I've hired Mr.Retana twice in the past. He's respected in the courtroom, he has always made sure that i understand what is going on, he's recommended steps that i should take to possibly better the outcome, & i could tell without a doubt he'd taken the time to fully familurize his-self with my case. i already had 1 strike, & was facing 2 more and a sentence of 25 to life. when everything was said and done i still only had my previous strike 10 months in custody with 3 years joint suspended probation.
