    I was facing allot of problems with my case and Mr. VanDevoort and I were able to sit and talk about the best way to resolve it. We probably did not always agree 100% on the route to go but in the end all was explained and we did choose the right one. He is very easy to work with and will always have your best interest in mind. His results were very satisfying. If you are in need of a lawyer I would recommend him 100%.

    First, thank you to Dawn, Joe's always attentive and considerate office manager that I spoke to at least a hundred times! Dawn kept me sane at times when Mr. Vandervoort was unavailable and really helped me out with the whole legal process during my case. She went above and beyond what I expected and for that I say THANK YOU DAWN!!! As for Mr Vandervoort it was an education process from the get go! I believe when anyone hires a lawyer that they believe they have a chance at getting a fair deal out of it and I was no different. It has nothing to do with the fact that you hire this person to represent you in a manner that far exceeds what a Public Defender can or even will do for you but goes into the realm of above and beyond your expectations. This was the first time I have ever felt the need to hire an attorney and I must admit it was an overwhelming experience. I knew I was in over my head and I just had this gut feeling that getting a professional would be the way to go. I was so right! My initial visit was started on time, was not rushed one bit and I felt properly informed/prepared for what was to come. I thought for sure the first thing that was going to be discussed was PAYMENT. I was WRONG! That was the last thing we discussed and for that amongst many reasons are why I hired Mr. Vandervoort and his associates to handle my complicated case. My case had many, many, MANY different twists and turns but not once did I ever feel that I was not being represented properly. Mr. Vandervoort set my mind at ease during a very stressful period in my life. Not only did I lose a very close family member in the months before I walked into Mr. Vandervoorts' office but I was also relocating to a different area for a major medical operation that put me in the dirt in a major way. I thought I was screwed for sure because of being on so much medication and just being plain out of it. I couldn't have been more wrong. Not only did Mr. Vandervoort, his associates and Dawn help guide me along with filing new motions to help me extend my trial so I could be coherent during the whole time but it was all done from about 250 miles away....and I felt great about it. This was not something I just threw money at and said, "take care of it." No. This was something that required my full attention to the best of my ability and together we achieved the best possible outcome. Now, I don't know about anyone else but handling a case in person is stressful enough but via telephone, email, fax and text messages? That is a whole different ball game but they nailed it for me and I couldn't be happier with my experience. In closing I would just like to say that if you find yourself in a compromising position and need the assistance of professional, courteous and prompt attorney then you should look no further than Joe Vandervoort! Thank you!

    John Joseph VanDervoort’s response: “my "legal name" ( so to speak ) is John Joseph VanDervoort so I am known by AVVO as John and everyone else as Joe. Dawn has been a legal secretary more than 35 years and knows more than most attorneys and she delights in helping clients and others. THANK you for the thoughtful review of Dawn and our office.”

    When I was picked up one night by CHP, I thought my life as I knew it was over. My wife all but disowned me. I had many, many people in my life to explain the situation to. My circumstances were I was off the freeway, outside my vehicle, and CHP never saw me driving. But as I found out later, these circumstances still can get you for DUI. I did not know where to turn or what to do next.
    I found this law office on the internet. I wound up meeting with Geoff Dulebohn from this law office. He was able to guide me through the whole process and answer my questions along the way.
    If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, I would not hesitate to call upon this office to get you through.

    Joe is very knowledgeable about defense pertaining to CA DUI law and procedures. He has a good working relationship with the courts which aids in favorable defense and satisfactory results. If you want the "mercedes" of DUI defense Joe is the attorney to call.
    His staff is knowledgeable about court and DMV procedures. They are very patient and courteous with your questions.

    Joe and staff did an overall fantastic job of representing me and getting me through the process and system! Considering my circumstances, I thought I was going to be toast, but with Joe, it wasn't so. He and staff kept, and continue to keep, me well informed of what's going on. I feel very comfortable and secure with the VanDervoort Law Office, and highly recommend them to any and everyone in need of legal representation or advice. I also found Joe's website to be extremely informative and enlightening. Make a lunch, pull up a chair, and read the entire thing; you will gain a great deal of knowledge from it.

    The law offices of Joe Vandervoort recently represented me in a misdemeanor DUI alcohol and prescription drugs. Mr Vandervoort examined the record and and decided he could help. He certainly did in negotiating to have all charges modified to eliminate all driving charges with a no contest plea for a lesser non-driving related charge ... no jail, no probation, no loss of license or license restriction and a small fine, considering what it might have been.

    No attorney does the whole job of processing a case. Mr. Vandervoort's staff was always helpful, pleasant and professional. I always felt exceptionally comfortable and confident I was getting the best legal representation during the entire process.

    VanDervoort was upfront about everything that was happening in my case. I was kept welll informed the entire time, absolutley no surprises. Since I was a full-time student (21.0 units) he even gave me a discount from $5,000 to $3,500, which was quite generous of him. Since he knows so many people in the legal community he was also able to get me out of jail time. He's well known and respected throughout the legal/court system in Butte county.

    Mr. VanDervoort is a true professional. He was quick and decisive in dealing with my DUI. I felt that he keep me very informed throughout the DMV and court process. Whether it be by phone or correspondence.
    I chose to represent myself on a serperate simple restitution hearing. I failed to appear at my hearing because of a personel matter. Mr. Vandervoort reconiized that I was not responding to my name being called in court and stood up to represent me. This saved me from having some serious legal repercussions. I'm am truly grateful.

    John Joseph VanDervoort’s response: “We represent out clients in EVERY stage of the proceedings. I represented Anthony even though he was not a client because I knew he would lose and a warrant might go out for his arrest. No other lawyer nor the judge were going to help and the prosecutor certainly would not so I stood up and said I would represent him. I never sent him a bill. We handle ALL aspects of Dui cases: Criminal, DMV/licensing, restitution as in this case, insurance, criminal defense, professional license consequences, probation and violations of Probation. sentencing alternatives,rehabilitation and AA etc IF needed by the client”
