    Posted by Jackie Fisher


    Richard is incredibly knowledge about criminal law. He was personable and a 100 % committed to our case. He was prompt in all correspondence, emails and phone calls. He kept us informed every step of the way. He made our family feel very valued, respected and well represented. He did everything he said he would and more. Richard is no push over, he is a steadfast, passionate advocate. I highly recommend him to anyone fighting against a criminal charge. We were VERY pleased.

    Stop looking and hire Richard NOW!

    I have had what I will call the “unfortunate privilege” of working with Richard when I hired him to help a family member who an accused citizen at the time. His knowledge of the players in local courts, reputation of the local agencies, possible outcomes and analysis of the what best case/worst case/most likely scenarios would be was only over shadowed, during my experience with him was his clear and concise knowledge of the law, possible defense arguments and his ability to craft a comprehensive strategy to create the best possible outcome of bad situation. His professional demeanor and aggressive desire to WIN helped keep a very troublesome situation very tolerable. (albeit no less anxiety filled) I can say this in closing, Richard Canlas delivered! With the surgical precision he was able to execute on exactly what he said he was going to do when he said he was going to do it and kept us informed every step of the way. If you or a loved one in a bad situation my personal advice is to do whatever it takes to secure his services. You will not be disappointed.

    Expert legal help

    Richard Canlas is an outstanding attorney. I acquired his services when I had a serious, time-sensitive issue, and he handled it professionally, without delay. He clearly explained what needed to be done, and addressed all of my concerns in plain and easily understandable language. He was honest about potential outcomes, and offered straightforward solutions as circumstances progressed. The cost was reasonable and the value of knowing my needs were being managed appropriately gave me peace of mind.
    I will use Mr. Canlas again if I ever require future legal services, and recommend his expertise to anyone facing a legal challenge.

    Use judiciously - know what you want out of the case

    Use him for a really expensive trial but not for petty charges. Paid a lot of money but had to switch lawyers because nothing got done.

    One of the best I've hired

    Bottom line is, hire this guy if you can?
    When I first searched for a lawyer, I of course read all the reviews I could find on him as a potential counselor. I got a feeling that he was what I looking for as our case was very serious. Over and over again I read of dismissals, reductions in sentences, cases thrown out and found myself wishing I could be one of those individuals.
    Well, here I am months later, and I am one of those individuals! I hired Richard Canlas, followed his directions closely, and recently had my case dismissed. It was not without some work on my part. As I said, he gave me directions which were sometimes difficult to complete. I weathered criticism from friends and family that thought things wasn’t being handled correctly all the time. It was quite expensive. But in the end with the advantage of hind sight, I can see that hiring him, was the best decision I could have made at the time.
    I would definitely recommend him!

    Recommend Richard as a Criminal Defense Attorney without Hesistation

    Richard is an exceptional criminal defense lawyer that genuinely cares for his clients. He represented our child in a criminal case and managed to get the charges reduced significantly. Over the course of the case, he diligently dealt with an unresponsive and inconsistent ADA. Richard managed to get the best possible outcome given the circumstances of the case and the ADA. Richard also negotiated minimal terms for the probation period and quickly was able to get the record sealed.

    Richard clearly communicates the law, the circumstances of the case, and what his clients should do to improve their case. He always has his client's best interests in mind, both short and long term. I would recommend Richard as a criminal defense attorney without any hesistation.

    Couldn't have asked for a better outcome

    I would highly recommend Mr. Canlas to anyone who wants a lawyer who will aggressively fight to get them the best outcome possible for their case. From our first meeting, I felt like I was in good hands. He is very genuine and easy to talk to, and gets the job done. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney to represent me in court.

    Great Lawyer

    Richard was professional, diligent and effective. His
    Price was very reasonable and he got my case completely dismissed. I have had dealings with several lawyers in the past, and if you have the opportunity to retain this lawyer jump on it quickly. He is a UT grad and finished high in his class, so his credentials speak for themselves. Overall he is a great person and an even better attorney.

    Great lawyer

    Richard is a great lawyer and helped me avoid a dwi conviction on my record. His repution among the district attorneys defiantly helped get me an incredible plea deal. He kept me informed the whole process, and did not sugar coat any of the options i was given and informed me of the risks.
