I feel my first consultation with George I felt he was being very thorough letting me know my options. I knew I was totally innocent but it might have to be taken as far as a jury trial. I already had two lawyers previously on the case, I just wasn't happy with the plea bargains they offered. I then hired George to take over. He is getting my case DISMISSED. He was honest about all the possibilities that could happen but I liked his ideas. If your in need of an attorney meet him talk with him and you will see his sincerity. Thank you George !! my family and friends thank you too for the amazing results in a short time.

George is the best when it comes to protecting your rights. I had been arrested for resisting arrest, felony possession of bear mace, felon in possession ammunition and possession of narcotics. The DA offered 1yr in county jail or 16 months we didn't take a deal. George fought the case with me for over a year and today we WON!! with a Dismssal at preliminary hearing. George did a great job at defending me to achieve our victory!!

I made the mistake of retaining George Vincent Vargas as my attorney in February 2016 for a simple probation violation. I was trying to be assessed and accepted into drug court, which I explained to George before I paid him the retainer fee. George specifically stated that he could 100% get me accepted into drug court. Immediately after paying him a $5,000 retainer fee, it was virtually impossible to get ahold of him through phone or email. He refused to answer any and all questions I had regarding my case, took absolutely no action to get me into drug court, failed to appear for my first 2 court appearances, acted as if he didn't have time for me and provided the exact definition of ineffective assistance of counsel.
After George finally decided to show up to my 3rd court appearance, he immediately informed me that the prosecuting attorney didn't want to let me into drug court and that was the final answer. George failed to explain anything else regarding my case while we were in court and I was about to be sentenced. This attorney is literally the definition of incompetent.
George was extremely unprofessional in the manner he handled my case from the beginning. The day of my probation violation hearing, George decided to arrive at the courthouse 1 hour late. I wasn't afforded the right to consult with George before my case was called and he explained absolutely nothing to me about what exactly was taking place. I was sentenced to 8 months in the Orange County Jail because of this attorney. Disturbing to say the least.
