  • Nicholas J. Moore

    Paul Pfingst is the best criminal defense attorney in San Diego. I had the great privilege to work alongside Paul on multiple felony cases for two years. His level of knowledge of the criminal justice system is unrivaled, and his 35+ years of trial experience put him in an elite class of trial lawyers. Paul is such a persuasive advocate that it is common to see young members of the San Diego District Attorney's office attend Paul's trials to learn from his opening and closing arguments. On a humorous note, at least once a week a random person would approach me in the courthouse, and mistake me as one of Paul's clients, just to let me know that I have "the best attorney in San Diego," representing me.
