This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Daughter's first time DUI
Communication was sparse, consistently had to call his assistant in the office for information, rarely talked to him. We live on the other side of the state and daughter lives in Tahoe. Her first time DUI ended up with a 9 month AB1353 course. He did not dispute the amount the court said she blew at the police station, in fact I now wonder why we even used him. She got the worst possible outcome, and we spent a bundle to hire. Bad choice of lawyers on our part.
