Omar is the guy you want in your corner when it comes to legal problems with cannabis. He is super knowledgable, dedicated, hard-nosed (he will get you THE best deal possible). His pricing is fair. He is also kind and thoughtful at a time when you feel most stressed out. I highly recommend him.

My faith in the California judicial system and my absolute belief in the integrity of law enforcement was shattered 6/2010 when I was arrested for delivering cannabis to medically qualified patients. I followed California state law, paid taxes, and was very up front with local politicians. None of that mattered. Solano county said "No medical marijuana here, we don't care what California state law is.". True to their word I was arrested, my husband was arrested and we came home from dinner surrounded by guys in bullet proof vests. NEVER had I been in any trouble before (I was 50 yrs old at time) and I was TERRIFIED! After much research and after speaking to a number of attorneys I decided to trust Omar and it was definitely the best decision! His education, knowledge and experience is outstanding. It took a few years to get through this mess and he was with me the whole time. Anyone who is knowlegeable of Solano County's position on MMJ, and especially in Vacaville, knows this was a very difficult battle. Thanks Omar! Hire him, you will be very glad you did!

Through two and a half years of litigation and processing, Omar Figueroa kept me informed every step of the way. In the end, my charge was reduced substantially and I was given only minor conditions that I was able to carry out very quickly. Omar and his team never lost track of me and fought through poor offers by the DA , never letting me settle for an unfair ruling. I am very indebted to Omar for getting me through my small ordeal and making me feel comfortable throughout the process.

Omar is a critical thinker with a way of finding nuggets in the nuances of the law. He is passionate about his causes and every client is a prized cause. You are in Excellent hands if you can persuade him to represent you.

Without reservation I endorse Mr. Figueroa. I opposed him on dozens of cases as a district attorney, and I have worked beside him as a criminal defense attorney in more recent times. Without fail his representation of clients facing serious criminal charges has always been exceptional. He is a gifted attorney with an uncommon dedication to the rights of his clients, especially in cases involving counter-culture or cannabis advocacy. Over the years I've seen Omar in court, my admiration for his skill and heart as a fighter have only grown. Omar is an attorney you can trust with your life. And while his caliber of attorney is rare, it's Omar's passion and compassion for his clients that makes him a true stand-out in our profession. If you're in trouble, you can do no better than to give Omar a call.
