Mr. Jon Bryant Artz: Attorney with Law Offices of Jon Bryant Artz

Biography

DUI criminal defense attorney, author, and lecturer Jon Artz has specialized in DUI Defense for over 41 years, and been called "the Best DUI Lawyer in California" by ESPN Legal Analyst Roger Cossack. Mr. Artz is known throughout the California courts for winning "unwinnable" drunk driving and drug-driving cases that involve prior convictions, injury accidents, test refusals, and eye witnesses.

Mr. Artz has an AV rating from Martindale of 5.0 "Preeminent" (highest score possible) and an AVVO score of "Superb." He is one of only two lawyers whose creative trial strategies have changed the way DUI Defense Law is practiced in California. He has authored dozens of widely practiced Pre-Trial Motions (“Artz Motions”) and Special Jury Instructions that have become standard practice in CA DUI Defense, and is popular speaker on DUI defense strategies at the California DUI Lawyers Association, the California Public Defenders Association, and the California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, among other respected legal organizations.

Mr. Artz has an expert knowledge of highly technical California DUI Law and blood-alcohol science, including proving the unreliability of BAC testing equipment. He has helped over 3,200 DUI clients win difficult DUI jury trials, and has a success record over 90%, both with DUI criminal courts and with DMV civil hearings to keep his clients driving.

    Jon is one of the top legal minds in the area of DUI defense. I am a DUI attorney myself and continually go to DUI seminars to master the area. Jon is often a presenter at these seminars, and thankfully he is always willing to share his wealth of knowledge with the rest of us. Further, I go out of my way to watch Jon in trial and read transcripts from his previous trials. He sets tge bar in DUI defense.

    Jon got me an amazing deal for my second DUI. I talked to other attorneys who made big promises, but I didn’t get the sense of honesty and upfrontness I got from Jon. (One of them specializes in 2nd and 3rd DUI’s, and she said that if a case is ever too much to handle, she refers clients to Jon Artz!) The final outcome was amazing, better than what he told me. Jon made a dark, depressing situation into something that I was going to deal with and be a better person, and that’s what I’m doing.

    Jon Artz is a miracle worker. I talked to four DUI attorneys before I decided to go with Jon. I was a wreck, because I had hit a pedestrian -- I was convinced I was going to prison. Jon had me in his office for over an hour, just calming me down. He handled me with kid gloves throughout the process, answered all my questions, and did exactly what he said he would do. I don’t know how he got the charge down to a misdemeanor. And he was also so incredibly kind. I really feel he saved my life.

    I was told Jon Artz is the best DUI lawyer in LA, and now I see why. The two other lawyers I met with were a little too slick for me. Jon was a straight shooter, and confident he could win in a full-blown trial. It was scary, but you can’t help trust him, he knows DUI inside out. He was amazing with the jury, and he turned THEIR blood expert against them! Bottom line: all charges were dropped!!! I’m driving again. Seriously. Don’t risk your life to save a few bucks. This is the guy you want.
