    Breathalyzer inaccuracies

    Having wrecked her car and getting a charged with DUI we did not know if my wife even had a case. The breathlizer read .36 so something had to be wrong. Darryl was able to prove the gas fumes from the wreck altered the Readings on the breathlizer test. In addition he was able to have her previous DUI removed from her record after finding it to be filed incorrectly. The case was dismissed. It was amazing how tenacious Darryl was to help us resolve this issue. We are grateful to have found a lawyer that went above and beyond for us! he has even given excellent advice throughout the years. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for Representation!

    Best Attorney for Your Case

    Mr. Genis is very knowledgeable and experienced in his field. I had consulted with a few different attorneys and all of them made me feel uneasy. But, Mr. Genis was very helpful and made me feel like I was in good hands. He explained everything clearly, what I was up against and what we can do about it. You should keep in mind that once you are arrested for a DUI, you do not have control over the situation anymore. Your best bet is to find a good and reliable attorney for the process. Mr. Genis made me feel very comfortable and I stopped stressing about what will happen next. The case lasted over two years and the Law Offices of Darryl Genis kept me up to date the whole time. I never even had to go to court, which was perfect since I live hours away from the area. Mr. Genis is sometimes very busy with other cases, but we were always able to find the time to speak when I had questions. In the end, Mr. Genis was able to reduce my sentence from a DUI to a Dry Reckless. I would recommend Mr. Genis to anyone who needs a DUI attorney.

    excellent service

    I want to commend Darryl Genis for his professional attitude, the quick service and results that were accomplished. In my case there was a situation of too many traffic violations in a short time frame and Mr. Genis was able to remove two potential fines of my record by appearing in court on my behalf and mitigate the situation in such a way that two dismissals were generated. I am appreciative of of his professional service and can recommend him to anyone in a similar circumstance.

    The best in town!

    I was referred to Mr. Genis by a friend after I received a DUI from a DUI checkpoint. Mr. Genis broke down how he would attack the case and what I could expect from him, and boy did he deliver. After blowing a .09 and hiring Mr. Genis, he took over the case so that I never had to appear in court, argued regarding how my rights were compromised and bargained with the DA to get my charges down to an infraction! It's no wonder why he is the most effective and sought after DUI attorney in Southern California.

    DUI Nightmare

    Upon receiving my first DUI, I was terrified. I had never been in any trouble before and felt panic and anxiety set in as I had no idea what to do. I contacted several attorneys in the area, but ultimately I felt as though Mr. Genis was the most prepared to fight for me so that this mistake didn't ruin my future. He handled every aspect of my case with exceptional care and attention and every time I spoke with him or his assistants, I felt reassured. Ultimately Mr. Genis bargained with the DA and I saw more than satisfactory results. Thanks to Mr. Genis, my life was not destroyed by one mistake and I would recommend him a thousand times over.

    Best DUI Lawyer!

    I hired Darryl Genis after I was stopped at a checkpoint in Santa Barbara. Though I only had a few drinks and my blood alcohol level was low, I knew I was in deep and needed some expert advice. I work as a nurse and thought that I would completely lose my livelihood over this. Darryl is extremely knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable and at ease from the very beginning! He even went above and beyond in helping me with my case with the nursing board. I was able to remain an RN, keep my drivers license intact and he even won a motion that got my blood test evidence thrown out! I could not be happier with the experience I have had with Darryl Genis and his staff!

    Honest advice for a how to deal with a 2nd Dui....

    I utilized a public defender for a DUI in July 2014 and pleaded guilty. In April I was charged with another DUI. This has been hell, the stress and shame have been overwhelming. While I would love nothing more than to just accept my consequences, my responsibilities at home and the potential jail time drove me to consider hiring an attorney to advocate for reduced sentence. I sold all of my vehicles, accept responsibility and am involved in AA. The first attorney I spoke with came across as very busy and offered to go-thru-the-motions in exchange for $3000 (all my savings) but she didn't have time to tell me the benefit of hiring her vs. a public defender. Darryl was in court when I called but he got back to me early afternoon. I explained my situation... and I was blown away. He explained that given the circumstances a public defender would be a better choice. He listened to me fully without interrupting, asked me about my finances and explained that using my last savings to "roll the dice" may not be in my best interests. I was already leaning in the same direction but it was heartwarming to meet someone who wasn't more interested in their own financial gain then the well being of a potential client. This man is diamond amongst the rough. He didn't rush me even when he realized I probably wouldn't become a client... I feel good about the direction I am going now... and in a situation that brings up so much uncertainty, that is worth a 5 star rating. Thank you Darryl. I will keep you in mind if I meet someone who needs help.

    Mr. Genis is the man!

    In December I was pulled over turning into my community for "expired registration" even though it wasn't but because I am from Nevada our registration sticker is different and the cop thought it was expired. Long story short, because I am under 21 the cop gave me a DUI for .02%. I am a college student who works full time, I know I should't have even had a sip of anything and drive but it happened. I was freaking out because I didn't want my parents to find out and I just wanted to take care of everything myself. I researched all lawyers in Santa Barbara, and Mr. Genis was the ONLY one that wanted to meet me in person. As soon as I met him and we talked, I knew he was the one. He was so caring and generous , he let me know that nothing is 100% but he will do everything he can to help me not loose my license. Through out the whole process Mr. Genis and his assistance have been keeping me informed with everything that is happening with my case. They always reply so quickly, and I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. In the end three months later, Mr. Genis won my case, and I was found not guilty. I can't thank Mr. Genis and his team enough for helping me go through this terrible thing and that I can finally put it all in my past and move on. If something like this happened to you, seriously just call Mr. Genis go see him for yourself and you will see how wonderful he is. He TRULY cares about his clients, and he will go above and beyond for you.
