In July, I made a stupid decision and got a DUI. I had never dealt with anything like this, so I was a little lost on where to start and who to trust. My friend told me about Christian, her DUI lawyer, and after speaking to a few lawyers before meeting Christian, I wasn't looking forward to meeting another.
But I was so relieved that I made the trip to meet him. Beyond the fact he was incredibly nice and made you feel very comfortable, he has the best attitude, is so personable, was patient and diligent, makes you feel like you're important and time worthy, really knew his stuff, yet always maintained a professional demeanor. He looked into detail on what happened in my case, whereas the other lawyers, I could tell, looked at it as "just another DUI," so I was scared they would half ass it and look at me as "just another client." Christian made sure to make you feel important, which automatically made me know he was the one I was going to hire. I also loved that he was open to texting rather than only phone calls. It made everything much more convenient, especially when I had little questions (which I had PLENTY of). He always replied in a timely manner, and was clear and helpful on every detail he mentioned. The rate was extremely fair, which I was also thankful for. And last but not least, I live in Vista and the incident took place in San Marcos, which meant court would be at the Vista courthouse. Christian made the trip all the way up here from San Diego to represent me in court. Couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. Seriously. There are tons more of great things to say about Christian.
The outcome of everything was truly shocking in the best way. I was so relieved and glad I had found Christian. He really is an OUTSTANDING lawyer and I HIGHLY recommend him. He made the entire situation I got myself into so much less stressful and much more manageable which I am so grateful for. If anyone ever needs a criminal lawyer/DUI lawyer, Christian should be the first person you go to. You won't be disappointed!

I did a lot of lawyer hunting before I came to the service of Christian Ham. Lawyers have a bad reputation of being intimidating and aggressive, and I was searching for someone that I could personally trust for my case. Someone that I can come to in unexpected times, not be judged, but would be straight forward and have my back. That's what I found in Christian. Christian is clear, knowledgeable, personable, and quickly earned my trust.
From the moment I had my first phone conversation with him to my hearing, he was very genuine and brought me at ease with his expertise and care.

Christian Ham is an outstanding criminal defense attorney. I have had the opportunity to observe Mr. Ham both in and out of court. He always conducts himself with a high degree of professionalism and integrity. In addition, Mr. Ham is a well-respected trial attorney who has a track record of obtaining favorable results for his clients. Any client would be fortunate to have Mr. Ham as their legal counsel. I endorse this lawyer.
