Very smart, professional and gets the job done.
We were referred to Leslie by another lawyer we were working with. I spoke with Leslie often as we engaged her to work on my brother in law's case. My brother in law doesn't speak English very well and my sister was confused and nervous dealing with any legal issues, so I often reached out to Leslie for updates. She was very professional and responded back quickly. My brother in law was in a bad situation due to a terrible trucking accident. Fortunately, Leslie was able to defend him the way he needed and he was able to complete community service. Leslie was there for us every step of the way and my brother in law is truly grateful to her as we all are.

Reliable, Experienced, Communicative
Leslie was able to aggresivly negotiate a no jail plea deal after multiple prior convictions. From the time I hired Leslie she was very communicative which I consider very important. I highly reccomend this individual for any legal matters.

Highly Reommended Attorney
I highly recommend Ms. Ramos. We retained about 2 months ago for a criminal issue that was pending. Within these 2 months she managed to lift a warrant, get a court hearing date and got the best deal to close the case. She is talented, educated and flexible with clients’ requests. She communicated with us, even out of office hours. She is HIGHLY recommended! She will be my number one choice if another matter presents itself or with the people around me. Glad I encountered her on Avvo! She is an outstanding person.

Unfortunat family mix up, but justice prevailed
Working with Leslie was gave us a piece of mind, she was easy to communicate with , easy to work with and understanding , understanding the situation we were able to provide as much evidence as we could with no guarantee in the end. With a possibility of getting 3 years jail time for unfortunate family situation was a mind blowing thought. In the end through the stress and many prays justice was served Thanks you Leslie

Amazing lawyer
She is an amazing attorney. Always available for any questions and was able to get me the deal I wanted to avoid trial after an unreasonable DA was offering excessive punishment. I highly recommend her and will definitely use her in the future although I hope to never have the need for a lawyer again. Also better priced then 15 + other lawyers I talked to

I just love love her.
My 19 yr old son was arrested and was charged with a few felonies, which had up to a 5 yr prison sentence because he had a prior. Leslie stayed in contact with both he and i. She visited him in jail and advised us with every step. She represented and fought for him as if he were her family. I am so thankful that she represented my son and believed in him. My son will be released next month. He will be starting school in June and she wants us to stay in contact with her for any references/docs he need for school or future achievements. She even wrote him after court was complete (which she is not common) to check on him. She is definently worth every penny.

DUI Case - Leslie is excellent and honest!
Leslie is a great attorney, I reached out to her with a phone call and she answered all my questions as thorough as possible, and did a great job giving me a realistic idea of what to expect. She is prompt with any follow-ups, a very responsible, and hardworking attorney! Leslie takes her job very seriously, and is totally considerate about all concerns that I had. I hope to never need her services again but I would recommend her 100%.

The Lawyer to keep you from doing time you didn't commit!
Leslie Ramos defended my rights, because she believed in me, and knew the truth of my situation. I was made out to be a monster for crimes I did not commit, and Leslie met me before she took my case, to determine whether I really did what I was accused of doing. There's always another side to the story, no matter what. And Leslie Ramos knows that. When she realized that I was being prosecuted purely for the Sacramento DA's reelection, and that there was no direct evidence, even no solid circumstantial evidence, she knew I was innocent. Even with national news against me, she fought tooth and nail for me, because she believed in me. Leslie Ramos is the only lawyer who would fight like that for me, no other prominent lawyer would, and it is because of her that I am out to do what I've been doing since coming to Sacramento; participating in organizations that donate towards both Veterans and Orphans, making sure they are clothed. If you facing unjust charges like I was, I implore you to hire Leslie Ramos, so that she will ensure justice is served, in a system that tries to prosecute even the innocent. Thank you, Leslie Ramos. You will forever be my hero.

Leslie is a pro!
I consider myself lucky that Leslie represented me, and helped me all the way through the trial. She is smart, dedicated, and a true professional. I am very thankful that she is able to help my family through this challenging time. She is also very good at explaining the process along the way, and this really helped alleviate a good deal of stress we were feeling. You are lucky to have her on your side.

Exteemly Intelligent and Well Prepared
My son was attacked by three musicians and two of their groupies and defended his friend after they attacked his friend. It was a highly publicized case because the alleged victims later posted social media falsely accusing him of assault with a deadly weapon and making homophobic slurs, leading to a knee jerk reaction of the DA to re-arest him and charge him with hate crimes. Leslie pointed out all the discrepancies between what the alleged victims told the police, their medical records and their testimony in trial after seeing the surveylance video which was at the location. The pro-DA judge disallowed much of the evidence which would have made it obvious to the jury that my son was innocent. Nevertheless the jury is hung enabling us to continue fighting if necessary. She is amazing, concise and gets to the key issues quickly. Our family respects her and recommends her highly. Greg

my first time hiring a lawyer
Leslie did everything she said she would do for me. I was charged with a felony but she worked it out where I received a misdemeanor that I can get off my record in two years. I never hired a lawyer before but it was worth it. I have know idea what would have happened if I didn't.

Potential felony Hit & Run
Leslie is thorough, commited, and an excellent communicator. She took my case on a Sunday, made initial contacts with the CHP officer running my case, and followed up and followed through to completed resolution with the DA. It took well over 6 months to resolve and Leslie explained all my options along the way and was exceptional at keeping me informed and pushing my case to the lowest possible resolution. End results were a fine and a ticket. She worked with me on reatiner fees and representation payments that were fair and achievable. I highly recommend Leslie and keep her contact infromation close on hand for refernces to others. She is my #1 defense attorney in Sacramento.

Wonderful Attorney
Leslie was ultra-professional and very helpful throughout. She responded immediately to any/all questions or actions throughout the process. She successfully got one felony reduced to a misdemeanor and was able to get a sentence modification done on the charge I was in custody for, so I could rejoin my family in San Jose under private monitoring. I couldn't recommend her more highly.

Amazing Lawyer
I was very nervous when I ran into legal trouble recently, especially since I was innocent of any crime. I met with Leslie and she was such a tremendous help. Not only was she successful on getting the hold off my bail, she also managed to get all of my charges dropped! She was such a huge help to me in such a stressful time, she always would keep me informed and make sure all of my questions were answered. I can't recommend her enough!
