    Miranda works for Money, not for you!!!

    Divorce??? Run, don't walk away from the Miranda Law Group. There are other law firms out there who is best and cheaper than Miranda gropu. Here are just a few details...I paid over $17,000 for the Miranda Law Group to settle my divorce. The process started in late August 2013. First met with Tim Miranda and I gave my complete trust that he was the right partner to help me. First court date, he doesn't show up but some flunky that I've never met or spoken to. Gerald did such a poor job in representing me and I'm sure others, he was relived from the group. Notice now the timeline; I did not receive my divorce paper work until March of 2015. The divorce paper work that I received did not include a court stamped original in order for me to change my name. Even though, that was my desire, and documented. Not knowing this, I made an appointment with the local Social Security office for May 26th, soonest appointment I could get, took time off work and only to be told I did not have the blue stamped document that I needed from the court. Imagine my disappointment. Pissed is more like it. I have written many email messages to both Tim and Claudia who claim I got everything I needed. They suggested that I go down to the courthouse and request whatever I need. This was their job; I paid heavily for this as part of the $35,000+ dollars. I am unable to change my name without the documents that I need from the court, which they are to provide. I demand that they provide me with the paper work that is needed to change my name. I am currently in this name limbo hell, until I get this paper work. Nothing else can be changed until Social Security has made the change, with the correct paper work from the Miranda Law Group. Believe me, Miranda Law group works for Money not for you.

    Excellent

    I highly recommend Mr.Miranda. He was very helpful explaining my case and walking me through the whole agenda. He is really professional and he'll make you feel your the most important client he has. Always on point and communicates well via phone and email. Thanks to Mr.Miranda my son will now stay with me in San Diego instead of going with his mother away to Germany. 3-5-2015

    Outstanding

    Top Notch!
    Tim Miranda is one of a kind when it comes to family law attorneys. He treats your case as if it were his own. As a father who just wanted to spend more time with his kids he put me at ease. If you want a lawyer who works his butt off for you than look no further. Tim worked many nights and weekends on my case. It was not uncommon for him to call me in the late evenings or on the weekend whenever I needed to speak to him. His staff and legal team is very professional and was always available when I needed something. His prescence in the court room is superior. He is not only professional but well versed and organized. His efforts lead to me getting the additional parenting time for me to spend time with my daughters and allow them to remain in their current school. I can't thank you and your whole team enough.

    Highly Recommended

    I found Tim Miranda and his law firm through sights like this. After reading all of the reviews I was convinced he was exactly what I needed. I was in the middle of a child custody case and had just had a hearing where my current lawyer stuttered and mumbled through the case. I wasn't even sure if I had time to switch lawyers as I had a FCS appointment coming up in a few days
    I called early the next morning and got a call back even before the office opened and they saw me that day.
    After explaining my case I felt as Tim totally got it even better than my lawyer who was on the case. I was pretty stressed out at that time and Tim made the process seem more clear. He told me what his plan of action would be and helped counsel me on exactly what I needed to do and say at FCS.
    He was sharp on point well spoken and made me feel like I finally had some real guidance as to what I needed to do. His advice was positive yet realistic and always told me what the worst case scenario could be.
    At my next hearing I felt so much more confident and protected.
    The office is absolutely beautiful and the staff are all very friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend Miranda Law Group.

    Goliath thought he had it in the bag...

    Anyone who has ever been in family court knows that your whole life depends on the outcome of your hearing and you have only one chance to choose the right person to speak on your behalf. Sometimes, in these stressful situations when you don’t have a clear head you can only rely on your gut feelings. Claudia was my first contact. She walked me through their process and told me when Tim would phone me for a consult. Tim called me back as promised and gave me the feeling I had been waiting to feel in the pit of my stomach. The other consults I had didn’t give me the confidence I needed to get through this. Tim was candid, sharp, and described to me how he saw my case playing out if we worked together. I had finally met someone capable of taking on this fight with me and it changed everything.

    I have limited resources and my ex has unlimited resources. I felt like David going up against Goliath. Tim wasn't afraid of the challenge. Tim was even sensitive to my financial situation. Even though he could see that that I would go to the ends of the Earth for my child, he was careful with his billable hours, streamlined court appearances, and was very upfront with costs and fees. I was able to put my whole life in their hands and they helped me find my way through this process. This is a man who is good at his job!

    Seeing Tim in action was thrilling! When we were finished and walked out of our first appearance, I felt victorious! I know we still have a few more court appearances to deal with and growing pains to get through... But, I’m confident in posting this review and do not foresee any change in how I feel about how things are going. I am a woman of faith and I prayed to God for help. In a mysterious way, He led me to Tim.

    Outstanding Attorney - Highly Recommend

    My soon to be ex-wife dragged me into court on a trumped up TRO which had some very serious allegations against me.
    I was representing myself at one of the hearings and while waiting had the pleasure of watching Tim Miranda successively defending his client in the case ahead of mine.
    Realizing that I was in way over my head, I spoke with Tim after court and made an appointment.
    Following that, Tim came in as my attorney at the next hearing.
    At the conclusion of the hearing, the judge basically threw out my ex-wife and her attorney
    on their respective ears.
    Tim Miranda was extremely well prepared, provided outstanding trial representation and obtained
    a just result.
    I was a practicing trial lawyer for 14 years and know a fine attorney when I see one.
    If you have a legal problem: No question. Talk with Tim Miranda.

