“I met with two lawyers and Mr. Flores was one of them. I decided to go with Ed because I felt like he cared, his fees were fair, and I believe he had the experience. He was very proactive with my case. He saved me a lot of time and was very insightful. What I love most is that Ed is the kind of guy who is very approachable and trustworthy. I held nothing back and he got me the best possible results I could expect. Ed Flores gets my highest recommendation. I cannot think of a better person to have on your team.”Ken M.
“Mr. Flores helped me with a small situation where I was trying to decide whether I need to retain a lawyer or not based on the circumstances. Mr. Flores initial assessment on Avvo was no need for a lawyer. Being concerned and not familiar with the court system, I asked Mr. Flores if I could schedule a consultation visit to get a thorough assessment and more information/education. After the consultation, Mr. Flores advised that there was no need to retain a lawyer. I was very impressed with his honesty. He could have easily convinced that I needed to retain one, and I would have probably retained him.
In addition to his honesty, knowledge and expertise, Mr. Flores is personable and kind!”A Satisfied Client
“Hiring Edward Flores was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Can’t find great enough words to describe this attorney. Here are just some of them: highly knowledgeable and skilled, smart, straightforward, dedicated, work hard to achieve the best results for his clients. Mr.Flores always returned my calls in a timely and efficient manner and found time to meet and address any concerns. I’m really grateful for the service he provided me in my domestic violence charges and the results we accomplished together. Thank you Edward!”Seth
“I was charged with felony criminal charges. Accusations that were totally unfair, and out of line! I had never been in trouble with the law in my life! In fact, all of my adult life, my career was about enforcing the law as a Peace Officer! Now, here I was a defendant. Confused and shaken!
Fortunately, a good friend of mine, and associate to Mr. Flores, recommended his counsel. After contacting and meeting with Mr. Flores, he agreed to take on my case. Over several aggravating months of legal rambling, questioning many witnesses, including me and my own actions, Mr. Flores stood tall for me! And, in the interest of justice, my case was dismissed! I never even had to appear in court!
His many years of experience, as a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney, along with his friendly bedside manner including encouragement with clients, but a bulldog demeanor in the court room produces remarkably fair results! The aforementioned also extends to his office staff! Ms. Ruth, his secretary, is very knowledgeable, personable, and helpful as well! I highly recommend the office of Mr. Edward R. Flores for any accusations resulting in criminal charges filed against you!”Todd
“Mr. Flores gave us a detailed plan for accomplishing our legal objective. He directed us to consider using the public defender’s office at considerate cost savings to us while still expressing a willingness to take on the matter himself. We were impressed with his integrity. He was very personable and expressed a sincere interest in helping.”Clementina
“My life changed a few summers ago when I was accused with sexual assault while vacationing in California. There were 4 stunning criminal charges made against me, all felonies, that could have resulted in me being imprisoned for as long as 40 years. During the early phases of this process I used two different lawyers, but they did not make me feel confident in any way. Mr. Flores is well known in legal circles in Orange County; he has a reputation for taking on the toughest cases with the most severe of penalties for defendants if he is not successful. I met with Mr. Flores and talked about my situation in great detail without feeling rushed in any way and he agreed to represent me in my case. As it turns out, this was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Mr. Flores is a no-nonsense attorney who demonstrates relentless energy in a calm, cool and collected manner with determination. From my experience I believe he is very experienced and capable. He exudes calm confidence and certainty and he has a great wealth of legal experience and extensive contacts throughout the criminal justice system in Orange County. Mr. Flores is “the real deal” when it comes to proactive, aggressive criminal defense. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a stout defense and I make this recommendation of Attorney Flores without any reservations.
After negotiating with the D.A., for over a year, Mr. Flores was able to get me a plea agreement that I would have never imagined possible. They lowered my charges to simple assault and put me on probation, with no jail time. This was the greatest day of my life. After 3 years of probation my charges will be reduced even further. I’m very thankful for all the hard work and dedication Mr. Flores provided me. I can say with absolute confidence that he helped me not only in a legal perspective but psychological comforted me as well. I thank him for giving me my life back and have full confidence that he will do the same for anyone else he is representing.”Berkan K.
