Great lawyer, better man!
"I was in a DUI related accident in small mountain county.  A small child had a minor bump on her head. She was in a child car seat, totally secure. I had only lived in CA for one week and I got caught in an unexpected snow storm and I did not have a 4-wheel-drive vehicle. I had and accident, knocked over a telephone pole, minor bump on the child's head. The CHP and the prosecutor charged me with felony child endangerment under the CA Penal Code and felony DUI under the CA Vehicle Code.  They wanted a long prison sentence.   Mark fought my case for over a year. He hired an expert to show that my blood level was much lower and the time of the accident. He also hired an accident/engineer and Mark subpoenaed the accident history for that road and there were other accidents DUI/Not DUI in that same area. Mark was able to get the felony child endangerment totally dismissed and then the felony DUI reduced to a misdemeanor injury and finally he got it reduced to a regular, non injury DUI. Instead of prison and a one year or 3 year loss of license, I am in the process of getting work project and Mark also did our DMV hearing also and we may even win that.  Mark calmed me down in a very stressful situation and he cared about both myself and my passengers (fiance and child) equally.

Mark Sollitt is a life saviour
"Mark truly saved me" I was arrested in a high blood alcohol case in the mountains in the middle of a snow storm. The arresting officer really exaggerated what happened in my case. He wrote a very untruthful police report. That same arresting officer was not able to testify in my trial. The prosecutor attempted to proved the case with another officer testifying as to what happened, but Mark files a motion to prevent this and the prosecutor was forced to dismiss the entire case. Mark fought the DMV for two years and same thing, the DMV tried to prove the case without the main officer and they also tried to get me on a refusal which was a totally false allegation and I would have lost my license for a year. Mark did and won the DMV hearing also, so no court case, no DMV suspension and I consider Mark to be a personal friend of mine. I have serious health issues and Mark was very caring about my situation, fought very hard for me and was a friend. If your ever in need of a solid person who will do the right thing by you. This is the guy you want on your side.

Mark Sollitt is a saint
My case was unjust, and he saw that. He had 100% trust in my side of the story, compared to what the police report said. He proved the accident wasn't my fault, and fought the DUI felony they were trying to charge me to a first offense DUI, with just a few days work project. Thank you Mark, I don't belong in jail, and I could of been in there if it wasn't for you. Not just a damn good lawyer, a friend too.

Best lawyer in elk grove
I met with him the same day for a consultation for a dui charge and a license suspension, and he explained to me my situation and what he could do for me, I met with him only twice and he got me my license back without a suspension on my record as well as my dui waived. I couldn't have gone with a better lawyer for my case and If not for him my driving record would have been in disarray.

Mark sollitt helped me
My name is Lonnie. I have a pretty extensive history years ago. I was recently in a hit and run/ reckless driving accident. The da refused to bargain with me. I hired Mark, and after SEVERAL court dates, he managed to get one of the serious charges dropped, and the exact plea deal I was hoping for. He saved my.job, and my liscense. I couldn't thank him for better representation. I will refer him to everyone!

My son was charged with three felony counts, and Mr. Sollitt succeeded in having two counts dropped and the third reduced to a misdemeanor with time served and three years informal probation. Mr. Sollitt was very empathetic and communicated throughout the process. Both my son and I are eternally grateful for the attention he gave and would recommend him without reservation.

Thank you Mr. Sollitt
I recently had a second DUI and knew I was looking at jail time. I had a high BAC and with a second offense I thought jail was my only option. When I hired Mark Sollitt I was pretty much down in the dumps. Mr. Sollitt from the beginning was honest and caring. He and his legal secretary were professional and honest. Mr Sollitt kept me out of jail and I received 30 days work probject. I live in Placer County where I have heard that they are extremely tough on DUI convictions. I would whole heartedly contact Mr. Sollitt if you find yourself in a similar situation. I still have contact with him as he cares about my well -being..

I needed a lawyer and didn't know anyone. I did some research on the internet. I found Mark Sollitt. I spoke with Mark about my case and decided to hire him. Mark explained what would happen and how we were going to proceed. His defense at the DMV was remarkable. The DMV dismissed my case. He also had my case dismissed with court. I am so blessed to have Mark Sollitt ad my lawyer. I can not thank him enough.

Reliable Attorney
My grandson and I went to Mark because of the wonderful reviews from past clients.. My Grandson was charged with a DUI and facing a year in prison. Mark was able to get his sentence reduced to no jail time, no refusal allegations and the suspended license issue went away. His fee was reasonable and we are thankful for the results. Thank you Mark.

