Criminal Attorney
Was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor. I have used Elizabeth two times before, both cases were dismissed. She happened to be out of the country when this latest unfortunate event occurred, but she still managed to call me and she will be representing again. Call me unlucky, or maybe just in the wrong place at the wrong time, or maybe I just need to move away from my crazy neighbor. Elizabeth is an aggressive criminal attorney that can control a court room with ease.

Excellent attention to detail with solved my problems w/ DPS
I had some issues with DPS showing incorrect information in their system which was preventing me from obtaining a firearm and from getting my passport reinstated. Elizabeth review the files and submitted a very detailed and thorough appeal to DPS which made them revise my records and clear up my history. If you want someone that know her business and pay attention to detail, hire Elizabeth.

Very Professional! Excellent Results
We had the very positive experience of working with Elizabeth to defend our son's case. She was excellent at representing our son and providing us with concrete suggestions along the way. Our biggest mistake was not engaging Elizabeth earlier to get guidance from the start. Elizabeth's strategy and guidance was able to greatly improve the outcome.

Excellent lawyer
I had recent experience using the services from Law Offices of David Michael Cantor. The attorney that handled the case was Elizabeth Mullins. She was excellent at representing our son and defending his case. Our biggest mistake was not engaging Elizabeth earlier to get guidance from the start. Elizabeth was able to turn an almost certain 5 years or more sentence to just some months. The procedures and process that Law Offices of David Michael Cantor were very helpful in reducing the sentence. Yes, there was a financial cost to using Law Offices of David Michael Cantor. However, Elizabeth's excellent work saved YEARS from the outcome. How do you value 5 or 10 years of a loved one's life?

If you want the Best Then Hire Elizabeth
I have hired the Cantor Law firm 2 twice due to a set of crazy neighbors that are trying their best to get me arrested and ultimately to move. I was arrested for violation of a harassment injunction and hired Cantor to defend me in that case and the following year I hired them to help me fight a harassment injucntion filed by another neighbor. In both cases i received a directed verdict. Go search for directed verdict and see how rare they are to obtain. Elizabeth Mullins was the Attorney whom represented me in both of these cases and let me tell you she is the best of the best. Her pre trial perperation is unblievable. She puts together a defense in a very methodical way and then gathers the necessary evidence to support it. Her courtroom presence is something you have to witness to believe. She is self assured, commanding but not arrogant, and has a very quick mind that allows her to react to the unavoidable surpises that do arise. Her knowedge of the law is deep and broad and she uses it to control the flow of the court room proceedings. You ever watch an athelete at the top of their game it is like watching artwork in motion. Well that is the way i describe Elizabeth Mullins in the court room. I have tried this same process with lesser atorneys and have failed so believe me when I tell you the results are tied directly to the attroney represnting not the situation and the facts. The year prior the same neighor filed an IAH against me and I didnt want to spend the money to hire Cantor even though Elizabeth had just worked with me to get a directed verdict dissmisal in the violation of the IAH case..So i went and hired another attorney we went to court and this neighbor argued basically the same case(that Elizabeth Mullins just helped me win) and won. One year later we are back in court but this time with Elizabeth Mullins and now he has compiled even more false allegations which is going to make it even harder to defend against his claims but Elizabeth Mullins was able to wade thru the bullshit so that the jugde could see that there wasnt harrassmment just a neighbor that doesnt like a another neighbor. Same situation and issues but with differnt attorneys and vastly different results. This time I win. If your thinking whats the big deal about an iah then you have never had one filed agaisnt you by a vindictive person that will use it in attempt to have you arrested for pretty much anything. They make your life hell. So needless to say I wanted this IAH removed and i needed the a good attorney to help me get it done. I will say it again if you want the best representation that you can find hire Cantor and talk to Elizabeth Mullins. You will not be disappointed. I hope i never need another criminal attorney but if do i am going right back to Cantor and asking for Elizabeth Mullins.

