I needed a lawyer for a TRO hearing less than 7 days away. I spoke to 2 lawyers before David... both pushing the hard sell on me. David listened patiently, asked the right questions, and his fee was fair. We had only one meeting before the case, after which I felt markedly calmer and confident. He was very responsive and extremely knowledgeable. I didn't think lawyers like David existed. He is an honest lawyer. And yes, we won.

I must say I was extremely satisfied with how David Pullman handled my DUI case..... He was successfull in getting my DUI reduced to a wet & reckless with no license suspension...... He really puts his clients first, and very few lawyers these days I see doing so. My prior attorney handling this case just wanted me to plead to a standard DUI where the fines where much more and license suspension.....I would recomend Mr. Pullman to anyone seeking a lawyer that will actually fight for you.

I've known Mr. Pullman in a professional capacity for nearly a decade and he has always been thorough, compassionate and an excellent researcher. I'd recommend him especially to people accused of serious crimes in California. He will defend you promptly and give you honest legal advice. As a working-class woman and a person of color, there is a general attitude in my community that most lawyers cannot be trusted because they do not care about who we are. That's not true with Dave. He cares and works hard for all of his clients and I'm happy to recommend him to anyone in the Bay Area and California in general.

David Pullman is a great attorney! He really helped me out of a terrible situation where I was facing serious prison time. I got arrested for growing 276 marijuana plants. I also got caught with narcotic drugs and an unregistered firearm. I spent a few days in the Oakland jail which was hell. My first lawyer, hired by my parents, couldn't even get them to lower my bail. I fired him and hired Mr. Pullman. He immediately got the judge to let me out on my own recognizance without paying any bail at all. He was so much better than the other guy and he only charged about half as much.Â
Mr. Pullman was really awesome. He guided me through the whole process and he was always available by phone to answer my questions. The whole thing was so stressful. It really helped that he was so friendly and calm and explained everything too me. We had to go to so many court dates and the DA was threatening to send me to prison. Mr. Pullman filed a bunch of motions and he was really fighting hard at every court date to beat these charges. I could tell he really cared about what happened to me and I knew I could trust him and that made the whole thing much more bearable. Eventually, he got them to drop all the charges except for one and all I got was probation, with no jail time. I am so glad this nightmare is over. I know I made the right move when I hired Mr. Pullman and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to everyone. He rocks! - Â M.A.

This guy is no doubt the best lawyer I've dealt with by far. He seems to enjoy helping people and he doesn't charge a ton of money. I felt like he was real and I could trust him. I'm really glad I trusted him, too, because he kicked ass for me. Unlike any other lawyer I ever had, he really kept me in the loop and explained everything that was going on and this dude really knows his stuff. Also, I could easily get in touch with him whenever I wanted to, which was a relief.
I was charged with eight drug felonies and the DA was demanding prison time. Mr. Pullman really worked my case hard. In the end, I wound up doing four months on house arrest, which was a sweet deal for all the prison time I was facing. He even went back into court with me for free to get me permission to use medical marijuana while I was on probation. I hope I never need a lawyer again, but if I do, I know who to go to.
