Mr. Casey is nothing short of a miracle worker. I was arrested for two DUI's but with Mr. Casey's help was able to get the charges reduced to a first offense. Just speaking with Mr. Casey during my initial consultation helped ease my nerves about my impending cases. He was always willing to help and always had a primary and secondary plan of attack. I highly recommend Mr. Casey to anybody going through criminal charges in California. The best part was I was never made to appear in court once, he took care of everything on his end and would just let me know my options. I feel like I received the best result possible due to having him in my corner.
What's more is that his staff is AMAZING (especially the office manager Ashley Linza)! She was always very eager to help and is always super friendly and professional. I owe Mr. Casey and his staff (esp. Ms. Linza) a huge debt of gratitude! I would not hesitate to hire them again or recommend them to anybody looking for an attorney

Having a DUI and the looming consequences weighing on your mind is horribly stressful. It was my first DUI and I had no idea what to expect, what the process is and what punishments I would face. I met with several lawyers around sd and was unimpressed to say the least, but to be honest I didn't know what to expect, I had never been in this position before.
I booked a meeting with cole and he came in to meet me on a Saturday. I explained my unique circumstances and he listened intently and gave his opinion. He was the only lawyer I felt who was not only listening but trying to find a way to get me out of this. No detail was too small, he was engaged and passionate and made me feel confident that if there was a way to get me off he would find it.
My unique DUI involved prescription drugs and alcohol and not only did Cole have experience defending people in my situation but he wanted to know if I was having troubles with it or if I had a problem. It was a small thing but it felt like he wanted to know I was in a good place mentally and emotionally even before he took a dollar.
I was slightly hesitant about the price until I realized what it included. DMV court, criminal court, all meetings, coordinating Experts for trial, expungement, insurance reference and the list goes on. When I compared the costs to other lawyers, each of these were billed separately and so would add up to the same if not more than Cole.
Best of all is he was hungry to defend me, the other lawyers were all thinking pleading guilty, Cole was ready to go to trial and ready to win. He knew my arresting officer, the prosecutor of my trial, more importantly her boss, the judge and just about everybody throughout the process.
His team was in constant communication with me through every step. While his staff handled different aspects of my case ( they were great as well) it was cole meeting with me, calling me and more importantly standing by me in court. I saw one of the other lawyers I almost went with while in court and the disparity between their professionalism, confidence and even suit just reminded me what a great decision I had made.
We were set to go to trial when my expert fell through (at no fault of cole). Cole had another top notch expert ready to go to bat the next day. We ended up settling for a reckless driving ( no other lawyer even thought that was possible). Cole called and made sure that was what I wanted and then made the deal. I am not exaggerating when I say Coles influence and connections directly resulted in the settlement of this case. Cole offered to cover the expert witness trial prep fees because he knew I was in financial straits at the time. I couldn't be happier with the out come and am waiting to get this expunged off my record ( another feature included in the initial price.)
if I just wanted to plead guilty I might have gone with another cheaper lawyer. Cole explained the law to me and showed me I had a fighting chance and looking back on the trial and setup I am so relieved I did not tighten my wallet because this was a huge crossroad in my life and with the money I saved from my reduced charge I ended up paying less than if I went with a cheaper lawyer and plead guilty. I still recommend talking to other lawyers, but if you aren't visiting and seriously considering Cole Casey then you will seriously regret it.

Mr. Casey was kind yet direct and gave no B.S. He was reassuring and incredibly knowledgeable in all things DUI . His calm demener and direct way of dealing with things was refreshing . He did everything he promised and closed the case successfully! He made a very diffacult time quite bareable and the outcome was exactly as he said it would be! THANK YOU MR. COLE!!!!!

I hired Cole after I already had a different attorney who basically sat on my case and did nothing for almost two years. Cole took over my case a week or two before trial, and wasted no time getting ready for war in the courtroom.
From the moment I hired Cole, I knew I was dealing with something else entirely. He was a professional of the highest order, and his firm was a tight operation. As an attorney myself, I hope that I can one day have my own firm running with such efficiency. Which brings me to his staff of clerks, associates, receptionists-- they were all incredible. They didn't just take care of my legal matter, but they took care of me as a person, understanding that I was in a very stressful position.
As for his legal acumen, Cole knew the process inside and out. He practices in one area, and he is simply an expert in it. In my view, he has mastered his craft. This isn't even debatable.
At trial, Cole was brilliant. He chopped the expert witness into dust, and made her testimony seem silly and farcical. His style of cross-examining was so precise and balanced, that other attorneys in the building were coming in to watch him perform. It was pretty cool to see.
Mr. Casey is a great trial attorney, and an absolute expert in his field. I will continue to send him clients whenever the situation presents itself because I know that clients are in good hands when he is representing them.
If it sounds like I'm gushing, it's because I'm forever grateful for his efforts on my behalf, and he deserves nothing less than high praise.

This was my first DUI and I was scared out of my mind. After doing some research online, I had chosen Mr. Casey after reading such positive feedback. Mr. Casey and his team are extremely professional while offering great customer support and care. Kayla Sweeney took great care of me as my case manager ensuring I was up to date with every step of the process. I felt much more at east after receiving a detailed explanation on how the procedure would go and sure enough the charges dropped. Mr. Casey and his staff are true experts in their fields that will put you in the best position when dealing with your DUI case.

There are not enough words to express my appreciation for Mr. Casey and his staff during such a hard time for me. Getting my first DUI was extremely stressful and emotional and I instantly was put to ease when I came into the office. I don't know what I would have done without such a tremendous support team backing me. The DUI outcome turned out so much better than if I had not hired Mr. Casey. I was so pleased with the results and his staff encouraged and informed me of every single thing along the way. Mary Stephens was my case manager and she was so wonderful! Every question I had was answered right away and she walked me through every step. They all just put my mind at ease! I am so grateful for all that Mr. Casey and his office did for me! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!

