    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.

    My experience with hiring an attorney and never being in trouble with the law was a first and without a doubt nerve wrecking. Mr. Middlebrooks was very professional and straight forward from the beginning as to what the worst and best case scenarios could be prior to moving forward. His sincerity put things at ease despite the charges. (DUI). Fortunatley, for me we never went to trial and after about a year, my charges were dropped to a wet and reckless and only having to do the minimum plus probation. In addition, I never had to appear in court. Mr. Middlebrooks handled all of the scheduled court hearings etc.. I would definitely recommend him to those in need of an attorney for a DUI. At the end, the results without a doubt were beyond satisfied and greatful.

    I was charged with a DUI back in May 2015 and received a BAC of over .09 and was involved in a moderate collision with another vehicle. I contacted Richard Middlebrook immediately to avoid a license suspension. My license was taken away by the Bakersfield Police Department. I got another license within a week due Mr Middlebrook. Also I never had to go to court serve any more jail time and avoided the School for first time DUI offenders. My DUI was acquitted and the unlawful entry onto a highway was dismissed. The only charge was a dry reckless of which is a not counted in the 10 year rule for a second DUI after I served a 3 year probation. Mr Middlebrook and staff answered all of my questions and he assured me from day 1 and gave me relief from day. I was so scarred from going to jail and losing my license. We won the DMV hearing also I highly recommend Mr Richard Middlebrook.

    Obviously a man hiring a DUI attorney doesn't always make all the right decisions. Hiring Richard Middlebrook was the best decision I've made over the past couple of years! The arresting officers severely mishandled my case and I should not have been arrested. I came to his office broken and humbled, feeling like the protagonist in a John Grisham novel. I was even starting to doubt my own innocence. Enter Middlebrook, like a heftier yet better looking version Matt Damon in the Rainmaker. Not only did I leave with a sense of encouragement that carried over into the way I viewed my case, he and his highly trained staff of near geniuses eventually achieved a greater resolution than I thought possible. Middlebrook and his associates treated me like my case was the only one on the books. I felt at this time like Harrison Ford at the end of The Fugitive..... Vindicated. In all seriousness, they have restored my faith in justice, and proven that lawyers aren't just that good in movies. Not cheap, yet worth every single penny and in my opinion, if you find yourself in the clutches of Kern's famous good ol boy justice system, the ONLY way to even the playing field. I'm not a somebody, but who I am means the world to my family and I. I have my life back thanks to them, and I appreciate the fact that they fought so hard, just for me.

    Don't waste anymore time looking for another attorney. If you have stumbled across Mr. Middlebrook in your search, or referral from a friend or word of mouth call him now for a consultation. You will not find a better option or attorney that will get the results you hope and wish for.
    Not only is he extremely intelligent and resourceful, but has a profound understanding of the in's and out's of the legal system.
    Mr. Middlebrook is very personable, approachable and has a good relationship with the court as well as a strong professional network with other attorneys in the trade. But he is also a staunch, steadfast and passionate advocate when you are dealing with a case like mine. I was facing 6 six counts and not simple matters. He is a bulldog when confronting non-reasonable people.
    Mr. Middlebrook is no push over. When the other side tried to use coercive tactics, Mr. Middlebrook pushes back. Again, he is passionately, vigorously and non-reservedly spoke up to the Court. I would highly recommend him.
    Richard O. Middlebrook Law Firm is professional, straight forward, and courteous, Mr. Middlebrook spoke with me personally letting me know what I may be facing. He did not, beat around the bush when he took my case. It's really a good feeling to have had some one on your side, that truly will fight for you.
    He has the experience, expertise and resources to fight for his clients and get results. If you're facing a situation in which you need an attorney, you've found the very best. You get for you pay for and it is money well spent. I am so overwhelmed to have this situation put behind me.
    Thank you so much I am blessed to have discovered you!!!

    I had a DUI case where I had a few beers several hours prior to my traffic accident but some how I blew over the limit for the alcohol test and charged with a DUI. I hired Middlebrook despite popular opinion from the police to plead guilty and save attorney fees as they assured me of jail time. The firm took the stress away instantly. They were so professional that I did not have to worry about the case. They assured me of getting the best deal. They made sure I did not lose my driving privileges at least before the trial and kept me up to date on the issue and steps they were taking. At the end of the day, the DUI charge was dropped to a wet reckless with a substantial shift in probation sentence relative to the DUI.

    Richard Orville Middlebrook’s response: “I am so grateful you took the time to express your excitement about our representation, efforts and results in your case! Often times, officers and DMV personnel will discourage those arrested for DUI from retaining experienced and effective counsel. Of course, it's based usually on their desire to avoid the problems in prosecution's case being put on display publicly.. While there is no easy solution to any DUI allegation, we want to insure that at the time of resolving your case you know unequivocally that you received the best possible result available for your case and circumstances. Every rock overturned and every single effort made...thank you for taking the time to make our Christmas a little brighter!”

    I was arrested on my third dui in march 2013. I called Mr Middlebrook's office the Monday after I was released from jail. He scheduled my a for later that day. During our meeting he discussed my options and explained worst case as well as best case senarios. I decided to hire him that day and set up payment arrangements. I never had to go to court or meet with the DMV. Mr Middlebrook was able to get my 3rd dui reduced to a wet reckless which is unheard of. So I did not lose my license or have any jail time. I am completely satisfied with my choice to hire Mr. Middlebrook he gave me a 1/2 a year of life to me because had I gone to court without him I'm sure I would have gone to jail for at least that long and probably longer.

    Richard Orville Middlebrook’s response: “Zach, thank you so much for the kind words. It was a tough case and I'm so proud of the result our entire team got for you. It takes a legion of talented people to make cases come together...even if it does take 2.5 years. The beautiful part of having counsel who is interested in the outcome and not a quick settlement is that we have an opportunity to develop all aspects of the case and provide the DA's office with all the tools necessary to see the case from our perspective and help them do the right thing. Thank you again for trusting me. I'm so glad you feel I earned it.”

    Richard and his team are very professional and accomplished. Richard is not rated as the top in the state for nothing. My cases have been successful and my experience with him has taken the worry out of my life and enabled me to get back to living my life.

    I give Richard my highest recommendations.
