Mike Fremont, San Diego's DUI Guy...

DUI #4 is a felony in California. It means the slap on the wrist days are over and a pretty hefty jail or prison sentence awaits you, if convicted.

A criminal predicament like this may be one of the most expensive investments you make because it requires an attorney who will fight for your life as if it was his own. Your choice of counsel will must be wise because it will determine your freedom, your peace of mind, your occupation and reputation to name a few.

I was lucky to find a fighter to handle the 3 DUI's I was facing. I felt protected with my life in his hands and then he suddenly died.

I searched the web for the toughest and most successful DUI attorney San Diego had to offer and hundreds of lawyers and firms popped up all claiming to be rated #1 by some magazine or winner of some local award for attorney of the year.

This method was not going to work – evidently, San Diego has a tie and every DUI lawyer won first place. I found Mike Fremont through a friend of my deceased lawyer and he became my fighter. I watched him with a critical eye every step of the way. He had my life in his hands – I made poor legal decisions in the past with attorneys who did not care. I was not going to make a foolish decision again.

The battle is now over and I would not be sitting here at my desk writing an AVVO review if we lost. The outcome for all 3 DUI’s plus the prior was one I can live with. I was sentenced to 5-years of informal probation, 120-days of electronic ankle monitoring and one multiple offender DUI class running all 3 DUI’s concurrently. My license is revoked for 6-months and no device is required for the car when I drive again.

In closing, I want to share my first morning in court with Mike. It was interesting because he had 4 different clients in 4 separate courtrooms and was able to appear for each one without making anyone wait. That spoke volumes to me – his clients liked him and the court personnel all knew him. Thanks, Mike, for being a major part of my case. You are appreciated.

"Stroke" of Luck

My boyfriend was charged with felony sales of narcotics, felony possession of a controlled substance, and felony possession of ammunition by an ex-felon.

Mike Fremont steps up in court and negotiates the charges with the DA. The modified charges become misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance for personal use and possession of ammunition. My boyfriend pled guilty and was sentenced to a 270-day suspended sentence with a typical 3-year 4th waiver formal probation package which he signed and failed to follow through.

My boyfriend suffered a stroke and I became his caretaker. I reviewed the conditions of his probation because he was picked up for a violation for not reporting to probation.

I contacted Mike Fremont in a state of outrage. I begged him to fight for my boyfriend and get him an appropriate sentence because he was just unable to meet the terms of his sentence in his physical condition and I could not carry him myself.

In court, Mike touched on every matter I had asked him to and my boyfriend was released within hours and the terms of his new probation were drastically modified to accommodate his disabilities.

Mike Fremont has a courtroom presence that screams for fair and reasonable terms and in our case, they were all met.

Thank you, Mr. Fremont for recognizing and demanding fairness in an imperfect judicial system. We are deeply grateful to you for helping us through the legal battle.

Highest Recommendation

Michael met and exceeded my expectations and his excellent reputation. I was charged with DUI and property damage hit-and-run. As I had a prior DUI years before, this would have been a second offense. Other attorneys would have taken my money and simply gone through the motions, leaving me with a conviction and possible jail time. Michael investigated the case and was able to prove that the evidence against me was improperly obtained. Because of his efforts, both charges against me were dropped. I could not have had better representation.

Only observed in court.

Having had a public defender, I certainly wish I would have washed dishes for a year to pay for Mr. Fremont's legal services. He literally educated Judge Camarena and Deputy City Attorney Nicholas Thomo as to the letter of the law and when someone is or is not required to appear in court. He had printed handouts for the Judge and the City Prosecutors. The entire spectating court room as well as the aforementioned were jaw-dropped and stupefied. He commanded the entire court room and made Nicholas Thomo look like a law school dropout. Oh how Mr. Thomo tried to save face, but Mr. Fremont was not having it.

It's apparent that some people are just gifted and love what they do. Mr. Fremont exudes confidence and not in the manner of false bravado as Mr. Thomo. Mr. Fremont's confidence comes from truly knowing the law and having the brass balls to back it up. Never have I seen an attorney with so much moxie, that the Judge and Deputy City Attorney kept quiet while Mr. Fremont have them a lesson from first year law school.

It was an embarrassing situation for Camarena and Thomo as they looked as if that were second graders being scolded by the school principal. My legal outcome was much less than satisfactory, but watching Mr. Fremont in action was worth it.

If I am ever in need of legal assistance in the future, and I hope that I am not, Mr. Fremont well certainly be my go to guy.

