I had the biggest scare of my life when I was facing 25-LIFE for evading arrest in a motor vehicle. No one was injured or killed. The charge was enhanced due to previously being convicted twice for offenses other than evading. I was denied bond, then after 90 days, was given a $50k bond which I eventually made. I hired an attorney that I later realized was a con with a license and lost my family’s money. After reading negative reviews about that liar… I mean lawyer, I came across Tristan Legrande. This man was the complete opposite! Words cannot describe how much of a blessing he actually was! He never lied or gave me any false hope, yet was very determined, genuine, and showed that he actually cared. We went to trial and the case was dismissed on the first day! THE VERY FIRST DAY! Can you imagine fighting a charge for a whole year, that could cost you the rest of your life away from everyone and everything you love, and beating it right after the jury was selected? That was nothing short of a miracle! NO BS, THIS MAN IS MY PERSONAL HERO! My family and I thank you with all of our hearts Tristan! You saved my life, and for that I am forever grateful! If anyone is looking for an attorney that will really fight for you… LOOK NO FURTHER! THANKS AGAIN TRISTAN! THE ONE AND ONLY! “

About a year ago my world came to a complete stop. I got arrested and I feared the worst because my charge was an extremely severe charge that could have 5-99 years in jail time. I knew hiring the right lawyer would be my only hope to winning this case. I consulted a couple of different lawyers but either felt like they just wanted my money or that they didn’t really have my best interests in their minds. After speaking with Tristan, I knew that he was going to be my choice. He was respectful, honest, but also gave me more info than anyone prior had. The case dragged out over months and the offers were not pretty. Started out with 7 years jail time, then down to 6, and finally probation. Now normally, most people would accept probation on such a huge offense like mine. Unfortunately, I could not accept this bargain. After conversing with Tristan about our odds we decided to take it to trial. He did not promise that we would win but he also did not make me feel like we had no chance. Over the next few months, Tristan worked tirelessly on our arguement while I was able to go about life while I was out on bail. I will be honest, I feared the worst. A few days before our trial date I got the best news of my life. They were dismissing my case! I literally cried tears of joy after hearing that. I could not believe it. Tristan presented such a good arguement that the defense had to discuss it and they decided it would be best to dismiss. Tristan is an excellent attorney who responds promptly and always has your best interests in mind. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Tristan as your lawyer and would definitely recommend him to anyone that I knew.

State v. O.C.
Date: Jul 03, 2017
The stakes were high: my client was charged with possession of a controlled substance, MDMA, 4-200g, with intent to deliver or sell, a 1st degree felony, punishable by 5-99 yrs in prison. To complicate matters, my client also does not have a legal citizenship status, and faced deportation if he was convicted, or even if he were to plead guilty and was placed on probation. Client was searched by private security at the entry of “Something Wicked” 2016, and the controlled substances were found in his groin area. Despite the search being done by private security, it was discovered that the arresting officer and 31 other Sherriff’s deputies were working the event. The scheme seemed apparent: have the private security that are not off-duty law enforcement do the illegal search, then bring the off-duty law enforcement working security the fruit of that illegal search. This way, I suppose they felt immune to complaints about how the search was conducted. We set it for trial and fought the search. Luckily, the ADA working this case did his trial prep and determined suppression of the evidence was very possible – and dismissed the case.
