Best Lawyer in Bakersfield

Mark is a bulldog and handles business! i consulted with him on some paperwork I needed done for my business, he informed me that the process takes 30 days and would do it a fair price. He went the extra mile and was finished a week early. i will be using him for anything i need done from now on. He treated me like a friend.

Family Member – Felony Charges

"My father needed a attorney for multiple serious charges that were filed against him. So I knew that he was going to need a excellent attorney. I must have met with so many in kern county. But when I found Mark and read his reviews and spoke to him over the phone and explained my fathers situation, (multiple felony charges ) he immediately showed genuine concern and sympathy for our situation. When we met up at his office. His staff was extremely kind and attentive to our needs. As we waited very shortly for Mark to attend us in his office. I assumed that he was going to be very expensive do to his very nice office, friendly staff, and his experience that I had read about. After he explained his plans, I was happily surprised how affordable his quote was. My family and I didn't give it a second thought to hire Mark. After several hearings in court. Mark was amazing and was able to get my fathers serious charges dismissed. He is by far the best attorney you could ever hire and very reasonably affordable. Best of all, HE CARES about you. Thank you Mark so much for taking excellent care of us and treating us like family."

P.S. Riley – Assault w Deadly Weapon

"The Lawyer You Need! There are a few things that are important to have, a great lawyer is one of them. I secured Mr. Raimondo's legal counsel after being wrongfully charged in a case that would definitely alter my life. After securing his counsel, at one the best rates in town I might add, he immediately set in motion the most efficient legal team I have ever worked with. His candor, comfort and knowledge instantly comforted me and my family. Throughout the execution of me case he doggedly pursued the truth and exposed numerous fallacies. Try this on for size. After a brief conference with the prosecuting attorney he decided that in the interest of justice my case didn't merit much attention. He was able to turn a mountain into flat ground. My case is a non-issue and I couldn't be more pleased. If you ever need legal counsel that is an iron fist in a silk glove, he's your man. Mark A. Raimondo is that great lawyer you want on your side."

Mark – Sex Case

"I thought my situation was hopeless. due to my stupidity I was looking at 2 serious charges of which i
was going plead guilty to 1 to make the other go away or go to trial to fight both.not having the time or
money to fight I didn't know what I was going to do . Lucky for me the 1 right thing I did was to hire Mark Raimondo as my lawyer. During my pre trial hearing Mark noticed a seemingly small but critical
mistake the D.A. made and was able to get BOTH CHARGES DROPPED IMMEDIATELY .I don't think too many lawyers would have even noticed it but Mark caught it right away. Just like that my nightmare was over.Mark somehow got me out of an impossible situation.
From the 1st day I went to Mark I was very satisfied with the way things were done.The price was reasonable and he was very flexible about payment arrangements.Everything was handled very professionally. If you need a criminal defense lawyer he's the best."

Anonymous – Assault w Deadly Weapon

"I spoke to many lawyers in Bakersfield before going with Mark. I was charged with assault with great bodily injury over a year ago and Mark was with me the entire time. The reasons I went with Mark is because he made me feel comfortable and at ease with the case when I was worried about losing my job and tarnishing my reputation. I could see he was being a genuine person who cared a listened to what i was saying. Other lawyers wanted to talk about money right off the back. Mark was thorough when asking questions and understanding the situation I was in. He always had suggestions and advice and kept me informed about what was happening next. I felt like I could contribute to my own case and be part of the process. During the trial it seemed like he was a step ahead of the district attorney and fought hard to get every detail of the case included into my defense. Mark and his defense team are all well trained and know many people in the courts. His knowledge and experience showed when he spoke to the judges, DA, jury, witnesses and defendant. One thing that impressed me the most is how quick he thinks on his feet. He always knew the laws and the DA was never able to take advantage of any situation. His professionalism was also a huge deciding factor in my case and with the jury. The judge and jury all respected his presence in the courtroom. Lastly, he was worth every penny you spend. He never made me feel like I was being taken advantage of financially. That made a big difference in easing my level of stress during the entire trial. If you need help schedule a consultation and you will see. Thank you Mark."

