Jina Kim did a great job defending my son. I have never seen a lawyer that was so persistent until we got a deal that was favorable. I highly recommend her.

Chris Glew is by far the best Criminal Defense Attorney in Orange County (actually understatement, California). I have used his services 2 times in the last few years and I always ended up happy with my results. Chris doesn’t tell you why you want to hear, instead he handles what needs to be done. He is a bulldog that anyone would want on their side when dealing with legal issues. He is a busy man for a reason. Much thanks and respect to Chris Glew and his Law Firm.

Many thanks!!! 2 of the most amazing attorney's. My husband was looking at serious time in prison thanks to their hard work and dedication to his case he ended up with probation.We highly recommend this firm.

These two do incredible work. Couldn't ask for better attorneys.

THANK YOU JINA AND CHRIS !!! Had a warrant and a pending criminal case not once did I show up to court and they got me a dismissal again thank you very much for getting my cased dismissed - najera

Mr Bruzzo lived up to his reviews!!! I am so so happy that I went with him. He made me very comfortable, and after speaking with him on the phone and then meeting in person, I knew he was the guy who could help me. Mr Bruzzo is very trustworthy, and truly cares about his clients. He truly deserves his success and he won my factual innocence case. I am beyond happy and thankful for his help, professionalism and dedication. I would HIGHLY recommend him! THANK YOU!

I've been a client of Mr. Bruzzo for years and I've referred him to friends and family as well. Always with excellent results. He is unlike most attorney's in that he's available to you pretty much all the time. He tells you the truth and doesn't beat around the bush. He has integrity which is hard to find in the law profession if you ask me. I've had several bad experiences with other attorney's that simply take your money and do absolutely nothing. NOT this attorney.!!!! He is a former marine captain and you can tell from the moment you meet him. He will fight for you from the moment he takes your case. I highly recommend him.

I have to leave this review . Because I am more than happy. I am so pleased. Everyone that I've come in contact within the office of William Bruzzo were all very friendly and helpful. I was actually amazed at the outcome I received. He told upfront what to expect, and sure enough he came through. I would highly recommend this William Bruzzo for any legal needs. Somehow he has a way of making you feel you are his only client.

I have worked with Will Bruzzo professionally since he was a Major in the Marine core. He is the only attorney we work with for personal injury related matters. He has helped several of our employees and even their children in cases. He is steadfast and honorable as I would expect a former Marine Officer to be. He is unusually easy to talk to which is not always my experience with attorneys. I cannot recommend him more highly.

After speaking with several attorney's I decided to hire Will Bruzzo to fight my DUI case, because of his honestly and great communication. He's a miracle worker, as well as an amazing lawyer. He successfully had the DUI thrown out . Not only was the outcome better than expected, he was quick to return all my phone calls and emails. He genuinely cares about and goes to bat for his clients. Actually, he goes above and beyond for his clients. It was clear that he cared about my family and fought hard in court for a successful outcome. Which he achieved! I wish I could give him a 10 star rating! Thanks, Bruzzo for going the extra mile and for genuinely being an amazing person. We truly can't thank you enough.

I couldn't be happier with Katie! She is an excellent attorney who understands that this process is not only difficult for the child but she is also very attentive to the parents. I had so many questions, This was our first time being involved with the judicial system and having Katie on our side helped me feel more confident about having a fair outcome in the case! I hope you never need to hire an attorney for your child, but if you do...Katie Walsh is the best!!

I highly recommend Atty. Katie Walsh to anyone who needs a juvenile lawyer. She is the ultimate professional. She kept us informed throughout the process and answered questions we had. Best decision ever hiring her to represent our son. Thank you atty.

Katie Walsh is the choice! She is amazing and I would refer her without hesitation to friends and family. As our lawyer, Katie created with ease such an elegant solution for my son who was charged with Felony Conspiracy that as a result nothing will be on his record and he didn't need to plead guilty. After some community service work and only 6 months of light probation period his case will be dismissed.

