Today I got some good news...I and I just want to thank God...for his flavor he has given me.Someone I knew told me I should always get me a lawyer for any situation I happened to get my self into...something his mama always told him.Well a few months ago I happened to get a speeding ticket in California clock At 62 in Yreka California in the snow...speed is 45 during bad road conditions especially in the snow. There was no way out of this ticket..So this person.Mike Bgood...looked up a lawyer in Yreka California for me.His name Attorney William Marino Duncan.Well you all my driving record isn't the greatest...a matter of fact it horrible...and at the time I was the only one working in the family...so yes I hired a lawyer.Mr William Marino Duncan .I explained to him my situation...it was hard time I was in and out of JOBS...Some of the bosses didn't pay me so working for free ...and some other financial problems I had.So I wasn't exactly in a good financial shape I was behind in bills... and just started getting back on track. I just started working back with my old boss whom I currently working for today...I also explained to him that if I get one more ticket and another point on my Class A license it would be suspends.So all this I explained to Mr William.and he was find with me making payments arrangement he also lower his attorney fees.Another huge blessings.Today he text me while I was driving in Texas traffic. I opened up the text and it read Cecilia Garcia your citations in court has been dismissed and there for no fees or Points hence further.... I'd screamed out loud and lifted up my hand yelling out thank you Jesus with tear in my eyes and almost hitting the truck in front of me
(oh my goodness)...so this testimony that I'm sharing is to say that I give God the praise and the Glory and I THANK God for his goodness his mercy and His grace ...I may not be where I need to be in the Lord today but .. like my mama Petra Ortiz use to always say don't worry I got God on my side His is a Good God And I thank him for being my heavenly father and taking care of me and my family and you all.God bless each and every one of you all In Jesus name THANK Mr.William Marino Duncan

I called Bill to represent me after I was arrested in Yreka and charged with two felonies and two misdemeanors (3 charges related to controlled substance). Two of the charges ended up being dismissed, one charge was pled down to an infraction and the last was a misdemeanor that was dismissed after completing a diversion plan. Ending up with an infraction and the three other charges dismissed means I can continue on with my life and not worry about a huge mistake haunting me for the rest of my life. I owe a lot to Bill and would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone seeking an experienced, professional and results driven criminal defense attorney.

Mr. Duncan did an outstanding job representing me in a case that was dragged out over two years. My case was particularly stressful and he helped me deal with the matter in the best way possible. I am extremely thankful to have had a great attorney represent me in court.

I am a family law and estate planning attorney. I often have clients that request referrals for criminal law attorneys. I include Bill on my referral list. I have found Bill to be an excellent criminal law attorney with a great deal of experience. The clients I have referred to him have been very pleased with his services. He is able to clearly communicate with clients and obtain favorable outcomes for them.

Bill Duncan is a very experienced and competent criminal defense attorney. Although I am an experienced civil litigation and transactional attorney, I do not practice in the area of criminal defense. I feel confident, however, in referring any inquries I receive in this area to Bill's capable hands.