DUI with an accident review

I received a felony DUI with a hit and run charge. I called Michael Fremont for legal assistance. Mr Fremont was very responsive to my case and was able to have my hit and run charge dismissed and lowered my charges to misdemeanors. Mr. Fremont kept me informed throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Mr Fremont to anyone going through or needing legal services.

CALL MICHAEL FIRST!

Even after all is said and done he has came to my rescue not once but twice since my case has ended in early September 2014. Which is when I had intended on writing this.

He was the 1st lawyer I met with regarding my 1st and last DUI Case and I definitely made the right choice. Everyone was giving me grief for retaining a lawyer in a first offense . Everyone didn't know the entire story, I was actually charged with a Felony DUI/ drug possession, and a higher BAC (.16) I felt like I needed one since I had just gotten out of a messy custody battle. He is a very straightforward, no BS kind of attorney . He won't tell you something because it's what you want to hear like a lot of other attorneys will just to make a few bucks.

He got me the best deal possible without going to trial ( financial decision) and has now gotten me 2 extensions and a warrant recalled for missing some of my probation terms .

THANKS MICHAEL!!!

Divine Intervention.

Mr. Fremont was the intervention needed in order to save my life as well as my sanity. I was on a course leading to certain death and could not find the strength to save myself. After being arrested for DUI'S that would certainly amount to jail and possibly a felony conviction, Mr. Fremont intervened to make this not the reality and was able to persuade the Judge to have me wear the SCRAM anklet as well as attend AA. This allowed the freedom to come home and keep my job and home.

A year of waiting for the sentence had me very apprehensive, yet, God, and Mr. Fremont, kept me calm and gave me the strength to confront the outcome. Mr. Fremont continuously kept me informed and provided the reassurance to feel secure with his diligence to intervene and keep me free.

Mr. Fremont performed the impossible, in my mind, with the result. His extraordinary work set me free to walk from the courtroom with no jail time, no felony, no fines. Divine. 
The judge, the bailiff, the courtroom clerk, all were considerate to suggest what a transformation from the first time seeing me a year prior. Mr. Fremont told in 27 years of work, he had not witnessed this.

The simple truth and fact is Mr. Fremont took his brilliance and determination to task, and this provided all in the courtroom witness to a miracle.

Mr. Fremont, you saved my life, quite literally.

Perhaps, if you need this miracle, this Divine intervention, let me once more give his name..

Mr. Michael Jon Fremont.

Happy Easter, Mr. Fremont.

I am free to enjoy this Easter day in God's majesty.

Thank you.

Amazing and professional attorney!!!

I was in a super tough spot legally and needed immediate assistance. Mr. Fremont not only came to my aid immediately but went above and beyond my expectations. He was extremely thorough and professional and handled my case with the utmost care and attentiveness. He really knows what he is doing and I was extremely satisfied with the outcome. I highly recommend Mr. Fremont and would use him again.

Greatest DUI attorney.

My story is not made up for any marketing reasons it's 100% true for anyone who is in need of a great DUI attorney. 
I was on vacation in San Diego with my 2 kids and was pulled over. I blew a .10 and since one of kids were under 14 and had a felony DUI 9 years ago less than 10 years rule, it was not looking good for me. They were offering me 6 years prison term with halftime but Mr. Fremont did the unthinkable. He negotiated only 4 months of work furlough, probation and dui classes. I was able to keep my job, keep my family and made a choice never to drink again. I have now been sober for over 4 years since the incident and my life is 100 times better. This would have not happened if i had been sent to prison. I would have lost everything including my family, job and sanity. Unfortunately I have made some stupid mistakes which required the help of criminal attorneys. I owe Mr Fremont at the very least to write this review to pass my experience to someone who may be dealing with a DUI. Don't be fooled DUI's are very serious and will stay in your record. This why you should hire Mr Fremont to represent you and give you a chance to either minimize the punishment or get it thrown out of court. If you're reading this because you received a DUI call Mr Michael Fremont. He is the best DUI attorney!

Mr. Fremont I want to thank you again you really did save my life. From the bottom of my heart I thank you.

Great Attorney

Michael was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He updated me when necessary and was always available to me. I had gotten my second dui and blew a .11. With his extensive knowledge and understanding for the legal system he was able to get my 2nd dui dropped to a wet and reckless. Along with that my fines were dropped significantly. Although he may come across as a bit arrogant up front don't let that get in the way of having him represent you. He is as affordable, knowledgeable and well known as any other lawyer in San Diego county. Cant thank you enough Mike. Keep up the good work.

