I definitely recommend this great attorney. This was my first ticket, he helped me through the entire process, and had my case dismissed, happy ending!
I was convicted of a DUI in my younger years, and once my probation was successfully completed, I wanted the charge expunged from my record. My original intention was to go through the process myself and save expenses, but quickly realized I would get lost in the legal system if I did.
After consulting with a number of DUI lawyers in the area, I spoke with a representative from Sohovich's office. Not only were they professional, but they also offered their services at a price that was LITERALLY 10x LESS than the competitors I had spoken to. (e.g., approx $150 v. $1500).
Throughout the process, the same representative kept in touch with me regarding the status of my petition, and quickly sent me documentation of the approved petition as soon as they had it (They even went to the courthouse directly to see what the hold up was when there was a delay). I was very impressed with this service and would genuinely recommend this office to anyone needing a helpful, reasonable lawyer.
If your like me this is probably one of the worst things that could happen to you, Chris makes it as seamless as possible, I thought about going it alone, but glad I didn't, Chris will stay with you through the whole process and beyond and keep you informed.
The only positive thing that came out of drinking too much and crashing my car was hiring Chris. Instead of jail time and 9 months of DUI classes I ended up with a 3 month class and community service. He was prompt in answering every question I had and made a very stressful time of my life a lot easier.

I highly recommend Chris as an expert DUI lawyer. He is very easy going and calm which was a tremendous help when dealing with a stressful situation like a DUI. I trusted Chris 100% as he lead me through this process. I was truly grateful for all the effort he put in on my case! Thank you Chris!

Chris was not only professional and easy to work with he prevented me from having a dui on my record. Chris found a loophole and even saved me from loosing my license. A dui or loss of my license would have ruined my career as it does for many, so before you hire any lawyer that claims to be" THE BEST IN SAN DIEGO" call Christopher Sohovich he is the one you can count on.

Although I did not retain Chris, he helped me decide what choice was best for me when determining my options. After calling several attorneys, I knew Chris was the best option because he was the only one that knew how to handle my case. I was convicted of a DWI 10 years ago in Denver while carrying a California license and was never told I needed to file residency documents to relinquish my California license so I now have to repeat the classes in San Diego to get my license back. Chris sat on the phone with the DMV and also sat on the phone with me and listened to me cry even thought I never paid him a dime. What attorney does that, ever? A genuine, caring attorney who is truly concerned and wants to help people, that's who. There were options that I could have chosen where he could have potentially made a lot of money off of me but he advised I take the classes and not fight with the DMV which saved me thousands of dollars and a lot of time. I am a paralegal so I know what to look for in an attorney and he's got it all. If I ever have another problem or know anyone that does, I'll recommend him to them in a heartbeat. Thank you Chris!

After making one of the biggest mistakes of my life, I felt nonstop anxiety, fear and humiliation about the DUI. I tried to initially take care of matters on my own, but the system is so large and full of pitfalls, I realized I could not do this alone without a bad result.
I called Chris and he walked through the entire process and what the outcomes might be. He was able to get my charge reduced in addition to other charges/infractions dropped (excessive speeding and registration). He took a whole load off my mind while letting me cover my responsibilities at home. Chris is extremely professional and helpful. He doesn't sugar coat things, but he also maintains a real positive attitude. If you made a mistake like me, do yourself a favor and call him.

If you are ever charged with a DUI in the San Diego area look no further than Chris Sohovich for representation. When I was first charged with my DUI I hired a different attorney and ended up having a warrant for my arrest issued because she did not show up to my scheduled arraignment. I was cautious on hiring a new attorney for the fear of being burned again. I called Chris and explained my situation and he immediately took my case before money exchanged hands. I knew from the start Chris was going to work hard on my case. Work hard he did, my case was dismissed. Thank you Chris for working diligently with me, I don't think the outcome would've been the same with the other attorney I had hired.

I found Christopher and decided to hire him based on our initial consultation and his Avvo rating. My DUI was life altering affecting my job and marriage. Chris was by my side every step of the way. My case was dismissed and everything is coming together once again. Chris is an honest, realistic and compassionate individual. I owe him so much more than I can ever repay.
