One evening in late February, I found myself arrested and charge with a DUI. The circumstances of my case were unusual. While I was discussing my unfortunate encounter with a friend, he quickly recommended Nancy King. From the very beginning, Nancy demonstrated the professional qualities and dedication to her clients that is necessary to win criminal cases in court. Nancy's team went right to work tracking down and interviewing all available witnesses. Although a plea agreement couldn't be negotiated, Nancy felt confident in our defense and we took the case to trial. Shortly before the trial began, the DA decided to charge me with misdemeanor battery in addition to the DUI for an encounter I had with someone immediately before my arrest. The prosecutor had planned on calling roughly 5 witnesses. After Nancy had the chance to cross-examine only one of these witnesses, the DA had no problem agreeing to a plea. The court found me guilty of drunk in public. We all have lapses in judgement and moments where our character is unbecoming. In times like these you can count on Nancy King to defend your name and get you past these obstacles with as little turbulence as possible.
Nancy was referred to me by another attorney and it was a life changing decision,I was in sacramento county jail and also had a warrant from placer county,when nancy arrived she seemed to take my legal problems and carry them herself she made me feel at ease and handled all the proper appearances in both counties and what could have been literaly years of my life ruined with another attorney or public defender instead ended with her getting me a probation violation and no new charge and a rehabilitation program in placer county.Thanks to Nancy its all behind me now and i would recommend her in any criminal law case
Don't stress....just call. The other guys seemed uneducated compared to Ms. King.
I am forever thankful for representation by Nancy King. I knew right away, on the phone, that she pays close attention to detail and uses critical thinking and in-depth personal experience to help you move through the obstacles and get you back on track and focused on your livelihood.
I had an extremely technical, difficult case of DUID (prescription medication). Nancy explained what I was up against and what my options might be. She worked on my charges diligently and did not pass the responsibility on to anyone! She took my case personally and would have been eager to go to trial. Thatâ€™s when you get the confidence to move on. She encouraged me to consider the outcomes of each scenario and spent the time to uncover every stone, to my advantage. She got the charges lowered twice and I got back to work!
Nancy King is someone you want on your side. - RJ
Nancy King has restored my faith in the legal profession. She was very successfully navigating thru a 15-year-old criminal case against me. With the recourses of her office she was able to get my charges completely dismissed.
Nancy has a very pleasant and un-arming disposition I truly believe this is a rare quality that is hard to fine in the legal profession today. She always keep me informed of the progress of my case and always returned my calls promptly.
Upon being charged with Domestic Violence, I was told by family to contact Nancy King. When I called Nancy's office, I was immediately put through directly to her. We set up an appointment, and I met with Nancy only an hour after getting off the phone. Upon arrival at Nancy's office, I had no waiting time. I immediately met with her and we went over my case. She was very understanding, and gave me a step-by-step explanation of the process ahead. She told me she would work to have the charges dismissed, and if not dismissed she would work to have them lowered to misdemeanors. Luckily, Nancy was able to have my charges dismissed. I greatly appreciate your work Nancy! Thanks again!
Nancy and her staff were very proffessional, responsive, and kept me very informed, even with all of my questions that I kept bugging them with. I would highly recommend Nancy King to anyone. Unlike the multiple other attorneys that I contacted and received fancy fliers from, Nancy Personally returned my original call and all calls and emails afterwards. She represented me, herself, and didn't pass the responsibilty off to another representative of her firm like others, and in turn, my case outcome could not have been better. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to Nancy and her staff. Sincerely, Mike Somers
Nancy King handled my DUI case brilliantly. She was very willing to work with us and was willing to take it all the way to a court trial if I was unsatisfied with the resulting penalties, which I wasn't because I truly believe she got me the best that was possible in my situation. She kept me completely informed on what was going on and answered all questions patiently and was very well-informed. I would give my highest recommendation for Nancy King.
