Ed Welbourn was extraordinary and I want to share this with others who are in need of legal support and are looking for a superb attorney to represent them. I personally needed representation we were highly recommended to speak with Ed. Not only did he help me out in a stressful situation he was also very gracious towards me and my Parents in this stressful situation!
Ed Welbourn is by far the most professional, knowledgeable, attorrney I have ever dealt with. His attentiveness is evident as he makes himself available 24 hours to his clients to answer any questions or address concerns. He personally handles his clients rather than delegating to other attorneys within his firm. Ed is professional and dedicated to protecting his client’s rights. His compassion during a very stressful for time for me and my family was extraordinary. He listened attentively, was extremely thorough, patient and immediately engaged with the case. While the cases he worked with me on may not have been “high profile” to most, Ed treated them as such and made us feel like we were his only clients. On each matter his confidence radiated throughout the case.
Ed is a genuine, caring individual with a high level of integrity!!!! I thank Ed for all his care, concern and professionalism towards me and my Family!

Mr. Welbourn is very excellent in criminal defense. I had 2 attorneys fighting my 3 strikes case but did not feel good about the outcome. A different attorney referred me to him to take over the case. I was glad I went with Mr. Welbourn for his professional knowledge of the law, his excellent ability as a trial lawyer. My case went as far as jury trial. If convicted of all counts I could face a max sentence of 25 years to life.
Mr. Welbourn fought hard to win the case with excellent result, a misdemeanor with a sentencing of 60 days to do Pay To Stay program. I am strongly recommend Mr. Welbourn to need an excellent
attorney to defense your criminal case. Thank you Mr. Welbourn so much for your help to get my life back.

Ed was great guide through the storm of criminal law. He explained each step of the process thoroughly to me and prepared me for what to expect. After I explained my goals to him, he procured a plea for me that allowed me to achieve them when I was losing focus and hope.
In times of great stress Ed attempted to lighten the mood with a poignant joke and always kept a level head on the broader picture.
His strong background as a DA lead me to trust his advice about the plea deals offered, so I was certain that when he came to me touting that I should consider a particular one and compared it to the risks I was facing I knew it was the correct option for me.

Let me start by saying, it is must to have an attorney that was a former D.A. on your side. From the minute we walked into the court room, everyone knew and like him. "Ed fought for me." We went to court a many times and each time he knew what D.A. would have given me an unfair and ridiculous sentence. ED would not let that happen, instead he knew exactly what D.A we need to see and he would not stop until we got the right one. Each time we went to court Ed worked diligently to get me the best deal possible. After about three months of going to court we were finally were able to reach a fair compromise. On a more personnel note, going to court was a huge ordeal, and at times, I wasn't sure what was going to happen. With Ed Welbourn at my side I knew I would have the best possible chance. I highly recommend Ed to anyone!

Ed has literally saved my son's life. In a society of zero tolerance attitudes towards inappropriate behavior of young men, there are no second chances when you make a mistake.(or two) The lifelong stigma of negative information, due to the electronic age, hangs over people with troubled pasts. Ed Welbourn is a lifesaver. He has kept my son from making a permanent turn in the wrong direction, by finding him second chances. He is a better person due to Ed's efforts and accomplishments on his behalf. (Something he would not have gotten without a lawyer.)

Ed made a very confusing and scary experience much less so with his caring and professional expertise. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking the best in the business.

I totally admire Mr. Welbourn as he is one of the most professional people I have ever met. It has been my experience that he shows a genuine interest in people and really takes time to listen, which I found refreshing, as attorneys are very busy. I further was impressed with Mr. Welbourne in that he was consistent in accepting and returning phone calls on my case. Mr. Welbourne was very honest with me and at the same time showed by his interest and actions that he really cared about me as an individual. Mr. Welbourne was able to get my DUI arrest reduced to a wet reckless, and I was very happy with this outcome and with his services. I would also like to comment that his office, run by his paralegal Nicky, is dependable and extremely professional. I wouldd highly recommend Mr. Welbourne to assist you in any criminal case.

Ed Welbourne is an enthusiastic litigator, well-versed in the "ins-and-outs" of orange county law and he knows people in the DA's office (always a plus). He has been candid in his assessment of my legal predicaments, appeared in court by my side, and has skillfully guided me through the confusing maze of the Orange County legal system. He is a fine young, but-not-too-young, attorney. If I ever need an attorney in the future, he will definitely be my go-to guy.

It is not often that I write letters of recommendation for individuals. However, my experience with Ed Welbourn was extraordinary and I want to share this with others who are in need of legal support and are looking for a superb attorney to represent them. Being a working professional, I have had the opportunity to work with attoneys on a variety of legal matters throughout my career. When my family and I personally needed representation we were highly recommended to speak with Ed. We have now worked with Ed on variety of legal matters including DUI, Hit and Run and getting a DUI conviction expunged. These matters were within Orange County and outside of the county. Although Ed is based in Orange County, he made himself readily available to travel to other counties. Ed is recognized as an outstanding attorney not only in Orange County but surrounding counties as well. From the moment I met Ed I was extremely impressed. Ed Welbourn is by far the most professional, knowledgeable, realistic attorney I have ever dealt with. His attentiveness is evident as he makes himself available 24 hours to his clients to answer any questions or address concerns. He personally handles his clients rather than delegating to other attorneys within his firm. Ed is professional and dedicated to protecting his client’s rights. His compassion during a very stressful for time for me and my family was extraordinary. He listened attentively, was extremely thorough, patient and immediately engaged with the case. While the cases he worked with me on may not have been “high profile” to most, Ed treated them as such and made us feel like we were his only clients. On each matter his confidence radiated throughout the case. His office staff is professional and shares Ed's compassion for his clients. Ed is a genuine, caring individual with a high level of integrity. Throughout all the matters I have worked with Ed on, I was impressed and pleasantly surprised at the level of dedication, commitment and energy he put into all three cases. I have referred Ed to others that are in need of excellent representation. They too have shared the same sentiment. If you are in need of superior legal support, I highly recommend that you call Ed Welbourn. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Thomas Edward Welbourn saved my sanity. I made a foolish decision and thought the consequences were going to be jail time. I know that hiring him as my attorney truly placed me in a better position and gave me results that are far better then I expected. He is not only professional but compassionate and very patient with all my questions, worries and mini-nervous breakdowns. I would highly recommend him, well worth it! His assistant Niki is always very helpful as well.
