We had a good experience with Michael. He guided
us to go through the steps for my son's case. I look
forward to finishing up on the details and appreciated
his expediting the process.

I am a DUI attorney for 36 years and in practice for 39 years in San Diego Ca. I referred a terrible police abuse case to Mike where the police officer tore a urine bag off the body of my poor client dieing of cancer. The cop then threw the bag dripping with human waste on to the grass. He was subsequently taken to the hospital. On a case like this there is only one attorney I trust and that is the masters level in police abuse cases Mike Marrinan. Unbelievably he came to my clients home on saturday in the rain and spent over an hour with the family. How knowledgeable and gracious he is. I can not say enough about this champion of human rights. Thank God there are highly ethical attorneys still in practice in San Diego like Michael Ryan Marrinan. Thank you. Eugene E. Esq. JD, LLB.

I was referred to Mr. Marrinan from my criminal defense attorney. It was the most important referral of my life. Mr. Marrinan is a civil rights attorney, specializing in police misconduct. Mr. Marrinan is the most competent and knowledgeable attorney I have ever met. This was my very first civil case where he guided and mentored me through entire process. He was always available (via phone and email), to answer any of my questions or concerns. I felt like I was his only client, knowing that he had many other clients. His attention to detail is unparalleled and that made all the difference!
In the end we resolved our case to a very favorable result. But more importantly, I want to personally thank Mr. Marrinan for giving back my dignity and making the police accountable for their gross negligence.