Katie Walsh is an excellent attorney and advocate. She is proactive, responsive, and reassuring! She answered all of my questions, and explained everything clearly and thoroughly. I knew I was in great hands. I would not hesitate to recommend Katie or to use her again.

I cannot recommend Katie highly enough! She always goes the extra mile for her clients and works wonderfully with parents and children alike. You can feel confident and at ease going with Katie Walsh.

I recently had the misfortune of having to hire a lawyer for my son. He was accused of a serious crime and was facing life. I knew that I had to hire an attorney that was really going to go to bat for my son. That's exactly what I got when I hired Wais Azami. He was very attentive to my concerns and had the knowledge to address them. He was empathetic to my situation as a distraught mother. I told him my financial situation and he was willing to help me with his fee with a split payment plan which made it easier to hire him. He kept me very informed about any new revelations or changes in the case. He even came to my house to drop off papers to me at one point. I never had any trouble getting him on the phone. If he was unable to answer when I called he would text me to let me know when he would get back to me and then he always got back to me at that time. He spent countless hours on the phone with me discussing my sons case. I had a complete sense that he truly cared about my son as a person and that we weren't just clients to him. He even took the time to go to jail and check on my son once. He also called after the case was settled that night to make sure my son was released from jail and again the following week to make sure he had checked in with probation. I am extremely impressed with his dedication. Wais felt that it would be beneficial to have a co-counsel so he brought on Christian Kim. Although I didn't have much direct contact with Christian other than after court hearings, he was respectful and knowledgeable when I had questions. They were both in court at every hearing and I could tell by watching them negotiate that they were not giving up without a fight. Originally we were hoping for 2-3 years maximum but together they negotiated a deal that I didn't think possible and my son was released with time served (almost 8 months) and 5 years probation and he is eligible to reduce his charges after he's off probation. I am forever grateful for both of them! You definitely can't go wrong with either of them if you need a criminal defense attorney.

Great personality, very reliable, on time responses and arrival to the appointment. If you need a lawyer who cares for the client and ready to provide best service then pick Mr. Azami

Without a doubt Wais is the best defense attorney out there. He was very professional, gets his job done fast, and with the highest quality possible! His intelligence and ability to walk me through my case in an understanding manor is what really stood out to me. One thing that sets him apart from the rest is that he constantly kept me in the loop and was very easy to contact. And last but not least the outcome of my case was incredible, I can't thank him enough!

Two days before court I was scared and worried I was freaking out because It was last minute. I went online and started searching up twenty four hour lawyers not only was It almost 11 o’ clock at night, but It was also a holiday and he was the only one that answered out of all the calls I made. Gave me probably the best advice I’ve ever been given from a lawyer with no cost. I went to court with the only the advice he had given me and everything he told me really helped me out with my case. Awesome awesome !

Just got off the phone with Azami. This man is absolute life saver. He was so helpful on the phone. He answered every question I had free of charge and also helped me to have a better understanding of what the situation is.honest to God humanitarian. Cant thank you enough!!!

Moises is the guy you want in your corner. Moises fights for you, he's honest, he gives clear action steps to take, and makes himself available to you. Moises navigated me through criminal charges, as well as got my records expunged. Moises got my initial charges reduced, plus enabled me to stay out of jail, which under the circumstances was a monumental win! Moises was also able to get my records expunged, which helped me gain employment again!!!

Best lawyer keeps you out of jail and someone you can trust! Highly recommended!!

I recommend Moises, he's such a great lawyer. I had two cases, one for paraphernalia and the other one for probation violation. I have never been in a situation like this. But, felt very confident he was going to help me out. He's very professional and always kept me updated on my case. He got one of my charges dismissed and i got community service for my other case. I'm glad he kept me out of jail. I'm grateful of finding a very good lawyer. Highly recommend him.