Rusults driven knowledgeable DUI attorney
Elizabeth did an excellent job for my son. He was scared and unsure of the ramifications and impending results. She was extremely knowledgeable of our case and how to best proceed. She was able to detail every step of the process and explain in layman terms what every step was, the alternatives and expected results for each scenario. Her service to us invaluable. Her guidance through a difficult DUI process calmed our nerves and gave us great confidence in a positive outcome. This resulted in the DUI being thrown out and settling for a misdemeanor traffic violation. Her job was thorough and greatly appreciated. We would strongly recommend her to anyone needing a strong and knowledgeable DUI attorney.

Remarkable Service
When I was arrested for domestic violence and disturbing the peace I knew my only hope was to hire an attorney. I was nervous when I first approached the law firm of David Cantor because let's face it....we have all heard the stories of lawyers being void of scruples. I met with Elizabeth Mullins and explained my story. Elizabeth was extremely polite and courteous while she listened to how the events of that night unfolded. She took extensive notes and made sure every detail leading up to my arrest had been covered. When I completed my story Elizabeth smiled and put down her pen. Suddenly this sweet, courteous and polite person turned into a crusader against injustice and became angry at how laws set-up to protect people are being misused. I knew at that instance I had a pit-bull in my corner and everything was going to be alright. Elizabeth knew the prosecutor that was assigned to my case which was also impressive (always know your opponent). She knew exactly what he was going to do before he did it. Throughout my case there was never any surprises because during our initial meeting Elizabeth was able to break down every detail, what the prosecutor would offer as a plea agreement and what the end result would be. I also need to mention that Elizabeth did not receive full cooperation from the arresting officers or the prosecution. For starters, officers would fail to appear at their deposition and the prosecution ignored requests for witnesses contact information. I thought for sure the extra expenses for filing motions, time spent trying to get depositions and other obstacles encountered would be brought up at some point. You know, those well hidden costs buried in your contract that seemingly rise up out of no where. However, it was never even mentioned because it was all part of doing business! That is when I realized this law firm is committed and focused on the pursuit of justice. Just as Elizabeth predicted in our first meeting, the charges filed against me were eventually dismissed. If I did not have one of the best attorney's in my corner there is no doubt in my mind the outcome would have been completely different. I cannot thank Elizabeth Mullins and the law firm of David Cantor enough for everything she has done for me and my family and will definitely recommend them to anyone needing help!

Review for Elizabeth Mullins by recent client
My experience with all of the people I dealt with at the Law Offices of David Michael Cantor has been exceptionally positive and outstanding! I am so impressed with Elizabeth Mullins, the attorney I hired to represent a friend of mine who was facing criminal charges, as she was amazing! Her expertise and dedication as well as presentation during the court hearing was absolutely top notch! I am extremely impressed and appreciative of her very professional and knowledgable work. She was worth every penny I paid for her services and would not hesitate to call the Law Offices of David Michael Cantor again and I would request that Ms. Mullins be the attorney assigned to any future case.

Express gratitude
Elizabeth Mullins, We the Martinez family would like to take this opportunity to express our extreme gratitude and appreciation for all your hard work and persistent effort and determination in pursuing an optimistic outcome in our son/brother's legal matter. It was one of the hardest and most emotional situations we have encountered, and we felt throughout the process you went over and beyond the call of duty to resolve the matter as quickly and as possible. Your support and assurance helped us tremendously in coping with the process, yet you were always truthful and forthright. Your patience and professionalism were inspiring, however your sincere caring and concern was what really set you apart form most attorneys. Overall, you are sincerely remarkable and we will be forever grateful to you.

