"It's part of my job to give over and above customer service, but who knew it would exist when hiring an attorney especially with an unusual DUI circumstance. Jake was sympathetic to my needs and explained all scenarios of my case upfront so that I understood. He kept me up-to-date with information. Best of all, we won! Simply put, Jake is the best." A.D., St Helena
"I appreciate all the time and effort you took on my behalf, I can't tell you how much it meant to me to have an expert such as yourself on MY side. You went way above and beyond and surpassed my expectations... I was saved the humiliation and embarrassment of going to court, and got my driving privilege restored almost immediately. I really appreciate that you were always available to answer my questions and really took the time to clearly explain the process and my options." P.R., Santa Rosa
"On New Year's Eve, my 22 year old son drank at a party and then foolishly drove his car. He was stopped by the Highway Patrol and he got a DUI. Thus began our journey into the unknown depths of legal proceedings, paperwork, deadlines, the court, judges, District Attorneys, the DMV, AA meetings a host of intimidating processes. Without Jake as our attorney, we would have been totally lost. Jake is a professional and he knows what he's doing. He successfully navigated all the obstacles for us. For a very reasonable fee, he met with us personally, kept in touch, reviewed our case, told us what to expect, and represented my son in court. All came out well in the end, and we have Jake to thank for it. The words above are sincere and heart felt. Thanks again, Jake, for all you did for us."
"Today is a bright and sunny day... now that I have my license back... without your experience and help I would not be on the road... your competent judgment and advice saved me unimaginable grief and anxiety and I do appreciate the "hand holding" you provided when I needed it most. You are communicative and have excellent "people" skills, qualities I consider essential in an attorney. I found your rates reasonable and your DMV experience irreplaceable. I learned a lesson I will never forget; when dealing with the DUI process and DMV one should always have a good attorney. You are the attorney I would most recommend in these cases."
"I was 3,000 miles from home and had no clue where to start after my arrest...I was scared and afraid that I would be forced to either stay in California or have to keep making trips back here. I found Jake's website and saw where he talked about my situation as an out-of-state resident. I then called Jake and he immediately put my greatest concerns to rest. He calmly and confidently explained how he could navigate me through the complex proceedings of a California DUI. I felt comfortable during that first call to hire Jake on the spot and put my trust in him even though I would never end up meeting him in person...He honored that trust and never let me down...Jake handled everything. In the end, I received the best outcome that we had hoped for. I am so grateful that I made that first call. If you are in this same situation, I urge you to call Jake. I would do it again and would recommend him to any family member or friend." R.H., Detroit
"Hi Jake, I would like to thank you and let you know that its great to have my life back because of what you were able to accomplish in my DUI case. The nightmare is over. Through yourself and your website it made the most difficult experience I have ever had in my life easily manageable. I thought that living in New York and having to deal with a DUI in California was going to cost me huge expenses and lots of personal time. I was really surprised that you (Jake) handled everything from the West coast. I was extremely happy with the outcome without ever making a trip back to California. I would recommend anyone in DUI trouble in Napa or Sonoma get in touch with you ASAP."
"Dear Jake, I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding, professional service you provided me during this arduous and difficult process. I greatly appreciate all the time, effort, and hard work that you put into the preparation of my case. In the end, I feel fortunate to have had you represent me, and because of you, I had the least possible consequences. It was a very stressful time and the process seemed difficult and long. However, you are an excellent attorney and I would definitely recommend your services to anyone in need of a competent, meticulous, diligent, and moreover you are an extremely patient and sensitive, attorney. I really cannot imagine going through this process without your counsel. Again, many, many thanks and warm regards."
G.B., Napa Client, Davis
"Having Jake as my attorney was a massive stress relief in a very difficult time. His knowledge of the process and thorough explanations of any questions I had allowed me to understand everything that was happening and what needed to be done. That understanding was key in settling the emotional roller-coaster that came with the experience coupled with the matrix of rules and regulations. He had the right solutions and he got me back on the road as quick as possible. Hopefully you never have to go through this, but if you do, Jake is who you want in your corner."
A.S., St. Helena
"After going through the shock of getting arrested and spending the night in jail, this first-time DUI offender was totally lost in what to do next. A friend of mine had heard of Jake, and it was the first and only call I made. He was extremely knowledgeable about my rights and what needed to be done next. He gave me options, ideas, and a timeline of what to do and when to do it. Jake saved me a lot of time and allowed me to put this behind me quicker than had I tried to navigate the maze of rules and regulations by myself. Trust the testimonials and allow Jake to put your unfortunate experience behind you."
