Experienced California DUI Defense Attorney On Your Side
John Stanko is devoted to the defense of clients who have been charged with traffic ticket offenses, DUI, and other crimes in the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California. 

If you are arrested you have the right to remain silent and consult a criminal defense lawyer. The sooner you call an experienced lawyer, the better. John Stanko offers a free initial consultation to discuss your case with you personally and confidentially.

Mr. Stanko's practice includes the defense of those charged with drunk driving (DUI), traffic ticket offenses (moving violations), and most other criminal charges, including felonies and misdemeanors, such as theft crimes (burglary or robbery), domestic violence, assault and battery and drug sales or possession. He also assists clients with post-conviction matters including the expungement (dismissal) of their cases.

Attorney John Stanko believes you owe it to yourself to talk to a criminal defense attorney who knows the law. Remember, he says, "You are innocent until proven guilty. Don't be a victim of illegal arrests, illegal charges, exaggerated charges and false evidence. I have established an impressive track record of helping clients avoid jail and getting on with their lives."
