  • I'd hire him again in a hearbeat!

    “I was very surprised when I received a notice from the court about a case against me. I didn't know what to do and felt lost int the court system. thankfully I found Ray Buenaventura as my lawyer. Immediately upon discussing my case with him, he recognized da winning strategy to win my case. He told me that he could file a Motion to Dismiss based on a violation of my speedy trial rights. Sure enough, he was right! I didn't even have to go to court. He filed the motion, argued the case, and won. My case was dismissed because of his legal knowledge, experience, and brilliance. It's no wonder he's successful. He gets results for his clients. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat!”

    “Councilmember Buenaventura is completely well versed in all matters not only in Daly City, but throughout San Mateo County, State of California, the nation and throughout the world. He meticulously parses information and has the ability to chose those items that is pertinent. He processes the "uncanny" ability to remember particular phrases and comments by friends and constituents that are so relevant and useful when needed. He has a DEEP passion in seeing to the well-being of all people and will go the EXTRA mile to be there for them with needed. I am so proud that he is a colleague, but more proud that he is true friend.”

  • I wish you guys could see him in action.

    “I needed a lawyer who was experienced and had a good reputation in the legal and social community. A friend of mine recommended Ray Buenaventura because he had produced positive results for him. My previous lawyer didn't do anything for me, and he gave me misleading advise that resulted in great disappointment. I needed someone who would be willing to help me overturn my case. I needed someone dedicated and passionate about what they do to fight against the status quo. When we went to court, Mr. Buenaventura was like a tiger. He was fighting for me against the judge. Mr. Buenaventura kept pushing and pushing and was not afraid to mix it up in court. In the end, Mr. Buenaventura got me the results I truly needed. He stayed on point and never gave up til the end. I wish you guys could see him in action. I highly recommend you get him as your lawyer, he's the best and he won't disappoint!”

  • I hold Ray Buenaventura in the highest regard as an attorney, as a member of society, and as an individual.

    “I had the privilege of associating with Ray Buenaventura both as a student in his Evidence course in Law School as well as collaborating with him in implementing the Santa Clara County Peer Court Program through Lincoln Law School. Ray was always the consummate professional, but approached his duties with a level of understanding and compassion that showed his dedication to his students and those he mentored. There was never any doubt that Ray was passionate about the law and its application to facts, but what set Ray apart was his ability to look at any given scenario from both sides of the table and provide equally impassioned arguments for both prosecution and defense. As an initial architect of the Santa Clara County Peer Court Program, Ray helped found a program run by teens to help other teens in Santa Clara County by participating in real-life legal matters before sitting Santa Clara County judges. I hold Ray Buenaventura in the highest regard as an attorney, as a member of society, and as an individual.”

  • He has a command of the law and a presence in the courtroom.

    “Attorney Ray Buenaventura is a lawyer for the people. His service to the community is heartfelt and meaningful. He's all about social justice and protection of our rights. I've seen his work both in the Courthouse and in the Community. What distinguishes him from others is his determination to get justice for people. Mr. Buenaventura takes the time to understand the situation holistically and makes a strategy that addresses multiple nuances related to the case at hand. These days, when our rights can be easily jeopardized for minor reasons, this is needed more than ever. He's relentless and won't ever give up on you. He has a command of the law and a presence in the courtroom. He will fight for you. I highly recommend Mr. Buenaventura.”

    Christina C.

  • I have no doubt that whatever courtroom Ray is assigned to, it will not be his courtroom, but a courtroom of the people.

    “I first met Ray when we both volunteered at a legal clinic at a local homeless shelter. The fact that he continued such work after he became a member of the City Council, while maintaining a full-time law practice, and while teaching law speaks volumes as to his devotion to public service. I have no doubt that whatever courtroom Ray is assigned to, it will not be his courtroom, but a courtroom of the people.”

  • He was a strong leader who inspired people to work even harder

    “Ray and I worked on several national campaigns for President, including grass roots organizing in Iowa, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Texas and California. He was a strong leader who inspired people to work even harder. He lead by example, often taking on the most difficult tasks with sheer determination and grit. He was innovative, creative and bold in campaign strategy. He is the ultimate team player and someone you’d want on your side as an advocate and loyal confidant. He will help without being asked. He will make your organization better. He has my highest recommendation.”

    Irene Bueno

  • He helped give me a second chance.

    “I knew of Attorney Ray Buenaventura because of his status in the community. My dad spoke highly of him and what he's done as Mayor of Daly City. I didn't know that he was also a lawyer. I had a lawyer before who didn't really do a good job on my case. Attorney Ray cleaned it up and got my case expunged. Clearing my record was important to me and he was able to fulfill my goal. He helped give me a second chance. He was patient and understanding, yet fierce and determined to get results that I needed. Hire him. He gets results!”

    Ryan B.

  • Highly dedicated!

    “Ray is highly dedicated to his profession and to the community. As a councilperson with the City of Daly City, you know he would listen to you and take what you say into consideration in his final decision. He treats everyone with the respect they deserve. It was a pleasure to have worked with him while I was with the Daly City Police Department.”

    Julian Agustin

  • He was kind, compassionate, and understanding of my situation.

    “Mr. Buenaventura handled my case years ago.  He was kind, compassionate, and understanding of my situation.  He fought for me in the courtroom. He was aggressive and determined to get me the results I wanted.  After the case was over, he even helped me clear my record.  He really fights for his clients and remembers who they are.  I'm amazed at how much he's done for the community too, as the Mayor of Daly City! If you're ever in a situation that you need a tough, aggressive, and compassionate lawyer, you should talk to him.  He will fight for you.”
