    • I recommend Mary Bernal.
    • I hired Mary 1-3 years ago.
    • Mary handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    All I can say is I am so glad we found Mary. My son was arrested and falsely accused by a jealous exgirlfriend. We were a mess.. Went to see a few lawyers and they made us feel like all they wanted was money as we were walking to our car, I saw Marys number gave her a call. From the moment I talked to her, I felt at peace. She was so nice and helpful. Once we met with her, we knew she was the lawyer for us. She fought for my son, the DA did not file charges. Now Mary is helping us remove the arrest from my sons record. I am so Thankful we found Mary and highly recommend her to everyone.

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

    Ms. Bernal helped me in a criminal case. She cared about what happened to me and was there whenever I had a question. Most attorneys do not give their personal cell phone number to be reached but she did. She knew the court personnel and helped me get a deal with no time even though I was told by the public defender that I was going to state prison. Ms. Bernal is trustworthy and I would hire her again if I needed help again. She allowed me to do payments and gave me the opportunity to put down what I could afford when other attorneys would not.

    • I recommend Mary Bernal.
    • I hired Mary 1-3 years ago.
    • Mary handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 7 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mary was very helpful in helping us with our case. She went out of her way to ensure we were getting the best service. Attorneys are famous for being "money hungry", and Miss Bernal did not display the typical characteristics of an Attorney. She is very caring efficient and yet highly knowledgeable in her field. I recommend Mary to anybody. I come from a large family, and I already recommended Mary to all of my brothers and sisters as well as to my colleagues.

    I was totally impressed with her service and the amount of money we paid her. She saved us a great deal of money. We need Attorneys like her. Who are dedicated and caring for their customers.

    • I do not recommend Mary Bernal.
    • I hired Mary more than 3 years ago.
    • Mary handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    She didn't seem like she knew what was going on. I ended up hiring another lawyer because all she seemd 2 care about was my money. She didn't even know what the charge was at first! I would not hire her again even for a parking ticket.

    We are a Medical Marijuana Dispensary, our paperwork is as legal as the State of California requires. San Bernardino DA has filed 3 felony charges against us.

    We interviewd 6 criminal attorneys. Mary was the only attorney that told us she would file a demur to have the case dismissed.

    Mary was wonderful. She let us know what could happen. She listens and answers the actual question being asked unlike 4 of the other attornies we spoke with.