I have had the pleasure of working with Moises Aguilar and staff for well over a year. Sadly my son was involved in a criminal case matter. As you can imagine as a single parent it was very scary and emotional. I had never been involved in something like this before. I came across Moises and called his office. He was professional from day 1 educating me on steps to take asking many questions along the way and out for our best interest. Moises was able to explain every step in the process always acting and speaking with integrity. Even setting expectations on good and bad news however I always walked away from court trusting Moises. My last year had been a total nightmare no parent would want to go though. I found not only one of the best attorneys in OC to represent my son but a positive outcome on something that could have resulted in a much worse manner. I know he did his best always available, I can highly recommend Moises Aguilar. It is hard to find good people with a good heart in this world and I know Mr. Aguilar has heart and is top notch. Thank you Moises and staff I will forever be grateful for all of your assistance and professional guidance.

Moises is an outstanding defense attorney and should be strongly considered to represent you or your loved ones! Mr. Aguilar recently represented a family member (in Jan 2014) who is extremely happy with the case outcome. Moises is an amazing communicator who will go the extra mile for you. He is always there for you and is quick to reply to emails, phone calls or txt messages.

Lance Rupp and team were extremely helpful and diligent with my case! They were the most positive thing that came out of my situation! Definitely recommend them.

Let me tell you about Mark Schafer! LET ME TELL YOU!!! So just to start things off, I have really bad anxiety, I have really bad depression, so when I received a letter in the mail that I had gotten a warrant, I panicked like I had never panicked in my anxiety ridden life. Right I away I started crying, I was afraid, I had no idea what it meant, what I had to do, I was completely and utterly lost. I called my best friend and she recommended me to visit Mark. I called him and mind you it was an early morning on Monday, he immediately calmed me down, and invited me to his office for a consultation. As soon as I met him, he took a look into my case, read the file, ran through every step that he could take to have the warrant taken care of and he answered all my questions concerning the matter of my case. He made me feel relaxed, and he made me feel very reassured. I had my doubts at first, but just how things are going with COVID, I needed this case to go away, so I took a chance and called Mark and immediately he sent out an email, he made calls and less than a week later, my warrant was gone. He took care of all these things sooo quickly and he ALWAYS kept me informed about everything that was going on. I loved the fact that he just always kept me at peace because I knew he was fighting, he was fighting for me...honestly, having Mark fight for me was the best decision I could have made. The peace of mind that I had knowing he was doing everything he could to help me out helped me tremendously with my anxiety. Mark delivered, he got my case dismissed and it was just....Mark is amazing, if you’re looking for someone who fights and goes above and beyond, he’s your man...def give him a call. Thank you Mark, thank you so much for all you did. I am eternally grateful.

Best team to handle any situation in their fields of expertise. I will greatly recommend their service to anyone looking for a reliable and top performer attorney. They are extremely knowledgeable about many areas of the law. Greatest customer service experience ever. They will make you feel like part of their family. Down to earth people, very friendly and also very fun to work with.

I’m so lucky to have had these very smart attorneys assist me. It’s obvious they love their job. They do a lot of research, and have retained so much information from experience. They can and WILL help you win!

I had an excellent experience with both attorney Shafer and Lance. Very kind and understanding people willing to help in any situation. I strongly recommend coming to them if you're struggling to find a trustworthy lawyer !

I called him and mind you it was an early morning on Monday, he immediately calmed me down, and invited me to his office for a consultation. As soon as I met him, he took a look into my case, read the file, ran through every step that he could take to have the warrant taken care of and he answered all my questions concerning the matter of my case. He made me feel relaxed, and he made me feel very reassured. I had my doubts at first, but just how things are going with COVID, I needed this case to go away, so I took a chance and called Mark and immediately he sent out an email, he made calls and less than a week later, my warrant was gone. He took care of all these things sooo quickly and he ALWAYS kept me informed about everything that was going on. I loved the fact that he just always kept me at peace because I knew he was fighting, he was fighting for me...honestly, having Mark fight for me was the best decision I could have made. The peace of mind that I had knowing he was doing everything he could to help me out helped me tremendously with my anxiety. Mark delivered, he got my case dismissed and it was just....Mark is amazing, if you’re looking for someone who fights and goes above and beyond, he’s your man...def give him a call. Thank you Mark, thank you so much for all you did. I am eternally grateful.