Elizabeth is a rock star!
A number of months ago, I walked into their offices and told them that I had been accused of a crime I did not commit and the attorney I previously hired told me to "get use to the idea of incarceration". After speaking to Dave for about an hour he took my case and promised to represent me to the best of the firms ability. Needless to say, I was terrified of the process. I had never been in trouble before and I could not begin to understand the allegation being made by my wife (the accuser). I need honesty and someone to methodically take me through what I was experiencing. Dave assigned Elizabeth Mullins and I found her to be exactly what i needed at the time. She was honest (at times did not spare my feelings), driven and methodical. She did her homework; which was not done by the police or the previous attorney. When we got to court she was spot on and because of her skill I was exonerated Elizabeth is a rock star! I am not exaggerating when I tell you she saved my life. The company I work for is very conservative and this could of cost me job and everything I have worked for over the last 25 years. As it was, I lost my wife, my house and emotional well being. But, I have my freedom and I have been exonerated. I cannot begin to tell you how much i appreciate everything your firm for me. I pray I never end up again needing a criminal attorney. If I do, the Cantor offices is my only stop.

Hit and Run Charge
Last December, backing out of a parking spot, at night, I bumped, what I thought was a curb. Apparently I had hit another car and someone wrote down my plate #. The next day, police came to my house and charged me with hit and run as well as failure to notify. I contacted Cantor Law through a google search. Elizabeth handled my case very agressivly, and after 6 months, a plea was reached. Instead of 2 criminal charges, that could have put me in jail, and/or loss of license for one year, I was charged with a civil speeding penalty, paid a fine, and have 3 points on my license. No criminal charges. It was a pleasure to work with Cantor Law and Elizabeth.

Aggressive defense
I was pulled towards the end of the year for making a right turn into the 2nd availalbe lane (something every American does during daylight hours) instead of the 1st lane. My friend was in car at the time and called the law office of David Cantor immediately. Someone was available at 11:30 pm to give me free advice over the phone. A few days later, I was contacted by one of their lawyers; he immediately put my mind at ease about my options; a possible DUI is extremely stressful . I made an appointment to meet with the firm to go over the incident and decide if I wanted to retain their services. Again, the lawyer I spoke with eased my worries with his explanation of the law firm's experience and expertise handling DUI's. So I decided to hire them. As I mentioned before, I was pulled over for making a right turn everyone makes during the day (over the past two weeks I've even seen cop cars make a right turn directly into the second lane of traffic). I bring this up because I believe that I shouldn't have been stopped in the first place. I was pulled over based on an arbitrary law that is hardly enforced, and actually broken by the institution tasked with enforcing this law on a daily basis. But, I found out in a court of law it doesn't matter what you believe. In my case, the law was about procedure. And this is where the Law offices of David Cantor excel. I was assigned to Elizabeth, great lawyer, and she had a team of paralegal's and other attorneys helping out. They explored every procedural avenue in trying to win my case. And while I got impatient with the amount of court appearances, I realized these court dates, and the procedures that must be followed, open up many opportunities for the Prosecutors to screw up. It doesn't matter that I believe I shouldn't have been pulled over in the first place; the expertise and aggressiveness of my attorney in using procedural law to my advantage was second to none. My last court date related to a motion to suppress. Elizabeth argued that the DA's office did not supply correct and timely evidence. On a side note, after listening to my lawyer's oral argument I now understand what they mean by an "aggressive defense". It reminded me of scenes right out of NBC's LA Law. The motion to suppress was successful. And without that evidence there was no case, so my case was dismissed. I was not expecting a dismissal, and wasn't promised one, but I can't complain. I was expecting aggressive, knowledgeable attorneys. And while I can't compare this experience with one in the past, if you are looking for a firm that: 1. Puts your mind at ease from your initial consulation 2. Are experts in DUI/DWI cases and 3. Will aggressively explore every option then I would recommend this law group to everyone.

very inconsiderate lawyer
very hard getting in touch with her. When I went to court she had another lawyer fill in for her and he had no clue what my case was about to the point of telling the judge wrong information. when I needed Elizabeth's help because I was summoned to go back to court she wouldn't return my email. I would never return to her again. be careful on this one..

Response from Elizabeth Mullins July 19, 2014
All calls and emails are responded to within 24 hours. Unfortunately, if someone fails to comply with court orders, that individual will frequently be required to return to court. A phone call to the attorney can easily remedy these situations.
