DUI Reviews

I had a DUI issue recently. I have never had a problem with the law as serious as this one. I did panic a bit after and knew I had to get a lawyer to help my future. I researched the Web and read the reviews for awesome DUI Lawyers. Hiring a lawyer can be intimidating. Ron's 30 years experience and step by step guidance helped me with my case. Jonie was amazing with keeping me calm. Ron Hoffman is a great lawyer and I would refer any friends or family to him. The results of my case was that the court date was dismissed and I was able to get my license back. I am grateful for their services. Happy customer satisfaction!!!

I was so stressed and scared when I got arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of calling Attorney Hoffman's office, I started feeling calmer. Mr. Hoffman and his staff treated me with respect and I felt reassured that everything would be o.k. Their knowledge, confidence and friendliness helped me fix my case with even better results than I ever imagined. Thank you!

Best money we ever spent was the day we hired Attorney Hoffman. My husband was facing a lot of jail time because of his prior DUI cases. Mr. Hoffman encouraged him to get the help he needed in a treatment program which has changed his life and ours. He convinced the Prosecutor and Judge to allow him to do electronic monitoring (house arrest) instead of jail. We can't thank you enough for your hard work in negotiating such a great solution to this awful legal problem.

Sincerely, J. P.


When I got my first DUI I didn't realize how serious or complicated it was. Not only did I have a problem with the Court, but also I faced losing my job because it required me to have a license. Mr. Hoffman listened to my concerns and explained to me his techniques for dealing with these problems. He was able to find a loophole in the breath machine records and consequently got my case dismissed and saved my license from being suspended.

I was charged with a second DUI and to make matters worse, I foolishly refused to take a breath test. Attorney Hoffman proved to the prosecutor that the police had failed to warn me of the consequences. The refusal was dropped which kept me from going to Jail. This flaw that Mr. Hoffman discovered helped me greatly with the DMV. Thank you again, you're the best ! Jose S.

I was charged with a Felony DUI with Injury. The first offer from the District Attorney was for 3 years in Prison. After months of Mr. Hoffman fighting and negotiating with the District Attorney and Judge, I received straight probation, no jail time, and a treatment program for my drinking problem. I would without reservation recommend Mr. Hoffman to anyone seeking hard working, caring legal help.

When I got my recent DUI, I thought my career in the Marines was over. You strongly recommended a treatment program, which you helped coordinate with my Superiors to help minimize the Military penalties and used this information to keep the Judge from sending me to jail. Thank you Mr. Hoffman.

I had experience the worst when it comes to the law. I was looking at a 2nd DUI with Injury (Felony) and was by far the scariest moment in my life. I was calling around different attorney offices and not a single one had the decency to take the time to speak with me. I called a good friend of mine and he mention to give Ron Hoffman a call.

When I called his office and spoke to Joanie who made me feel VERY comfortable over the phone by the way. Not even 10 minutes goes by and I already was getting a call from Ron Hoffman and I spent over an hour with him over the phone. My heart was beating so fast but after talking with Ron, my nerves began to calm down. He was very professional not only regarding the law but in life. He guided me through the whole entire process and we had both worked together on this case.

It took the DA 3 months to file the charges and originally the charges should of been a Felony but Ron got them to drop it to a Misdemeanor right off the bat which was huge deal. That right there (My Friend) is impressive because if it was not easy by any means for Mr.Hoffman, I literally would of been screwed over by simply going with a public defender.

The next step was getting me into DUI court and Mr. Hoffman negotiated to the DA since he thought it would be a good fit for me. Not only did we go and find out that they would not accept me in DUI court because of my charge (23153) DUI with Injury and both Harbor and Westminster courts in (Orange County). So far it has been 12 months dealing with this case.