Extraordinary Attorney
I have known Attorney Mark Sollitt for approx. 25 years. At that time, I had used his services as a Real Estate Broker to buy my first home. I found him to be a professional who was honest, reliable, and knowledgeable with great social skills making my home buying process smooth, quick and easy. Now 25 years later and in need of a DUI attorney for my daughter on a third DUI and child endangerment charges, I didn't hesitate to call on Mark Sollitt who has been a respectable attorney for the past 22 years. My experience with him proves he is a man with determination and one who keeps his word. I am forever grateful that he eagerly took on the case at a last moments notice with court set for the following day. He assured me he would get my daughter released and he did after he got the case transferred to Stockton within the weekend where my daughter would have more options then just jail time. I was able to see how he aggressively worked his relationships before the court hearing and in the courtroom involving both my daughter's and my input to obtain the best legal outcome for my daughter given her circumstances. He took the time to help us both understand what happened in the court hearing and the process my daughter would have ahead of her. He was able to get her released that day on an ankle monitor, obtain rehabilitation services, and drop some charges especially the one on child endangerment. I couldn't have chosen a better attorney for my daughter than Mark Sollitt. He is someone who I continue to find trustworthy, reliable, knowledgeable and with determination to fight for what is right using his expertise in navigating the court system. To anyone, I wholeheartedly and strongly recommend Mark Sollitt as your attorney.

A seriously hard-working pro
I am subject expert who Mark called in to consult on several of his cases. Due to schedule constraints, Mark met me early (very early) on the morning of our first case together to formulate strategy. I quickly discovered that he is a straight shooter, no-nonsense kind of a guy; traits I truly appreciate in a criminal defense attorney. I found it a pleasure to work with him.

DUI? HIRE MARK SOLLITT
I experienced nothing but the best service from the law office of Mark Sollitt. From start to finish the processes was seamless. Without a doubt a DUI is an extremely stressful situation to be in; however, I felt assured by the confidence in my attorney. Knowing that I was not going through this alone I could rest a little easier and continue my day to day life, all thanks to the support I received from my attorney and his office. I put my trust in Mark Sollitt and recommend you do the same.

Great Lawyer
Mark was a great lawyer and won my DUI case a while back. He was professional and supplemented the necessary professional witness to help me with my case. We reviewed my case together and during the trial we communicated well. We went over what to say when I was on the stand. I recommend him to anybody who has a difficult case.

best DUI Lawer in Sacramento area!
Before we hired Mark, I was calling different lawyers because the public defender was on the side of the DA and was convincing us to take a plea bargain, telling us that with my husbands prior 2 DUIs, colorful past and hit and run in this case, it was impossible to win this case. But I was a stay at home mother with 2 little kids who solely relied on my husbands income. For him going to jail meant I could end up in the streets before I find a job that could pay enough for expensive day care and a place to live! He stood out from other lawyers on the phone with his eagerness to help and meet up with us the next day! On the meeting he already had a police report and was giving us hope because he found loop holes in the police report. This guy knows what he is doing. He didn't give us 100% win but told us there are very good chances. The only way to win this case was through trial and he had good experience with trials. most lawyers don't want to go to trial and don't have a lot of experience. my husband was looking at 4 years in jail, so we decided to try and go for it. Not only did we win the trial but he also helped us to deal with people that was suing us for damages on the car for ridicules amount of $!!! He guided us on every little detail and traine my husband from how to sit, what to wear, how to look and act as if he has a phycology degree! He also came out to a seen and went over every little details that u would think do not matter... It took only few hours for Juries to decide on the case and usually this means a bad thing, but in this case it was the opposite! It was the most stressful time for us and he was there all the way, always available on the phone, e-mails and text messages for a very busy guy! He also, helped my husband get his license back from DMV and I believe saved my marriage! I'm very great full to him and the amount of work he put in. It was not cheap for us with one income, but worth every penny for the amount of time he spend and what he has done for us!

Best lawyer for DUI
I got DUI in April 2015. Hired Mark Solitt after a lot of research. The DA refused to give any kind of plea deal. I decided to go trial. Mark was determined to win my trial from day one. He was very well prepared during the whole trial which went for 11 days and Mark was able to get a hung jury and case was dismissed. He is a very well versed lawyer and a great person. I cant be happier for my decision to hire him.
