  • Joni handled my case as if it were her own. She kept me informed of the developments at every step in the process. I strongly recommend her. Unlike many lawyers, she returned my calls promptly and came up with defenses I would have never thought of. I hope I never have to hire a lawyer again, but if I do, I know who it will be.

  • Joni is who you want on YOUR SIDE! Her intelligence, dedication, willingness and upbeat personality make her the best lawyer in the San Diego area. She took the time to explain the law and details of the specific case with my elderly mother and family. 25+ years in the area/legal system give her not only knowledge and expertise but excellent connections that helped us navigate the complex legal system. Her office team is kind and willing to go the extra mile to help out! We would 100% hire her again and recommend her to anyone needing legal guidance and assistance. Joni is an A+ attorney!

  • Thank you Joni! After I was issued a red light camera ticket while my family and I where on vacation in California from New Jersey, I thought I'd have no shot at having this ticket reduced or dismissed. I did some research online and read some reviews that lead me to Joni. I'm usually skeptical when reading online reviews but I must say my feelings where wrong. I am extremely satisfied with my choice. Joni saved me points on my license and a hefty fine by fighting to have this ticket dismissed. Could have never done it myself living on the east coast. Thanks again Joni!

  • Joni is the best, I had a pretty serious case that she helped lower tremendously and I had a serious case of over overthinking things lol She has a great sense of humor and helps calm you down in the court room and when you're feeling overwhelmed. I would definitely use her again and would recommend her to others. Very compassionate and understanding to say the least

  • First of I am so grateful that I found her. The best lawyer I have ever met. I had a U ticket. Which means a point on my license. I was terrified of the consequence until I called her. She got the case on me dismissed. She charge me an reasonable rate. I recommend her if you have a traffic ticket.
