I was granted when Andrew was around. First it was community service. The next court date, I didn't have enough hours completed so, I made sure at my next date I had more than enough. So here I go with my "more than enough" hours and she tells me she has to reconsider my community service because of something she just found in my file! I had had 4-5 court dates prior, not once was there an issue. My public defender which had changed every time I was in court had no idea what has going on. No one would listen to me, no one would check the court reporters transcript, no one took notes, everyone blamed me for their mistakes. That day I called Andrew. I explained my situation and he handled everything for me. I swear, when he walked in the courtroom the DA lit up like she had just seen JESUS. Every other attorney in the hallway kept telling me how great my lawyer was and how he was the best in California. I can't even tell you how much Andrew and The Leventhal Firm helped me, in the courtroom and OUT of the courtroom. He is an outstanding human being. Worth every single penny.

Exceptional in all aspects. I went to Andrew and the Leventhal Firm over a year ago in need of legal expertise. Andrew was straightforward and kind from the start he told me where they would start and as things progressed he would keep me informed. Andrew and Yvonne are blessings they fought hard from the start and there persistence and dedication won in the end. Over a year with hundreds of communications and hundreds of hurdles and delays later Andrew and Yvonne kept me in the loop and handled everything in a brilliant matter they literally altered my life for the better. They truly care and are wonderful people and deserving of the highest praises I have to offer. Thank you to Andrew, Yvonne, and the entire Leventhal firm I will be forever grateful to your dedication and amazing work.

Excellent attorneys! They got the job done quickly, affordably, and professionally. I highly recommend!

If you need great service and a great lawyer and a person who will keep you in good hands, the only person that comes to mind is Andrew Levanthal. He represented me in court and went above and beyond for me and set my future back in tune!

Andrew Leventhal of The Leventhal Firm successfully defended against six felony charges filed by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. In preparing the defense, Mr. Leventhal and his colleague, Ms. Yvonne Rodriguez, discovered that the defendant’s 4 th Amendment rights had been violated, resulting in the disappearance of exonerating evidence. A Trombetta-Youngblood motion was thus filed. Subsequently, all charges were dismissed as the District Attorney did not have sufficient evidence to proceed. I would highly recommend retaining The Leventhal Firm in a criminal case. Retaining Andrew is your best defense.

I was represented better than I could have ever imagined! I was blessed to have found him. Christopher Miller fought hard for me. He went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a great outcome. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. I was highly content with the outcome of his work. I will forever be grateful for his help!! Definitely recommend him!!

Chris has been excellent since the beginning. I had a good feeling about him when I had a phone consultation with him and he gave me lots of information but also was not pressuring me to hire him. He said at the end of the phone consultation that even if I don't hire him, feel free to call him with any questions. I found him on Thumbtack and he got back to me instantly and called me as soon as I gave him my phone number. He gave me an excellent price, slightly lower than some other competing attorneys. I wanted to know him more before deciding to hire him so he met with me at his office to discuss the situation further. He is an excellent listener and it really felt like he genuinely cared about me. Of all the attorneys I consulted with, I truly felt he was the least pushy. With everyone else, it felt like as soon as they gave me their price, they wanted a yes or no answer. With Chris, it felt like he was willing to give me information and let me think about it with no pressure. His office is in a very nice building in Pasadena. It's a shared office space with attentive secretaries and a spacious, very upscale meeting room. The secretaries are willing to make copies and they were friendly. In terms of results, I was very pleased with the outcome. Also, Chris made the deal on the arraignment date! I didn't even know that was possible. So the case was very fast and a great outcome. Chris was so nice as to honor the lowest price estimate he gave before we made a contract. On the contract, we assumed I may have had a more complicated case. Luckily it was a lot more simple than it could have been. Therefore, he gave me a partial refund for the price adjustment after the day he made a deal for me with the court. I think that's so awesome he did that. I felt cheap asking about it but he was so quick to honor the lower price. Overall, it's been an excellent experience with Chris and I highly recommend him.

I can't say anything negative about Chris. I hired another private lawyer from a big law firm who wasn't doing anything to help my case. I ended up firing him and hired Chris. He was willing to jump into my case right away and definitely had my best interest in mind. He was able to change the judges mind by overturning a previous decision and got me into the military diversion program. He also convinced the judge to prevent my guns from being destroyed.

