"Belen was available on the spot. She goes out of her way to explain my case,and gives me a feeling of confidence! Thank you Belen!"


"I have consulted with Belen on several cases. She is the hardest working attorney I have ever met. She is smart and will go the extra mile to help her clients. She treats everyone like they are the priority which is exactly what you need. She listens to what you are saying and works to resolve the case the best she can for the client. No cutting corners with Belen. I highly recommend her."


"At a time where we felt helpless and quite frankly traumatized Belen was able to step in and reassure us that we had options and assured us she would work her hardest for a satisfactory resolution. My teenage son needed defense against law enforcement and my family needed legal advice and support in the worst way. Despite being beaten black and blue by police officers that said he was resisting arrest, they turned around and charged him with two felonies. We were all at a loss and Belen was able to keep us grounded as we went through the process explaining every step along the way. She worked extremely hard to expose the truth about the officer involved, and because of her hard work the felonies were dropped. My son can go on with his young life without having his record and character tarnished by these unjust accusations."


"Hire this one! I spoke to several other firms before using Belen, every other firm connected me to a non-attorney sales person who refused to allow me to speak with an attorney. All the others care about is how they are going to get paid. Belen was put on the call when I called at 7pm on a Saturday. Belen cared about my son, my son had a warrant for his arrest and did not even know this until he was pulled over and hauled off to jail. Belen went to the jail on Saturday, stood with my son in jail in-front of the jailhouse court Judge and told that judge how it was. My son walked out 2 hours later without paying a dollar for bail. Then the following week she called the prosecutor that she already knew, and was able to get the plea reinstated from years prior that resulted in the case being fully dismissed for ever. I also want to point out that her fees for everything were lower than other attorneys were trying to get me to pay over the phone.. I highly recommend Belen!"


"Belen is a dedicated advocate for her criminal defense clients."


"Very grateful with your attention, your team very kind work, resolved my case I highly recommend ... Thank you."

"We first hired Belen and her highly esteemed team of expert litigators. For her integrity and professionalism, but during the course of our representation, we gained a degree of personal trust and reliance far exceeding our expectations. Belen demonstrated an amazing level of genuine care and compassion and an implicit desire to keep us informed and knowledgeable of each step in the process. She is a diligent and hard worker and leaves no stone unturned. Our representation was nothing short of brilliant, creative and successful! She is without a doubt the Lady I want in my corner.

"Belén is hands down the BEST defense attorney out there for high profile cases. She has the heart, compassion, determination, backbone and most of all the desire to help her clients. Belén’s expertise and experience helped mitigate our case to receive a reduced sentence. She spent thousands of hours over the year and a half she represented our family to challenge the prosecution at every corner and on every angle. She went above what most attorneys do by hiring her own experts and investigators to ensure she went to battle fully loaded. Due to her dedication, determination and commitment, my family was able to end the day feeling extremely confident and satisfied that she obtained the best outcome with a reduced sentence. Belén is a stand up human being who not only represented our family but she became family. If you want the best defense attorney, Belen is your choice!"

"I called several law firms until I found Belen, I knew she was going to be the right one right away. I was facing 5 years in prison the police lied! The detective made things up, Belen uncovered the truth, proved the police lied. No one else believed me, Belen not only believed me, she proved it. Thank you Belen!"

- Client

"This is the best, smartest lawyer/person I have ever met! When my brother was surrounded by police, we called her. She immediately got my brothers phone number, hung up on us and called him. She made my brother put the phone on speaker and yelled at the police. She let them know who was in charge. She stopped everything. She got them to leave him alone. She let them know it was not going to be easy for them. We could hear the Mesa Police trying to argue with her, but she knows what she is doing...Belen checked for us and the case was closed after she spoke to that detective. This is incredible what Belen did for us! We are forever in her debt."
