Results other attorneys told me were impossible...
I was involved in a car accident and subsequently arrested after blowing a .09. Luckily, I hired Craig Sturm who managed to have the entire alcohol related charge dropped. Instead, I was charged with a speeding exhibition ticket which will be expunged in 2 years. (DUI stays on your record for 10). Considering that I had never been in trouble with the law before I was very nervous and had an endless supply of questions. Craig Sturm always answered and/or returned my calls immediately and never made me feel that any of my questions were dumb. I've heard horror stories from people that hire attorneys who treat them like a number once they have been paid. I can honestly say I've never gotten that feeling from Craig Sturm. He gently walked me through the process while simultaneously fighting to get me positive results.
Thankful to have worked with Sturm
My experience with Craig and Sturm Law was better then I could have imagined. In a time, when having to face a serious situation in my life, Sturm Law, was there to not only provide me with the information I needed but also the support to go through the process of dealing with being accused for a DUI. I received communication via email and telephone before and after each hearing to update me on the status of my conviction. I always was able to get a real person on the phone not just an answering machine. They even sent me a copy of the police report and the motions filed for my court case and DMV case. I thought I couldn’t afford an attorney but Sturm Law worked with my situation and offered payments to facilitate things for me.
I have and will continue to recommend Sturm Law to friends and family in my life. Please let me know if you need anything further as working with Craig it really made a difference for me and I am thankful to have worked with Sturm Law.
Craig is my hero, vindicated!
A year ago I found myself at the eleventh hour searching for a DUI Defense Attorney. Pacing the living room, I typed my name and telephone on the keyboard playing a “HAIL MARY”, I was distraught and alone. I lit up a cigarette out on the balcony overlooking the 101 eerily. A minute later the phone rang…
It was Craig on the line giving it to me straight; My odds, my bets, my life; “I win for you!” it’s really, no joke, my wife and I till this day contemplate witty remarks to campaign T-shirts in support of this man because my experience with Craig Sturm Law was genuine, honest, and successful.

The Best Help I could get!
Craig was great when it came to my DUI back in the summer of 2010. This was most trouble I had gotten into, and Craig made me feel comfortable that he knew what he was doing. This gave me a bit of piece of mind. He made it the whole court process so easy, I just had do whatever he told me, and that was that. He let me know exactly what was going on; if it wasn't necessary for me to appear in court, he was there representing me; and three years later, his office even calls me to let me know I'm eligible for expungement. He even got my punishment reduced a bit- I was able to choose to pay a lower court fee or require less time on my community service.
I definitely would say to go with an attorney rather doing it alone, and Craig knows what he's doing.
Grateful for Sturm Taking my Case at a Great Rate.
Craig handled my State, Local And Municipal Lawmatter. · I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers. I got a public intoxicationin MB, had no prior record and was granted a diversion. I am currentlyattending the AA classes in order to keep it off of my record. I was fairlysurprised at the amount I was given (24) and speaking with them. I am, however,extremely grateful for them taking my case at a great rate (compared to otherlawyers). I mainly worked with his paralegal and she was awesome! Avvo Review
Sturm Law did what my other lawyer couldn't....
My DUI came from a checkpoint, and blowing a .09/.08. When looking for the representation that I felt could help me fight the charges (I researched long and hard), I researched and settled on a lawyer (BIG MISTAKE) who told me that given my situation and low BAC, that any lawyer could get me a Wet Reckless easily, and he believed he could do more for me. After very little communication with him, angry voicemails about payment from his assistant, and a long, drawn out court process, I was not being offered any lesser charge from the Prosecutor! Not even a Wet Reckless! They were tough! I thought I would have to either go to trial or face the consequences.
I began to look for alternatives, and a friend referred me to Craig Sturm. After reading through his website as well as a thorough and free consultation with Craig himself, I was impressed by the level of understanding and training Craig had.
Craig was able to have the Judge grant me a transfer of representation and the time needed to gather all the necessary information to proceed with my case. His positive attitude, great relationships with Judges and Prosecutors made it seem like a whole new case! My charges were brought down to an Exhibition of Speed (better than a Wet Reckless). He did it all with a confident assuring smile!
Throughout the process, Linda at Sturm Law kept me informed at every step, answered all of my questions in detail and assured I understood everything! Sturm Law is a quality firm with a high level of expertise. I will and do refer them to anyone seeking representation.
I would have saved a lot of time and money had I found Sturm Law in the beginning, but I'm happy to have been referred to them. Things could and would have been a lot worse.

Helped me get through a tough time...
I was arrested sitting in my car, I blew a 0.06 two hours later they took my blood and it was a 0.08. I put every thing in my previous lawyer hands because I trusted them...Well one day my lawyer called me and said they are only offering me a wet reckless and that's the best offer and should accept it....(THAT'S IT, remind you I had no clue what this was.) I started to do research on my own and discovered wet reckless basically is saying driving and alcohol was involved. So I called different lawyers to get a second opinion, because deep down inside I didn't feel a wet reckless applied to my situation 1. I was not driving 2. I blew a 0.06 3. My blood work was 0.08 two hours later, after the paper work, calling a tow truck, then the drive to the hospital to draw blood which was on the other side of town. On the day before accepting a plea offer Mr. Sturm office return my phone call that morning. I met with Linda G that afternoon, we went over my case she educated me more on the meanings of my case explaining DUI is "Driving" under the Influence not sitting in your car on a rise, but because my previously lawyer did not take time out to do research and later I found out did not specialize in DUI cases, or file any motions etc. I lost my job I was out of so much money my lawyer took all my savings and I failed to mention I found the lawyer from Avvo this LAWYER have one of the highest score and don't no jack.... UNFREAKINGBELIVABLE. So yes I hired Craig Sturm and couldn't be more happier they are very attentive, caring, professional and they listen with empathy, they did soooo much research on my case they told me things I didn't even no happened. After explaining what I had been thru and where I was at Broke, Jobless they accepted me with open arms and worked a payment plan out with me. Craig Sturm, Linda G and everybody at Strum office love what they do, Strum office and staff does not mind digging, fighting and getting right down to the truth. I'm so grateful to have stumble upon Sturm Law they were truly Heaven sent. Thank you for all you have done.