Cole and his staff set me at ease from the day of our first meeting. I had hired another attorney but did just not get the feeling that i was in good hands and so I decided to make a change. My decision to make the change proved to be a very wise one as the outcome of my case could not have been better. Charges dropped and a fine to be paid. In 18 month Cole said to give him a call and he would get the infraction removed from my record.
I am grateful I found Coles firm and grateful he was able to extricate me from the very unpleasant and stressful situation I found myself in. I especially appreciated not feeling judged for the poor decisions that got me into the situation in the first place.
I would highly recommend Cole and his firm if you find yourself in need of a aggressive and confident DUI/DWI attorney.
Thank you Again Cole.

Mr. Casey and his team are without a doubt the best. From the moment I walked through the doors of their office until my case was finally resolved, I felt I was in excellent hands. They handled every detail of my case, and they did it with professionalism and attention to detail. Throughout all the filings, hearings, and court appearances, they made sure my time and schedule were minimally impacted, and I was able to enjoy my life while my case was being handled. Not only knowledgeable and tough in the court room, they are also very personable and accessible. I always felt like I was heard, understood, and cared about. I was constantly given accurate updates, and they patiently answered all of my questions.
While being very positive and supportive, they are also very realistic with their advice, possible outcomes, and strategies. From the beginning, I knew they were familiar with the San Diego county legal-scape because they clearly laid out all the possible pitfalls and their contingency plans for these possibilities. At no point did I feel matters were not foreseen, and that I was not in very capable hands.
With Mr. Casey and team at the helm, my case ended very favorably, and I hope they will work out for you too.

I had my first DUI in August 2012. The case itself was a complete sham and cole Casey's law office knew it. The ordeal itself took sometime but in the end I got everything exsponged from my record and got my drivers license immediately reinstated with no restrictions

I was arrested for my second DUI august 2012. I knew who to call for my lawyer Cole Casey. He represented me for my first DUI back in 2004 and I remembered the outstanding job he did for me then. For my second DUI I was looking at jail time and community work service. I informed Cole Casey about my concerns and very busy work schedule. In the end Cole Casey got the job done again. I knew I could count on him.The outcome was way better than I could have expected no jail time or work service. I appreciate everything Cole Casey and his staff have done for me. Also by taking this difficult time of getting this DUI and letting me continue with my life and daily obligations less stressful.They are very professional and always looking out for your best interest. I wouldn't have considered using any one else to represent me. Thank you again Cole Casey and Staff.

Grateful! You don't realize in the beginning how everything will work out. This was my second DUI and cost was well worth it! Cole Casey is very knowledgeable of law but also has respectful relationships with the courts and each DA. Understands and respects our law enforcement, as well as giving them training! Example: good friend in a very high profile position at worldwide company based in San Diego called in middle of night. First person after bail was get him to Cole Casey!
I will make a statement that you will only realize if you choose the the wrong attorney and don't call Cole Casey!!!!
Case is settled and have classes to enroll and had to have 3 days of house arrest and bracelet. Here is the point! Sheriff department joked about the court system making me do this. Next point: if I didnt have Cole Casey as my attorney I would spent a lot of time in jail and would have had bracelet/3 times a day breatherlizer for 3 to 9 months. One executive that was in group reporting had over a year of doing this. He had the wrong attorney. Point I am making is that you won't see how bad will be by picking the wrong attorney in the beginning.

Mr. Glenn Cole Casey & staff were absolutely professional, caring, and, discrete from the very beginning! They kept me apprised of all issues, court actions, and DMV responsibilities. They were very flexible to meet with me to discuss every step in the process and let me know what my duties and responsibilities were in this case. I am very pleased with their hard work in my DUI case and they were able to get my DUI charge reduced to a "Reckless Driving" offense. Thank you so much!

Mr. Casey, associates and staff were all very helpful. My case lasted a year and a half and I live out of the state but was still always well informed of what was going on and about important dates. Overall the case became a success after a long process and a five day hard fought trial. Moreover I was most pleased throughout my case because of the confidence I had because of who I hired. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr.Casey and firm to anyone in need of help.

I, stupidly, managed to acquire a 3rd DUI, whilst on probation for a 2nd one in Orange County, CA.
Cole Casey's law firm was recommended to me, ironically, by my bail bonds firm, who had never met him either, but had heard good things from their clients.
I interviewed 4 law firms in the height of my panic, just days after my arrest....what can I say? Mr. Casey and his staff blew the other law firms out of the water, from my initial introduction through to the final, agonizing few months.
Professionalism and knowledge were instrumental in my choice of representation and it all started with Ashley, who answered the phone on my first call to Cole Casey's firm. She was so patient as she listened to my tears and heard the panic in my voice and was able to book, right then and there, an appointment with Cole.
When I met with him, my panic immediately subsided a little. There is no B.S with this man. DUIs are the ONLY type of law that he represents and that is what I was seeking. He put me at ease, telling me that he had never had a client with a 3rd DUI ever end up doing jail time. He was kind, patient, friendly with me, yet I could tell that there was a Tiger roaring inside him, ready to defend me.
My choice of Cole Casey's law firm was the best money I have ever spent. Between him and Alisha Woods, who carefully monitored and represented me at all the DMV hearings, I knew that I couldn't have been in better hands.
I listened to everything that he told me to do, from wearing a SCRAM bracelet for 275 days and attending group therapy sessions and, true to his word, after following all his instructions, a year to the day of my arrest, the DA (prosecution) decided to file no charges against me.
It was the longest year of my life, living in limbo and waiting to see if I would be charged with a 3rd DUI and the outcome couldn't have been better.
Mr. Casey treated me, the client, as if I were the only client his firm represented, gave me his own, personal cell phone number to call anytime and between him and his staff, I knew that I couldn't have had better representation behind me. With his years of working DUIs in San Diego, he is extremely well known with the courts, the police department and the DA and just having his name representing me I knew made the prosecution know that his client, me, was willing to fight all the way to the bitter end.
Heaven forbid that I would ever end up in this awful position again, there would be no time lost on my part in calling on Mr. Casey to represent me.....I was treated with dignity and respect, something that other law firms sorely lacked.
I sincerely believe that whether you are facing your first or third DUI, that this man and his wonderful staff, will be the best money you ever could spend on something so important.

