    • I recommend Thomas Hughes.
    • I hired Thomas more than 3 years ago.
    • Thomas handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I transfered my probation and san diego probation said I violated my probation. I hired Mr. Hughes the night before my hearing. He was able to get my violation removed and then he was able to get rid of my warrant for my arrest. I recommend him.

    I was in the san diego desert. the park rangers got me while I was enjoying myself out in the desert on my ATV. I was arrested for my 3rd DUI. Thomas told me I was facing 120 days in jail mandatory. Last week I got a wet reckless and didn't have to do any jail. Thank you!

    • I recommend Thomas Hughes.
    • I hired Thomas more than 3 years ago.
    • Thomas handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I was arrested for having about an ounce of meth on me. I was referred to Thomas Hughes because my friend who is another criminal defense attorney told me about Thomas Hughes being a former district attorney and has drug prosecution experience. SO I called him. HE is going to take my case. So far the police have stopped coming by my house and claiming they have a search warrant when they don't. This is my first offense and I am really excited that he has the experience to help me get into a drug program. My mom really wants to help and Thomas Hughes is allowing her but keeping all my information confidential. So far things are going well and I am excited to get this matter behind me. I have a job lined up! Criminal defense attorney is going to help me. Thank goodness. I whole heartedly recommend hughes.

    About three weeks ago, I crashed my motorcycle - which was not my fault. I was cut off by a Honda driver and forced down on the 15 freeway. I had to go to the hospital and miss work. I called attorney Thomas Hughes. He was extremely helpful. Even though Thomas doesn't do personal injury law, he provided me with valuable information about what to do to preserve my current lawsuit and referred me to a great Personal Injury law firm. Even though Thomas is exclusively a criminal defense attorney here in San Diego, I found him to be very knowledgeable and I ended up with a great personal injury lawyer.

    Halfway through my DUI, and I decided to hire Thomas Hughes as my criminal defense attorney here in San Diego. He is going to take over my DUI case being handled by a different law firm that charges for EVERYTHING! Thomas Hughes took over my case and is willing to take it all the way to trial, if it is beneficial to my case, for a very affordable fee. He has already spent hours helping me review the possible defenses on my criminal DUI case, and already has impressed me as a criminal defense attorney. I really appreciate his dedication and helpfulness! He has made the process of firing my old attorney and hiring Thomas Hughes Law an easy and painless process. I look forward to seeing the results of my case! AND! There are no hidden fees like the other DUI firm. His prior experience as a District Attorney has already helped me and I look forward to working with him through this difficult process. Thank you Mr. Hughes - you are a fantastic criminal defense attorney!

    I was fired from a job back in December 5, 2008 for embezzlement. Mr. Hughes helped me understand the potential time line for the San Diego County District Attorney's office to file charges against me. He helped me understand potential consequences I faced. Mr. Hughes helped me understand the possible criminal defenses I may have. Mr. Hughes was always available via cell phone, e-mail, or even TEXT MESSAGE!!! He helped me a lot, and so far, a year later the District Attorney has yet to file charges. This is really exciting, and because of MR. Hughes iI was able to get another retail job today infact and why I write this review. His criminal defense knowledge because of his former background as a District Attorney is very helpful. He spent a lot of time with me and the results so far have worked in my favor. Thank you again Mr. Hughes. His criminal defense knowledge in San Diego was helpful.
