Criminal defense Attorney | Apr 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I fully endorse this lawyer. Attorney Gonzalez is the most knowledgeable criminal attorney I know. I would trust him with any criminal case whether it be a friend, family, or even myself needing help. He is extremely charismatic but stern when necessary. I recall being in the Harris County Criminal Courts handling a situation for the first time, he happened to be passing by and offered his assistance. His advice in the criminal realm is golden."
