I don't have enough good things to say about Mr Nakano.
I was falsely accused of a serious crime which could have cost me my career. In my case I was up against a cop that was blatantly lying about what he was told happened, and a less than ethical DA who ignored evidence and tried to bully me into a plea deal for a crime I had not committed.
Mr Nakano put a stop to all of that at trial. He ate them alive.
It was a thing of beauty to see him in action. By the time Mr Nakano was done with them, I walked out a free man with my head held high.
Innocent until proven guilty really doesn't exist, so you better make damn sure you have a good attorney if you want to survive the modern day American judicial system.

I consider myself extremely blessed to have been represented by Steven Nakano. I have been represented by him in several cases, and I highly recommend him. On my last case in 2012, I was facing very serious charges, and he made miracles happen through his investigative and legal work. He was very attentive and responsive of my needs regarding my case and he was also very good at communicating with my family. I have seen other attorneys who are always late, or miss court appointments all together. Other attorneys also seem to only worry about money, not this one. Mr. Nakano really goes above and beyond for his clients. He literally accomplished what I thought to be impossible to help me with my legal matters. He even worked hand in hand with my immigration attorney to ensure my legal status in the country would not be affected. Mr. Nakano is a very trustworthy and wise individual. He is very well respected in the courtroom and he always knew how to deal with situations. While I was in custody going crazy, during one of my interviews with Mr. Nakano, he thought me some great breathing and meditation techniques which were very helpful in maintaining my sanity. In conclusion, I strongly recommend Mr. Nakano for anyone facing the unfortunate situation of having to go before a judge.

I've known Mr. Nakano for many years now. I 've had friends he's represented in the past. Now he is currently working on a case for me. Because of Mr. Nakano reputation with the courts he was able to convince the judge to give me and his recommendations an opportunity to make a difference in my life today. Because of Mr Nakano and the program he advised me to get into ( Amicus house ). Iam actually learning how to live life on life's terms. Something I could never do on my own. Not just is he a great attorney he genuinely cares for his clients. And speaking from experience this is very hard to find in this county. I've had many attorney's. Never have I met one like Mr Nakano. He has gone way out of his way to help me. Not just in my current case but in my life. Because of the program he recommended iam learning so many tools to go on and live life as I was intended to live it. A healthy responsible active member in the community. And I owe this all to Mr. Nakano. To me he is more than my attorney he is family.... Thank you for everything you have been a true inspiration in my life thank you..... Do I recommend him as an attorney ? YES IN DEED.....

Few lawyers fit the title "counselor" as well as Steven Nakano. My personal experience with Mr. Nakano is that he will gladly and enthusiastically spend the time and effort to help and support you. For me, Mr. Nakano was a mentor when I was first beginning my career in criminal law not so long ago. He is a pillar of the criminal defense community and you could not ask for a more dedicated or experienced lawyer to represent you.
