I had a reckless driving ticket with some other DUI complications. I found Byron on Yelp. He was quick to respond to my request for help. He gave me some idea of what to expect and the potential results. He knew his stuff. They were scary but not guaranteed. I didn't like the idea of going to jail for six months and that was looming over my head. He was able to get the charges and fines reduced and keep me out of jail. Putting Byron on my team was definitely a good decision. I recommend him highly!

I was pulled over for minor speeding and was hit with two other correctable offenses in the same stop (the officer was having a bad day). I hired Byron to defend me and he did an amazing job. He was courteous, knowledgeable, and organized. I call to check-in a few days before my court date and he was still aware of my situation and had all the facts straight. The other reviewers here are right and Byron surely deserves the 5-star rating. I would definitely recommend him to my friends or anyone else if you need legal help in NorCal.

Within minutes Byron returned my initial call to him, even on the weekend. Clearly he understood my situation and guided me toward the easiest and best outcome for me. He always, promptly kept me informed with honest updates and comments. He communicated the best possible for me, by email, text and phone. Byron always made me feel more comfortable after each contact. He knows the law and knows how to act in my favor. His experience as a former prosecutor contributes to his expertise as a great defense attorney.
I encourage you to consider all of the Yelp reviews and would highly recommend Mr. Roope for any issue. He is terrific! There are not enough stars to rate Byron what he deserves.

I was charged with some very serious felony charges. I knew I had gotten myself into trouble, but was scared of going to jail for a long long time. I contacted Mr. Roope after reading his good reviews and he was immediately able to help. He was very thoughtful and met with me many times as we worked through my case. In the end he was able to get one charge reduced to a misdemeanor and the other completely dismissed! I am very very happy to have found him and would continue to recommend him to anyone. Thanks Byron!

I met Byron through a friend of mine who works at the Roseville Chamber of Commerce, to which he is a long standing member. This verbal Roseville Chamber referral told me he was credible from the start.
The timeliness of his responses as well as the attentiveness in noting all the details of my case was also extremely impressive. He quickly gathered all information needed including paperwork, video, and any additional details.
Bryon explained options in terms that I could understand - which put me at ease right away. I knew “the plan.” He kept me updated on a regular basis, and was sure to tell me of any news that had come his way.
The court date was set very quickly, which told me Byron had immediately started working on my case – this was very comforting – I was reassured that he was on top of it. And because he is efficient, Byron was actually able to dismiss my ticket without even going to court!
What a life saver. I ditched the ticket but gained a new lawyer and friend who I know I can depend on. Byron will definitely be my lawyer going forward.
I would highly recommend Bryon Roope to anyone, working with him is a breeze. He is a genuinely nice guy. You would be mistaken for passing up the opportunity to hire him.

Listen, NEVER represent yourself in DUI cases. I can personally tell you that even the smartest and savy educated persons NEEDS and attorney when it comes to the quagmire of DUI court, DMV hearings, and outcome options. I HIGHLY reccomend Byron Roope to reperesent you in a DUI case. Not only did he fight hard for my case but he put maximum effort into getting me the best results possible. Byron literally saved me thousands of dollars and my career!

Finally, an attorney you can trust and who knows what he is doing!! I was in court floundering last week trying to decide between getting a PD or getting my own attorney and saw this guy argue the case in front of mine. I got his number and hired him on the spot. He listened to what I had to say (all of it), believed in me and explained what was going to happen next. He even set it up so that I didn't have to go to court in person (I was going to lose my job if I missed work again). He was able to get the charges reduced as well as the fines. He also appeared at DMV and was able to convince them to allow me to drive to and from work. I know from experience I only had 10 days to work with DMV and I also know from experience the PD will NOT represent you at DMV. Byron is a great guy and an excellent attorney. I hope I never need him again but if I do, I will call him first instead of second.

Byron represented me in a criminal case in Sacramento -- Byron was very good about returning my calls and knew the answers to all of my questions -- what would happen next -- what might happen if I didn't take a deal -- how could I best stay out of jail.... He worked with my bail bondsman and KNEW the DDA who had my case :):) (Apparently he used to work for the DA's Office). I hope I never need him again but if I do I would hire him! He was WELL worth the money.

I received my second DUI in Sacramento and hired a firm I thought would be able to handle my case because of their "experience" and "specializing" in this area of law. Instead my case was assigned to a brand new attorney at the firm who had no experience and missed court hearings and phone appointments. I tried to set up an appointment in the office and after several unreturned calls and only letting me talk to the attorney by phone, I decided it was time to look for a different attorney. I thought it may have been a mistake to even hire an attorney and should have handled this myself.
THEN, I was personally referred to Byron Roope and I couldn't have made a better decision. He made our appointments convenient for my schedule or even by phone if I couldn't make it into the office. He updated me on the status of my case even when things were only pending. He handled my case like I was his top priority and the best part of all he was able to personally appear at all of my hearings so I wouldn't have to miss work. He was worth every penny I paid to him and more. I will be referring many people to Byron Roope!

Very glad when our son's case was taken over by Byron!! The case was NOT going anywhere, and we were never kept up to date by the previous attorney. Constantly had to call to get any info!!
Byron, from the start, informed of us the status; his strategy; discussed options and his recommendations for what the best goal was to try to achieve for the case outcome. He did what he said he would do, AND called us to inform us of the progress and decissions that needed to be made.
Byron worked for the best overall outcome, AND achieved it!
THANK YOU Byron for your help, advisement and case closure!!!