If you care about your life, career, family, and future, and you are serious about acheiving a favorable outcome in your DUI case, then it is paramount to hire Cole Casey. Most lawyers, especially the "I do everything lawyers" will take DUI cases for a lower fee beacuse they are "easy money." They will devour your retainer fee and plead you guilty a few months later saying, "we fought hard, I got you out of community service, but the DA would not reduce the DUI charge"
Cole Casey and the Fantastic Four took my case to the battle grounds for 9 months to get my charges dropped from a DWI to reckless driving. A DWI would have ended my career and thanks to the whole Cole Casey Conglomerate including: Ashley, Kayla, Alisha, and my all- time MVP, superhero case manager, Mary Stephens, a multi-million dollar professional license has been saved. Mary was the one who kept me informed,was a bridge to Cole and Alisha when they were in trial, and stayed on top of my case to make it an unequivocal success. Thanks again Mary, you do God's work!!!!
My Case was a challenge for many reasons and my BAC was a .13. After my previous lawyer, who bragged about having high Avvo ratings and claimed was he was rated a top lawyer by his peers received my discovery, he said that a reduction in charges was not likely. Even though he left me with no hope and never went to court on my behalf, he took a $1000 fee for emails read by his secretary.
At that point, I knew not just any top lawyer would do; I needed a DUI specialist, I needed the best in San Diego, I needed someone who considers DUI cases hard work and who can bring success when others only see a dead end.
That is why I chose Cole Casey. He gave me hope, he said he would save my career, he embraced a challenge that all lawyers in San Diego considered an impossible case to get reduced. However, he took this fight to the mat for me and grappled until he won!!!Cole is the only lawyer in San Diego worth the retainer fee. Your life and future is too valuable to tarnish and not battle for. Don't put your trust in anyone else.

Mr. Casey took my felony DUI case, out of county, in November 2007. He was able to work with the prosecution to reach an agreement that kept me out of jail. He went to court several times on my behalf since then to try to have the sentence reduced. Finally, in February 2013, he was able to have it reduced to a misdemeanor against the adamant, however blind, will of the prosecution. Cole agreed to see my case to the end and he kept true to his word, all on the initial retainer. If you have a DUI in San Diego, you need to call this man. He is very busy, but if you are patient, you will find that he knows his clients, and he fights for them.

I would absolutely recommend Cole Casey! Before hiring Cole, I spoke with a Public Defender and decided I should talk to private counsel before making any decisions. Cole was the best decision I could have made in hiring an attorney for my DUI with bodily injury to my passenger. He is trustworthy, dependable and gave my family and I the confidence we needed to get through this hard time. Cole's representation was a tremendous relief and if I were to do it all over again, I would hire him in a heartbeat.
I had worked with a couple different law clerks in his office..one of which I had trouble getting timely responses from. Shortly afterwards, I was notified she was going on leave and that Daniel would be the new law clerk on my case and I am so glad he was! He had great communication with prompt responses, and seemed to go out of his way to tell me exactly what needed to be done to get the best possible result in court.
Cole Casey is trustworthy, professional, knowledgeable and experienced. I am so thankful for all of his help, and highly recommend him.

Do not waste your time trying to hire a different lawyer to save a few extra bucks, hire Mr. Casey! He will not just fight hard for your case but he is extremely well respected among many judges in San Diego and this could very likely include the judge you are up against!

One of my really good friends works at a law firm and referred me to Mr. Casey in my time of need. I didn't quite know what to expect and certainly thought I was doomed to live the rest of my life with a D.U.I. My standards are fairly high and I rarely find I am impressed with anyone however from the very first appointment I had with Mr. Casey I was. He and his staff are extremely professional, prompt and proficient in everything they do. After hearing my situation he was immediately able to cite every which way the law was on my side and how he and his team would be able to help me. Every interaction was extremely pleasant and the best part: MR. CASEY WAS ABLE TO GET EVERYTHING DISMISSED, NO D.U.I.!!! He truly is a lifesaver. I have already and will continue to recommend him to anyone who needs his services. THANK YOU MR. CASEY!

I can not be more complimentary here. Glenn Cole Casey runs a top notch law firm with whom you can entrust with any case large or small. I would like to single out Alisha who made a thorough review of my case and guided me in the right direction saving me a tremendous amount of undue grief. Along with Alisha I must also commend the office manager Ashley Linza whose honesty and forthrightness was and is greatly appreciated. A top notch team.

Cole and his team are top notch. They give straight answers, while still giving comfort and sympathy. They handled everything in a cradle-to-grave manner, with a professional touch at every step. OVERALL RATING IS SUPERIOR!
Posted by Kris, a DUI client, Flag
Having Cole represent me was easily the best decision I made in 2012. I always received fast responses and overall great communication!
From day 1, Mr. Casey and his team put me at ease and took away my worries, so that I could focus on supporting my familly and not let this eat me alive inside. A DUI or wet-reckless would have possibly caused me to lose my career and the only way to support my family.
My expectations were definitely exceeded as I was not convicted of either of those charges.
Nothing less than sheer confidence exudes from this agressive BULL of an attorney, which is exactly what you need on your side when facing any type of criminal charge. I am confident in this as I have dealt with many attorneys over the last 15 years, and he is sitting at the top!
This is one fighter you do not want to be up against!
Another sincere THANKS to The Glenn Cole Casey Team!

Cole Casey and his crew helped to turn one of the scariest experiences of my life into something managable. I came to him with my first DUI and he told me the facts about the reality of my case and what he could do for me. I never felt judged, and I really appreciate how straightforward he was with me. Everyone in his office was so genuinely friendly and positive from the moment I walked through the door that I was instantly put at ease. He made it clear that he understands that good people make mistakes, and while the whole DUI process was very intimidating and confusing, Cole or Vivian were always just a phone call away whenever I had any questions or concerns.
While I hope to never need to call upon his expertise a second time, I would not hesitate to hire him as my lawyer again. I have no doubt that he is the best DUI lawyer in San Diego and it is clear that unlike some other lawyers, he truly puts his client's best interest at heart and does everything in his power to help you get through the process and put your case behind you so you can move forward. My immeasurable gratitude goes out to the entire team at Mr. Casey's office. If you get a DUI, go see this guy.

