Mr. K represented me in a trial. I was in jail because I couldn't make bail. He came to see me to discuss my case. He explained all the evidence to me and helped me understand the good and bad parts of my case. He gave me all the information I needed to decide how I wanted to proceed in my case. He came to visit me in jail frequently to help prepare me for trial. At trial, he was great and was able to get the case dismissed.
I hired Mr. Kaloyanides to represent me in a tax case. He met with me right away, evaluated my case, and helped me understand my options. He reviewed the documents and evidence with me and helped explain the strategy in the case. He met with me regularly and kept me informed. I appreciated that he always made sure I was part of the decision process. In the end, he got the case against me dropped. I highly recommend Mr. Kaloyanides.
My ex accused me of assault. The DA filed charges against me and ignored my side of the story. I hired David to help. He pulled out all the stops and made the DA investigate my story. He demanded the DA turn over evidence about my ex-information the DA never bothered to investigation. David found the evidence that showed I was actually the victim. David never quit. He kept pushing and got my case dropped. He never stopped fighting for me. He's the most dedicated lawyer I ever met.
This attorney represented me in a 2006 federal trial for conspiracy to distribute meth and I was extremely disappointed in his efforts. I lost the trial and received a considerable prison sentence. Long story short I found this attorney to be unresponsive to the many questions I had about my case. He also said he was going to do many things for me but did absolutely nothing when everything was said and done and because of this I say he is undependable. I felt I could of defended myself at trial and done a better job than this guy. I cannot recommend this attorney and my best advice to anyone searching for a criminal defense lawyer is to keep looking and find another attorney. You will thank me for this down the road.
Mr. K was my federal appointed lawyer for a prison assault case. I was already doing time on a drug case, and instead of pushing me to take a quick deal because I was already in prison, Mr. K listened to my side of the story, he worked hard fighting the evidence, he used his computers and technology at trial to tear apart the government's case. He always made sure I knew what I was up against. But he let me make the decision, and we took it to trial and won. It might not be a big deal to some because I was serving time on another case, but it didn't matter to Mr. K. He fought hard and showed the jury that the government witnesses were lying and the evidence showed I was not guilty.
This man represent me in federal court for naturalization fraud about 5 years ago in Santa Ana. I didn't feel he did good job and didn't care if I win or lose and I did lose. I got sentenced to about 19 months in federal prison. If I could do it over again I would ask for different lawyer because this one not good. I also got deported once I got done with prison.
David is great. He appeared in court the same day my family called, even before we were able to pay him. He jumped on my case, started investigating and reviewing the DA's evidence right away. He came to visit me regularly in jail, he explained the evidence against me and what he thought we could do to fight the case. But he was most concerned with what I wanted to do. I never felt he was pushing me to do what I did not want. He helped me make a decision and then worked hard to get the best result. He worked out a great deal for me that got me out of jail right away and back home to my family. Any time I've had a question, he's been right there to answer it for me.
Attorney Kaloyanides helped me with my state case. I hired him before the case was filed. It was a very anxious time for me. He helped me understand the case and my options. He helped me get charges lowered and worked to help me get a good deal so I could move on with my life. I recommend Attorney Kaloyanides.
David was appointed as my lawyer in a federal case in which I was accused of a scheme to defraud investors. The mere accusation nearly destroyed my business. David worked tirelessly to build my defense, he pulled together a terrific defense team who worked very hard. David was very upfront with the strengths and weaknesses of my case. But he never stopped fighting and pushed the government on the evidence and their claims against me. Although it took many years of work and waiting, David got the case against me dismissed. He is a lifesaver.
This attorney was assigned to me in federal court for felony weapons charges. There were numerous reasons I felt I got the short end of the deal with this guy. First, he never explained to me the possible outcomes of my case and kept me out of the loop the entire time. Second, he became way too friendly with the DA for my liking so I never felt I could trust him. Third and most frustrating was that he was very unresponsive to my family's requests for information about my case. He never returned phone calls and rarely communicated with my family regarding the status of my case. I can honestly say I felt I didn't get a fair shake with this guy as my attorney so I took a plea deal for prison time.
