When I was picked up one night by CHP, I thought my life as I knew it was over. My wife all but disowned me. I had many, many people in my life to explain the situation to. My circumstances were I was off the freeway, outside my vehicle, and CHP never saw me driving. But as I found out later, these circumstances still can get you for DUI. I did not know where to turn or what to do next.
I found this law office on the internet. I wound up meeting with Geoff Dulebohn from this law office. He was able to guide me through the whole process and answer my questions along the way.
If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, I would not hesitate to call upon this office to get you through.
Joe is very knowledgeable about defense pertaining to CA DUI law and procedures. He has a good working relationship with the courts which aids in favorable defense and satisfactory results. If you want the "mercedes" of DUI defense Joe is the attorney to call.
His staff is knowledgeable about court and DMV procedures. They are very patient and courteous with your questions.
Joe and staff did an overall fantastic job of representing me and getting me through the process and system! Considering my circumstances, I thought I was going to be toast, but with Joe, it wasn't so. He and staff kept, and continue to keep, me well informed of what's going on. I feel very comfortable and secure with the VanDervoort Law Office, and highly recommend them to any and everyone in need of legal representation or advice. I also found Joe's website to be extremely informative and enlightening. Make a lunch, pull up a chair, and read the entire thing; you will gain a great deal of knowledge from it.
The law offices of Joe Vandervoort recently represented me in a misdemeanor DUI alcohol and prescription drugs. Mr Vandervoort examined the record and and decided he could help. He certainly did in negotiating to have all charges modified to eliminate all driving charges with a no contest plea for a lesser non-driving related charge ... no jail, no probation, no loss of license or license restriction and a small fine, considering what it might have been.
No attorney does the whole job of processing a case. Mr. Vandervoort's staff was always helpful, pleasant and professional. I always felt exceptionally comfortable and confident I was getting the best legal representation during the entire process.
Mr. VanDervoort's experience was a big plus. His knowledge of the local policies and personnel in the county court system was evident. His staff is also very good.
VanDervoort was upfront about everything that was happening in my case. I was kept welll informed the entire time, absolutley no surprises. Since I was a full-time student (21.0 units) he even gave me a discount from $5,000 to $3,500, which was quite generous of him. Since he knows so many people in the legal community he was also able to get me out of jail time. He's well known and respected throughout the legal/court system in Butte county.
Mr. VanDervoort is a true professional. He was quick and decisive in dealing with my DUI. I felt that he keep me very informed throughout the DMV and court process. Whether it be by phone or correspondence.
I chose to represent myself on a serperate simple restitution hearing. I failed to appear at my hearing because of a personel matter. Mr. Vandervoort reconiized that I was not responding to my name being called in court and stood up to represent me. This saved me from having some serious legal repercussions. I'm am truly grateful.
