If you are looking for an attorney that is assertive, attentive, caring, knowledgeable, professional and productive look no further. I can't say good enough things about attorney Mary Bernal. She made sure I understood the information she would relate to me, and if I didn't understand something she would take the time to re-explain it. Mary Bernal is so easy to talk to. Overall, I am really pleased to have come across her. Till this day I believe God sent her to us. I would definitely recommend and hire her again in the future.

Ms. Bernal was very attentive and assertive in representing our family member. It was a comfort to know that she is a Christian and was praying along side of us. Ms. Bernal assisted us with a juvenile case, and was successful with getting charges dropped. All along she was thorough with all documents and made sure to explain all the legal formalities for our understanding. We strongly recommend Ms. Bernal for your legal representative.

I can't say enough about Attorney Mary Bernal. This was my first time dealing with the legal system. Right from the start, Attorney Bernal walked me through exactly what kind of consequences I was facing with my charge and what her plan of action would be. It was a very informative conversation we had for about 60 minutes including her praying. From that point forward the majority of my worries were lifted. I would highly recommend Attorney Mary Bernal. She is a true professional and knows her way around the court system.

Mary Bernal represented my grandson in a law suit. I know for a fact that if I I had not had her, things would have been so much worse. She worked diligently to get all the info needed to represent him. I would recommend her law firm to anyone!

My attorney and her staff were able to keep me from any jail time and drop my case from a felony to ultimately a dismissal. They are very resourceful, dedicated with lots of experience.

Mary Bernal is an outstanding attorney and person. She handled my back-to-back cases of DUI's with the utmost concern and care. Her office staff is knowledgable and easy to get into contact with. Mary stayed on top of all my court dates, paperwork, and legal counseling. When all of my penalties were assigned, she took time to explain what was going to happen before and after. Mary showed the same concern a friend would, but the professional service of an extremely experienced attorney.

We retained Mary for our nephew in February of 2012. She has been a Godsend for our family. We have yet to go to trial but everything that she has explained to us along the way has occurred exactly the way she said it would. When this incident occurred we had no idea what to do, where to go. We never imagined we would be in this position. This case has two female defendants and four brothers involved - we could only afford one attorney for my nephew with the most serious charge. Mary stepped in and worked with the other attorneys and made sure the deals they received were fair. She helped one of the other defendant's family by putting them in contact with a bail bondsman that gave them a large discount because of her. Her paralegal Maricela was fabulous! She is always helpful and willing to answer any and all questions. She always exhibits a high level of professionalism as well. Mary's colleague, Jahzeel, on occasion has stood in for Mary during our continuances at court and she is also very knowledgeable and professional. She updates us as to what we can expect in the hearings. Believe me when I say this law office is equipped with the best support staff and attorneys your money can buy. I read some of the reviews stating the attorney was all about money - I certainly hope they realize when it comes to your defense, you are getting what you pay for. When it is all or nothing, you definitely do not want to bargain shop for your future! This office is a Christian faith based practice and to know she is doing God's work reassures me she was put into our path for a reason! I am glad we did not go with the other attorneys we met with. I have faith in her and her practice - I know the outcome will be in our favor because she has God's favor. I tell everyone I come in contact with about her and I keep her cards in my purse - I would hope that my friends and family wouldn't need to call but if they do I want them to have the best! We will forever be grateful and indebted to her and her practice.

I was recommended to Mary for my son. My son is a good kid who made a bad choice and got in trouble (misdemeanors). Mary and her assistant (Maricela) were fantastic and explained everything to us step-by-step. Mary was trying to get him into a fairly new program called deferred entry of judement, even though Mary was told that my son did not qualify for it. Mary's office fought and even called supervisors at the district attorneys to get my son this program. Their hard work paid off, they dropped 1 charge and after completing one 6hr. class the remaining charge would be dismissed. Words can not express how greatful our family is to them. Thank you

Our son’s drug problems threw us into the frying pan of a complicated legal system we knew nothing about. Feeling like fish out of water, we found the task of finding a competent and caring attorney to handle his impending charges to be extremely difficult. After hiring one criminal defense attorney and paying him thousands of dollars, we felt ignored and stiffed. In our guts we knew we had hired the wrong attorney. At court, the attorney was MIA on two of three dates and instead sent a frazzled staff member. Eventually he was fired due to incompetence. In our search for another attorney, we interviewed four potential candidates. The decision was easy after speaking with Mary Bernal, and she was hired within a day of our interview.
We chose Mary because she seemed to truly care about the outcome of our son’s case and was willing to represent him aggressively. She was upfront about her fees, what our son was facing in the criminal justice system, what could happen, and what she would do to avert the worst possible outcomes. Mary attended all but one court appearance, but sent a competent substitute in her place. In the end, Mary represented our son like a bulldog protecting its owner. She fought to get his charges reduced; she inspired the court to see him as the bright and remorseful young man he is who made unfortunate choices in his youth. Had we ignored our gut, it’s not inconceivable that our son could be in prison today. Luckily this is not the case. Mary gave us our son back and helped pave the path that he needed to stay on the sober track and out of the legal system.
