Carlos Navarrete is a very kind, caring, and truly dedicated lawyer. When we first started my case I was devastated that I was even in the predicament I was. He instantly let me know that I wasn't in this alone and to keep my head up. He definitely kept his word. He was there from start to finish, any questions I had he was always there to answer. Navarrete did everything he could possibly do for my case and I am more than thankful for that. I would definitely recommend him as a lawyer! Thank you so much for all your help. I couldn't have done it without you.

Ultra Professional Lawyer
We hired Carlos Navarrete to defend my wife for a 1993 felony conviction. He wrote and filed a Motion to Vacate her prior plea via Sec 1473.7-- which was written to help immigrants whose rights have been violated in the Judicial process. Mr. Navarrete was able to have her sentence vacated, and reduced a significant level-- one that would no longer affect her immigration rights. We found him to be very professional and very accessible. Those are two points other lawyers are not able to provide for their clients. At no point did we have trouble contacting him and ask him questions. In the end, he was successful in assisting in my wife's defense. We recommend Mr. Navarrete 100% as a defense lawyer.

In time of need, this might just be the man to call.
Dealing with lawyers and those "slap you in the face"; real life issues. It can be very intimidating and an over all frightening experience. Being in my situation, I was beyond myself. I was devastated that I was even in this predicament. But finding a lawyer as kind, caring, and truly dedicated to me. That alone was a feeling of hope, and a feeling knowing no matter what I won't have to go though this alone. Carlos Navarrette was exactly what I needed in my time of need. Life is about choices we choose to make, whether good or bad. I'm just glad I made the right choice with Carlos Navarrete. Thank you from the depths of my heart for taking on my case, and helping me through my darkest time.
