I specialize in BLOOD DRAW DUI CASES.  I am one(1) of only two (2) lawyers in all of Northern California that use 21st Integration technology in defending against the Government's blood analysis.  Most lawyers still retest the blood, and that actually helps the Prosecutor convict you.  What is needed is the Special INTEGRATION SOFTWARE that allows you to see ALL THE CONTAMINATION THE GOVERNMENT IS HIDING.  There are two (2) main types or Blood testing machines call Gas Chromatographs.  One is PERKIN ELMER, and the other is AGILENT.  I have both INTEGRATIONS. Whenever you speak to a lawyer about your Blood DUI Case, make sure to aks them if they have the special INTEGRATION SOFTWARE.  If they do not, you are helping the PROSECUTION CONVICT YOU.

Iwas born in Oakland, California, grew up playing around Lake Merit.  I joined orignial Roller Derby in 1960, and my fist job was with Bay Bombers as skate-boy, Charlie O'Connell coach, in 1962.  Was trained by Bombers as score-keeper, building of tracks, publicity, and became an in-house announcer in1965 at age 16.   I did radio game results with Wolfman Jack when I became the New York Chiefs syndicated television announcer in 1972 at Madison Square Garden at New York, and then back with the Bay Bombers in 1977 and 78.  During this time period, I also became a truck driver for the league moving the track from city to city and state to state for each game. 

    My career was interrupted in August of 1967 through April 1969 when I was drafted into the Vietnam war.  I was promoted to SGT, Specialist E-5 Non-commissioned officer in 18 months and received an Honorable Discharge.  When the Roller Derby closed, I worked as a courier by day and went to night school to complete my high school education, college and law school.  The entire process took 13 years of  night school.  During this time, I also worked as a Reserve Police Officer, in a solo capacity for a little over 3 years.  I have also worked as a bartender in local clubs in San Leandro, CA. 

    I enjoy roller skating, but have a broken ankle with a plate in it that prevents me from skating these days.  My favorite time is body surfing in Hawaii and long walks in the hills with my dog KC everyday.  This time with KC gives me a chance to get some exercise, relax, and think of defenses for my clients without interruptiton.

    I became a criminal defense lawyer because I saw how abusive the judicial system is to people who have little to no money, and coming from a family where my mother supported 2 sons after the death of my father without insurance, and watching her struggle, I wanted to be able to help people get a fair shot in the system, and I do so by keeping my fees geared for the blue collar worker. 

  I am greatly assisted by Araceli the officer manager and her sister Olympia who works part-time learning the legal business and going to school to become a lawyer.  Clients who use our firm always comment on the help they receive from Araceli.  Araceli's photo is featured at the top of this area.  Additionally, Araceli helped me develop a special program for lawyers in selecting a jury called Grand Voir Dire.  I also developed a special video for lawyers in trial with GERD cases that is used across the United States in trial.

One of the Best!
If you are in need of a top notch seasoned attorney, I highly recommend Mr. Donald Drewry, ATL. I was in a tight spot with a court-ordered violation of summary probation recently. With a little luck, and Mr Drewery's experience and expertise, the case was dismissed. If I could rate this man's ability in the courtroom any higher than 5 stars, I would in a heartbeat.

Great representation
He tells you like it is, and helped me through my case every step of the way. He laid out all my options and we went from there. Updates were thorough and my outcome was better than I expected. He's one of a few lawyers who has The means to examine your blood. Very professional.

A lifesaver!
A little more than a year ago I blew a 0.11 at a police stop. I spent the night in jail and over the next few days following my release I consulted a few lawyers before picking Attorney Drewry. My decision was based on price and advice I got from him during the consultation. He gave me the impression that he'd fight for me. And boy was I right! The court sentence happened 3 months later and he was able to get me a wet reckless (instead of DUI) with 2 years probation; no other restrictions. As for the DMV and license suspension that should have happened, he managed to get me out of that altogether!!! No license suspension! All the other lawyers I've talked to said the license suspension was pretty much a done deal and nothing could be done with it. From the get go Donald said he'll fight for me to keep my license and he did! Thank you so much!!!