Here it is the last and final attempt to try and work out a deal. Mr.Hoffman does the Unthinkable and got the DA to drop my charges from a (23153) DUI with Injury to a (23152) Regular DUI. That is really amazing because it is not an easy task to pull off a move like that. I was orginally looking at doing 240 days in jail to him dropping it down all the way to 75 days in jail. Yes I know this is not idea but it is better than the other alternatives the DA was wanting.

Thank you Joanie and Mr.Hoffman for all of your support through this whole entire nightmare of a process. Hands down the best attorney I have ever had.

Ron Hoffman and his staff were Fantastic when dealing with such a serious issue of DUI. When I first Called Ron I was very nervous and worried for my daughter and her freedom. She had a failure to appear on top of her DUI and I knew just how bad this could be. Ron was able to immediately put me at ease and gave me the confidence that there was hope and a light at the end of the tunnel. Ron was able to get the failure to appear dismissed and also no jail time for my daughter. Ron Gave Great guidance and walked us through the process to a conclusion that my daughter an I was completely happy with. No Jail equals happy parent! That was not the end of my daughter's dealings with the legal system. She got another DUI before the first one went to trial that was not filed until Attorney Ron Hoffman got the first DUI Resolved. In addition Ron had to deal with another serious legal issue that was running almost concurrent with the DUI which looked really bad and was bad. I again knew how bad this could be. Jail was almost guaranteed. But again My Attorney Ron Hoffman with his experience and tremendous relationships that he has developed with the District Attorneys and Judges in Southern California along with his Legal Knowledge through all the years in practice. Attorney Ron Hoffman Came Through again. NO JAIL TIME......I am forever Grateful to Ron and his staff. My daughter learned a lot and is a better person thanks to the relationship we have with Attorney Ron. Joanie who works with Ron is also GREAT.... Thanks Team for all that you have done. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND RON.

I can't begin to thank Mr. Hoffman enough for his extensive efforts throughout the entire case. He went absolutely above and beyond throughout the entire process. From day one he was immediately actively pursuing ways to prevent my case from ever going to court and once that was no longer an option, actively began working on getting the case ultimately dismissed. His communication was consistent and reassuring, despite my frantic worries all the time... Micaiah Botts
★★★★★
My family and I simply owe our life and future to Ron Hoffman. If you are looking for a lawyer that goes above and beyond the call of duty you can't find a better lawyer than Ron. He took my case head on from the moment I called his office. I was involved in an accidental hit and run where I was unaware of the injury. Every step of the way, Ron guided me through an almost two year long investigation and court settlement process and was constantly by my side through out every crossroad... Bill Martin

I have been working with Mr. Hoffman for over 11 years. I have seen first hand his genuine dedication to his clients, and how his experience, knowledge and passion have gotten clients fantastic results. He treats each of his clients as his only client, and takes the time to develop detailed strategies and defenses for each individual case. I have never hesitated to refer Mr. Hoffman to anyone who has asked me for a good Criminal Defense attorney. He is a fantastic attorney!... Neeta P.

Ron was so accommodating and professional. With a Firm like his you wouldn't expect him to be as accessible, but he immediately returned phone calls, was easy to communicate with and was very sympathetic to my situation. He went above and beyond and was able to get a better result than I'd hoped or expected. I highly recommend Ron Hoffman and his firm. He made a difficult and anxiety fueled process bearable and made me feel safe. He is a lovely man. One does not wish to need a criminal attorney, but if you do need one, Ron's the guy to call...

Ron and his team were the perfect pairing for what I needed taken care of. Every step of the way he was extremely helpful and informative (not his first rodeo). His work ethic and attitude were exemplary and it showed with the results of using his services. I would recommend anyone I know to give Ron a call if they need help in his realm of expertise. Many thanks Ron and associates!... Donald N.

I hate lawyers. They are hard to get a hold of, greedy and unreliable. Ron is the opposite of all these things. He deserves 6 stars, and I very much recommend him. He helped me through my case with nothing but kindness, understanding, and knowledge and eventually got it dropped. Thanks for everything Ron!... Avi Z.
