About a year ago, I ran into a series of unfortunate events with the law, due to some bad decisions on my part. I was charged with two drunk in publics. With my first one I just pled guilty because I didn't really know any better. When I got the second one I knew that I needed professional help! That's when I was fortunate enough to be referred to Jasen Nielsen! He is hands down the most respectable, trustworthy, driven and helpful lawyer I have ever come into contact with! He also is very timely with his work and always responds right away to emails and calls. He was able to get the second drunk in public dismissed for me! He is currently working to get my first one expunged! I am so greatful to have found such an amazing lawyer and I would refer him to anyone and everyone!

I truly believe words cannot describe how Jasen has impacted our lives. From my first conversation with Jasen I felt comfortable and knew he was the right attorney to take over my husbands case. Jasen has always been straight forward and did not give us false hopes. We have worked with a previous attorney who got paid big bucks and gave us false hopes and a negative outcome and that attorney comes nowhere near as professional as Jasen. Jasen has been a very hardworking attorney who is dedicated to his work. He is honest and trustworthy and always available to talk when you need him (he answers his own calls). He appeared in court several times for my husbands case and each time he put all his effort into getting the outcome he wants for us. We felt comfortable with Jasen from day one and had faith in him. May God bless him and his family and his future. From the bottom of our hearts,
Thank You Jasen.

Jasen Nielsen was a fantastic lawyer. I really appreciated the time he took to make sure I was comfortable with the process and everything that was going on. I received a ticket for public intoxication and Jasen was able to get the charge reduced to disturbing the peace and time served. He was always available if I had a question, even late at night, which was convenient for me as I have long work hours. I would definitely recommend his services to a friend although I hope I don't have to!

Jasen was able to get a favorable outcome for me with my case. Without Jasen's representation, I would have been lost trying to navigate our legal system. Jasen is responsive and kept me informed throughout the process. What sets Jasen apart from other attorneys is his customer service, reliability and his professionalism. I appreciate Jasen's service and will recommend Jasen to my family and friends.

Jason Nielsen is an amazing attorney! He helped me every step of the way with no doubt in my mind. I never had to step foot in a court room and was still represented like i was. He made a very difficult time in my life much more easy as well as putting my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone i know in need of his service.

I hired Jasen because he seemed like a trustworthy and reliable attorney..I was right! The first meeting with him he discussed my options and was really understanding about my situation. I got two drunk in public arrests within a 30 day period so I was extremely nervous about getting a clean record. He took every step he could to ensure me that this would be taken care of. I ended up getting both cases dismissed and can now breathe again! I would definitely recommend Jasen for any of your DUI or related cases because he's very knowledgeable and will help you the best that he can. I'm also a college student so I don't have a huge budget and he was able to cater to my financial situation. Thank you!!

In January of this year I was pulled over for a DUI and found Jason through the website called Avvo. Since I have had unpleasant experiences with attorneys in the past I was skeptical about hiring one for my case. With that being said, as soon as I spoke with Jason I was immediately relieved to find that I had found a reliable and honest attorney. Jason has gone above and beyond all expectation as well as proven himself the best at what he does. Never once did I struggle to get a hold of him when I had a question or needed guidance with my case. Even when Jason was on a family vacation it only took him minutes to get back to me with what I needed. Not only was he easy to communicate with, he attended all my court dates for me due to my overbearing work schedule. Even after I moved to Florida he proceeded to attend my court hearings and still managed to get my sentencing drastically reduced, resulting in just taking AA classes in Florida. Jason has managed to not only successfully lower my sentencing, stay reliable and be there whenever I needed him but he did this all while I was 3,000 miles away. I would recommend Jason to anyone who is seeking a trustworthy, reliable and ambitious attorney who always goes above and beyond any expectation at an affordable price.

Early in the year I had decided to head up North to visit a friend 12 hours away to get away from the City & enjoy a peaceful green week vacation. Long story short, I had a 3 beers 4 hours before getting on the road. 7 hours later was pulled over for no tags (new vehicle) was incarcerated for a DUI. After speaking to several attorney's, Jasen Nielsen was the only one that stood out. He said everything I wanted to hear and was very descriptive on the game plan, if I were to hire him; I was sold & hired Jasen. Through out this whole ordeal he advised me on what to do even before our first court day. Jasen reduced my sentence to a Wet Reckless with a D.A. claiming a strict "No Wet Reckless policy." He has given me a full length instructions on court dates, court fulfillments & has been responsive to every phone call, email, even cell phone text. He is willing to answer questions outside of the normal working hours. My case is almost over & he is still answering everyone of my small questions & is following through. I felt I needed to spread the word on a rare honest trustworthy Lawyer in hopes it will help someone find a lawyer fast and not deal with all the extra stress. I am content with his services and recommend him to anyone in a time of need.

