Orange County Criminal Law & DUI Defense Clients Speak Out — Client Testimonials

Several clients and close friends have encouraged me to publish some comments and notes that my clients have sent me over the years. To that end I will start digging through the files, as time permits, and post those here.

He is a good lawyer but above all he inspires confidence.

Rigo Martinez

Christopher helped one of my clients with a very difficult and traumatic case, The outcome was obviously very favorable. He is so professional and knows what he is talking about. He is kind and empathetic. Thank you Chris


I found Christopher McCann to be very professional and diligent attorney. He was extremely helpful and very easy to talk to, I am so glad I hired him and you will be too.


I recommend him highly.

Christopher McCann was personable, professional, extremely knowledgeable, and dilligent as he handled our case. He’s down to earth and easy to talk to. He responded to our emails relatively quickly and very open to Q&A.


I got my first DUI last Dec. A friend of my cousin is a Public defendant in SF and highly recommended this other attorney. I contacted her office and even with the 50% off discount for friends and family, it was still ridiculously expensive. So I decided to find another lawyer. I found Atty Mccan online. I wasn’t so sure if it was a good idea, but decided to go with it anyway. I am very satisfied on how everything went. I met him once, and he took care of all the court hearings until the sentencing day. My DUI got lowered to a wet reckless. He made everything easy and kept me in the loop thru the whole thing. I would definitely recommend a lawyer if you get a DUI, and Mr Mccan is the man.


I have been working with Chris couple of years ago and I couldn’t be happier. He was helping with all of the little details I didn’t even know I needed. Hi was always friendly and ready to answer all of my questions. His attention to my case has allowed me to focus on what’s important to me, healing and recovery. Thank you!

Val Martinchik

Mr. McCann was extremely helpful in resolving my case. He went out of his ways to even make a phone call to the DA’s office to verify that my case was dropped. I would never want to go through any criminal legal matters or wish it upon anyone to go through it, but if you need a criminal lawyer, I would highly recommend Mr. McCann. Thank You! Thank you!

Val Martinchik

Attorney Christopher McCann is the best legal service I ever retained. He spoke to us in a way we understood 100%. I wouldn’t hesitate to retain him again!

kenneth Medley

Highly recommended

Chris is amazing man, sent him an email about my case was called instantly, he’s very responsive within his free consultation i was able to get a full understanding of my case and allowed to ask all the questions of my magnitude while also given a brief explanation within each topic in case i couldn’t completely comprehend the judicial side of it . Thanks Chris for making sure i was treated properly.


Chris McCann was so very helpful. I was calling from out of state and he answers his own phone which was very helpful. He spent a great deal of time with me explaining legal terms and CA laws. He also would not accept any money unless he could be helpful with the case. I could not ask for a more helpful and honest attorney!

Pamela Love-White

Chris clearly laid forth what the process would be regarding the matter I retained him to handle. He then executed on what he explained, to the letter. Legal resolutions are never certain, but having a lawyer do what he has promised on your behalf is 100% controllable. Chris did exactly what he promised (at a fair rate as well), and I was fortunate enough to achieve the outcome desired. Definitely recommended!

William Lloyd

I want to be clear in that I have never actually hired or retained Mr. McCann’s services. However, I have talked to him several times over the phone, and both times he was an absolute blessing simply because he gave me the advice that I needed to deal with the situation at hand. Without his help I don’t think things would have gone so well for me. I can’t thank him enough, and should the time come that I actually require his services in person/officially, I wouldn’t even THINK of calling anyone else.

I must say it is very refreshing to meet someone who actually strives to do their best, and do what it takes to get the job done.


Chris has represented me once back almost four years ago and now just recently for traffic infractions. The thing I appreciate the most, is that he is attentive and responsive with me regarding any questions or progress updates about my case. Each time Chris represented me, I always felt confident and comfortable with him representing me on my behalf legally.

Steve Lee

Mr. McCann is a great attorney. He gave our family a great advice to protect my sister from the domestic violence. He explained the law very well to me. He is an attorney that care, thoughtful, trustworthy, smart, trying to help not trying to milk your money.

Kim Clark

If you want a hardworking, responsive, and diligent attorney I highly recommend Christopher McCann. During quarantine I decided to handle some personal matters that I’ve put on the back burner for far too long. He made it so easy and painless. My life is forever changed thanks to him.


Chris did a great job for me he got me house arrest and I was facing 60 days in Jail. Glad to finally have some closure. I highly recommend him


I am glad to have an opportunity to express my endorsement and praises for Attorney McCann. He provided the expertise and support my family and I required through a year of anxiety in dealing with the Los Angeles court system. Our case was very personal in that it involved my Dad (age 88) who suffered from dementia and my Mom (age 91). He took the time to get to know me and my family and to educate us on the law as it applied to our case and the perils of a very difficult situation. Although the court required ongoing appearances, Mr. McCann diligently guided us through the process with optimism and encouragement. It was such a relief to receive a positive resolution to our case.

