Ms. Gorelick is experienced (FYI, her father was a DUI lawyer too!), competent, respected, and most importantly, selfless. During our initial phone call, first thing she said after hearing about my ridiculous night - "Do not hire an attorney." She went on to explain exactly how the case will be thrown out and it happened exactly how she predicted. I was still nervous and skeptical naturally, so I retained her immediately (As Other lawyers wanted to go to court and charge me high fees in the name of "profit" and "greed"). I paid her the minimum fee to monitor the case even though she repeatedly told me that I do not need an attorney for my case.
DMV case was thrown out immediately. Speaking of DMV, you know Lynn is the best when the DMV agent says that Gorelick is the best, objective, and an exceptional negotiator.
Court case was thrown out as well few months after expected.
Throughout the process, I annoyed the heck out of Ms. Gorelick, I even got angry at the system, but she was patient with me.
I will point out that Ms. Gorelick is very calm and objective. So, yes, at times, it may appear that she is not energetic but I believe that's just the wisdom she has gained working with her father for a long time and then becoming a lawyer herself. She has seen millions of such DUI cases and other worse criminal cases - So I can see why she can be so calm. That said, her calmness is her strength, not her weakness.
Thank you for giving me support through this process and saving my professional license and career. I had too much to lose. However, in a way, I'm glad that incident occurred, because I am re-evaluating, resetting, and implementing my priorities in life. "All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me... You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you."
Thank you, Ms. Gorelick.

Lynn is an extremely dedicated and competent attorney. Trusting her with our grandson's criminal case was the best decision we could have made. She is hardworking, loyal and Knowledgeable. But most of all, she gets positive results for her clients.
Our family is so grateful to Lynn for helping us through a very difficult situation. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for an attorney.

After my incident of DUI arrest, I started contacting attorneys for initial consultation. Lynn clearly stood out among the five attorneys I contacted. She got straight to the details of my case, she is very knowledgeable, and detailed. So, I hired her as my attorney, and let me tell you that is the best decision I could have made that brought a little peace to my head at that state.
Lynn and her team were very helpful, experienced in this area and were there to handle everything for me. I had a positive outcome on my case. Lynn knows the system and players very well. She might take a bit longer but she waits for the right moment to deliver you a positive outcome.
Do not look around any more......hire Lynn and relax.

I’m writing the day I received my new unrestricted California driver’s license. I owe this joyous occasion entirely to my attorney, Ms. Lynn Gorelick. This outcome seemed impossible the night I was arrested. The details of my case are much less important than the lessons I learned as Ms. Gorelick guided me through the process.
DUI cases involve multiple departments - police, district attorneys, judges, DMV hearing officers - any of which can dramatically affect your outcome. In appearing before these agencies, I witnessed Ms. Gorelick’s integrity and capability assure my case a fair hearing.
Ms. Gorelick’s reputation for integrity provided the trust necessary for an open minded consideration of the “facts”. Her capability, a combination of long experience and comprehensive knowledge of case law, presented the “facts” of my case in a compellingly different light.
Ms. Lynn Gorelick, is currently serving as ‘President’ of the California DUI Lawyers Association. On her site you’ll see the prominent roles she has in other local and national professional DUI defense organizations.

