Unfortunately I was in a tough situation where I felt helpless and hopeless. A mistake I made in the past was haunting me. I did not know what to do or who to turn to but I knew I had to face my situation in order to move on with my life. LUCKILY I found Moises Aguilar! After our first conversation, I immediately knew he was the type of attorney I wanted on my side. He put me at ease and answered all my questions.
The day we went into court I was sure I would not be going home that day. It was a long day in the court room, and Mr. Aguilar worked tirelessly to get the best outcome...and lo and behold Moises said to me "You are going home today." Words cannot express how grateful I am to have found an attorney such as Moises Aguilar.
Although young, he is a savvy attorney and ready to win. His positive attitude makes him a great attorney. He is passionate about what he does. I would definitely recommend anybody in need of a criminal defense attorney to call Moises Aguilar.

I was charged for a crime I did not commit. My reputation was on the line, I called several attorneys all but one required an appointment in their office Mr. Moises Aguilar. He addressed my concerns and answered my questions in great detail right over the phone. By the third phone call I felt I already owned him a fee, he had not charged me one dime. To be safe I went ahead and met with several other attorneys. I hired Mr. Moises Aguilar, he contacted the DA and no charges were filed. I now keep his card in my wallet. If ever arrested again my first phone call will be to Mr. Moises Aguilar

After living my life in limbo for over two years, I knew things would not change unless I was being represented by a professional. In this situation, like most I received advice from everyone but a professional and until I did everything in reality was unclear and created irrelevant expectations, and in theory could be possible, but essentially were far-fetched.
Knowing Moises for years made him my first and only choice, but because of family and their ideas, I was expected to balance my options and get multiple opinions and after doing so, I was still confident with putting my freedom, future and life in hands of Moises Aguilar. Moises had the pin point accuracy to find my perfect defense. His in depth knowledge and precise predictions made his explanations answer every single question thoroughly and most of all comprehensible. What makes Moises incomparable to any other attorney is he’s truly humble and a righteous individual whose characteristics rub off on everyone; even the district attorney's who changed their minds and dropped my charges. I cannot thank Moises Aguilar enough, and recommend him to anyone that needs to hire an experienced, vested, and ethical attorney ensuring the optimal outcome of their uncertain situation.

When I was in need of an attorney to help aid me when i got into trouble regarding my driving record I'm glad i was able to find Moises Aguilar. Out of all the lawyers i had contacted, Moises was the only one who picked up the phone directly the very first time i called. He also set aside time for me to come in to review/discuss my case before we ever even talked about money. This is how much he cares about his clients, he looks out for their best interest, truly, he is not there to simply make money. He takes into consideration the person and everything related to that individual before taking any actions. Because i had an excess of traffic fines I was in jeopardy of losing my license for a year, and he was able to help me get it back so that i could continue driving to school and work. He takes his job seriously in every manner and he even gave me his cell phone number so that i could text him when i had any questions. He was able to give me peace of mind after i thought my life was going to crumble into pieces. I recommend you go into to talk to him so you can get a feel of his character for yourself. He even stated he would be willing to help me with an aspect of my case after a year and a half waiting period. Will update with results.

I seeked help from Moises for a wired case, in which I had a valid license in hand but the police still charged me as "unlicensed". I felt clueless and i don't really want to go to the court or face the judge. After reading all the previous positive reviews, i went to Moises, and the reviews turned out all true. He is responsible and efficient. He calmed me down at the very beginning by telling me that it could be a mistake mede by the police and it should be solved without much pain. And as he said, he really handled and solved it pretty easily. I would recommend him to others who are in need.

He was a great attorney and i highly recommend him to anyone. He made things very simple and straight to the point, but also got the best outcome for me. He always let me know what was going on and had great communication before and after my case. He's just overall a great lawyer and you can really tell he's an honest man. If your looking for a lawyer that is going to really try to get you the best results, Moises is the guy.

