Introduction: Experience and Aggressiveness. I've been defending those accused of DUI for over 20 years. My work in Courts all over the San Francisco Bay Area is limited to exclusively DUI defense. I also have similar experience with DMV, which has helped me save countless drivers licenses. Helping people. Getting the best result possible on a DUI case can help save jobs, licenses, keep people out of jai, and save a lot of money in the future on insurance.

Someone very close to me chose Aaron to represent him for a DUI. He had interviewed several of San Francisco 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 is 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 expertise demonstrated by Aaron Bortel.

Simply stated, Aaron Bortel is one of the finest DUI attorneys specializing in DUI cases. I hired Aaron after my DUI arrest (.12 BAC). Initially, after my arrest, I really had no idea how to proceed in finding a good lawyer to represent my case. Thankfully, a very close friend sent me Aarons profile link. After reading his simple, yet very informative link, I immediately had a very good feeling about him so I gave him a call. He almost immediately called me back, and from that first conversation, Aaron was nothing short of amazing! He literally made what could have been one of the worst experiences in my life, into one that became a positive, less heartbreaking one. I owe him MANY thanks for my life! I can never say quite enough about the talented Mr. Bortel, however, if you are in the unfortunate position of getting arrested for a DUI, look no further. Aaron Bortel is the attorney for you!

Aaron Bortel helped save my life. After my third DUI, I was hopeless. I knew that I was looking at a prison term and I felt that my life as I knew it was over. Fate intervened. Through the internet I was lead to Mr. Bortel. Our interview was informative. Over the next year Mr. Bortel both fought in and out of court for me. He advised that I seek help and change my life. After countless conversations I finally took his advice. To my surprise it worked and the court system responded. I did not go to prison. I did not even do any jail time. I remain sober and grateful to this day.

I was extremely happy with the work that Aaron Bortel did for me. His knowledge in the field of DUI law and DMV administrative actions is unsurpassed. Aaron is attentive to his clients and extremely responsive when questions need to be addressed. Whenever I had a question or concern about my case, Aaron would return my calls almost immediately. Getting arrested for a DUI and worrying how that would affect my future caused extreme emotional stress for me, Aaron empathized with that and guided me calmly through the criminal and DMV process that lead to a successful outcome. I was amazed how Aaron knew the Judge, prosecutor, and DMV Hearing Officer in my case. His past dealings with all these people clearly helped get results that were much better than I could have ever imagined. I would highly recommend Aaron Bortel to anyone who needed help with a DUI legal matter.

My career is a Professional Driver and that I need my license. So several months ago I went to a 49ers game, well when I was leaving I got pulled over and arrested for a DUI. My B.A.C was 1.5. The very next day I hired Mr. Bortel. He immediately relieved 100% of my stress and worries! He gave me tons of information and walked through all the procedures with the DMV and Court step by step. My case was pretty cut and dry, I was double the legal limit while driving. So I am thinking there is not much hope, but Mr. Bortel showed his talents and got my 1.5 dropped. Listen Mr. Bortel is the real deal! He is the lawyer that walks into the court room, and makes you wish he was representing you. I am 100% grateful and pleased with the outcome of this case! And even after my case was over, he helped me set up an affordable payment plan for the fine. Mr. Bortel is an EXCELLENT lawyer, I recommend him to anyone. When you are going through one of the toughest times in your life, why not get the BEST in the business to help you.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Fees are set on a case by case basis. Every case is different and requires individual attention. My fees are typically higher than others because you will be represented by an attorney with over 26 years experience who exclusively handles DUI Cases. Almost every other attorney quoting prices on this site handles other cases that do not involve DUI or driving offenses.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Your first contact will be with me directly and I will handle your case from beginning to end. We set up a free consultation and go over everything involved in your case. I will answer all of your questions and make sure you understand what the process is with court and DMV. I can usually handle most if not all of your case without you having to go to court or DMV. If I need you to testify we spend plenty of time preparing you for the hearing or trial. You will have my cell phone number and are welcome to contact me with questions or update me with new information throughout your case. Once the case is over you are still welcome to contact me with any questions.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I travel all over the country attending DUI seminars. I am in constant contact with DUI lawyers all over the country, working on new defenses and keeping up with changes in the law. I have helped many attorneys understand how to administer and understand field sobriety testing. I have handled thousands of DUI Cases.
