    Couldn't ask for better service

    Bill Makler helped me out of a stressful predicament. I got charged with disorderly conduct with alcohol in isla vista and I am under 21 years old so it resulted in my license being suspended. I then missed court for that charge resulting in a warrant for my arrest. Within 3 days of calling Mr .Makler my arrest warrant was recalled and my driving license reinstated. I then proceeded to miss multiple deadlines for my court requirements but Mr. Makler was able to take care of everything and still get me the same deal even when I didn't contact him and let him know what was going on till the last minute. I ended up getting to keep my license and not have anything stay on my record. I couldn't possibly ask for better service; my phone calls and emails were always answered, he was always reassuring that everything would be okay, and it was because of him.

    Goes Above and Beyond

    Mr. Makler helped me with a minor criminal offense two years ago. He laid out my options and told me what he could do. Not only did he follow through with getting my charge dismissed, but he did so while communicating well and answering all of my questions in a prompt manner. He remained persistent in getting the job done. Now, two years later, Mr. Makler is still answering questions I have regarding the incident - even late at night! You cannot go wrong with this lawyer.

    Best lawyer

    He's very easy going and does his job perfectly. He got me reduced from a 2nd offense DUI to a wet reckless with reasonable fines and waived a suspended license for a smooth and manageable recovery to such a stressful situation! His costs are completely reasonable as opposed to other lawyers in the Santa Barbara area. He will forever be my lawyer!

    2 misdemeanors reduced to 0

    I approached Bill Makler to speak with him about representing my son on 2 misdemeanor charges. I wasn't certain he would be interested in the case since many attorneys of Mr. Makler's caliber do not take on minor cases. However, he understood that the charges were major to my son and accepted the case. In large part due to Mr. Makler's reputation for honesty and integrity in the Santa Barbara legal community, he was able to get the 2 misdemeanor charges reduced to 0. It doesn't get any better than that. Our family is most grateful for his representation.

    Bill saved my career!

    Bill saved me more than once! I've had multiple accusations including drunk in public, vandalism, possession, felony assault, etc. Bill kept me informed and advised me the entire process. The best lawyer in Santa Barbara! I went from the end of my career to managing the team in my office! I can only say he is more than recommended; you are making a terrible decision if you put anyone else on your team.

    Awesome DUI lawyer

    Bill is great! I have had 2 other friends use him also. He is very helpful, kind, and knowledgeable. He negotiated some great aspects of my my case and I would have been absolutely lost without him. I plan to retain him again for handling expungement. I highly recommend using Bill!

    Makler: Exceptional Lawyer

    William Makler was absolutely exceptional in helping me fight a robbery felony. I was able to stay in school while dealing with such a difficult thing as this because Makler was so helpful. At every step along the way he knew what had to be done and kept me informed on absolutely everything related to the case. In addition, when meeting with Makler he was exceptionally nice and understanding to every question or problem I seemed to face. I recommend William Makler to everyone who is looking for an amazing lawyer!

    A gift from above! Best Attorney EVER!

    Mr. Makler came highly recommend by an attorney in Santa Maria. No question about it, he was sent to us as a gift from above. Hands down the BEST attorney ever! My son’s life was in his hands facing 2 felonies and Mr. Makler did not disappoint. Both were dropped before it even reached trail. Mr. Maker was brilliant in his research as well as his words in the court room! We are forever thankful for him!

    Best attorney in Santa Barbara

    I highly recommend William Makler since I'm an international student and the English is not my first language. William is knowledgeable and patient. We I got the case because my boyfriend and I had some argument and I was arrested by the police that is very serious to me. I'm an international student and if I got some bad charges, I would probably get deportation. I'm so sacred during this month. I find William at this website and we met just two days before the court date. He helped me to call the court and get information about my charge that will on Monday that really helpful. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND William Makler!
