I was in the market for a lawyer to help me clear my arrest record for a DUI that the D.A never filled charges, but the arrest was still on my record. I was all set to meet with another lawyer the day after I gave Brian a call, but I was referred to Brian from another lawyer contact that I picked up from my job. Called his office, got him on the phone, explained my situation, he told me exactly what he would do and how much it would cost. I wanted to set up a face to face meeting or we could have just corresponded via snail mail. I chose the face to face option.
I went to the previously scheduled meeting with the other lawyer. The other lawyer said what Brian proposed to do could not be done and was going to charge me 85 percent more then what Brian quoted. I thanked him for his time and went to my meeting with Brian.
When I met with Brian it was painless, I peppered him with questions about wether I was legally entitled to the remedy he was seeking. He said that I was, a direct contradiction of the previous lawyer that I talked to. After signing things that allowed Brian to represent me I again asked him when I could expect a result of the remedy he was seeking with SDPD. He gave me a one month turnaround. I walked out of his office reassured. And only spending a tiny fraction of what the other lawyer was quoting me.
The month came and I got a letter from Brian with what he had promised from SDPD. He also requested that my arrest be sealed and destroyed. This was the same process that the other lawyer was going to charge me an arm and a leg for. I called Brian and got him on the phone right away, asked how much the extra motion was going to cost. He told me not to worry and will discuss any extra fees dependent on how SDPD responded to the request to seal and destroy. Again this was a request that the first lawyer said that SDPD usually never grants. Brian on the other hand told me to wait it out for their response. He again gave me a one month deadline for them to respond.
Before the one month deadline I got another letter from Brian indicating that SDPD had agreed to seal and destroy the record of the arrest. I can not thank Brian enough, I can legally and honestly answer any question about wether I have ever been arrested with a resounding NO. Do your research first and talk to Brian and see what he says. I trust him 100 percent.

I would like to commend Mr. McCarthy for his outstanding representation on a family member's legal issues. He is a very hard-working and very well-informed attorney who does his best for his clients. He thoroughly researched all our options and determined a good resolution for our case. I recommend him as an attorney who is not only very knowledgeable, but also really cares about his clients.

Brian McCarthy recently handled my son's DUI. He was very professional and reliable. The case involved rescheduling the hearing a couple of times because my son was out-of-state, traveling from his office downtown to attend hearings at the Vista Courthouse, obtaining information from a previous lawyer, etc. Brian returned all phone calls promptly, mailed copies of all documents, and kept us informed every step of the way. Brian is truly a concerned lawyer who is passionate about helping his clients. He listened to our concerns and worked very hard to resolve our case. We could not have hoped for anyone better. He was above and beyond our expectations.

My family and I have worked with Brian for almost 30 years now, unfortunately my family has had one to many interactions with the law, from the common case of a dui to many other legal matters. He has represented my dad, my sister, my best friend, my aunt, and my cousin through marriage. He has always been there on the drop of a dime, no matter what type of bind you might be in and is supportive, kind, honest, TRUSTWORTHY and compassionate about every case he has delt with no matter the circumstances. I would recommend him to anyone that would be in need of the service's he provides without a hesitation. He is not your stereotypical type of attorney that most would say about any attorney, but this man has a good heart and is honest, and is extremely knowledgable and passionate when it comes to his trade. I would rate him 10 out of 10 on all levels because hes the best of the best, and I would never hesitate to call him again if I needed him because I know that he will take care of my family and I, with no questions asked no matter what!!!!! Thank you Brian for being such a great attorney and always being such a great help to my family and I, you really are a blessing! Keep up the great work and I will make sure that if I know anyone in a bind to refer them to you first!
