My personal office work is now being handled by me out of my Morgan Hill Office. However, I am available for appointments with clients at my long term (29 year) office location at 1871 The Alameda, Suite 400, San Jose, 95126. The office space is now occupied by my colleagues at the family law firm of Lonich and Patton with whom I have a long term association. After many years of handling a heavy caseload, I am now limiting the number of client matters I will accept to insure that the people I agree to represent are well served, have my full attention, and will get the most favorable outcome that can possibly be expected in their legal matters and cases. My goal is to make sure that the clients I agree to represent are a good fit, and that they receive the highest level of legal representation. I will be happy to discuss your legal problem promptly when contacted, and will either agree to reoresent you, or make a referral if I am not available. Feel free to contact me at the office or by cell, and make sure to leave a message if I do not answer. I will return the call promptly.

Guerin 'Real Deal' Provini
I worked with guerin on a relatively complex and serious case. The case dragged on for two years and Guerin represented me from the time the charge was filed, thru a preliminary hearing and all the way up until a trial readiness conference where the case was dismissed. He had taken the case over from another attorney who represented me during the pre-filing stage. Prior to hiring Guerin I consulted with just about every board certified criminal defense attorney in Santa Clara county and also another attorney who is known to be the top attorney in the area, and ultimately felt most comfortable with Guerin. Guerin is a low key guy who maintains professionalism throughout the process, and it seems obvious that he's taken seriously by the judges and DA's within the county. He responded to all of my emails and phone calls in a timely fashion, and over time I could tell he would hear me out when it came to strategizing and spit balling ideas. This to me was very important. Ultimately Guerin was able to get my case dismissed after a drawn out litigation process. He certainly was not the least expensive attorney i consulted with and some were willing to take my case for a very low flat rate, but I undoubtedly got what I paid for and am quite certain I would've regretted making a decision on price alone. Guerin and I had an hourly agreement and I have to say he's one of the few attorneys I would trust with such an arrangement, and never once did I feel he was billing the file or taking advantage of the situation. Quite honestly I would've never expected my case to become quite as costly as it did, but I have absolutely no regrets and in fact feel as though I still owe a debt of gratitude for the diligent, cautious and thorough work performed with my case. I recommend Guerin Provini to anyone facing criminal charges, and would be happy to provide more information to anyone considering hiring Guerin. Please mention DH and dismissal 2016 and I'm sure he'll know who you're talking about.

Less Stressful DUI!
Guerin is a friend of a friend of mine. I met him years ago. When my son got a DUI, he was very proactive and was able to walk him through all the details and steps to make the process less stressful. He also was extremely reasonable. I also referred a friend when her son also got a DUI and Guerin did an amazing job for them as well.

Client Review
Recommended a friend to Mr. Provini. My friend has serious legal issues involving drugs and firearms, which could have resulted in a lenthy prison sentence. As a result of Mr. Provini filing and litigating motions to supress evidence and to dismiss the charges, he was able negotiate a settlement which resulted in the dismissal of several of the allegations and a substantially reduced sentence for my friend. My friend's entire family was extremely pleased with the outcome.
