resisting arrest unwillfully
My experience with Aaron was 100% satisfactory, he was able to get the charges dropped to an infraction by proving my medical condition is the factor of the violation. Aaron is super nice, treats you like a human, and he definitely earns every penny he get's paid. I highly recommend him!

Aaron, a honest, conscientious and human approach to his clients. He works closely with his clients and is available to answer all your questions. After months of haggling with DA my case was dismissed. Thank you Aaron

Aaron is the best DUI lawyer in Central Valley!
Aaron is very professional, trustworthy and cares about his clients! He immediately made me feel comfortable and hopeful that my case would have a great outcome. Any questions I had, he was always available and/or would get back to me as soon as he was out of court. I received a DUI with a 0.085% downtown Modesto at a check point and before I met with Aaron, other lawyers kept telling me to settle for a Wet & Reckless but yet still wanted to charge me 3-5k when I'm sure I can get a Wet myself. I refused to settle and I wanted to fight it. So I found Aaron! Aaron told me that he wouldn't take my money for a Wet when I can do it myself. Immediately I knew he didn't just want my money, he wanted to help! Aaron never promised that he would get me out of a DUI but he promised to fight it the best he can. Well he did! After a whole year of fighting, my DUI charges got dropped! The man knows how to fight and look for the smallest mistakes that police officers make. He's the best!

Defended our son who was charged with domestic violence
Our son was charged with domestic violence, felony threat and possession of a firearm while on probation. Mr Villalobos did an outstanding job throughout the whole trial. His closing arguments were amazing. Final result, our son with a jury of his peers found innocent on all charges on domestic violence and threats charges even with priors. If you are looking for a dedicated and outstanding representation as well as reasonably priced attorney, we highly recommend Villalobos legal group. Thank you Aaron

Aaron Villalobos is very professional and a great lawyer. I found myself to be extremely satisfied in the way he handled my case. He knew what he was doing. Every time I stepped into court I felt confident and at ease with him there. He was always punctual and well prepared. He was straightforward and honest from the beginning. Thanks to Aaron Villalobos I received a extremely well outcome than from what I could have imagined. I would definitely recommend him.

DUI Case
Attorney Aaron Villalobos is an excellent attorney. He has helped me very much on my DUI case. Actually got the best turn out on my case by getting my case dismissed. Villalobos handled my case in a very professional manner. Every time I walked in his office he was really informant about my situation. The best of this was that Villalobos managed my case without me having to step one foot in court. I really appreciate what Villalobos and his office staff did for me. Although I hope never to step foot in his office again looking for legal help I do stand behind him and his work. Therefore I recommend Attorney Villalobos and his Law Firm to anyone who is looking for professional attorney.

Aaron is a CLASS ACT and excellent at representation!
Aaron has gone to every extreme to find every single bit of evidence to defend me! I could not be happier to have such a great attorney represent me and go to bat for me in this awkward time of my life getting a DUI. He has eliminated the stress and allowed me to go on with my life without feeling the weight of the world. He is fair, ethical, and smart! Thank you Aaron for everything you have done for me! I appreciate it greatly!

Awsome defense for a great price
Aaron Villalobos represented me in court recently on charges of DUI. He was very professional and straight forward. His staff were friendly and helpful as well. He was a little hard to get ahold of sometimes but when I needed to talk to him he would make sure he fit me in his schedule even if that meant 9pm at night. He was very insistent that I know all of my options and gave me sound advise to assist me in making my own decisions. In my case, he was relentless in pursuit of all of the facts which resulted in the charges being dismissed. I am so happy that I hired his firm.

I came back to the office in February 2015 asking Aaron to have my DUI probation terminated early. Aaron Villalobos along with his team petitioned the court to terminate the probation early and expunge the underlying conviction all at the same time. Aaron successfully won the case providing excellent customer service without charging me a penny. As a client, I evaluate Aaron Villalobos and VILLALOBOS LEGAL GROUP as a highly professional, efficient and ethical group. I would like to express a special thanks to his office manager Michael who was extremely helpful. They restored my confidence and reputation. Thank you guys!