Mary Martinez

I reached out to Chris McCann a few weeks ago to discuss an expungement from my record; he was very helpful and informative, but was unable to help me (my case is in another state, and I need to go home and take care of it). He was very kind and answered quickly, and when he realized my case was out of his area of service, he sent over a few attorney names who COULD help me and who specialized in what I needed. He made a great impression, and should I ever need a lawyer in California, I intend call him again.


Chris is a caring, diligent and honest Attorney that I highly recommend. He listens, takes comprehensive notes, and develops a game plan that you can believe in. He also develops great strategies that will help you be successful in your court case. He is very prompt. He is easy to contact, returns calls in a timely manner and does not rush you when discussing your court case. He carefully lays out your options and makes you feel good about the disposition of your court case without telling you what you want to hear i.e. blowing smoke. He tells you the realistic expectations of your court case. He is knows the law and is very familiar with the intricacies of the court system so you can be assured of the most successful outcome in your court case. He explores every option and makes good on his word. He is a man of integrity and character and genuinely cares about his clients. His retainer fee is reasonable and he does not nickel and dime you. I am 100% satisfied and again, I highly recommend him. Thank you, Chris!

Ron Mooshagian

If you need an attorney, then Chris is the guy you need. Unlike any other law firm; If you call for Christopher J McCann, then Christopher J MacCann answers! Not A receptionist, not an assistant, you get Chris! Christopher is your attorney, he doesn’t hand you down to an assistant, and he does all the paperwork for you!!! All you need to do is listen to Chris, do what he says, and he will take care of the rest. He’s also a very reliable person who you can count on, he has helped me out big time!!! And I’m so glad I chose him. If you’re reading this Chris, thank you.


“Christopher J. McCann represented us on a DUI case. He was very helpful along the way, he gave us all the information we needed and explain everything thoroughly. He went to all of our cases and manage to get our case dismissed. I highly recommend Chris, we will definitely rehire him if needed.”

marisol padilla

Chris was very effective in obtaining the outcome I was hoping for. I originally went to court on my own on 2 cases and the offers made to me by the prosecutors was very discouraging. I decided not to accept them and find an attorney through a referral service. I decided on Chris because he actually answered his own phone! Yeah, no answering service, no secretary and no voicemail. He was honest and forthcoming and has always been very responsive. The outcome? The first case at Harbor court was completely dismissed, the second in North County was half the offer I was given by the prosecutor. Chris saved me thousands of dollars and was worth every damn penny in attorney’s fees.

Christopher McCann has earned our highest rating as an attorney you can trust to go the extra mile for you – he did for our family. Christopher went above and beyond in helping navigate a 2nd DUI charge. He showed up and kept showing up in court to get a fair result. Chris truly cares and was encouraging and instrumental in getting our loved one into a rehab program instead of jail. Chris is honest and straightforward – an attorney you can trust.


Christopher McCann is an amazing attorney. He is very diligent, honest, professional and straight forward. He was able to get my Traffic Infraction dismissed! He created a clear plan from the start and was very attentive to all my questions throughout the whole process. I could always reach him via phone, email, or in person at his office. I highly recommend Chris McCann.

Kendall McCarthy

Chris McCann is an incredible attorney! He has gone the extra mile for us time and time again while dealing with the challenges of my son’s DUI case. He takes a personal interest in your case, is always available to explain things in an honest, clear manner, and goes to bat for you with a hundred percent heart and determination to achieve the best possible outcome. Thank you Chris for everything you have done for us!!!


I ended up going with Christopher J McCann for my case after searching and searching for the right attorney. From the very beginning, not only did he set up a plan, but he didn’t try to scare me into anything. He was very honest, respectful, knowledgeable, straight forward, and his prices were very acceptable. He constantly checked in with me to keep me updated, and always kept a positive attitude when doing so. I had homework to do in order for Chris to build my case efficiently. Even though I wasn’t able to get everything done right away, Chris was extremely patient and worked with me to get my case resolved. Due to Chris being a wonderful attorney and many prayers, my case was dropped! Thank you for your amazing services, but also for being a wonderful person!


First I want to start by thanking Chris. Chris, I know it was a roller coaster but even at that you did whatever it took to get me through this.
I was facing about 10+ years on a Federal indictment. Chris did whatever it took and now I’m on house arrest. Thank you so much Chris for fighting for me. I will forever have you and your family in my prayers. To all you that are questioning whether to hire him I highly recommend him. He’s one of a kind. Always makes time to hear you and your concerns and makes sure any doubts are settled. Than you again Chris I get to enjoy my grandkids and boys for the holidays!!

