So maybe you have little to no contact with law enforcement, or maybe you get harassed everyday by your local neighborhood copper. There are several things that everyone should know when making contact with police, whether you get pulled over, stopped at a checkpoint, or contacted on
After a 5 day trial we are happy to report that the jury verdict is in and it is not guilty on all counts. Assault with a Deadly Weapon causing great bodily injury (PC 245a) NOT GUILTY. Corporal Injury on a Spouse Causing great bodily injury, (PC 273.5) NOT GUILTY.
The path only tells the journey, but the adventure tells the story...
I don't know where to start, I was lost, confused and helpless all at the same time until Andrew took my case. I went to court with the hope that everything was going to be dropped and it was a simple mistake. How surprise was I to know I was being charged with two felony counts for DV and assault/bodily injury to my LYING ex-spouse(now). Well I had a meeting with Andrew and from DAY 1 he reassured me it was a solid case for a NOT GUILTY verdict or dismissal because the factual bases of the incident was ignored by the police that two men where fighting and instead the police took me base upon the brotherly love of my ex and and his connection to bond with fellow military individuals(let's keep it simple) it's not about that. It's about Andrew stood in there by my side for 14 long months and on February 27, 2014 @ 13:37pm all charges was dropped on a NOT GUILTY verdict. I have recommend his Firm to every friend I know. Trust me he is a man of his word and he will stand side by side through it all.

"My wife and I were very happy with Mr. Flores’ services. He acted quickly and was very accommodating to our needs in the situation. Andrew Flores handled our pre-file domestic violence case in a limited time frame; it was a toss-up whether the prosecutor would press charges, but through Mr. Flores’ skill, expediency and persistence the charges were dropped.
After meeting and speaking with Andrew we were assured that he would take our case as far as necessary to get favorable results. Throughout the process Andrew was very forthcoming with information. Andrew was knowledgeable and he walked us through all the steps in the process and was open to suggestion.
We feel his service was excellent and found Andrew to be very personable and thoughtful. Unlike many lawyers, Andrew is not a snob, he is not dismissive and doesn't talk down to people and insult their intelligence. Andrew is a down-to-earth attorney with a fresh tenacity and it is clear he is less concerned about making as much money as possible and more concerned with being a servant of the people in need. In a rough time, having an attorney who is responsive and willing to be flexible to obtain the best results is extremely comforting."

"I highly recommend Mr. Flores to anyone facing criminal charges of any sort. I was going to be pulled over for a speeding violation on my motorcycle when I made a huge mistake and decided to outrun the police instead of pulling over, I quickly came to my senses but the damage had already been done.
I have been in the military for over eight years, my wife and I just bought a new home where we are raising our son together. The felony charge I was facing would have jeopardized my career which would have potentially caused us to lose our house and completely alter all of our future plans.
After bringing Andrew in, I was able to be released from custody, even when the prosecutor assigned to the case insisted that I was a flight-risk and that I should be kept in custody until my first court hearing. Not only was I released from custody and onto base, a short time later Andrew convinced the judge to let me go home to be with my wife and son until the case was resolved.
Andrew was able to explain to the judge the facts and circumstances of my case, how I had no significant criminal record, and he successfully argued that the punishment I was facing did not fit the crime I committed. Andrew was able to convince the judge to knock my felony charge down to a misdemeanor which helped save my position. This was all despite the District Attorney’s zealous objections because as he put it "the DAs office takes running from the police very seriously". In sum, Andrew is a life-saver."