Unfortunately, I was charged with a DUI, Jasen Nielsen helped me get past it. With his extreme experience with the charges as well as his political ties in the courts, I was able to get a decent sentence, avoiding some of the harsher penalties of the conviction. I had a specific situation that would not allow me to accomplish the court's demands on my conviction. Jasen helped the persuade the court to convenience me. After the case was over, the incident wasn't. I kept receiving bills and other documentation requiring me to do more work and pay more money for a misdemeanor that I had already paid my dues for. Jasen helped provide further information on the matter and did not charge for his services, even though he sent multiple emails, documents, information, and helpful material that would in the end help better the situation as well as allow me the best information for that matter. Also, Jasen was very honest and upfront with this terms, wages, and information in the matter. He would tell me if it was worth hiring him or not for specific situations and the truth about fighting such a case. He also helped me to get my DUI expunged within less than 2 years. With his immense help and expertise, it was almost as if my conviction never happened. To this day I am extremely thankful I hired him to represent me in court and had him on my side whenever I wanted to seek any kind of counseling. I do thoroughly recommend Jasen.

We sometimes take services for granted. We think 'That person is just doing his job' or 'I have paid that person'. We expect no less than what is expected and we don't think much more about it if more was given. We don't stop and think about it and appreciate it.
Jasen did his job for me and he made it pleasant. Dealing with a DUI is hard, one shouldn't have to suffer more than what the law requires. I didn't feel like a filthy criminal, he treated me like a normal human being who made a mistake. Jasen was flexible, met with me when it was convenient for me, made things easier for me, and didn't leave till he was sure things were taken care of. Plus, he's a pretty nice guy. It felt like a friend was helping me, not some business-minded lawyer in a cold, sterile, corporate office.
Thanks to Jasen, my experience was nice, as nice as a DUI could be. He did his job and more, and I appreciate it.

I had a lot of concerns & anxiety before meeting Jasen. Much of this anxiety was recalling my experience with my previous attorney who was cold, abrupt, calculating & seemed too busy with
"what-ever" to even return my calls. He never explained what was going to happen with my case.
My anxiety was very,very high. I was nervous to meet Jasen, as my only experience was with my
former attorney was an emotional TRAUMA ! i was even suspicious when I first met Jasen, but quickly realized that he was genuinely interested in my case & I felt I had made a wise decision.
Jasen explained the many consequences that I would face & I felt I had a real COACH. He never
promised anything that he could not deliver. He is truly a gentleman & a scholar. In spite of his busy practice , I felt I had his undivided attention. I am one of his very satisfied clients & will recommend him highly to all.

I got my first DUI a few months ago and was bombarded with mail & information from a plethora of lawyers in the Ventura County area, so everything was extremely overwhelming & I didn't know where to start. After sorting through the junk & reading reviews online, I decided to hire Jasen as my DUI lawyer to help me through the process. Greatest decision ever.
I was worried about my lawyer scamming me for my money & leaving me in the dust but I can assure you that Jasen is a godsend. He charges a reasonable flat rate for his services and from the get-go he was professional, informative and accessible. He met with me right away to discuss the entire ordeal, from what to expect within the next few months to how much fines to pay, etc. He answered all my questions and whenever I came up with more he was always willing to answer them to the best of his ability via phone call or email.
It saddens me when I hear about other people who have paid lawyers for their help and in return get left in the dark once that check goes through. The money you pay for Jasen is extremely well spent & I'm glad I didn't trust anyone else! You can tell from the initial meeting that he is extremely knowledgeable and qualified in the DUI / DWI area specifically, which is one of the main reasons why I retained him. I didn't want my lawyer to be handling too many other "civil" cases and not give my case the attention it deserved. He was always prompt in his replies - often responding within the same day, if not hours, afterward. That was huge deal for me - I have very little patience so I'm glad he was always there to help me.
I've already been convicted & have taken the necessary steps to getting through this whole thing (DUI school, paying fines, etc.) and Jasen still sends me an email every now and then checking in to see if I have any more questions and to make sure I'm doing everything I should be.
If this is your first DUI, do yourself a favor and give Jasen a call or shoot him an email - you won't be disappointed. He's there throughout the entire process - beginning, middle, end and even afterward - so you don't have to (and shouldn't) handle this alone!

