“I had no worries or stress the entire time.”
I had the greatest pleasure to have William represent me for my DUI case. This was my first DUI and William helped me through the process with ease. Throughout the whole process, William took care of everything and explained all the details to me as they arose. It was a breeze with William’s help, I had no worries or stress the entire time. Thanks again for the awesome work William! Made this nightmare much easier to deal with.

“He goes way above and beyond to do the right thing.”
The worst night of my life was when I got a DUI. Scared, shamed, guilt are words that didn’t even come close to how I felt. I had no idea where to go, or what to do. William Walraven was referred to me and I made that call.
From the get-go, through my hysterics, he was kind, and supportive, extremely knowledgeable and clear, holding nothing back about what could happen, so no surprises. William collected my information and got busy representing me. He was always truthful of possible outcomes and explained each step via phone and I always asked for an email as well because I just couldn’t absorb all the legal implications in one sitting.
He goes way above and beyond to do the right thing. Explained exactly what I ought to do, and I did exactly what he suggested every step of the way. He never made me feel those feelings of shame or guilt, not once. Always, kind and compassionate, honest, and with such integrity.
I am not really good at expressing my gratitude (well in this situation, that I never thought I’d be in) so just know, without a doubt, I recommend William to anyone in this situation, a man full of compassion, integrity, honesty, knowledgeable, and well, I just can’t say enough about how he walked (and is walking) me through this horrible mistake I made. God didn’t give me words to adequately express my gratitude.
“He was clear about what could and couldn’t be done.”
William was a tremendous help in dealing with a difficult situation. At all times he was clear about what could and couldn’t be done, how he expected the case to unfold, and what I needed to do. And he delivered 100%.
“You can trust him.”
After contacting the top recommended DUI attorney in San Mateo I was given the option to post my time sensitive question to similar law firms in the area. Given that my friend had court the following day and was unprepared, I rolled the dice. I was blown away by William when he contacted me to respond. He called me personally and gave me his number and a time to reach him. Once we were connected he listened patiently and provided me with the options my friend would have as well as giving me an honest opinion.
As someone who has advanced experience working with attorneys professionally, as well as personal experience retaining my own lawyers for various reasons in life, the genuine empathy and care that William delivered over a phone call was only comparable to advice I receive from my closest friends who are attorneys when I need direction. He was upfront about the possibilities that could take place and forthright about the costs for each avenue. His straightforward answers were so helpful and he even gave me options for my friend that were not financially in his favor. To put it frankly, he didn’t push any false or negative storyline in order for us to retain him. He was amazing, patient and detail-oriented. He was everything you want in a lawyer – polite and professional, someone with logical reasoning and empathetic communication.
At the end of our talk he even told me where to go once I was in the courthouse and which screen to look for in order to find the room. I told him then and I mean it now that if I ever needed an attorney for myself I would call him. I do not leave reviews but I believe that credit should be given where deserved and I just cannot let this go unnoticed. You can trust him.
