Kris is a great and helpful lawyer. After making the mistake of driving under the influence (and getting caught), I was in a heap of trouble. Kris responded to my needs immediately, even coming to see me in jail on a Sunday morning, and was able to get me the absolute best possible result. Since I live in Houston, we was able to be my boots-on-the-ground in Phoenix, stay in contact with me and the courts, and help guide me through the system. I would have been in awful shape without his knowledge, expertise, and skill. While I hope to not have to use his services any time in the near future, I recommend him 110% for anyone facing DUI/Possession charges. I cannot say how grateful I am for all he did, and cannot recommend him enough. He will take amazing care of you, and totally turn around an awful situation. Thanks again Kris!

I hired Kris for a DUI case I had, and honestly could not have been more pleased with his representation. Kris is an honest and up front attorney. His retainer fee is fair and he works very hard to do the absolute best he can. He has great commutation skills, and is prompt to return calls. He always let me know anytime any changes were made in my made in my case. I would highly recommend Kris as an attorney. He was always on top of things in my case, and actually fought for my best interest. As I stated he is an honest and determined attorney that genuinely does have his clients defense in his best interest. I still am thankful and pleased with his representation!

Kris represented me in a DUI case. I do not understand much of the law or how it works, but Kris made it simple for me to understand what I was up against. Kris fought very hard for me and my case was dismissed because of Kris’ hard work and determination. I have never seen another attorney perform so brilliantly in court or with more professionalism. Kris is a fantastic attorney and a great guy!

Kris represented my husband in a DUI case. He went out his way to explain every step without overwhelming us with legalese. Kris is understanding and smart. My husband’s case ended in a victory and it was absolutely because of Kris’ quick thinking and extensive knowledge of DUI law. I highly recommend Kris as an honest, dependable, knowledgeable defense attorney.

I was in a car accident in August of 2014. In late December I was served with charges of a DUI for marijuana because thc was in my blood, which was completely out of surprised seeing I didn't even get a ticket. I went to court and got Kris as my lawyer. From day one I could tell he was a good lawyer and confident in his work. I don't trust many lawyers and it was easy to trust Kris. Long story short Kris was able to get my case dismissed 5 days before my jury trial date. I highly recommend Kris for anyone facing charges. I know I will keep his number and pass to anyone I know. Thanks Kris.

I made a huge mistake while on vacation in Arizona and drove under the influence, it was raining and I lost control of my vehicle and ran into a fence. After spending the night in jail and returning home i was devistated and humiliated I had previously received a DUI in my home state and this was going to be my second charge. As I found out during my consultations with other attorneys was that unlike my home state who in comparison is fairly easy on drivers charged with even theyre second DUI, Arizona is much different and the penalties are much tougher. I hired a large reputable firm after they woo'd me and told me everything was going to be ok, they would take care of this and I would get out of the mandatory 90 day jail time by doing home arrest instead, I hired them thinking they would help me. Two months had passed by I was no longer in touch with the lead attorney who talked me into signing, I was passed on to another who told me there was nothing to fight for there wasn't anything they could do and to add to it the county I received me DUI in didn't offer home arrest the only option was to spend 90 days in jail. I didn't know how I would be able to keep my life together spending 90 days, I work 2 full time jobs taking a day off is a pain, 3 months would have destroyed my career. My gut kept telling me that I hired that I hired the wrong attorneys so I did my research and was referred to Kris, I am beyond thankful for finding him. He told me to send my case over and he would review it and give me his opinion, I received a call the very next morning from him, he let me know it was going to be a fight but there were some holes in the case and he thought a better outcome could happen. I didn't hesitate for a minute, everything was telling me this was the RIGHT attorney, it was so refreshing to have after dealing with my previous attorneys, he was honest and straight forward with me he also treated me with respect and made me feel like I was still good person Who had made a mistake and I really needed and appreciated having that support from my attorney. He was so knowledgable about the DUI laws in Arizona and found some thing wrong in the initial arrest paperwork, finally I had hope. Kris kept in constant contact with me letting me know everything he found, letting me know each time he spoke with the DA and submitted plea offers, he went the extra mile for me every single time. Finally I received a call from Kris telling me they took our plea deal and I was reduced to first time DUI, my criminal damage charges for hitting the fence were dropped and he had even included in my plea for it to NOT be reported to the MVD as an accident. What a relief I was now looking at 1-30 days in jail instead of 90 days but Kris let me know we were going to ask for minimum days so that I could keep both of my jobs and sure enough he got the judge to agree to my day being served the night of the arrest. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome he is a truly gifted attorney. Even once my case had finished I was having trouble sorting out my DUI classes because I live in another state and the classes conflicted with my work schedule without hesitation Kris went to bat for me again speaking to the judge about alternatives to help me keep my jobs. I am thankful everyday that I found and hired Kris, I know my life would be very different today had I stuck with the first attorneys that I hired. He is god sent, of your are in any trouble there isn't anyone else I would recommend, after this experience I truly believe your case is only as strong as your attorney and Kris is the BEST out there.

Mr. Califano, was a pleasure to deal with. From the start, my experience was very comfortable. I never felt I was talked down to by someone stuck to their professional title. It always felt genuine, treated and respected by someone who truly represented my best interest in a very humane fashion. Mr. Califano put everything in perspective which made it very clear what my options were and made my decision fairly easy as to how I wanted to proceed with my particular case. He was timely in proceeding with my decision and the outcome was a success. I certainly would recommend his services to anyone and I know he would appreciate my referral.

Mr. Califano proved effective, professional and knowledgeable in handling my class one misdemeanor charge in Scottsdale City Court. He explained the charges, options and alternatives to me during the months long legal proceedings. He was punctual and effective in his interactions with the judge and court officials. While he was firm and honest during our discussions, he also showed understanding and empathy in what I found to be a confusing and intimidating experience. I attribute the excellent outcome to my charges to Mr. Califano's efforts. I would not engage the legal system without professional representation and I would definitely recommend Kris.
