I had gotten charged with reckless driving. Oh yes, I was guilty of an ordinary speeding infraction, but a bogus police officer saw an older man that he could take advantage of by turning a ordinary ticket into something way bigger..for him and the city of Lincoln, CA. After getting all the info and the officer's report, Mr. Rehm told me to relax and we had a winnable case. He was right. He totally took the Asst. DA and the Officer's account of things and kicked their butts with their own words..and dishonesty. The Jury was not only unanimous about acquitting me, they talked to me after court and said my lawyer really helped persuade them of my innocence. Mike Rehm saved my ass. What more can I say. He was a great lawyer, and I am thankful for choosing him. Next time you are in trouble, call Mike.
Michael Rehm was a horrible option for an attorney for my dui case. I was a first-time offender with no priors and he literally did the bare minimum at times, but displayed mostly below average effort. He did not maintain contact, was highly abrasive and hard to communicate with and never struck me as anyone who valued me as a client. I'd never met him in person and on the opportunity I did have (court date) he decided to send his less than respectable associate instead. Michael basically got me what any other offender would have gotten in this case, likely the same results I would have gotten representing myself or hiring a public defender. It was a waste of money and he made the experience that much more difficult and troubling. Don't chance it.

Contacting Michael for a consultation upon receiving a possible 3rd DUI in May 2014 was the best decision I have ever made. He clearly knows his stuff and provides realistic feedback on what opportunities you have to win. He gave me an outlook of the game plan and for me to relax. Michael took care of everything and answered all my questions. When it was finally time for court in November 2014 Michael demonstrated his experience and skill in front of the judge. He had a tenacity in him to use all discovery information as well as responses from the officer during cross examination well in his favor. Michael was able to win my case and really save my future. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone in a DUI situation.

I was charged with a DUI and I blew a .13 right outside my car. By the time I got to the sheriff's department I blew a .07 and .08. Micheal got the initial test (the PAS test, .13) thrown out and even though i was convicted of the DUI, I only served 5 days house arrest with a fine. DIDN'T lose my license, DIDN'T have to take any alcohol classes, NO work program. I may have lost the case but it feels like a win in my book. I ended up getting a Drunk in Public a couple months later and he got me on a program called DA Diversion. No fines, no sentence at all really. As long as I stay out of trouble for 6 months they will drop all charges. Micheal is a badass. You should definitely hire him.

I got a DUI. This was my first offense and my first experience in hiring an attorney. I hired Mr Michael Rehm based on other positive reviews I read online. He walked me through the process, told me what I needed to do every step of the way and reassured me that everything was going to be ok. The court process was as smooth as it could have been, considering the circumstances. He represented me in court and took care of everything. I definitely recommend him!

Attorney Michael Rehm helped me resolve a very difficult traffic case (Judge wanted to impose a 30 day suspension for speeding). His persistence paid off (multiple court appearances) and resulted in only a fine.
Michael Rehm is straightforward, knowledgeable and honest. He understands the Sacramento County court system really well. I really appreciated his integrity throughout the whole process. Other attorneys I called about the matter were significantly more expensive and less knowledgeable about the process. I will be recommending him in the future to people who ask me for referrals.

I was arrested in downtown sacramento for DUI and tested above the limit. I should also mention I'm a commercial driver, so my livelyhood, my house,car and ability to support myself and those that depend on me was on the line.
Michael Rehm got me an incredible deal that resulted in a not guilty verdict and me keeping my license. I can't express in words how appreciative I am for his help.

I was arrested for a dui august 2011 downtown sacramento after a friends birthday party. I blew a .79 a .81 n then the blood draw at the station was a 1.1. With a "rising blood alcohol" defense, This lawyer negatioated a wet wrecklass and a hellmandollar instead of a dui. So I received no dmv classes, no loss of license, no professional loss of licensure, $1450 fine(as opposed to dui $8,000), and 3 years informal probation, and he even coordinated with my professional board the documentation they requested. I didn't have to miss a day of work . I was extremly satisfied with the final outcome. Michael even told me after a year and a half of informal probation I could petition to get it ended early and have it expunged from my record at that time. So theoretically in a year and a half, I Can get this all wiped away. I reccomend this lawyer. His price was right and his services paid for themselves.

Michael Rehm walked me through the DUI / DWI process and helped to make a bad situation better. He provided me with all the information I needed as well as gave me support whenever I had questions. He responded quickly and friendly and always treated me with respect and compassion. Mr. Rehm's knowledge of the law and the DUI / DWI process is not limited to Sacramento County, he was able to provide specific, timely answers about the county I had questions about. Mr. Rehm represented himself as a true professional in court and gave me the confidence that every "I" was dotted and every "T" was crossed. It was a pleasure to work with Mr. Rehm and I would reccomend him if ever you are in need of an attourney.
