I hired Parwana Anwar for my case through the recommendation of a friend. He suggested her because she used to be a DA and prosecute criminal cases before she switched over to criminal defense. And my friend was right. She's phenomenal. From her past experience as a DA, she knew exactly how the prosecutors were going to approach the case, and came up with a phenomenal defense. Long story short, I got the best possible outcome for my case. Beyond even what I thought was possible. She is phenomenally smart. I wouldn't hire anyone else.

Mary at True Vine has been a blessing for me and my family members. We had the pleasure of working with Mary on two occasions. Out of respect for my family member I will not give details of the type of cases she handled for us. What I will say is that she is very knowledgeable and is always willing to go the extra mile much more that a family member would.She is honest! Which, I can not say for most attorneys I have dealt with. We were more than pleased with our experience, as she delivered more than expected. Thank you True Vine Justice.

I hired Shaffer to help me with a legal matter and I have to say he over delivered! Not only did his office keep me in the loop on everything, but my case turned out great for me. What a relief! If you wan't a good attorney that you can tell really cares about you, you won't be disappointed with Shaffer.

About

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

My sole area of practice is criminal law, including DUI in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. I have represented numerous clients that were accused with DUI or driving under the influence. If you were arrested for VC23152(b) or VC23153(b), your driver's license will be suspended 30 days from your apprehension if you do not call the Department of Motor Vehicle within 10 days to request a hearing with a DMV hearing officer. DUI law is very complex whether it is your first or third offense. You are not just dealing with the judicial system but the Department of Motor Vehicle as well. You need an attorney experienced in driving under the influence (vehicle code) defense as well as the Department of Motor Vehicle hearings. My efforts, knowledge and experience have resulted in reduced charges and outright dismissals in both the court and DMV. Keep in mind that every case is unique, so results will vary. My guarantee to you is that we will explore every possibility, and I will make sure you have the representation that you are entitled to. It is a must to have an attorney that is willing to go all the way, including trial if necessary. There is no charge for your initial consultation!

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. Mark Cantrell is a member of the San Bernardino County Bar Association (SBCBA), Inland Trial Lawyers Association, California Public Defenders Association (CPDA) and the Association of Federal Defense Attorneys (AFDA).

About

Our firm works a little differently than most other law firms do. In many other firms, one attorney is responsible for certain portions of a case – i.e., the DMV hearing, Motions, Pre-Trial Hearings, Discovery issues, Trial, Client Contact, etc. With our firm, you get one attorney for all aspects of the case and client contact. Your assigned attorney is your point of contact. Moreover, if you prefer one attorney over another, simply let us know. We can’t guarantee a specific result. That would be professionally unethical, and against State Bar rules. However, we can promise to work hard for you, leaving no stone un-turned. We prepare every single case we handle as if it were going to trial, even if you tell us you don’t want to go to trial. We do this for one simple reason – the District Attorney doesn’t know trial is not an option.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
