I Hired James Bickford 5 months ago for a DUI. Upon my first meeting with James I was very impressed with his knowledge and experience. In court he was very tactful and had a no non sense attitude which in my eyes was great ! His staff was very helpful through this entire process thanks to Mr. Bickford my case has been resolved and reduced to a dry wreck less. With such a high breathalyzer that was more than I was expecting for a result. All I wanted was a fair fight James went above and beyond for my case. I also Highly recommend Attorney James Bickford. This is the least I can do for all the help and patience you've given me and my case. 5 Stars All the way !

One great lawyer ! I hired Mr. Bickford for a DUI not only was he aggressive in court but he had a kind of presence to him when arguing my case which made me feel good as a client. After a ton of back and forth with the prosecutor and James attempting to negotiate down my case we decided to go to trial. After a 2 day trial my case was won and I received a NOT GUILTY verdict on my DUI ! I will always recommend this this attorney to all who ask ! Thanks again for all the help James and professionalism much luck to you !

After looking for a local DUI attorney in San Fransisco, I decided to drop by Mr. Bickford's office in person. He was in court the day I saw him, but was returning shortly. I was so scared and nervous because this was my second offense and I was a .17. His secretary, Claudia was so understanding of what I was going through and she was pleasant to work with. I am a hardworking man and have too much to lose with this second time around. Mr. Bickford didn't sugar coat what could have happened to me. Trust me, I took it like a man and was prepared for the worst. But, Mr. Bickford ultimately persuaded the DA to drop the allegation of the .17 and I DID NOT spend one day in jail even after this second offense. I highly recommend Mr. Bickford to anyone who gets a DUI.
I did see the negative posting about Mr. Bickford on this website and it did not impact my decision to go with him. As a matter of fact, I think it is a bunch of BS. He is very informative and is on your side.
Thank you, Mr. Bickford and Claudia for all my many phone calls and help you have given me!

I was very apprehensive about a getting a lawyer for a DUI. Many friends advised me not to and that it was a waste of time and money. After meeting with Mr. Bickford I know otherwise.
From the start he was very to the point, and did not make any false promises as to what he offered. I knew what I faced and my options the entire time. His office kept me well informed on what they were doing and what I needed to do. In the end my DUI of 0.1 was reduced to a Wet Reckless, with no community service.
I am another testament to his already proven track record for handling DUI cases. Be reassured that he will do what he can, and I know now he can do a lot. He did for me.
I would definitely recommend his services to first timers as well as damage control for repeaters.

I have been having a little bit of a financial situation and he was willing to work with me on a payment plan. He constantly keeps me informed of what is going on with my case. I highly recommend James Bickford to anyone.
