About Fullerton

Fullerton is home to some of Orange County's best schools, including Cal State Fullerton, Western State University College of Law, Fullerton College and Southern California College of Optometry. Along with the schools Fullerton has a thriving downtown bar and club scene along Harbor Boulevard, making Fullerton major destination not just for locals, but for many people throughout Southern California.

In recent years the downtown Fullerton bar and club scene has come under fire by city officials and residents who claim too many young people are not only wandering the streets drunk allegedly causing problems, but driving drunk. As a result Fullerton Police have begun aggressively targeting bar and club goers by setting up frequent DUI checkpoints around downtown, stopping people on the streets and watching people from parking lots exiting the bar "appearing drunk," getting into their cars and suddenly being pulled over.

Fullerton is home to the North Justice Center, and it is also home to Law Office of Michael L. Guisti, which has established over a decade's worth of professional relationships with numerous Orange County prosecutors and judges at the North Justice Center.

Client Reviews

“It was strongly recommended that I call federal defense attorney Michael L. Guisti. He had several investigators look at records and such, and my federal case was dismissed. Michael Guisti does what few attorneys can do, beat the federal government, and that is why if you’re in trouble with the government you need to call Michael Guisti right away!”
