I was charged with a felony and I retained Mr. Guisti. He was very caring and understanding over the phone and giving me logical advice as the case moves along. He got my case returned to the PD but He failed to follow up on my case when my case came back from PD and refiled under a different case number. So he did not show up to my hearing resulting in a warrant issued on me.
it might just fell through the crack but I lost faith and confidence in Mr.Guisti because of it. It s unfortunate I had to terminate our client to attorney relationship up to this point.

Mr. Guisti has been nothing but a good fortune during the coarse period of taking care of my case (which took about a year).
He listened to my case over a simple coffee meeting and he nodded throughout the entire session. What I loved about him is that not only was he helping me understand what kind of legal procedure that I'm about to go through, but also didn't forget to share some heartfelt life advice. It felt as if my older uncle was telling me that everything was going to be alright.
The case itself was an arduous waiting task. As busy a man Mr. Guisti was, he was understanding enough to answer all my questions and frustration throughout the entire year. Sometimes he was unreachable but I tried my best to not bother him as I understood that he had other matters to attend to. A visual representation of how the case was going would have helped to ease my mind during the process but a couple phone calls was sufficient enough.
The very first legal battle that I had I was glad to have Mr. Guisti with me along the way throughout. Even though he was my first attorney that I've hired, I'm more than satisfied to have hired him.

I made a mistake and had a run in with the law. Being my first time in trouble with the law, I would say fear and panic would be an understatement. I spent so much time researching lawyers that can help me get out of my situation. Out of the MANY lawyers I researched, Mr. Guisti made an impression. Even before speaking with him, his credentails and reviews spoke for itself so I had to give him a call. When I first called Mr. Guisti, he was on his way to court but was kind enough to make time and listen to my situation as he was driving. Mr. Guisti made me feel comfortable and reassured me that he will listen without any judgement or bias. After I explained my case, Mr. Guisti helped take away my anxiety and fears and told me with confidence he could help me with my case. I respected his honesty, his knowledge of the law, and most importantly his innate aggressiveness to help and defend his clients. Im so thankful there are people like Mr. Guisti that want to help people (even those that make mistakes). I would defenitely recommend Mr. Guisti to all my friends and family. Thank you Mr. Guisti!

I hired Mr Guisti for my case. After the stressful ordeal and now being able to analyze what happened, I would not recommend him.
Here is my experience:
Mr Guisti was very accommodating in the beginning. He would bring up his same personal story to try to relate to my situation. He did not take notes when I shared my side of the story. After the first few meetings, I requested to review additional discoveries that came up but my call was never returned. Whenever there was a court date, he would rarely show up on time (causing my family and I to wait for our turn with the judge at the end). He did not keep me updated with what is going on unless I ask questions (imagine not knowing what to ask because I do not know the legal process). I had a meeting at his office in Garden Grove which he was not there. I had to call and remind him that we had an appointment. I was not happy with how unprepared and disorganized this experience was. I did not get a sense that he had a support staff. When there was the media, he made it an effort to put himself on the news which I did not find helpful for my case.
I wanted to switch to another lawyer early but I could not afford paying another so I dealt with what I had...

Michael is very high educated and prof attorney. I had good experience working with him, he is opened and friendly to his clients and tries to do his best to make case dismissed. I'm glad that Michael helped me!

I was facing serious fraud charges and Michael handled the case very professionally. It was my first offense, and having very little knowledge about the law, he helped me fight me case and exceeded my expectations. In the beginning, I was very concerned that I would charged with all the felonies, and it would affect my future. In the end, the charges were dropped. What was great about Michael was that he made me feel very comfortable and confident that I would get the results I wanted. He made sure to contact me often to keep me updated with every detail of my case. This had to be the most stressful time of my life and Michael stood beside me and help me undergo the whole process. I cannot thank Michael enough for the work that he has done for me.

Michael Guisty is a brilliant attorney. He is approachable and takes your case personal. When I approached him with my case, he assured me that he would do his best to get my case dismissed, and that was the outcome. He put a smile on my face with the resolution of my case. He is tough, resolute, articulate and professional In my opinion he is the best criminal lawyer in southern California