Jasen has helped me, by speaking on my behalf to California Judges through California's legal system. He has also pleaded with representatives of California's legal system on my behalf
Should you find a yourself in a situation where you need this representation, I would strongly suggest you have a brief chat with Jasen before you select your Attorney.
Posted by Brian, a DUI client, Flag
Jasen has been great from start to finish regarding my case. He explained everything in regards to what I can expect in a simple, clear manner, kept me posted on the results of each court appearance and gave me frequent status updates. He took care of all the paperwork, appearances and negotiations for me. He's an excellent lawyer and I highly recommend him.
Posted by Damon, a DUI client, Flag
I had a great experience having Jasen as my Lawyer. He was engaging, empathetic to my situation, and provided great counsel in a time that was very difficult. For me, the real value was knowing that I had someone with experience and intelligence helping me to make good practical decisions with unfamiliar topics so that I could remain focused on my life.
Posted by Nathan, a DUI client, Flag
Jason Nielsen is the lawyer you want if you get a DUI. I called every lawyer I get mailers from and Jasen stood out to me with his professionalism in answering all my questions and concerns. He was affordable and on top of it. He always called me and kept me notified every step of the way. He was able to get me a wet reckless with my licensed not suspended at all. I was debating whether to spend the money on Jason or to get a public defender, but after speaking with Jason and the outcome of my case I cannot stress enough how beneficial it will be for you if you hire Jason Nielsen.

For ten years my daughter had been plagued by an old misdemeanor and non-violent felony that kept her from getting the jobs for which she had been applying. Since I know Jason from a previous business relationship, and I was always impressed by his honesty and work ethic, I thought that he would be best suited to help clear these blemishes from my daughter's legal record. Jason immediately got to work on the issues, researched my daughter's record and determined that after such a long period of time he could get these items expunged and dismissed. He kept in constant contact with myself and my daughter through the entire process and when it was all done he helped counsel my daughter on what the legal rulings meant and how to move forward in her job searches.. Her life has been turned around and I credit Janson's diligent work for new opportunities

Jasen is not only a good lawyer but a GREAT human being. He constantly went above and beyond what he was hired for. He always spends as much time with you as you need and I never felt rushed with him like I have with other lawyers. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Jasen Nielsen!!!
Posted by Andy, a DUI client, Flag
I was referred to Jasen by a good friend. From the moment I walked into Jasen's office I knew I was in good hands. He kept me fully informed throughout the entire case and he responded quickly to any questions I had even on his days off. Jasen is very knowledgeable when dealing with the court system, DA's and judges. It was nice to have an attorney that genuinely cared about the outcome of my case. Something that is hard to find.
Jasen was able to get me the best possible outcome in my case and I will always be forever thankful to him.
If you find yourself in a DUI situation then I highly recommend to call Jasen and let him handle it for you.

Jasen was great to work with and extremely helpful. He was very responsive and knowledgeable about the nuances of my case. Jasen was able to work with the court to get me the best possible outcome there was. I am very appreciative to have him on my side. I would strongly suggest consulting with Jasen for any and all legal issues that might present themselves.

Researching a DUI lawyer can be daunting, and there are a lot of charlatans out there at every level of this process. Jasen's integrity, honesty, and sensitivity to the unique aspects of my case made me feel like I was in very good hands and resulted in charges being reduced to a wet reckless for my marginal case. He was communicative, forthright, and thorough in informing me of how to best take care of myself in the face of this disaster.

