    I cannot believe what a tremendous job The Law Offices of Richard Allaye Chan has done. I got arrested; my bail was $35,000.00, charged with felony Domestic Violence. The alleged victim was cut severely, requiring hospitalization and multiple stitches. I did not do it. I was innocent. Richard Allaye Chan took my case, took my case, asked me to be patient, promised to do his best and ultimately all charges were dismissed and I was free. Mr. Richard Allaye Chan is a fabulous trial lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone.

    I am 19 years old. My boyfriend attacked me and I was merely defending myself. Unfortunately, when the police came I was not very clear in telling my side of the story and I was arrested. Mr. Chan took my statement, wrote one letter to the District Attorney’s Office’s and they agreed to not file charges even before my first court date. I would highly recommend Mr. Richard Allaye Chan, Jr. to anyone with a domestic violence crime charge.

    I thought I was really in trouble. I had a previous domestic violence conviction on my record and my wife charged that I did the same thing to her. I was afraid I was going to spend more time in jail, do another 52 weeks of counseling and be on another 3 years of probation. I was given Mr. Chan’s name and I am very happy I called him. He obtained all of the records, 911 tapes and photographs. He fully investigated my case. He convinced the District Attorneys to dismiss the entire case before we went to trial. I would highly recommend Sacramento criminal defense lawyer Mr. Richard Allaye Chan, Jr. to anyone with a Domestic violence.

    This firm has represented two of my family members in separate matters and both had successful outcomes. Mr. Allaye-Chan personally represented a family member in a criminal case and was successful in having the charge dismissed. Another family member was 7 days away from having their home auctioned due to foreclosure and Mr. Allaye-Chan and his associate, Shannon, quickly filed paperwork for bankruptcy to save their home. It was very short notice but Mr. Allaye-Chan again met personally with the family member and started work immediately to stop the foreclosure. He definitely has a Type A personality which may be off-putting to some people, but he has gotten results for my family and I would highly recommend him and his firm.

    I was charged with a second DUI and hired Mr. Chan to represent me. Shortly after my arrest, I moved away without ever dealing with the case and a warrant was issued for my arrest. Six years later I again contacted Mr. Chan to finally resolve my case since I could not get a driver’s license when I now live due to the warrant. Mr. Chan still had all of the documents demo my previous case and was wiling to help me. The District Attorney’s Office wanted me to plead guilty to the DUI and serve almost a year in jail because I have felony DUI convictions in another state. Mr. Chan refused to agree to that deal. He ended up getting the entire case dismissed against me and I was able to get my driver’s license back. I am so glad I hired him and coin;don’t have hoped to a better outcome. I would highly recommend Richard Chan.

    Richard Chan represented me for my 1st DUI. This was a felony charge my first arrest.in my lifetime. Richard Chan used his knowledge of the legal system expertly. My case dragged out for almost a year. Richard Chan kept me informed of all proceedings, what to expect, and how we should handle each court appearance. My sentence was greatly reduced because of Mr. Chan. I will always appreciate his help and support and recommend him highly. Recently a family member needed representation and Richard Chan stepped in and helped him reduce a felony charge to a misdemeanor! In my opinion Richard Chan is the very best there is.

    I was charged with sales, distribution, and furnishing of illegal narcotics namely, Ecstasy. I was facing state prison and possibly deportation as I was not a U.S. Citizen. The District Attorney’s Office wanted me to plead guilty to a felony sales charged and refused because I didn’t believe I was guilty. I hired Richard Chan’s law firm and the quality of his representation was obvious in the results. The service from the assistants on up to Mr. Chan was top notch. I was extremely worried and Mr. Chan calmed my fears. The District Attorney’s Office wanted me to plead guilty to a lesser charge. Mr. Chan told me he would not recommend the plea bargain and the case went to preliminary hearing. After an entire day of cross-examining four witnesses, the District Attorney stood up and dismissed all charges against me. I think the District Attorney dismissed the charges because they were trying to get Mr. Chan out of the courtroom as he was helping all the other co-defendants also. I must tell you this was one of the greatest days of my life. The American System of Justice (with the help of Mr. Chan) worked for me. I would highly recommend Mr. Richard Allaye Chan, Jr. to anyone charged with a crime.

    Richard Chan is a phenomenal criminal lawyer. He just represented a family member in a fraud case and was able to reduce the charges. His background as a prosecutor gives him invaluable insight. Richard Chan was concerned not only about the charges against this family member but the cause of the behavior. He tenaciously addressed the charges and the underlying behavior. His associate, Patricia Chapman, also provided tremendous support and effort in this matter. I am very thankful for the outcome in this case and highly recommend Richard Chan as a criminal lawyer.

    I was charged with a 3rd time DUI. The District Attorney’s Office wanted me to plead guilty and serve 180 days in jail. I retained the Law Offices of Richard Allaye Chan, Jr., A Professional Corporation. Mr. Chan felt my Constitutional Rights were violated. He filed a Motion for a hearing on whether or not my rights were violated. Before we even had the hearing the District Attorney’s Office dismissed the entire case. The results were more that I expected. I would highly recommend Sacramento criminal defense lawyer Richard Allaye Chan.
