I got my first and only DUI in San Mateo County and after reading many lawyer websites and making many phone calls to various lawyers I decided to retain attorney Mark Blair. Mark had some great information on his website and when I called his office his assistant David answered. David was the only assistant I spoke with in my many calls to law offices that was able to answer my questions vs. just taking a message. Also, Mark Blair made it a point to call me back the same day as I had called him even though it was in the evening as he was driving home from a day in court.
Once retained Mark Blair continued great communications throughout the whole process. Mark kept me informed of what to expect at each step both on the court side and the DMV side. Everything Mark told be to expect is exactly what happened. Mark also recommended that I start the DUI classes prior to my court date, which paid off when the DA tried to get the judge to give me more months of DUI class vs. the 3 months of class I got (the minimum). Mark met me at court before my arraignment explained to me what to expect and then resolved my case that morning in court. He then went with me upstairs to pay my fine and to get signed up for community service. On the DMV side Mark was able to minimize the impact on my license so I did not have to go through the 30 day hard suspension and instead I had a restricted license during the whole DMV penalty period.
I highly recommend retaining attorney Mark Blair if you are facing DUI charges!

Mark Blair is representing me on my 3rd DUI case. He has been great! Him and his staff have taken care of everything. He is extremely knowledgeable about DUI laws. He has done everything to get me the best possible outcome & has been an extremely great help. I am very happy that I decided to go with him, I would most likely be in jail right now if it wasn't for him. Thank you so much Mark Blair! You are the man!

I hired Mr. Blair for two separate cases. The first case turned out better than I could have hoped for. The second case , believe it or not , even turned out better than I could have possibly imagined.
Mr Blair , in my opinion, not only knows the law inside & out, but actually CARES about his clients.
If you need an attorney that is both experienced AND affordable, then Mark Blair is your man.
Without sounding "overly-sincere", I strongly recommend Mark Blair, should you happen to be in need of a professional Lawyer.

I have never been in trouble before and I was referred to Mark Blair, I was very confused and scared in my situation at the time. Mark explained the situation and the steps I needed to complete to get this all behind me. To my surprise looking at my situation, Mark has made it a more positive result and without his services I'm certain it would have been worse. I highly recommend his services to anyone. Sincerely, Qiang

Mark Blair was an excellent attorney in assisting me with my case. He was very responsive to my questions and ensured that I was well prepared for my court appearance. During such a stressful time, I would only want someone with Mark's excellent reputation and experience.

Mark did a wonderful job on my case. I did not lose my driver's license and penalties were kept to the absolute minimum. I have recommended him to all my friends and associates. Thanks Mark!!!

Mark was wonderful. I had worked with other lawyers before, but Mark really came through for me when I needed it most. I had a third DUI, and Mark pulled some magic and got me a drunk in public! No jail, just a fine! He came to me to court and everything went much better than I could have ever expected! I would definitely recommend Mark. He was great, as well as responsive. His assistant, David, is really helpful!

We hired Mark to help with my wifes DUI. He seemed friendly enough on the phone. However once he got our money the conversations became very short and he took much longer to return calls. On the night before she was to appear in court he called and said he "had a big case" and would not be able to make it to court the next mornign, but was sending a collegue "who is fully apprised of the case." The next day we found the woman he had sent, she was having trouble finding us as she was looking for a man based on the mispelling of my wifes name! Aslo she had no clue about our case and we had to try and fill her in on the circumstances in the 10 minutes before court started! What was even worse was on the phone he stated that his 2,000.00 fee would cover the case and when time came to help expunge her recored. Now he says we "misunderstood him" and the "law is very confusing guys." Even after I showed him the email he snet me stating that he claimed the I changed it, as he would never say anythign like that, let alone put it in writing. Bottom line is I really wishd we had hired anyone else but this guy, dont make the same mistake we did, hire somone who actually cares about you and your case and is not just looking for a paycheck.

I'm a Class A driver with a good driving record that made the mistake of relying on an iPhone BAC app to determine if I was safe to drive. Long story short, I got my 1st (and last) DUI in Nov. I was inundated with spam mail for DUI attorneys but Mark's mailer stuck out. I met with 3 attorneys (1 strongly recommended by my family lawyer) but after speaking with Mark, my guts told me he was my lawyer in this case. I'm ecstatic that I made the correct choice. On my initial call, I wasn't passed off to an assistant but instead spoke with Mark directly. The conversation was positive, uplifting and empowering. He and his staff kept me informed and truly eliminated all of the stress associated. Ultimately, he artfully persuaded the Court to reduce my DUI to a wet-reckless. We are presently pursuing a Helmondollar ruling with DMV to avoid license suspension. I believe Mark has a genuine concern for his clients and truly puts in maximum effort to get the best possible outcome. I strongly recommend his services to anyone facing DUI charges.
