I have known this man for many of years through advocacy and as of recently he was my DUI lawyer. He is thoughtful, attentive and willing to fight. I will gladly refer as many as I can to him moving forward.

I have contacted Mr. Ybarra Maldonado to consult regarding my clients who required an immigration attorney. He has always been helpful and extremely knowledgeable on all immigration and criminal matters. I would highly recommend Mr. Ybarra Maldonado for all of your immigration and/or criminal cases.

This case lasted 8 months. The state kept asking for delays. Mr Maldonado was always well prepared, organized,well versed and professional. Even though we met with the judge on many occasions, even though it was for a brief time, Mr. Maldonado was always present. He never missed a scheduled court meeting. I met at Mr. Maldonado's office on many occasions. My wife and I were always well received and he was always prepared. He always exhibited interest, concern and kept me abreast of my case.
This was a pro bono case and Mr. Maldonado remained professional and worked deligently throughout.

Ray Maldonado is the premier criminal defense and immigration attorney in Phoenix, AZ. If my relative were in the criminal justice system and facing immigration consequences, Ray would be the attorney I'd refer them to. He's not only an outstanding lawyer but he is also an advocate in the community. Ray believes in what he does and it comes across in his work product, I'm honored to call him a peer and pleased to make this endorsement.
