I am so thankful to find Jo-Anna & her office. I must have contacted a dozen attorneys and could not find assistance. I was not a defendant in a case but the plaintiff. She was still willing to help me with my case. She was extremely responsive and kept me informed every step of the way. Her decisions were always in my best interest. I would defiantly recommend Nieves Law Firm.

I can’t think of anything bad about how my situation was handled thru this law firm. Nieves Law firm was professional from the start to end!

Not to get into my situation but I put myself in a position of losing my livelihood, everything that I have worked so hard for over years due to some wrong decisions I made. Jo-Anna off the top was available, caring, understanding, and set me at ease about the process of my situation after the first conversation. From there Its history!!!! Sorry for the long write But this the least I can DO!!!!!

Sophie A. Via Yelp

Jo-Anna came HIGHLY recommended from several people who I literally trust with my life, so I was not surprised at all when I finally had the opportunity to speak with her. The Yelp! reviews, the referrals, and her trial record all spoke for themselves, but her candor, patience, and professionalism were still greatly appreciated. From our first call to consistent emails, and clear communication were flawless. She is set up technologically to make every aspect of service seamless and convenient from payment to updates on case status, and more! If you or a family member, colleague, friend, neighbor or complete stranger find yourself in need of a Criminal Defense Attorney, please do yourself a favor and look no further. Jo-Anna genuinely cares about your experience and your outcome, and understands the impact the results can have on both your professional career and personal life. Thank you Ms. Nieves for everything!!

I highly recommend Ms. Nieves. She’s knowledgeable, compassionate, and tough. I felt much better walking into the courtroom with her on my side. She gets it.

Edward C. Via Yelp

I can’t recommend Nieves Law Firm enough. I spoke to a dozen attorneys and couldn’t find someone to represent me as the plaintiff but even though Jo-Anna represents defendants, she was more than willing to help me with my case and did an amazing job. She was very responsive and always made sure that she made sure to check in with me about what I wanted as far as the outcome of the case. She was very calm, patient and extremely knowledgeable. She took a lot of time and paid close to details. She also made sure I was informed of all possible outcomes from multiple sides. I was very impressed and would definitely recommend her!

Ashley B. Via Yelp

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.