One of the best, if not the best.
Mr. Drewry is the epitome of a defense lawyer. Allying experience with dedication, integrity with decency, Mr. Drewry's expertise in the technical aspects of DUI is unmatched. He is able to pinpoint the flaws of breath analyzer testing and challenge the accuracy of those tests. His engaging personality, dignified bearing, and articulate explanations hold any audience in awe, to the benefit of his client. Last for certainly not least, his fees are very reasonable. Mr. Drewry personifies the old school ethics, when a man's words and deeds force the respect of all who deal with him. I was involved in a case where Mr Drewry defended a 3rd time DUI offender facing 1 year in county jail. Mr. Drewry mapped out a strategy that avoided jail time for the hapless (and careless) defendant and kept his penalties to a bearable level, while making sure that the defendant understands the seriousness of his situation and makes every effort to avoid a repeat (4th time will be a felony!). It is not every day that you can find such a lawyer to keep you from getting crushed by the long and often merciless arm of the law.

GREAT LAWYER
I got charged and arrested for DUI. So I hired Donald Drewry because he had very good reviews online. He didn’t promise me anything but assured me that he will do his best and he did exactly as he said. He worked so hard on my case. He didn’t waste my time at all but informed me about the case at every single step through mails.He had been through all the evidences against me thoroughly. He filed couple of DUI motions and negotiated with DA to reduce my DUI charge to Dry reckless while is unbelievable for me. I am very happy about the outcome. He did much more than my expectations. I will be thankful to him for rest of my life. Thanks Mr. Drewry

The best of the best!
I had fallen asleep in my car after quick stop at a friends bar. When CHP showed up, I blew a .14 BAC and the blood test showed .17! After a lengthy back and forth with the court regarding lab protocols and mistakes by the DA, Mr. Drewery was able to get the charges reduced from a full DUI to a wet/reckless. In the end, I payed half of what the expected fines would have been and saved me from jail time too!! Mr. Drewery went out of his way to make sure I stayed on course with school and paying the fines. If you've been arrested for a DUI, you need Mr. Drewery!

3rd DUI/Hit and run
I got arrested for a third DUI sometime last March. I saw no hope and thought I would for sure be sent to jail for at least a year. This was my third offense WITH a refusal, my blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit, and I also hit two vehicles and then allegedly fled the scene. I knew I needed a lawyer ASAP. That's when a friend of mine referred me to Mr.Drewry. I met with him and hired him that same day.... and thank god for that. He truly is an amazing lawyer. Although there was no escaping some sort of punishment, he was able to fight on my behalf and get me only 5 weekends in county along with an ankle monitor for 4 months. I couldn't have asked for a better deal. Mr.Drewry was very knowledgeable on what programs appealed to the court and he guided me every step of the way. I did everything he asked of me and got amazing results. I would definitely recommend hiring him as an attorney if you are in need of one!

Impressed and Relieved
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.

DUI charge get reduced
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.

3rd DUI TOTALLY DISMISSED!!! DMV hearing won!
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!!!

Excellent DUI lawyer
I was charged with my second DUI and I am so glad I found Mr. Drewry because I was not completely satisfied with my representation last time around. My girlfriend and I searched the internet and were both struck by all the totally positive reviews of his services. I contacted his office on a Friday and was able to meet with him after work early Monday evening. I felt comfortable the moment I walked into his office and was greeted warmly by Olympia, the office manager. We spent over an hour reviewing my case and he never made me feel rushed. His approach is straight forward and no nonsense. He treats you like an adult and tells you exactly what to expect every step of the way. He has a ton of experience and I felt completely confident in his ability to bring about the best possible outcome. And the day of my court appearance he proved me right. Thinking quickly and acting decisively, Mr. Drewry was able to deliver a plea deal that kept me out of jail even though I was still on probation from my previous DUI. Put simply, the outcome exceeded my expectations in every way. In a couple of weeks he will be representing me at the DMV hearing in Oakland and I'm sure his skills will again serve me well. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Drewry if you find yourself in similar circumstances.