"It is difficult to put into words, just how professional and efficient Jake has been throughout this process. He has not only proven to be expert at DUI law, he has shown he will go above and beyond the efforts of most attorneys, and it shows in the results! Jake has been both extremely patient and supportive and has treated me with respect, making a very challenging time a lot less difficult! He deserves the upmost regard and I would not hesitate to recommend him! Thank you Jake."
L.C., Rohnert Park
"Choosing Jake as my lawyer was one of the best decisions I have ever made!! Working full time and taking care of 2 kids by myself is overwhelming as it is and takes up all of my time; I didn't know how I would be able to deal with the stress, appointments, paperwork and most of all not driving. Jake took care of EVERYTHING and he kept me on the road!!! I could not be happier with Jake, his honesty integrity, communication and hard work go above and beyond the fee he charged. THANK YOU!!!!"
"I appreciate all of your help, especially with outlining the details so clearly... your assistance has been worth every penny."
J.L., Santa Rosa
"Jake, Thanks for all of your help. You have made this a smooth and organized process. While this event was a horrible situation for me, the phone call to you the morning after my DUI was the best thing that I could have done. While it has been a pleasure working with you on my case, please don't take offense when I say that I hope we never have to work together again." M.M., Petaluma
"From the exact moment I hired Jake, he began to take action. He assured me he had everything under control, and he did. He handled everything and kept me informed every step of the way. I never could have figured this stuff out on my own. In the end he came through with real results, getting me a wet reckless, only 18 months probation and pretty much the smallest fine possible. Jake is my hero!!! Don't worry anymore: hire Jake and he'll take care of you." M.C., Sebastopol
"I went on the Internet and searched "DUI lawyer Sonoma County" and found Jake's website. I was impressed by how much information and advice it had on it. I called him and he seemed extremely knowledgeable, sympathetic, and reassuring. I needed to act fast because of that 10-day DMV rule, so I signed up with him that day. Jake told me he could likely get my charge reduced to wet reckless, and he did! He handled everything for me and I never had to go to court. Thanks to Jake the D.A. went easy on me! If God forbid I ever have any future alcohol related charges, I wouldn't want anyone else handling my case!" S.B., Redwood City
"Thanks Again Jake! Absolutely best outcome I could have possibly asked for, AND IT WAS TAKEN CARE OF W/IN 24 hrs! (Completely DISMISSED) Now that's representation! Being in a panic, you cured that immediately!!" M.L., San Diego
"Hey Jake, You did what I thought wasn't possible and got my charges reduced. No jail time and reduced fines. I really appreciate your hard work. I hope nobody I know ever has the unfortunate instance of getting arrested for a DUI but if so I know who I'll recommend. Thanks again Jake!" S.K., Rohnert Park
"Jake is the best! This was my first arrest and I felt overwhelmed. I hired Jake (on the 9th day) and he walked me through every step of the process and made sure I understood what I had to do, when I had to do it, and why. I reside outside of Sonoma County, so it was extremely convenient for me to never have to appear in court. In my opinion, there is No One better at this than Jake. He turned my very scary situation into something my family and I could live with. If I had to sum it up in a phrase, it would be "Peace of Mind" And you can't put a price on that. Thanks Jake!" T.H., San Mateo
"I felt as if a close member of my family were in my corner and doing everything in their power to make this mistake a painless and distant memory. With the utmost care and professionalism you guided me through the adequate steps to close this chapter of my life. You were right about getting me through it.
With my sincerest gratitude I thank you."
"During the extremely stressful experiences that my DUI and Violation of Probation presented to me, Jake truly stood out as someone who not only cared for my well-being but was also entirely effective and successful in advocating for my best interests. I would recommend him highly, and I am grateful for what he brought to what I first felt was a hopeless situation."
B.D., Santa Rosa
"Jake was the lifeline we needed. His expertise and knowledge was obvious from the first interview. He went above and beyond at every turn, and supported us throughout a very difficult time. Thanks to this wonderful attorney, my husband finally stands the chance of getting back behind the driving seat sooner than we had anticipated. We will always recommend Jake unreservedly."
"Thanks Again Jake! Absolutely best outcome I could have possibly asked for, AND IT WAS TAKEN CARE OF W/IN 24 hrs! (Completely DISMISSED) Now that's representation! Being in a panic, you cured that immediately!!"
