  • Paul Jeffrey Wallin

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Mike Carrillo is one of the brightest young lawyers I have ever worked with. He will stop at nothing to fight for his clients. He will put in whatever time or effort it takes, nights, weekends to make sure he is ready to aggressively defend his client. I had the pleasure of supervising Mike in the past and within a few weeks of working with him I could tell that he would be a brilliant lawyer. My instincts were entirely correct. Anyone considering hiring Mike to help them on their criminal law or famliy law case should know that he will fight very hard for them with 110%...I strongly endorse him.
