I probably dealt with 10 different lawyers before choosing Raul! Some will try to sell you their credentials claiming to work with celebrities and then others will just get their assistants to talk to you! Ridiculous. I'm telling you people, don't settle for that crap. I called Raul's office and he spoke with me, not some assistant. He gave answers when I had questions, was helpful and informative. I would recommend him to my personal friends if they ever needed it!
Last June our son found himself calling 911 to get help for his suicidal bi-polar girlfriend, only to be arrested, cuffed and jailed for domestic abuse when the girlfriend accused our son of hurting her. It's been a nightmare from the beginning: the jail, the bondsman, the inexperienced court appointed attorney, the disturbingly pompous judge. We'd never dealt with the criminal justice system: EVER! After an exhaustive online search we decided to ask Raul Sabado to help us. What sold us from the beginning was that in addition to running his own law firm, he teaches at Cal Poly. Raul is very good at explaining things because he is a teacher. We felt from the beginning that Raul was looking out for our son's best interests. We asked so many questions and he answered without making us feel completely ignorant. In the end our son plead guilty to a lesser charge to avoid a jury trial and possible jail time. Raul orchestrated the best possible deal he could. The Sabado staff, especially Miriam, are caring and hard working. We hope we never set foot in a courtroom again, but if we do, we'd pick Raul Sabado to defend us in a heartbeat.
Mr. Sabado is a brilliant and exceptional lawyer. He is very honest and realistic when it comes to a case. He will go over all options and potential outcomes with you so you know exactly where you are headed. After explaining all this, the decision is yours but Mr. Sabado will be behind you 100%. Great lawyer! Great experience!
Raul is a very experienced lawyer which I would never hesitate to give a call again. I got into some trouble in san bernardino county and was court dated for two misdemeanor cases. Raul explained to me his plans and how he was going to fight my case before i even paid him for his services. I felt assured he was going to do his best to get the cases dismissed so i contracted him as my lawyer. Not only was he helpful in making me feel i could trust him but he also allowed me to be able to make payments for him to defend me. Two days after my court date i received a letter from santa barbara county stating that my cases were dropped. Thanks a lot Raul i greatly appreciate your help. GC
Mr. Sabado is an excellent attorney. I worked with him for several years. He is very caring, knowledgeable, trustworthy and professional. I would recommend him to anyone who needed the assistance of an attorney.
I hired Raul to help me during my divorce proceedings. He was very knowledgeable and helped take care of all the paperwork and legal aspects of this trying emotional time. He was always very responsive when I called and I felt he was definitely in my corner fighting for me.
I seeked legal counsel from Raul Sabado recently and he was honest, straightforward, extremely knowledgeable, and passionate about his work and clients. Sabado genuinely cares about his clients, he even checked in after the legal matter had been settled (favorably). He was honest throughout the whole process and presented the facts of the situation I was in and my legal options clearly and honestly. If you want an exceptional attorney who is honest, straightforward, and genuinely cares I would strongly recommend Raul Sabado.
Sabado really help me navigate through the court processes. It was a really stressful time in my life and I felt that he helped me obtain the results that I wanted. I did not do any jail time but did have to do a lengthy D.U.I. second offender program (Aprox. 2 yrs) Regardless, I was able to save my University education and Sabado motivated me to pursue a law school degree even with this offense on my record. I highly recommend him if you want someone real.

He is not only reliable and demonstrates great professionalism, but he offers insight and support as well. He cares about his work and his clients. The outcome of my case was favorable, but even if it had not been, I would still recommend him. Raul helped me survive a stressful situation in my life. He enabled me to move forward and make positive changes, and for that I will be forever thankful.
Raul will represent you to the best of his ability and he will never let you down. It's difficult to find a knowledgeable, experienced and diligent attorney.
