Curt L. 5.0 Stars, 11/03/2017

“Steve was my lawyer for a very serious felony case earlier this year. He showed up at 4am while I was in jail to brief me on how to get out. He not only got me out, but got me the best possible deal. I Was facing 15 years prison and I got 30 days house arrest. He knows his stuff and will fight for you because he cares.”

Mr. Whitworth is everything you need if your looking for an attorney. You really don’t have to worry about a thing. He got me the best deal. I almost lost my Ca firearms card and was looking at jail time. He broke it down to ware I was able to keep my license, and not do any jail time. He didn’t ask for a lot of money he was very affordable with price, and he got the job done. He’s not all about the money he has a very good heart. Thank you Mr. Whitworth for your time and your professionalism.

“I had gone to Mr. Whitworth for my defense case, this case ended up in trial. And we’ll we won. So I’m thankful of having him as my attorney and I would definitely go back to him. But what I can tell you about him and why I would suggest you to contact him and his colleagues is because they are truly interested in you and the situation for what it is. That’s what I felt when I went to them for help. I had been shopping around and most of the attorneys I met before him didn’t give me the confidence I was looking for. Even though I didn’t meet him in person right away I was able to talk to him on the phone and he gave me a good impression and like I said his colleagues were just the same when I went to his office they were polite, kept up with my caseI and handled everything like professional. I can definitely say Steve Whitworth has a great team and is a real player in the court room. It feels good to have the weight off my shoulders. Whatever your issue is, I suggest you to give a call to this team. Thank you Steve Whitworth and to your colleagues for being here for me.”
