Life Saver; Forever Grateful
Posted by: a Criminal Defense client, 23 days ago.
I was faced with the potential of receiving 4 separate felony (drug-related) charges in 2011. As a young female who had trusted the wrong boy and one day hoped of utilizing her degree to obtain a respectable living 4 felonies would eliminate all chances. When I first met Mr. Dicks I was shocked, confused and scared to death. He was able to ease my fears from the first meeting, offering both a compassionate ear and a comprehensive knowledge of the law and criminal justice system in California. (particularly Vista/North County Court) With Mr. Dicks knowledge, relationships and skill he was able to get me a deal which involved an unsupervised probation (so I could return to my home state) pleading guilty to a felony for a period of time, then reducing that to a misdemeanor and an eventual expungement. It was initially supposed to be 3 years until I could have my probation terminated and record expunged. Thanks to Mr. Dicks perseverance and abilities as an effective lawyer we put in a motion for early termination of probation and expungement that was accepted this November, a YEAR before the sentence originally allowed. Mr. Dicks helped me through one of the darkest times of my life. I could not have asked for a better lawyer/adviser. His assistant Liz was also extremely helpful; there to answer questions, pass along information and provide reassurance. I would highly recommend Mr. Dicks and Liz to anyone seeking legal counsel. You can literally trust them with your life!
Do Not Hesitate to Hire this Man!

My son was charged with first degree burglary and obstruction. I was a nervous wreck when entering the office for the consultation. Mr. Dicks was very kind and compassionate from the get go and although there were clients waiting for him, he told me to take my time in relating the details of the case. Mr. Dicks was in no hurry to get me out of his office. It was easy to make the decision to retain this man to represent my son. The last words he said to me when I left--"I will take care of your son." Mr. Dicks was very knowledgeable and very responsive. His assistant, Liz, was a gem and always willing to help with my inquiries. My emails and phone calls were always acknowledged. They both wanted to make sure that all questions were answered to my satisfaction. The end result was what we requested and when the probation term lapses, Mr. Dicks will return to court to have the felony expunged from my son’s record. Mr. Dicks was quite impressive and seems to be able to write his own ticket around the courthouse.

James Dicks helped me after firing my first lawyer on a very hard DUI case. He is very knowledgeable of the contacts in the court system in the San Diego area and gives incredibly proactive, actionable and successful advice for your case. He is very available, attentive, responds with urgency and has great knowledge. I would recommend him for anyone fighting a DUI charge.

My son was involved in a burglary with special allegations. He was looking at about 6-10 years in prison. He got 180 days in work furlough and 3 years probation, no prison or jail.

Our son was involved in a car accident about a year ago and was arrested due to suspicion of a DUI (marijana). We were shocked and not sure where to turn. Mr. Dicks came highly recommended and when we arrived at his office he was kind, compassionate and very educated about this type of arrest. He informed us of the process we were about to encounter and kept us informed the entire time. He was always available for any questions and kept calm during the entire process. He is very knowledgeable about this type of case and the laws surrounding the issue. Our son's case was dismissed, (although he did face penalties at home - no driving for 1 year and loss of certain friends) he has gone onto college, where he was recruited to play his sport, and has remained clear of any more problems. I would hate to think where he would be without Mr. Dicks assistance! If you are a famiy facing this type of problem, I would highly recommend you see Mr. Dicks and trust him to do the right thing!!
