I was in the stadium parking lot after the 49er game sitting in my truck with my wife when a man approached my vehicle yelling that I bumped his rear passenger corner bumper. I explained to the man I was not driving and the truck was parked and not on, we began to yell and it got intense very fast, the security showed up during our yelling and soon after the police they separated us and gave me a sobriety balance exam that I failed, I was asked some questions and arrested and placed into custody.
My blood was withdrawn for an alcohol test at the police station in a holding room by a lady then I sat around for 8 hours and released. At the arraignment hearing I pled not guilty and was told to show up in a week for trial arrangements.
I sat in my car and began to research DUI lawyers and reading reviews after narrowing my search to about five lawyers I decided on my gut instinct and chose Aaron Bortel. It took eight months for the trial but during that time he communicated with me and kept me up to date with the progressions of the case and made all the DMV arrangements and extensions for me.
In the end the case was sent back to the D.A office for a second review and they refused to dismiss the case and I did not want to go through the whole thing again so we agreed to take a lesser charge and ended up pleading guilty to a dry wreck less which doesnt count as a prior and a lot less cheaper than DUI fees and no classes, no community service, no ignition device and no suspended license, he won my DMV hearing that I never had to attend. I went with my instincts and i got a chance to fight in court against the system and won. Thank you Aaron.