Very Happy with the Results of my Case
My overall experience with Sturm Law was GREAT!
I was able to receive step-by-step details of my case through emails and phone calls. Being in this situation can be very nerve wrecking but Linda, Sturm Law’s Legal Administrator, always took the time to patiently explain the process. The payment option made it affordable hiring an expert to handle my case and I’m glad I hired an expert not just any attorney.
I am VERY happy with the results of my case!
DMV: I can’t afford losing my license and Sturm Law helped me with this too. Before I hired the firm I didn’t know that even if I won the court case, the DMV could still go after my driving record. Sturm Law had my DMV hearing “set aside” which means it was DISMISSED!!! I am very happy that a DUI wont be on my DMV record for 10 years.
Court: In court Sturm Law got me better results than expected. I was able to have the DUI DISMISSED, the court fees reduced, NO AA’s, NO community service, NO DUI program classes.
Craig Sturm has extensive certifications and trainings in the DUI field. He knows his way around court and the court staff respects him. My friend, who referred Sturm Law was right; Craig Sturm is awesome!
I would recommend STURM LAW to anyone who wants to WIN his or her case! I’m glad I chose Sturm Law!
My friend referred me to Sturm, and I couldn't be happier!
Back in July 2012, I was pulled over going north on the 14 freeway late at night for passing a CHP patrol car and going slightly over the speed limit. I had admitted to the officer of having consumed a drink earlier in the night and went through the battery of field sobriety tests on the side of the road. Thinking I had passed all of them, the officer then wanted me to "blow" into a apparatus to test for alcohol. I refused and got arrested on the spot. As anyone like me who has never been arrested before, it was quite a scary time. I didn't know what to expect and amidst the towing of my vehicle and having to spend the night in jail. Would I lose my job? I'm a professional. It was a lot to take in.
A friend of mine gave me attorney Craig Sturm's telephone number since he had gone through a similar ordeal years ago. He told me Mr. Sturm had his charges reduced from DUI to a wet reckless driving charge.
My circumstances were much different. First, my driving priveleges were suspended automatically for one year. Second, the district attorney for the state was aiming for the maximum conviction of DUI with an additional charge for refusal. That meant five days jail time, a nine month alcohol class and three years summary probation. This was all too great a predicament to face. Mr. Sturm filed a motion in court to prove that I was wrongfully stopped and had an opportunity to question the arresting officer on his expertise on knowing when someone is impaired or when it may be consumption. He did a very good job cross witnessing the officer and placing much doubt on the side of the prosecution that I was not impaired the night of my arrest. I had seen the video, Mr. Sturm had seen the video. We both knew I had a strong case if I went to trial.
Toward the end of my case, I plead no contest to reduced charges. I needed it over for personal reasons. Mr. Sturm got the charges dropped down to no jail time and a three month alcohol class. (What I would have received if I had no refusal charge and had blown 0.08 or less.) He convinced the prosecution that I was not impaired and in three years I can get this DUI charge expunged.
Mr. Sturm was professional and likeable throughout the entire process. Linda Gavilan, his assistant, was also a great help and professional whenever I had questions. I will recommend Sturm Law to anyone I know of in need of an expert DUI attorney.
The Man to Trust...
Life is tricky and eventually we all get ourselves in some tricky positions, when this happens remember the name Craig Sturm of Sturm Law. I myself have been in more tough spots than most (I'm kinda nuts though) and this is the only man I trust to make my problems seem like just a distant bad dream.
I write this as a Thank you to Craig for his incredible service as a lawyer and as a long time friend. I also write this for my friends who though probably not as... well, let's just say "eccentric" as me, could at times benefit from his help. Why should I be the only person with the best darn good attorney in Los Angeles. For your legal needs there is no one I would trust more, know that he is just a phone call away when the inevitable happens.
My overall experience with Sturm law was outstanding!!! I received professional, excellent, friendly customer service every time I called the firm. I was updated every step of the way by phone and email with new information, as it came in. I was able to make payments instead of one large lump sum, which made it affordable to hire an experience attorney and not just any attorney. Craig Sturm is an expert in DUI law and the DMV process. I thought my career was over. A second time DUI on a Commercial Drivers License would have meant my career was over. DMV was taking my license away FOR LIFE! Craig Sturm of Sturm Law was able to overturn the DMV decision, reduce my charge and save my career. I have no complaints just praises. I thank Sturm Law for helping me through such a rough time. I wish them success throughout the years and would recommend Sturm Law to friends, family and any one who needs a DUI expert. Thanks Sturm Law!
Thank you to Mr. Craig Sturm Esq. & Sturm Law, for providing me with THE BEST legal representation I could have ever asked for. Case dismissed and no jail time. Thanks for always saving my back! I will try to stay out of trouble a little longer this time. Drinks on me this weekend.