I was recently charged with my second DUI while on probation and was facing harsher penalties. The circumstances around my arrest was highly questionable and I have no doubt that I was going to fight it as my career was on the line. I looked around all of San Diego for highly experienced attorney's and all of them basically gave up knowing second DUI's are difficult to fight. I called Cole Casey's office and he told me that I should speak to him in person. Note that Cole is really popular and has a reputation further research on this will confirm my statements. I quickly went to his office and was greeted by his staff whom made me feel at ease. I had previously worked with an attorney for my first DUI charge who did not do anything for me and basically played the Bait and Switch tactic and found out that he did not even represent me in trial and had others doing his work for him. So having this prior experience I found it difficult to trust Cole in the beginning. Once I explained the story to him he quickly said he would represent me and take the case I worked with a team of people from Ashley, Chris, Mary, Alisha and Cole himself I was updated every time I had questions and they always were happy to make sure I was at ease. Very important they made sure to keep me calm during this whole process. Everything is professional in this firm to the emails, fact findings, evidence gathering to simply being treated as with respect.. My case was probably one of their highlighted cases as it was very interesting as I was told by many of the attorneys. Although we put a lot of fight my case it had to go to trial being scared that I was Cole and his team assured me that they were confident. My whole life was on the line and I had lost the DMV hearing and this was the last straw and knowing stiffer penalties I was needless to say terrified. During trial I would like to say it is understatement to say that Cole and his team were a OUTSTANDING!. When Cole is in the court room you can feel and understand how much of a tough attorney he is. I have read similar reviews on him and was skeptical at first to know how tough Cole is and let me tell you by my experience. Cole is a force to reckon with. His reputation in the court room is in my experience at high standards. He is a fighter and will fight. When all was said they jury deliberated and came out with a Not Guilty! This meant it also overturned my DMV hearing that I lost. I have my life back thanks to Cole and his Elite Team! Thank you Chris, Mary, Alisha, Ashley and to Cole himself! Well respected law-firm and I will highly recommend them! I cannot thank you all enough!

The first person I talked to was Ashley. She knew more than most of the other lawyers I talked to and she was only the office assistant! When I came in I met with Cole and Chris they didn't try to sugar coat my situation. I knew I was up against it and they didn't promise miracles. They only promised their best and they delivered!
Aisha handled my DMV and came up with a great strategy to keep my license. I was informed every step of the process and couldn't be happier with my choice in a law firm. They told me they would be with me until this was off my record and they lived up to it.
I got a great result and this was one of the best firms I've ever worked with.

The most humiliating night of my life was when I got a DUI. I have never been more scared about my future than I was the night of my arrest and the following days. I old a professional license that was terrifed of losing. I called a friend of mine from church whose husband I knew was a well known judge and asked them for a referral. They said Cole Casey, nobody else. I was doubtful that anything could be done to help me. I had a much higher alcohol level than I thought I would, and I caused an accident. I am not proud of this. When I first spoke to Ashley, I was so grateful to have an honest and caring voice on the line to talk to. She did not sugar coat things, but also assured me I was ultimately going to be ok. I really had no idea how anyone could help me, but even before I ever met Mr. Casey and his staff of truly incredible people, I knew my friends had given me a good recommendation. Well, 6 months after that horrible night, I do not have a criminal record. No DUI, nothing. No license suspension ever. Writing this review is the least I can do for this man and his team. I wish I could do more for them. I will tell every person I know about their firm, because they deserve it.

I was not hoping to need a DUI attorney in my lifetime. Sometimes life presents itself in challenging ways. A referral from a friend of a friend led me to Cole Casey and his firm. Very approachable and easy to work with. I feel like I really got to know he and his staff over the 12 - 14 weeks we worked together on my case. Yes my results ended extremely well - case dismissed! Best money I have ever spent. Cole, Alisha, Kayla and his staff are tremendous to work with. If you are reading this you should definitely give them a call.

Mr. Casey and his team impressed me from the minute I walked into his office. They took over management of every aspect of my case, and Mr. Casey was more effective as my advocate than I ever imagined was possible. He is well known and respected by the Court, and is the person you want representing you. I honestly believe the outcome of my case would have been much different without his intervention. Because of his efforts my charges were reduced from felony to
misdemeanor, and my future remains intact.

I am completely satisfied with the representation I received from Cole Casey and his staff. From the initial consultation throughout the entire process I was well informed and confident I had chosen an admirable attorney. Eventually, when I chose to go to trail, I am confident that Cole's courtroom experience influenced the D.A.'s office. Rather than go "toe to toe" with Cole, an offer was made that otherwise would not have been available. Specifically, no DUI and no alcohol related offense. I highly recommend G. Cole Casey, Esq.

3 October 2012: Cole's associate, Alisha Wood, Esq., prevailed in my Administrative Per Se ("APS") DMV hearing, preventing me from having my license suspended while I fight a charge of DUI. I am aware that the DMV administrative hearing process is a very difficult forum for the driver ('respondent"). I had therefore assumed that the DMV hearing was "unwinnable". I could not be happier with the representation I have received to date from Mr. Casey and his firm.

The phone rang and time stood still. My son, who is so talented and capable of being a major contributor to society, had lost his battle to remain sober and was arrested for a 4th DUI. The stakes were more than a lost job, likely jail time and a felony record; his life was at risk!
Cole quickly assessed all the facts and realized a rehab experience was required immediately. The case was highly complex as to medical diagnosis of illness and treatment medications prior to the DUI. Perhaps another great DUI attorney could have done as well in handling the case, but NONE I know could better focus on the key facts of defense and then leverage his/her personal standing with the Court and the DA's Office. Cole's efforts produced the best possible results that i had hoped for my son and the best chance for society that a repeat DUI offense will not occur.

When I was arrested on a DUI charge, I was in a panic. This was my first DUI, but it was going to do severe damage to my career. I met with Cole to discuss the case. He reviewed the details and assured me he could help. Sure enough, with his experience and expertise in DUI cases he was able to negotiate my charge down to a reckless driving. I owe my career and future earning potential to this man. He saved me, and I owe him a huge debt of gratitude. If you need an attorney, I highly recommend you talk to Cole Casey first. Cole will work things out in the most favorable way possible for you.