Dan was beyond dedicated, caring and knowledgeable. He represented me in 2 cases and did everything possible to get me a conviction that would not disrupt my personal and professional life. He got me a plea, simultaneously for both cases, that I absolutely agreed with. Beyond that, Dan listened, understood and sympathized with me when I shared my private struggles with him. My previous attorney took on my case, but we did not develop a rapport. So when I needed legal assistance once more I assumed my contact with Dan would be similar, just business. I was completely taken back when he showed concern and empathy, and for that I will always highly esteem and recommend Dan Chambers. He is the greatest attorney in the OC!! I cannot thank you enough Dan. Thank you and your team for everything! God bless you.

There will never be enough words for the respect and appreciation I Have for Dan Chambers !!! I was facing a felony charge. If convicted I would have lost my job and I dont want to think about what else. He is a incredible attorney ! He got me a not guilty verdict. I would recommend him to everyone. It was a very stressful process for me.his knowledge, compassion and respect helped lessen the stress. I lost an attorney and gained a friend for life !!!!!!! Thank you Dan !

If you are in need of a dedicated, experienced, legal expert, and advocate, look no further. Dan is the attorney you want to hire to represent you or your family. He was kind, patient, & honest from the start regarding the outcome of my husband's case. What I appreciate most about Dan, is not only his sense of humor, but also his integrity. Dan treats clients and their family members like a friend and truly cared about getting my husband's case resolved in the best possible manner. Unlike most attorneys, he does NOT gamble when his client's future is on the line. Thank you Dan, & to your lovely team as well, for all of your time and services. God Bless!

Dan is an excellent lawyer. He is professional, very skilled, and will work his hardest to defend you. He managed to work with the DA in my case and I was offered a much lesser charge. I would recommend Dan to anyone who needs a lawyer!

Dan Chambers and his wife Zee are absolutely amazing and are very nice people too. He worked really hard to finding the best solutions to my case and I strongly recommend him. Dan gets the job done! I appreciate everything you've done for me. Thank you.

The Best! Class Act! Highly recommened! Known Alex for 30 yrs! Outstanding!

High price but you definitely get what you pay for. Dad was facing drug charges in a federal case and was looking upward of 25 years. He was able to win a motion that got all the evidence dismissed which basically got the case dismissed. Now my dad is a free walking man. Highly recommend alex and his team

While I thought at first Alex might be expensive, I called other attorneys for a quote and they seemed to only think in terms of minimizing my punishment or potential jail time, Alex took preemptive action and gave me instructions in order to be able to show the court and judge my true character and change the outcome of the trial before it even began. He makes what he does look easy, but make no mistake, Alex is a master of his trade. Well worth every penny. You can find cheaper but might pay for it in jail time.

I have hired Mr. Mendoza in many occasions and have had excellent results every single time. He is a very dedicated attorney that works very diligently on his cases and demonstrates a professional demeanor at all times. He has shown me that even in the toughest of situations he makes me feel at ease at all times bringing a sense of comfort that I am in the right hands. I will be forever grateful that I found him.

I hired Mr. Mendoza in 99 on a case where i was being offered 25yrs. to life. Also it being a very complicated case for the defense. Two victims taking the stand on an attemted murder and he got me out in just a couple of years. I count that as a victory all the way. Thanks Mr. Mendoza

Mr Bruzzo lived up to his reviews!!! I am so so happy that I went with him. He made me very comfortable, and after speaking with him on the phone and then meeting in person, I knew he was the guy who could help me. Mr Bruzzo is very trustworthy, and truly cares about his clients. He truly deserves his success and he won my factual innocence case. I am beyond happy and thankful for his help, professionalism and dedication. I would HIGHLY recommend him! THANK YOU!

