Tucson DUI Attorney Recommendations

If you were recently arrested for DUI in Tucson or Pima County, or you know someone who was, you’re probably trying to figure out how to find the best DUI attorney to fight the charges.  There are a lot of DUI attorneys in Tucson who will take your case, but you need to do a little homework before hiring any of them.  Obviously, you want someone who has experience in criminal defense and, in particular, handling DUI cases.  DUI law can be very complex, often involves scientific evidence and expert witnesses, and is constantly changing.  You also want someone with a track record in the courtroom who can try your case if it comes to that.  Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you want someone who you feel comfortable with and who will give your case the personal attention it deserves.  Talking to different attorneys can give you a sense of this, but it’s also important to look at what former clients have said.  Thats where DUI attorney recommendations and reviews come in.

Real reviews from real clients speak volumes about a DUI attorney’s service.  If you see an overwhelming number of reviews over a relatively short period of time, you have to wonder if they are genuine.  An individual attorney can only effectively handle a certain number of cases at any one time and not every happy client goes to the trouble of leaving a review.  But if you see consistent positive reviews over the years, that’s a strong indicator that you’ve found a good DUI attorney who cares about his clients.

I’m proud to have had clients leave me very positive reviews over the years.  It gives me a sense of accomplishment knowing that I was able to help these people get through a difficult time in their lives.  It’s important to my business that every client is well-served because a lot of my cases are referrals from former clients.  Here are some of the things my client’s have said:

Tucson DUI Attorney Recommendations


“Nathan Leonardo was recommended to me by another attorney.  I am VERY pleased with Nathan Leonardo. . .  He was responsive to all my inquiries (and I had plenty).  He communicated with me and included me in the entire process. . . I recommend Nathan Leonardo highly.  Your rights will be protected by a competent professional.”

— C.W.

“Mr. Leonardo did an excellent job representing me during my DUI case.  With his help all my charges were dismissed during a jury trial.  Without his help I would have probably accepted a plea bargain. . .  I would highly recommend his services.”

— S.M.

“Top notch legal expertise and advice!  Mr. Leonardo was truly compassionate and professional in assisting me with my legal issues.  I spoke with a few other attorneys and Mr. Leonardo was by far the highest qualified and the best.  He is upfront, fair, and honest being a former federal litigator and member of the military.  I felt comfortable speaking with him and believe he is a genuinely good person.  I highly recommend him!”

— Rick

“In all my dealings with him I felt that he cared about the outcome of my trial. I had complete trust in all his decisions.  He was very knowledgeable and kept me informed. . .  I would not hesitate to hire him to represent me again if I ever needed an attorney for any matter.”

— Johnie

“Mr. Leonardo is a man of outstanding dedication and tenacity.  When I came to Mr. Leonardo with my DUI case, I was neither privy to the state laws nor the overall court proceedings.  He helped educate me on the charges I was facing and the legal steps that would be taken with regard to such charges.  Furthermore, I felt he was actually invested in the outcome of my case.  Through Mr. Leonardo’s tireless efforts and professionalism, my entire DUI case was dismissed without going to trial.  If you need someone to fight for you in the legal system, Mr. Leonardo is the man for the job.”

— F.L.

“Nathan was always professional as well as non-judgmental.  He knew what he was doing and I felt very comfortable working with him throughout the court proceedings.  He returned my calls promptly and answered any questions I may have had.  He was always willing to meet in person as well.  I knew I was in good hands with Nathan Leonardo.”

— K.Y.


I may be able to help you too.  I offer a confidential, no obligation case evaluation.  We can sit down — in person or over the phone — discuss your case, get your questions answered, and figure out whether I can help.  This is important.  You owe it to yourself to at least consult with an experienced Tucson DUI attorney before making any decisions with regard to your case.  You can call me at (520) 314-4125 or contact me online to schedule an appointment.
