The best of the best. Very happy to have had Michael Fremont represent me on my DUI case. He supported me through this devastating experience, and proved himself to be a well qualified attorney who made the difference and won my case. Very pleased. Excellent representation.
DID NOT READ MY CASE FILE, MISREPRESENTATED MY PERSONAL INFORMATION AND WHAT LED TO THE DUI ARREST. QUOTED STATUES THAT WERE IRRELEVANT TO THE CASE, WAS OVER CONFIDENT AND EGOISTIC WHICH LED HIM TO LOSE MY CASE TO A DISTRICT ATTORNEY WITH TEN MONTHS EXPERIENCE.
I highly recommend Michael J. Fremont if you're ever charged with DUI. He is highly experienced and knowledgeable in this area. When my case went to trial, he did a lot of research on my it and previous cases as precedents beforehand. I sat next to him at the defendant's table. He was surrounded by stacks of papers and a legal pad. During the proceedings, he was diligently highlighting things and taking notes, all while listening to the witness testimony and arguments presented by the prosecutor. Every few minutes, he would poke his head up to raise an objection. As it came time to argue his side, he presented it n a highly skilled and informed manner. He raised as many challenges as he could to suppress the state's evidence. In the end, my case was dismissed. Michael Fremont is very dedicated and accessible, allowing you to get in touch with him at almost any time during the day (as long as he's not in court.) All in all, he is very professional and effective, and I recommend him for any DUI offense.
If you ever have a DUI, you MUST hire Michel Fremont. I was accused of a second DUI and he was able to suppress evidence including having my blood test and Breathalyzer results rendered inadmissable. Not only was I not convicted of the DUI, I only had to pay a $200 fine. He is extremely knowledgeable and always prepared. He went to court numerous times on my behalf and the reasonable amount of money I paid him saved me thousands of dollars on the back end. He even gives you access to his cell phone if you need him. I had read the rave reviews about him before, however, he far exceeded my expectations. FANTASTIC attorney!!! Hire him please if you are in trouble and he will work his magic for you!
Mike Fremont helped me take a serious DUI felony and get it reduced to a misdemeanor allowing me to retain my 16 year military career. Desperately needed help and he answered, even though the case was in Riverside County. Thanks Mike!
Michael J. Fremont has represented me on two separate occasions. Mr. Fremont is a true professional. His compassion was well received. I experienced successful outcomes with each case. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, proficient and caring lawyer, this is your man!
Charged with two felonies. Fought em! Now two misdemeanors. The law was on my side, and fortunaty Mr. Fremont was as well. He certainly understood the legalities in and out.Super grateful i chose well. Nobody ever wants to be in that position, but it can happen, and if/when it does, his number is a really good one to have in your contacts.
I hired Mike for 2 DUIs. I got arrested for a 2nd one while the 1st one was still pending with the court. He informed me of possible outcomes and kept me informed throughout the case. My DUI's took about 1 year. I wanted it that way and he found ways to drag it out. For my 2nd one, I was not driving and I was arrested a block away. He was able to work out a deal so that I only had to do 1st offender DUI class, and he defeated DMV! My license was fully reinstated (not just restricted) and my DMV does not show 2 DUIs. Only 1 for the one I truly deserved. My cases were very complicated. It wasn't a simple DUI case. Even folks at the CA DMV Mandatory Action Unit didn't believe at first how I got my license reinstated for my 2nd arrest. He took advantage of the fact that I had dragged out the 1st court case and timed it perfectly with my 2nd one. This man is truly knowledgeable and will do whatever he can to make it work for you. If he can't, he'll tell you he can't. He doesn't promise anything he can't deliver.
Before hiring Mr. Fremont, I spoke with several top DUI attorney's, most of them were very expensive, some did not make me feel that they would handle my case personally. Mr. Fremont and his staff always kept me in the loop, answered all my questions and were available every time I reached out to them through out the 6 month process. I am driving now with no restriction after being found not guilty of the DUI charges.
I highly recommend Michael Fremont. He has covered all my DUI's and he was great. On my first case I was looking at a 9 month alcohol program due to my B.A.C., but Fremont was able to work a deal and I only did 3 months in the alcohol program. 2 years later, I got another DUI. I called Fremont and he took action quickly. Once again, due to my B.A.C. I was was looking at 1 month in jail, but Fremont was able to get me 6 days and I did my time on the weekends! I was able to go to work during the week and on the weekend I would turn myself in. Excellent deal! 2 years later (yes, I know, I have a problem with drinking and driving!) I got caught speeding 94 MPH on a highway. It was almost midnight and I only had a restricted Driver License. I refused to blow in the breathalyzer. The CHP took me to a lab in Oceanside and they told me if I refused they were going to forcefully strap me down to a chair and they were going to withdraw blood out of me. At that point I did not want another charge on top of me, so I let them take blood out of me. After getting out of the tank I contacted Fremont. Once again, he was on top of it fast. After he reviewed the police report, surveillance cop dash video, the B.A.C. test, and a lot of other things, I was finally ready for my hearing. Mr. Fremont SAVED my life. He saved my future because he was able to get me a Wet and Reckless instead of a 3rd DUI. The CHP screwed up by taking me to the lab in Oceanside and Mr. Fremont noticed that right away. I am NOT doing 180 days in jail! He saved me $1,500 in fines. He was phenomenal on my 3rd case. Another great news from this case is that I do not have to redo my alcohol classes. Mr. Fremont and the Judge worked a deal and they agreed to run the alcohol program concurrent from the previous DUI which I will be done in couple months.
Fremont does an excellent job! He will review your case very carefully and that is great about him. He is very affordable! Do not hesitate to hire him for a DUI case. He dedicates his job to DUI's so that should say it all. He is an all around good humanitarian.
A message to Fremont: Thank you so much for all your help! This will be the last time I will be in contact with you regarding any further DUI. I am no longer behind the wheel while intoxicated.
