The Best Attorney in the Truckee/Tahoe Area
I called Jude after researching the best criminal defense attorneys in Truckee / Tahoe. He responded to my call immediately and set up a consultation. During our consultation at his office, he was very upfront and honest about my case. He did not make any false promises about the outcome and made everything about the court processes very clear and easy to understand. Which was extremely helpful. Jude has excellent communication skills. Every call and email was responded to promptly, usually within a few hours. Jude has a great reputation in the community and was a former prosecutor for Truckee / Tahoe DA’s office, and has an in-depth understanding of how cases are prosecuted in this area in specific. He went the extra mile to supeona and review all evidence and findings in my case. Resulting in what I consider the most lenient outcome with the DA and the presiding Judge possible. Instead of being incarcerated, I received 3 years probation and very generously suspended fines. At the end of the day, Jude did not promise me an exaggerated outcome, he was very honest about the factors of my case in specific. He was able to work to get me a very leinient outcome because of his knowledge and hard work. In my opinion Jude was worth every penny paid. I would recommend him to any person in the Truckee / Tahoe area facing criminal prosecution.

Friendly & Thourough
In October of 2018, I was stopped and arrested for DUI right at/under the legal limit. The very first thing I did was search for a DUI attorney in the Truckee area, and Jude's name was top of the list. Everyone I spoke to highly recommended his practice. His price was more than fair and away we went with the legal process. Throughout, Jude kept me aptly informed as to what was transpiring with my case and where we stood. After a couple months of, what was for me, easy going, we were able to settle for a wet and reckless charge. This came with a small court fee, no jail, no community service, no AA. Then, Jude went to battle against the CA DMV on my behalf, which we were sure we would lose and my license would be suspended. However, thanks to how thorough and knowledgeable Jude is, I was able to keep my driving privilege and did not have to face any negative repercussions from the DMV. Now, while I would have hoped to have the entire case cleared with no conviction whatsoever, the issue really came down to cost and my lack of funding to continue to proper trial. This is in no way a reflection on Jude and his practice. He kept me informed as to the costs of everything and we did not proceed any further unless I said go. He did his absolute best for me and I am more than happy with the outcome. I highly recommend his practice and will be enlisting his services in the future for record clearing. Thank you Jude!!!

Peace of Mind
I contacted Jude first thing on a Sunday morning after my DUI arrest, which I was completely freaked out about. He took the time to walk me through the process and did not rush through my questions. He was extremely knowledgeable and put my mind at ease so I hired him on the spot.
Throughout the process, Jude was easily accessible and responded quickly if I needed anything specific. Thankfully my case ended up being dismissed because I was under the legal limit, but I would recommend Jude to any of my friends or family if they got into the same predicament as me.