Thank you Mr. Drewry
I can not thank Mr. Drewry enough for his help. To get to the point, he was able to get my DUI charge dropped to a Wet and Reckless. So if you need a Great DUI Lawyer - he is your guy! Worth every penny. Now let me tell you about my experience. As you can image I was beyond scared, ashamed and broken when I got my DUI. I didn't know what to do or what would happen. What I did know is that if I had any fighting chance I needed a good lawyer. So I did some research and talked to about 4 different DUI lawyers (including Mr. Drewry). Now this may sound crazy but I choose Mr. Drewry because he was the most honest lawyer I talked to. He did not tell me everything was going to be ok (like some other lawyers did), or that he can guarantee a win. He was straight forward and STERN, no BS. That's when I said this is the one for me. If he can be like this with a potential client...he will be the same way in court fighting for me. So I hired him in Sept 2012. Flash forward to Dec 2014 - case FINALLY done and lowered to a Wet and Reckless (I blew a .11). Sure I would have hoped for my case to be resolved sooner but on the positive side I think it lessened the impact a DUI can have on your life. I was still able to drive for MOST of the two years I went through this ordeal. I didn't win my DMV hearing, so my license did finally get suspended in May 2014 but I was able to get a restricted license for work...so not too horrible. Most important to me, I DID NOT have to get an ignition lock on my car. I owe that all to Mr. Drewry since he was able to drop the charges to a Wet and Reckless. So if you need a good lawyer, I cannot recommend him enough. He will do his best to get you the best outcome and keep you informed with letters on any changes or court dates. Thank you Mr. Drewry!!!!

Simply the best
I was charged with my third DUI and I knew I had to get an lawyer that had the knowledge and the background dealing with DUI cases. I did my research and came across Mr. Drewery. I contacted his business via his website and he personally responded to me that day on a weekend. He was ready for the fight even before he received all the details. Upon meeting him he always kept it honest and real. He didn't sugar coat anything and laid out every possible outcome. His office was very informative anytime I called with questions. Although this was my third dui I did not do any jail time and that was thanks to Mr. Drewery and his staff. I do not know where I would be right now without him.

A Life Saver!
Two years ago I was pulled over for what i thought would be a speeding ticket, but ended up with a DUI (supposedly I blew a .13, but I still don't believe it!), and had the pleasure of spending a "luxurious" night in the Oakland City (Spa) Jail. For the record, I have NEVER been involved with breaking any laws, save for the occasional speeding and/or parking ticket, which I have always admitted to, so this event was a real shocker! I've never had a need for a lawyer, and being relatively new to California, I was confused by the system (also extremely annoyed by the CHP Officers who pulled me over - unprofessional jerks!). I realized quickly that i would need to get a lawyer, but finding one who didn't come off as a used car salesman seemed unlikely. However, in my research I stumbled upon Mr Drewry's website. It was straight forward, informative, and he seemed like he was not going to bullshit me like many other lawyers I had spoken to, so I gave him a call. Mr. Drewry is not for the feint of heart – he is a very blunt man, who does not sugar coat a thing! Basically he let's you know what the law regarding DUIs entail, and how it can, and will, detrimentally ruin your life, especially if you try to go it alone. Personally, I appreciate the blunt approach, so was reassured that he knew what he was doing. It has taken over two years to go through this process, but I was informed at every step, and some how, Mr. Drewry managed to get my charges dropped! It seems a miracle that it's finally over, but it is. It's a huge relief to be able to move on. Thank you Mr. Drewry! You are a wise man. P.S. I have learned my lesson well: I absolutely DO NOT drink and drive, even if it is a few beers as it was that night.

Helpful and trustworthy
Third DUI but was kept from doing any jail time. Mr Drewry is very straightforward and basically, 'no BS' attitude. Grateful that he can help me with my case and definitely would recommend him if you're in need of a good DUI lawyer.

