I could not have asked for a more positive outcome, given the circumstances. Mr. Drewry was diligent for over a year--to help reduce my case from a very high BAC DUI (more than double the legal limit) to a wet and reckless. He was able to get reduced fines and reduced time with a DUI program. When I first went to his office last year, I was mortified by the situation that I had placed myself in. Not only did I get into an accident with a large street light, I totaled by new car and I was arrested. I had never been in an accident or arrested, so I came out of the police station terrified,stunned and I had no idea on what to do. When I came to Mr. Drewry I was also apprehensive because it was a large fee to pay for something that I was sure I wouldn't be able to fight. After the consultation, I decided to retain Mr. Drewry, and I am so happy that I did. Since the process was so long, and I did not have much information, I was nervous. In the end I was nervous for no reason. When it came to the close of the case, Mr. Drewry explained everything to me in detail and with examples. Mr.Drewry gave me options, and let me choose how to proceed. He is extremely professional, and gets results. I would highly recommend him to anyone that finds themselves in the same situation I did. If you retain Mr. Drewry you can trust he's doing everything he can even if theres not constant communication.

Long story short, I get charged with a DUI due to my stupid mistake. I though my life is toasted before meeting Mr. Drewry.
His professionalism in the court room and the sense of humor totally knock off all of my anxiety. At the end, my case gets reduced to an infraction ticket with no criminal record. It is all credit to Mr. Drewry.
To all of you who are looking for an attorney for your DUI case, stop here and talk to Mr. Drewry, he is the right person to look for.
At last, lesson learned, and I truly thank Mr. Drewry helped me out.

In my opinion, Donald G. Drewry is the best DUI criminal defense attorney in California! I have been a client of Donald's since 2011. I am also an attorney, but I do not practice criminal law. In 2011, after much research and consideration, I hired Donald for my 2nd DUI. I pled 'no contest' and, through his skill and intimate knowledge of the criminal justice system, I received only 30 days of house arrest (in addition to the standard fines and DUI classes). I was arrested again in 2014 for a DUI. This would have been my 3rd DUI. I immediately hired Donald.
Donald's professionalism and client service are second to none. His office answered all of my questions and kept me informed throughout the entire process. My DMV hearing on this 3rd DUI took place in July 2015. Much to my delight, Donald WON MY DMV HEARING, arguing that there was insufficient evidence. As a result, I kept my license with no restrictions! My first appearance for my DUI case was also in July 2015, at which time I was fitted with a SCRAM alcohol ankle monitor. My court date was set for October 2015.
After informing me of his plan to fight the DUI, with which I concurred, in October Donald filed a Motion to Suppress Evidence. The motion hearing took place recently. At the hearing, Donald argued that the evidence obtained was pursuant to an unlawful stop, i.e. that the officer lacked probable cause, and the Judge agreed.
As a result of filing that motion, the prosecution right then and there at the hearing DISMISSED ALL CHARGES against me, which included the DUI and a probation violation!!! To say I was elated is putting it mildly. I am still, even now as I write this, somewhat in shock at the result. I left the courthouse with my dismissal paperwork and walked to the Sheriff's department where my Probation Officer, to whom I had been reporting twice a week for 6 months to have my SCRAM monitor read, removed my monitor.
I am so incredibly grateful that I chose to hire Donald as my attorney. I would (and have) recommend him to anyone who is facing a DUI charge. His flat-fee is very reasonable. His office is exceptional with client contact and kept me thoroughly informed. I now have over a year in recovery, and finally with this behind me, feel that I can move forward. I can't say enough good things about my experience of having Donald as my attorney. Although the facts of each person's case are different, if you hire Donald Drewry he will work diligently to achieve the best result possible for your DUI case, as he did for me - twice! THANK YOU AGAIN DONALD!!!
