Professional DUI Attorney

San Diego's Best DUI Lawyer - Saved my Job!!!
I met Stuart through a mutual friends referral. I knew my case was not strong - I blew a 0.14 twice. Even with my high BAC, Stuart from the beginning said I had some triable issues and did not want to simply plea my case out. He met several times with me several times at his office and even once at the Starbucks by my work when I could not make it downtown. I was extremely impressed with his quiet confidence and demeanor. I don't know how Stuart did it but he negotiated a plea deal down to a wet reckless and I was able to save my job. Stuart is San Diego's BEST DUI LAWYER!!

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Zander was very professional and extremely dedicated to my situation when I was being treated unfair in a tenant/landlord situation. I have had lawyers in the past and Mr. Zander was the only one who took an extreme interest and made sure I was taken care of. I would highly recommend him because of his immense dedication.

Tough Situation
I was caught in a tough situation. My friend recommended their attorney who helped them out. I called Stuart on a Saturday afternoon and was surprised that he called me back that night. We talked for over an hour about my case. The best thing was that he listened to me and didn't judge me. He was honest and I'm grateful for that. He never misled me and was always straight forward on what was going on in my case. If you want a lawyer who is available 24-7 and will not give you the run around, Stuart is your guy!!!
