Mario Madrid was the right attorney for me. Most people don't want a DWI on their record, especially knowing they were NOT driving under the influence of alcohol. I hold a pretty decent job, so I wanted an attorney that would get my case dismissed so that I wouldn't put my good standing in jeopardy. Mario Madrid successfully got my case dismissed. He was always straight to the point in all of our interactions, which was extremely helpful. I was able to trust him and I know I put my case in the right hands. I would definitely recommend Mario to anyone who needs an attorney who, above all, gets the job done right.
Mario helped me out on a case for about two years. In those two years he was really helpful and always had good communication with me. He went to trial for me and got my case completely dismissed. I appreciate his work.
My son picked up three possession charges as well as an assault case and we hired an attorney that was unreliable and never returned any of the calls that my wife and I made. The only times we would see him would be in court and he was always in a hurry to get to his other customers. In the brief encounters we would have, he would tell us that he "honestly" thought that our son was looking at a very serious outcome for his felonies. We took our chances and hired Mr. Madrid and dropped the old lawyer. Mr. Madrid was everything the other attorney wasn't: he was always on time and always open to communication. He didn't say negative things that would discourage our family. In the end, our son got two of his possession charges dismissed and for his two other cases, he got four years of probation. That's no jail time, which is what the other attorney was hinting. Mr. Madrid is a really good attorney. He's straight to the point and he really, really knows his stuff. I'm glad we found him.
I was charged with DWI offense during the time of making a transition to a new job. I was worried about the open case reflecting on my background check. Mario handled the case favorably and got it dismissed. I couldn't ask for a better outcome. I 100% recommend Mario. I'm very thankful and glad of the work done.
Mario helped me with a matter and was not only very informative and helpful but very available with all forms of communication to answer any questions I had pertaining to my case and options each step of the process. He was very knowledgeable and got more favorable a result than I had originally hoped for. Not only was he well versed in the law but also explained thins very clearly so as not to be confusing. I cannot recommend Mario's services enough and thank him very earnestly for all he's done to help me in a very scary time in my life.
In the midst of an argument, some complications occurred between my partner and I and I got charged with Assault of a Family Member. I got on the internet and looked up defense attorneys that could possibly represent me in court for my case. Avvo is actually the website I used for finding Mario Madrid. I decided to hire him after making an appointment to meet with him. At first I was offered two years of probation but Mario Madrid fought to get my case dismissed altogether. I had to complete the BIPP program and upon completion this last March, my case was dismissed. Mario Madrid helped not only get my case dismissed but helped the relationship between my partner and I.
I was in a bad spot earlier this year with a charge that Mario helped me get probation for. I go to school full time and going to jail would've set me back a lot in my studies. Mario was very understanding and always had my needs in mind when handling my case. Thanks to him, I just have to complete the pretrial diversion program and I'll be good to go.
Mario is a great attorny. He helped me get pretrial diversion for my misdemeanor and I got my case dismissed. I had never been in trouble before and I'm glad that my mistake wasnt used against me you know. He always showed up to court on time, his assistant was nice, and his secretery was nice too. They are all friendly their.
Last year, I got picked up for theft. They were offering me six months in jail for that. I didn't want to do any time so I told Mario that I definitely didn't want to go to jail and if he could please try to get me probation. He was always helpful and was good at keeping in touch with me. It was never a hassle to get in touch with him, like it had been with attorneys in the past. Not only did he get me no jail time, but he go my case dismissed despite of my prior misdemeanors. He's a good attorney.
After a misunderstanding, I got arrested and charged with a misdemeanor for terroristic threat. I had one prior felony but I didn't want to do no jail time. I knew that the whole incident was a misunderstanding and I felt like Mario knew that as well. He met with me a few times and we went over the police report on one of those times. I wasn't feeling what the court was offering me so I decided I wanted to go to trial. Mario was ready to back me up and I was ready to fight my case. On the day of the trial, my case got dismissed. I am forever grateful and I will recommend Mario to anyone I know.
