As an international media and public information consultant, I served as an advisor to Ms. Gutekunst on a variety of high profile legal defense initiatives.
Having observed her approach to clients, she is an extremely competent attorney with the skills and vision that can only be gained from top school training matched with decades of courtroom experience. She is a detailed researcher and an aggressive litigator who fights for the client.
Equally important, she understands the necessity of transcending the limitations of standard legal work. For cases attracting media attention or public debate, she excels in managing the public information environment to the benefit of her client. When necessary, this includes strategic engagement of the media, message development and control, and issue management to ensure accurate and relevant case related communications. I recommend her without hesitation.

Ms. Gutekunst is one of the most active attorneys on avvo. When she posts an answer, it is thorough, accurate and conveys her passion and commitment to her work. Ms. Gutekunst is at the top of my list of attorneys in the State of California to refer potential clients to. You can't go wrong picking up the phone and calling her.

I worked with Ms. Gutekunst when we were both in the Fresno County Public Defender's Office. She was always the first person I turned to when I had a question regarding both trial tactics and the law. She is one of the best criminal defense attorneys I have ever worked with.
