Kept a felony off my record
I hired Daniel after getting my 4th DUI in 2019. It was a felony and I knew I was facing some serious consequences. I hired Daniel again, who had helped me with my 3rd DUI. I know he really cares about his clients because when I got my 4th DUI he was genuinely a bit upset because I had promised him I wouldn't get in trouble after my 3rd DUI. But he could tell I was really stressed out and worried so he assured me he would do everything he could. It was a really long process but Daniel came through for me AGAIN, he was able to get the felony reduced to a misdemeanor. I can't thank him enough. I recommend him especially if you've gotten a DUI.

Handled DMV & appeared for me in court
I got a DUI in San Jose and was really stressed out. I was worried about how I was going to get to work as well as how this DUI was going to effect my career. Daniel explained everything about my case to me, which really helped me stop worrying so much. He was able to get me a restricted license so I could continue going to work, he appeared for me in court, and he dealt with the DMV. He eventually got my DUI reduced to a wet reckless and that took away all my worries about my career. I can't thank him enough.

Went to trial for me
Dealing with Daniel was a pleasure. He is a very professional and skilled attorney. We decided we should take my DUI case to trial and he did an amazing job. He prepared a TON of information he was going to present at trial and he discussed everything with me before the trial begun. The judge ended up ruling in my favor! I was very happy with the outcome.

Got a DUI in Manteca
That's how I met Daniel. I did a google search and all his reviews were good. I also liked how the reviews were good at all his offices, which are in different cities. I got a free consultation at the Manteca office and I could tell he was really smart, plus he was professional. He basically handled everything for me. He dealt with the courts as well as the DMV. I was able to continue going to work. I would recommend him.

Assault/Battery charges
I hired Daniel after getting into some stupid fight at a club while I was out with my girls. I was pretty drunk so when the police officers came they basically blamed me for everything. I got charged with assault and battery which are serious charges so I started looking for a lawyer right away. I decided to hire Daniel and I'm really glad I did. He appeared for me in court and always let me know what was going on. He got me a great deal

Hired for a domestic violence case
My wife and I had gotten into a bit of a row and her son called the cops. The officers knew I had been drinking and I was eventually arrested. I knew I would need a lawyer, I did some research on the internet and Daniel had the best reviews so I decided to give his office a call. I had a free consultation and ended up hiring him. I'm glad I did, he is really good at what he does.

I recommend him
Daniel helped me with both my DUIs. After the 2nd one I was facing really serious charges. Thankfully, Daniel got the punishment drastically reduced which was such a relief. I thought I was going to have to spend time in prison but I didn't have to. He is really nice and smart!

Got my DUI down to a wet reckless
I met Daniel last year, he helped me with a DUI I got in Hayward. I got a free consultation and upon meeting him he was kind and informative. The firm's prices are affordable and after dealing with him over the last year I know I got a really good deal. He was extremely professional, knew his way around the courts and ultimately got me a better result than I expected.

Best Lawyer in the Bay
I was in need for a lawyer in the Bay Area and when it came down to looking for one Daniels Firm was the easiest to get in contact with the answered every question I had when it came down to my consultation(which was also free by the way). He also informed me of very important and helpful information that I didn't know of regarding my case. His staff is very friendly and took it upon themselves to help me out with copies as needed. In the end, I hired Daniel for my criminal defense and overall he did exactly what he told me he was going to do for me and the case was eventually dismissed. Never at one point did I feel like I was being given a run around. I will definitely hire him again.

Hired for my DUI case
I got a DUI on my 21st birthday. Worst thing ever. I was so, so upset!!! My parents hired a DUI lawyer and that's when I met Daniel and Joe. They really helped me stop worrying so much. They ensured me they'd take of it and that they did. I was so relieved and was finally able to start enjoying being 21 years old. They really handled everything like with the DMV and the court stuff. Really professional and I could always ask them any questions I had. Glad I met them

Thank you Daniel!!
I got into a huge fight at school. The cops broke it up but then in the office the cop told me I was in trouble for disorderly conduct. The cop was really scaring my because he said I could go to jail. My dad picked me up and as soon as we got home he found a lawyer on the internet and called them. We went to meet him and that's when I met Daniel. He was really nice and talked to my dad about everything. In the end I didn't get in trouble at all except I was suspended from school for a week. I really appreciate everything he did for me.

Had a great experience with Red Metric
My mom hired a lawyer for me because I got pulled over for not making a complete stop at a stop sign. When the cop asked for my ID i gave him my license and he wrote me a ticket because my license was expired too! I went with my mom to the lawyer's office and that's when I met Daniel and Joe. They were really nice and said they would take care of everything. They were able to keep points off my record which is really important. I just had to pay fines and make sure I got a new license. They're so nice! Thank you guys!! -Judy

San Mateo DUI charge reduced to wet reckless
I got charged with DUI out in San Mateo while I was out with my friends celebrating a birthday. I decided I was the most sober of the group so started driving to where we were going to have dinner. My night was ruined once we got pulled over and the cops noticed I had been drinking. I was taken to the drunk tank and charged with a DUI. I called Red Metric the next day because they had helped my cousin a couple years ago. I went into their office and met Daniel (who I had heard about from my cousin) and he explained everything to me. It took a while but he was able to get my case reduced to a wet reckless.

Got my DUI dismissed
Daniel took care of my DUI case. I'm so glad I hired him!! I got charged with a DUI because I was arguing with my boyfriend and the neighbors called the cops. When the cops came I was sitting in my car (crying) and the cops asked me to come out. When they noticed I was buzzed they said I was getting a DUI because my car was on!!!!!! I was beyond pissed especially because my boyfriend was being annoying. I feel really blessed my family hired Red Metric. I was relieved when my DUI got dismissed. Daniel really knows his stuff.

Red Metric helped me so much after I made a stupid decision
I was charged with theft because I was drunk with my friends and thought it would be funny to take something from Target. It went from something I thought was funny to something so serious. I was really stressed out. My dad found Red Metric and I went with him to their office. That's when I met Daniel. After we hired him, I felt so much better. Daniel told me all about the process and ensured he would take care of it. It took almost a year but I wasn't worrying all the time thanks to Daniel.

DUI in San Jose
I was charged with a DUI while driving through San Jose for work. It was a bummer because I live in Hayward. I searched for a DUI lawyer and after reading reviews I could tell Red Metric was the best of the bunch. I setup a consultation (which was free) and that's when I met Daniel and Joseph. They were really helpful, gave me a bunch of information regarding my case, which I was surprised about because it was just a consultation. I decided to hire them and I'm glad I did, they represented me in the Santa Clara courthouse so I didn't have to make a bunch of trips out there. Very happy with my outcome.

Helped me with a domestic violence case
Got into an argument with my ex-girlfriend, the police came and I was charged with domestic violence and assault. I went to Red Metric and met Daniel. He's a nice guy, took the time to explain everything to me. He has reasonable pricing, I was able to afford it. It was a long process but Daniel appeared for me on court dates and made sure I was prepared on the dates I had to appear. Really recommend him

Best Attorney for the Best Price!!
Daniel and his firm was really understanding of the pressures I was facing because of my case. In my culture, having law troubles is really looked down on. I heard of Mr. Vaswani through a friend and the great things he did to help him with his case so I gave him a call. Daniel told me everything that I needed to know about my case. I appreciate how straight forward he was with me. I would definitely recommend him.