My name is Roberto M. i woul like to give my experience about my case that was handle by Moises Aguilar and Ben Sonnonstine, to be honest I had lost all hope on my case, because it had gonne over a year, i had hired another attorney that only took my $$ and didnt do much for me, I almost went to jail and was going to have to register for life, because that men didnt do anything for me, but thankfully I found Moises and Ben almost in the last minute, because i had my court less that 4 days before i talked to them, to start Moises was very accesible and put really close attention to me, he gave an appt ride away and since day one he made me feel very confortable and gave lots of hope, he was allways there to listen, did everythin possible to help me and what the other attorney didnt do in over 6 months, he did it in less than a month, him and Ben did a great representation and they were able to keep me out of jail and I didnt have to register and now i have peace in my heart and can be with my wife and have a new life and the chance to have a better life, i really have no words to thank this guys for all the help and God bless their hearts.

I got pulled over about 3 months ago and was charged with driving without a drivers license, failure to provide proof of insurance, and having a crack on my window. I forgot to go to court, so I contacted Mr. Aguilar in hopes of rectifying my situation before a bench warrant was issued in my name. Upon doing so, he immediately took a look at my case and gave me full details on what his course of action would be. Incorrect information from the DA's office resulted in me receiving a bench warrant, but Mr. Aguilar contacted me immediately to meet him in court to get it taken care of. I sat there case after case waiting for my name to be called, and in that time the judge gave no leniency to individuals failing to appear in court. So in my mind I was thinking the same would happen to me and I would have to pay the $325 Civil Assessment fee. I did however notice that the judge seemed annoyed that most people who had a misdemeanor like myself, waived their right to an attorney. When it was my turn to stand before the judge I immediately noticed his behavior towards me was different compared to the people that stood there before me. He asked Mr. Aguilar if I had been convicted of driving without a drivers license in the past, to which he replied no. The judge then turned my misdemeanor into an infraction, which I was absolutely shocked to hear since he failed to this with the people before me with the same charge. Next came failing to provide proof of insurance, which Mr. Aguilar made sure I brought to court with me, and just like that the charge was dismissed. Lastly, the civil assessment fee to which I had set in my mind would not be dismissed. Mr. Aguilar expressed to the judge my attempt to contact the courts when I received my ticket to make sure I appeared on my court date. And how incorrect information from the DA's office resulted in a bench warrant, he asked the judge to please consider dismissing that charge as well. Which the judge did. I walked in with a misdemeanor and 3 additional charges, three of the four charges were dismissed. The misdemeanor was turned into an infraction, and I walked away from it all extremely satisfied with the results. I am confident that had it not been for Mr. Aguilar, I would have been looking at fines that I simply could not afford. I am grateful for the services provided by Mr. Aguilar and would definitely recommend someone in need of a lawyer to contact his offices. As small as my case was he showed extreme interest, which I feel most lawyers fail to do.

Mr. Aguilar helped me from the minute I called him. I was so scared and ashamed of what I did. He told me good people make bad mistakes and he was here to help me correct it with as little damage as possible. He talked to me on the phone for about a 1/2 hour telling me h would take care of everything and that I had nothing to worry about. He got my felony reduced to a misdemeanor and with 6 hours of servce it will be erased from my record. Each time I called Mr. Aguilar he talked with me or called back within the same day. I feel that he not only is a good Attorney but really cares about his clients.

I went to Mr. Aguilar for my DUI case. Not only did he give me accurate information about my case and what to expect in court, but he was able to reduce my sentence at my hearing. I would certainly recommend him.

My husband got a citation for the 7th time driving with out a licensce and I was freaked out of my mind that he would be sent to jail for a long time and get deported. Then someone recommended me to these guys. They were straight out and friendly to me. These guys kept me in the loop from beginning to end. They were on the ball at all times. In the end my husband got fined, but with NO jail time :->. I felt that they did everything they could to help me out. I would recommend these guys to anyone who wants A+ honest lawyers.

I have never been in trouble before. I had no idea where to start or what to do. I was referred to Mr. Aguilar by a mutual friend. Mr. Aguilar took great care to explain, step by step, the process that was involved and what the likely alternatives were. He even advised me as to what to do in the event that I couldn't afford an attorney. I remember him telling me "please don't hire me unless I have made you feel 100% comfortable with me." At that point I knew he was right for me. The court process was smooth. I didn't have to show up to court at all - he took care of it all, always keeping me informed and always returning my calls promptly. I highly recommend Mr. Aguilar.

