There is no “one size fits all” defense against criminal or DUI charges. Kirk approaches each case with unique tactics and uses his diverse background to find satisfying and effective resolutions that will specifically fit the needs of each case. He views each client as a valuable individual and not as just another case number. Kirk has a multi-faceted approach and can use his experience and knowledge to find solutions to tough problems.

You and Kirk will make every decision together and every decision will be the right one for you. Not many attorneys can truly say that they will protect the best interests of their clients, but Kirk strives for client satisfaction and productivity. He will work tirelessly and do everything in his power to attain the best possible outcome for your case.

Kirk Tarman is the best option around!
I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Kirk Tarman whom represented me for the last couple of years. Kirk went above and beyond to fight my case and all of his hard work ultimately got my case dismissed! He is a great communicator, he will be straight forward with you from the get-go, and will explain all options throughout the process. I highly recommend having Mr. Tarman on your side and would hire him again in a heartbeat! 5 stars all the way!! Thank you Kirk Tarman and associates!!

Best Dui Attorney without a doubt
I would like to Thank the law offices of Kirk Tarmann. They not only made it easy and appeared for me at every court but I did not have to travel from my home state to appear. I was able to concentrate on my life and my daily activities. I mean I was worried during the process. I'm a driver and have gotten this DUI would have ruined my career and would have been the worst for my family you can only imagine. I understand everyone's situation and everyone's situation is different. However I think everyone needs someone with experience. All I have to say is I was lucky enough to have kept my job Thanks to Kirk. Bro honestly you saved my life and future more importantly my families. I will learn from this as well. Thanks man I owe you .

Tarman Law Firm - very good lawyers
I got charged for vandalism and hired Tarman & Shamuilian Law firm. They explained to me everything and took care of my concerns. They represented me in court without my physical appearance in the hearings. They got my case dismissed! Very good lawyers. I highly recommend them.

A definite must!
I am so thankful to Kirk Tarman for the outcome we had for our case. Unfortunately as a family we found ourselves with an attempted murder charge. Kirk, Evan and Sabrina gave 110% to our case. The office was always able to answer our questions and fight hard in court. The outcome was so much more favorable that what it could have been. We were looking at 12 years to life and because of Kirk’s staff and his diligence we were given a year with time for good behavior. That was just amazing! I really appreciated how helpful Sabrina (paralegal) was. Sometimes you may feel like you’re asking too many questions. Sabrina always made us feel comfortable with asking and gave amazing facts to help our case. Kirk always responded back quickly and kept us in the loop. I highly recommend this law office for all your needs.

Sabrina, the attorneys Kirk & Evan were very friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, efficient and treated me kind & respectful. There is no way I could have chosen a better Law firm. I am forever truly grateful they handled my case. My case was completely dismissed. I highly recommend The Law Offices of Kirk Tarman & Associates

Amazing
Kirk Tarman is absolutely the best! I can't express how grateful I am to him and everyone in his office for the incredible job they did on my case. I had been publicly, professionally and personally humiliated. Yet, even at times when things seemed the bleakest Kirk was always there fighting for me. Kirk was able to take a false allegation and systematically expose it and prove my innocence. Throughout the entire process Kirk was calm and even keeled, even when I was a basket case. He was available when I needed him, he answered all my questions honestly and gave it to me straight with no BS. If you're looking for a great attorney who will fight for you, who's honest and straightforward, I would highly recommend Kirk Tarman!

Dui case
I couldn't be happier with the service we received from this law office. From the very beginning I could tell that these lawyers knew a lot about dui cases and throughout our court days they went above and beyond to make sure we were prepared for whatever might come our way. They definitely prepare you for the worst but get you the best. They covered every single base and we got an amazing outcome. I would recommend them any day.

Excellent
I had the pleasure of working with Kirk, and his office regarding my DUI case. I was originally charged with 2 felony counts ( vehicle codes 23153A & 23153B). Kirk's office was very professional and was able to negotiate with the District Attorney get my conviction reduced to a 1 count misdemeanor. Throughout the whole ordeal of two court dates, he and staff was available for any of my questions and concerns.
