I was a client of Javier Rios in a criminal case. He is exceptionally knowledgeable, passionate and skilled as an attorney. He is also compassionate towards his clients, which is a big thing for anyone facing the crazy difficult circumstances of a criminal case against them. Oh, one thing though, he is not the cheapest lawyer in town. If you want cheap, call someone else. If you want quality and professionalism and are willing to pay for it, call this guy. I had to borrow money to hire Javier Rios. I tell you though, it was the best loan I ever took out. My mother loaned me the money and she is glad she did. I would highly recommend him.

I met Javier Rios in church. He is a good guy. So, years later, many years later, when my brother was big trouble, I called him up. I immediately thought of him to represent my brother. I was more than pleased at the results of my choice!
I am not a big fan of attorneys in general. But Javier is different. Javier is fair, honest and forthright. He represented me in a way, that if your family member was in jail, that you would pursue all means and avenues to defend their rights. I felt like Javier Rios was representing his "brother" in my case.
If you call this lawyer, you can rest assured, that you will be calling the real deal. He is a tip-top criminal defense esquire.

Mr. Rios was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and meticulous in getting my case resolved. An old friend recommended him to me. He told me, Javier was to be a tip-top trial attorney when he used to work in the public defender’s office. He was a heavy hitter for that office, representing all kinds of people in all kinds of cases. So I called Javier. Javier is a private attorney now. So now, regular people like me can hire him. If you are looking for an outstanding attorney who will work tirelessly to help you. If you want an old pro to walk you through the steps of your case, you've found him. I hired Javier Rios and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer or legal counsel.