He's presence in the court room is always professional, organized, prepared & focused on his clients best outcome. He compassion, education & years of experience makes him a leader in the courtroom towards his clients, colleagues & his ability to know the law and reach the goal he sets out for his clients well being at all times. I truly believe his ability to put the client first is the reason why he is Recommended by his peers."

"In 2014 Mark defended me in a felony evading, felony evading wrong side of the road, D.U.I, and U.I,and 2 other cases in muni court. I was looking a potential 9 years in prison, i also have 3 prison priors, and County commitments also. In the past i have had high priced attorney's that seem to just take my money and get me locked up. I followed every suggestion Mark gave me as far as helping my case, this case went on for about a year, during that time Mark would say to pray for a miracle, i was with the Salvation Army at that time so it was easy to ask for prayer, even the counselors there said i would most likely do some time in prison or jail, i didn't do a day in prison or jail.

"Mark A. Raimondo is a very good Felony trial lawyer. I highly recommend his services.

I hired Mr. Raimondo to fight for me. I was involved in a case that carried a possible 16 years exposure risk and it would have included two strikes against my record. I very seriously thought my life was coming to an end.

Whilst consulting for lawyers that were in my price range I came across what for the most part seemed like con-artists and snake oil salesman. Then there were the others that seemed trustworthy and had the experience needed for my case, however their prices were astronomical.
When I consulted with Mr. Raimondo he was very blunt and honest with me. He was not trying to sell me anything other than what that he thought was possible. I appreciated his no bull approach and his confidence. His prices were very fair. He and his staff really reduced my stress of being in a position of not knowing what to do. They gave me confidence. The end result was no prison or jail time. I received Probation and community service with some fines. Considering the weight of my case, I am more than satisfied with his abilities and service.

Again, I am very thankful for his service and highly recommend him, especially for felony trials. He has the experience and intelligence combined with the caring and compassion to help those people who really need help. He is a lawyer who will fight and plead a worthy defense for you."

Jimmy Deal – Assault Defense Client

"I hired Mr. Raimondo to handle my case where I was charged with Assault with Deadly Weapon and Brandishing a Knife. These felony charges were being alleged from my ex-wife's new boyfriend. As you can imagine there was a lot of background information that was being ignored by the police, the courts and the DA. Although Mark tried very hard for several months, we were unable to get the case dismissed at the pretrial stage. I did nothing wrong, and was not going to lay down for this charge no matter what. I choose to further hire Mark to conduct the jury trial. Prior to the case actually being sent out to a trial, Mark was able to get me an offer of a conditional dismissal, where all I had to do was to not get into any more trouble for a set period of time and complete some classes. But still I did nothing wrong, and Mark explained to me the trial process and the presumption of innocence. Mark met with me and explained the offer and even offered to waive his full trial fee if I felt that I wanted to take the final deal. I did not want to take anything, but I did appreciate that Mr. Raimondo was very honest with me with giving me the opportunity to make that decision prior him collecting his trial fee. At all stages I felt Mr. Raimondo was very honest, fair, smart and genuinely cared about me and my long term situation. He never backed down. His fees all the way through were very reasonable and I was able to make payments along the way. We were sent out to trial last week. I was impressed with his trial motions and he seemed to have the DA talking in circles. Even the judge started the trial out with what seemed to me was a warning to the DA, something like, "I’ve known Mr. Raimondo a very long time, we have tried several cases together when I was still a lawyer, actually many of the reasons I am judge today was because of my relationship with Mr. Raimondo.” I do not know exactly what happened, but we came back Monday to start picking a jury, I guess the DA saw the light. The DA moved to MOTION TO DISMISS... I cannot thank Mr. Raimondo and his staff enough for believing in me, and caring about my case and my life. I highly recommended him."

He was able to get our daughter’s case greatly reduced to probation. She is home with us, and doing well. I cannot stress what a blessing it was to have Mr. Raimondo on the case.

