Michael Jon Fremont

About me

I am considered the most experienced DUI attorney in San Diego County. I am recognized state wide as a top DUI trial lawyer.  I have represented persons accused of DUI's  for over 27 years, including other attorneys, athlets, teachers, nurses, doctors, mechanics, peace officers, and even a member of the clergy. I have a national and state wide reputation for my knowledge and skills in DUI/DMV  defense and highly respected by other defense attorneys, judges and prosecutors.I am considered to be among the top DUI defense attorneys in California.


Clients appreciate the comprehensive and supportive legal representation they receive from me and my staff.  I have successfully represented clients throughtout San Diego in cases from first time DUI/Drunk Driving offenses to repeat DUI offenders as well as felony DUI charges with injury and death cases that can carry signifigant penalties, including jail or prison time.


My father was a lawyer, my uncles were lawyers and my cousins are lawyers. I was born for this. A 27 year legal career gives me a depth of experience others don't have and is a key ingrediant in my representation. Criminal defense was and is my calling. My expertise is DUI defense.  I have provided training to other lawyers and have put together DUI defense materials that are used state wide by attorneys throughout California.   


Getting arrested for a DUI does not have to be a devistating experience. A  well qualified attorney, such as myself , does make all the difference.  Call me direct anytime (760) 613-5384 (cell) .
