Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. I first meet Al years ago when he was a Deputy DA for San Bernardino County even though we opposed each other on cases I found him to be firm but FAIR. He was always prepared and offered out of the box ways to resolve a case. Now working along side him as a defense Attorney I see a strong advocate who is well respected, hard working who cares about his clients and true Justice. I strongly endorse Al !
