Best damn lawyer around!
I am a normal person, I am no being paid to review Tim, I am just a client who he helped tremendously. I did my research, I also talked to others who went through the process, and others who hired different lawyers, and Tim is always the best. Tim may be busy but he always gets back to you quickly, especially when it comes to lawyers. His crew is amazing and is always around to help with any problems or questions. Not only is he professional, Tim is also very helpful when you have things you don't understand or any concerns, he truly makes the dark cloud of court a lot easier. Its been a month since my last court date and I am still very grateful I chose Tim. So if your a normal person, who made a mistake, please please please CALL TIM PRENTISS! You won't regret it.

Shasta County's DUI Guy
Timothy Prentiss is the top DUI attorney in Shasta County. Awhile back my boyfriend was charged with a DUI. This guy worked his magic and got the charge dropped to a wet and reckless. We went through his office again last year when I was facing a DUI charge that happened out of the area. Mr. Prentiss has many connections in other counties and was able to work with the DA's office and even made a couple court appearances for me. He took great care of me and made sure I was aware of what was going on. This is the guy you want in your corner. He's not afraid to go to trial and gets the job done without compromise. Hopefully I don't need another attorney in the future. I know who to call if i do.

Professional with Precision
The folks at Prentiss Law are undoubtedly miracle workers. After spending countless hours trying to find an attorney for my case, I found Mr. Prentiss and was able to quickly work out a payment plan out. Due to lack of funds, none of the other lawyers I met with wanted to touch the case. Not only we were able to work out a deal, his team worked tirelessly with other parties involved to fight for my rights. I am forever grateful.

The Fast and the Fearless
Last year, I faced charges that had the potential to tear my family, job, and life apart. I was referred to Mr. Prentiss by a family friend and was able to set up a meeting with him by the next day. Mr. Prentiss and his team listened, got the facts, and initiated a process that resulted in a dismissal of charges before going to trial. Thank-you to Mr. Prentiss and your team!

Innocent Client
I retained Mr. Prentiss, I would to NOT recommend him to anyone. Any attorney can get other attorneys to write great reviews for them on this site. I hired him and I regret every penny I paid him.
Response from Timothy Prentiss July 18, 2017
I take my responsibilities to my clients very seriously. It is concerning that one of my former clients may be so displeased with my representation. Because the reviewer hasn't identified himself or herself, it isn't possible to respond directly, but I am very interested in addressing these issues with the client.
