At a loss for words..
After going to different lawyers for consultations, I finally settled on Anthony Munoz to represent me and I’m so glad I did! The thing that separated him from the rest was his genuine compassion. He is such a great listener and very empathetic. He takes the time to get to know you as a person in order to help best represent you. After speaking to him on the phone for the first time, I knew he was exactly who I had been waiting for. I was looking at 1 year in prison, probation, fines, etc you name it. From the day I hired him up until my court date was about 2 weeks. I expected my case to go on for months but no. After going in for my arrangement he got all the charges completely dismissed and all I had to pay was a small fine to the court. (400 compared to the thousands I was facing). He fought so hard for me and in getting to know him, I know he would do the same for anyone else. You would be foolish to not go forward with Anthony. He has everyone’s best interest at heart.

The Lawyer You Want on Your Side
If you're dealing with an ex who lies to the courts and tries to cheat the system, Anthony is the guy to get to and show the court the truth and put a stop to the lies. He took a genuine interest in getting the best outcome for my daughter and I. I would recommend him to anyone out there fighting a vengeful ex whose looking out for themselves rather than your child.

Recommend this Attorney
Mr. Munoz was recently re hired by us to help us with our case. Mr. Munoz and Ms. Phillips has helped us with a couple of our court cases. Because Mr. Munoz and his teams work/effort in the past is the reason we keep coming back. His professionalism and knowledge of the law is awesome. Anthony works hard and takes the time to not only explain thoroughly what is and may take place but also does excellent research to prepare for court.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Munoz and his staff are superb. They took over my case when I became concerned that my then current lawyer was not taking the best care of my divorce and child custody cases. Even though I have experienced considerable stress because of the nature of my cases, I was able to sleep better knowing that Mr. Munoz was looking out for me. I highly recommend Mr. Munoz. He is detailed, professional, and does his homework before he walks into Court.

Heaven Sent!!
I have been fighting an ugly divorce and custody battle for 3 1/2 years now. I recently let go of my old Lawyer. I though I could do this on my own and was tired of my case being put off over and over. I recently hired Mr. Munoz July 2017, after speaking with him I was feeling hope again. I was nerveous about my upcoming court date, and how was he going to represent me. Let me tell you I walked out of that court room with my head so high I haven't felt that in a very long time. Mr. Munoz has gone above and beyond for me, I also was fighting a criminal case due to a restraing order violation and he was not the Lawyer representing me but I was able to ask him question and he did not hesitate to give me advice and guide me in that case too. I can honestly say Mr. Munoz was Heaven Sent!!! He is not only a Lawyer but a friend that cares. Thank You Mr Munoz...

Excellent Attorney
New to San Luis Obispo, and facing a complicated divorce, I was in search of an attorney. A local friend referred me to Anthony. He has been amazing. Very skilled, knowledgeable, thorough, and compassionate. I have complete peace of mind knowing he is representing my case. He has been available when problems arise, and is good at explaining how to navigate the situation in the most favorable way. Because of his legal advice, I have been able to avoid a lot of problems. To friends and family, I have given him my highest recommendation, without reservation.

Truly humble and a kick ass attorney
I officially hired Anthony Munoz June 2015, and the outcome of my divorce was officially over July 2017. Although it was a rough and exhausting two years, I couldn't have been luckier to have found such a compassionate attorney like Mr. Munoz. He never promised anything he couldn't deliver. My ex husband and his attorney did do some shady and immoral things throughout the whole divorce process and Mr. Muniz kept his cool and would assure me we would not stoop to their level. He was patient and knew when to act. Never compromised his integrity and was always available when I needed him. The outcome of my divorce was more then I could've asked for. He kept assuring me and would direct me on the "do's and don't's" and because of his expertise I was well prepared for anything they threw our way. I recently recommened Mr. Muniz to a close friend as a criminal defense attorney and he gave their family results in a very timely manner and closed out the case. Needless to say they are extremely pleased. I can sincerely call Mr. Muniz a friend because he truly cares for his clients and from my personal experience he takes his cases very personal. His legal fees are reasonable and he and his staff will work with the person to figure out anyone's financial situation in order to get you legal representation. It's my humble honor to recommend Anthony Munoz to anyone in need of a Family Law Attorney or a Criminal Defense Attorney. God willing I don't ever need another attorney again, but if I do, he will be my first choice.

A great white
I heard of Mr. Munoz from a few friends. People from different walks of life. I was looking at 1 yr in county jail and 10000 in fees penalties and restitution . I was sick to my stomach and my BP was extremely high. Mr. Munoz calmed me down he said he would fight for me. Well that's what he did. The prosecutor kept objecting to the evidence Mr. Munoz was introducing. The guy sitting next to me said I need a lawyer like that. I gave him mr. Munoz card and I believe he hired Mr. Munoz. Here comes the best part. Mr. Munoz got my case dismissed! Other attorneys where giving him thumbs up and high fives. I would recommend him to anyone that deserves a great attorney. 1000%

Legal Peace of Mind
Time and time again Attorney Munoz has saved me from the litigious, malicious nature of my ex. In times of sheer and utter despair, Attorney Munoz has alleviated any legal issues that arise, and I feel I can always count on him despite how busy he may be. Attorney Munoz is good at assessing the situation, remaining strong in the face of his opposition, and most importantly- being a fierce advocate for his clients. If you want an attorney who will genuinely go to bat for you, this is the one to hire.

