I met Patricia 12 years ago she was my criminal defense attorney, Patricia was there for me during a very difficult time in my life, I was in a lot of trouble and she was able to work with the district attorney in Placer County, I started out with a felony charge that was dropped down to a misdemeanor and then eventually Patricia was able to get the charges expunged. Patricia was always on time and was always present when I needed her to be with me in court. I was always able to reach her by phone no matter what time I called her. I have stayed in contact with Patricia throughout the years and she has been a positive roll model, I have had a really great experience with her as my attorney and I have called her periodically for help with legal issues unrelated to my criminal case, I feel if it wasn't for Patricia I would not have been able to continue my education and become a Registered Nurse with a Bachelors degree .. I have the most respect and trust for Patricia as a lawyer and as a person . I would recommend Patricia to anyone seeking legal representation she is a very capable and competent lawyer.

Great Experience, Excellent Representation I received three right turn red light camera violations within 2 months in Elk Grove. Mr. Boylan was able to combine all 3 under one court hearing without me attending. He was able to get 1 dismissed, 1 guilty on a "no contest" with Traffic School and 1 guilty on a "no contest" plea. Instead of 3 points on my driving record I received 1 point and did not have to pay one of the fines. The fee was reasonable, I did not have to attend any court hearing and the result was more than I expected. Please note I was guilty on all 3 citations with clear photos and video of me not making full stops. He was not like other Attorney’s who didn’t even bother to return my calls. He took the time to review all 3 citations before he even discussed his fee. Do not listen to those who say nothing can be done about red light tickets, or the numerous on-line articles, and do not pay for any third party service that sends you "how to do it packages". Hire someone reputable, reasonable and honest, I highly recommend Attorney Nelson R. Boylan. Neal Alie Real Estate Consultant

Needed help with my criminal case. I was fearful and intimidated. Mr. Kuyawa walked me through the entire process and procedure. He made me feel better about my situation and kept me out of jail! God bless him.

A family friend who is a bail bondsman referred Justin to me on my DV charge. I was looking at some jail time and probation. It wasn’t looking good for me because of the police reports and pictures taken by the police from the incident. Justin was very honest and upfront when I first called him for my consultation. This was my first time hiring an attorney and my experience with him was excellent! He was very professional, responsive, patient, knowledgable, and confident. I was also impressed on how Justin worked in the courtroom. He knew how to conduct himself and took charge during my court hearings. My amazing outcome was my felony charge was dropped to misdemeanor disturbing the peace and 16 weeks (once a week) of anger management classes. I’m truly grateful for Justin and the high level of service that he had provided for me as my attorney. He was truly a GODSEND!

I would recommend Mr. Bonilla for criminal cases. I hired this law office after being arrested fro drug possession. Being a professional, I was embarrassed. Mr. Bonilla made me feel comfortable and treated me with respect. He knows the law very well. He helped me tremendously, and I was able to maintain my lifestyle during this ordeal.

Christopher Parkhurst was my attorney during the most terrifying and stressful experience of my life. When my case began, my family, loved ones and I were swept into the confusing maelstrom that is the California legal system. Facing three felonies, my academic and professional future was completely on the line. One of the best decisions my family and I have ever made together, was to hire Christopher Parkhurst. Not only did he move my case to a quick and outstanding misdemeanor resolution, but he also supplied the resources and advice I needed to redirect my life. From the first conversation I had with Christopher I knew immediately that he was an expert in his field and specialty. I also knew that I had a positive and friendly ally in the case, willing to work with me move in a healthy direction. Christopher made the step-by-step process so clear to my family and I that it no longer felt like a nightmarish mystery. He spoke with my mother, my girlfriend and me at length to keep us updated, to inform us of future steps and to assuage our concerns throughout this exasperating case. He has an excellent ability to break the courtroom hallway tension with his positive attitude and humor, which really helped keep us upbeat throughout the case. It was a standing joke throughout the case that Christopher wore many hats (chaplain, physician, golfer, therapist) but that is not far from the truth. He was more than just our attorney, he was a mentor and a friend; his efforts to help repave my future will always be appreciated as will his kind advice. In retrospect, my family, my girlfriend and I all agree that we couldn't have chosen a better ally and attorney, I recommend Christopher 100% and I hope that he can help you as well as he has helped me and my family.

I'm a criminal defense lawyer, and I have been serving Northern California for more than 30 years. I am currently taking a sabbatical leave from law practice for most of 2017. I am a specialist in criminal law, certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. Over the course of my career, I've defended virtually every type of criminal case, from drug offenses, low-level misdemeanors, and DUIs, to capital murder cases and serious felonies. Although I retired from government service as public defender of Yolo County in 2009, I stayed on in a transitional role up to March 2010. Throughout my term in office, I was the attorney of record for literally thousands of people in Yolo County every year. I am glad to be representing people on a one-to-one basis again. I realize that this might be a hard time for you. Contact me for a free and private consultation protected by the attorney-client privilege (which I will gladly provide, depending on schedule and availability).
