Being charged with a crime and facing possible jail time is a very serious and scary situation. If you or someone you know is charged with a criminal offense, I highly recommend you speak with David Gutierrez. He and his staff are dedicated to the best resolution of your case. He really will fight for you in court. I have referred several clients to him and have heard nothing but positive things about his work. I also consult with him regarding possible immigration issues that my clients may have due to a criminal charge or conviction. Be sure to contact David Gutierrez if you need a criminal defense attorney.

Cant say Enough; Thank you Thank you Thank you
I originally started with another attorney. He wanted me to take a deal after only one month. I paid the attorney 5000 dollars and he went to court only three times. I was frustrated. I went and talked to David and his office staff. They listened and did not promise me anything. They charged me a lot more but they did promise to meet with me and share all police reports and explain the law. Sure enough, as soon as I hired them, I got a copy of my police report, they met with me, explained it all and got "busy." Best decision I ever made. David and his staff fought hard. My first attorney wanted me to take 6 years and David got me 12 months for what I did. I was extremely happy.