Christopher Miller is a great lawyer! He is very understanding with a cooperative and reliable behavior. He helped my cousin get his case dismissed! If you’re deciding on a lawyer pick Mr Miller! He’ll get you what you want and is very knowledgeable about his stuff!

Go with Christopher Miller He is a professional that is a true 6-star attorney. I was very scared when I initially got charged, he was honest as he talked me threw my options which lowered my stress and showed me that he had my back. He fought for what I wanted and got 4 charges dropped. To keep things short, I am telling you if you choose Chris as your attorney you will be HAPPY WITH THAT CHOICE. So, I say choose to be happy. I just want you all to know.

I highly recommend the firm Escovar & Avila and all of the staff at the office! Five star review! This firm truly cares about helping their clients and going the extra mile! The office staff is all polite and the attorneys know what they are doing when it comes to criminal defense!!

Steve Escovar and his staff from day one put me at ease with their professionalism and compassion. He is truly amazing in the courtroom. He is an exceptional attorney. He was able to do what I thought would be very difficult if not impossible to accomplish. He took such great care in achieving the best possible result for me. I am forever grateful to him and his staff for the exceptional job they did for me. He got two under the influence of a controlled substance convictions vacated. Look at his reviews; no matter if its Avvo Yelp or anywhere else his record is impeccable.

DRUG AGGRAVATE FELONY VACATED I had a felony for posession of sales "Rock Cocaine " since 1995 in Norwalk Superior Court, one of the toughest courts in Southern California. In 2006 and 2015 i hired an Attorney to Vacate my case, but was denied both times I thought my life was over. In 2018, I went on line and found Mr. Steve Escobar criminal attorney at law, and by looking at his ratings i noticed that he had help people like me so i contacted him, after he review my case he told me that the court had violated my rights that we can fight that, if i wanted to but there was a 30% chance to VACATED the case and that was better than nothing and he also liked my case, he made me feel comfortable and believe once again. When the time came for a court day I was impressed by the way he preformed in court, he was professional, dedicated, and serious about my case and that's what separates him from other lawyers i thought, he postpone the case twice because the D.A. did not want to vacate my case but reduce to a misdemeanor which Mr. Escobar did not settle for that, on the last court date Mr. Escovar contacted my immigration Attorney and after he talked to him, we knew that a misdemeanor would still affect my immigration status; he fought to vacate my case, the ⁸court granted my case to VACATED in its entirety, withdrawn my GUILTY PLEA and dismissed all charges, i couldn't believe it after 25 years of having a felony it was VACATED 100% thanks to Mr. Escobar and for the money that i pay Mr. Escobar I felt like I owe him more, I cried and hugged in court told him thank you and he had just change my life. Now im the processing of my immigration papers!!! I don't know how to thank him enough, he is one of the best lawyers in southern California and a real CRIMINAL LAWYER. I hope this motivates people like me to try attorney Escobar if you have any felony drugs related charges or hard criminal cases, he will fight for you, he is professional in court and really dedicated to his clients, he doesn't settle for misdemeanors, he was dedicated to VACATE my criminal case and not to settle for anything less, due my to immigration status. Once again Thank you Mr. Escobar you chance my life for me and my family!!! My prayers always for you!!!!

I highly recommend attorney Escovar, He treated us with respect and professionalism, he is very efficient , my husband’s case was from 25 yrs. ago we were surprised by all the charges the court had on my husband. Attorney Escovar told us right away what proofs/papers we needed to collect; He took action right away and we have excellent results. My husband lives in Mexico right know this is jus to add the excellent representation Attorney Escovar provides. Thank you Attorney Escovar. Oh! Just to let you know, price for his work, very fair. ???????????????? I would definitely recommend him!

