What Others Are Saying About Arizmendi Law Firm

Google Review

"I have had the WONDERFUL pleasure of working with Ruben and his team on my bankruptcy and loan modification case and I must say that I was VERY pleased with the legal representation I received.  I met Mr. Arizmendi at several community events and went out of my way to personally find his contact information on line as they have a very strict non-solicitation policy at these events.  I then asked him to petition for a change in bankruptcy counsel so that I could have him handle my case.  My previous bankruptcy attorney was largely a "bankruptcy mill" type firm who only wanted to collect their filing file, file my case and move on to the next "sucker" who needed bankruptcy protection.  But my case did not fit their "bankruptcy mill" format because I was not just filing BK but I needed a loan modification to KEEP my home once I had the automatic stay in place.  This is where Ruben's personal attention to my COMPLETE bankruptcy, financial and legal needs came into play.  He and I crafted a strategy to keep my Chapter 13 case active while fighting for the loan modification to make sure the BK filing "had teeth" and would be successful.  With his help we negotiated a successful Chapter 13 plan modification AND a very successful loan modification that cut my mortgage payment in half (from $2800 down to $1400)!!!  I can only say THANK YOU RUBEN FOR BEING A GREAT LAWYER AND A CARING HUMAN BEING at the same time!!!  I was so impressed with his services that I immediately retained him to do my living trust which was completed just last week!  Ruben Arizmendi and his team give lawyers a GOOD name which is hard to say in these times when most attorneys are only looking for billable hours or a retainer fee and care nothing about the long term success or happiness of their clients!  Lawyers reading this review need to take a clue: Treat clients like people and apply your legal craft and you will not only have great clients but an advocate for YOU AS A PERSON and as a lawyer!  Your professional reputation is only as good as the person you are behind the JD degree!!!  I will continue to refer clients to the Arizmendi Law Firm because they really care about you and the overall success of your case!!!"

Juvenile Law

Juvenile law is a separate body of criminal law. The courts recognize that children generally do not have the capacity to make informed decisions about their behavior. As such, when children commit criminal offenses of varying degrees of seriousness, ranging from shoplifting or trespassing to something as serious as murder, these children are often treated differently in the justice system. For example, a juvenile offender may be offered a reduced penalty, an option to attend diversion programs as opposed to serving jail time, or the opportunity to expunge their criminal record upon turning 18 years old in order to avoid a permanent record. Juveniles also have specific rights under the law, including the right not to be questioned by law enforcement without permission from the child’s parents. Here you will find more information about juvenile law within the context of the criminal justice system.

Child Custody and Visitation

Custody and Visitation

When parents divorce, the divorce decree will specify with whom the children will live, and how often and under what circumstances the other parent will visit with the children. Often, parents work out these arrangements between themselves, either voluntarily or with the assistance of their attorneys or a mediator. When they are unable to reach a decision, or when unmarried parents are unable to agree on who will have custody of their child, the court may intervene and make a decision based on the "best interests of the child."
