Client Testimonials

  • "Unquestionably the best defense trial attorney in the Sacramento area. His record speaks for itself!!"
    I was facing two felony charges involving using a weapon while committing a battery. If convicted of a felony or accepting a plea bargain for a lessor charge of a misdemeanor, I would have lost all California licensing in my career of 25 years. I was clearly in serious legal trouble. Attorney Gonzales confronted the DA prosecution team very aggressively and thoroughly, while keeping me advised of progress every step of the way. His fees were nery reasonable and he offered a payment plan. All charges were eventually dismissed by the District Attorney's office., I believe primarily due to the aggressive defense he presented. My life is now back to normal thanks to attorney Gonzales and his team. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone facing serious legal charges.

  • "Absolutely the best DUI Attorneys, hands down."
    I went through a very bad DUI in May of 2018 and immediately contacted J. Gonzales. Jonathan, Brandon, and Amy worked tirelessly to get me a sentence that was extremely fair and definitely much better than I would have faced with any other attorney. I knew exactly what to do and expect during the entire process and they have continued to be helpful with my questions even after their contractual obligation had ended. If you or anyone you know is seeking the absolute best representation then the fine folks at J Gonzales are the only ones to contact.
    - Very Satisfied Client
  • Brandon was responsive, understanding, and took the time to thoroughly explain to me what could happen, what my options were, and how he could help.
