My family and I would recommend Kirk Tarman and his firm
I have had several attorneys since 2012 from San Bernardino county represent me on a serious felony charge l got when I was eighteen. I wish I could have had Mr. Tarman from the beginning. He represented me in June on my fourth violation of probation. Even though he did not necessarily defend me on the case he did represent me in court and got me what I believed the best possible out come. He made sure that I had everything possible prior to my court date to convince the judge to give me the least amount of consequences. He prepared a excellent and thorough character report and plan for me after my release from jail. He saw me three times while I was in custody for a month, which is a lot compared to other attorneys I've had and also compared to other people in jail. Kirk and his team was in constant contact with my family keeping them up to date and answering any questions they had. Unlike some lawyers, Kirk is easy to contact and if he is unavailable, his partner at the law firm helps however he can. What made Mr. Tarman stand out from other attorneys I've had in the past was his willingness to fight for me by approaching the judge while court was in and out of session. There was three times where he talked to the judge then came and talked to me and then went back to negotiate a better deal. That's a lot even for a private attorney. A public defender would not even go back once to ask for a different deal with the judge or D.A. You basically "get what you get" with a public defender. At the beginning of my court date the judge initially wanted to send me to state prison for three years, after Kirk negotiated with the judge I was able to get re instated on probation and be released that day with 30 days of work release. 3 months later Kirk is filling the paperwork for me to get a early termination off felony probation(with the help of my probation officer of course) and also filling for my felony to be expunged. Me and my family feel very confident in this law firm and Mr. Tarman. All his fees are very reasonable and have even been cheaper then other law firms. Not to mention the quality of his services is significantly higher. My family and I would recommend Kirk Tarman and his firm if you need a criminal defense lawyer especially in San Bernardino county where Kirk has worked with and is known by the judges and distract attorneys. In my opinion this is a HUGE advantage. Do not go with the public defender and just be another case number on there desk because you will get screwed and not be able to do anything. Thanks Kirk!
