| Hired Attorney
Grand Jury No Bill Win
I wanted to take a moment and tell you about the professionalism of the Richard Carrizales Law Firm. Richard took time with me to hear my Grand Jury indictment. Mr. Carrizales explained the step by step process for my trial and had a very tough and valid game plan before I left his office on the first visit. He properly advised me and consulted with me at any time I had questions or concerns. His knowledge of the law and professional expertise with the court procedure gave me the confidence and security that I was in good hands. Richard is a great attorney and is highly respected by his peers at the courthouse. His confidence on my case was a win/win for myself but also his professional law firm. This is the lawyer you want on your side. This is the lawyer you want working for you. Well done Mr. Carrizales
