Mr. Oropeza was a Godsend to me at a time of great trouble and fear. He represented me flawlessly and achieved an outcome in court much better than I expected. He also was very kind and respectful of me which meant as much as the great outcome.

Mr. Oropeza is unarguably the best attorney I’ve worked with. He perfectly understood what I was going through and ensured my interest was well represented. Highly recommended and would definitely be using his services again.


I had a case that was quite complicated and was at a loss to who to turn to until a friend recommended Hector to me. Hector had a high understanding of client satisfaction and he went the extra length to ensure I got a favorable judgment. Highly recommend.


Mr. Oropeza assisted a family member who was injured in a serious truck accident that was on the news. He did such a wonderful job that I also hired him for my car accident. He helped us to navigate through several obstacles and now I have not only physically recovered, but I am able to put a down payment on my first home.


Mr. Oropeza assisted me when I was accused of a crime I didn’t commit. He represented me at trial and he was able to have the case dismissed halfway through trial. I am so grateful that I hired him. I can go on living my life without repercussions from these false allegations.
