About the Law Office of Ronald G. Brower

Ronald G. Brower, an Orange County criminal defense attorney, has been a leading player in the Southern California legal scene for over 45 years. If you’re looking for reasons to explain that status, maybe all you need to know is what a Los Angeles Times columnist wrote a few years back after watching Ron Brower’s defense of a murder suspect:

“What lawyer would you call if you found yourself — guilty or innocent — facing charges? Somewhere on my short list of three or four would be Ronald G. Brower of Santa Ana. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to place my fate in his hands.” The columnist, Jerry Hicks, added that Brower’s defense “was as brilliant a job as I ever heard in a courtroom.”

Today, the Law Office of Ron Brower continues to provide that same level of commitment and excellence to a long list of satisfied clients. This includes clients involved in some of the area’s most sensational, high-profile cases – cases you read and hear about in the media. Also included are clients in cases that don’t attract any media coverage at all.
