Stands out from the rest!
I had to retain him for several matters in the past and as busy as he is he's always taken the time to explain the situation in detail every step of the way and make me feel like I am his only client. I never felt rush out of a meeting and his knowledge of the law always puts me at ease. I've retained many lawyers in the past and I've always felt like just a number to them but that is never the case with Jimmy. At any given time he remembers exactly what my situation is in a case anytime I call him.

Summary

My practice is limited to criminal defense and DUI's. My criminal law background, and experience in the field provides me with a unique point of view of the criminal system that allows me to more appropriately advocate on behalf of my clients. I truly believe that good people often times make bad choices and/or decisions in life, and that everyone is entitled to good representation.

EXCLUSIVE PRACTICE - My practice is limited to Criminal Defense, and DUI's exclusively. I graduated law school with a certificate in criminal law studies. A certificated allotted to only a few students who go above and beyond their normal curriculum in the field of criminal law. While at UCLA and law school, I worked as an intern for a local criminal defense firm. While in law school, I exerned in the Orange County Public Defender's Office and Juvenile Defender's Office. Upon graduation of law school, I opened up my own criminal defense practice to defend those who have been accused of committing a crime. This is all I have ever done, and all I ever will do in the field of law, as it is has been my life long goal and passion to help other people.

CUSTOMER SERVICE - I treat clients the way I would want my mother to be treated if she was facing legal problems - with honestly, kindness, and respect. I don't scare clients into retaining me. I am honest and straight forward about a case, even when it is something the client does not want to hear. I answer all my calls personally because the last thing you want to do is call your attorney and get a secretary who has no idea who you are or the posture of your case. If I do not pick up your call, leave a message. I will call you back asap.

FREE CONSULTATIONS - I will personally speak to you over the phone, and try to answer any questions that you may have. An informed client is the best client.

I'm located in Fullerton, CA. Call for a free consultation. (714) 676-5451 or you can reach me on my work cell at (310) 498-1201.
