"I was sitting behind the wheel of my truck with the engine running in the middle of an intersection. I had a .25 alcohol level and I threw up in front of the cop. I bombed the field sobriety tests. The Marin County jury hated my guts but they found me 'not guilty' on all charges." --- G.T.

- G.T

I was arrested for DUI and blew a .09/.09 on the breath machine. The highway patrol officer said I almost caused a car accident by swerving into an occupied lane on the freeway right in front of him. Mr. Burglin and his expert witness convinced the jury that I was under the legal limit at the time of driving and I was found 'not guilty' of everything."

- J.L.

"Paul Burglin has been my attorney in four separate jury trials---two in Sonoma County and two in Marin County. Two cases ended in hung juries and the other two ended in full acquitals. The last trial involved a cop who testified under oath that I had pointed a gun at him. Burglin absolutely destroyed him on cross-examination. It was unbelievable!"
