James Gandy represented me in a criminal case that started last year. When I contacted Mr. Gandy I have already hired another attorney. Once I spoke to him on the phone and then met him in person I decided to switch attorneys. He didn’t promise me an easy way out of my case, but he promised to work hard and do the best he can to improve my legal position. I was facing a tough prosecutor demanding I served 6 month in county jail. Mr. Gandy helped me reduce the sentence to 90 days and serve it in pay to stay facility which help me keep my job and maintain some freedom throughout this difficult times. In my view he is a great attorney, work hard on my behalf and provided me with constant communication throughout the ongoing case. He is very honest and I felt safe knowing he will do what he can for me as a client. I am very confident recommending him and am sure he is the right attorney for you as well

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

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.

Ese is one of the sharpest criminal defense lawyers you will find here in Los Angeles. He is not only very personable, but super knowledgable in criminal law and civil rights. I was looking for a lawyer that would devote 100% of his energy to my case. He gave me 110% and after a long and explosive trial that we just wrapped up, the court read back the NOT GUILTY verdicts I was hoping for! The level of stress one goes through trying to find the right lawyer can be overwhelming. I knew I found the right lawyer after my first meeting with him. I highly recommend the Omofoma Law Firm.

Richard handled my boyfriend's underage DUI case beautifully. He handled both the DMV and Court side. He got my boyfriend a restricted license instead of a suspended license and reduced the charge to a wet reckless instead of a DUI. His fee was very reasonable too!

Wilkerson & Mulligan are a skilled and dedicated criminal defense attorney team. If you or someone you love is in trouble, call for a free initial consultation. Being charged with a crime, whether you are guilty or innocent, is probably the worst thing that has happened to you in your life. All criminal charges carry the potential for loss of freedom, deportation, loss of professional licenses, and heavy fines. This is aside from the public humiliation you may find after seeing your name in the newspaper or sitting as a defendant at a jury trial. You need a lawyer that can handle your case with skill and creativity, as well as an individual that will seek to preserve your humanity and treat you with respect and dignity, without consideration of the charges. Wilkerson & Mulligan have handled cases from homicide to child molestation to the smallest of municipal code infractions, while treating all of their clients with dignity and respect. Forest Wilkerson often says that the prosecution is ready to judge people by the worst day or the worst event in their life, but people are so much more than that one day of their life, or one moment. Recognizing this very different perspective of humanity, Forest fights to make the prosecution understand that we should not be judged by that one moment, but by all of the great moments that we have as individuals. She will fight to show why each person deserves a second chance, or a second look, for all your virtue. Prosecutors have said that when Forest is assigned to a case, it makes a difference, because she makes them work, and work hard. Let her work for you. Forest is well-known and widely respected in the local legal community. Her skills as a lawyer have resulted in recognition as one of the top criminal defense attorneys in the Coachella Valley by Palm Springs Life Magazine. Joshua Mulligan joined with Forest Wilkerson on August 22, and we changed our name to Wilkerson & Mulligan. Josh brings almost 9 years of experience in criminal law to the practice. Josh is a graduate of Cornell Law School, one of the top 10 law schools in the nation. Josh has been published in the Cornell Law Journal of Public Law and Policy and was also a general editor on the Journal. Josh has handled thousands of cases, ranging from DUI to homicide, and has conducted over 60 jury trials. Over the years, Josh has achieved incredible results for his clients, including dozens of not guilty jury verdicts. We are excited to offer a service that nobody else in the Coachella Valley can offer, a husband/wife team jointly working all cases. We are incredibly pleased to offer this unique service to our clients, who will certainly benefit from our combined experience.

About

Attorney Cantrell was recently in the news. The client was facing life in prison, but Attorney Cantrell and the other defense attorneys were able to get the case dismissed. The newspaper article can be found here: Recent Murder Trial Succes. Attorney Cantrell just completed a murder trial in Riverside, with case number RIF 154612. The client was facing 50 years to life in prison. The jury found the client not guilty on the murder charges. Further details may be found on the Court Website. It may not take a rocket scientist to be a lawyer, but Mark Cantrell has been both. Before he started his career as a criminal defense trial lawyer in Riverside in 1994, he was a scientist working on classified military missile programs at the former Norton Air Force Base. He is well-known in the criminal defense community in Riverside as being one of the best trial attorneys for high-profile cases. Visitors to his office are invited to read copies of newspaper articles about him. He is admitted to practice in all state and federal courts in California. Mr. Cantrell handles a wide range of cases, but family law, DUI defense and criminal defense are his favorite areas of practice, because the client can often be helped by a qualified attorney.
