Approximately 2 years ago I Ramiro hired Mr Rojas to Care for my case. Assault to a family member with a deadly weapon. Mr. Madrid reset the case approximately 6 times before putting me before the judge. I was pleading my right as an innocent man but Mr. Madrid intimidated me with you have to plead guilty or the DA has already told me that this was your last reset. I suffered many things for the love of the family. At the time it was my common law wife, my new born daughter and myself living in a living room at an appartment complex. Due to an infidelity months prior to August 28,2012 Brenda and I would have the same conversations over and over. On August 28,2012 if I am not mistaken Brenda dug thru some of my personal belongings which I didn't mind her doing. There she found a newly opened box of Condoms and blew up on me. I explained to her that I had just bought the box of Condoms for us. Brenda had given birth to my first ever baby girl on 7/23/2012. I was and still am the happiest man on earth. Brenda continued on her disbelief and sought to get revenge by causing disruption in our living area. I had talked to Brenda every month prior and almost every week sometimes everyday about forgiveness more than anything because of the family we sought to have. Well it didn't go well that night. August 28,2012 after Brenda has found the condoms in my drawer she begans to scream and yell. I have my newborn baby in my arms for she alway's keeped closer to me than she did with mom. And Brenda begins to say why did I cheat on her. All i could say was, that was an error from the past that we shouldn't continue living in the past. To forgive me. But Brenda did not. She only got more aggressive and hostile with me. Being that i had my newborn child in my arms. I had warned Brenda in the past that if she couldnt forgive me one day i would leave her side. Well that night was the night i decided to leave. Motivated for the simple and biggest reason of all, my daughter was born i couldn't remain in the living area much longer due to the problems arising from one confessed infidelity. Had there been any other times i had been unfaithful to Brenda. Brenda wouldnt know from my mouth. Brenda that night got so out of control that she scared me. I had my newborn babygirl in my hands. I feared for my life and for the life of my child. I decided to walk out of the appartmen with my baby in my arms then Brenda got infront of the door. She begun to speak in words that i didnt find acceptable and i asked her to please let me out! Brenda refused to let me out of my home. I then laid my daughter in the bed where she would sleep with us every night since she had come home. I told Brenda that our relationship was not healthy for our child and that i will leave that very night that very moment. Brenda then begun to slap me scratch me and bite me. I shoved her away from me pushing her against the door right behind her. And told her to please let me out. She fell to the ground and i was frightened. I didnt shove her with much force so in my concious i thought she might be doing that to hold me from leaving. So i pulled her out the door way and as i am unlocking the two safe's. Brenda pushes me out the door way and begins to punch me on my head. I had not done anything to her other than tried to get her out the way so i can leave. At one point i thought of using my force but that wasnt enough to stop brenda from punishing me for the infidelity she had suffered with me in the past. I couldnt get her to move away from me as she continually rouse in more anger. I then feared for my life and my daughters. I ran to the kitchen were i keped a 9mm rugger and just by showing force brenda reacted. I couldnt believe what had become of me or brenda. So she ran out the appartment and i staid with my daughter. Later about 5 police officers were pointing their guns at my baby and me asi cameout myhome.Im innocent!
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.
When I got picked up for having marijuana on me I just knew I would have to go to jail. One of my dad's friends referred me to Mario because he had worked with him on his third DWI and had gotten probation. I met with Mario and he basically told me what I could possibly face. I told him that I knew I would probably end up going to jail. That was something that would hurt me because I have a wife and a baby at home. I really liked that he gave me his cell number to call him if I had any questions. I ended up doing a plea and getting two years of probation. I think Mario knew how important it was for me not to go to jail and he really fought my case. I knew it wasn't my first drug conviction, but I'm really trying to change my life around. Mario gave me that chance to do so. I've been clean since November of last year when I got arrested and I don't ever want to go back. Thank you Mario Madrid.
