    Russell handled my wife's case. She was charged with six felony counts of workers comp fraud. This was a traumatic experience for us. Russell believed in my wife and worked hard for her. After much hard work and many court appearances, Russell was able to settle the case with no felonies and no jail time, He negotiated just a single misdemeanor and drastically reduced restitution amount. Russell is a highly experienced and respected criminal defense attorney. He returns calls and messages promptly and deeply cares about his clients. We are very grateful that Russell was on our side. I highly recommend the legal services of Russell Babcock.

    I first met Russell when he visited me at the Metropolitan Correctional Center the very same day I contacted him to assist in my federal criminal case. He was able to secure my release much more quickly than had I not used an attorney.
    Since my release, Mr. Babcock has been attentive to every detail of my criminal case, from accompanying me at court appearances to assisting me with understanding the criminal trial process. Best of all, he kept me aware of next steps and what I could expect along the way, and was always approachable.
    I highly recommend Mr. Babcock for this professional, expert work.

    I received a call from the U.S. pretrial services notifying me that my son had been arrested on Federal charges and was looking at a sentence of 5 to 10 years. I searched for an attorney specializing in border cases. I was blessed to have found Mr. Babcock. Over the course of 5 months (that included 90+ e-mails and numerous phone calls), Mr. Babcock always did what he said he was going to do. He never talked over our heads and was always patient and understanding. Mr. Babcock goes the extra mile. He initially met with my son at 11:30 pm. Mr. Babcock accommodated meetings with my son anytime he requested one. Additionally, Mr. Babcock had a concern with my son lacking a definitive plan once he was released from Federal custody. Mr. Babcock always treated us with the care and understanding of a family member. Mr. Babcock was able to obtain an extremely favorable outcome in front of one of the toughest judges in the Southern District (6 months custody, 12 months rehabilitation program).

    Doesn't get much better than this. I had gotten the worst of everything in my case, i was facing a Felony over $4100 dollars in fines 6 months jail, and the loss of my license, at the time of sentencing Russell made a fantastic plea with the judge to reduce my felony to a misdemeanor. Not only did the Felony get reduced but my fines were greatly reduced and i still got to keep my license and faced no jail time. I would definitely recommend Russell to anyone who needs serious defending. Many Thanks Russell

    I am very grateful for the representation provided to me by Russell Babcock. I went to San Diego on vacation with some friends to get away from a brutal Rocky Mountain winter. On our second day there one person in our group brought drugs with him to the beach and decided to help himself to a pocket in my daypack to stash them. I took them out and gave them back to him and that was witnessed by plain clothes police who then arrested us both and charged us with felonies including conspiracy and intent to distribute. I had never been in trouble with the law, and now I was locked up with a high bail and facing a prison sentence. I was devastated. A felony conviction would also mean the end of my career. Nobody wanted to listen to my side of the story. My family called Russell Babcock and he listened to how I had ended up in jail and he immediately told me his goal was to get me out of jail with a much lower bail and to fight the charges until they were dismissed. He recognized that being a convicted felon was not an option for me. Mr. Babcock was very confident in his abilities to defend me and told me of recent similar cases he had worked on with successful outcomes. Based on his eagerness to help me turn this case around and use all of his experience and knowledge of the criminal justice system to represent and defend me, I decided to retain him as my attorney. Sure enough, at my first hearing I was released on a lower bail, and over the course of the next few months and all my court appearances he took the time to get to know me and the facts of my case. He represented me extremely well and worked on my behalf with the District Attorney so that I could be placed in a court-sanctioned program for first offenders. This meant I did not have to go to trial and after I completed the program, my case was dismissed and I have no criminal record whatsoever. My employer even found out about the case through the periodic background checks they do, and I could confidently tell them I was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that the charges were dismissed. They were very happy with that outcome, too, and have never mentioned it again. For all these reasons I am extremely satisfied with how well I was represented by Russell Babcock. I recommend him without reservation to anyone who has need for expert criminal defense.

    MY SON WAS ARRESTED IN 2011 DUE TO A DRUG TUNNEL CASE. THE CASE WAS VERY COMPLICATED WE DIDNT HAVE ANY IDEA OF WHAT TO DO THEN WE CONTACT MR. BABCOCK'S FIRM. MR. BABCOK AND MR. MARDOCK WERE VERY COMPREHENSIVE AND SENSITIVE WITH ME AND MY FAMILY. THEY WHERE ALWAYS THERE WHEN WE HAD A QUESTION ABOUT ANYTHING RELATED TO THE CASE. THEY STARTED WORKING ON THE CASE AND MY SON SIGNED A MINIMUM SENTENCE OF 13 YRS. IN PRISON. THE CASE TOOK A LONGER THAN WHAT WE ALL EXPECTED IT TOOK 2 YRS. TO CONCLUDE BUT AT THE END MR. BABCOCK AND HIS STAFF DID EVERYTHING POSSIBLE AND INSTEAD OF 13 YRS. MY SON RECEIVED 36 MONTHS. HAVING MR. BABCOCK AND RYAN WORKING ON THIS CASE WAS THE BEST CHOICE ME AND MY FAMILY COULD EVER MADE... I WISH THEM THE BEST AND I WILL ALWAYS BE THANKFUL WITH THEM.
