"Marlin is one of the finest criminal trial lawyers that I know. He cares about his clients, he fights for his clients, and he is respected in the community not only for his skilled trial work but also for his terrific results. I couldn't say it any better than this: I would trust him with the future of my family members." 
- Ed Flores, Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney and former Senior Orange County Deputy District Attorney with more than 20 years experience.

"I whole-heartedly endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Mr. Stapleton on numerous matters, including a Death Penalty case and several murder cases. He is thoroughly prepared and professional. He is very aggressive and zealously defends his clients, but he is also ethical and honest. He is a truly great advocate and always has the best interests of his clients in mind. I would not hesitate to send a loved one that was in trouble to Mr. Stapleton." 
- Kristin Erickson, Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney and former Deputy Public Defender with more than 20 years experience.

"Marlin has tried more cases to verdict than any other lawyer I know. The results he has attained in the murder cases and death penalty cases he has tried are nothing short of incredible. Marlin's courtroom skills, intelligence, and experience allow him to continually achieve impressive results for his clients. I highly recommend Marlin." 
- Jeffrey Kent, Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney for over 20 years.