Cole was there for me during one of the most demeaning and traumatic times in my life. He handled the situation professionally and helped me work through it. I can't thank Cole and his team enough for all the support they have given me and still continue to give. With Cole and team, they treat you with respect and they take each case personally. The great thing about their team is that they are dedicated to helping you through the ENTIRE experience and not simply out to exploit your situation for their benefit as many lawyers who pray on people facing DUI charges often do..
In my case, the time finally came for the charges to be expunged and Cole was there for me again. As fate would have it, instead of expunging the charges from my record, a clerical error caused by a typo (literally the difference of a single period) resulted in a felony firearm related charge being put on my DMV record! Of course I was beside myself and anxious to get the error corrected. Cole's team (Mary & Chris) consoled me and went to the court to negotiate with the commissioner 4 times over several weeks to correct the situation! Every time, they said it was fixed but when I contacted the DMV, they said it was still there. I called their office often bugging them about the situation but they were always courtious. Finally they were actually able to get one of the senior counsel representatives from the DMV to call and apologize for the situation. Just yesterday the DMV confirmed that it has been completely removed from the record. YAY!! :D
If you are in a situation where you need legal counsel in a DUI case, don't hesitate to retain Cole and team! You will not regret it.

I was arrested in Oct. of 2011 for my 3rd DUI in 10 years in CA and for those of you familiar with the penalty it carries a minimum of 120 days in jail. I interviewed 4 attorneys that specialize in DUIs. The first told me to rush a guilty plea through and do the time asap and get it over with and that there was no point in fighting it, I would lose. The second and third attorneys both gave me an elaborate story on how they would use expert toxicologists to prove what I ate and my current stress level because of work caused my BAC to rise. When i met with Cole he said I had to do go above and beyond to not go to jail so he suggested I voluntarily be put on SCRAM (alcohol monitor), enroll in and intensive out patient drug and alcohol rehab program and that i start seeing a one on one drug and alcohol therapist. I did it all and ended up wearing the SCRAM bracelet for 9 months but now just signed a change of plea to do 5 months of Electronic Monitoring (house arrest) which allows me to go to and from work and sleep in my bed and night. Thank God for Cole Casey, Chris Sohovich, and Vivian Ruelas!

A little over a year ago, I was involved in a DUI accident that had me thinking there was no way to move forward from. While incarcerated with little to no hope in my life, I met Matt from Cole's office. Matt immediatly gave me the feeling that I was in great hands and that Cole and team would do everything in their power to work at getting the best possible result out of my case.
When I was released and met Cole, Vivian and Matt, I was overwhelmed with the care that Cole and staff expressed while working in my case. My family and I always felt like we were in the best hands that we could have hired in San Diego.
While working with Cole in my case, he and his staff always kept me informed while working through things as the case went on. I feel that throughout the case, Cole did the best possible job one could do, and I have never once had any regret of hiring Cole Casey. Cole always gave me the most information that he could give me to make the best possible decision for myself and my family. Cole gave me great advice throughout my case while always leaving the final decision up to me.
If you get into a situation where you are looking for a lawyer like Cole, I wouldn't think twice about hiring Cole Casey. If you can be honost, listen to his suggestions, and will do anything to move forward from the situation that you are in, there is no better lawyer to hire than Cole Casey and staff.
My family and I are forever grateful to Cole and his staff and could not even come close to repay them. Cole, Matt and Vivian did a great job in working in my case and always gave me the impression that they sincerely cared about me and my future. Do not hesitate to hire Cole if you need a DUI lawyer.

I am eternally grateful to Cole Casey, Vivian, Matt and all of the professionals in their practice. I made a very significant error in judgment one evening. As a result of some actions that I am not proud of I impacted not just my life, but the lives of others as well. In the days following my accident and arrest I did not think there was a path forward. I was very converned for the individual that I injured in my accident and depressed and remorseful over my actions.
In sitting down in Cole Casey’s office with Matt for the first time, something immediately felt different. This was not just a case for them, not just another client to charge fees, they were interested in the background, the circumstances, the events not only of that night but of the circumstances that lead up to that night. I met Cole shortly thereafter and I was struck by the fact that not only did he want to help, but he was genuinely concerned about the well being of the injured party as well as my family. This was a consistent pattern, Cole always had not only my best interests in mind, but genuine care for the victim I involved. He wanted a solution that allowed all parties to move forward.
Cole was very patient and honest with me. He operates on very simple principles actually. Be open and honest with him, accept responsibility for your part, listen to him and he will do everything possible to get the best outcome for you and your family. My case was very public and Cole also did a great job of keeping me grounded, reminding me that good people can make terrible mistakes and what matters is what we do next.
He never pressured me, always kept me informed, always let me know that when it came to settling the case, it was always my decision. He would provide counsel, but the ultimate decision would be mine. I experienced every range of emotion possible during the case (and still do to this day) and Cole and team helped me maintain my dignity throughout each stage.
Calling Cole Casey my attorney does not do him justice. He is an advocate, he is a mentor, he is a friend and my life would not be the same if I had not retained his services. He has given me the opportunity for a second chance and there simply is no greater gift. And you can’t put a price on that. I truly believe that.
Cole and team are the best and my family and I will never be able to repay them for what they have done for us.

Mr. Casey and his team are not only professional, diligent and polite but provide the fastest client focused results possible. Their tenacity and expertise is unsurpassed by anyone.
This was my first DUI and unfortunately prior to working with Mr. Casey, I retained a not only incompetent attorney but malicious. “She” (not to mention names) kept approximately $2000 providing absolutely nothing for my case. I was under a great amount of stress with the addition of threating emails and calls from this attorney. From my first interaction with Mr. Casey and his staff, all that anxiety was put to rest. They handled all communication with my previous attorney as well as my case allowing me to focus on my life and career.
I have worked with many lawyers in the past and Cole Casey runs an amazing practice. There is not enough words to describe what a great experience I had working with him.

