James Egan made me confident in a good result and I got one. I was in an accident after drinking one night, thinking I was OK to drive. Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt but I was still over the limit and a little dejected about my situation and its prognosis. During my consultation with James Egan , I knew it was the right move to get him behind my case. As I was accepting that I wouldn't be driving for a long while, James Egan got the DOL to un-suspend my license and I've been driving ever since (not drinking, of course). The process with James couldn't have been any more easy. Getting a misdemeanor and slap on the wrist with a NEG 1 (only a small fine, I think $500) was the best I could ask for. I highly recommend James Egan for anyone, as he really provides the confidence and understanding that will help you get through a similar situation.

I was involved in an accident where a blood draw by the officer revealed a .15 BAC. I was looking at a license suspension plus at least 2 days in jail by the prosecutor’s first recommendation. I was confident in hiring James Egan’s team because of the extensive DUI defense experience of every single one of their four lawyers. Mr. Egan personally helped me avoid a DOL license suspension altogether. Then, on the criminal case after legal argument was filed, the prosecutor agreed to a Negligent Driving reduction without jail, a small fraction of fines, and obviously no license suspension. I got off essentially scott free! James Egan’s firm saved my life! If you made the mistake of DUI as I did, there is no mistake in hiring these DUI experts to fix it!

My facts could not have been worse. I had a second DUI offense in 7 years with a car accident and a .21 BAC level. Every other lawyer said I would probably do 45 days in jail if I didn’t go deferred. Mr. Egan’s legal team has decades of experience and they promised me a strong and recognized legal defense for my very serious charge. James Egan’s team identified a series of legal issues and filed motions for the criminal case, resulting in a major reduction to Negligent Driving without any jail time. They also beat the license suspension, which is clearly their forte. The outcome they got for me goes beyond words and is frankly jaw-dropping. They saved my life! I would highly recommend their extremely solid legal services to everyone charged with DUI. These guys are all legal geniuses!

I endorse this lawyer. James Egan is an excellent attorney. We had battled it out in a few trials close to 10 years ago when I was a prosecutor and he beat me every time. I have not won a trial against him to this day. And he has had acquittals on many other cases against other highly regarded attorneys which just goes to illustrate he is an attorney who really delivers great results for his clients. You can't go wrong with James Egan. He will fight hard for you. I recommend him without reservation.
