San Clemente There's No Alternative

San Clemente Criminal Attorneys

Known for its ocean hills, mountain views, and beautiful climate, few people dislike San Clemente and the surrounding area, unless they have been on the receiving end of a San Clemente police officer. Too often, local officers interact aggressively with those committing minor offenses, sometimes engaging in questionable police work to conduct a search and obtain evidence. While the majority of the community believes that this is their tax dollars being put to good use, those facing charges experience a violation of their rights that can result in harsh penalties and unforgiving fines. Without proper legal defense, those facing charges can be railroaded by authorities and prosecutors into a case outcome that is anything but favorable.

At the Law Offices of Randy Collins, our coastal criminal attorneys know that just because you have been charged with a crime does not mean that you are guilty. There are two sides to every story and you can count on our attorneys to work tirelessly to expose any flaws in the prosecution’s case that could lead to a case dismissal or not guilty verdict. Call us today to find out how you can put yourself in a position to avoid costly mistakes and find out what options you have available.

    Best Criminal Defense Attorney"
    I could not be more grateful or complimentary of how Randy handled my case, as well as the easy communication and genuine care for my well-being. I could not recommend Randy more.
    "Caring and Genuine Attorney"
    I called the office and right off the bat, I was super impressed at how much help I was receiving without even meeting in person. Chris (the guy who answered my call) is extremely nice and he explains everything so well. He told me how he used to work at the courts for many years (that gave me relief that he knew what he was talking about). Randy (the attorney) is delightful as well and put my worries to rest with his expertise and knowledge. You can tell by his demeanor and how passionate he speaks, that he is genuine and he cares about his clients. This office handles everything from DUI cases to just about anything criminal related.

    "Glad I had Randy to guide me through it."
    I had the unfortunate experience of being too drunk one night in DTF which led to a Drunk in Public charge. I was able to hire Randy after looking online for a good lawyer. I ended up paying about $3,500 for his services and he got the case dismissed. It was an easy process. It was my first time getting in trouble with the law, and I am glad I had Randy and Chris there to guide me through.
    "Giving Randy a shot was the best choice."
    Oh man, I thank my lucky stars for attorney Randy and his team. I was able to get a great deal and the best advice!
    "All my friends' cases either dismissed or reduced significantly."
    Randy is a great attorney that has helped me out of a bad situation. I refer all of my friends that get in trouble and he has gotten all of their cases either dismissed or reduced significantly. You definitely get what you pay for when you hire this firm.

    "Trustworthy, honest, hard working and caring attorney."
    If anyone needs a trustworthy, honest, hard working and caring attorney, it’s without any doubt, Mr. Randy Collins. I have had many contacts throughout my lifetime, and I have never ran into such a professional in the law field. He’s also a very caring individual that listens to the client and shows great respect.
    "Handled my case in record time with the best possible outcome."
    Randy is awesome! I called so many attorneys and in all honesty he is such an incredible person. All of his office staff is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He really cares about the welfare of his clients and takes time to discuss your needs in person. I highly recommend him. He handled my case in record time with the best possible outcome.
    "They are such a great team to work with."
    I was new in the US and I didn’t know anything or what to do from Day 1 from presenting my case to Randy. He reassured me that he would help me and that I shouldn’t worry. He was very supportive, responsive to every question no matter how silly it was he was very patient and comforting. He knew exactly how to address the problem and had a plan of action and after a long 2 years, he won my case I appreciate every effort Randy & Chris have done. They are such a great team to work with and I would recommend him in a heartbeat
