Suburban courtrooms, hard judges, and one savvy attorney
I've had bad luck with attorneys in the past. I was skeptical about who to hire and used "consideration of detail to my case" and "price" as a search filter. After discussions with multiple attorneys, one stood out to be empathetic, knowledgeable, and affordable. Thus, I hired him. Mr. Davalos was able to get my charge reduced in a suburban courtroom with a judge that was known to be harsh and now I'm on my way to moving on with life ahead of schedule thanks to my attorney. Thank you for your diligence again. Will definitely rehire and recommend this Lawyer.

Traffic Tickets
I had a traffic case with many tickets that would have made my car insurance more expensive. Attorney Carlos Davalos was able to get them all dismissed. I will be calling again if I need it.

Very unprofessional. Not aggressive in court
I felt Mr. Davalos is only here for the sole purpose to collect a fee and get done with your case as soon as possible, without even trying to get the best outcome for you. When I tried to ask questions, he seemed to be very annoyed and just kept trying to blow me off. He was very unhelpful when it came to answering my questions and didn't follow up with me at all. He expected me to be familiar with court and the criminal system world, which is obviously ridiculous. He did manage to prevent the case from going in my record but I feel he could of done much more. I took his services only because I had court soon and his fee was cheap. So I guess you get what you pay for.