Well hell, if your reading this, you are mostly likely in a little bit of trouble. It sucks, and its hard, and its going to take a long time to work it out. There is help out there.
About two years ago I was in an accident where I was driving too fast to impress a friend and ran into a parked car... It was a dumb move for sure, but don't let my stupidity keep you from reading on, let it fuel you. A few minutes after my friend and I got out of the car and found there were no injuries, I was promptly given a once over by a law enforcement officer and arrested for a DUI.
I was terrified. After a horrible night, it was 10:00 in the morning and I had just gotten out of Santa Rita jail. I called my parents and broke the news... luckily they told me the very first thing to do was contact a lawyer. Like yourself, I found myself doing Google searches and found this website. I looked for the highest rated Lawyers and called them all. Most were helpful, but I had no idea what I was doing...
...Then Jason answered the phone when I called Lynn's office. He was one of the most compassionate and understanding individuals I had ever spoken with. He spent nearly an hour with me. He listened carefully to my story and proceeded to tell me all about what was going to happen, what needed to happen before that, and how to get on with my life in the meantime. He inspired confidence in me, and helped me understand that this situation had not instantly ruined my life. I needed that so much.
Soon after, I spoke with Lynn, who was fascinated with my case. See, my job is to fix vehicles and then test drive them, so being able to continue driving was absolutely vital to me maintaining my employment. Lynn understood this and was determined to help me reach an outcome that helped me keep my license.
Countless hearings came and went. Lynn was there to instruct me on each piece I was to be involved in. She was patient with me the whole way and helped me to be comfortable when it was my time to testify. As afraid as I was of the process, she did her best to prepare me and give me the confidence I needed to get in there and tell my side.
Our case took a very, very long time to conclude. Lynn was determined to finish our DMV hearing first to secure my driving privileges as best possible. About 20 months into the case, She won my DMV hearing. My license was reinstated. About two months later, she got me the most favorable outcome I could have hoped for on my DUI. My charge was reduced to a Wet Wreckless with a manageable fine, standard court probation and 12 hour DUI class. I could hardly believe it. I can still hardly believe it. She's good.
A couple of points I want to make.
1. She is expensive. More so than many of the other lawyers out there. However, she also saved me thousands of dollars in fines, classes, devices, etc.
2. She is patient. This basically means she is going to take things slow in your case. I cannot speak to all lawyers, but your case is most likely going to be ongoing for over a year.
3. Speaking of taking things slow, you may lose faith. You may think "How is it possible that after all this time she still has any interest in my case?"... She does. After 20 months of continuing and waiting, she picked just the right moment and struck. Did I mention shes good?
I just want to say thank you to Lynn, Jason, and the rest of the staff that makes this operation work. You guys all do an incredible job and I will never forget what you have done for me.
All my best,

Almost a year ago, I was arrested for suspicion of a DUI. The circumstances in my situation were somewhat abnormal. I was not initially charged so, I hired the least expensive attorney I could find at the time to help work with me through the DMV administrative process. Throughout that process, he kept saying he would give it his best shot, but typically people do not win the DMV hearings. I was told not to get my hopes up. Based on the abnormal circumstances of my case, he was somehow able to win the DMV hearing. He told me I probably would not get charged with the actual DYI since it had already been 5 months since the incident. Two months after that, I was charged, I reached out to my previous attorney and he told me he really didn’t think I had a solid defense in court, but he would try if I wanted. I reached out to a friend who told me about avvo.com. As I looked at the reviews, those of Lynn Gorelick seemed to stand out. I made the phone call and upon speaking to her I felt that she wouldn’t just ‘try” to help me out, but would strongly advocate and fight for me. I was very satisfied with the outcome of the case she was able to obtain. My suggestion to anyone faced with this dilemma is to hire Lynn, do what she asks you to do, sit back, and let her do her thing. Bonus points for having a wonderful paralegal, such as Teresa Vickers.

Lynn and her office team were amazing! I had a long process in court, as well as, the DMV and Lynn was there with me every step of the way.
When first looking for an attorney, Lynn was 1 of 4 that I contacted. The ONLY attorney I spoke with that seemed genuine and passionate about working on my case. Once I saw her in action, I was very impressed with her knowledge and track record she has within the judicial system and the DMV administration.
Hands down the best choice I could have made in an attorney. Thank you Lynn Gorelick and your team for all your hard work.

After my DUI arrest, I was panicked and terrified of the process! As I began receiving letters in the mail from lawyer after lawyer, I did my research and Lynn stood out the most. I am glad I made the decision to hire her to take on my case. The minute I spoke with her, she responded compassionately and I could feel that she was truly invested in helping with my case. She is extremely knowledgeable about her work and knows exactly what to do to get you the best results for your case! Now, a year after my arrest, I am stress free! My DUI was reduced to a Wet & Reckless and I won my DMV hearing. I would HIGHLY recommend Lynn Gorelick to anyone that needs representation for a DUI/DWI. Thank you Lynn for your amazing care, expertise, and representation throughout a stressful time!

Lynn helped me deal with a situation that had gotten out of hand in the moment, and had the potential to really mess with my future. She was compassionate, calming, and I knew instantly that whatever she told me, I could trust her. She and her whole firm are really wonderful.
