one of the best!
siegrist is one of the best lawyers I've met. I have had a few lawyers in my time, I can't say that it's not my own fault. But Siegrist really treated me like he cared about what happens ti me. Most others that I had in the past were just out to take my cash and do the minimum. I highly recommend siegrist

HIRE THIS ATTORNEY! You won’t regret it!
James helped me out big-time on a DUI charge which was complete BS to begin with. I was a wreck. James explained everything. Whenever I called or texted him, he was nearly always available, or he got back to me quickly. I would recommend him 100%, especially if you didn’t even break the law in the first place. James took what seemed to me to be a hopeless situation, worked hard, and took good care of me. Hire this guy

Really Helpful Lawyer
I got charged with a domestic violence case earlier this year, even though I was the victim. I was really scared because I had never been arrested before or even accused of any crime, not even a traffic ticket. I felt really embarrassed and didn't know what to do or who to call. My cousin recommended James Siegrist to me. He was easy to talk to, and really listened to me. He took care of everything, and I got my life back. I highly recommend him and have already referred other people.

I ned help
Hi, I talked to you on the phone and you really gave me some good advice. My ex lied to the cops about me and said I hit her when I didn't. No case was ever filed against me after I followed your advice. I want to try to sue her for her lies. I don’t know what to do. I want her to pay for my costs and bills that resulted from her lies. I don't know what to do. Can you help me?

I recommend him
Mr. Siegrist is great at what he does and he really cared about me and my case. He cuts straight to the chase, giving his honest opinion. He was always on top of things, and didn’t make me any false promises. He even cleared up a lot of the bad and false information I had been given. I would highly, highly recommend him for anyone in need of a good lawyer I know for sure that I will go see him again if I need to!

The Best DUI representation
I was arrested for a DUI, and called James after receiving dozens of letters from lawyers. James is a great lawyer who took the time to ask me questions about every detail of my case. His knowledge of the law and procedure really gave me the peace of mind that I was looking for. I felt that I was being represented by the best. James really reduced the stress of this terrible experience. He was truly very competent and took great care of me. I put my faith, money, and trust in him to defend me and I don’t regret it at all.

Honest and caring
I called many attorneys, and then I was referred to James by a friend. I couldn't be more grateful for the recommendation. James was honest and explained everything to me. I made that first call to him and got the clear answers that I needed. He listened to my story and got me through it, explaining my options and the consequences of each one. James took care of everything. We made a plan of action, and James carried it through. He made my case his headache instead of mine. He did the worrying for me and I couldn't be happier. I can't thank him enough.

Great Results
James was an absolute amazing lawyer for me. He explained all of my options and told me that I had a great case with good odds of a dismissal. He was right! My case was dismissed. I can’t guarantee that will happen with your case, but I was really happy. I highly recommend him.

I'm glad I found him
James did an outstanding job on my case. From the get go he seemed like a real expert in his field. He seemed very straight forward and honest. I really appreciated the fact he didn't try to up-sell me on anything. I'm not from California and was just passing through. I got hit with a bogus charge while on vacation. I really thought I was going to go to jail. I hired James and he really went to bat for me. More importantly, he kept me out of jail.

Highly Professional
Sometimes bad things happen to good people. But I was lucky enough to find a great Attorney. He was very professional and knowledgeable. I felt very confident that he truly cared about his clients. He was willing to fight for me. Life is very unpredictable, get a great attorney.

Hats off for the best representation I've ever had
Attorney James Siegrist was able to answer all my questions and resolve my doubts in reference to my case. His responses to my questions were clear and understandable, even to a non-attorney. He explained the various outcomes and got me the best possible deal. He kept me well informed and updated at every phase. He charged me a flat fee with no hidden costs or gimmicks and gave me great quality and service. I recommend him to anyone who is in need of help.