In 2007 I pleaded no contest to Penal Code 487 (a) and Penal Code 459. I served 2 years concurrently in state prison. After I got out of prison I completely turned my life around. I went back to school and got Job training. However, my past convictions continued to haunt me. Even though I served my time, paid my debt and changed my life for the better; I continued to have legal issues with immigration. And trouble getting good jobs. I desperately needed a post conviction relief, to solve my immigration problem and for greater job opportunity’s. Before hiring Mr Escovar, I had attempted to get my charges reduced 3 prior times with 3 different attorneys without a shred of success. It was a total waste of money. I never gave up hope and I prayed for a miracle. My prayers were answered when I found Attorney Steve Escovar on yelp. Mr. Escovar and his team did something that no other attorney EVER did before. He really listened to me and RESEARCHED my case. He knows the laws and was able to use new laws to my advantage. He worked hard to get me the post conviction relief that I needed. My hope was to, at best, get my charges reduced, Instead Mr. Escovar got BOTH charges DISMISSED! I will never forget when the Judge said: “You now have a clean record “. I am still in amazement at what Mr. Escovar was able to do. And his pricing is more then reasonable. Thank you Mr Escovar and Ms Mateus for getting me out of what seemed like an impossible situation. -Oscar M

    Steve Escovar and his staff from day one put me at ease with their professionalism and compassion. He is truly amazing in the courtroom. He is an exceptional attorney. He was able to do what I thought would be very difficult if not impossible to accomplish. He took such great care in achieving the best possible result for me. I am forever grateful to him and his staff for the exceptional job they did for me. He got two under the influence of a controlled substance convictions vacated. Look at his reviews; no matter if its Avvo Yelp or anywhere else his record is impeccable.

    DRUG AGGRAVATE FELONY VACATED I had a felony for posession of sales "Rock Cocaine " since 1995 in Norwalk Superior Court, one of the toughest courts in Southern California. In 2006 and 2015 i hired an Attorney to Vacate my case, but was denied both times I thought my life was over. In 2018, I went on line and found Mr. Steve Escobar criminal attorney at law, and by looking at his ratings i noticed that he had help people like me so i contacted him, after he review my case he told me that the court had violated my rights that we can fight that, if i wanted to but there was a 30% chance to VACATED the case and that was better than nothing and he also liked my case, he made me feel comfortable and believe once again. When the time came for a court day I was impressed by the way he preformed in court, he was professional, dedicated, and serious about my case and that's what separates him from other lawyers i thought, he postpone the case twice because the D.A. did not want to vacate my case but reduce to a misdemeanor which Mr. Escobar did not settle for that, on the last court date Mr. Escovar contacted my immigration Attorney and after he talked to him, we knew that a misdemeanor would still affect my immigration status; he fought to vacate my case, the ⁸court granted my case to VACATED in its entirety, withdrawn my GUILTY PLEA and dismissed all charges, i couldn't believe it after 25 years of having a felony it was VACATED 100% thanks to Mr. Escobar and for the money that i pay Mr. Escobar I felt like I owe him more, I cried and hugged in court told him thank you and he had just change my life. Now im the processing of my immigration papers!!! I don't know how to thank him enough, he is one of the best lawyers in southern California and a real CRIMINAL LAWYER. I hope this motivates people like me to try attorney Escobar if you have any felony drugs related charges or hard criminal cases, he will fight for you, he is professional in court and really dedicated to his clients, he doesn't settle for misdemeanors, he was dedicated to VACATE my criminal case and not to settle for anything less, due my to immigration status. Once again Thank you Mr. Escobar you chance my life for me and my family!!! My prayers always for you!!!!

We were unfortunate to come across a legal situation over the holidays that required immediate attention. We contacted Paul to see if he could help, and without hesitation, he decided to represent us in resolving this matter. Paul was not only honest with his assessment, but very intelligent, trustworthy and very professional with how he handled the case. He rearranged his schedule to make time for our matter and kept us in the loop with necessary information at every stage. He was very thorough in gathering information to represent our best interests. At the hearing, Paul was able to resolve the matter and reach a resolution that we were hoping for, and probably would not have achieved without his services. I cannot recommend Paul's services enough!! If you or anybody you care about are in a bind, definitely give him a call. I'm grateful that he was there to help us and I can honestly say that if you are ever in need of an attorney, you will not find a better one than Paul.

The best decision I made after being faced with charges was choosing Paul to represent me. He handled every aspect of the case with a high level of attentiveness and genuine care. I was facing difficult charges due to a poor night of decisions but fortunately had a great lawyer that knew the law and courts very well. I am thankful he was involved in helping me reconcile this situation and couldn’t be happier with the results. In short, if you’re looking for highly knowledgeable, professional, attentive and all around well versed lawyer that knows the law, go with Paul.

