Thomas Fleming saved my life!!! What can I say about Thomas Fleming other than he is an amazing lawyer. I had a lapse in judgement and was arrested for domestic violence incident. In the beginning I was lost. I hardly get in trouble so getting arrested and what follows after is something I'm not familiar with. After days of the incident and reading forums and watching YouTube vids of what could potentially happened to me I was having real bad anxiety attacks. So I went to look up a lawyer who would take my case. I emailed a couple lawyers but Thomas was the first who responded quickly. After explaining to Thomas my situation he gave me a peace of mind and knew I needed not look no further. Thomas gave me a list of things to do before my first court date. That's when good things started happening and when we went to court a slight miracle happened. Long story short after a year and 1 month later we arrived at my 4th court appearance because it kept getting pushed which wasn't a bad thing because at the end I received way less than I should've got. Thomas tirelessly worked on my case for over a year and was always there to answer any questions or just check up on me. Thomas really cares about his clients and about his work and it shows. Thomas amazed me in court many time with the knowledge he would speak in the court room towards the DA and the judge. Because of Thomas I have a second chance at life and I don't intend to ruin that chance. At first the court and DA demanded 60 days of jail time for my case. After intense negotiations Thomas convinced the court and DA of no jail time and no work details. Thomas pulled off a miracle!!!! As Thomas says, all glory goes to God! Not only did I have the best lawyer I could ask for, I believe I made a friend and a mentor I look up too. So if you're going through hard times, remember what you're going through doesn't define who you are, it's what you do after. Forgive yourself, pick yourself back up, and help others who are in need.

Attorney Thomas Fleming graduated from Yale Law School and UC Berkeley; taught as an Adjunct Professor of Law at Law School; taught criminal trial skills, in DUI and criminal cases, to future prosecutors and defense attorneys; and taught UC Berkeley undergraduate law classes about the U.S. Constitution, the courts and politics for over 20 years.

Thomas also served the community, in DUI and criminal cases, for over two decades as a Trial Attorney with the Public Defender. He successfully took many, many cases to jury trials, and developed a very special expertise in defending against DUI and criminal charges.

Thomas earned a reputation for consistently winning very excellent results for his clients in DUI and Criminal cases.

It is quite traumatic to face the serious consequences of a potential DUI or criminal conviction. Thomas' combination of (1) academic knowledge of the law, (2) his excellent record in defending against DUI and criminal charges, and (3) his background of spirituality, non-judgement, honesty and his sense of mercy and compassion -- all make an extremely persuasive and effective advocate.

He cannot take every case but invites you to contact him for a free consultation.

Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered
Q. What is it called the conversation of police and dispatch and the time line of conversation? How do I get that? Thanks
A: This is called a dispatch recording and dispatch log (written). If you have a criminal case, the easiest way is to ask your attorney to request it from the District Attorney as part of case discovery.
Q. I just recently got released from jail but im trying to get my license now but on the court paper they misspelled myname
A: I don't know the charges or facts in your case but often an officer misspelling your name on a form has nothing to do with how DMV spells your name. Go to DMV, see if your name is spelled correctly and try to obtain your license if possible. Good luck!
Q. if the mother of the pedestrian 1 takes pictures in the hospital and provides them via email can they used them
A: The short answer is sure, if she or someone authenticates the photos, and it is used in a DUI criminal case. If you are the accused, you should get an attorney and consult with the attorney about this. I wish you the very best.
