Amazing DUI attorney
Jesse negotiated a very good outcome for my dui cases. I was facing 2nd and 3rd duis in Orange and Riverside county. He got me no jail time in both cases. Also charged a very reasonable retainer.

A great lawyer someone who cares about his clients
I hired Jesse for my felony case here in San Diego and it was great. He communicated with me throughout the entire case. I got to talk to him directly. He negotiated really hard and got me an amazing deal. No jail time whatsoever. Super happy I hired him.

Best DUI Lawyer
Jesse handled my DUI case and did an amazing job. Do not look anywhere else in San Diego, this guy is a native San Diegan and he knows everyone. No one can complete with his skill. I am so glad he is the one I hired to handle my case. The result was amazing. I can't say anything else about this besides it was awesome !

The best DUI lawyer in San Diego
I did something that was out of my character and I drove drunk. It was wrong and I was very worried. I started asking people which lawyer I should hire. I have a friend who is a former cop and he told me Jesse Adriance had cross examined him in a hearing before and kind of (without saying it directly) made him look like a fool. I wanted to talk to Jesse then but I kept asking other people. We know a retired Judge in the family who we asked to ask around and a week later he came back to us with two names and Jesse was one of them. We realized this was no a coincidence and I gave him a call. I went to his office and I could tell that he was a fighter. My case was a tough one. Three other lawyers told me I had to plead guilty but Jesse told me that he would he could beat this thing. We ended up setting the case for trial which I believed was in my best interest. At trial Jesse cross examined every witness and made them look like a a complete fool. The jury hated all of them after he was done with them. Long story short I was found not guilty on all counts. I owe him everything. He was the only one that believed in me and he was able to make this happen. Now I can see why he is so exclusive and has such a great reputation in San Diego. I will be a client for life.

Great DUI attorney
Mr. Alan is an amazing attorney as well as caring and understanding. He was able to get my charges reduced as well as drop one charge. Not only did he do that, he also helped me dealing with Board of Nursing as well as the Board of Pharmacy. I dropped the ball once, and Mr Alan had my back and took care of me. I highly recommend Mr Alan if your looking for an attorney

Jesse is a highly knowledgeable, reliable, and dedicated attorny
I was charged with a DUI and was referred to Mr. Adriance by a friend. I quickly realized Jesse was a very competent lawyer and that he approaches his client relationships with care and dedication. He honestly wanted to help me so that I would not be taken advantage of and I ended up not being convicted. Jesse kept me informed on the state of the case throughout the entire process and shared valuable advice and knowledge along the way. I would recommend Jessie to anyone as he is a very effective lawyer and an overall genuine person.

The best you can ever find. Jesse does his job and he does it well done.
Things happen in life and I was very scared for my DUI outcome but Jesse was always so supportive and understanding. He is really good at what he does. When it came to pricing, well I made the best choice. He is very reasonable and is very understanding. At first I was scared that I would had made a mistake by hiring an attorney but now I know that I did the right choice. I really recommend him cause you can truly trust him with your case and he understands that you rely on him to get the best outcome.

Thank You Jesse!!!
When I got my DUI I feared the worst and didn't know where to turn. Fortunately for me Mr. Adriance came highly recommended by a close friend. I gave Jesse a call and found he was very professional and knowledgeable, just in my first call he helped ease my biggest fears. Long story short, I'm very happy with the service provided and outcome of my case. I also highly recommend Jesse as the Best DUI Lawyer in San Diego!

Fantasic DUI Lawyer!
Jesse was absolutely fantastic. Not only did Mr. Adriance get my DUI dismissed, he was actually more affordable than the other three lawyers I called for quotes. Jesse always answered the phone when I called and made me feel confident that he had my best interest in hand. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a great DUI lawyer in San Diego!

Very helpful!!
I have called Mr Adriance numerous times with legal issues. He was always very knowledgeable and helpful. Mr Adriance always made time for my calls and was easy to talk to. Mr Adriance also recommended two different lawyers to me which I eventually retained. I was very happy with all my interactions with Mr Adriance.
