A must see lawyer! Highy recommended.
I went to the Law Offices of Jesus Zuniga because when I was looking for a Lancaster, ca divorce attorney my friend highly recommended this office. I had very high expectations and I was impressed. My case involved custody and complicated property issues. They were professional, responsive, and always looking out for my best interest. Thank you Mr. Zuniga for finishing my matter in less than 11 months. I appreciate you working during your lunch time at court and at your office when I needed you. Like my friend, I too will send more clients your way. More people going through a divorce need to know about your office. God Bless.

Thank you!
I think the anonymous reviews are fake. I used Mr. Zuniga for a BK and it was smooth sailing. He is a young but experienced and talented attorney. Staff are great too.

Excellent, Convenient, Affordable
I was dealing with both divorce and financial hardship. My security clearance was at risk. You helped me with both and gave me payment plans. I have my job, am debt free, and don't have any stress related to my divorce. I will be forever grateful. Thank you so much.

Charismatic! Effective!
I was devastated when my husband took our children to another state without my permission. Mr. Zuniga took me in with short notice. He was easy to talk to and understanding. Your office got an emergency order in 3 days and my children were returned in a week. I now have custody of them and peace of mind. Thank you very much.

Smart, Reliable, Responsive, Patient.
I highly recommend the Law Office of Jesus Zuniga to anyone looking for a divorce or separation attorney in Lancaster Ca. Mr. Zuniga is caring, responsive, knowledgeable, and versatile. I'm a 61 year old RN so at first I though he was quite young, especially since my ex husband's attorney had 36 years experience, but Mr. Zuniga fought effectively, aggressively and tenaciously for me. Mr. Zuniga took the time to explain my options and was upfront about the risks and costs. Mr. Zuniga, you're one of the smartest attorneys I've ever met yet you are not arrogant or condescending. Please don't ever change, and stay affordable. Thank you very much.

Master Mediator and Negotiator.
I was very satisfied how your office handled my divorce matter, including my very difficult to deal with ex-wife. You have excellent mediation and negotiation skills. You asked the right questions and addressed all our concerns. Most important of all, you REALLY LISTENED to both me and my ex-wife and were able to keep our matter out of the court system. I highly recommend your office to other couples who want to get divorced without going through the hassle and expense of a highly contested divorce. Thank you.

Thanks for getting my life back on track!
I am a professional law abiding citizen. When I found my self charged with domestic violence my personal and professional world were turned upside down. I looked for a local attorney in Lancaster, CA who handles domestic violence and am thankful I found The Law Offices of Jesus Zuniga. You got the charges dismissed and helped me keep my job. I was not able to save my marriage but I'll be hiring you for my divorce as well. I hope others in need of the same service find your office. Thanks.

excellent service
Mr. Zuniga helped me with my case a while back ago. He made my life easier going through a divorce. He is very organized and very straightforward. His staff is very caring and friendly about your case. I assure you he will do his best to make your case easier and help you. Mr. Zuniga has the best patience out of all the attorneys I've been to. He helped me get through my divorce with my ex wife. I was very satisfied about the ending results . Mr. Zuniga is very experienced and will not take money out of your pocket. I've been recommending him for over a year now. Everyone who's gone to him has been satisfied with his service. He is an outstanding lawyer and I will continue to recommend him very strongly.

made my divorce easier
First off his secretary ,or underwriter dont know what they call them , was very helpful in telling me the paper work I needed, once I met with jesus he explained my process and explained everything, he also was nice enough to give me a discount, I would rather not get into the the details with my divorce other than i recommend his office