On the eve of trial, Paul came to me to discuss the possible outcomes. Ultimately it would my choice to go through the ordeal of trial and possibly face life in prison. The day of trial, prior to picking a jury, Paul got me a deal that was and is, truly amazing! From the Judge to the Prosecutor's, they all knew Paul at Pomona Court. Thanks Paul and Danielle (who answered all my calls & relayed every message to Paul)

Paul is a great attorney. Not only does he have deep expertise, intelligence, and a great listening skills, he also has deep integrity, which in my opinion, is the most important character trait for any professional I hire. For example, my wife and I once went to Paul for a specific issue and he referred us to a colleague who he thought was a better fit for our specific case. Consult/hire Paul Geller without reservation. He will not disappoint you.

I highly recommend Paul Geller. He is extremely efficient and covers every aspect of your case with a fine tooth comb. He cares deeply about his clients, is very strong when dealing with opposing counsel when needed, and also has a very approachable personality that makes it very easy to converse with him. I believe he is exceptional.

Ann consulted with us on our daughter’s case and was very open, honest, and comforting. Our daughter was confronted by the police when she was in a park after hours, and was intimidated into giving consent for her possessions and car to be searched. The excessive search uncovered a tiny amount of prescription medication she should not have had. Ann explained to our daughter what her rights are and how to handle herself in that situation. She consulted with us several times on the case, and explained to us the worst case scenario, the best case, and what was most likely to happen. We discussed potential costs, which seemed reasonable. Eventually she verified for us that the case had been dropped. We are so grateful for all of her help, and truly appreciate her willingness to be available, her kindness, and her honesty.

Amazing, honest, fair attorney. I am so grateful for Ann and would recommend her to anyone in need of her services. Thank you Ann!

Ann was knowledgeable and quick. I was right to trust her with my case. She was sending me good news only 5 weeks after my first call to her. I couldn’t believe it. Give Ann a call and let her take care of your issue!

Attorney Gottesman has helped my wife out in getting her case dismissed. My wife got a traffic ticket which was escalated to a misdemeanor charge later. I am so thankful to Ms. Gottesman and very happy on choosing her to represent my wife. She kept us very well informed with updates and advices during the entire process. Then she was able to get us through this unfortunate situation with a wonderful outcome. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking for a reliable and reputable law firm with great professionalism. Thank you again Ms. Gottesman, and everyone at your office!

You hope you never need a criminal defense attorney, but things happen. It's good to have Ann on your side. Professional and courteous, she went the extra mile for me in my case.

Highly recommend Rich Hutton. He is top notch, knowledgeable, very well respected by his peers and the court system. There is no fluff with Rich. He is compassionate but most importantly honest. Sylvia Ramos

I spent countless hours researching, vetting, and interviewing attorneys following my DUI incident. Unfortunately, too many DUI attorneys prey on the uninformed with fear tactics and unrealistic promises. A close family friend who works as a Public Defender forwarded me several referrals that ultimately ended with "Richard Hutton - he's expensive, but he's the best." After meeting Rich in person, I understood exactly what she meant and retained him for my case. I can confidently say that I made the right decision. Rich's rapport with the DAs and staff was evident at every court appearance. When the situation felt hopeless, he worked relentlessly to come up with a creative resolution. It was a painful experience to go through, but in hindsight I don't think it could have worked out any better. Nothing is guaranteed, but you are doing yourself a huge disservice if you are charged with a DUI in SoCal and don't spend the time to at least consult with Richard Hutton. Best of luck.

I've worked with Hutton and Wilson for over six years. When it comes to matters of Criminal Defense, I trust only Robert Wilson and Rich Hutton. They are at the top of their games. Simply, they are the best around. I highly recomend them.

I was charged with my first dui with gbi and I was terrified after finding out the possible punishment I could be facing. I called a couple of attorneys but I felt more comfortable with Mr. Wilson, he answered all my questions and was completely honest with me from the beginning. He's very knowledgeable in criminal defense and is well respected in the courthouse. I'm satisfied with the final outcome, he was able to settle my case without having to serve any prison or jail time and I'd like to thank you Mr. Wilson for fighting for me and looking out for my best interest. I highly recommend Mr. Wilson and his team.

