For starters, I am a military officer and I got myself into a bit of trouble back in 2015 - I was charged with DUI, Assault by Auto, Leaving the Scene, Open Container, and 10 additional charges across two municipalities. Mr. Raya and his legal team is second to none. My attorney (who I will not name) at the time consolidated the offenses, however failed to stop an indictment by a Grand Jury and the matters were sent to Superior Court. The same attorney failed to inform the Courts that I was to be on Military Orders and I subsequently missed the Arraignment. Upon returning from Active Duty Orders, I was arrested and spent a night in jail. When I showed up to the Court date in Municipal Court, I was greeted with the knowledge that my charges had been sent to Superior Court. Upon recognizing these failures, I did not know what to do. Fortunately, a friend referred me to Mr. Raya. I was skeptical at first, and given how everything was a mess I knew something needed to be done. I decided to reach out and after meeting with Ray and explaining my rapidly deteriorating situation, chose to retain his counsel, and released the previous attorney. Results were almost immediate. Ray and his team worked tirelessly, and within 9 months the most serious charges had been taken care of and the traffic violations were remanded back to Municipal Court, and not even 6 months the remaining serious charges were dropped, including the DUI. I have dozens of friends; former professors and former classmates who are attorneys who practice all fields of Law, and bar none, Ray is the best trial lawyer I have ever met. He is personable, and not only is he an expert in his advertised practice, he hires the right people. Tara is quick to respond, attentive, and up to speed on each client. Tara has been able to answer any question I had in regard to my case. The level of professionalism, genuine care to clients, and competence is world class. I would not hesitate to retain Ray should there ever be a need again. He also communicates through email, calls, or text, 24/7, which is very convenient.

A friend had recommended Ray Raya to help me, since he had helped her for DUI case. Yes, Ray is a nice guy and very knowledgeable . I hired him to defend me against a CDS case. It was embarrassing, he did not come to court the first time, so I looked like an idiot. When he came to the court the second time, I lost the case. For what Ray charged me, was just wrong and overpriced.

Had to wait to write this review since Ray handled a few cases for our son. He has used Ray previously with always good results. I found the more difficult the case, the better Ray performed and the better results for his client. Ray has a bag of tricks up his sleeves which he's not afraid to use. I have never seen a lawyer that cares so much about his client. When you hire Ray, you get Ray, not some flunky they send in place of. Highly recommend 100%.

I handled matters with Mr. Raya while I was an Assistant Prosecutor, and have seen him at work in my new capacity as a defense attorney. I am always impressed with his knowledge, and his passion for each individual client.
