I was dealing with an extremely serious situation where i was looking at jail time. I'm a mother of three kids and couldnt afford to be away from my kids. After working with Mrs. Maltaise E Cini she was able to keep me out of jail and work out a favorable deal. She was kind and professional and very understanding of my circumstances. She never made me feel bad about my situation and she worked hard to keep my family together. I would recommend anyone wanting a lawyer that cares about their clients to give her a call.
I was referred to Ms. Cini by a friend of mine and I am so happy for that referral. Every time I spoke with Ms. Cini she was very informative and made sure I understood everything that was going on with my case. The day of my hearing I went in expecting the worst but thanks to Ms. Cini I was able to get my dui court case dismissed. I can't thank her enough! These reviews don't lie, if you need a dui attorney, Ms. Cini is the one for you.
Look no further for an attorney who is very aggressive and stands up to the courts and gets the job done. I hired two other attorneys that could not get me out of a 90 day jail sentence. I live in Louisiana and got a DUI in California while I was there working. I hired Maltaise and she got my mandatory jail time reduced to house arrest to satisfy my time. For that , I am greatful for her hard work and dedication. I highly recommend her! She is not a go with the flow lawyer! She will fight for you!
Maltaise gave me hope and inspiration back when she came in to my life...i was fighting a case for over a year and all i would hear was bad news, 6years,7years..as soon as maltasie took over my case she did not waist my time she filed motions and worked hard on my case .My time was brought down to 2years time served and thanks to her persistance and professonal hard work i was able to go home for mothers day. I am forever grateful to her dedication .
I would absolutely recommend Maltaise Cini!!! After shopping around for a lawyer for a good week, when I spoke with Mrs. Cini I knew she was the woman for the job. She was very aggressive in my defense and got my case dismissed with no penalties owed to the state. I was impressed with her reliability and her promptness. If you find yourself in some legal hot water, I would look no further and call her!
This is an amazing lawyer that i will exclusivly use if i ever have problems.
She sticks by you through the whole process and you can tell that she really cares how everything turns out for you. She is great at walking you through the whole process of what is going on and keeping you informed at all times. I hate that I had to use a lawyer, but picking a good one like her makes the whole process much less stressful!
Cannot say enough to tell you how responsive, responsible, knowledgeable and caring she is.
Maltaise Cini is a straight shooter,she won't sugar coat anything, she Is also very intelligent, Insightful and personable. Her experience as a crimnal defence attorney has been more than assuring for me! give her the facts, let her do what she does best, ( that would be defending you) and she will! My case had several twists and turns that could have landed me in jail or prison but everytime I went to court I walked away free, sometimes againist seeminly impossible odds..Maltsise has a cool confident ease in any court room situation I am very grateful for her services and upholding justice! ,I STRONGLY recommend her for your attorney I am free today bebecause of her experiene and skills as a seasoned attorney thank you Maltaise.
I've never had to deal directly with a lawyer before and Mrs. Cini exceeded my overall expectations: she was responsive, kept me in the loop as needed and was flexible on my payment (which was reasonable compared to other rates I was given). Because of Mrs. Cini, my involvement in the case was minimal and didn't interrupt with my work.
I hope I never need counsel again, but if i do, she'll be the one I call.
I have had my life saved (literally) twice by Maltaise Cini. In 1995 she represented me on a Three Strikes case, rather than 25 to life, I received (4) four years. Let's remember in 1995 there were no deals allowed and how she did that is still unknown to me. Unfortunately in 2002 I was convicted in a different case under theThree Strikes Law and was sentenced to 25 to Life. ( in 2002 Maltaise Cini was working at the Public Defenders Office in Orange County and was not for hire).Fast forward to 2013 and the passage of Proposition 36 (Three Strikes Reform Act). I hired her to file my petition and represent me on yet another life changing event, and again her professionalism, hard work and dedication came through with flying colors as I have regained my freedom and my family. She is more than an attorney that I trust, she is a life-long friend to me and my entire family, whom we all are externally grateful to.
Mrs. Cini and I first met in 2008, during our appointments together she learned a lot about me and I of her. She was efficient and persistent in my Criminal Defense, my co defendants stated they wished she was defending them instead of their attorneys. In trail she is aggressive and relentless. She always kept me well informed of my options, never disagreeing with my decisions. She is still my Attorney in 2014 on a related matter, I still look to her for guidance and advice during my ordeal.
