Where do I even begin!? This man changed my life! I was a second time offender for dui and after I talked to Mr. Middlebrook he reassured me that I was in great hands and he was not kidding! I read all these posts you are all reading right now and honestly thought it was to good to be true but after reading countless posts I was quick to realize he didnt get these reviews for nothing. So we talked and he was straight forward with me and I felt confident after talking to several wishy washy dui lawyers something just felt different and reassuring with Mr. Middlebrook. I paid the money and off he went to doing EVERYTHING! I did not appear to a single one of my 6 or 7 court dates, him and his team handled everything and kept me well informed and in the loop and his staff is so courteous. I had so many questions and Tanis and their team were always there with a helping hand! So allegedly I had blown a .22 with the field breathalyzer but they took me to get blood because there breathalyzer machine at the station did not work. I thought I was dead in the water and it sucked because I am a navy veteran who was seeking a career in law enforcement and was in the hiring process, I had just passed my written exam and was scheduled for the physical fitness test I had waited the 5 years from my first dui and this was legitimately the first time i drank and drove from my first DUI, some friends came in town for christmas and we all went out on christmas eve and not thinking I got behind the wheel Well this DUI defense attorney guru got my case completely dropped and thrown out!! I honestly have no idea how he did it but he did! Im just an average joe sharing my success story with you because if you are in the situation i was in and reading these reviews well they are legit and he is legit! I got no fines no classes its as if it never happened, oh forgot to mention my license was never suspended from the DMV throughout the whole process especially being a second time offender I knew I would lose my license, I did after my first one but nope kept it the whole time! Thank you Mr. Middlebrook for saving my railroad career I have right now and my chances of my future in law enforcement career are still an option! The money is worth it if you want to save your future from a bad mistake! Im a good person I work everday I take care of my family and I don't go out often because of things like this but Mr. Middlebrook just allowed me to keep my career, my license and chances of a future one if I still decide to go that route. I cant thank this man enough!!! He saved my life and no amount of money will ever be able to repay the debt I owe him!!! I'm keeping this anonymous because I never told my job about it in hopes it would get dropped and it did because of Mr Middlebrook and now I will never have to tell them because if I lost my license working in the railroad I would not have been able to keep my job! Thank you Mr. Middlebrook and staff for saving my life!!

Mr. Middlebrook cost a little bit more than a lot of the lawyers I spoke with, but when you're life is on the line, the difference of a few dollars becomes meaningless. Best results imaginable!

From start to finish no one could have handled my case better. Mr. Middlebook and his staff handled my case with candor, accuracy and professionalism you'd expect from such an outstanding law firm. Have no doubt Middlebrook and Associates is the best in every aspect. I couldn't be happier.

I don't typically find free time to post reviews, but I feel this is far too important not to share. I called and spoke to several attorneys in Bakersfield before choosing one that was cheaper than Mr. Middlebrook. Shortly afterwards, I happened to meet a Bakersfield police officer at a community event I was involved with who was kind enough to listen to my story and told me that most of the attorneys in Kern County have never even won a DUI trial but even more importantly they've never actually tried a DUI case before. He recommended that before things went to far, I call Richard Middlebrook. He has 20+ years of experience in trying hundreds of cases and won a vast majority of them. I don't know what your situation is, but for me my future, family and job were on the line and I couldn't afford not to hire him. Even though I've spent initial money on a different lawyer, I was lucky enough to be given that information because I came so close to putting my life in somebody's hands that didn't have the experience to handle it. Thank you Mr. Middlebrook for winning my future back!!

Mr. Middlebrook took my case and was up front in letting me know we had a good case, but no guarantees about the outcome. After eighteen months of wrangling with the Kern County D.A.'s office, he was able to have the case dismissed. He then took on the D.M.V. and again the case was dismissed. If you ever are charged with D.U.I., this is the only attorney to hire, bar none!!!

I was charged with a DUI to which there was also an unfortunate auto accident involving myself and a parked vehicle. Fearing the worst Mr. Middlebrook managed to work out a deal that I could never imagined getting. I avoided jail time, work release, and an interlock device. Mr. Middlebrook and his staff are excellent at what they do and would highly recommend them.

Everyone makes mistakes. If one of your mistakes happens to be a DUI, Mr. Middlebrook is the man to call to handle the situation. Mr. Middlebrook did the impossible in my case, and made sure my DUI did not ruin my life and career. His staff is extremely understanding and supportive through the entire process. If you are reading this it means you made the same mistake as so many others, and as so many others have come to realize; Mr. Middlebrook is the man to call to help you get out of this situation as smoothly and with the best outcome as possible. Make sure to learn from your mistakes, but in the time being stop the bleeding and call Mr. Middlebrook.

I was arrested for a first time DUI on December of 2015. I went to Mr. Middlebrooks's office the very next day and explained my case. He gave me a step by step overview of what is going to happen. It would be a shame on my part if I didn't review his teams work for me. I was updated promptly and they basically took over the entire area and only called me once or twice where I was actually needed with my case. After 6 months of deliberation, he managed to get my case thrown out due to technicalities and all charges were dropped against me. My greatest gratitude goes to his entire team. I've had sleepless nights over my arrest and how my future was going to be permanently affected if I had been convicted. After researching, I noted that he actually charges a bit more than the average for a DUI attorney in town, but I have absolutely no regrets whatsoever with his service and I would not hold back from recommending his office to anyone.
I truly appreciate his teams commitment to quality of work they have done.

Mr Middlebrook came highly recommended by a friend who is also an attorney. Mr Middlebrook's knowledge and experience was immediately evident to me during our first conversation about my DUI citation. While I've heard all too often that it's not worth trying to fight a citation for a DUI, he gave me the confidence to do so when I ended up getting one. From that day forward he and his team took care of everything and kept me well informed throughout the process. He was very responsive to any questions I had and while he provided options at every stage along the way, his advice (which you'd have to be a fool not to follow given his track record in these cases) prompted me to pursue the best outcome possible rather than settle for less. He knew he could win and he did. My case was dismissed by the judge before it ever made it in front of a jury. I couldn't be more thankful to him and to my friend for the reference. Hopefully this recommendation will help others acheive a similar outcome by utilizing his expertise. He's worth every penny. Give him a call and speak to him just once about his experience and advice as it pertains to your specific situation. You'll understand what I mean.