I recently have been having a lot of trouble with my attorney that I hired to do a loan modification for me and like the thousands of other people that were promised hope that they would get some relief my attorney just tried to keep my retainer fee and not really do anything. So I contacted Moises Aguilar and he was able to guide me in the right direction on what I should do and luckily I was able to handle everything on my own but with out him helping me out I would have never known my options that I had. It was really nice being able to speak to someone for some advice with out the meter running if you know what I mean… I highly recommend him… Thanks

I was involved in a hit and run. I had woken up at a friends house after sleeping off a few drinks. The state troopers showed up and could smell alcohol on me. i was give a field sobriety test and faile. When taken in to get BAC, I blew a .07. A point under the legal limit. I was charged with a DUI because I was sitting in my car for an hour before they showed up, so their argument was that at the time I was driving I was over the legal limit. Moises Aguilar had the whole case dismissed. His formula for getting it done was impeccable! I would highly recommend this attorney.

Moises Aguilar is a trustworthy lawyer. He is efficient, knowledgeable about the subject at hand, and very approachable. I felt very comfortable asking as many questions as possible and he always had a response. I will definitely recommend Moises to others.

Moises and his staff offered a level of trust that came right through the phone on our initial conversation. We hired him and he proved to be as efficient as promised. I have worked for the courts for 20 years and I deal with attorneys on a daily basis. Moises is one that I would recommend for Real Estate issues.

Personally, I believe I came across Moises Aguilar thanks to divine intervention. I'm a musician and with work being so slow, my economic status wasn't what we'd call stable. To make a long story short, I explained to Mr. Aguilar my situation; how I had been wrongfully accused and how I might end up in jail because I didn't have the resources to have a competent lawyer fighting for me. He was touched by my story and gave me his word to get me out of the hole I was in. From day one, he began fighting for me. After weeks of notorious hard work, Mr. Aguilar managed to remove the charges I was wrongfully being accused of.

I own a small business that offers income tax preparation and real estate services. We also offer money transfer services through one of the leading money transfer services. I was visited a couple of weeks ago by the transfer service field rep, who advised me that my contract was being terminated because her boss decided to appoint someone else next door to me. It wasn't the fact that I was no longer going to do business through this company that bothered me, it was the fact that I felt cheated - I had been loyal to that company for 7 years, feeding them MY clients, and just like that, they go behind my back and cut me out because someone else might be a little more "profitable."
I contacted Mr. Aguilar, who was referred to me by one of my clients. I explained to him my situation and my dissapointment with the company. He made me feel like he understood my problem. He reviewed my contract and immediately contacted Corporate. Within a matter of DAYS, my agency was reestablished! The field rep who had visited me earlier to cancel my appointment came in several days after i contacted Mr. Aguilar and apologized, claiming that there was a "misunderstanding." Yea right.

I visited Mr Aguilar when I needed to draft a Sales Person Agreement. As a Real Estate Broker, it was very important to have a contract that would be comprehensive and address all the issues that i had. Mr. Aguilar asked questions and was very helpful in the process. I HIGHLY recomend his services to anyone looking for similar services.

Moises Aguilar is a great lawyer but an even better person. He really understands where you're coming from and delivers in any possible way. My experience with couldn't of gone any better than it did. He surpassed my expectations and then some. I would definately say he seperates himself from all lawyers and i would recommmend him to my friends and family because he's there to help and guide you through the process.

I was very pleased with the service that the offices of Aguilar and Sonnonstine provided to our family. My parents do not speak English and they felt very comfortable dealing with an attorney and staff that spoke with them in Spanish. They were very courteous and got us through our difficult situation. I highly recommend this firm for loan modifications or any other services.

Moises is great lawyer with a great future ahead of him. His professionalism surpasses alot of competitors. I really enjoyed working with him that I'v already started referring friends and family. After working with him dont think i can work with another lawyer. He exceeds expectations and always delivers.