Honestly, it's hard to find people these days that take the time to really focus on treating their clients like human beings and not just another way to make a profit. I knew after the first phone call this was going to be a great experience. The entire process was so pleasant and satisfying. This being my first time in this type of situation, everyone was so helpful and very knowledgable. I immediately felt comfortable and soon realized these people are doing what they are doing for a reason! My favorite part was that I never felt pressured in any way to do anything I wasn't familiar with. They really take the time to help you understand the process. This small firm is a true gem. It's very much worth a try but rest assured you will not be let down!

Everyone at one point or another makes a mistake they wish they could take back while enduring the repercussions of their act. When the law is concerned, the fate of ones’ life can seem to be decided as nonchalant as a casual business conversation. In my case, I revealed my violation when I was applying for the police department to prove my honesty and show that I was ready to start making a difference in my community. My interview soon became an interrogation, and not long after I was charged with three felonies. When I came to Tom Medrano with my case, he immediately began to draw up a plan and described everything in detail what he would do. He used simple anagrams that explained how to go about dealing with the situation and gave counsel with the sense of optimism I needed. Most importantly, by the impression I gathered, he could empathize with my predicament whereas the justice system only made me feel like an outcast among society. I followed instruction by seeing the therapist and psychologist he recommended personally. At the final hearing my case was dropped to a single charge, with no jail time, and a short period of probation. I felt like I could finally relax after being so stressed from the matter. I was very pleased with all Tom had been able to work out. Not only did he reduce the typical sentence, he was able to arrange for a second set of terms. Halfway through my probation we would return to court, reduce the felony to a misdemeanor, discard the remaining time of probation, and expunge the charge from my criminal record. Just as he had planned, the court agreed to dismiss my case. I want to thank Tom so much for representing me and all his hard work. I feel confident I can move on with my life without the burden of my past hindering my future.

I'm leaving this review on behalf of my grandma who called for a free consultation, and we received outstanding customer service from this office! Also, we really appreciated that they offered Spanish translation for my grandma. The office staff was extremely sweet and helpful, especially Maryel. Although we didn't retain Mr. Medrano, the info we obtained from the consultation was extremely helpful in guiding us in the right direction. They offered great customer service and that shouldn't go unnoticed!

This firm was really resourceful and helped me with 2 different cases. Maryel was able to help me with some questions over the phone and recommended the free consultation, that was helpful and found out a little more information about the case I didn't know. Cynthia was also resourceful by helping me with the other case and leading me to the right direction for a Real Estate attorney. Thank you ladies for the service and making me feel at ease with my situations, also! thank you Mr. Medrano for hearing me out and helping me during a tough time.

Tom Medrano is the MAN . I wanted him to look at my case because it was a time sensitive issue . He was beyond helpful and Super informative I consider myself a professional but definitely inept when it comes to legal issues. Tom took the time to address my concern and make me feel at ease . Cynthia is a great person to speak to as well . Every time i started worrying and had a question she was there to answer it , She has such a calming tone. I want them to realize that for clients thats all that matters . What makes this law office special is that i walked away feeling as if I was speaking with friends that were there to protect me . I will keep recommending their services. If you have any legal concerns please do yourself a favor and reach out to Cynthia or Tom. Tom needs to become a professor.

    Honestly, it's hard to find people these days that take the time to really focus on treating their clients like human beings and not just another way to make a profit. I knew after the first phone call this was going to be a great experience. The entire process was so pleasant and satisfying. This being my first time in this type of situation, everyone was so helpful and very knowledgable. I immediately felt comfortable and soon realized these people are doing what they are doing for a reason! My favorite part was that I never felt pressured in any way to do anything I wasn't familiar with. They really take the time to help you understand the process. This small firm is a true gem. It's very much worth a try but rest assured you will not be let down!

