    • Jon Artz keeps 99% of his clients out of jail and driving.


    • Jon Artz wrote the book on California DUI Law. Mr. Artz is one of the authors of “California Drunk Driving Law,” the “bible” of California DUI Defense, and the creator of dozens of legal Motions and Jury Instructions that have become standard practice for California DUI Defense.


    • Jon Artz has been working as a DUI Lawyer in Los Angeles for 47 years. Mr. Artz has specialized in California drunk driving and “drug driving” DUI defense since 1972, and is a preeminent, popular speaker on DUI Law and DUI Jury Trial strategies with California’s most prestigious bench and bar associations.


    • Jon Artz is an expert in Alternative Sentencing.

    • Jon Artz knows how to win difficult DUI trials as a defense attorney. Most Los Angeles DUI attorneys settle their DUI cases out of court via plea bargaining rather than take the case to trial.

Mr. Artz’ outstanding reputation with prosecutors gives him an advantage over other DUI attorneys in Los Angeles: the prosecutors are more willing to make pre-trial concessions to Mr. Artz’ clients in order to avoid an expensive, public trial that they know they will probably lose.


    • Jon Artz is an expert in blood-alcohol science. Mr. Artz has an expert-level understanding of blood alcohol chemistry and the various technologies used to measure and detect blood alcohol and drug content, and he skillfully uses that knowledge to weaken the prosecution’s case.
