Great Attorney
My family & I hired Raoul and his team to handle a complex case that involved very serious criminal charges, restraining order, and a nasty divorce with lots of assets and children. The case started when the wife called the police claiming that she was attacked. The police came and made an arrest. The DA filled charges for domestic violence and assaulting a police officer. The DA also filed a criminal stay away order. Which was followed by a restraining order. Few months went by, Raoul litigated the case vigorously and was able to get the felony and misdemeanor charges dismissed. Which was amazing. Considering the jail exposure and the overall repercussion of having a felony conviction. Raoul explained the complexities of the criminal case in conjunction with the divorce, child custody, and the restraining order. Having a criminal conviction, or restraining order can prevent you from having custody of your children and effecting spousal support. That being said, we hired Raoul to handle the divorce and the restraining order as well. Which was amazing. Because we didn't have to deal with navigating the complex legal issues on our own. Raoul and his assistants worked tirelessly to obtain very favorable results. They explained everything every step of the way. At no point did I ever feel that I was being kept in the dark. All my questions were answered. A strategy was discussed and planned out. It was hands on and I was involved. When I suggested something or a strategy I wasn't shut down. I was explained the pros and cons of why it would or wouldn't work. The quality of legal representation is unmatched. At least in my experience dealing with prior attorneys. I would highly recommend Raoul and his assistants to anyone dealing with a criminal case. There's not enough good things I can say about Raoul! He is legally skilled, sharp, concise, eloquent, commands the courtroom, and his approach is cost efficient. Thanks again for the favorable results. I am extremely satisfied with your services!

Mr. Severo saved my life
In my opinion it's always tough to write about people that were with you when things got tough, but Mr. Raoul Severo was heaven-sent! He literally help my hand and reassured me that if I needed him, he was there. Sadly I did need him, but thankfully, he was there to answer my calls at night and my issues in court. I hope that no one goes through what I experienced, but I highly recommend Mr. Sevro to be by your side if it does. Let me tell you a little bit about my case... Early January of this year, I was charged with 2nd degree possession of a firearm in a school zone. I was facing mandatory minimum of 3.5 years, up to 15 years in prision. I felt doomed and pessimistic besides this new arrest I was on active probation and required to have no police contact. Mr. Severo asked me to be completely honest and detailed with him regarding the events leading to my arrest. He was compassionate, reasonable, honest, and answered all my questions and text messages . I have texted at 11:45 pm and 6:30 am and always got answered. My charges and case were dismissed, without my presence in court. Mr. Severo and his team are amazing best law firm and attorneys in CA.

Thanks
I spoke with five other attorney's regarding my case and Raoul Severo was the only one who would guarentee the outcome I was looking for and his pricing was the most reasonable! His office was extremely professional and was able to quickly resolve issues and was ultimately successful in the dismissal of my case. I am extremely fortunate and grateful for his help! Hands down I would use his services again, but I guarantee I won't ever need to because I won't ever be in that position again! Thank you Mr. Raoul Severo!

Best Attorney
I give the highest recommendation to Mr. Raoul Severo. After retaining his services, he proved to be hard-working, personable, reliable & honest. I could call or email anytime to ask questions about my case. He's always quick to respond, and keeps you informed. It was also easy to set up automatic payments instead of paying in full. He also financially competed with other attorneys. Mr. Severo went to all my court dates except for the very last one I had to attend. I didn't have to use any vacation or personal time from work. In conclusion, even though it was a difficult time in my life, using Mr. Severo made it a much better experience. Thanks again Mr. Severo!

Amazing Skill
I have had the opportunity to observe Raoul Severo at trial. I never understood the reason of hiring a private lawyer until I saw his performance in person. I can only equate it to a play which my life was in his hands. Raoul is amazing and saved years of my life. He is a natural negotiator and is able to obtain great plea offers for his clients. I highly recommend hiring him if you find yourself arrested or under investigation.

Experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive
This man is a lawyer's lawyer. If you need an attorney that is experienced in federal and state criminal cases, has a profound knowledge of crimes and criminal procedures and is a shrewed practitioner of the law, Mr. Severo should be your lawyer.
Posted by jorge | March 29, 2013
Brilliant mind
Mr, Severo was able to grasp my situation immediately and recommended a viable plan of action and approach that no other attorney had even suggested. He cannot be topped when it comes to strategy and approaches to a legal problem. Moreover the judges he presented briefs to were very impressed at his eloquence and stated so. He was a pleasure to work with during a very difficult time.