Posted by W, a DUI client, Flag
The circumstances of my DUI arrest were not particularly damning or out of the ordinary. But my profession is such that a DUI would abruptly end my career. In my mind, I wanted the best lawyer possible, regardless of cost, because no retainer fee would compare to the potential amount of money lost due to me being fired from an occupation that I’ve devoted my life to. After careful research and a few other meetings with SD lawyers, I absolutely knew Mr. Casey was my most viable choice. I also solicited the help of a reputable DUI lawyer from my homestate- some 2000 miles away- for a recommendation and he came back with Casey’s name. Impressive. (In all fairness, a LA lawyer came just as highly recommendeda but I strongly discourage anyone from retaining a lawyer outside the city of arrest as the lawyer’s working relationship with the city attorney’s office could be the difference in your case).
I must say I initially found Mr. Casey’s confidence in beating the charges a bit unfounded in only our first meeting, but I figured if your lawyer isn’t motivated, then you’ve lost before you even stepped onto the field. And I was dead wrong- his confidence is completely founded.
Mr. Casey and co. fought tooth and nail for over a year to get the charge reduced to a reckless. The city attorney kept telling them “no” after “no” but he wasn’t deterred, even when I was. It was an emotional rollercoaster but his calm demeanor eased my worries after every talk.
You might hear from other DUI arrestees that a lawyer is futile, as SD law guarantees a conviction, regardless of the evidence. Lord knows I heard that at every class at my DUI program. This is simply false. These testimonies show you there is hope; don’t let the system convince you otherwise.
Mr. Casey’s firm saved my career and I am confident that no other SD lawyer could have accomplished what he did.

After being arrested for a DUI I was referred to Mr. Casey by a personal friend and he has been there to help me every step of the way. He is very knowledgeable and professional. Although my DUI case could not be dismissed completely he was able to make the process as easy and smooth for me as possible. Even after the case had been closed, he has been there for me with any other questions or concerns that I have had regarding my probation for the DUI. I've worked with other lawyers in the past, and ultimately they don't really do anything for you and have been a complete waste of time and money, and don't give you the results your looking for. Trying to find a lawyer is definitely not an easy process, espcially trying to find one that you can actually trust. Rest assure that he is the right man for the job. He actually cares about his clients and does everything in his power to give them the justice that they deserve.
Even a year after my DUI case, my car had been involved in a hit and run accident and he was able to get all charges dropped so that it would not affect my DUI probation, AND he was always available to answer my calls. This man works MIRACLES!!! Don't bother trusting your freedome with anyone else, Cole Casey gets it done!

I am the father of two daughters. They are the world to me. When one of them got into a DUI situation I was scared for her. I am a retired SDPD officer and I know the system can just chew you up. I trust very few people with my girls. Mr. Casey I trust. My daughter is intelligent and her picking Mr. Casey was up to her. But he was there for her every step of the way. He said my wife and I could contact him at any time and he came through with everything he said. Now I hope I never have to use an attorney again but for a DUI situation, this guy knows the lay of the land. You want peace of mind use Mr. Casey.

I was arrested on suspecion of DUI and Hit and Run. After my release, I was contacted by over fifty law firms who what to represent me. I did my homework and carefully chose Attorney Cole Casey's office based on his knowledge, professionalism, and expertise. He selected the best strategy and worked every little detail on my case. He handled every step of the trial brilliantly, from the jury selection, witness cross-examination, to the closing argument. I was so proud and confident having him by my side throughout the whole process. His friendly, knowlegeable and professional staff treated me with respect and answered all my questions and concerns in a timely manner.
I was facing jail time, enormous fines, and driving privilege restrictions, but thanks to Mr Casey's help, all the charges were dismissed.
I would highly recommend Mr Cole Casey to everyone in need of a Superior Defence Attorney.
I'm so grateful to Mr Casey and all his staff. I can not thank them enough.

Mr Casey handled my case in a very professional and admirable manner, ultimately leading to a dismissal of my case. Having my first experience with a lawyer been with Cole was an enjoyable experience. Mr. Casey's office staff was also very informative and always relayed messages or dealt with issues in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend this law office for any individual who might find themselves in a difficult position with the law like I did.

Mr. Casey, hands down is the best defense DUI lawyer in Southern California. Cole is a true "fighter" and he never gave up on my case.
My DUI case was incomprehensible demoralizing and complicated, yet Cole took my case with confidence, determination and professionalism. In addition, Cole's staff was always helpful and very supportive. I highly recommend this law firm to anybody who wants a NOT GUILTY verdict.
The end results of my trial were:
1. Not guilty to driving under in influence.
2. Not guilty of having a BAC over 8%.
3. Not guilty of having a BAC over 1.5
Yes, Cole Casey is Brilliant!!

I cannot express my gratitude for the services of Mr. Casey's law firm and practice.
I had an extremely involved and complicated case, due to the knowledge, skill and expertise of Mr. Cole Casey he immediately knew from the beginning how to handle the situation. I had previously been retained two former attorney's prior to retaining Mr. Casey and it was not only a waste of time, but a waste of my money and resources. After being totally humiliated by Dan Smith at the United trial group, I was exhausted and Mr. Cole Casey was my absolute last resource. I wish I would have come across his service from the beginning, as it would have saved me valuable time and peace of mind.
Mr. Casey's entire team is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and kind. Every time I appeared in their office, they made it a point to ensure that I was comfortable and never did I feel any negative judgement from anyone about my situation. They have a very highly confidential practice and even the communications amongst the staff was extremely positive. The entire team has a synergy, that was definitely lacking at the two previous attorney's I had retained prior to retaining Mr. Casey.
Not once did I get the feeling that they were trying to "Sell" me or "make a quick buck". Mr. Casey's calm demeanor, patience and knowledge is unmatched in comparison by far.
It was such a relief and pleasure to work with a professional team who all seemed to enjoy their roles and support of their clients.
If ever I had to refer an attorney & practice, it would be Mr. Glenn Cole Casey. Don't waste your time not knowing if the team you're retaining will be worth the "savings" or "time", its your life and future, entrust it to someone who has the skill, ability, resources, proven track record, and not to mention proper & appropriate connections and professional affiliations like, Mr. Casey, to ensure you the highest level of protection, validity and best outcome for your case.
If it weren't for the services of Mr. Casey, my situation would have not been successfully handled at all. I am confident that Mr. Casey & his team are more than prepared to handle ANY situation involving DUI components. Like previously mentioned, my situation was extremely complicated and sensitive in that it crossed several jurisdictions, and after several failed attorney retention attempts, I finally found Mr. Casey and wished I had found him first. Mr. Casey made me feel very comfortable and reassured me through out the entire process that everything would be OK. The team never got tired of me calling and asking questions. They were very prompt with following up and even checking up to make sure I understood everything and to answer any questions I may have had.
Mr. Casey's Open Door policy gave me the reassurance that they weren't hiding anything or taking advantage of people. No matter how upset or afraid I got with my case, Mr. Casey & his team, never once made me feel insignificant or small for my lack of knowledge or understanding, they were very diligent in explaining the various processes to me over and over until I got it, and understood.
Another thing, Mr. Casey's confidence never came off as arrogance and he gave plenty of room for me to ask questions and address any concerns I had by validating my point of view and informing me of correct procedures. Mr. Casey was very kind, and extremely helpful because he is an Expert in his field and truly knows what he is doing.
Absolutely positively retain Mr. Cole Casey, he is not only the best, but has ability to prove it, not only that, your future is worth having the best with such a serious matter.
I am more than pleased with the services I received from Mr. Casey and his team!

