Mr. Genis really saved me from harsher consequences when I exercised really bad judgement and got arrested on suspicion of DUI. He developed a great strategy for my defense and charges were reduced.

When I was wrongly accused of a DUI it was shear panic. This was my first ever run in with the law and a DUI would have ruined my career. After the panic and terror of what to do next, I found Daryl Genis. After contacting Daryl, he was able to put me at ease and minimize my panic; he laid out a plan and followed it step by step.
I was asked to take a breathalyzer on equipment that was not meeting state standards by operators that did not follow procedures. Daryl’s ability to find exactly the right expert witnesses and to capitalize on their testimony to debunk the prosecutions junk science and flawed assumptions ultimately was the turning point for my case. Daryl kept me informed throughout the long ordeal and helped me to prepare for and deal with challenges along the way. I owe Daryl a huge debt of gratitude for all that he did for me, Daryl truly fights for his clients and provides top notch legal representation. I have recommended Daryl to several friends and acquaintances and have no reservation continuing to do so.

I am a 19 year old, full-time college student who made the stupid and careless mistake to drive under the influence. I ended up getting pulled over for a taillight out, and received a DUI. Scared to death and ashamed my parents and I frantically started searching for lawyers in our area (Santa Barbara). My dad found Mr.Genis online, after finding numerous recommendations online from legal colleagues and reviews from former people he represented we happily chose Darryl Genis (and this was the best decision my dad has ever made). My dad who lives up in Northern California took care of most of the situation for me because I am in school full time and working 30 hours a week, but this did not affect the work of Mr. Genis and his office In staying in full contact with my dad. Although they never met face to face, they had multiple calls and long conversations about my case, and my life in general. Mr.Genis is amazing in the sense that he cares about YOU, and getting to know you, your family and your background to further assess you in court. He becomes your attorney and your friend. His office was amazing at contacting me with emails and calls after every court date, and continued to fight long and hard for my case. He’s extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of the law and arguable points in defense for his client. Further, his staff in the office are amazing. They were always very knowledgeable, helpful, and extremely nice. Being only 19 years old and having a DUI I was very very upset, until this morning I got the news that MY CASE WAS DROPPED. I can assure anyone that is looking for defense counsel that Mr. Genis is the best attorney in the state and will defend your rights and leave you feeling extremely blessed and glad that you made the right decision. I would also like to add that I learned my lesson, and I am confident that nothing like this will ever happen again in my future, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help of Mr. Genis and his office.

As a mature business man, I know not to drive if I'm impaired. But coming home from a business meeting I got stopped in a checkpoint. My BAC was borderline, but the SBPD arrested me anyway. Genis made it go away with a letter. He is still just as good as when AVVO gave him a 10 rating. He is hands down the best DUI lawyer in this town.

Judge Brian Hill testified under oath: "Genis is probably the best DUI lawyer on the central coast". When I got arrested I knew I did not want a 'go along to get along' kind of lawyer. That's why I hired Genis. I read the complaint against him and could see it was the DA who was upset with losing to him on cases like DeNunzio, and Lance. My decision paid off because 4.5 months after I hired Darryl Genis, my case was dismissed, and I got my license back. At the time I hired him, his AVVO rating was a perfect 10. He is the same great lawyer now, but because he was the victim of a State Bar 'whitch hunt' instigated by DA Dudley his rating dropped lower than lawyers who are not worthy of carrying his briefcase. He is still a '10' by any measure of his abilities and the case outcomes he effects.

Mr. Genis was referred by a coworker, he was quickly able to take my case. I didn't know what my options were until he explained that I was being shot through the grease.

Darryl has helped me before. That's why I used him again and will hopefully not have to use anymore- but Shxt happens! If it does, I will call him. I suggest you call him for all your legal issues. I am in Los Angeles and he is in Santa Barbara. Wouldn't matter if he was in Guam. Call him and he will guide you and help you. That's all you can truly ask for in a Lawyer.

I hired Mr. Genis because of his great reputation and was very pleased with the outcome. He is extremely knowledgeable and very hard working. He was very responsive and attentive to every detail of my case. On top of his expert knowledge of the law and the legal system he also shows genuine support and interest for his clients. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal help on any DUI related issue.

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!

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.
