    • I contacted Lawrence Taylor's Irvine office after being arrested for a DUI in Garden Grove. Mr. Taylor came up first when I searched for DUI lawyers in OC. Hiring Mr. Taylor has made it so much easier for me to move forward after such an unfortunate incident. They were able to handle everything for me without me having to ever come out to court and I was always updated with new information as soon as things came up. With a clean record, I can't be happier with Mr. Taylor's services!

    • When I received my first DUI offense, I was in distressed and in a world of new trouble. I had no clue as to what I had gotten myself into, but what I did know was that I had to hire an attorney quick. My first lawyer was unsuccessful and only after my money, so I found myself searching to escape the awful experience. I then decided to take advice from my brother in-law, who is a police office, and hired the Law Firm of Lawrence Taylor. What an entirely different experience! They literally guided me through the entire process, meticulously took me through each step, and assured that I was fully engaged and understood the process. They also provided me with all the contact numbers I needed to get my life back as it used to be. They kept me up to date with details of my case, never neglected my calls or voicemails, and excelled in customer service. Once the trial came about, my beliefs that the Law Firm would continue to excel and do the best for me came true as they pushed through their full potential and handed me the results I wanted. With a BAC of 1.5 I walked away with a wet reckless. Thank you Lawrence Taylor

    • Good Law Firm, 2nd DUI, but got my license back, no jail time. Way better than my first lawyer.

    • You should never drink and drive anywhere, but especially don't do it in la Jolla! Cops down here have nothing better to do then make your life miserable. It is also a college town which adds assault to injury. I should take my own advice because I was recently arrested for a DUI down in La Jolla. A friend of mine referred me to Mr. Taylor's office and I am extremely glad I got into contact with them. I hardly blew over the legal limit and did perfectly fine on the sobriety tests but still was arrested. Thankfully Mr. Taylor was able to help fight my case without me ever having to go to court and I was able to have the charges dropped. Extremely professional law firm with the experience to get you the results you want.

    • I don't even know where to begin with what an amazing choice this firm turned out to be. First let me say that although this was my first DUI ever, it was a difficult and complicated case to say the very least. Mr. Chris Taylor made this awful time from my horrible mistake as easy as was possible to navigate through and finally resolve. His knowledge of the courts and his relationships from working with them for so long and so often clearly helped me out, he knows all the players by name from his time working there in the past. In fact that's how I was led to hire him. A friend of a friend currently works as a public defender and when the time came she said if it was her family member in my situation she would unquestionably seek out this firms help instead of even thinking of the public defenders office. She was right. I'm confident I'll never need this sort of help again, but I'd recommend him without hesitation to any of my friends or family for sure.

    • Mr. Taylor and his team are extremely professional letting me know that I was in the best of hands. I was in a very difficult situation and had no idea what to expect and how it was going to affect my life. They were able to guide me every step of the way to help me feel confident and at ease. The work that Mr. Taylor and his firm has done helped me keep my record DUI free; something I am truly grateful for.

    • Lawrence Taylor truly saved me. He and his firm lived up to their reputation as #1 and more. To be honest, I didn’t expect to get more than handling my court and DMV dates. But they were sincerely caring of my situation, and showed every effort to speak to me personally and get to know me. Best of all, they were able to get that DUI off of my record and get my license back. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Taylor and his staff to anyone in a situation like I was.

    • They set my mind at ease during a difficult time and not only made me feel safe, but kept me out of a potentially horrible situation. I couldn’t have asked for a better DUI lawyer.

    • From the moment I was in need of a DUI lawyer and found Taylor’s firm, I began to feel at ease. Not only is the entire staff helpful, but they’re genuinely caring and responsive. These guys created a level of expertise other lawyers should be striving for.

    • After that one dreadful incident, I knew i needed to find the best firm possible for DUI defense. After shopping around for the best defense in town. I was able to find Jared from the LT's firm and couldn't be more greatful for his dedication and work. The DUI charges were aquitted and I could not be any happier!
