Mr. Haltom represented one of my sons in a co-defendant case of false allegation that involved both of my sons. I remain in total awe of this man's absolute brilliance. It is abundantly clear that he is in the right profession. His unshakable belief in our American Constitution and unfathomable retention and understanding of criminal law provides those fortunate enough to have his representation, an unparalleled defense. His commitment to his client can be clearly seen in the long, painstaking hours he pours into their defense.
He is genuine, honest, kind, confident, caring and absolutely brilliant. Our case went all the way through trial. I was amazed at the magnitude of work that went into our case. Further, all while building our defense, he was keenly attentive to this crazy mama. He kept the whole family in the loop through every facet of this case. Mr. Haltom was worth more to us than what we ever could have paid him.
Because of this man's dedication and hard work both of my sons are free to begin rebuilding their lives.
There truly are not enough words to thank him for giving my son his life back. We will be forever grateful for all that he did for us. It is our prayer that God richly bless this man for his dedication, fairness and honesty and all that he does for those who cling desperately to him. Thank you SO MUCH, Victor!

I was very nervous about my case and the charges I was facing. Mr. Haltom worked very hard on my case and having him represent me kept me at ease. He got my charges dropped and always took the time to answer any questions I would have. If you are looking for a criminal defense lawyer in the Sacramento area, I would definitely recommend the Law Office of Victor S. Haltom.

When my son was eighteen years old he was sentenced to three life terms in prison for a crime that he did not commit. And, although I have always been a little skeptical regarding the judicial process I sincerely believed that justice would prevail after listening to the judge explain the â€œjury instructions,â€ to the jury. The conviction would not be an easy one for the DA, his first attempt at trial ended just before the jury was to be sworn in because he did not have a witness. The second attempt ended in a mistrial because two of the jurors who were African American, as my son believed in his innocence. However, the DA was able to get his conviction in his third attempt my dismissing all potential black jurors.
Victor Haltom is been our Attorney and friend during some of the most difficult times of our lives. He has handled our case as if we were his only clients. He is one of the best attorneyâ€™s that I have ever met in that you know that heâ€™s on top of it when you are totally out of it. I honestly donâ€™t know where I would be right know if we had hired someone other than this man. The first day that I met Victor he assured me that he would do all that he could to win our case even if he had to take it all the way to the 9th circuit, and thatâ€™s exactly what heâ€™s done. I thank GOD everyday for blessing us with an Attorney as dedicated as Victor Haltom.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Victor is a stellar attorney! He puts everything he has into fighting for his clients. We worked together on a case defending two innocent men and Victor never backed down until both of our clients were out of jail and free. Victor is a fantastic attorney and I endorse him wholeheartedly.