Truly happy with his service

I would truly recommend this lawyer mr. Fremont! From a DUI he got me down to a wet -reckless! When I first called him I got a response right away. Mr Fremont is really good at answering right away, a long with his secretaries. Not only he took care of my DUI but of another speeding ticket. With my wet reckless obviously I didn't want to have another point on my license, mr Fremont went to court for me and they dismiss my case. I am really happy with his job and all the help he gave me.

Mr. Fremont came to the rescue

While I was moving one early evening, I found out that my ex wife called the police and made a false report. I called around and a friend gave me Mr. Fremont's number for assistance as I had learned that the police were actively looking for me and arrest warrant issued. Mr. Fremont was available, listened to the situation. He was able to get a hold of the police and have them wait until the next morning so I could turn myself in. The next morning I went to the police station with Mr. Fremont, he knew everyone and everyone knew. He explained the situation to the officers and after considering the facts and learning the correct facts from me and Mr. Fremont. Without Mr. Fremont's assistance, I am sure that had the police arrested me, my work truck would have been impounded and I would have been arrested.

Got me what I want

Mike is a great lawyer he saved me from getting a ignition interlock device which was huge for me. My BAC was a .23 and he still got me off. Mike is a little rough when you first get to know him, but trust me he's got the experience to get you the best outcome possible. If you got a DUI he is the man. You can't beat the amount of experience he brings!

Highly Recommend

From the first phone call to the meeting of our appointment, I trusted Michael to go forward with my case. I was tested numerous times by the police by breathalyzer but will still sent to jail. I knew I needed a lawyer, and specifically a D.U.I. lawyer. One who ONLY deals with cases related to potential D.U.I's and has a RECENT history of winning cases to get the fairest outcome. My case is still in the beginning stage, but within one month, I was able to get my license back. My friends told me it wasn't worth it, but without a lawyer I knew wouldn't have had a chance and would at the systems mercy without a license. Michael has been professional, will support the law and YOUR RIGHTS UNDER IT and he is a cool person who has lived & surfed in Encinitas for a long time not some *** who just wants your money. He has always been reachable and has always called me back to make sure my questions are answered. I feel better knowing I have him on my side.

FREMONT SAVED MY BUTT

I had a very complicated DUI case and the DA and Judge were on a mission to convict me. Another lawyer tried to argue my case at first, but in the end, it was Michael Fremont who made the winning argument that led to my complete exoneration. Fremont is a brilliant researcher, a tremendous orator, and his knowledge of both law and human nature is unsurpassed. You can probably pay more money to a bigger SD law firm and get a less qualified junior associate, but why would you ever think of going to anyone else while Mr. Fremont is available. If you need a great lawyer, you must hire Michael Fremont. If you don't, and you end up convicted, you will have nobody to blame but yourself. I know that if I ever need a lawyer again, I'm calling Mr. Fremont, and if anyone near or dear to me needs a lawyer, I'm sending the, to him, and nobody else.

VICTORY!

Michael recently swept the court room floor with unbridled passion and incontrovertable professionalism, resulting in the suppression of all evidence in my DUI case assimilated by SDPD. This trial was a career ending one due to my military service, that Michael was able to save due to his obvious respect of the court, other council and command presence of the courtroom. It was completely evident that Michael knew the ins and outs of the law, and cited a controlling case that the court followed in the suppression of all evidence!

Does an Excellent Job!

I hired Fremont for a MIP case and he got my case fully dropped. I never had to go to court or pay any court fees. The man knows what he's doing can handle similar driving related cases just as successfully.

A knowledgeable, responsible lawyer who get results

Michael Fremont was able to get my entire record expunged(which included 4 different charges. 1felony 3 misdameanors) He did this in an expedient manner. Each case was in a different county and he handled each case with professionalism and personal care. Bottom line is Mr. Fremont was true to his word and got results.

Success with DMV Safety Hearing

Outstanding and diligent service with unwavering dedication to the case. Michael was able to obtain a set-aside for my Driver's License suspension. By compiling evidence, utilizing police reports, referencing previous court cases and demonstrating a comprehensive case to argue for the dismissal of said police reports, Michael rendered them inadmissible as testimony, by establishing that the arrest was conducted unlawfully. By virtue of his efforts, I was able to avoid ANY license suspension and was able to retrieve my Driver's License without any subsequent legal or financial difficulties.
