2nd DUI Charge Reduced!
I was being charged for a 2nd DUI in LA County (5 hours away from home) and I knew I needed help Asap! After speaking with multiple lawyers around, I found Edgar through here. His 100% focus on DUI charges and perfect reviews definitely caught my attention. He was able to reduce my DUI charge into a wet reckless with a really short amount of court ordered community service hours to do and only 12 hr program on DUI classes! Had it been a 2nd DUI conviction that would have been 9+ months of classes! About people in my DUI class all have 3 months of classes or more to do and I was the only one with 12 hours (the lowest there). Edgar is the man and I am glad I hired him. Plus he fought the DMV to allow me to keep my Driver's License and won that too. I would highly recommend him. Thanks Ed!

Case Dismissed.
Period. I found Edgar as a top search result and read the reviews. My decision to hire him was the right one. My case was dismissed. Edgar always kept me in the loop, proposed a plan of action, and took the lead to defend me against unfounded DUI allegations. I wish I could give him more than 5 stars.

Extremely Happy
I have a prior DUI and I had a different attorney represent me. I was not kept "in the loop" about anything, I was told to just sign here, and there went my thousands of dollars. This time I feel like I really lucked out by using Edgar. He analyzed my case several times, made all of the appearances for me, and I feel he honestly fought for me to get the best outcome possible. The main lesson to learn here is if you are arrested for a DUI, Edgar because he is the best DUI attorney. He can help you in your embarrassing time of need. Thank you Edgar for helping me and getting me the best outcome available to me!

Very happy with outcome
During my stressful time dealing with the thought of having another DUI on my record after getting into an accident and arrested for looking drunk, Mr. Reynoso assured me he would use all evidence gathered to reduce my charges. He was very detailed in his method of attack for my case and he answered all my questions and called me often to let me know how my case was evolving. After everything was done, my DUI got dropped and I can't tell you in words how thrilled and relieved I am with Mr. Reynoso's dedication and hard work. Thank you!!

One Happy Client
Upon my first encounter with Mr. Reynoso, I knew I was in the right hands. He made me very comfortable, and I felt at ease with him dealing with the court system. Mr Reynoso was always available for my questions and was more than knowledge with the specifics of my case. My outcome was favorable due to his professionalism. I would highly recommend Mr Edgar Reynoso to all my friends and family. Thank you Mr. Reynoso.

Working with Edgar was easy
i selected Edgar's law firm to work with my close friend on his DUI case. I had a very positive experience. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful and Edgar was excellent. I had a lot of questions and none of them was left unanswered. The response was always prompt and to the point. Edgar prepared great defense and was able to negotiate the best possible settlement. My friend is very greatful that his bad experience with the law was made as painless as possible. Thank you, Edgar, for your hard and effective work.

MIRACLE WORKER, BEST ATTORNEY EVER!!
In April of 2014 I was involved in a high speed DUI (BAC .13) accident (collision with another vehicle). I was charged with multiple DUI counts. I was facing a long time behind bars. Given the fact that I am a professional, I potentially had much to lose from a DUI conviction. As such, I sought out the most renowned DUI lawyers in Southern California. After meeting a few of them and leaving unimpressed (most had no empathy, humanism, rapport), I luckily stumbled across Reynoso on the AVVO site. I called the number listed and he personally picked up the phone at about 8 PM. He spent approximately 30 minutes on the phone with me listening to the details of my case, reassuring me, and scheduling an in-person consult. I met with him on a Saturday. Instantly he won over my family and I with his genuine concern and legal knowledge- we felt we were in good hands. After taking on my case, Edgar fought tirelessly to have the DA drop my charges. He was able to get the injury and refusal enhancements dismissed, and I pleaded no contest to a simple DUI (no jail!). All in all an excellent result for what I was facing off the bat. I highly recommend Mr. Reynoso, he will be a tireless advocate for your case.

Excellent service
After dealing with several other attorneys, Edgar was a breathe of fresh air. He answered all of my questions in a timely manner and was very personable to deal with. Best of all, he got us the results that we aimed for.
Posted by anonymous | July 31, 2015
Great!
Let me first start off by saying, I was facing years in state prison. Over the years i learned that you get what you pay for especially with legal defense. So that being said Edgar took the time to review every aspect and nook and cranny with in the justice system he negotiated a deal for me that will result in a jail alternative which is hard to attain being said i had a prior felony. So I'm glad I trusted my gut instinct and selected him to represent my case. I highly recommend Edgar!!

Best money i ever spent
Ed and his team made a very difficult and life changing event into something equal to a fix it ticket. His close relationships with everyone in the court system is invaluable and not something you would get from an out of town attorney. SO glad i picked him.
Posted by Paul | October 17, 2013
Thanks Edgar
I was told he is the best, by a Police Officer. I am very happy with Edgar's handling of my DUI case. He is very knowledgable in all areas of DUI defense and is certified in Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (the same training received by police officers) . Unlike other large law firms that assign DUI cases to younger, inexperienced attorneys, Edgar personally handled my case from start to finish. I recommend Edgar to anyone seeking a DUI attorney.

Edgar Saved Me
I thought the evidence against me was overwhelming. I blew a 0.12 twice. Edgar convinced me to not plead guilty. Due to Edgar's persistence and skills, the case never went to trial. The charges were dismissed. I am forever grateful to Edgar.

Early Termination of Probation and DUI Case Dismissed By Expungement
Mr. Reynoso did an outstanding job in my case. I had originally hired an attorney to handle my Orange County DUI charge and was unhappy with their services. Mr. Reynoso helped me get off probation on early termination and convinced the judge to dismissmy case, even when the state objected. He always returned my calls and emails in a timely manner and most importantly he always arrived at court 30 minutes prior. I highly recommend attorney Reynoso because of him I now have a second chance in life. Thanks Edgar

I would recommend him to anyone!
Mr. Reynoso was able to prevent a filing of a DUI charge and won the DMV hearing. My blood alcohol was .11%. He was very aggressive and spent a great deal of time on my case. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone.
Posted by W.K. | May 9, 2010
Mr. Reynoso won a very difficult case for me
I was arrested for possession of cocaine, hit & run, and DUI a few years ago. The cops found me parked in my driveway, behind the wheel fast asleep. Two male police officers appeared out of nowhere and dragged us out of the car. I was charged with DUI, drug possession and hit & run - apparently I hit another car at a red light on my way home.. I am a schoolteacher and this would certainly get me fired if I lost the case, so the stakes were high. Mr. Reynoso did an amazing job cross-examining the police officers in court. He obtained exclude certain evidence, including the cocaine. He was able to convince the judge to dismiss the case. I cannot express how grateful i am to Ed Reynoso.