“Mr. Flores is outstanding, he is a rare find not only did he prove to be a great lawyer he is also a kind, considerate, caring, honest man. He was prompt in returning my calls and emails, he listened to me and he took care of legal needs. I had some trouble 10 years ago part of my problem was drug related, I found that most people treated me poorly once they knew drugs were involved, but not Mr. Flores. He gave me back my life, we went to court on a warrant that was clearly a mistake but the court was seeing me as guilty, Mr. Flores not only got my warrant withdrawn he also got my record expunged. I walked out of that court room with my head held high and him by my side. I didn’t even consider being expunged. You can’t imagine what having a criminal record had done to my life, I was looked at differently, treated poorly, couldn’t get good jobs, and even my children were criticized for their mother being a felon. All that is gone, I am a good person and now nobody has to doubt that, I am forever grateful to Mr. Flores and his office manager, Ruth. Both treated me with respect and dignity. Thank you Ed Flores!”Kendra D.
“This is to share our superb experienced hiring an attorney who have done an exceptional job handling my case with sincerity, knowledge and expertise. The outcome of my case is beyond what I and my family expected. When we met with him for a second opinion hoping that we should have met him in the first place and we are very confident that he can deliver the best for my case and putting our trust on him no doubt he truly turned my life around. He knows how to handle it both ways as a former prosecutor too and I did not feel being rushed to close my case with his diligence and dedication to get the best outcome. The outcome was that I will not serve jail time but instead, I have home confinement reduced to 6 months. That was a great deal for me and for my family it has been an ordeal in dealing with my case. Attorney, Flores gave me a chance to be free for jail and he did a miracle for me. He is good in his negotiation and being a former prosecutor and knowing the justice system really made a big difference. I highly recommend him as a trial lawyer he gives you his 101% performance with confidence. No doubt about it he is upfront and will tell you where your case stands and no nonsense when he gives you his opinion.”A Satisfied Client
“My consultation with Ed Flores required investigation at several levels to ascertain all relevant information. He performed admirably thinking of things that didn’t occur to me. He presented everything in detailed and honest way and advised me to forgo any action at this time., passing up an opportunity to enlist me as a client. I appreciate his advise and hold him in high regard. In the future I would not hesitate to hire him.”Ira
“Mr. Flores helped me out with my probation case. He dropped all felony charges to misdemeanors. Probation wanted to extend my probation for an additional 2 years; Mr. Flores terminated the additional time. I am now probation free and no felony convictions.
Overall, I am very content and satisfied with my outcome. I am very fortunate to have come across Ed. I truly recommend him. Thank you Ed for all you hard work.”A Satisfied Client
“Dear Prospective Clients of Edward Flores, Esq.:
I am a former California licensed professional who due to a pathology was compelled to relinquish my license and if you believe the press clippings was facing 13 years in state prison in an ensuing funding mishandling criminal case that was preceded by a related civil lawsuit.
I was blessed by entrusting both my civil and criminal cases to Mr. Flores who deftly resolved the civil lawsuit pursuant to a written settlement agreement that included a 30 year repayment schedule.
Mr. Flores topped his performance in the civil case by incredibly obtaining a 6 month sentence for me (in the face of a potential 6-13 year state prison sentence) in my criminal case which I served on an electronic ankle bracelet in an at “home arrest” context.
To top what he had miraculously already accomplished, Mr. Flores went the “extra mile” and obtained by separate written motion, an order modifying my original probation order which eliminated a 10% rate of interest imposed on the original ordered restitution amount that reduced my restitution burden by $190,000.
Lastly, Mr. Flores’ staff including Angelica, were extremely informative, helpful and pleasant to my family and I which alleviated a good degree of the stress, anxiety and uncertainty in dealing with the civil and criminal justice system.
Thank you Law Offices of Edward Flores.”A Satisfied Client
“I highly recommend Ed Flores. We came to him scared, concerned and without direction. We immediately felt confident that Ed would represent our son and that we would get the best outcome. Our son felt secure with Ed’s representation and took his advise to heart. The outcome was after everyone’s hard work our case was dismissed and sealed as if it never happened. Thank you Ed for your kindness and professionalism.”Lynn