I was arrested for DUI at a rather quick rate of pace in Santa Barbara county. After a long night I walked out with no idea what to do, and totally scared out of my mind. A friend recommended I contact Jasen and I did, which turned out to be an excellent decision. I felt i was in the right place straight away. His office was relaxed and very professional, and after a couple meetings I felt a lot better having someone who was realistic but on my side to help me make things right. He explained things in a way I understood, treated me like a fellow human, and always kept me informed on the upcoming proceedings. He was able to get me the best possible deal with the court system, and I'm am very grateful for that. I would recommend this guy to anyone for his intelligence regarding legal proceedings and his overall willingness to go above and beyond for his clients. It's is obviously not all about a a paycheck for Jasen. I hope I never have to consult him for help again, but if i did i would be contacting him straight away. I will miss our meetings as he is a genuine good person helping people rectify their mistakes. Uncle Sam can be rather unforgiving and I'm so glad I had someone to help me through this. If your trying to make things right, and get out of the system ASAP, call Jasen Straight away. :)

Jasen represented me in my DUI case and later, handled the expungement for me. I had never been to court before, and was nervous. He fully explained everything I should expect before my court date, and was in constant contact with me about everything. He met with me at the courthouse before my appearance, and talked to me to calm me down a bit and make sure I was ready for everything. I was originally facing a months jail time due to the circumstances of my case. He was able to talk to the DA and get my case down to a fine, and driving classes, and kept me out of jail and allowed me to keep my job. About a year and a half later, I contacted him about getting my case expunged from my record. I was no longer living in the area, but that wasn't a problem for him. He handled every part of the early termination and expungement process for me incredibly quickly, all while keeping me constantly informed of what to expect, and what he was going to do for me. I have now had the probation terminated and charge expunged less than 2 years after the fact, and I could have done none of it without him. Jasen showed a genuine care for not just my case, but for how I was doing as a person as well. I would recommend Jasen without hesitation to anyone in need of legal assistance. He helped me through a very trying time in my life, and I will be forever thankful to him for that.

My Son was out having a good time with his friends when he had to answer the call of nature. This resulted in him getting a citation, which seemed a little heavy handed for a student with his whole career and life before him. As he was ashamed of his actions, he did not let me know of this until the court date was very close.
This meant I had to move quickly to find out what our options were, and I began to call lawyers offices to speak with someone. I left messages with receptionists and voice mails and was not called back as I was promised. I did manage to speak to two lawyers but neither of them offered any real plan or ideas that would offer some hope of a good result.
Then I called Jasen who answered my call personally and immediately. He allowed me to relate our position without interrupting, and asked specific questions to get the full picture. Right away he put my mind at ease on a couple of my concerns and he told me what his plan of action would be. I knew right away that Jason was a person who enjoyed his work, and was well versed in his profession.
Every time I called Jasen he was there, this may not always be the case , but it was for me.
Jasen prevented me from rushing my son into court, and making a big mistake. He was able to get us the best possible result, and I am very grateful that my son's good record is preserved.
I highly recommend Jason, who makes his profession look good, and is genuinely interested in helping, and treats you as an equal.

Recently, I had just got a hit and run and a DUI about a half block away from my house. I decided to use Jasen as my lawyer for this terrible incident; I couldnt have picked a better guy for the job. Jasen was always there to talk and answer all of my questions and make me feel more at ease about the whole overall situation. He would go to court for me so I didnt have to feel the nervousness of sitting in that room and waiting. After the court papers had been given to him, he gave me all the condensed information typed up in a step by step process on what I would have to do next. I would Highly recommend Jasen to anyone put in a bad situation such as mine. He was able to get the hit and run dismissed and no jail time and just a few alcohol classes. Without him, I would have been completely stressed the entire time and I'm sure I would've misinterpreted quite a bit of the paperwork and wouldn't have had the hit and run dropped. I'm forever thankful to have had someone like Jasen watching my back and helping me through this terrible time.

I got my DUI in 2009, being underaged I wanted to make sure I did everything I could to better my case. My parents decided to hire Jasen to handle my case. It was a great decision, he was very intelligent, helpful, honest, and easy to approach with questions. He always responded to my questions promptly and notified me with any updates on my case. Jasen was able to help me in an outstanding way. The judge didn't notice that I was underage so I didn't get any alcohol terms. I then hired Jasen a second time when I found out I couldn't get into nursing school while being on probation. At this point I had only been on probation for one year. I had payed all the fines, gotten my license back and had gotten into a nursing program. However it was up to Jasen to allow me to continue on my career path. Jasen set up a court date to bring my case to the judge, I attended the court date with him and he was very honest and caring throughout the day. He ended up being able to get me off probation after 13 months. He saved my career and I am forever greatfull for all his help, knowledge and dedication on my case. I would recommend him to anyone that needs a laywer.

