One of my family members found Ms. Cini and she called me very promptly about my misdemeanor charge. I gave her my statement over the phone and she did a great job explaining what the worst possible case could be, but since it was my first offense, she told me that I would most likely have a better outcome. She always responded to me emails quickly and called me to check in often to make sure I understood everything that was going on with my case. Because of my type of case I never had to appear in court, but either way she represented me very well and my case was dismissed. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Maltaise is the finest and most caring lawyer I could ever ask for. She represented me in a case that was very difficult and stood by me and fought for me for several years until I achieved a fair and good result. I was very lucky to find her and recommend her to anyone with a difficult situation.

I hired Ms. Cini to help me with a DUI case and then later traffic citations. Not only does Ms. Cini know the law and how to best represent you, but she is compassionate and understanding. She helped me navigate the DUI case and followed up with me to make sure I have completed all requirements to get my license reinstated. Ms. Cini was able to navigate the court proceedings to fit into my work schedule and helped me to avoid further consequences at work. She is awesome!

Very professional and responsive. Always made sure to keep me informed and advised as to what she felt was in my best interests. Highly recommend. She provided detailed information throughout the entire process especially as the incident took place in Orange County and I live in Northern California.

I hired Mrs. Cini several years ago to fight a possible felony case for me with jail time. I am a mother to 2 girls and have made some bad choices in my life due to a high frequency of emotional troubles. Mostly because I never took the time to get the help I need after trauma in my life. All my fault. I will be blunt, all my charges revolved around shoplifting. Because this wasn't my first offense I was looking at a possible 1 year in jail and wobbling to a felony because of how many times I have offended. Mrs. Cini took on my case without judgement. She saw me on a weekend in her office with my friend, and worked diligently on my case from day 1 all the way to the very end. She has always been verbally supportive and had a positive outlook when I was at my lowest. After much much hard work, many hearings on her part she got me the home confinement I was looking for that would allow me to keep my job and continue to raise my youngest daughter with no interruptions in her life. I didn't want my daughter who is well grounded and a grade A student to pay for my horrible actions. Fast forward 2.5 years later...I have had almost 3 years of therapy and my daughter is happily attending SDSU and our family is stronger than ever. I have moved out of state and am employed and moving forward. I have never wanted to live off of society and having a hard working attorney has allowed me the opportunity to change and move forward and thrive. What a difference it made in my life to find the right attorney. Just this week, Mrs. Cini was able to get a judge to terminate my probation even though the D.A. was fighting it and she is moving to get my cases expunged.
If you are having doubts about spending more on an attorney, do not think twice. What is your life and family worth? Money comes and goes. But we get once chance to get things right. Mrs. Cini is worth every dollar that I have paid to her. I am forever grateful that I found Mrs. Cini when I did. I'm pretty sure that if I had gone with anyone else my life would look a whole lot different right now.

It was the weekend and as reality set in, the severity of my situation was becoming clear to me that I was going to need an attorney immediately. I had no idea who to turn to. I'm a conservative mom living in Newport Beach. I thought that events like this happened to 'other people'. I was embarrassed and nervous. I don't even have traffic ticket. I certainly wasn't going to call friends to ask about a criminal defense attorney. I found Maltaise on Avvo. I chose her because of her excellent rating. She answered my call (on the weekend). It didn't even go to voicemail! She went to work right away. She was kind, compassionate and reassuring. Most importantly she was successful. I am extremely grateful for her. She literally saved the lives of all parties involved.

I located Ms.Cini on AVVO and she returned my call promptly. She was helpful from the very beginning after the state decided to charge me with two misdemeanors. I had never had any issues with the law and she reassured me and provided me with detailed information on possible outcomes. My case seemed to be drawn out due to the information provided by law enforcement and the DA's office but considering the facts around my case and person involved she was able to have the two charges dismissed and I agreed to plea to a lesser charge of disturbing the peace. In the end it could have been a lot worse and she succeeded to provide great results. Of course a total dismissal would have been great but that wasn't possible. She is professional and reliable. She also returns calls and emails in a timely manner. If I ever need to hire a lawyer again (which hopefully I do not) I will definitely contact Ms. Cini for her assistance and legal advice. Thank you for your help!

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.
