I received a 'Drunk and Disorderly' citation, along with a court date.
I called Roger Lytel. Great move.
Roger answered the phone the first time I called.
He immediately went to work by asking me the right questions.
It was quickly clear to me I was dealing with a real professional who
knew both Santa Barbara and it's legal system well.
He told me not to worry,
and a few days later I was informed that
all charges had been dismissed.
I highly recommend the law office of Roger Lytel
for anyone facing charges
like I was, who wants an attorney who is agressive and extremely competent.
Roger delivered, and gets a five star rating from me.

Lytel thoroughly examined the evidence and worked up a compelling case - video, audio, witnesses, reports, expert views, identified inconsistencies by police, etc. - all of which got my case dismissed. The cops were liars and Lytel got the District Attorney to at least come to the conclusion that many of the allegations were inconsistent with the evidence. He also had showed a deceptive pattern by police that suggested the arresting officers were impeachable.

Mr. Lytel defended me in my 2nd DUI within 7 years, what I could have got compared to what Mr. Lytel bartered for was all the difference. He always took my calls and punctually returned them. Very personable which to me is everything when you have an attorney that has to go before a Judge and DA in your behalf. I hope I don't need an attorney again but Mr. Lytel is the only one for me. On another note, even his Secretary is polite and makes sure your message gets to Mr. Lytel.
