THE BEST LAWYER FOR YOUR CHILD’S CASE
I am a retired attorney. Over the past thirty years, I have known or worked with over 100 attorneys. When my son was accused of DUI with drugs, I called my most trusted attorney friends. They all referred me to McGlinn & McGlinn. They treated my son with compassion and respect. Due to their never ending hard work, my son’s case was ultimately dismissed. This was an extremely difficult case as that my son’s blood tested positive for marijuana and xanax. Both Mike McGlinn and his son Ryan McGlinn worked as a team to represent my son. They are also the most reasonably priced juvenile lawfirm in town-and the most important thing – THEY ARE RESULTS ORIENTED!!

EXCELLENT SERVICE AND PROFESSIONAL REPRESENTATION
We were referred to McGlinn & McGlinn by the Lawyers Referral Service in San Diego, CA. We contacted the McGlinn office late on a Friday. Ryan was actually on vacation but returned my call within a couple hours. We needed help in defending our niece in a juvenile matter. He not only kept in touch throughout his vacation but began forming our defense and preparing our niece for the upcoming hearing with only a couple days lead time. His expertise in juvenile law and the way he handled our case really put our family at ease throughout the proceedings. We can recommend Ryan and his firm without reservation. His attention to our needs were superb. His work on our case was exemplary, always available to us and prepared for what was needed and beyond that Ryan was always fair and honest in his billing. We highly recommend Ryan and his firm.

COMPETENT, GREAT ATTORNEY
Ryan McGlinn was recommended to me by a well know law firm in Los Angeles to handle my domestic abuse case. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without Mr. McGlinn. I filed for divorce from my husband of only a year and ten months and was moving out when suddenly and unknowingly he accused me of hitting him, which was a false statement. He filed a police report and a temporary restraining order and I was served by a Sheriff at my new home. It was the scariest thing I have ever encountered in my whole life. I called Ryan McGlinn late on a Friday evening and he answered the phone himself as he was working late. From that point on, he worked tirelessly on my case for a whole month. He was able to go before the judge himself and was granted a temporary restraining order on my behalf against my husband. I was working and unable to go to court myself. Mr. McGlinn was very compassionate and at the same time, very competent. He did not make me feel bad about any question I asked him. When I emailed or called him, he was very prompt in getting back to me. I never had to wait long for any answers, which is very important when experiencing anxiety like I was at this time. He knew the law very well and had experience in handling domestic abuse cases. His writing skills are excellent and accurately expressed. He did not judge me in any way and answered my many questions very professionally. He even worked on a Saturday to accomodate my schedule. My case was settled in court in a very nonthreatening way. Ryan knows how to talk to the judge and it is obvious he has a lot of experience in the courtroom. I am so grateful that this restraining order is not on my permanent record,as justice was served. I would recommend Ryan McGlinn for any and all cases he specializes in.

WORLD CLASS ATTORNEY
I am a recovering alcoholic who has had too many arrests to even count. Mr. Mcglinn is one of the best attorneys I have ever seen. He won two motion to suppress hearings dismissing two dui arrests entirely. He won 1 dmv hearing outright ( almost impossible to do) and won the 2nd on appeal. As a criminal lawyer he will leave no stone unturned. If there is anything wrong with the arrest , lack of probable cause, labwork , improper paperwork, he will find it. I refered a friend he had their case dismissed too . The officer said the windows were tinted which they were not. Mr. Mcglinn proved the officers statements were incorrect , the judge dismissed. I would have lost my job and gone to jail if not for the Mcglinns. Whole family are attorneys 3 for the price of 1!!!!!!!!! If you want an attorney with proven results who truly wants to win and is HUNGRY you found your man.

WE BEAT THE ODDS WITH RYAN McGLINN
We called Ryan on a referral, desperate for help in a tangled web of lies, errors and extenuating circumstances. This was a juvenile dependency case, we were foster parents who had had our baby since birth and now she was almost a year old. Every social worker, attorney and court clerk we talked to said this was a very unusual case. We were scared to death the paternal family was now going to get custody and we would lose her. Ryan was straight with us and let us know our chances were slim, but to not give up. He was very hands on, kept in close contact by phone or by email, he was on time, and was always prepared. He offered the court detailed points/authorities and strong arguements. We WON our case (based on best interest for the child) and I don’t think we would have without his representation.

THEY GOT ME ON THE RIGHT TRACK
As long as I was true to myself…
These lawyers gave me the compassion and the devotion to justice. Father and son complimented each otherto get the job done and to get my life back on track. They made me believe in myself.
Hopefully I will never need their help again for something like this matter… But for someone in great need for a lawyer I give my thanks and deep appreciation.

GREAT JUVENILE CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY
I chose Mr. McGlinn after looking at his firm’s website; unlike others that were very sensational, his was serious and informative. My son was involved in a juvenile criminal matter, and Mr. McGlinn handled it expeditiously. We did everything he recommended, and got the best possible result (case was sent to Diversion, without having to go to Court). Mr. McGlinn’s experience and knowledge were invaluable. Very honest, very forthright, very trustworthy.

EXCELLENT HUMAN ATTORNEY
I worked with this gentleman for a couple of years in a very difficult case, involving my two daughters. He has changed my view and considerations for attorneys. I now see there are still good attorneys, like Mr. McGlinn, who are professional, human, trustworthy and HONEST ! His son and wife are also a GREAT complement for his team. I can ONLY say GOOD things about his firm.

Thanks! We appreciate the knowledge, advice and understanding that you graciously provided even during the times we were distraught and less than gracious in return. You answered an endless stream of questions. You listened to arguments that opposed your advice with patience.

Thank you for your time and expertise. Your demeanor was perfect as you carefully led John down a path allowing him to see the flaws in his logic from the eyes of a third party not tainted by the bias of parenthood. Beyond your legal expertise, your interaction with John was well worth every penny. It was a valuable learning experience for me as well, legally and spiritually. You have restored my faith in human nature. Thank you again …

Words cannot express how grateful we are for your representation. This whole experience was such a nightmare but now that John is home all is right with the world! There are not many people who would take on a case such as ours being two moms and the barriers we were up against and fight as hard as you did for us, but you did … Thank you for bringing our son back into our lives!

Thank you again for your help with … case. You represented him in an excellent fashion … As before, if you ever need a reference for your services or have a client’s parents who would like to discuss our situation and how it turned out, please send them my way.

I wish to thank you for the professional, responsible and caring way that you handled the matter involving our son. It was clear from the first that you are not only skilled in legal matters but, more importantly, you have an understanding of young people and a sincere desire to help them. It is heartening to know that there is at least one attorney who comes from the heart. You are truly a credit to your profession.

Let me express my appreciation for your patience, persistence, logic, centeredness and detachment throughout this entire ordeal. Thank you for taking this case, believing me, being loyal and most of all allowing me to trust a male attorney again.

~ ~ ~

I was thoroughly impressed with your tenaciousness in defense of the family, and feel that you deserve every bit of credit from everyone for this victory. Should I ever require the services of an attorney, I would come to you. To me this is significant; I work for approximately 28 attorneys who do criminal work on a regular basis, and I like to think that many of them are high caliber counselors. Still, your tenacity, integrity and skill impressed me throughout the entire experience.

~ ~ ~

Thank you for all you’ve done. I hold you in high esteem for your for forwardness in the way you counseled me.
