This man is by far the best criminal attorney in town. He really, really, helped me with my case. He knows what talks about and he keeps his promises. I wouldn't hire anyone else. Highly recommended!

Javier Rios was so easy to work with. He returned my calls. He kept me advised of what was going on with my case. He explained everything to me and got a great result. I would recommend him to anybody looking for a criminal lawyer.

Mr Rios took my sons very difficult case and exceeded all of our expectations. He truly is a man that knows what he is doing and has the passion and drive making him the ultimate best. Mr Rios worked tirelessly to ensure that my son got a second chance to succeed in life and I will forever be grateful.

When I met Attorney Javier Rios I was immediately impressed by his calm manner and courtesy. . roughly quoting Maya Angilou ... “people may forget what you said, but they will not forget how you made them feel". Although it was late in the day, Mr. Rios gave us his devoted and uninterrupted time. He patiently listened to our worries, fears, opinions surrounding the case against our daughter and when we started tripping over each other so in a hurry to tell him the reason why our daughter was worth saving, while venting our anger at the “system”, expressing confusion and concern wondering what was going to happen –Mr. Rios was ATTENTIVE and PRESENT. When we veered off “into the swamp” of needing to know “why this happened” and “fault finding” He was able to bring us back focusing on the goal – keeping our daughter out of jail. His demeanor did not convey boredom or superiority. He listened, asking questions in such a way you knew his focus was on us.. this family sitting in front of him who, were feeling terrified of the thought of our daughter jailed. We met Mr. Rios in San Jose having traveled from SoCal. After we figuratively "regurgitated" our stress in his office, Mr. Rios spoke to each of us. He did not give us “pat” answers, but addressed our concerns with ..knowledge and intelligence. He outlined what he heard from us acknowledging he heard us completely with understanding. After our initial meeting, he had made inquiries. and was able to share new information. However, he did not try and sell himself to us -for hire.. on the contrary, he gave us information in the event we were to decide to not use the services of an attorney. When you find yourself in a situation where your young daughter is about to be incarcerated ..you feel the world is stacked against her,,your mind is muddied.. cloudy, you are exhausted from worry and fear. Mr. Rios was able to bring clarity a bit o peace- by providing us with good understanding of what was ahead for our girl. He did not make “pie in the sky” or false promises but was very honest and transparent as to where there would be “bumps” on our journey and openly able to share when we should be aware of a possible "concern", kept us jointly informed and always allowed the existence of Faith and Hope. I and my ex husband found Mr. Rios mindful and respectful of our time realizing we are a paycheck to paycheck family with unfamiliar travel expenses and attorney fees. We knew attorney “time = money” - IT IS TRUE -you get what you pay for...... He is not a “bargain basement” attorney, BUT HE IS HONEST AND FAIR more than worth his fee and he worked with us helping cut costs where possible - we knew our situation called for the Best professional when he agreed to represent her we put our FAITH and her FATE into Mr. Rios hands. His attention to detail, intel, knowledge of the courts, the law, circumstances involved, and his ethics, trustworthiness are above all expectations. We quickly realized this fee was WORTHY of the recipient our daughter was and is in excellent hands.
Mr. Rios' communication style is above reproach he is very responsive- emails or calls never go unanswered if unable to respond immediately - he will inform you when to expect to hear from him. When news was not good he did not sugar coat it but gave it to us w/ corresponding strategies to improve outcome- explanations and strategies are well thought out – clear. Mr. Rios is a Gentleman. He does not waste your time with trivia he knows how to provide appropriate empathy to calm your anxiety. His peers are respectful to him in court, he is courteous to all, clerks, law enforcement and other attorneys. He's quick to applaud the skills, talents and knowledge of his peers. He is a man of wonderful character. Attorney Rios met us as individuals - by the end of the initial meeting we were a team -as we approach the end of this journey he is part of our collective family. Awesome skilled, Excellent attorney.

Word's can't express how pleased we are on the amazing results obtained in my husband's complex cases. Javier Rios is a highly experienced criminal attorney. He is highly respected and maintains excellent rapport with the judges, DA, peers and clients.
During our first meeting listened carefully, explained the legal system, took notes and copied documents. He was honest and genuine regarding my husband's cases. Within the week had a second meeting, because he wanted to conduct his personal research and gather additional facts. Mr. Rios is knowledgeable, experienced and felt strongly on a positive outcome, but he explained and we understood no outcomes are guaranteed (comes with the territory). We had several meetings in his office.
We would communicate by phone, text or e-mail we mutually responded to one another. He worked on my husband's cases in the evenings, weekends and holidays.
Javier Rios was very dedicated and meticulous in preparing the motions on my husband's behalf. He would e-mail the drafts, welcome any feedback and make necessary changes. His work ethics are remarkable, perseverance and tenacity is amazing, an exemplary advocate. He exceeded himself by going more than an extra mile. Mr. Rios hard work resulted in DISMISSAL on all cases!
My husband and I will be forever grateful for the excellent professional representation and support.
I highly recommend Javier Rios to anyone. A passionate advocate!

Mr.Rios was the best attorney ever! He was so at tentative and determined to get me the best outcome possible for my case. I was so nervous going into court but Javier is so professional and calming that he made everything seem like it was going to be ok. He is also so honest and has a genuine good heart, which is very rare among lawyers. I am so grateful to have found him randomly over the Internet one day, I know that if I ever have any legal issues every again I would call him and no one else! I recommend him to everyone I know.

I was very fortunate to receive Mr. Rios as an attorney under the 3 strikes law. His approach, preparation, dedication, communication, and experience was without question the best I've ever experienced. By any standard Mr. Rios is an excellent attorney.

Javier Rios did an amazingly good job as my Public Defender. He cared about me and that made a huge difference. He always told me "I believe in you" and it showed. He was a pit bull in court. He dug in and never gave up. He filed motions. Harassed the court. Objected to (almost) everything. Showed infinite patience. Never gave up. Dragged everything on, till the opposing counsel threw a temper tantrum and walked out.
Oh! We won. Actually Javier Rios won. He shouldered me along for the ride.
I whole heartedly recommend him as an attorney and will always be grateful to him.
