Winston K. McKesson represented me, I was charged with a felony facing jail time and deportation. My case seemed like a complicated mess but as soon as Kevin came on board I felt at ease. Whenever I had a question he was never too busy to take my call or answer an email. Mr. McKesson is one of the most formidable, hardest working criminal lawyer in Los Angeles. His experience in every type of criminal law – from Capital Murder to misdemeanors – makes him one of the most respected attorneys that the State of California has to offer. I highly recommend Kevin to anyone who needs the sound advice and the determination of a criminal lawyer who wants to win.

I trust this man with my life! He is not God but more like Johnny Cochran, "Jr.". Beat both my criminal cases in trial and it seemed miraculous at the time. The first time, Ex- felon gun possession ended with a unanimous, "Not Guilty" verdict. But most recently Just beat a, "Life sentence" with no option at a deal in a case where I clearly and admittingly shot a man three times however, regretfully.- Self- defense, in a serious situation where the man didn't have a gun nor was i hurt but, this man Mr. Mckesson laid down the United States Constitution with expertise. - Unanimous "Not Guilty" as well.
Maybe you have to know this man or see his work to trust him, but after the first time all I could say to him this recent and last go around is, "I trust you", and let him do "His" job. - Blessings

My brother had a very difficult and complicated case that involved him having two trials back to back within a few days of each other. The charges were very serious, in fact my brother was facing 25 years to life in prison if convicted. This case was a criminal/murder/mental insanity case all bottled into one. Mr. McKesson did not sugar coat what we were facing in this case. Although my brother was very much INsane at the time of the crime, getting a jury to believe and understand it was a dauting task especially with so many criminals using mental illness as a defense these days which has created skepticism among many in society, and rightfully so, but Mr. Kesson was honest with us, and he walked us through this case every step of the way. He never suggested that we lie about the facts, and he always took the time to answer our phone calls and to explain to us what was going on. My brother in his first trial, as predicted got the 25 years to life, but in the that second trial he was found not guilty by reason of insanity which means he is to seek therapy and counseling for his illness, but he will not have a criminal record at all, and he was found innocent of all charges. McKesson was able to prove that although this crime that was committed was awful and very sad for the family and the community involved, my brother was still insane at the time that the crime happened, and our family have Mr. McKesson to thank for being able to prove that the man who committed that crime before receiving mental help is not the same man today. He was able to show the jury and everyone in that court room what kind of man my brother was before becoming mentally ill. He was able to show my brother as a successful man who had a career even at the young age of 22 years old in the medical field where he had no prior criminal record. He even had my brother to testify on the stand in his own defense which many lawyers do not like to do, but McKesson prepared him for this task, and my brother was told to be honest and to simply tell his story, and he did. The jury was able to make their decision based on the evidence that McKesson had presented which was thorough and comprehensive, so my advice to anyone seeking a lawyer to handle a life or death situation, and anything in between, is to simply let you know that Winston Kevin McKesson is your man.
