Review Brian Chavez-Ochoa

    One of the best criminal defense lawyers I've worked with

    I have tried several cases and appeals with Brian as co-counsel or lead counsel. He is skilled as a courtroom attorney, extremely knowledgeable about procedure and able to apply it in practice without hesitation. He is excellent at examination of law enforcement officials to demonstrate gaps or even wrongdoing in their procedure.

    I would work with him again anytime.

    Talk the talk but ot walk the walk

    Doesn't know how to object to anything in trial. Takes all you money and then when you need to file something you know you can file he refuses ,says you can't do that ,then it is to late. He drops you at the end when you can't afford anymore money. Then you are left representing yourself. It was a waste of time and money and left us in a situation where we realized we chose the wrong attorney.

    Looking for a vigorous champion of your case? Keep looking.

    I hired this attorney to handle an appeal. He did not appear to do any research before the trial. He arrived at trial without having prepared a brief, nor did it appear that he had even researched the case. He was so befuddled during the trial that the judge and plaintiff both laughed at him. The other side presented untrue information and this attorney did not object to anything. He did not meet with me before the trial to review what might happen or how to respond. I would not recommend him for anything. He is a nice guy but he was of no help for my cause. It almost appeared that he was on the other side.

    Waste of money and time...

    this guy can never be got a hold of. he charged excessively for stupid things, such as i wrote him a declaration. his assistant failed to get the information right. i told her this. she wrote it again, and charged me for her mistakes. he didn't keep me informed of what he was actually filing, therefore making my future worse he didn't inform me or consult me with anything.

    Principal

    This firm failed to respond to repeated email, or telephone inquiries. The only way to speak to the attorney was to "catch" him in the office.

    The most aggressive task they completed was asking for more money to replenish the retainer.
    They showed up late to court, did not keep me informed and generally were lax in the pursuit of a good outcome for my case.

    I finally gave up and sought other counsel.

    They talk and promise results....be forewarned...it's an act. Once you have signed a client agreement ...you will be toast.
