Bad things sometimes happen to good people. I hope that you never need an attorney, but if you do call Jude. I cannot say enough about how professional and personable this guy is. He will take take care of you.
I highly recommend Jude Koenig as a DUI lawyer. Jude did a great job of explaining all of the facts of my case as well as my options, and he kept me well informed throughout the legal process. In a case that would almost definitely have resulted in jail time/significant community service due to a high BAC - Jude was able to convince the judge to close the case with zero jail time or required service hours. For this I am extremely thankful. If you need a DUI attorney in the Truckee/Tahoe area (as so many do) - hire Jude Koenig.
Mr. Koenig provided me with quick legal advice at a time when I didn't know which way to turn. He listened to me, asked questions to gain a deeper understanding of my situation and eased my worries with his knowledge and experience in the field of Criminal Defense. After my consultation with Mr. Koenig I was able to feel assured that I had someone on my side and could face any challenges that may lay ahead. He gave me the peace of mind that I wouldn't have obtained otherwise. I deeply thank him and would highly recommend him.
Mr. Koenig took our case up against the priciest and nastiest attorneys in the area. When the decision became up to a judge after two years do to an arbitration clause, Jude told us it was a 50-50 crapshoot and if we lost, we would incur the oppositions exhorbitant fees. His knowledge and personal opinions saved us over $80,000.00 as new Truckians versus the old boys network. We settled for a small amount and the case was a wash but it did not wipe us out financally! Highly recommend this astute attorney
I was terrified that I was going to lose my driving license and spend time in jail. Mr. Koenig was able to significantly reduce the charges against me - I did not lose my license and spent no time in jail. He was a prosecutor so he's extremely knowledgable of the system's ins and outs. He responded quickly to all my concerns and made me feel confident in his skills - I felt very assured of a positive (considering the circumstances) outcome.
