10 star worthy attorney!
Wish I could give 10 stars! Edwin Molina was able to achieve the best possible scenario for me on two separate occasions. He made things easy and eased my anxiety with his prompt and thourough communication throughout the entirety of both situations. In a time where stress was very high, I felt very secure and confident knowing I had him on my side. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking legal assistance. Thanks again Edwin!

Client
Edwin really bent over backwards to ensure I received the best possible outcome with my case. He was always available when I needed him, and his response time was often no more than an hour. Edwin is diligent and clearly well versed in what he does. I would definitely recommend him to anyone! Thanks again Edwin

Thank you, Atty. Molina for helping me out with my situation, especially for taking me on as a client. When I first met with you my life was so out of character and because of you and your team was very professional and kind, you did an incredible job to defend my case. Knowing you and your team has been a blessing for me. I very much appreciate all you've done for me.

Forever in Debt to you
Molina worked hard on my case for a couple of months and finally got dismissed! Not only was he on top of my case, but he also communicated with me through the process, explained to me all the steps so I always knew his plan and where the case was heading. I had a hard time for a couple of mos., but I trusted him; he fights for me until the end. I could tell that he really cared for me personally about me. I'll be grateful that I have him as my lawyer and I'm forever thankful with all his hard work and efforts.

Thank you, Attorney Molina - your professionalism brings me success in my case
I want to thank Atty. Molina for helping me bring my case to a favorable outcome. Your meticulous attention to detail helped me to clear my name and not have to carry the burden of one poor choice. I know that without the effort you put into my case, the outcome may have been very different. Thank you for your hard work and professionalism, Atty. Molina, I owe you a big one.

He's professional, knows what he is doing and it shows. When it comes to communication I never had any issues, he'd reached out to me and never had trouble getting in touch with him. I felt at ease the whole process. I'd recommend him in the future.

I have never met a person like Molina that was very dedicated and committed to helping people like me struggling with such a hard case to fight. I have never been in trouble in my entire life and didn't even realize what I did was a crime. He really did his best to win and settle my case until the end. - didn't leave me hanging. Thank you so much, Atty. Molina for all the help you did for me to win the case they throw against me.

From the Start
If you're reading this, you're most likely in a situation you would rather not be in. There are myriad of words I could use to describe Ed Molina's work ethic and tenacity so I'll use a phrase some might be familiar with, "I wanted it done yesterday", because that's exactly how I felt he operated. I was luckily referred to Edward through another lawyer who was also referred to me. Right now, after contacting Ed, you're going to say to yourself, "I should have done this from the start." Thank you Molina Law Group, Especially Ed, for representing me.

I am very happy that I was referred Ed Molina. After our first meeting I could tell this young brotha had his stuff together and knew what he was doing. Well after months of stress and prayer , I was happy to get the news that I’ll be spending Christmas with my family instead of doing 4 months in jail. This man is a miracle worker and worth every red penny. God bless you young blood.

Dismissed my case
I had Ed as my lawyer a couple of years back and I am still grateful for what he did. I got pulled over in a rental car and cops found a gun in the backseat and tried to pin it on me. Ed hunted down all the witnesses from that night, including a passenger that admitted the gun was his. Next thing I know is my 5 year plea deal was gone and so was my case. Thank you!

Beat my DUI
I was charged for a felony DUI when I was in the passenger seat and my then girlfriend jumped into the backseat when the cops pulled us over. Mr. Molina took my case to trial, exposed the cop for his horrible investigation, and the jury came back not guilty. I was facing a lot of time because of my past, but I am happy that the I had Mr. Molina to keep that from happening.

So far so go. I appreciate the quick response and the legal advise I received. After speaking to Edwin, I feel confident in my decision making.

Lawyer to Lawyer
I had the pleasure of working with Edwin when he began his career at the Yuma County Legal Defender's Office. When Ed began, I had been working as a defense attorney for approximately 4 years. My colleagues and I were immediately impressed with Ed's ability to quickly understand and spot complex legal issues, and to communicate them to others. In conjunction with that, Ed also has the skill necessary to sort through various issues presented to determine which are the primary issues, and which may be dead ends. Ed has incredible research skills and ability. He is not afraid to challenge the norms and ideas of the system, particularly when it means getting the best outcomes for his clients. I've seen Ed navigate difficult situations, with the Court, opposing counsel, and clients; he did so with ease. Not only is Ed a great lawyer, but he is also a kind and pleasant person.
