With the same unwavering dedication, commitment to hard work and legal excellence that David Olden brings to all his clients, he accepted my friend’s traffic case. Jose had been living in the US out of status and had multiple traffic infractions for driving without a license. These charges potentially could have resulted in a five-year prison sentence, a ten thousand dollar fine, and definite deportation for this father of two married to an American citizen.
Mr. Olsen, passionate about improving access to justice and determined to help Jose secure basic constitutional protection, worked relentlessly partnering with a local immigration attorney. Mr. Olsen personally called me evenings and weekends with updates on his latest findings. The extensive information he shared with me about the case provided assurance to both Jose and his wife that his sentence most likely would entail serving a fifteen day jail sentence with one year probation and no deportation. When Jose appeared in court, the judge withheld the jail sentence and probation! Jose was fined a mere $323. and prohibited from applying for his license to be reinstated for one year.
Formal accolades and honors are endless for David Olsen as a leader in the legal community. Responding to every client as a dear friend, Mr. Olsen respects and understands differences among clients. His positive energy is contagious as he serves his clients with confidence. Mr. David Olsen is a brilliant, yet unassuming criminal defense lawyer whose devotion to client service is unsurpassed.
