Above and beyond
They were totally Awesome!!!. I was sentenced to alternative sentence but even after Sac Sheriff told me they will not allow me to transfer my alternative sentencing to Orange County and that I would either have to do my alternative sentencing in sacramento or turn myself in. They took my case and brought back up and had went back infront of judge to fight to get me what I wanted even though sac sheriff wouldn't allow it they made it happen. Now I can keep my apartment and job in orange county... Thanks for everything! You guys went above and beyond for me and I really appreciate it! Thank you so much!!

Jon Gonzalez and his legal staff are amazing!!!
Jon Gonzalez and his staff are amazing....they were very helpful and very responsive during my stressful situation. Jon and his team always appeared on my behalf and when the time came to face the DA and Jury Mr. Gonzalez fought for me and my rights!!! Not only did Mr. Gonzalez fight for me and my rights he fought for the truth and Won!!! If you need a dedicated and experienced attorney in Criminal Law I highly recommend Jon Gonzalez and his team!

Excellent Criminal Defense Attorney
Jon Gonzales is by far the most honest, intelligent, and ethical lawyer I've ever met. He reviewed my case with me for free and even helped me make a decision on what the best course of action would be for my specific needs. He ended up challenging the DA to trail and the day before my trial the DA dismissed my case! This only happened because Mr. Gonzales was willing to fight for my case in court; I recommend him to anyone needing criminal defense representation.

Superior Legal Representation
Jonathan was very responsive to any questions I had. He knew the law really well and he showed that he not only cared about my case, but my concerns as a person. Without Jonathan's diligent representation and knowledge, I know my case would not have resulted in a successful outcome. I would definitely recommend him and use him in the future.

A job well done
I was charged with a DUI and advised by a number of attorneys that I should just plead out. Mr. Gonzales took the time to go over the police report with me and noticed some triable issues. He set the case for trial and the District Attorney ended up dismissing the case. Without Mr. Gonzales I would have been convicted of a DUI. Mr. Gonzales is a hard working attorney who knows how to get aggressive with the District Attorney. I cant thank him enough for helping me get my case dismissed!!! I reccomend this attorney

The Right Lawyer, Hands Down
I want to thank Jonathan Gonzales and Tower Legal for helping my family through a very difficult time. My son got into trouble and he was facing some serious charges. I found Tower Legal Group on the internet and sent an email. Jonathan called and met with us even on a holiday. He was very professional and supportive from the beginning. We were scared and didn't know what to do. Jonathan explained everything to us in ways we could understand. He guided us through the entire process and never left us hanging or wondering what might happen next. He returned all my phone calls, even if I called on the weekend. I can't thank him and his partner James enough for their help and compassion. We are extremely grateful for everything they have done for us. I would definitely recommend Jonathan and Tower Legal Group to everyone. You won't find a better lawyer anywhere else. Thank you, Jonathan.

Worst Legal "Help" Imaginable!
We Paid Mr Gonzales and retained him for two upcoming cases. We provided him all the research and evidence needed to easily prove innocence and even requested specific actions/motions be filed. He did nothing. After over 6 months he still knew nothing about our case and was completely arrogant and rude. He continued out court dates against our wishes and provided zero advice. Then he weaseled his way out of representing us and kept all of the money! He knows little more than how to elbow rub with his old cop pals. Don't waste your money or even worse...your time by hiring this "Lawyer". Even his office staff were embarrassed by his lack of professionalism! Better of with a public defender.

Unprofessional
Jonathan Gonzales is hands down the WORST lawyer. Met him once when I retained him and that was it. Never heard from him again. He passed me off to someone else at his office and gave me the worst experience ever. Bad enough I had a case but his unprofessionalism was the cherry on top. Beware. Stay away from him.