This is the only person you will want or need by your side!!!!!
I can not say enough about Mr. Drewry, his knowledge, expertise, determination to see a case through, honesty, and being a all around good guy. I was not sure how this was going to turn out for me but Mr. Drewry laid out all the facts, never sugar coated anything, armed me with all the information I needed to come to a decision and once I made that choice was always in my corner leading the fight. Once I gave him and his staff the green light to take my case to trial there was never any let up on the effort to win my case. Due to numerous delays which were not all our fault my case took almost 3 yrs to come to trial and Mr. Drewry had the same amount of energy from day one which was 100 percent. The outcome of my DMV case was most favourable and I never lost my license or a day of driving all thanks to Mr. Drewry. In my criminal case I ended up with a dry reckless and again without Mr. Drewry I hate to think what it would of been otherwise. The one thing I did not expect to get out of this was a very good understanding of our court system as Mr. Drewry always kept me well informed as to the status and the happenings in my case. Mr Drewry is fair, honest, hard working and as far as his fees is reasonably price.

Don Drewry is THE attorney for DUI cases
Don Drewry was an AMAZING help with my DUI case. I knew he had a great track record with his cases but he definitely went above and beyond to help me out and get me in the best situation possible. I was expecting the worst in every way and he handled everything incredibly well and was very clear in what was going on so I had no confusion. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone going through a DUI case. Can't thank him enough!

Excellent Lawyer
What made me choose him to represent me was that he took more than an hour during the first consultation because he wanted to make sure that I understand the trouble I was in and the process it was going to take. Mr. Drewry is very knowledgeable and very helpful. He answered all the questions I had and explained it in the way I can comprehend it completely. Even after the case was over, he is still available for any questions I have, which I deeply appreciate.

Best Lawyer in CA
My case lasted almost 2 years. I was being charged with a first time DUI at high B.A.C. levels of .18/.19 and having increased speed in the process. All evidence was stacked against me and I knew that I needed an experienced attorney to handle my case. After a google search I came across Donald Drewry's law office and read countless reviews speaking of his high character, professionalism, and personality which made me feel that he was the right person for the job. Not to mention his off the charts results and track record. He doesn't make any promises, but seems to always come through somehow. Throughout the whole process he and his assistant Olympia kept me well informed on the status of my case via phone and mail. They even found a way to grant extensions with the DMV during my entire appeals process which allowed me to continue driving. Donald takes every case very seriously and genuinely cares about his clients. He could easily charge a whole lot more than his standard rates ($2500 flat fee in most cases), but tries to be as fair to the customer as possible. He's too fair to us if you ask me. Walking into court with Donald by your side gives you a sense of confidence because he's that way. Seeing the other lawyers in court today I can tell you that Donald Drewry was hands down the best attorney in that courtroom. I'm willing to say he's even the best in all of CA. He worked miracles in my case and gave me the best outcome possible. Words cannot express the gratitude I have to Donald, Olympia, and the rest of their legal team for going to bat and fighting for me like they did. They went above and beyond their call of duty to work out a deal that would satisfy me, which they vastly exceeded my expectations. You will not regret hiring their services. He saved me thousands of dollars in fines, community work, and I was able to keep my job. Donald and Olympia are great people who will do everything in their power to help you through this difficult time in your life. If I hear of anyone in a similar type situation Donald Drewry's law team will get the referral every time. Thanks again for everything!

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I cannot say enough positive things about Mr. Drewry. Before I was an attorney, I was a young kid wandering down the hall from my mom's office to listen to him explain difficult legal issues to his colleagues. He saw the spark of interest and would tell me about his views of the justice system. Aside from my own mom, he was one of the major inspirations I had for becoming an attorney. He also helped me get my start when I first opened my practice, giving me cases to work on and teaching me the finer points of defense practice as I went along. The passion Mr. Drewry has for defending his clients is apparent just from speaking to him. He pushes legal issues on appeal and gets the very fabric of the law altered, and it is his hard work that creates some of the great results you see other attorneys getting. He deserves greater accolades than I could give from my vantage point of looking upward. I endorse this lawyer, and I am grateful this lawyer is a part of our defense community."

"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Don for approximately 10 years and he is one of the best attorneys available in the Bay Area. Don taught the entire DUI community about how to defend cases where the driver suffered from GERD and took a breath test. He enlightened us on why the breath test results would be inaccurate. Additionally, he trained me in methods of cross examination that I have found invaluable. I have also enjoyed many of his seminars where he has trained other DUI lawyers to hone their skills. Don has a proven trial track record of victories and vigorously defends his clients at every level. I highly recommend Don Drewry."
