Ramon Valdez is one of the best criminal lawyers in the state. I was referred to him by a former friend who was facing 50 years in prision and only got 5. I used him on two cases. One was a Substantial Battery-Intend Bodily Harm & the other was Carrying a Concealed Weapon. The Battery case was the most serious. The assist DA told the so called victim that he better be telling the truth about everything cause the lawyer I have is very good and she hadn't won a case against him. That case got thrown out of court with the help of Ramon's private investigator right before trial was going to start. The other charge with the weapon went all the way through trial and I was found not guilty. He totally destroyed the whitness's testimony as well as the police officer's. I was found NOT GUILTY and the asst DA began to cry upon the judge's deccision. Ramon sticks up for people like myself who have been wrongly accused of crimes they have not commited. I myself have referred 4 people to Ramon and all of them came out of the courthouse with a fair shake.
Many years ago I was charged with "Retail theft", a crime which I did not commit. A private attorney told me to plead guilty and go to jail because I had a prior conviction. I was very poor so I tried the Public Defenders Office. Mr. Valdez was my attorney. I told him I was innocent, but that I would plead guilty if he thought he could get me probation. He said he was not interested in entering a guilty plea for an innocent person. We went to trial and he got me an acquittal. He was the best thing that ever happened to me in the legal system. Coincidentally, my original "private attorney" was in the courtroom that day. He asked what I was doing on the witness stand since I was obviously guilty.
I guess you don't always get what you pay for... sometimes you get so much more! I will always be grateful to Ray Valdez, a wonderful lawyer and a wonderful human being.
