  • 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 an outstanding defense lawyer. I was arrested on trumped up charges for a DUI, but unfortunately for me there was not a lot lot of evidence to back up my side of the story. Joni knows every angle to approach a case from and successfully reduced it to a traffic violation. I thought my life was over, but Joni saved me. She is highly experienced and knows exactly how to handle a case to achieve favorable results for the client. She is outgoing and easy to talk to as well - my whole predicament was grim, with seemingly little hope, but she put me at ease right away. Additionally, her rates are very reasonable, especially considering the quality of her services as a defense attorney.

  • 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!

  • I can't recommend Joni enough. She helped me fight off five red light camera tickets that were associated with failures to appear, a traffic ticket, and got my license reinstated. I paid one flat and very reasonable fee for all of her services. I was unbelievably anxious, as I'd never even had a parking ticket, but Joni made it a comfortable experience. She is funny, smart, and confident. I felt like I was dealing with a friend. I didn't have to step into a courthouse once and I was kept in the loop every step of the way. She even sent motivational texts to me throughout the process.