When I got arrested for a DUI with a high rate of speed in Ventura county I thought I was screwed. The potential penalty that I was facing was 60 days in Ventura County Jail on top of all the other fines and fees (even though it was my first DUI). I ended up hiring Jasen Nielsen to help me out and I am very glad that I did. He didn't make a bunch of false promises to me saying that we could get me off completely free and clear, but he told me that we would be able to help me take accountability for what had happened in the best possible way. He did exactly that! Every step of the way Mr. Nielsen kept me informed about what was going on with my case and what needed to be done. He was always available if I had any questions and he made my whole situation SO MUCH EASIER to handle. I was able to get my restricted license for work very quickly and Mr. Nielsen attended all of my court dates for me, saving me time, gas money and headaches. At the end of the day, they somehow missed charging me with anything related to the excessive speed and I was charged with a first time DUI! On top of that, Jasen was able to get me Credit Time Served for the 48 hours that I was supposed to serve resulting in NO JAIL TIME for me!! I was blown away by how well Attorney Jasen Nielsen handled everything and would recommend him 100% to anyone else that finds themselves in the unfortunate position of having to deal with a DUI.

I had the misfortune of receiving a DUI in Ventura County in 2008. Prior to this, I had never had an encounter with the law or legal system with no prior record, so i was a fish out of water when it came to knowing the proper steps to take in order to tackle this overwhelming charge that I was now facing. Initially, I was referred to an attorney with the promise that I would be in good hands and well represented. Thousands of dollars later, I was disappointed to learn that the attorney I had originally hired was nothing more than a money hungry, scum bag who could care less about me or my case.
I decided to fire that attorney, which ultimately ended up being the best decision I ever made because it led me to Jasen Nielsen. Admittedly, I was a bit trepidatious about hiring someone new and somewhat reluctant to spend the money because of the horrible experience I just had with my previous attorney. I had a lot of anxiety before meeting Jasen, but as soon as I stepped foot in his office, my fears were almost immediately diminished. Jasen made me feel comfortable, at ease, relaxed, and confident, all while maintaining absolute professionalism. He never promised me anything he could not deliver, and that spoke volumes to me in terms of his character. Jasen is not one to sell or push his services onto you, as I learned, his services speak for itself.
Jasen is incredibly knowledgable, dependable, honest, and trustworthy. He cares about his clients, and he fights hard for them. Never once in the three years he represented me did I feel like I didn't know what was happening with my case. He attended every court appearance, followed by an immediate phone call, answered all of my questions and or concerns (and there were a lot of them), constantly called to make sure I always knew where I stood in terms of my case and to make sure I was following through on what I needed to fulfill on my end. He walked me through the terms of my probation, and even accompanied me to the probation office to make sure my forms were arriving on time and to ensure I was fully aware of every detail involving my probation.
Jasen went above and beyond for me, and renewed my faith that there are great attorneys out there who do have your best interest at heart. There were times that I slipped up during my time on probation, and Jasen was not only there to talk me through it, he was physically in court the next day, if it was required, sometimes with less than 24 hour notice, to prevent the court from violating me. While I know he had many more cases he was handling, Jasen always made me feel that I was the only case he was representing because I always had his undivided attention.
Since 2008, when someone I know asks me if it is worth spending the money to hire an attorney, I always reply, "only if you hire Jasen Nielsen." Of course you need an attorney for a serious charge like a DUI, but Jasen fights extremely hard for his clients to ensure they receive the most appropriate sentence possible.
Even after my case was over, he continued to call to make sure I was doing okay and nothing new had come up, and he always reassured me that if I had any questions or needed anything, he was just a phone call away. I only wish I would have hired him from the beginning, it would have saved me a lot of money and a tremendous amount of stress. You will not regret a dime you spend on his services, and you will be thankful everyday that you have him on your side and are not doing this alone.

what i asked him for was an admitted "long shot" as defined by the both of us... he gave me a "great deal" to appear on my behalf as he was aware of my "expensive legal let down" with another attorney and handled my case PRECISELY as he said he would. ultimately with the exact result he forecast...
this is the EXACT e mail i sent him... (copy/paste)
Just wanted to say, "thank you, again" for your offer and your time on my case.
as I seem to have plenty of time to sit and think lately, I just wanted you to know how very important follow through and even loyalty (especially in the "friend" realm) have become to me. Quite simply, to get "the call" from you "when you said i would" meant a lot. Of course I dreamed of a different outcome as well, but wanted to reassure you that I am most pleased with my interaction with you as you were a breath of fresh legal air that I really haven't seen a lot of despite the $$ thrown around.
Please take comfort in the fact that I will, on that alone do whatever I can to push business in your direction and thank you again for your valuable time.
Lastly if a minute order is available I'd be interested in a copy (not a must), but you knowing that I hold our transaction in high regard is the main point of my letter to you today.
Have a kick legal ass day sir,

