    Jasen is hardworking, responsible, fair, and honest. He doesn't sugarcoat anything, which I think is very important when you've got legal issues. Jasen cuts right down to the matter at hand. As my lawyer, he knew immediately what to do with my DUI and took care of everything swiftly. I didn't have to wait too long for things to be processed in my case. Most importantly, whenever I had a question, Jasen always responded right away. I highly recommend Jasen B. Nielsen.

    Someone recommended Jasen to me when I got a Dui. I had never done anything in the past to end up needing a lawyer and I wasn't sure what to do. It was scary and traumatizing and I was lost, wondering what was the next step. He met with me and gave me all the information I needed, helping me with any questions and in the end giving me a break down of what my options were and what he could do for me. He was reasonably priced and, knowing it would all be taken care of by someone who had dealt with this situation several times, was a huge relief. I followed his instructions and less than 2 yrs later he contacted me again to follow up with getting the charges expunged off my record. Getting and dealing with a Dui was terrible, but Jasen completely handled it for me and I never had to go to court or back to jail. The Dui is no longer on my record. I was given options on how I wanted to handle everything and I had peace of mind that it would be taken care of properly. I'm so thankful I called him.

    I am so happy a friend of mine recommended me to talk to Jasen Nielsen.
    Since the moment I called him, he started to help me with this process.
    I was scared, depressed, etc, since the night I got my DUI and reading information online was only feeding my fear.
    The day I called Jasen (week after my DUI arrest) I feel relief, soul came back to body.. lol
    We arranged a meeting, and told me the what to do's and what to expect.
    After that point I just followed Jasen's .
    Court putted me on Probation for 3 years.
    Got my license suspended for a month, then restricted till I finished Zona Seca classes. I did 3 months, the minimum amount of classes, (under my circumstances 9 months was the expectation). When finished the classes I got my driving privileges back ;) .
    After 1 year and a half of my conviction, and having accomplished all what the court said (classes, swap, pay fines, etc.) I called Jasen again, and asked about the posibility of Early Termination of Probation.
    He was very careful not promising me anything (as I red most of the motions for early termination are filed 24 months after the day of conviction, 18 months may be too early).
    Two weeks after that phone call, I got a voicemail from Jasen letting me know that was approved and DUI was EXPUNGED from my records.
    GREAT LAWYER and PERSON !!!!!!! Thanks Again.

    P.D: I never went to Court, Mr. Nielsen represented me all the times... yes I never had to go to court !! ;)

    I highly recommend Jasen Nielsen as a lawyer. He was very helpful in getting my case expunged after being on probation for only one year (was supposed to be 3 year probation). He's respectful, nice (unlike other lawyers I have delt with) and was successful in getting what i needed done. CHOOSE HIM! I don't think you will be disappointed.

  • Sleeping in the car DUI

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Pierre

    Got a DUI in Ventura for sleeping in my car. This could have really effected my work as I drive alot. After the courts threw it out the DMV still pursuit it. Jasen was there for me day or night any questions I had for him he had an answer. He worked with my packed work schedule to arrange meetings and was always patient threw out the whole process even when I wasn't. Through all the evidence Jasen had me put together I felt we had a good chance of the DMV throwing this out as well but you can never be to sure. Well the day came and went with our hearing with the DMV and thank god they ended up dismissing it as well. Jasen did just what I hired him to do which was prove my innocents as I was trying to do the right thing that cold November night.

    Jasen, was very happy to receive my call and take the $1500 full payment to defend me in my DUI case. However, he did not represent me the way I thought he would, from reading his reviews on this website. I got my DUI from being pulled over by the CHP because they said I was weaving on the fwy. Performed my test well, scored average to good. I didn't hit anyone, no crashes or accidents. I blew as low as 0.11 and for my first DUI case I still walked out with a DUI conviction. Had to attend 3 months of DUI class. To say he didn't do anything to help. He actually helped me out by filling out the paper work. Got the breathalyzer report to verify if any errors caused the DUI . Also, he arranged the police video from the day of the incident. If I knew any better that he couldn't reduce my case to wet and reckless I would represent myself in court to save the money. If you are thinking about being represented my best advice is to speak to individuals that received prior DUI's for lawyer referrals.

