Mr. Sorensen was great to work with and he handled my case very well. He had very good communication and kept me up to date not only through meeting in person and on the phone but through texts and emails also. I was worried that I was going to lose my case, but after working with him, I had hope that I might not lose and I didn't. Thank you Mr. Sorensen! I highly recommend him for anyone in need of a great defense attorney!

I am a drug and alcohol counselor and treat literally hundreds of people dealing with DUI's every year. Rick is by far the best DUI attorney I have dealt with in California regarding DUI issues. Here is why: -He wins more DMV cases than any lawyer I have ever heard of. Remember you have TWO hearings whenever you get arrested and charged with a DUI. A court hearing and a DMV hearing. The DMV comes first usually and they give you TEN DAYS to even request a hearing or they will AUTOMATICALLY suspend your license and you are screwed. -He answers emails and other communication immediately...often out of business hours. He is the most responsive lawyer I have ever dealt with. -He is a SHARK in the courtroom (where he needs to be) but a VERY KIND HUMAN being with his clients. Rick is one of those rare attorneys who actually understands and cares that his clients are going through a lot of terror and turmoil. He is very compassionate and understanding and often acts as a sort of therapist (or "nice father figure" at least) as well as a Laywer when you are up a creek with a DUI. -He KNOWS the law. Rick has WORKED EXTENSIVELY on both sides of the DUI SYSTEM and understands the prosecutors' role as well as the defending attorneys' role. This is invaluable when it comes to choosing a good DUI attorney. -HE IS HONEST. He will tell you if your case is even slightly winnable or not. He will refer you if you need more of a specialist (a jury trial specialist for example) and is less interested in money than he is in really helping you out. -He NEVER gives up. -I have had more clients happy with him than any other attorney. I refer all of my clients to him and they all are happy. We need more attourneys like him in California. A DUI is a horrible terrible thing to get and CA does not screw around. They will ruin your career, life, driving privikages and bank account. DO NOT believe the people that say it's a waste of money to hire a DUI Laywer. If you were unfairly handled by law endorsement or your case has holes in that help you, Rick will find them and use them to help you in your favor. I can't say enough good about him.
My husband and I hired Mr Saman as our immigration attorney to assist us during our immigration journey in the United States, as I am from Italy, and my husband is an American citizen. Not only was Saman available at all times, and answered all the numerous questions we had, he also helped us consider a multitude of options for my husband and I to be together in order to avoid long-distance relationships. What made Saman impeccable at his work was the fact that he could really relate to each and all concerns we had; he was extremely familiar with visa procedures and green card applications, and his positive attitude helped us become acquainted with immigration law, which was a world unknown to us. During my green card application process, he explained every step of the way in such simple words that it was hard not to do things properly. Saman was extremely reliable, precise, and very pleasant to deal with. My green card application was such an easy process, especially considering what I had heard about it until then. I (along with my husband) am so grateful that Saman has been part of our journey, and even now that I have been a permanent resident for a year, we are still in contact, and he is always so prompt to offer help, and provide answers. We have no hesitation in recommending his legal services. He is excellent, passionate about what he does, and most importantly he wears his heart on his sleeves, which undoubtedly is a quality that we truly appreciate. Thanks so very much Saman.
Vik Monder is the best criminal defense attorney in San Diego. He believed in my case when nobody did. He fought all the way to the end and was able to achieve positive results that I did not think any attorney was capable of. He is chill to talk to as well. Really patient and does not judge. Call him if you just want to talk about your case especially if its about to get real bad.
I was out with friends about 6 months ago and had a bit too much to drink and ended up in a car accident. I have never been in trouble with the law before and this was a very scary thing for me, especially since I work on a governmental job and having that on my record could be detrimental to my career. Mr. Pilato understood my predicament and him and the investigator he work with was able to throughly investigate the situation and also brought several experts witnesses to testify during the trial. Long story short he was able to get me an acquittal. Also, he is available at all times and made sure I understood everything that was going on throughout the whole process. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends if they ever need a criminal lawyer. Joseph Ramirez
I hired Anna to represent me for a felony and misdemeanor arrest after I had consulted with two other attorneys. Anna appeared to be very competent and knowledgeable with how the District Attorney's (DA) office and the City Attorney's (CA) office would pursue the case based off of her past experience working as the deputy district attorney. Her experience as a former prosecutor put a great deal of confidence in me that she would be the most competent attorney that I could hire for my particular case. Since I had a prior felony conviction, I could not run the risk of a second felony conviction based off of false accusations. Although our judicial system is supposed to operate under the premise "innocent until proven guilty," I know better than to take a passive approach to prove out my innocence. My approach was to hire what I considered to be the most aggressive, experienced, and competent attorney. Anna's initial meeting with me was on the Labor Day Holiday which exhibited to me her dedication to providing me with the best legal counsel available for my case. My case endured a long wait since my arrest occurred at the end of August but no charges were filed for over four months. The only thing that helped me endure the wait was weekly communication with Anna on the status of my case as she would always respond back to my emails or calls within the same day. She kept in constant contact with the City Attorney's (CA) office and the District Attorney's (DA) office on the status of the police report. Her aggressive approach and communication with the two offices (DA & CA) finally led to the CA making a decision that no charges would be filed! I received this news from Anna on New Years eve day so I could not have experienced a happier new year. Once again, I believe that Anna's past experience as a prosecutor for the city played a role in the most favorable outcome a client can receive after being arrested for felony and misdemeanor charges. Since I initially felt that the charges were bogus and that my innocence would eventually clear me from the charges, I am glad that my better judgment kicked in and I hired an aggressive, experienced, and competent attorney in Anna Yum.
Brad Jensen worked as one of four full time members of the Los Angeles District Attorneys Office who helped actually convict the Menendez Brothers for the shotgun killings of their parents. He is very good with judges, prosecutors, court staff, witnesses and anyone in a position to help him help you get the best possible plea bargain or result. He has helped me and many others who I have referred to him regardless of the criminal charge he is an attorney you want by your side.
I hired Mark to represent my son who had an underage DUI misdemeanor. Mark negotiated a resolution that I was very happy with. The last 5 months had been a very emotional and trying time, but Mark was excellent about answering any questions I had promptly and communicated with me often to keep me updated on the status of the case. What impressed me the most about Mark is that he handled everything on his own and was not delegated to any junior attorneys in his practice. I always felt confident that Mark was handling our case 100%.
I had put myself in quite a difficult situation when I was arrested for a DUI in 2014. I not only put my career and reputation on the line, but also felt quite disappointed in myself, after being a fairly responsible person for most of my life. Enter Erik Bruner. He really dedicated a lot of time to my case and put me at ease, as he represented me in court. Erik is very responsive to emails, answered all of questions with a great knowledge of the law, and ultimately was able to reduce my penalties -- as I enter the next chapter of my life in hopes of being much more responsible than before. I would highly recommend using Mr. Bruner's services as a Criminal Defense attorney. He seems to genuinely care about his clients, and frankly, he is intelligent and easy to work with. Thank you!
Silvia gave me the best defense I could had ever asked for. Her thoroughness, knowledge, and professionalism contributed greatly in reducing what my initial consequences her. She is an amazing attorney and I highly recommend. She helped me with my DUI, but her knowledge is expansive and not limited to DUI’s, but all traffic matters as well as general criminal defense.
