Top Attorney - Orange County - 2015
Attorney at Law
16520 Bake Parkway, Suite 280
Irvine, CA 92618
A FORMER CALIFORNIA STATE LEGISLATOR and Orange County deputy district attorney, Ron Cordova offers his clients a depth of experience and knowledge of the criminal justice system that few other criminal defense attorneys can claim. Ron has represented clients in 29 states and the District of Columbia as well as several foreign countries, achieving an incomparable record of success.
Ron Cordova has been practicing law for 42 years, 36 of them in private practice, and personally handles all his clients' cases. Ron is accessible and answers his clients' questions in questions in plain english, not legal jargon. "I don't speak legalese to my clients," Cordova clarifies. "I discuss with my clients what is happening in their cases and why it is happening."
Ron Cordova has tried more than 150 criminal cases throughout the United States and believes that his greatest victories have come in vindicating clients who have been wrongfully accused of a crime. "The irony in such cases is, of course, that I have not obtained anything more than what my client was entitled to - a not guilty verdict."
Ron Cordova has been named a Southern California SuperLawyer seven times since 2007 and has been selected by OC Metro Magazine as one of Orange County's top five criminal defense lawyers every year since 2009. He has also been recognized by Newsweek Magazine as one of the best criminal defense attorneys nationwide in 2011, 2012 and 2013. In addition to his years of trial practice and public service, Cordova has taught comparative criminal law in several Eastern European nations and has recently been invited to lecture for the sixteenth time in Hungary.
Ron Cordova's representation in high-profile cases has given him national prominence, but he prides himself most on the skill and personal attention that he devotes to every client's matter. Ron provides personalized legal representation to clients who find themselves in difficult circumstances. "I understand that even good people sometimes find themselves in bad situations," he explains.
