As David Munoz sat at the big downtown fancy restaurant with other attorney associates 25 years ago he wondered what he was doing there. Being a civil litigation attorney was not what he had envisioned so many years earlier in High School. Inspired by the fictional character Atticus Finch he realized that despite his student loans he would never be happy unless he was representing the little guy with tough problems not the big insurance companies with their fat wallets.
Within several months he gave his notice and started his small little office on the 6th floor of the Historic Nixon Building in Uptown Whittier. With no clients and a Chicano bookstore buddy who let him give legal advice to his customers he started his practice. Since then David has practiced criminal and family law for the little guy in the Southern California area. With trial experience in Murders, Gang, and false sexual crime allegations. There isn’t a criminal case David isn’t afraid to help you with.
Over the past 28 years David has made a name for himself as a reliable and deft litigator. Knowing that the evolution of family law and criminal law has created a dynamic and hybrid area of the law David had created a niche practice. David helps his clients navigate through this maze of criminal and family law pitfalls. It is David’s goal to keep you out of jail and safely with your family. In his many years of experience David has found that different legal problems require different solutions. From pre-arrest advisement to negotiation with governmental agencies David will be there for you. Thinking about changing a custody situation without legal advice? Think again and call David.

After getting his degree so many years ago from UCLA undergraduate and Law School David has represented many different types and people and causes. Whether it’s helping out the blue collar guy, the executive of a major corporations or even a law enforcement officer David represents his clients with the same Mantra. “Every person deserves their day in Court but every person should stay out of court!”. No matter your situation David believes that in order to best represent you a close and attentive relationship is necessary. It is quite common for most clients to have David’s personal cell phone number in their contact list.