“I got a very strong sense in the beginning that Ed had at least several great qualities that I’ve already listed! Ed proved that he had those qualities by the end of my case! I’m a recovering Alcoholic that relapsed and ended up with both felonies and misdemeanors that could have put me in jail for quite a while! I felt confident with Ed after one meeting! He was professional, thorough, and diligent in doing what it took to get me a good deal without having to go to trial! I didn’t feel like I needed to stay on top of him to do a good job and I didn’t spend the money I could have to stay in close contact with him! I felt quite confident he would do his best and I felt that his best was going to be very good! He went above my expectations and I’m very grateful that I got lucky in finding him, that the felony was dropped, no required Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings, no jail time beyond the initial time to get bailed out, no treatment center, and he met with people on about six occasions to discuss reducing my charges! I don’t take the time to write things like this unless they knock my socks off and he did that good of a job!”Pete
“Edward really care a bout you as as person, you are not just client , early on I planned to challenge the DA by going to trial, Edward advice me to the risk and financial obligation of going to trial, He recommended that a trial is the last resort and should presume the option of negotiating with DA , through his negotiation with DA, Edward was able to delivered the best out come I was hoping for , the case got dismissed , Edward always responsive to my E-mails and phone calls, he is a trustworthy lawyer.”Mutasem

“I previously hired my first attorney on this case, which screwed up badly. I had to fire him and search for a new attorney. That is where I was very fortunate to have found Mr. Flores. Mr. Flores was so kind and very knowledgeable in helping me with my case. He was always professional and always answered my questions. He explained the process every step of the way, I never felt lost in the entire case. I was recently stuck with a huge restitution balance of 38K, he was able to drop that down significantly to 13K. I truly recommend Ed Flores, I’m very content and grateful to him for all his hard dedicated work to my case. THANK YOU ED!”A Satisfied Client
“I am the wife of FF, first trial was hung jury second trial he was convicted but outcome came in our favor, my husband was looking at a minimum of 3-6 yrs, he was sentenced to 180 days of which he only served 45 days.

Our ordeal started Jan 2012 and we are currently dealing with classes and probation but nothing like the turmoil we experience in the beginning. I highly recommend Mr. Flores for he was our ANGEL.

“I’ve heard the jokes “Good lawyer knows the law, and great lawyer knows the Judges”. To me, Mr. Flores is not only good or great, but excellent/outstanding with his full knowledgeable capability to closely dig into your case for every single detail, stand on your side at the court. He cares about YOU (a client who needs real help not just promising). I struggled with 2 previous lawyers before I met him. I would recommend him to anyone who needs the right solutions for your case.”Dinh
“Ed provided us with no none sense & straight forward communication and followed through with what he said he would do. Ed prepared thoroughly for my case and went to battle along side me.

There is no way we can ever repay him for his work to help our family.”A Satisfied Client
“My First lawyer of Newport Beach, CA, screwed me, not to mention he is a drunk. My times he would show up to my hearings with the liquor coming out of his pores, even my brother leaned over and said “dude your lawyer is drunk.” Well after spending 4 months in jail and 3 years of formal probation, Ed Flores, not only was able to get me out of jail for a probation violation (I wasn’t suppose to be around minors, but the minor was my daughter), not only was he able to have the jugde rule in my favor to be around my daughter, but my girlfriend (which was my victim), live with me. I had another daughter and again I went to Ed Flores for a modification of the court oder to again allow me to be with my daughter. I got off probtion in January of 2012, and I went to him for the biggest life changing event of my life. I wanted my case dropped to a misdemeanor and expungement. On June 20, 2012, Ed Flores did what he said he was going to do. Ed Flores dropped my felony to a misdemeanor and expunged my record. Ed Flores was able to give me a piece of my life back, a piece that I’d been waiting for for a while. Now I can get on with my life. If you out there are in any kind of trouble and need a lawyer and your trying to find one; Ed Flores is your man!! He will give you your moneys worth and then some, happiness and freedom. I will always be indebted with Ed Flores, and if I every need a lawyer for anything, I will definitely with out thing about it, call on Ed Flores for help.

“Ed Flores exhibits that rare quality of possessing legal acumen and empathy. I have had enough experience with attorneys to be able to distinguish between those attorneys who view their clients as monthly invoices and those who view their clients as human beings with legal and personal issues that need to be addressed. Regardless of the type of attorney one seeks, it’s important that s/he has a personal interest in his/her client. I don’t think I’ve ever had an attorney who possesses those qualities more than Ed Flores. I would recommend him unconditionally.”A Satisfied Client
“Edward Flores is, in my opinion, the best criminal defense attorney in Orange County. By working with the DA early on he was able to reduce my charge before it was even filed. This saved me from having the original arrest/charge on my record. He was honest, upfront and available throughout the entire process. Each time I discussed my case with Ed he was able to answer my questions clearly and in a way that alleviated my concerns. Throughout the process I felt like Ed was in my corner fighting for me. Not only did he help my family and me through a difficult time, he actually delivered the desired results in the end. He is truly a talented, dedicated defense attorney. I cannot recommend Edward Flores highly enough.”A Satisfied Client
