This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Very responsive, professional, delightful to work with
We hired Ms Legaretta when our son was charged with multiple non-violent felonies, and looking at a sentence of 25 years. Immediately after hiring her, she did the research, formulated a plan, communicated that plan to us, and then went to work. As with all worried parents, we had questions every day. She encouraged us to text or call as often as we had questions. And she responded with minutes or hours everytime. She was always straight forward, even when the information wasn't what we wanted to hear. She coordinated and collaborated with the prosecutor multiple times, and was able to get a much lesser sentence. Her rates were very affordable, and accepted a payment plan. She made the legal process as easy as possible. She always fully explained the process which helped us understand. We definitely recommend her if you are in need of a criminal lawyer.

Thorough, patient and respectful
Veronica Legarreta is the reason I have my son with me today. He could have been sent to jail for a prank that resulted in a misdemeanor.

Great attorney!
Ms. Veronica was my criminal attorney for a DWI I had and she was wonderful! I was so nervous since it was my first time in trouble and didn't know what to expect. Ms. Veronica walked me through everything. She got me a license to drive and got my case dismissed.