I've been a client of Mr. Bruzzo for years and I've referred him to friends and family as well. Always with excellent results. He is unlike most attorney's in that he's available to you pretty much all the time. He tells you the truth and doesn't beat around the bush. He has integrity which is hard to find in the law profession if you ask me. I've had several bad experiences with other attorney's that simply take your money and do absolutely nothing. NOT this attorney.!!!! He is a former marine captain and you can tell from the moment you meet him. He will fight for you from the moment he takes your case. I highly recommend him.

I have to leave this review . Because I am more than happy. I am so pleased. Everyone that I've come in contact within the office of William Bruzzo were all very friendly and helpful. I was actually amazed at the outcome I received. He told upfront what to expect, and sure enough he came through. I would highly recommend this William Bruzzo for any legal needs. Somehow he has a way of making you feel you are his only client.

I have worked with Will Bruzzo professionally since he was a Major in the Marine core. He is the only attorney we work with for personal injury related matters. He has helped several of our employees and even their children in cases. He is steadfast and honorable as I would expect a former Marine Officer to be. He is unusually easy to talk to which is not always my experience with attorneys. I cannot recommend him more highly.

After speaking with several attorney's I decided to hire Will Bruzzo to fight my DUI case, because of his honestly and great communication. He's a miracle worker, as well as an amazing lawyer. He successfully had the DUI thrown out . Not only was the outcome better than expected, he was quick to return all my phone calls and emails. He genuinely cares about and goes to bat for his clients. Actually, he goes above and beyond for his clients. It was clear that he cared about my family and fought hard in court for a successful outcome. Which he achieved! I wish I could give him a 10 star rating! Thanks, Bruzzo for going the extra mile and for genuinely being an amazing person. We truly can't thank you enough.

Mr Balderama was a great help in my case. He was very informative on the process. He always returned my calls and emails to answer any questions. P.Reed

PLEASE DO NOT HIRE THIS FIRM, UNLESS YOU WANT TO LOSE YOUR CASE AND MONEY!!! This lawyers are liars, they'll tell you that they would do whatever it takes to help you and your family with your case but they end up not doing anything. This FIRM rip me off and they would do the same to you; they only care about getting your money and not about helping you keep your children.This is the worst firm you can go to for a DCFS Case or Dependency Case. My children went to foster home because the attorney Jonathan Lynn was too INCOMPETENT to do anything for my FAMILY CASE; Mr. Lynn is the worst Lawyer at this firm. He does not have the proper skills or knowledge to be be able to represent anyone in court. Mr. lynn failed to do anything to help my case and he failed to communicate with me. Mr. Lynn, Jonathan failed to follow the CALIFORNIA RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT. Rule 1.1 Competence Rule 1.3 Diligence Rule 1.4 Communication with Clients This firm is a joke; for example, one time I called asking for the FIRMS FOUNDER MR.PAUL J. WALLIN, and Mr. Lynn impersonated Mr. Wallin over the phone. I called to make a complaint about Mr. Lynn and he end up finding out because at the end up the call he said if we didn't like his services to find another Attorney. After, we were so confused because we believed that we were talking to Mr. Wallin, Paul but it wasn't him, it was Mr. Lynn, Jonathan. I have tried to get in contact with Mr. Wallin Paul to make an appointment to talk to him about my refund and about what Mr. Lynn not helping me with my case. Mr. Wallin,Paul has refused to get in contact with me or email me back for an appointments. They plan to keep my money for charges that are not correct and for things that they claimed they did after I had asked for a Refund. I am disgusted by this Firm and how they treat people like piggy banks' instead of truly helping people with there problems.

Great people. Care about their clients

Matt Wallin was was a beacon of hope to my family when our options seemed limited. His calm and empathetic demeanor offered me emotional support. My children and I are eternally grateful for his service and recommend him without reservation.

People seldom think about having a course of action when charged with a crime. Being put in a situation which could have lifelong repercussions is always an uncomfortable one. The law offices of Wallin & Klarich however have time and time again helped me and my family maintain peace of mind when facing legal trouble. With an incredibly amiable staff, they work with you as if yours was their only case. Their work ethic is unmatched in this industry. Trust me, after consulting with other firms, this is the only one that is ALWAYS up for the challenge.
