24 Hours of Sobriety

How a Single Client Changed Me, and This Law Practice Forever...

One afternoon 30 years ago, a Fullerton Police Officer was on routine patrol when he observed a vehicle parked against the curb with a person slumped over the driver’s wheel.

Stopping to investigate the circumstances, he approached the vehicle, and knocked on the window several times without response. To determine if the person inside perhaps needed medical help, he opened the car door, only to have a young man fall out into the street. Subsequent investigation led to him being arrested and charged with DUI after a blood test determined his alcohol level was .22!

His name was Bill W. and when he hired me I spent little time on examining why a young man of 18 would have be so intoxicated in the early afternoon to pass out while driving.

Is it really possible to turn things around and make a come back?


It's hard to believe that I've been practicing law for 44 years.  It's even harder to believe some of the amazing stories that I've been blessed with being part of.

I and my team have always believed in people and their ability to overcome any obstacle which is put in front of them if they have the support necessary.

If you or someone you know is in trouble and simply wants to get off, we are not the firm for you.  However, if they want to right the ship and turn their lives around and are willing to work on improving while taking on a lifelong challenging to overcome their addictions, we'd love to talk.

How a Person Had the Strength to Start and Stay on the Road to Recovery

Gary V. came in to see me for a client interview, and no sooner had he sat down than I suspected he was under the influence of some drug. He tried to discuss the circumstances of his arrest, but his slurred speech made it almost impossible to understand him. I finally told him to leave and only come back if he was sober, and wanted my help in staying that way.

Two weeks later, Gary returned sober, and with his father. Through tears, he expressed his strong desire to become drug free. What he described was typical for people who have lost control of their lives to drugs: Relationships in jeopardy, job at risk, health deteriorating. He was also facing prison for felony crimes. He agreed to attend an AA meeting a day until he enrolled in a probation-approved, state-licensed residential treatment program.
