After getting into an accident and being accused of reckless driving, a few of my friends who had been through a similar tribulation recommended the Fox-Bowman-Duarte law firm. "They are the best for these kind of arrests/DUI cases." so i called up and was given to Diego Vargas as a client, and he made me feel very welcome and safe. he gave me diagrams and pamphlets about how court proceedings would go, different fees, and my rights. it all was made very clear and simplified. my lacking knowledge in the court system caused me headaches some days, and i wish i could have been more in contact with Diego (having him relay each step and what action he was going to take), but i also recognized i wasn't the most high profile case. Basically, he is a great, personable, very well educated and informed lawyer and i would totally recommend him.
I have been working with Mr. Vargas for the last sixteen months on a prolonged DUI case. During this period, I have found Diego to be extremely experienced and competent in his profession. His knowledge of the legal system is impressive, as is his ability to explain the details of the law to his clients. During our first meeting, Diego described how the legal process would unfold over the coming months - and what my options would be during this time. Whenever I had questions, Diego was easy to reach either by email or cell phone, and had no problem taking time to review my case with me.
In the end, my DUI charge was reduced from criminal charge to traffic infraction, and I owe this all to Mr. Vargas and the office of Fox Bowman Duarte.
I am thankful that I had Mr. Vargas on my case, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a competent, accomplished, hard-working lawyer.
Three years ago I was pulled over for DUI and felt my life was ruined. It was the most stressful event that has ever happened to me. I was referred to Diego by a friend who also did DUI representation. Diego was responsive, caring, knowledgeable and understanding. He was always available to answer my phone calls within 24 hours, even on weekends. I had MANY questions and fears and he reassured me about all of them. My case was a difficult one which Diego and I eventually took to trial; a humiliating experience made easier by the confidence I felt in Diego's abilities. We didn't win that trial, but Diego assured me he was going to fight for me in the appeal process as long as it took. Even to the US Supreme Court, if necessary. Fortunately, it didn't come to that. Diego was able to get my sentence reduced after 2 1/2 years of work! Diego never gave up, even when I was ready to. He genuinely cares for his clients; good people who made a mistake. I am proud Diego was my lawyer.
I am a career truck driver of 20 years, with over 2 million miles of incident free operation. One Friday evening, I found myself in a compromising situation involving the Washington state patrol, a couple of beers with dinner, and the poor decision to drive.
Needless to say I was in need of the best legal defense. I was referred by a friend to the law firm of Fox>Bowman>Duarte.
My friend, in her own situation, was represented by a gentleman at the law firm by the name of Diego J. Vargas. She called Diego on my behalf late the following evening, Saturday, he took the call instantly. I had a short conversation with Diego that involved only details. I met with him the very next day, Sunday, in his office.
Diego, a former prosecutor, knows both sides of the legal system well. Not only can he accurately detail what the process is, but he can break down the sequence of events that will transpire on an individual basis, every case is different.
Diego, the entire staff of attorneys , and legal assistants worked hard on my defense, and were extremely prompt in every aspect. They kept me informed regularly.
My privilege to drive is not only a convenience, but my lively hood. Commercial truck drivers are held to a higher standard not only on a professional basis, but private as well. As a result of the expert legal defense provided by Diego and his staff, I landed the highest paying truck driving job available.
I can say with a 100% degree of certainty that I will never need Diego's services again, but I keep Diego's card in my wallet, next to my drivers license, both as a reminder, and as a referral for others.
Thank you Diego for all of your hard work and reassurance.
Sincerely, Scott A. Ivers.
Diego represented me in an extremely difficult case. He was incredible. He fought hard for me. He was always there for my questions and repsonded effectively and most importantly for me I truly felt he trusted me and did everything possible to assist in my case. There is no one better to turn to.
Diego represented me in a difficult court case that could have ended in devastating consequences to me. However because of Diego’s exceptional understanding of the law, he worked hard and was successful in getting my case dismissed. I was overwhelmed with relief and gratitude to have this strenuous period of my life over with.
Diego’s record for winning court cases is one of the highest in his area of expertise. He has also been responsible for successfully challenging and changing existing laws concerning the legality of certain practices used by state authorities. He is definitely an attorney concerned with and active in protecting your human rights.
However the most important quality Diego has is the compassion he feels for his client’s. He genuinely cares. It was so comforting to me to know that Diego was available not just to discuss the details of my case but to calm any unfounded fears that I had.
Diego is a person of integrity who provides the best possible defense for his clients
