    I had my lively hood striped out from under me by the local police department in a matter of a day. I was charged with

    1. Possession of Marijuana with extent to sell
    2. Possession of a Assault Rifle
    3. Possession of $100,000.00 USD in Drug Currency
    4. Possession of a Counterfeit $100.00 bill
    5. Possession of a Counterfeit $100.00 bill
    6. Second Degree Burglary
    7. Second Degree Burglary

    With all of these charges I facing about 7-10 years in State Prison if I was found Guilty by a Jury. I know that I would need a Attorney with a lot of experience, knowledge, and trustworthy to handle my case. I was very thankful that I found Jeff Kent at McDonnell & Kent Law Offices. With Jeff's support and long practice in Criminal Defense he was able to get me a unbelievable plea from the D.A.'s Office of 120 days at a private pay and stay jail with 3 years of probation and the best thing about this deal is after my 3 years on probation I can my charges ex-sponged like it never happened. Thank you so much for your hard work and helping me keep my lively hood.

  • Jeffrey Kent is top in his Field!


    I needed Mr. Kent's services for a criminal issue, a very vulnerable time in my life. He exuded confidence, empathy, and communicated every step of the process in layman's terms. Although he didn't sugar-coat the possibilties, his knowledge and experience filled me with confidence, and his results were consistent with that confidence. The real surprise was that he was willing to advise me during my ensuing probation period. The flat rate he quoted me truly covered every step of the process and didn't terminate with the pronouncement of sentence. Although I hope I never need his services again, I retain his phone number on my speed dial and wouldn't hesitate to call him if the need arose. I strongly recommend him for criminal defense work.

  • Thank God for Jeff Kent!


    Jeff Kent has represented me in orange county and LA county several times with results that you can only hope for. I have walked out of Downey superior court and Santa Ana superior court several times asking myself how in the heck did he get me out of this one? I have been arrested for possesion of a controlled substance,possesion for sale,possesion for sale while armed with fire arm, spousal abuse,receiving stolen ,possesion of stolen,felon in possesion of firearm and more. Some of those charges I have been arrested for several times,and i have never done any state prison time.If it was not for Jeff Kent I would have done state prison time years ago.I have known Jeff for a very long time, I first met him when he was a paralegal and he showed up for an attorney that i retained and i was so scared that he was going screw it all up and say the wrong thing, I called the attorney several times with my concern. He kept telling me to relax i am in good hands . So i rode it out and things went fine. The first time I used Jeff as an attorney was when I went to his partner for counsel and could not afford him, at that time he told me Jeff is now an attorney and does not charge as much to retain. It was a felony case and went with Jeff scared again and had unbelievable results. I could go on all day about Jeff . All I know is that there no feeling like walking into a court house looking at years in prison and walking out with all charges dropped. I have referred Jeff to many people and all have had great results. I would never even consider using another lawyer,EVER!
