  • I Highly Recommend Dwane Cates

    I retained Dwane Cates from Cates, Hanson, Sargeant, Rakestraw when charged with 6 felony counts by Yuma county. Dwane and his assistants were very responsive, knowledgeable and informative. I am very satisfied Dwane plead my case down to 2 misdemeanors (conditional felonies until I complete my unsupervised probation). Needles to say I would highly recommend Dwane Cates. K in Gilbert, AZ
  • Mr. Cates Renewed My Faith

    Mr. Cates handled the defense of my teenage son for criminal possesion of marijuana and a DUI. His expertise and professionalism made the entire process easier. He promptly returned all calls. He pleasantly and reassuringly answered all questions. Having worked with several attorneys in a civil matter over the last few years I have learned that their service and professionalism varies GREATLY and that paying huge fees (>$100K) does not guarantee service of the quality that was provided by Mr. Cates. Having been represented by some of the "top" in Phoenix made me start to believe in all the lawyer bashing. Mr. Cates renewed my faith and believe in the "profession" again.
  • Resolved Quickly

    I had an allegation levied against me that the police investigated. I was freaking out. Mr. Cates was recommended to me. And after I contacted him, I understand why he was recommended. He totally calmed my nerves and immediately took action; telling me what I should do/not do, what I should be aware of. He guided me through my polygraph testing. In the end, the allegation faded away, and I credit Mr. Cates for resolving so quickly.
  • He Was the Best!

    At the first point from when I retained Mr. Cates, he was nothing but professional, and I felt that he really cared about my case. I could tell that after negotiating with the other attorney, delivering the verdict that was best regarding all parties was top priority for Mr. Cates. He was not the first attorney I have had help me, however, he was the best.