I never write these things!!
In 2013 I was profiled and stopped by the Modesto police department. I was given a injustice DUI. I was referred to Aaron by a friend that is a detective for the police department. In 2013 Villalobos Legal Group. charged me a extremely fair one time flat rate. After 2 years and a jury trial I was never asked for any additional funds. Aaron approached my case with common sense and insertive pneus. Aaron never asked me 2 take any kind of deals, Even though the DA office dragged this on. Aaron insisted on a Jury Trial- even at he's own financial loss. While in my Trial I learned extremaly fast why he is 1 of the best attorneys out there. During my trial he was more knowledgeable then the experts the DA's office brought inn. He was quick 2 discredit any BS they tried 2-say!! It appeared he knew there job skills better then the experts brought inn "was kinda funny" Aaron went sraight 4 the throat. I recived a outcome i am happy with. And could never B more greatful towards Aaron Villalobos. I can honestly say if you dont t at least discuss your case with Aaron Villalobos your dumb.

Proficient, Consistent and Honorable
Back in July, 2013, I was pulled over and charged with a DUI. I began to research what the following steps were in order to follow through with the legal aspect of the charge against me. After on-line research and several phone calls, I was referred to the Villalobos Legal Group by another respected law firm in the area. I made a phone call to Villalobos Legal Group and was greeted by a friendly and professional staff. I set an appointment with them, which I will mention, they made themselves available to see me the next day. Upon my first meeting with Aaron Villalobos, I got a sense of comfort knowing that my case was referred to the correct firm. From day one, Aaron was very informative and straight forward with moving on with my case. From that moment on, everything was smooth sailing; from my DMV hearing to my court hearing, Aaron handled everything with proficiency and consistency. I was never left in the unknown. Any updates involving my case, Aaron and his staff always made me aware. When it came down to my case, Aaron not only had a Plan A, B, or C ready, he had many ideas on how we could or would move forward. That made me feel very at ease knowing he was really putting much effort on my case and not just "winging it" as they say. That showed me how committed Aaron is about his clients. My final court hearing was set for April, 2014. As anyone knows, you never know what to expect inside the court room, however, Aaron was prepared for the unexpected. I was very grateful and excited to hear the judge dismiss my case, thanks to the much prepared and strong efforts of Aaron Villalobos. I highly recommend Aaron Villalobos and the Villalobos Legal Group. Aaron, along with his great office staff, will always be there for you from day one!

Top Knotch representation and GREAT knowledge. Winners with great personality!
I moved from California over 7 years ago. After living in Georgia and establishing myself here, I was made aware of an old DUI/FTA from Cali. It was affecting my employment out of state and other things. I was sent to the Villalobos brothers by a trusted family member (my Dad). I was highly impressed with the efficiency and knowledge they possessed. They tackled the issues without me ever returning to California! They had the old warrant/FTA lifted in a matter of days. Their prices are reasonable and their Office Administrator (Jessica) is very helpful and informing. They worked great with the time difference and had my entire case dismissed. OTHER LAWYERS WOULD DO WELL TO STUDY THE PRACTICES OF THESE BROTHERS!! GREAT JOB GUYS!

Aaron has been amazing during this whole ordeal. I am only through my DMV hearing that was set aside from Aaron's hard work and his ability to see all the points of the case. I would never hesitate to hire him again. I kept my license and feel like Im in good hands. Team Villalobos!

The real deal
About a week ago Aaron Villalobos called me with some great news. He had said " Pedro we have great news, they dismissed the case". It was music to my ears. He was alaways on point, worked great with my schedule and always kept me well informed on the case. He was very knowledgeable and did everything possible that any lawyer should do to get evidence to help out on my case. Which was awesome, because of that and his relentless effort on helping me out, I believe they dismissed the case. Unlike other lawyers he does his best to get information and explain and keep you updated with everything that is going on with your case.

Worst attorney
Aaron Villalobos was nice when I first had a consultation with him but after he took my money he wouldn’t return my phone calls, he forgot about my court date and didn’t show up for court, so I ended up with a warrant for my arrest because of him. He was negligent and uncaring. Don’t risk hiring Aaron because you’ll end up in a worse situation.