    Everyone at one point or another makes a mistake they wish they could take back while enduring the repercussions of their act. When the law is concerned, the fate of ones’ life can seem to be decided as nonchalant as a casual business conversation. In my case, I revealed my violation when I was applying for the police department to prove my honesty and show that I was ready to start making a difference in my community. My interview soon became an interrogation, and not long after I was charged with three felonies. When I came to Tom Medrano with my case, he immediately began to draw up a plan and described everything in detail what he would do. He used simple anagrams that explained how to go about dealing with the situation and gave counsel with the sense of optimism I needed. Most importantly, by the impression I gathered, he could empathize with my predicament whereas the justice system only made me feel like an outcast among society. I followed instruction by seeing the therapist and psychologist he recommended personally. At the final hearing my case was dropped to a single charge, with no jail time, and a short period of probation. I felt like I could finally relax after being so stressed from the matter. I was very pleased with all Tom had been able to work out. Not only did he reduce the typical sentence, he was able to arrange for a second set of terms. Halfway through my probation we would return to court, reduce the felony to a misdemeanor, discard the remaining time of probation, and expunge the charge from my criminal record. Just as he had planned, the court agreed to dismiss my case. I want to thank Tom so much for representing me and all his hard work. I feel confident I can move on with my life without the burden of my past hindering my future.

    I'm leaving this review on behalf of my grandma who called for a free consultation, and we received outstanding customer service from this office! Also, we really appreciated that they offered Spanish translation for my grandma. The office staff was extremely sweet and helpful, especially Maryel. Although we didn't retain Mr. Medrano, the info we obtained from the consultation was extremely helpful in guiding us in the right direction. They offered great customer service and that shouldn't go unnoticed!

    This firm was really resourceful and helped me with 2 different cases. Maryel was able to help me with some questions over the phone and recommended the free consultation, that was helpful and found out a little more information about the case I didn't know. Cynthia was also resourceful by helping me with the other case and leading me to the right direction for a Real Estate attorney. Thank you ladies for the service and making me feel at ease with my situations, also! thank you Mr. Medrano for hearing me out and helping me during a tough time.

    Tom Medrano is the MAN . I wanted him to look at my case because it was a time sensitive issue . He was beyond helpful and Super informative I consider myself a professional but definitely inept when it comes to legal issues. Tom took the time to address my concern and make me feel at ease . Cynthia is a great person to speak to as well . Every time i started worrying and had a question she was there to answer it , She has such a calming tone. I want them to realize that for clients thats all that matters . What makes this law office special is that i walked away feeling as if I was speaking with friends that were there to protect me . I will keep recommending their services. If you have any legal concerns please do yourself a favor and reach out to Cynthia or Tom. Tom needs to become a professor.

I highly recommend Patricia Corrales to anyone seeking representation on any immigration case. Her thorough knowledge and patient guidance throughout the entire legal process culminated in a successful residency status for my loved one. Thanks to her, my family can sleep better at night. We definitely made the right choice when we went with Ms. Corrales as our Immigration Attorney. No regrets whatsoever!

Ms Patricia Corrales is the best Attoney on immigrations, crime defense, she helps me get my LPR in November 1st 2019, my case during 5 years processing was finally terminated at time. Now, I enjoy my freedom and lawful residency in California or USA, she is the best Attorney fighting for you, there has so many words that how appreciated to her. Thanks again!

Patty did an AMAZING job on my case. I thought it was impossible with all of the baggage I had. She pulled through and I was granted my citizenship. Patty is the attorney you can trust and rely on. I am eternally grateful.

Patty is my husband's and my immigration attorney, and she is truly excellent! She isn't afraid to tell the hard truth about our case, but we also know she is doing everything possible to fight for our case. She is clearly highly knowledgable about her field, especially after having worked for ICE for 17 years. I have every confidence in her and really appreciate the job she is doing for us.

Patty has been an absolute Godsend to my family and me. We first came to her about 2 years ago asking her for help with my parent's immigration case. It was by no means an easy case but Patty exemplifies the characteristics of an advocate. She is honest and direct; from the moment she reviewed our case she told us it would be a hard one but one that she would fight for. She was successful in securing Parole in Place for my parent's; even after USCIS initially denied it. Maria has also been a wonderful advocate for my family. She's worked with us at various stages during this process and has been invaluable. I can't thank this office enough for all that they have done for my parent's. It has been a long process but not once did we ever question the commitment of Patty, Maria, and their staff. They've been there to share our sentiments which always made us feel like more than just clients to them. Thank you for advocating for us during this journey, for your professionalism, kind hearts, and hard work! I, without a doubt, recommend the Law Offices of Patricia M. Corrales.
