What Our Client Have To Say About Us
After crossing the CA/AZ border in Yuma, AZ, I was detained by the Border Patrol when it was discovered that I had a marijuana pipe in my car. I contacted Mr. Cates, an AZ criminal attorney who took my case. His expertise and professionalism, as well as his staff’s professionalism were amazing. Mr. Cates took complete charge and worked diligently on my behalf for several months and was able to have my case dismissed. If you have any type of criminal matter that needs the attention of an outstanding Arizona criminal attorney Mr. Cates is the only one I would recommend. In retrospect his fees where an excellent value in light of the fact that I will not be subject to a criminal record.
I was on a road trip going from Ca to AZ and got caught at the border patrol inspection center in Yuma. I received a citation for possession of marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia with the court date attached. I immediately contacted Mr. Cates and his law office for help. The staff there are very knowledgeable and respond quickly to any phone calls or emails regarding the case. Mr. Cates was able to get my case dismissed, with all charges dropped. I’m amazed in how short of time he was able to get it taken care of for me. I would not hesitate to hire Mr. Cates; he is a very experienced and responsive lawyer that provides excellent results!!
My husband retained Mr. Cates in Oct. 2010 after he was arrested and wrongfully charged with possession of marijuana and transportation of marijuana for sale. Both charges were serious F2 felony violations and to add fuel to the fire my husband was not a “legal” U.S. citizen (but was in the process of obtaining legal status). Upon contacting Mr. Cates he was very confident he could be of assistance and very knowledgeable of the law. I’ll admit after 2 1/2 months my husband and I became a bit pessimistic about the outcome of the case but Mr. Cates always assured me he was putting for a valiant effort. Well needless to say I received a call from Mr. Cates assistant on 2/15/11 stating the charges against my husband were being dropped!!! Mr. Cates remained confident the state’s case was weak and he would go to bat for us. I say if you need a good criminal defense attorney PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL MR. CATES!! HE CANNOT WORK “MAGIC” BUT HE WILL DO HIS BEST TO ENSURE FAIR & JUST OUTCOME.
My ex-fiancé who came here on a fiancé visa that was about to expire made false accusations of child molestations against me. Probably out of her hurt feelings because I explained to her that I was not going to get married with her anymore and probably also because someone had advised her to make these accusations because there is a special visa category for “victims of a crime”. She was expecting permanent legal residency as a result of her false accusations.
This was like a nightmare for me and I could not believe that it was actually happening. I quickly learned that it is very easy for an innocent man to land in jail in these cases and i understood that I needed an experienced AZ attorney for Criminal Law. I could not sleep anymore in the night and was expecting the police anytime to come to arrest me. Dwane Cates knew what he had to do and sent me to an expert for polygraph tests. He was very friendly, professional and had reasonable fees. The polygraph test showed that I was saying the truth and I was never arrested or officially charged with anything. If someone would ask me for advice who to consult in a Criminal Law matter in Arizona, Dwane would be my first recommendation.
I retained Dwane Cates when charged with 6 felony counts by Yuma County. Dwane and his assistants were very responsive, knowledgeable and informative. I am very satisfied Dwane pled my case down to 2 misdemeanors (conditional felonies until i complete my unsupervised probation). Needless to say i would highly recommend Dwane Cates.