Need a lawyer? Get this guy! My wife got into trouble and was begging me to bail her out. I ended up meeting a man who introduced me to Mark. The way that he presents himself lets you know that he knows the law and has been doing this for sometime. I hired him and that day he already went down to see my wife in jail. He was her very first visitor. When I spoke to her after her visit with Mark she had calmed greatly and was convinced that I made the best decision for her. She was looking at 8 Felony counts against her. When her peliminary court date came up I was expecting a postponement so that Mark could go over her case in more detail seeing as how I hired him two days before her court date. I also expected to have my wife in jail for at least another two weeks due to the postponement. To our surprise and delight Mark got a deal with the D.A. where my wife was to serve 120 days of work release and 3 years of probation after her next court date. She was not given any jail time except for the 15 days that she served in county. At the same time Mark got my wife’s $80,000 bail dropped down to release on her own record. That night I picked my wife up from Lerdo prison and her, my daughter, and myself could not be happier. That is not all though. We just came to visit Mark today, at his request, to go over the probation interview so that my wife got an idea of what to expect. He made her feel at ease because the interview was frightening her. He has done remarkable things for us and understood that sometimes good people find themselves in bad situations. He also has taken a lot of time to explain what is going on and what will go on with my wife’s legal issues. I know nothing about the other side of the law and being able to understand it by someone who knows the legal system helped me out greatly. I think the last thing that I liked about Mark is that he was truly concerned for me and my daughter. He would go over the legal aspects of the case with me but after that he always made it a priority to make sure that my daughter and myself were alright. Although this ordeal was a horrible time in my family’s life when my wife came out she was a different person- a person that is wonderful. If she was to stay in there any longer it may have changed her. So like I said, if you need an attorney I would strongly recommend this guy to you. It was the best decision that I could have made

I interviewed others for this work and I’ve employed attorneys in the past. Mark was straightforward and reasonable to talk to. He and his office were efficient and easy to reach. My case was a small thing but it was important to me. Don’t be fooled into thinking that an attorney can guarantee a result. If they tell you that they’re lying. Some of the one’s I interviewed promised things. Mark didn’t try to. The results he got for me were fair.

I was charged with Domestic Violence.. It was a totally bs case.. My now x girlfriend absolutely flipped out on me in a public place because she saw me talking with an old friend of mine. After she threw her drink on me and started to scream at me, . I walked away. She then followed me and jumped into my car and bit me. The pain and surprise of the bite caused me to have a minor traffic accident with the car parked in front of me. She fled the area, and I called 911. When the cops arrived, her fake tears convinced them that i was at fault and arrested me!!! Here i was with all the injuries and several witnesses. It was unbelievable.. Good old BPD.. the man is always at fault in their minds. Wow once our of jail, It was hard to decide what attorney to take until I met Mr. Raimondo. Right from the first meeting with him he filled me with confidence, and i felt protected. I had, and thanks to Mark still have, a clean record. Mr. Raimondo put together the entire case. Meanwhile, several months into this case, this crazy girl came by my home, drunk, and keyed my car. She was arrested on this date for DUI and vandalism. Mr. Raimondo showed all this to the DA, but they still did not want to dismiss. Mr. Raimondo never gave up, and he relentlessly pressured to the DA, even setting the case for trial and he was ready to defend me to the bitter end. The whole time, Mr. Raimondo was very reasonable about allowing me to make payments towards his fee. His fee was also fair. It was a long and frustrating process. I was getting denied jobs because of this arrest, and Mark always kept my spirits up. He never pressured me at all to “just take a dea”l, and always believed in me. He is intelligent and very well prepared. The DA eventually gave up, thanks to Mark’s persistence and the fact that I was really innocent. I am glad the situation is over, and I thank him and all of his great staff for their hard work.. I’m looking forward to working with Mark again to have my arrest record sealed as well. I’m very confident he will work persistently to fight for factual innocence for me. He not only became my attorney but a friend too. Definitely highly recommend him. 5 stars+++++.

After securing his counsel, at one the best rates in town I might add, he immediately set in motion the most efficient legal team I have ever worked with. His candor, comfort and knowledge instantly comforted me and my family. Throughout the execution of me case he doggedly pursued the truth and exposed numerous fallacies. Try this on for size. After a brief conference with the prosecuting attorney he decided that in the interest of justice my case didn’t merit much attention. He was able to turn a mountain into flat ground. My case is a non-issue and I couldn’t be more pleased. If you ever need legal counsel that is an iron fist in a silk glove, he’s your man. Mark A.

