I recently had a legal situation arise in California. Because I live in Texas it made dealing with this issue problematic. I called some people and was lucky enough to have Jo-Anna Nieves contact me. After speaking with her for just a few minutes I knew that I had the right attorney ! I forwarded all the paperwork that I had accumulated to Jo-Anna and prepared to come to Oakland. When I got to Oakland for our first face to face meeting, she knew the facts of my case better than I did. I would wholeheartedly recommend The Nieves Law firm and Jo-Anna Nieves to anyone who needs legal representation in California. She is a fantastic attorney and you can rest assured that she will be VERY well prepared should you have to go to trial.
