Rich did an exceptional job in representing my friend. He promptly returned our phone calls and accomplished all of the work he said he would do. In the end, the case was resolved beyond our expectations. Thank you Rich Gaxiola.

After getting charged with a case and talking with several attorneys, I was honestly discouraged and hopeless about my circumstances. I was then referred to Richard Gaxiola from a co-employee of mine.
I called his number and he actually answered the phone. After consulting with him, I did not feel that I needed to go through this alone. He was thoroughly professional and obtained a realistic result that he projected he could. Thank you Richard for all your help. I definitely would recommend him to anyone for help.

Richard always told me the truth up front. No matter whether it was good or bad he never sugar coated anything. He fought for me and kept me informed of my case constantly. He was responsive to all my phone calls and is extremely knowledgeable about criminal law. Richard is one of the few lawyers in town I could trust and rely on! He doesn't just take your money but he actually fights for your case.
