After getting charged with a DUI, I began working with another lawyer that basically told me (after I paid him) that there was no hope in fighting the DMV because they never drop cases and the best I could hope for was a wet and reckless. My job was on the line so i went to Adam at the recommendation of another lawyer. Adam went above and beyond fighting the county, resulting in a dry and reckless, most importantly the DMV case was dropped. I was able to keep my job. I would definitely recommend him.
My experience with Adam was great. There was an emotional burden on my family and I, this sense of no way out and distress. My father had many sleepless night over my younger brothers case. We went to another county's court two times before finally getting a court date. Adam, luckily was there and gave some some thoughtful advice. He stepped in when he didn't have to and took it upon himself to help my family out. In the ensuing week my father was sleeping more and I was feeling a lot better about the whole situation. Reason I focus on emotion is because that is an area that reviews lack. His assistant John was very helpful as well, thorough and always responsive. I highly recommend Adam and his team to help you in your time of need.
If you don't hire Adam Gasner to defend you, you're making a big mistake! I actually had hired another very well known, highly respected SF DUI lawyer and ended up substituting in Adam, and thank GOD I did. My daughter had gotten a DUI in SF and was also charged with assaulting a police officer. If that wasn't bad enough, her blood count was over 2.0 which is really bad. The other attorney really did nothing at all except make a couple appearances. That's it. He advised us there was nothing more to do until the DA filed the charges and notified us of the court date. That's the last time we heard from that lawyer. My daughter got pulled over for a traffic ticket and was arrested on the spot. There was a warrant for her arrest and we knew nothing about it. Long story short, I luckily heard about Adam and replaced the other attorney right away. Adam immediately went to work for my daughter and calmed her down and assured her he would take care of her. Did he ever! Somehow, he managed to get every charge completely dismissed! No plea bargain, no reduced sentence, etc. He got her off scot-free and every charge was thrown out and dismissed. He's a miracle worker and you will NOT regret hiring him to represent you. I guarantee it! He really is the best there is!
I made a mistake and got charged with a misdemeanor in Federal Court. Adam helped me get the charge off of my record with the federal prosecutor with no mishaps. Adam was quick to respond to my e-mails or phone calls and I would highly recommend any first time offender to seek his help.
Adam is an amazing lawyer. He is very personable and professional. My case was a very long and drawn out case, but Adam always kept up with everything and I was always well informed. I really appreciated that he would take the time to fully explain his thought process/strategy and was never condescending. Even though this was a stressful time, Adam made it a great experience and took care of everything.
My son was arrested for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. Not living in the area, I faced the daunting task of hiring an attorney long distance. I am so grateful that I came across Adam. His follow up and communication was excellent in keeping me informed every step of the way.
Adam handled a difficult case to a very positive outcome. He did a great job with the DA and the judge. Besides getting the case dismissed, I am most appreciative that he treated my son with dignity and respect.
I had an unusual situation that required me to provide (within 30 days) specific documents relating to an arrest several years ago. For various reasons, the requested documents did not exist so the usual document request procedures through the Court would not have worked here. I needed an "out-of-the-box" approach to gain documentation that would satisfy the original request.
Adam responded to my initial inquiry promptly and was very responsive as he informed me with his findings. His office was able to obtain documents that satisfied the information request. While this situation sounds trivial, I know that very few attorneys would have had the creativeness and know-how to get the documents I could use to satisfy the initial information request.
Adam Gasner is legal rock star and a class act! He is a five-star criminal defense attorney and someone you want on your side when faced with serious legal consequences. I was charged with several felonies and I was tried not only in the criminal courts but also in the media given I was a public official. Notwithstanding the many challenges and obstacles he encountered fighting for my due process, Adam was confidently persistent in identifying and resolving several critical litigation issues and he worked collaboratively with the Court to ultimately expunge this matter. Trust me, Adam’s professional attitude, intense focus and dedicated commitment on my behalf made a huge positive difference in the end. Thank you Adam!
Adam Gasner was a great attorney to work with. After contacting multiple attorneys both over the phone and online, he was the first to respond back.
He was very knowledgeable attorney, and explained his plan of action and the situation honestly and simply. During my case, he was able to get an entire charge dropped, and the other simply into an infraction with a small fine.
Thanks to Mr. Gasner, I am relieved to have a clean record. I highly recommend his services to anyone seeking legal counsel on criminal law.
Finding and contracting an attorney for representation can be an extremely daunting and stressful task, especially when initially dealing with your own legal challenges. Where does one start? Fortunately, research on the internet and AVVO proved that the internet can provide a true treasure when seeking competent and compassionate legal representation. I did not expect to find an attorney who is not only highly skilled and experienced with the criminal defense process and system but is also genuinely a caring and supportive individual.
The ultimate outcome of my situation far exceeded my initial expectations and based on the actual charges at the beginning of the process, I now can continue with my life and work without any significant interruptions or with a felony on my records. Kudos to Adam Gasner, I would recommend him to anyone, anytime!