    Jasen Bodie Nielsen’s response: “I don't expect that all of my clients will be happy with the outcome of their case, as the State Bar does not give out a magic wand for passing the bar. But for a review of this nature, questioning my trustworthiness and responsiveness, over a year later, is frustrating. I explained the problems of this case to this client numerous times, went over all of the evidence in person, and the client decided to plead to the DUI charge. The prosecutor did not offer the reduced charge of a wet reckless, and there was no feasible way to change that. Regardless, even with the wet reckless conviction, the DMV still would have required the 3 month school in order for this client to obtain his restricted license. Like I said, I don't expect all of my clients to be happy. But when I've emailed this client over 30 times, with very few responses, and left numerous voicemails, again with a poor response rate, it's complete nonsense to question my responsiveness and ability to keep my client informed. As for my alleged lack of knowledge and trustworthiness, I suggest reading the rest of my reviews to get a better sense of me.”

    We hired Jasen twice in two years. Each time he was able to get the best possible outcome.
    When our son was in high school, he got charged with a Minor In Possession of Alcohol. It was a very stressful time for our family. We were fortunate to find Jasen. After talking to many attorneys, we chose him because of his initial phone consultation, experience, fair price, and ability to relate to our son. Jasen knows the court system and explains the process. He promptly answers questions through emails and phone calls. We were most impressed by his ability to analyze the situation and lead us through the steps that would achieve a great outcome. The MIP was ultimately dismissed!
    Unfortunately, our son got into trouble again. Some times even smart kids make dumb choices and have to learn things the hard way. When partying in college, our son encountered the police. He was afraid of getting in trouble again so he made the split second decision to run away from the scene. Bad idea, he was charged with a severe misdemeanor.
    Fortunately, we knew who to call. We were grateful that Jasen would take the case even though he had to drive a couple hours each way to the college town for court appearances. Much to our relief, Jasen took charge working with our son through this really bad situation. He made several trips and facilitated communication among those involved. The misdemeanor was reduced to an MIP which is a lesser charge and has more appropriate consequences for our son's circumstances. The original charge was so severe that it would have negatively impacted his life for many years potentially closing doors on internships, jobs, and other opportunities.
    Thanks to Jasen our son's life is back on track for a bright future. We highly recommend Jasen!

    After being pulled over for speeding, our college student (UCSB) was arrested for a possible DUI and possession charge. This was a distressing experience for our daughter and the rest of the family. The dark cloud of the case lingered for six months and she has relocated out of state. Jasen was able to handle the entire matter on her behalf, she never had to make a court appearance. His experience really showed AND he kept us all calm and cool. Much to our relief, the ideal outcome was achieved...all charges were dropped except the speeding ticket (exactly as he predicted!)
    Thank you very much, Jasen.

    I can't express the gratitude we have for Jasen Bodie Nielsen. When my son was arrested for DUI I had no idea where to turn. Since we are not residents of California and actually live in Pennsylvania, I knew we were in for the granddaddy of all nightmare's. I was barraged with lawyer solicitations for out of state DUI help. How do you trust someone you never met and have no reference for such an important concern? They were all much more expensive but sincerely, that is not what made me choose Attorney Nielson. There was a certain simplicity/honesty in a letter describing how he could help. Well he did it, he took care of our legal nightmare with no (I mean none) problems or messy hassles, surcharges or trips to California for me or my son.

    My son is back at college for his senior year and will continue on to medical school or Neuro-Pharmacology (say that just 1 time fast!) research. I know that he has learned from this experience and will be a tremendous asset to society. He also learned there are still people like Jasen B. Nielsen, Esq who can be trusted to do what they promise even from a distance of 2,500 miles away.
