I contacted Nors for a first offense DUI. I had no idea what to do or expect. He was able to walk me through the steps and help me understand the strategy for my defense. He was able to get my DUI school reduced, # of days of SAP reduced and transferred closer to where I live, and reduce the time I would have to be without a license. It was well worth the money and I would definitely recommend him.
I was arrested for a DUI with a BAC of .14% without accident or injury. This was my first DUI. The tricky part is that I was moving out of the state a few weeks after I was pulled over, which really complicated everything I was going to have to do in order to get my license back. I contacted Nors, who was so personable and understanding. I could tell right away that he genuinely wanted to help me, and was not solely interested in making money off of my desperation for help. He gave me advice and offered solutions that I could have pursued without hiring a lawyer at all, but I still decided to go ahead and work with him. It was the best decision I could have made. He was able to minimize my fines, with no jail time or community service, and most importantly was able to allow me to complete my DUI class online so that I could continue with my move and be eligible to get an out of state license after I served my 6 month suspension. Nors is great and will work hard for all his clients, with a genuine interest in helping people above all. Thank you Nors!
Nors managed to help me have my 1st time DUI charge dropped to reckless driving with only 6 weeks of traffic school. Then for the dmv side I got to keep my license without any further penalties. Overall I would say it is a very good result.
My bac was .08 on the dot. Blood retest result came back after I entered the plea .07. But still fighting in court would have been tough due to other details. So the plea for wet reckless was I think a good deal though deeply wished it would have been a dismissal because of the .07.
For the dmv part I did pay extra to have a toxicologist testify in the dmv hearing. And, it was completely worth it. An extraordinary result I got to keep my license without any penalties except the 2 points on my record for wet reckless.
Overall Nors helped me out a whole lot. He is very professional and personable. Highly recommended.
Nors is a great lawyer! I got myself into an unfortunate position and needed to find a lawyer to represent me for a second DUI case. I called around and Nors was able to calm some of my anxieties down the first time I spoke with him. We got right to the point and I knew he was going to be the one who I wanted to represent me. He kept me informed with everything going on and anytime I had any questions, he wouldn't hesitate on making sure I understood everything I needed to know. He's very professional and you can tell how much passion he has for his job. He always works hard on trying to get the best outcome for his clients. He specializes in DUI cases so he's very knowledgeable in what he does. If you're ever in trouble, hire Nors!
After speaking with several DUI lawyers in the San Francisco Bay Area, I finally spoke with one that I felt good about, Attorney Nors Dvidson. Nors quoted me fairly, when other attorneys asked for outrageous down payments. Nors listened to my case and spoke to me as an equal, when other attorneys seemed to have selective hearing and spoke to me as another case number. Most importantly, Nors Davidson gave me hope on my strenuous case, when others seemed to toss in the gloves too soon. Mr. Davidson put up a skillful fight and saved me a great deal of time and money. With a successful outcome, I highly recommend this lawyer. My life is not consumed by this DUI, because I had Attorney Nors Davidson by my side.
I want to give the highest accolades to Nors Davidson as an attorney. He is a highly intelligent lawyer, a specialist in the field of DUIs, understands the potential outcomes regarding your particular case, and has developed personal relationships within the System. He was readily available and his office staff always promptly responded to my inquiries and requests.
If you would like to know particulars of my case, I would be happy to share them as my arrest record is already public. I work within a professional field that reviews indiscretions as DUIs and it could be a potential cause for loss of professional licenses. Too bad other offenders such as those refusing to pay child support are not outed in public, but I digress...I obsessively read reviews on lawyers and potential ramifications of a DUI after being arrested. I was terrified that I would lose my license which was necessary to support myself and children and would make my life very difficult to shuttle children to school as well as get to and from work. I was also floored by the consequences of a mandatory installation of an Interlock Ignition device in Alameda County, the monthly costs to maintain that, the cost of DUI school, the fees associated with increased insurance and SR-22, as well as the fine for a DUI.
The specifics of my case are that I was pulled over for speeding and had PAS of .11 and .14. I officially tested at .09, through a blood test. I have no more public commentary on the whole financial ordeal and Systematic treatment of a DUI except to say you need to be represented by an intelligent and skilled attorney. Nors managed to reduce my charges to a Misdemeanor Wet and Reckless. I have 2 years Probation, 6 weeks of DUI school, and a $1,000 fine. I will not be losing my license with the DMV as that is a separate charge.
I highly recommend Nors Davidson. You either pay for intelligent representation that will save you money and time in the long-run, or expect to be gathered up with those with no legal representation and be prepared to take it.
Mr. Nors is an awesome lawyer, he made the process smooth and easy. I love his personality and intellegence. He got me the best deal i can ever asked for. I would highly recommend him to everyone.
I was devastated when I was arrested with a DUI. We immediately started looking for a lawyer and came across Nors and his many glowing reviews. I sent an email for a quote over the weekend and we talked that night regarding my case. Nors is very knowledgeable with the law and requirements for DUI. He walked me through every step of the process and made sure I truly understood. I do not think most people realize how complex, overwhelming and life changing a DUI can be and it takes a great lawyer like Nors to get your through it successfully. I would definitely recommend his services.
Nors has dealt with, and continues to deal with, a few unfortunate matters in my life. He is by far the most attentive lawyer I've dealt with and makes sure to keep me apprised of all the intricacies of my case(s).
Recently, on an expungement, Nors had to argue with a DA and a Judge for the better part of 10 minutes, which is a very long time in court time. The judge spent most of this time citing my shortcomings and truly making me feel like a degenerate, which I'm not, though I understood his standpoint. Despite the judges fervent diatribe against my person, Nors went toe to toe with him, citing numerous precedents and extolling my virtues. By the end, we looked at each other, sure that we had lost, but the judge granted the expungement, in no small part due to Nors' efforts. By the time we left the courtroom you could hear a pin drop and we were both breaking a sweat from the unexpected battle.
In a nutshell, when you fall on hard times, Nors is who you want in your corner. He is not some big-box law firm who will outsource your case to god knows where, he is a caring person who understands what you are going through. After nearly 4 years having Nors as my lawyer, I consider him a friend and someone I can truly rely upon to keep me out of jeopardy.
Recently, I had a conversation with Nors that had me I'm stitches, he was truly that candid and funny. Let's be honest, these are not the best times of our lives, needing a defense lawyer, but he always made me feel like it wasn't the worst; that's why I come back to him.
I spoke with several lawyers and Nors was the only one who gave me confidence that I had a fighting chance. In our very first call, it was clear that he understood my immigration issues and that he wasn't looking to simply settle for reduced charges. I appreciate his diligence, patience and persistence that led to a tremendous outcome - no probation, no DMV points, minimal fines and all DUI charges dismissed. Nors enjoys his job and fights for his clients.