Rizo Ruiz

Very good rate and results I am very happy with his services, it was the best choice I have ever made. Thank you so much Mr. McCann for everything you’ve done for me

Linda Phillips

Christopher walked me through everything! From beginning to end. I had unusual circumstances because I had moved to another area after getting my DUI. He ALWAYS answered my phone calls. He took care of DMV and my court case without me having to be there. Best money I ever spent was hiring Christopher. Extremely knowledgeable and professional. He knows the in’s and outs completely! He really cares about his clients and even helped with the DUI classes, SR22, and interlock device company’s. A truly dedicated lawyer who cares about who he is helping. I just had to follow his instructions, which were completely thorough and on point. A++ Thank you Christopher! In such a difficult time in my life you really made the difference. Heidi


Christopher and his Paralegal provided a legal service for me that was professional, affordable, prompt, successfully completed, and pretty fast. I called Chris on the phone to ask over a few questions to make sure he was capable, knowledgeable, affordable, and most importantly trust worthy. I had another attorney that was completely opposite. I had to fire that bad attorney and hired Chris afterwards. Chris is a very good attorney that I would recommend to any one.

“Exceptional Attorney! Exceptional Person!”

I hired Christopher McCann in April of 2016 based on evidence of his knowledge, skills, experience, and proven results after doing a great deal of research. He receives excellent reviews from former and current clients. He is respected by colleagues, including other attorneys and judges. He is a member of several professional organizations, working hard to stay current with changes to federal and state laws, including DUI laws. My experience with him and the results that he obtained for me exceeded my expectations. Because I did everything that we agreed upon to fulfill the requirements for alternative sentencing, he was able to resolve a second DUI case for me with the outcome being that I will pay approximately $220.00 in court costs. That is it.

I am in a career where my reputation is judged along with my skills. Upon receiving a 2nd DUI, I had a great deal to lose if my case was not handled well. At the same time, I am not in profession where wealth is the number one reward for a job well done. So, the cost for hiring a good attorney was a factor in deciding who to hire. I knew that defense for a second DUI was not going to be inexpensive, but I was not prepared for what some of the attorneys I spoke with wanted to charge me. In searching for a respected, proven attorney with experience handling second DUIs (or multiple DUIs) many of them quoted me fees ranging between $5500 to $9000 for the privilege of hiring them and that was only if the case did not go to trial. In several cases, the egos seemed as big as the fees I was being asked to pay…and I decided that was simply to be expected.

I first met to hire someone for a fee that would mean borrowing money. I arrived at the initial appointment to find my attorney not there and met a person without the same experience who was apparently going to handle my case. I politely declined to hire their services. I am so thankful for that event because it sent me to Chris McCann’s door.

There I met an attorney who is also a person. He is extremely intelligent and knowledgeable without being arrogant about it. He is passionate about the law. Yet, also a caring man who works hard to get the best outcome for his clients. He charged me one flat fee to handle the DUI case and the DMV hearing. Other attorneys charged separately if they were asked to be involved with the DMV hearing. Many of them also did not charge a flat fee, meaning that what one could end up paying a somewhat unpredictable amount in the end.

As I said to Mr. McCann, he wins his cases, so if he is going to operate like others in his field…he really needs to start charging more. I very much doubt he will listen to me. He will charge what he believes is fair based on the details of each particular case and what work is needed for that case.

I have recommended Christopher J. McCann to everyone I know and will continue to do so. I consider him to be an exceptional attorney and an exceptional person, who violates all of those negative stereotypes about what lawyers are like. : )


“Chris McCann Was A Great Choice”

Chris McCann was a great choice to defend my son’s case. He knows the legal system and has many contacts that can help with the status of filings. He was able to recommend a program for my son to complete in lieu of being charged. After successfully completing the program, all charges were dismissed. We could not be happier with the excellent legal counsel from Chris and would highly recommend him to others.


“We Appreciate You!!!”

First of all, he provided an extremely comprehensive defense, I mean, he took literally every step possible to win my case. He made the cop wish he never wrote the ticket. Because even after the court found me guilty during trial by mail, he filed for trial de novo, fought the case, and all charges were dropped! I must say, for a top defense attorney, Chris McCann had a very reasonably priced retainer (damn cheap) & he didn’t ask for ridiculous consultation fees. And watch out, some lawyers will take the retainer and not do much. But Chris McCann will bring down the house if he has to. I called him the day before court mind you. Chris McCann has very concise defense strategies and if you hire him, take his advice and sit back and let the master do what he does best! Seriously, take his advice, he knows what he’s doing, and relax, you hired the best.


“You have been a blessing to our family Chris and we will always remember you!”

My son is 11 months sober, at rehabilitation working through the program, growing in sobriety and mentoring others. He is a different person and I hope one day you can see his life changes!


“I am healthy and just celebrated four years substance free!’

You played a role in that journey. I am eternally thankful to have met you and grateful for the excellent representation you provided.
