Ms. Cavazos represented my son from May 2010- Nov 2010. This was a very stressful and difficult time for our family. Our son has never been in trouble yet alone done nothing bad. So when we were told what he was being accused of, it blew us all away. I knew my son would never do what they were accusing him of. We were all torn apart, especially my son. It was so hard to enroll him in an alternative school, I was crying so bad, the counslor had to calm me down. He was so unhappy and depressed and I hated to see him like that. Ms. Cavazos was referred to us by a family friend. When we went to meet with her it was like God had sent us an angel, she was so respectful and caring. She sat there so professional and reassured my son that everything was going to be okay, and for him to keep his head held high. I could tell she was going to do all she could do to prove my son innocent. She would either call us or email me to give me updates. She would even call when she was out of town, no matter what question I had she always got back to me with an answer. It took six months, it felt longer, however Ms. Cavazos came through and proved my son innocent. I thank god for bringing her to us everyday, she is a wonderful person, we were truely blessed to have her represent our son. Thank you Ms. Cavazos!

Ms. Cavazos is a very experienced and dedicated attorney that will
focus on the immediacy of her client’s issues. The outcome of her
client’s cases is her number one priority. She is very determined and
will always be proactive towards her cases. She is punctual and
sympathetic. Her work ethic is great; she has a clear understanding of
the state of urgency of her clients. Her communication skills are
very astute and her bilingual capabilities increase her tenacity. Her
office customer service is fantastic, and her retainer fees are very
fair. Having seen Ms. Cavazos work in the court room I can say that
she is very smart and fierce. I would definitely want her
representing me or my family.

Ms. Cavazos represented my juvenile daughter in 2010 and I will never be able to thank her to the extent she deserves. The judicial process that my daughter was involved in was played out over 18 months, but In every crisis that came along, Ms. Cavazos was totally ahead of the curve. At the detention center, she was able to access my daughter and reassure her, even when I wasn't able to. By the time it got to court, she had excellent relationships with everybody involved, including the clerks, baliffs, district attorneys and the judges.
During this whole process, Ms. Cavazos had an optimistic, confident and professional manner. She communicated in a way that showed respect and concern for my daughter and when it was all over, Ms. Cavazos brought us closer together. She had the right perspective, and never let us forget that it was an unfortunate thing that happened, but that we would get through it and learn and grow from it. Ms. Cavazos truly cared for my daughter, and she continued to inquire about her even after her case was resolved.
As for the cost, she was very reasonable, even honest! I would definitely recommend her.
