Client Reviews


I was referred to Aaron by a work colleague who was familiar with Aaron’s skills as a DUI attorney. From the first moment I walked into his office and met him, I was impressed. Aaron is very professional, and you can tell that he knows his stuff. He even had a breathalyzer in his office and he explained to me how they worked and where they can be misleading. Since I was a science guy, he also went over how your body metabolizes the alcohol you consume and how it goes into your blood. In our initial consultation, he asked me details about my arrest and answered every question that I had (which was a lot). I was very nervous about my arrest, especially since I am not from the U.S., I was just here visiting when I was arrested for DUI. He told me what possible outcomes he thought he could get from the charges, and what kind of time frame I should expect. I felt very comfortable with my decision to hire Aaron after walking out of his office after our first meeting. Aaron kept me informed every time there was a development on my case. In each event, he would describe the situation and let me know what to expect next. When it came time to for Aaron to talk to the D.A. about my case, Aaron was able to have my charges significantly reduced at the first hearing. Given my situation, it was a very good outcome, and I was able to accept the charges, pay a small fine and move on. The best part of this entire process was that Aaron was able to help me keep my drivers license! I am very grateful for the help that Aaron provided, and I highly recommend him to anyone needing help with DUI charges – A DUI Client
Someone very close to me chose Aaron to represent him for a DUI. He had interviewed several of San Francisco’s best DUI/criminal defense attorneys before settling on Aaron and it turned out to be one of the best decisions of his life.Aaron walked him through the entire process (lots of moving pieces, even and especially after the court decision) and was always available to answer questions. He knows his stuff and he’s a nice guy to boot.My friend got the best possible legal outcome for his situation and will be able to put this experience behind him much sooner because of Aaron’s expertise – Justin R.
Arrested for DUI in SF but did not live there. Had some worries regarding making and attending the court dates especially since I did not live there and travel often for work. Glad to know that my case, although it took some time, was dismissed (DMV) thanks to Aaron. Also I did not have to change my life and daily routine because of this incident all thanks to a very knowledgeable attorney. I was able to get a temporary licences and finally get back my real license and I didn’t even have to show up once to court. – Adam L.
I did not know Aaron prior to requiring his services. I did speak to another lawyer about him and he came highly recommended. Aaron called me quickly and reviewed my case with me thoroughly. He did all of the leg work to set up appointments and handle both the Court and DMV requirements. He always made me feel like a deserving citizen rather than a criminal! He was very responsive throughout the length of our engagement, taking time to respond by phone and by email with any and all details that I needed or asked for. I had an extremely positive outcome in both my Court and DMV meetings. I know that I would not have won either of those hearings without the professional and personal attention that Aaron gave in both of these courts while representing me. Thank you Aaron for giving me my life back! – Jimmy Y.
Aaron made my DUI case go very smooth, he has well knowledge of the court system and works hard to give you the best results . I didn’t even have to show up to court or to the DMV hearing. We all know how time consuming this can be especially if you have a busy schedule.I didn’t even take one day off from work he took care of all the appearances. He gave me good advice and kept me very calm. One of the reasons I picked Aaron was because I got my DUI the day before Christmas eve which was a Friday. We all know how busy everybody is with their loved ones during those times. On saturday which was Christmas eve I called a whole bunch of lawyers and they were all answering services telling me that I wouldn’t be able to talk to their lawyer until after the holidays , but not Aaron he took my call that same day and gave me all the advice I needed. He stayed on the phone with me for like an hour or so and wasn’t rushing me. I would defenetly recommend him to any one that has to go through a DUI. I was very scared because I taught I was done. i was very intoxicated when I got pulled over and that was the cause of my refusal. He fought through thick and thin and not only did my refusal get dropped @ court and @ DMV I kept my licence without a suspension. Thus saving my job.Thanks to Aaron I can go on with my life – Austin L.