As you can imagine there was a lot of background information that was being ignored by the police, the courts and the DA. Although Mark tried very hard for several months, we were unable to get the case dismissed at the pretrial stage. I did nothing wrong, and was not going to lay down for this charge no matter what. I choose to further hire Mark to conduct the jury trial. Prior to the case actually being sent out to a trial, Mark was able to get me an offer of a conditional dismissal, where all I had to do was to not get into any more trouble for a set period of time and complete some classes. But still I did nothing wrong, and Mark explained to me the trial process and the presumption of innocence. Mark met with me and explained the offer and even offered to waive his full trial fee if I felt that I wanted to take the final deal. I did not want to take anything, but I did appreciate that Mr. Raimondo was very honest with me with giving me the opportunity to make that decision prior him collecting his trial fee. At all stages I felt Mr. Raimondo was very honest, fair, smart and genuinely cared about me and my long term situation. He never backed down. His fees all the way through were very reasonable and I was able to make payments along the way. We were sent out to trial last week. I was impressed with his trial motions and he seemed to have the DA talking in circles. Even the judge started the trial out with what seemed to me was a warning to the DA, something like, “I’ve known Mr. Raimondo a very long time, we have tried several cases together when I was still a lawyer, actually many of the reasons I am judge today was because of my relationship with Mr. Raimondo.” I do not know exactly what happened, but we came back Monday to start picking a jury, I guess the DA saw the light. The DA moved to MOTION TO DISMISS… I cannot thank Mr. Raimondo and his staff enough for believing in me, and caring about my case and my life. I highly recommended him.

T.J. Esposito – High Speed Chase

In 2007 I was charged with a high speed chase. Mark was my attorney for the Preliminary phase. The district attorney offered me 3 years in state prison. I had been in trouble before, but I knew if i could get passed this I could change my life. I knew I had the right attorney, just the way the judges and other attorneys talked with him. He had a very strong presence in the court room. Needless to say, we denied the offer, Mark was willing to fight all the way. The very next day after the offer, the DA presented their case to the judge in the preliminary hearing. They were able to call witness (police) and prove to the judge that a felony was committed here. There were 4 charges and every single charge was torn down by Raimondo and Judge Feliz dismissed them 1 by 1(did I mention the cops got me in a high speed chase?) I thought I was done for sure! The DA wasn’t prepared for Raimondo, and Raimondo noticed the DA’s weakness and literally saved my life. Today I am a very hard working husband and father, and haven’t even driven without a seat belt in 7 years..lol…i thank Mark Raimondo every chance I get for fighting for me. Your case is in good hands with this guy.

Mark was doing some work on his home you see, and I am a carpenter/plumber/electrician. A friend of mine was doing some tile work for Mark and I was giving him a hand. Mark is a great guy and we became quick buddies. Due to a brain injury,I am disabled, Mark looked passed that and put me to work on various jobs and was patient and understanding beyond belief. For the next few years I had the opportunity to work for Mark whenever he had some sort of leak,or odd job. Mark always paid me more than I’m worth so I was always happy to work for him. If I was working late,he put me up in one of his spare rooms and treated me more like a guest than someone who was doing work on his home. What I’m trying to say,really,is just what a decent human Mark really is. A couple of years passed without seeing Mark,and I found myself in some serious trouble with the law. Being a disabled veteran,living on a fixed income,I was unable to afford a lawyer.A public defender was appointed to my case.Long story short,I was looking at four years in prison,along with a strike. My public defender told me there was nothing she could do for me so I was going to have to take the four years,but she would try to stop the strike,but no promises. While waiting for her to take the prison time,I went down to have a smoke and try to hide my tears. Being a former Army Ranger,I try not to cry much in public. But I was one depressed S.O.B. I can tell you that.About that time I looked up and low and behold,there was Mark, We shook hands and he told me he had got married and he showed me pictures of his beautiful bride and their wedding in Hawaii,.Mark then asked me what I was doing at the courthouse,and I explained my sad story.He asked me who my lawyer was and I gave him the name of my public defender. Mark knew her and told me she was a very good lawyer. then he looked down at the ground for a moment,and when he looked back at me he said “Dennis,I’m going in to get a cup of coffee in the coffee shop downstairs of the courthouse,you finish smoking your cigarette,and when your through,come downstairs and get me, and we’ll go to court”.Well I thanked him and told him I would,not really expecting all that much ,and went back to my feeling sorry for myself. When I was done smokin,I did as Mark told me and met him in the coffee shop.He put his arm around me and finished the conversation he was having,then we walked upstairs where my lawyer was about to accept the four year prison term she could do nothing to avoid. Mark walked in to the courtroom and told me to have a seat out front. I was a nervous wreck,and kept trying to look through the windows, Mark saw me and waved me away from the window. So I sat back down for what seemed like an eternity,but in reality was less than an hour.When Mark came out,I stood and walked toward him,he waved me back to my seat and walked on out the door. I thought ,oh well, thanx anyway. Not ten minutes later,my public defender walkes out smiling ear to ear and says ” I didn’t know you knew Mark Raimondo, ” then she says ”how does probation sound?” It’s probably a good thing Mark had left the way he did because if I could have found him I would have kissed him square on his lips!!! Mark never asked for a thing in return,although he has a free plumber for as long as I draw breath.Mark has kept me out of jail a couple more times since then for minor traffic stuff. And all as I guess they say, pro bono,not sure if thats the term, but what I mean to say,he never asked for a dime. Mark is a wonderful man, and an even better lawyer. He truly cares about people, and he proved that to me once again when a neighbor of mine,a beautiful young mother,suffering from severe postpartum depression,stabbed her newborn baby. When I heard about the police at her home, I went strait to Marks house.

