    • I recommend Laura Guzman.
    • I hired Laura 1-3 years ago.
    • Laura handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I would Highly recommend Laura! She was an absolute pleasure to work with from the very start!!!
    I was nervous, scared and had never imagined myself in this type of situation. She always took the time to explain everything to me and was a library of information. She explained exactly the type of circumstances I was in, gave me all of my options, and all of my worst and best case scenarios.
    I needed someone to see passed my current situation and see me for me, the life I had built, the future I was planning . She did. I also needed someone to fight for me because I knew I should have never been put in this situation. She did.
    I feel she led me down the best path for me and my overall well being. And in the end, she did! I feel she gave me my life back!!!

    • Laura handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    When I met Chuck and Laura I was without hope and felt desperate, our family had been fighting corrupt law enforcement, a trial that was filled with perjury, ignored subpoenas, and witnesses intimidated by the sheriff’s department. Chuck and Laura listened to our concerns and immediately started research on our case. The judge and prosecutor continued trying to bully us to fulfill their agenda, Chuck and Laura will not back down. I feel like God brought us together, I know that we still have a long road ahead, I am confident that they will do everything to help us. Chuck and Laura not only cared about our case, they cared about us as a family, our health, our spiritual well-being. They have worked tirelessly to defend our son. In my opinion Chuck and Laura treat the U. S. Constitution as a living, breathing organism, not just words on a paper that sit in a museum. I would recommend Chuck Magill or Laura Guzman Magill to anyone that wants to be represented, not just have some show up in court.

    • I recommend Laura Guzman.
    • I hired Laura 1-3 years ago.
    • Laura handled my Domestic Violence matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Charles and Laura Magill already did succesfully represent me in the past, so when false criminal charges in a Domestic Violence case were filed against me I did not hesitate for a second to have them represent me again.

    Charles and Laura are highly skilled professional attorneys who are very experienced, have a broad an in-depth knowledge of the law, know the Court System in and out and are great negotiators. But even more important they are WINNERS, who will never give up no matter how hopeless a case might look and will keep seeking for every possible solution to win their case.

    In Domestic Violence cases, like the one that I had to deal with, winning a case is in most situations a hard thing to achieve. Especially while, like also in my case, it is one word (my ex spouse) against another (mine) and proofing the facts is a difficult thing to achieve. Moreover when a 12 member jury has to be convinced of your innocence.

    But also here Charles and Laura kept looking to every possible angle of my case, striving in every possible way to get a not guilty verdict from the jury.

    And that is what happened in the end, having my case being aquitted. I have no idea what the end-result of my case would have been without Charles and Laura representing me. But I know for a fact that without their persistence, their professional attitude and the time and energy they put in defending me, things could have ended much worse for me.

    If ever you might end up in a similar situation like I did and need a criminal defense attorney, I would definitely recommend Charles and Laura Magill as the attorneys that highly likely will win a case for you.

    • Laura handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Courage can be defined as doing the right thing, despite the threat of adversity. Keep doing the right thing Laura (and Chuck). My family and I were extremely fortunate to have Laura and Chuck Magill represent our son, only after others wanted to and let "the other side" drive the case.

    Overzealous prosecutors and badge heavy law enforcement will not hesitate to fabricate charges, trample on your Constitutional Rights, and make self-serving, back room deals. Our system of justice needs attorneys like Laura and Chuck as a safeguard of checks and balance. Laura and Chuck "defend" their clients the way a defense attorney should, and they hold those empowered to enforce, prosecute and hear the law accountable. It is a fact, based on experience and observation, Laura and Chuck are true, loyal defenders of "the people" and your Rights. I only wish more attorneys had their honesty, backbone, compassion, energy, drive and knowledge of the law. Keep up the great work!!

    • I recommend Laura Guzman.
    • Laura handled my Education matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Laura and Charles Magill are two of the few attorneys I refer families to in California for the following reasons:
    1) They are honest and operate with integrity. This means that they will enter into truthful and straightforward dialogue about the merits of a case we discuss and their availability.
    2) They are specialized. They have specific experience in areas of ed law and criminal defense law that is rare in California.
    3) They do not pose a conflict of interest. They represent families, not school districts.
    4) They are fighters and not easily discouraged.
    5 ) And last, but not least, they are kind and compassionate.

    We belong to the same legal network association. We have yet to meet in person, however, we communicate via phone and internet regularly. During the past several months I've dealt with certain health challenges that require legal assistance, referrals and at time financial support. Laura and her Law Office have graciously supported me when asked without question and without really knowing me personally just out of the kindness and generosity of her heart. It's an extension of God's grace and love that I've rarely if ever encountered and i'm so grateful.