I hired Jasen Nielsen for my DUI case in Ventura County and he was incredibly responsive from day one. He spent almost 2 hours during our first meeting talking me through the entire process and listening to my concerns. In the following weeks I contacted his office frequently with questions about my case and he consistently returned my calls, spending as much time as was necessary to make sure I was fully informed. He seemed very knowledgeable and had plenty of experience dealing with similar cases.

He saved me from getting an M.I.P (which carries a $500 dollar fine and a year suspension of your license) and got it lowered to just a payment fine of a $100 and got to keep my license. I was very impressed and it saved me a lot of stress.

I made the worst decision of my life the night I got my DUI, but I made a great decision when I hired Jasen Nielsen as my attorney. Jasen won a better outcome for me than I anticipated. He was especially helpful by being able to file my court papers and represent me in Santa Barbara County, 300 miles from my home.
After reviewing my case and considering the options, Jasen let me know the best and worst scenarios, provided advise as to what I could do to benefit my situation, and then went to bat for me. Granted, I had a blood alcohol level over 0.20 and wasn't likely to be let off the DUI charge, but his counsel and representation eliminated the threat of additional jail time, community service, house arrest and extraordinary fines. I would not have been able to accomplish the swift and beneficial completion of my case without his efforts. I also look forward to maintaining contact with him to expunge my record.
I found Jasen to be easy to talk with and never felt like an outlaw or cast-off, my confidentiality was maintained, and he took caution to postpone a hearing to my benefit when recognized that the DA in court had a less than favorable record against DUI offenders.
Not that I ever want to be in the position again to need an attorney following a DUI, but I would highly recommend Jasen as an effective advocate for your rights

Jasen Nielsen represented me in a DMV hearing in Ventura County CA regarding a DUI charge. I have been told that my case is 99% more complicated than most DUI cases. Jasen Nielsen's strategies and extensive research resulted in the DMV concluding that I will not lose my driver's license and that I was not lawfully arrested. I will always be grateful to Jasen Nielsen and am positive that he was the right choice of the many attorneys practicing DUI law in the Ventura County area.

When you get a DUI, or commit a crime. Take it seriously. Do research. Do not trust your life, license or anything else you have on the line in the hands of someone you found on the internet or who sent you a letter. Most lawyers depend on quantity to make their money, not quality. Thats what I felt I lost in this case. Quality. I felt like another, sign here, send here, here is your sentence. Find someone who will pay alot of time and attention into your case and make sure they are treating your life as if it was their own. This lawyer tol me my $2,000 I paid him was not al ot of money. As rude as that was. I now realize I should have paid a lot more money to have someone willing to FIGHT for me. Not just accept what was given. I was very ready to accept punishment for what I did, but I feel I was misrepresented in another part of my case. Take my advice. Make sure you hire someone willing to go out of the box and go the EXTRA mile. Even when your court appearences are over. Its your life in their hands.

Jasen really knows what hes doing and keeps his clients informed every step of the way.
Dont be a victim to the careless firms where you're "just another client" and they take your money and plea guilty for you..

I highly recommend Mr. Neilsen to those in need of his professional services. He has helped me beyond my expectations and was able to get me an outstanding deal with many of my charges being dropped. He helped me get my potential DUI case down to a dry reckless, something I did not even imagine being the outcome. Overall, Mr. Nielsen was incredibly reassuring, extremely professional, and a pleasure to have done business with.

I used to Mr. Nielsen to help me resolve an issue I had and thought my world was going to come to an end. Luckily I was refered to him and a huge weight was lifted off of my shoulders. He's a fantastic attorney and I've actually already sent him two friends to represent. They've thanked me since he's given them a ton of confidence that "everything will be alright".

Jasen presented me with all of the potential options of my case (best to worst case scenerio) In the end he attained the best case scenerio (short of a dismissal)

Jasen handled my case with complete confidence and utmost respect which resulted in a total dismissal of charges. Even the DMV dropped all charges after Jasens testimony and expertise.
