What Our Clients Are Saying

  • The police charged me with five felonies. The public defenders offer was terrible so I started to interview criminal defense attorney's in my local area. I must have met with at least twenty of them. I wanted a fighter and ended up choosing Lonnie. The first time I had him represent me, I asked him to try to change a "no contact" restraining order so my marriage was not destroyed by the state. I saw him fight for me before the judge. I believed then that he was the right choice. Never would I have imagined that it would be such a long drawn out fight. One and a half years of court appearances till the final outcome. I have no charges and no criminal record. I live in the Coachella Valley and hesitated to retain an attorney who lived so far away. Every court date I wondered if he would make that long drive. He is utterly dependable. My life is saved and most important my marriage is saved. How could I be more thankful. I will never forget how important it is to choose the right guy. To say I would recommend him would be an understatement. Retaining Lonnie is one of the best decisions I have made. Now its over. I couldn't be happier.

    One of the best choices I made
  • My husband was accused of a crime he did not commit. Due to the nature of the crime, the case was complicated. I obtained an attorney who was not sensitive to the situation and refused to take suggestions from my husband or myself regarding the issues at hand. He ultimately withdrew from the case right in the middle of the pretrial. I prayed and was directed to Mr. McDowell, who not only listenedto the entire situation but offered some assurance that he would never leave us in the middle of the case and would fight to the finish. The entire process took 14 months and Mr. McDowell endured until the end. Case was ultimately Dismissed. I would recommend Mr. McDowell to anyone who needed an attorney who is not just looking at the facts but trying to get to the truth of the matter to service his client. His entire staff was kind and sensitive and made you feel like a person, not a criminal. I actually enjoyed the fact that Mr. McDowell was both professional and personable. It is Good to know that all lawyers are not just in the profession for only money. He cares.
