Toward The Best Outcome

“No Jail Time.”

“Sean Nicholson took a case that could have ended with me in prison for many years and convinced them to drop it back down to a misdemeanor, and give me two years of unsupervised probation. NO JAIL TIME. AND fines and fees were waived.”

- Monica

“They’ve Been Fantastic”

“I got charged with a DUI and felt hopeless until I received a letter from Pacific Defender Law Group. I gave them a call immediately and Sean patiently walked me through the process and explained that I wouldn’t have to attend any hearings unless ordered by the court which was a lifesaver considering I reside hundreds of miles away. I couldn’t thank this office enough, they’ve been fantastic. ”

- Steven V.

“Delivered Just as He Said He Would”

“Sean was amazing. He went through almost a year of fighting for us due to the DA’s delays and was so patient and kind with what our case was. His diligence in all of or court appearances didn’t faze him. He kept reassuring us of what the best outcome would be and he delivered just as he said he would. ”

- Darwin

“There are no words...”

“here are no words that can adequately express my gratitude.
If you want a lawyer that will do the very best by you, and won’t settle for less, hire Sean Nicholson.”

- Monica
