After being arrested for a DUII, I contacted an attorney friend of mine for a referral. After an exhausting search, he recommended I hire Michael Fremont. For a very reasonable fee, Michael fought on my behalf for 9 months while the DA stonewalled and refused to turn over evidence. He never wavered from his expectations and all documentation was ultimately received.
When the District Attorney refused any meaningful settlement negotiations, we set the matter for trial. The trial lasted over 4 days during which time Michael was able to discredit the arresting officer as well as the “expert” witness hired by the prosecution. Because he has always focused on DUII defense; he was able to produce evidence to impeach the expert’s testimony as it directly conflicted with testimony he’d given on another case several years back.
Michael believes in what he does and it shows. He’s passionate about the law and understands its applications and nuances better than any other lawyer I’ve known. He constantly processes information before him and formulates solid arguments. He’s well respected in the community and deservingly considered the #1 DUII Defense counsel in San Diego County.
At the end of jury deliberations, I received a not-guilty verdict on the (a) count, the jury hung on the (b) count. The Court declared a mistrial and though the DA argued to have the (b) count left open for a retrial; Michael argued vehemently for a dismissal. The court agreed and the (b) count was dismissed.

Excellent, professional experience from first contacting him the day after my arrest, all the way through trial and reaching a verdict. The entire experience took just about 9 months and Mr. Fremont and his team kept me calm and informed with the latest information as my case moved on. Everything from DMV hearings to court appearances, he takes care of it. As stressful as the ordeal was, he was extremely honest and remained positive even when I was feeling far from it. What looked like a simple open and shut case for the prosecution (0.13 breath test taken at the time of driving, 0.14 blood test result), turned out to be a courtroom battle resulting in 12 jurors deciding "not guilty" and me being acquitted of all DUI charges.
Mr. Michael Fremont is an extremely intelligent and experienced attorney in the realm of DUI/DWI cases and I recommend his services to anyone in need of a solid defense team.

This man is a genius attorney. I felt completely at ease after talking to him. I can not believe what our police department is able to get away with. For less than the price of a DUI fine, Mike was my savior. Watching him in court is like watching a professor educated the court system (DA, judge, officers, etc) on the legal rights of the public. If you are in trouble call this man immediately. Mike made time for me within hours of contacting him. He is prompt, to the point, and completely effective. He knows the law better than the DA in my case so much so that the judge fined the DA for points Mike brought to light. I can not say enough about this attorney. WORTH EVERY PENNY!

I endorse this lawyer's work. A truly talented defense attorney must possess a unique combination of intellect, savvy, creativity, tenacity and dedication. Michael Fremont is one of those rare individuals. His understanding of both the law and the science of DUI defense make him an outstanding choice if you need an DUI defense attorney in San Diego.

Michael is one of the most knowledgable attorneys in the DUI arena. When I have only minutes to answer a question, his number is one I call. Mr. Fremont is also known for providing one of the top DUI defense seminars in southern California. In court, Judges know him and respect his opinions and prosecutors know that they need their best case to even hope to prevail.