    Tim Miranda, attorney at law in San Diego, got my RESTRAINING ORDER dismissed ...with only 2 days to prepare!

    I found Tim online through a search on google for : "DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ATTORNEYS SAN DIEGO".
    I used to reside in California, but now reside in Arizona. I have had many, many legal problems with my ex, but when she called the police and filed a restraining order for...believe it or not...a text message argument, I thought I was screwed because I wasn't going to be able to make the court hearing on July 24th! I was in Arizona and the hearing was going to be in San Diego.
    I called Tim and right away...like 2 mins was immediately transferred to him and spoke directly with him.
    I told him I would be very brief so as not to take up too much time. He immediately told me to give him the full story of what happened and not worry about the time.
    This was on Monday afternoon July 22 and since the hearing was on July 24...it was extremely short notice.
    I also explained to Tim that I was not a Rockefeller or a Gates and was struggling financially. I felt his retainer ended up being fair although it was still tough for me to pay because of my financial situation.
    Tim told me he would do some research and then give me my options on the following day.
    He devised a strategy, but also did not sugar coat it. He gave me the what if scenarios in case things didn't go our way. I was glad to know the possibilities ...just in case.

    With hardly any notice or time to prepare, Tim showed up in court and....KICKED ASS!
    He got the restraining order dismissed and then gave me some good practical advice on how to deal with my ex: (lose her number and NO MORE contact!).

    Thanks Tim! If it hadn't been for you, and if i had ignored this hearing, there might be a warrant for my arrest, but happily, I am off the radar of the California courts.
    If I am ever harassed by my ex in the future, I know exactly who to contact: Mr. Timothy Miranda, EXPERT LAWYER!

    Rain to sunshine!

    Divorce was a stressful emotional time for me. My situation in my Divorce had so many implications that could have affected my life after the divorce in so many negative ways. The issues I contended had layers of factors that I knew I did not have the skill set or ability to present them to the court in a legal argument or protest any against myself so I pursued legal counsel through Tim Miranda Law Group.
    Tim Miranda took on my case and ensured me that I had a strong case and need representation and that he believed he could win the matters and without strong representation I could experience sever financial collateral damage from my divorce. My case took a year and seemed to drag on. My situation at home didn’t help as I had to tolerate the process and live in the gray unknown area with my EX. I was not the most content and trusting client for Tim and I expressed concern, doubt, questioned fees and every step along the way I was hyper vigilant and squarely with every activity of my divorce.
    Tim assigned my case to a Lawyer by the name of Gerald Hokstad who had the type of personality that was very direct and forward. At times I thought we were not on the same team because he only wanted to deal with the nuts and bolts of the case. I thought at times as I said before in my lack of trust I felt he may not be paying attention or tentative to all the factors that I thought was important. I started to believe Tim handed off my case because it was small potatoes.
    I wanted to fold so many times BUT when I was at my worst Gerald and Tim was at their best. They both had the ability to calm the storm and talk me down and at the same time defend their competence without telling me to take a walk. I stayed the course and I finally had my trail. The day of my trail it seemed to not be going in the direction that I anticipated. It seemed that the Judge was given less weight to all reports such as deposition, point and an argument filed but all to my Ex’s who represented herself at trail. My EX’s was given so much lead way with the court she spent hours giving her account made a prejudice emotional and circumstantial argument and the Judge stated was more creditable .
    I began to question if Gerald spent too much time talking and explain the legality of or case. I began to think if Gerald had listen to what I was trying to convey to him about the issues he would have been able to capture and illiterate them to the Judge. The next day I had to come back and do my closing and receive the judgment. Again I wanted to fold and settle and do my own closing and speak for myself. Tim said it’s not over and I would not advise you to go tomorrow alone! I had a failed attempt to settle with EX the day before and Gerald and I showed up in court to give closing.
    Gerald began to speak to the Judge and the sky opened up, doves began to fly, and the gates of haven were opened. Gerald spoke to the Judge in a passionate fashion about my character and intent and was able to present CASE LAW and parallel it to my case as to why the Judge should rule in my
    favor. Gerald did not leave one rock unturned and believe me I would have told him. He presented every factor that I thought of and didn’t think of that could influence the ruling in my favor. He ran off every point of interest in a chronological eloquent fashion and packaged my argument and tied a bow on it for the judge to make a decision on.
    The rulings came back better then what I ever expected! I walked away unscathed. I felt the covering and shield of Gerald’s ability to argue the case law in my case. The Judge in my case even made arguments in the favor of the other party but Gerald maintain his composer argued my case relative to the case law. Gerald understood the precedence of my case and the law and the Judge could not refute the Law. I may not have been able to influence the Judge as to my emotional experience or intent was in my relationship as well as my
