Outstanding Trial Attorney!

I am in the military and a DUI conviction would have had severe negative effects on my career. Because of Mr. Wapner's efforts I was found not guilty at a jury trial. Terry is the most experienced and knowlegable DUI attorney in the San Joaquin valley area. His knowledge of the technical aspects of DUI defense will leave the DA extremely under-prepared. He can explain complicated legal issues and gain the trust of the jury. The effort that Terry put in to my case was top-notch. You cannot find a better DUI attorney. He is a true professional in the courtroom.

Myth: “There is nothing that a Fresno DUI defense lawyer can do.” Truth: Absolutely not true. Over the past 7-10 years, the conviction rate in California for DUI's is only around 70 percent. That means that 30 percent of the charges are being reduced to charges that are less than a DUI charge or not guilty verdicts are being returned. I have the ability and have won Fresno DUI cases. Do not give in to despair and believe that you are destined to lose. Entering a guilty plea to a DUI charge when the evidence against you can be challenged may result in an expensive mistake that could haunt you in the long run.