I was arrested on a second DUI during the probationary period of my first DUI. Needless to say, I was terrified of the consequences. Mr. Casey was able to plea to a wet reckless for me, which I've been told is a very difficult task under these circumstances. Not only does it make a difference with the state of CA, classes, service and fines, but it's also a major reduction in my overall level of stress.
I can't thank him enough for his hard work and attention to my case. If I had listened to everyone else, and gotten a "cheap" lawyer, I guarantee that lawyer would not have gone to bat for me the way Mr. Casey did, and thus, I would not have had the outcome that I was awarded. The old adage is true--you get what you pay for. Mr. Casey was the best investment I've made in long time.

Cole Casey, Vivian and team Casey from the start have been nothing short of professional. Cole gave me very good advise and after following his advise, everything has worked out well. Cole answered all of my questions completely. He took personal interest in my welfare and I never felt like just a number.
His invaluable knowledge of the system and his relationships with the people in the system create a path to give you the best deal with the court system. Cole is a straight shooter, he will tell you were you are at and what to expect. This is an attorney I would highly recommend.

Mr. Casey's knowledge of the way the court system works helped me understand what was really expected of me as a client. Mr. Casey immediately put the paperwork in motion for my case. He also advised me and guided me to the programs that would be required to complete my case in a timely manner. I was able to start my treatment program months before it became a court requirement. Because of this, I was ahead of the way the court system works. It was such a relief to not worry about missing more time from work or family at a later date. The service provided regarding my case exceeded my expectations and I would refer Mr. Casey to anyone needing a D.U.I. attorney. I was well satisfied with the ending results. Mr. Casey has my total respect and trust and in my opinion, is the consummate legal counsel.

My son had one drink 2 weeks before his 21st birthday and was caught at a sobriety check point. He was not legally drunk, but in CA you can't have anything and drive before your 21. It was a scary time for us because there was a possibility of my son going to jail for a week or so, losing his license for a year, and losing his job because of all this. When we reached out to Cole, he took it over immediately, got his license back and the charges reduced to such a minor degree that they haven't affected my son at all, even with his insurance rates.
Cole did everything. We didn't even have to go to court. Thank you Cole. You made it seem so easy. We are truly grateful to you.

Cole and his staff are true professionals! I was scared to hire a DUI lawer due to the opinions of others & just general "hear say". Cloe & his crew made me so confident in their knowledge and their sincere care for me, I was compelled to trust in his abillity to help me, and help me he did!!! Everything he told me was the truth, right on, and true. My DUI charges were DROPED! Cole and his team fought for me...and we won. Those boxing gloves hanging in his office aren't "for show". Cole is a fighter! Thank you again Cole! If anyone wants to call me to hear my voice personally, my cell number is (760) 455-6474

Cole, Matt, and Vivian, I cannot express enough what gratitude I have for all of your hard work and diligence in getting the best possible outcome in my case...NOT GUILTY!! This was a very challenging and stressful time in my life but I never doubted that your team wasn't doing there very best to resolve my case. I spoke with several attorneys prior to retaining Mr Casey and he was the first one not to seem to be trying to just take my money. He had a no BS kind of attitude and shot straight with me. A lot of these guys will just tell you what you want to hear to get your money and this isn't the case with Cole. They handled everything from the DMV hearing to the trial. It was obvious while watching Cole during my trial that he is very skilled and passionate at what he does. If you are ever in the unfortunate position of needing an attorney to assist you with a DUI case, I would asolutely recommend know one other than Cole Casey and his amazing staff. Anyone can contact me through his office for a personal refferal. Thank you all so much again for all of your hard work. I am forever greatful.....

I would highly recommend Cole Casey. Two years ago I was charged with a DUI and was referred to Cole by a friend. The first hearing for my case I lost but Cole recommended that we appeal. We did appeal and we won, all my charges were dropped. The entire staff including Matt, Erica, and Vivian was proffessional, proactive, and kept me updated and informed throughout the process. I felt confident that they were working hard for me and were determined to win my case. When Matt called to give me the good news he was as happy as I was. This firm was a pleasure to work with considering my circumstance.

I would recommend him wholeheartedly and cannot say enough positive things about Mr. Casey and his practice. Thanks again Cole!!

Well let me begin by saying that taking one of my worst nightmares and making the absolute best of it, that is one of the ways to describe Mr. Casey and his knowledgeable and responsive staff. From my first call and visit I knew I was in the right hands and hired Mr. Casey. The staff was friendly and professional and made me quite comfortable. I was taken care of every step of the way with some fabulous results along the way that I did not even expect, and that was one of the many bonus , and perks along the way of this otherwise unfortunate experience. Ericka was great to work with and her dedication to winning my case and her aggressive research that won my case with the positive results. That was exciting!! Matt was super to give me calls along the way to keep me updated with Erickas work. Vivian and all the ladies in the office or on the phone always made me feel and I was of the utmost importance. This journey with the Law firm of Mr. Cole Casey and his staff was everything and more to get me through a tough and very confusing time. Do not hesitate and call Mr Cole Casey.

