Practice area

The legal system is not what it seems on television. Television would have you believe that only guilty people get arrested, charged and convicted, but that is simply not true. The legal system casts a wide net and it is up to a top notch defense attorney to get the innocent people out of that net. When I was younger, my father instilled in me many lessons, but one has stuck with me for decades. "Do for others who cannot do for themselves." To some people this means giving money, donating clothes or food, etc. For me, this means helping people who've been caught up in this legal net and cannot get out on their own. That is why I am a lawyer, and that's the attitude I bring to the office every day.

Case Rejected
I just wanted to take the time to give my appreciation to Jon Perez for all the hard work he put into my case. Like seriously going through what I went through was just a burden on me and my family. Jon assured me since day one what the outcome was going to be. I can vouch and say this is a man who takes pride in his work. Definitely a man of his word. I would recommend him to anybody if you want a good lawyer on your side. I appreciate everything you did brother for me. You shed light on me and now I can get back to being happy with my life . Thank you so much. The best Jon Perez

Case Dismissed
John Pérez is a great attorney that gets you results. I was accused of domestic violence picked up on a warrant that I had no knowledge of. I hired John Pérez to represrnt me. John was straght forward with me during our meeting, he stated what the game plan would be and he executed the play perfectly. He was able to get this case dismissed for me and now I can breathe knowing such a big weight is lifted off my chest. Also knowing that I am not labeled in the criminal system as something that I'm not. I'm thankful for a hard working attorney like John Pérez and his staff as well. John thank you so much your a blessing glad I came across you my friend. Keep up the great work you do. I will be recommending you to anybody that ask for a great lawyer. Thanks again! J.Bayardo

Due to unfortunate events, beyond my control I was freaking out! John was quick to meet with me, he explained the game plan and was there to calm me down every step of the way! From the beginning he was upfront and honest with me, he will not BS you. When I was uncertain, scared and lost John reassured me that our game plan is in motion and that he is my attorney and that WE would be okay. I am very blessed to have selected such a great attorney! I highly recommend John, not only is he our new family attorney, but he is also our newest family member!

DWI Dismissal
I am completely satisfied with the results. Despite the length of time, through no fault of the firm or Attorney Perez, we were able to get the result we wanted. Throughout the process, I received clear and concise communication, and was able to understand what to expect moving forward with court proceedings. Glad I had the opportunity to work with this firm and highly recommend anyone to give them a call. 5 out of 5.

I couldn’t have asked for someone better
When I had gotten into a bit of trouble, he was recommended to me and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to take my case! He did a fantastic job walking me through all the steps and what to do and what to expect.

He’s the man for the job!
I found John when a family member got into some trouble. He was quick to respond and was great at walking you through the process. He acquired a very favorable outcome and was great to work with! I highly recommend him if you ever need help.

Great Attorney!
Nobody ever wants to need a lawyer. But if you do need one, you want a good one. John walked me through everything , traveled over 200 miles to represent me, was available when I needed advice, made sure I understood my rights, and more importantly....protected them. We dont always make good choices, but not hiring John is just straight stupid.

against all odds
I was referred to John after getting myself in a considerable amount of trouble, and at a point in which I was considering throwing in the towel. One phone call with John changed my outlook completely as he explained what he would attempt to do for me, and why. It wasn’t exclusively for the money I’d pay, I could tell he had a vested interest in helping me repair my life. After retaining him, that attitude and interest didn’t disappear as is often the case. He worked tirelessly on my behalf, refused to settle for less than he had promised me he would try for, and ultimately (after countless road blocks) delivered on his word and got me an unbelievable and improbable plea. I can’t recommend him highly enough and am truly grateful to have found him after paying thousands and thousands of dollars to another high profile attorney to go through the motions and who I doubt even remembers my name.

I hired Mr. John Perez as my attorney after being recommended by a close family friend. This was my first offense, ever, and I was legitimately scared. My first consult with Mr. Perez was nearly over 2 hours long! He was very professional, honest, and sincere right off the bat. I told him exactly what I needed (a dismissal) and he was confident that he could get me just that. I felt very confident and comfortable meeting Mr. Perez and trusted him from the get go. He was very genuine and honest compared to the other attorneys I had met with, and they also did not dedicate even half the time Mr. Perez during our initial consult. Mr. Perez was very professional and helped me feel better about the whole situation. I told him I was applying to medical school soon and I needed this off my record and I felt he really went out of his way to see me succeed and pursue my dreams. Now, several months later, during just our second hearing ... Mr. Perez did exactly what he promised he would do and got my case dismissed. Just like that! I’m still crying tears of joy! I did not expect this so SOON. This is perfect timing for me and I could not have asked for a better turn out! I remember making him aware of my deadlines and applications for school a few months ago, and I really felt like Mr. Perez did everything possible to make this workout for me - sooner rather than later. Every time I called Mr. Perez he always responded in a very timely manner and answered all of my questions. Before the dismissal, he was very open about EVERY SINGLE possible route for me and the charge at hand, and all the possible ways this case can close, how it would appear on my record now and later, and any additional steps we could take from then on. He asked me how I felt about all the other options and we were able to decide what would be best for me, and what wouldn’t. Mr. Perez was very confident in our plans for dismissal and my goals, which always made me feel better. I was not in the wrong in this case and I know he believed me. He explained everything very well for me, in “layman’s terms” as we say in the medical field which I appreciated very much. I’m sure anyone feels very intimidated when speaking to their attorney and the language and terms they may use, but Mr. Perez always made me feel very comfortable during our conversations and always explained every term I was not familiar with. I was so grateful that he was always very up front with my case, letting me know where we were and what we needed next. He was always two steps ahead. I felt very confident to have him as my attorney, and I knew he would help me with anything that I needed. Even now that my case is dismissed he let me know he’s only a phone call away which really makes me happy. I don’t wish anyone to be in the shoes that I was in earlier this year... but if you ever are I HIGHLY recommend Mr. John Perez!!! His dismissal rate is REAL and I got to witness it first hand! Mr. Perez is GREAT at what he does, and he is a genuine man. I know he will be happy for me when I start medical school. And thanks to Mr. Perez, it will all be possible :)
