Excellent Appeals Attorney
Mr. Quinn took over our case after our appellate attorney unexpectedly passed away. We were put in a very unfortunate situation because our deceased attorney had already filed portions of our appeal, but there was still much more that needed to be done. This is a difficult spot to be in because there are few attorneys in the industry that were willing to take over our appeal, especially after it had already been started by another attorney. Many attorneys had already turned us down, with the exception of Mr. Stephane Quinn. Once we retained Mr. Quinn, he did an outstanding job with our appeal. For those who are unfamiliar with appeals, it is very difficult to pick up where another attorney has left off. The entire file has to be reviewed, including the entire trial court transcript. That being said, he did an extraordinary job reviewing the file, and providing the legal arguments necessary for us to have the best possible outcome. He went over and above our expectations, and we are extremely pleased that he was willing to take on our appeal, and most importantly, he did an extraordinary job in reviewing our lengthy file in the short amount of time that he had to file our documents with the appellate court. We would highly recommend Mr. Quinn to anyone who needs any appellate representation.

Quinn -- Extraordinary Attorney
I have worked with Quinn recently in 2016. I retained Quinn to represent me in the case of child custody, and child/spousal support that was filed by my ex-spouse. I found Quinn when I called the office of my appellate attorney who was just passed away. Quinn has extraordinary ability to listen to me, understand my legal concerns and sincerely provide advice that I feel comfortable to accept. Quinn also helped me with coping skills, knowing that my only child was just leaving me before he turned 18. Even though I worked with Quinn for a short term, I felt as if I have built a trusting relationship with Quinn for many years. If I have someone who are searching for a family law or appellate attorney, I would recommend Quinn because Quinn's kindness, intelligence, accommodation and professionalism is beyond excellence.

Best High Stakes Custody and Financial lawyer in OC
We had the war of the roses. When I showed up on Quinn's door, I had lost everything (children, home and companies) from previous counsel. Quinn "listened" to my goal and implemented a plan to achieve it. He maintained my expectations below that which he consistently achieved and vigorously fought for me and my child until balance was restored. We are forever grateful for the firm, its people and Quinn!

Fantastic Law Firm and Attorneys!
Stephane Quinn with the law firm of Quinn Dworakowski Family Law Attorneys LLP stepped in at the last minute of my 20+ year divorce case. My long-term attorney who was a wonderful person fell ill and had to resign then the second attorney I hired also fell ill and resigned. I was in violation of a court order and the judge refused my request to continue the trial to a later date. With only a week to prepare for trial Stephane Quinn and the entire law firm worked diligently to prepare for trial. In a matter of days they were well prepared and acquainted with the facts of the case unlike my prior attorneys. Stephane Quinn and Danielle Struwe his second chair went to court prepared and ready to handle such a long complicated and contentious divorce case. They presented an organized and well laid out plan of action. This ultimately led to a mutually fair resolution. This entire law firm is unbelievably dedicated to their clients and I highly recommend them especially for complicated divorce matters. Quinn and Danielle will forever have my deepest gratitude in settling this decades long matter. My only regret was not retaining them in the first place.

Fabulous lawyer for juvenile defense!
Our 16 year old found himself charged with a crime as a juvenile that could have cost him going to college and his future. Quinn came highly recommended and he did not disappoint. He aggressively fought the charges and won an outright dismissal. He is compassionate and professional. I highly recommend this attorney

YOU CAN BEAT CITY HALL!!!
Quinn is ready up for the task. When i was feeling down about my case, he texted me 'We haven't begun to fight". I felt a renewed sense security and I was right. Quinn stayed for the long haul waiting till almost 12:30 am in the morning to fight in front of City Hall and we WON!! He was very patience and had the great sense of timing to be successful. He was just right for this one and I am one lucky girl to have found Quinn. Here he is in action. We are the last case to be heard at the City of Laguna Beach. This is worth the look, he has the due diligence, intuitive intellect and the all powerful 'Justice for all' fight in him. I am truly grateful to find him. Friend always ...

A caring, committed and highly skilled trial attorney
I only write reviews when I think a person has gone above and beyond, that is why I am writing this review on Mr. Quinn. About six months ago, I was charged with a serious misdemeanor. I turned to a close friend, an attorney himself, who was very familiar with Orange County’s criminal courts. Without hesitation he recommended Stephane Quinn. In all honesty, I was not the best client, choosing to stick my head in the sand and pretend the entire thing never happened. I don’t think I could have gotten through this ordeal having another attorney. Mr. Quinn's willingness to communicate, his concern and his expertise were amazing. He never once backed down and was fully prepared to take my case to trial. In fact, he prepared so much, that he caught the D.A. off guard and the entire case was dismissed. Best criminal attorney in all of Orange County and a nice guy to boot!

hard working, straight forward, great results
One of the best criminal attorneys around. Stephane is hard working, straight forward with his approach, reasonable and transparent with fees, and gets great results. He is now a primary contact for all my criminal law legal needs. If you have any criminal law problem at all, I strongly recommend that you call Stephane Quinn.

This Attorney is Fabulous!
Stephane Quinn is a wonderful attorney. Our experience with him was truly outstanding. Our 16 year old son was facing felony charges in juvi court which could have cost him his entire future. Others attorneys we consulted basically told us he should plead guilty. BUT our son was innocent! Mr. Quinn successfully fought case and it was dismissed! This guy is caring, intelligent and highly committed!

Outstanding Criminal Laywer
After terminating the service one of the most prestigious criminal law firm in Orange County. I was referred to Stephane Quinn. During my initial consultation he discussed what lied ahead in achieving my goal within the criminal court system. Throughout the entire 8 month process, Quinn constantly keep me apprised of his progress and any updated information pertinent to my case. At this time I am happy and extremely relieved to report that Quinn succeeded in getting a favorable ruling on my behalf. Without any hesitation I would highly recommend him for his legal expertise and work ethics.