Very confident yet very humble!
Mr. Munoz listened to me when other lawyers laughed at me. He inspired me and I felt at peace the stress melted away. He was prompt, kept me in the loop and explord all my options. I felt that he really cared about my case and it showed in his work. He's a busy man mistake him for the underdog and you will be sorry. After all you get what you pay for. I'm very happy and I appreciate everything he did for me. Going out of his way to make sure I knew I was a priority. I talked his ear off but he listened and treated me with respect. I got what I wanted and I will refer him to anyone looking for an honest hardworking lawyer. Within a week of hiring him and his firm my case went from 0 to 100 in no time. I've been through many lawyers and finally found the one that will get the job done.

Relentlessly
I can't say enough how much more of a better person I am since I hired Anthony. My child custody case dragged on and on for an excruciating 11 months, and Anthony was my strength throughout the entire process. His legal knowledge, and genuine concern for the best interest of my child is really what separates him from the rest. We joked that my case had been cursed since my previous attorney touched it, and it seemed to be the case for months on end. Even through the weak moments when I felt like giving up, Anthony pushed me to keep having faith and to keep fighting for my daughter. He never lost hope, he never lost his drive, and most importantly - when he could have dissipated into oblivion, is when he showed how truly relentless his drive to succeed is. He truly and genuinely cares about his clients, and their well being, and he's exceptionally communicative, giving guidance, legal knowledge and reassurance every step of the way. He fought and fought, and fought for my daughter and I and did not stop until he won. He's really a diamond in the rough of an attorney, and I almost didn't want to review him in order to keep his exceptional skills a secret.

Anthony Munoz is a lifesaver!!
I spent several months trying to resolve billing issues with my cell phone/internet provider. After several months of battling reps and managers I wasn't seeing results or being taken seriously. A good friend referred Mr. Munoz to me because he handled a similar issue for her. I contacted Mr. Munoz, and after our first conversation felt very at ease with my situation. Mr. Munoz returned my phone calls promptly, every time. Because of my odd hours Mr. Munoz made himself available in evenings for calls/meeting. Unlike my prior experiences with other local attorneys, Mr. Munoz listened to my concerns and took time to understand the entire situation. I can say he genuinely cares and fights for his clients. The issues regarding my cellphone contract and billing is now resolved. I am one-hundred percent satisfied with Mr. Munoz's actions and the results. I would gladly refer him to friends and family.

Custody/ child support
Mr. Munoz is a wonderful attorney!! He helped me gain back full custody of my kids when my original custody order had switched to temporary orders. He also helped sustain supervised visits. Not to mention he secured child support after my children's father had been refusing to pay. Mr. Munoz is more than just an attorney. He is definitely someone you can count on and confide in. He always gives me his undivided attention and never hesitates to thoroughly talk with me and ease my worries. He remains in constant contact. I never have/had to worry about getting in touch with him. If you really want someone to stand up for you, Mr. Munoz is the guy to call. He puts all of his efforts in his work, and it shows! I'm very very very lucky to have come across him and have the opportunity to have him represent me.

A loyal advocate who has your back
Choosing the right attorney in and of itself, is a daunting task. Hiring the right attorney in SLO County is a painstaking decision of choosing the best of the worst. Hiring Anthony Munoz, however can be your ultimate saving grace. This is an attorney you need on your side, and an attorney you would hate to be up against. It is common knowledge that by the time you have a need for an attorney, you're already in one of the lowest moments of your life, and trust me when I say that if you hire him you won't want any other attorney on your case. Point blank, this guy has your back. He is an aggressive advocate and most importantly, he cares about his clients and makes the time for them. That's all you can really ask for in an attorney.

Dedication on steroids
I came to Mr. Munoz in dire straits. After having been ripped off by my previous attorney who was brazenly insincere, flagrantly blasé, and simply racking up billable hours, I was fiercely skeptical of the entire legal community as a whole. Regardless of my severe apprehension, Mr. Munoz was able to melt those irrational fears through his steadfast dedication, unstoppable drive, and most of all ; insatiable commitment to win. He believed in me when nobody else did, and was always in communication with me about my case, holding my hand every step of the way. In my times of despair, Mr. Munoz showed a compassion and drive unlike anything I had seen before. His dedication, diligence, and confidence are just a small portion of the qualities that separate him from the plethora of apathetic attorneys out there. I shutter to think what could have happened with an attorney other than Mr. Munoz. Even in the face of adversity, Mr. Munoz pushed me to keep going. He was exceptionally meticulous and thorough; continually strategizing with great precision. I felt safe knowing every move he made was earnestly analyzed and precisely calculated to ensure legal triumph. If you’re lucky enough for Mr. Munoz to take your case, then rest assured you’re in the hands of someone who will not stop at anything short of winning.