Attempted Attempted Murder/ 3 strike/ Gang Enhancements

"When my 25 yr old son was arrested and charged with attempted murder, gun charge, gang and multiple enhancements I was devastated. He already had one strike and with these charges was looking at receiving 2 more strikes making 3 and life in prison. I knew from the first time I talked to Mark that I wanted him to be our lawyer. After contacting several attorneys I was certain of it. We had limited funds so will forever be grateful to Mark and his wonderful staff for allowing us to make a deposit and payment schedule that we were able to manage and making it possible for us to retain him. Mark said if we went to trial he felt there was a chance he could have it dismissed or at least hang the jury based on the evidence, but if we lost I would never see my son again. The lowest number I had heard up until that point was 35- life. I can't describe the intense fear and horror I was feeling then but also believed I had the right lawyer. I did. The day before my sons prelim Mark called me and told me that we had an offer of 4 years at 66% time. The charges were reduced and a strike dropped and we didn't have to risk my son spending his entire life in prison. God bless you Mark and I thank you with all my heart."

I had a lot on the line when I hired Mark’s firm. He and his associate Jennifer Dunlap got my case rightfully dismissed. I, at one point got a little nervous about the situation. Mark called me into his office with practically his entire staff and talked to me as if I was a personal friend he had known for years. He wanted me to rest assured that not only he, but all those people in that room were on my side. Mark is very charismatic and good at his job. I highly recommend Mark and his associate Jennifer Dunlap if you want aggressive representation and a staff committed to the best outcome possible.

Mark and his staff did an excellent job at defending me on a felony assault case with great bodily injury. I was facing 7 years in prison for defending myself from a highly intoxicated and aggressive group of men in their 20's. The cops and DA completely ignored the evidence, their intoxication, their blatant lies, all common sense and my clean record. The more holes we exposed in their case only resulted in lower and lower offers. But I was 100% not guilty. And the only choice was to go to trial, bc I was not pleading guilty to something where I was the victim. Mr raimondo personally conducted the trial and for a fair and honest price. I never felt like I was a number or a pay check to him or his superb staff. The jury trial was two weeks long and 9 jurors voted not guilty. The other three just believed that lying BPD officer, and that someone had to pay for the injury that one guy had. So it was a hung jury. Even though I only retained mark for 1 trial and it was way longer than expected, he did not charge me anything to keep the case and see if they really wanted to do It again. Two months later on the day of the 2nd trial the DA finally dismissed the case. All along mr raimondo inspired me, believed in me, fought for me, and saw me from start to finish through the absolutely scariest and most frustrating thing imaginable. I could not imagine how scary this whole process is, how no one cares about facts. Once it's filed is all about what will you take. Mr raimondo saved my freedom, and my reputation.. I cannot stress enough how much he helped me. He's the real deal not just some guy with a fancy billboard or website. I highly recommend him.. highly.
