“I have known Aaron professionally for years. He is an outstanding attorney who is hard working and client oriented. He is an excellent DUI attorney.”

Mark Blair, DUI / DWI Attorney in San Mateo, CA

“Mr. Bortel has shown as a member of the National College for DUI Defense that he is committed to providing cutting edge DUI defense. The National DUI College members represent the most experienced DUI defense attorneys in the country. If you are charged with a DUI, a general practice lawyer is not the answer. Good DUI defense is hard work and few offenses in our court system call for greater attorney expertise than cases involving driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. DUI cases are especially complex because they require defense counsel to understand BOTH scientific and legal issues. As a fellow member of the College, if you are looking for exceptional representation, I would not hesitate to recommend Aaron Bortel.”

Dorsett Phillips, DUI / DWI Attorney in Nevada City, CA

“Had the privilege of knowing him to be knowledgeable, but skillful as well. I personally had the opportunity to watch Mr. Bortel in trial in San Francisco a few years ago. His client had been charged with a DUI which also involved an accident. His client was not the driver of the car, but the police officer who was not there when the accident occurred insisted Mr. Bortel’s client was the driver. Mr. Bortel, with the skill that very few trial lawyers possess, showed the jury how mistaken the police officer was, and the jury found his client Not Guilty. He protected an innocent person. If you have been charged with a DUI in San Francisco, CA, before you hire a lawyer to represent you in your case, you should most certainly consult with Mr. Bortel. Once you do, you will want to hire him. He is not a good choice for you, he is a great choice.”

Donald Drewry, DUI / DWI Attorney in Oakland, CA

“Aaron shows a strong commitment to defending people wrongfully charged with DUI. He is committed to providing the best defense for his clients. Personally, I have seen his dedication to both his clients and to his colleagues in this very difficult field. He spends endless hours both preparing for his clients cases and learning as much as he can to help him and his defense. He is a tireless advocate.”

Manny Daskal, DUI / DWI Attorney in Eureka, CA

“I endorse this lawyer’s work. This attorney is considered to be aggressive, hard working and a valuable attorney by his clients. You should be calling this attorney if you have been arrested for DUI/DWI.”

Donald Ramsell, DUI / DWI Attorney in Wheaton, IL

Bruce Kapsack, DUI / DWI Attorney in Oakland, CA

“I endorse this lawyer’s work. I first became aware of Aaron’s commitment to defending DUI clients while attending a conference where he and I had the opportunity to discuss our views on defense tactics and law enforcement chicanery. Since that time several years ago, I’ve had the opportunity to regularly share my views with Aaron and receive his insightful feedback and contrary opinions when warranted. Aaron, like myself, has a unique dedication and enthusiasm for DUI defense. We often assist one another in covering cases where our calendars require conflicting appearances. To trust Aaron to handle a case for me takes very little thought; he is complete, thorough and detailed in his practice of law. Aaron takes every opportunity to continue to hone his skills and knowledge by attending continuing legal education seminars on drinking driver defense wherever and whenever possible. I highly recommend Aaron Bortel in the practice of DUI defense.”
