  • “I was always treated professionally at all times by both lawyers and their staff.”
    I was arrested for domestic violence even though I was 100% innocent. I hired the Madrid Law Firm. They immediately assisted my family in securing my release from jail. I was always treated professionally at all times by both lawyers and their staff. My case went to trial. Ms. Erica L. Madrid was my trial lawyer. God sent me an Angel. She never gave up on me. The jury returned a Not Guilty verdict. Thank you Erica for being my Guardian Angel!!
