I have had the distinction of achieving many outstanding awards including one for my dedication to pro bono services. I believe strongly in using my legal skills for the betterment of the community.

I’m a personal injury attorney who focuses on helping people who have been injured in a car accident. These moments are extremely stressful for you and your family. My team and I will help you during these difficult and emotional times.

I love what I do and work hard to make my clients my top priority. My goal is to provide the highest quality legal services to you. I’m committed to protect and advance your legal rights while providing you with personal and effective service. My work speaks for itself. That’s why most of my cases are referrals from past clients. I believe this is the highest honor an attorney can receive.

I was one of the youngest attorneys to be admitted to the State Bar of California. I am bilingual in Spanish and the former President of the Long Beach Barristers Bar Association. I am one of the few attorneys to have a verdict over ten million dollars.

Let me help you achieve legal success with honesty and integrity. I look forward to talking with you and to discuss how my team and I can help. Please contact us today for a free confidential consultation so that we can begin to take care of you.

Renegotiated Reckless Driving Case after conviction!
I plead no contest to a reckless driving case for driving very fast and was issued 40 days of Cal Trans service that I did not complete. Mr. Montes De Oca negotiated a generous extension of time and reduced the Cal Trans to community service. Later on, he directed me on how to get the charge expunged. I have never heard about this case after a background check for employment purposes. I would highly recommend Mr. Montes De Oca for any legal service.

Broken hand
I broke my hand in a car accident which i wasn't at fault and had Chris and his other attorney Artin to defend since the other insurance company didn't want to pay me for there client who hit me and Chris and Artin went the extra mile and above and beyond to get me paid. I was always kept informed and up to date on my case. Chris and Artin are very good injury and accident attorneys so if you want top notch attorneys on your team, Chris and Artin is who you want

Excellent Lawyer
My name is Dana. Two years ago I fell and shattered my left wrist after stepping on ice in a restaurant. As a result, I underwent surgery to repair the break and now have a metal plate and screws attached to my left wrist. Chris represented me in my personal injury suit and we came out of mediation with a very favorable settlement. Chris is a professional, courteous and intelligent lawyer. After reaching our settlement, the mediator commented that Chris was one of the most professional lawyers he's worked with in a very long time. Being a legal secretary for the last 25 years, I know good lawyers. I highly recommend his services.

Great Help!
Chris was great! He called me back and answered all of my questions. He even gave me advice on options going forward with my case. I will definitely recommend Chris to family and friends!

Superb Attorney, Great at his job
Of all the lawyers I looked at to take my case, Chris was by far the most clear, understanding, and communicative. He made sure I understood exactly what was going on and did his best to keep me relaxed. In the end, he was able to get my felony charge lowered to a misdemeanor and then cleared from my record. His name would be the first I recommend to anyone looking for a criminal defense lawyer.

Awesome defense attorney. Christopher did an excellent job of keeping me worry-free throughout my case. In the end, he got my charges dropped from a felony to a minor misdemeanor and he goes beyond the extent to getting this charge wiped out from my record within a certain amount of time. Highly recommended. He is very reliable, knowledge, and kept me informed throughout. I would highly recommend anyone who needs a defense attorney.
