  1. Relieved. (Out of state)

    • I recommend David Boertje.

    I have been trying to contact the courts through hundreds of phone calls and even wrote dozens of letters about my DUI case. Still I had no response, being out of state I felt helpless. I contacted Mr. Boertje and I told him my situation and he took care of my case. Even better he got the court to deem the remainder of my DUI classes satisfied. At a reasonable price. Other lawyers wanted thousands of dollars. My family and I are very thankful.

    • I recommend David Boertje.

    First, I've never been in trouble where I've needed an attorney...
    But a bad situation arose and I was recommended by my boyfriend to hire Mr Boertje to handle my case...
    I had multiple charges, I was looking at, I was really scared of facing jail time... Mr Boertje helped me extensively in gathering evidence and witness statements and the such...
    My case is going to be settled this month and I am receiving no jail time at all, my charges were all reduced or dropped...

    Thank you, Mr Boertje this whole situation was way out of my league, also thank you again for having patience with me as the whole thing has had me so upset, worried and confused
    I highly recommend Mr Boertje and associates to anyone who runs into a situation that is beyond their control and knowledge of San Diego courts, they will get you the best possible results for your case.... Thank you Mr Boertje, Sincerely Maryjane

    • I recommend David Boertje.

    I first found Mr. David Boertje on a net search for criminal attorneys in San Diego...After meeting with Mr. Boertje, I knew he was the right man for the job!

    I have had a checkered past and had gotten into some trouble and felt it was best to hire Mr. Boertje to handle my case...
    He did an excellent job on my case it was reduced to a misdemeanor with probation instead of facing jail time, he also had my fines reduce to nearly nothing...

    Once again, unfortunately, I got into another situation where I required an attorneys assistance, I never hesitated twice to contact Mr. Boertje, he immediately reassured me and made me feel better, that everything was in his hands and I didn't have to worry too much...

    Mr. Boertje accepted my down payment and worked with me on a payment plan that I could afford, as I am currently unemployed and waiting for disability to start... He even went as far as to come out to my house to discuss my case, being that I am very ill sometimes...

    Mr. Boertje and his associates will take good care of you and your case, I highly recommend him, he has met all my expectations and beyond...Thank you David Boertje....Two thumbs up!!

    • I recommend David Boertje.
    • I hired David 1-3 years ago.
    • David handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I needed to get some misdemeanor convictions removed from my record as they were preventing me from clearing a background check for employment. The problem was that I was still on probation and three lawyers that I had spoken with told me that, although there was early termination of probation in California, I had not completed a sufficient amount of my sentence for a judge to consider such a motion. After speaking with David Boertje, although we had no guarantee of success, I felt that I had the best possible chance of having my record cleared. He explained the process to me, expedited the filings so we could get the earliest possible court date and even took time during his vacation with his family on Fourth of July weekend to speak with me about our case that was coming up the next week. Not only was David successful, (the judge granted both motions) he made me feel as comfortable as possible through the entire process, giving me realistic expectations and understanding and addressing my concerns.
    I would recommend David Boertje to anyone who needed help with Criminal Defense or related motions in San Diego. He is a true advocate and partner and got results that others said were impossible.

    Mr. Boertje is amazing.

    I had gotten a letter the day before I had an arraignment, I googled San Diego Criminal Lawyers, he was the first name that came up and I did some research. I called him, he took my case immediately and went to my arraignment for me the next day. Since I am located out of state, he got it rescheduled for a date that worked for me to commute back and forth. His fee was reasonable and he worked out a great payment plan with me. My case is now finished and I only had to go to jail for a book and release. Still horrible, but absolutely necessary. I ended up taking a plea and all I have to do is do 40 hours of community service.

    He is very kind and caring and not at all what you think of when you think of a criminal defense attorney. His staff is amazing as well. Kamron is awesome and so is the receptionist (I forget her name) but everyone is just amazing. I was so scared and freaked out but Mr. Boertje explained everything to me and put me completely at ease. I could not have asked for a better lawyer. I would insist that everyone who is faced with a criminal case to call David Boertje.

    Mr. David Boertje and his paralegal Ms. Kamron Diaz made me feel immediately at ease when I first approached them in the representation of my “under the influence of a controlled substance” case. The retainer was reasonable and affordable, and much less than many other defense attorneys. He attended all of the pre-trial hearings for me, allowing me to continue with my daily routine. He always kept me well informed of each hearing’s outcome as well as the subsequent steps in the process. Once he received and reviewed a copy of the police report, he recognized the police officers conducted a flawed arrest, and filed a motion to suppress evidence. At this hearing, Mr. Boertje’s legal acumen and thorough preparation was displayed through both his pragmatic questioning of the officers and substantiated arguments made before the judge. The judge had no other choice but to rule in our favor to suppress evidence, resulting in a complete dismissal of the case by the prosecution.

    Thanks David and Kamron for all of your hard work and help!!!

    I needed a lawyer to go into court for me to have all my community service and dui classes transferred to another county and they made it happen. Kamron, David's partner/assistant, was the one communicating with me. She was very informative, responded to my calls and e-mails at a very quick manner and time, and was always keeping me updated and making sure everything went smoothly. They were more helpful then any of the legal programs in San Diego could be put together!

    David is honest and conscientious. I've known him and worked with David and his staff for several years, and trust him, implicitly. He's also an excellent trial attorney, and truly cares about his clients. Very hard working, and has an excellent support staff. Bottom line: If I ever needed assistance, David is the first person I would call.

    David Boertje is a great lawyer. He was not only professional and set my mind at ease but he immediately had me feeling confident that I was going to win my case. He was well prepared and made the prosecution seem like it was their first case. He immediately noticed a mistake on the prosecution’s case and had the charge thrown out. The prosecutor argued and the judge actually went to his chambers to review if the prosecutor made a mistake. The judge came back within 5min and ruled that the Prosecutor was at fault and the charge was thrown out. I could not believe how quickly he got the charge dismissed which made for one super happy client and one very upset prosecutor. If you want to hire an experienced, well rounded, and prepared lawyer hire David Doertje. I felt like I had the dream team in my corner. He was great!!