After my DUI arrest I called Mr. Casey on the recommendation of another attorney friend of mine. It was not only the right call but turned out to be the best money I ever spent. I was arrested in Nov 2009 and through all the months of DMV hearings, and District Attorney hearings, etc, Cole and his staff were always right there. From the very beginning his staff was available to review the entire process, what to expect in terms of hearings and time tables, and in general temper all the the anxiety and stress that accompanies this process. I always felt I had an advocate and a place to turn when questions or other stresses arose. His office always responded to my calls in a timely fashion and the biggest thing for me, was after the case was resolved with the DA, Cole and his staff didn't abandoned me when there was unfinished business with the ever-persistant and omnipotent DMV. My case was droppped by the DA as Cole was able to clearly present my innocence. The DMV was another matter and he continued to represent me until that part was resolved as well. Cole Casey was a true advocate and confident, his office very professional and diligent, and I will always be grateful for his/their service.

I knew once I hired this firm that I made the right choice. Cole came highly recommended by a Superior Court judge, and I am forever in debt to that judge for the recommendation. His knowledge of this area of law is extensive, but I assume anyone could probably learn the same things. However, the passion and intensity that Cole and Matt showed me was unique to them...it was clear to me that not only are these guys great at what they do, the genuinely love what they do. I ended up pleading guilty to reckless driving, not a wet reckless, just regular reckless, and Cole was gung ho to put my case in front of a jury....which I thought was really cool. I would recommend this firm to anyone. Go with the best, trust your gut feeling, you will be glad you did.

I did a lot of research before selecting Cole as my DUI attorney. Met with 7 attorneys before selecting him.
I immediately like his direct, no non-sense approach to my case as well as his absolute candor with me about the reality of my situation. My DUI arrest was no fairy tale, Reckless Driving, DUI at a .17 BAC, you get the idea. He helped me to understand my options and make the most intelligent decisions at each step of my case.
Cole's courtroom prowess is nothing short of amazing. He destroyed the city attorney's case in court, I was almost embarrassed for the city attorneys office after the fact.
Result: Case Dismissed.....
The moral of this story: Don't drink and drive, ever, ever, ever. You do not want this kind of heat on you. Not only is it stupid, but also the constitution almost doesn't apply to you if you do once in the legal system. Learned a big lesson from my mistake, despite my incredible outcome thanks to Cole.
Regret aside, I have gotten out of bed every morning since with a valid drivers license, no criminal record and driven to work watching the guys in the orange jump suits picking up trash along the road-side saying to myself "Thank God for Cole Casey"!

I would never recommend this attorney. Took $7500 and set a trial. At the court house waiting for the judge he told me I didn't have a chance based upon my case and he can't do anything and that I should just plead guilty. He offered to go back to court in 2 1/2 years to ask for the probation to be reduced from 5 to 2 1/2 years. He could have told me this before. No compassion, not trustworthy. Wouldn't buy a used car from him.

I did my homework on DUI attorneys and am glad I did. I hired Cole Casey, and paid a few dollars more than it seemed everyone else charged, but I had a very good feeling about Cole and his firm. The firm seemed very "legitimate" from the first time I spoke with Matt, one of Cole's lawyers. He had been referred by several other lawyers that I know. All I can say is thank God I went with him and stayed clear of all the bargain basement lawyers, especially those that sent me their BS in the mail. My case was dismissed in January of 2010. 100% gone. The DMV tried to suspend my license and Cole and Matt prevented that from happening too. Cole's reputation is outstanding and I see why...it is well deserved. One funny thing is that after I hired him, 2 of the other lawyers I had interviewed each called me to follow up and see who I hired. I told them Cole and they BOTH said "well, he IS the best" and told me that Cole is who THEY would hire if they were in DUI trouble. (I wonder why they didn't tell me that from the beginning ??) Do your homework people. When you ask around, especially if you have friends in the legal field, they will almost always direct you to Cole's firm, and they should. Excellent, excellent attorney.

My personal situation resulted in a complete dismissal with out requiring me to set foot in a court room.

In April of 2009, I contacted Mr. Casey regarding a poorly conducted and fabricated arrest. Upon meeting Mr. Casey, my peace of mind and faith was restored. He clearly guided me through the legal process and assured me that he and his highly professional team would get me through the ordeal with a desired outcome. Mr. Casey defended my case so successfully that it was dropped entirely this month in 2010. I felt that he as well as his entire staff was concerned and dedicated to the case. I was constantly informed on the details of the case during the entire process. I was left feeling confident and at ease until the final outcome proved worthwhile.

My wife and I knew from the minute we shook hands with Cole that he was the person who was going to defend us! Cole Casey, Matt Terry, and his OUTSTANDING Team went above and beyond to assist with our DMV Hearing and DUI case which went to TRIAL. Cole and his team are very passionate about defending their clients and did not miss anything along the way to getting us a "Not Guilty" verdict from a jury. Cole was very quick to catch everything which was said or testified to, then turned around and used it appropriately later on to our advantage. Perhaps you have heard the saying "Innocent until proven guilty!" Well, in our case, it was our word against three police officers. Cole did a superb job at bringing out the facts of our case and put it on display for the jury. His tenacity and well demeanored character was well accepted and I believe was the deciding point towards proving our credibility against the likes of three police officers. The next best thing to hearing "NOT GUILTY" was the fact that Cole never asked for any additional payment as he stated when he first met us. I HIGHLY recommend Cole and feel that I not only found a great lawyer, but also a friend who is passionate about the law and doing what is right!

I made a stupid mistake. Mr. Casey and his firm were VERY frank with me about what could be done in my situation. He gave me hope, without blowing a bunch of BS smoke to get me to hire him, like the other few lawyers I met with seemed to do. I was pleased with the outcome, it was better than I ever expected. As an attorney myself, I know how so many clients have unreasonable expectations, and tend to blame the lawyer for everything, so I tried not to be that type of client. I am also sure I drove their office crazy but they were patient and did their best to answer my questions. I don't normally write reviews, but I think I owe at least that to Cole. He's a good guy and a damn good lawyer.
