Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&AResponsive Law

Attorney Thomas Fleming graduated from Yale Law School and UC Berkeley; taught as an Adjunct Professor of Law at Law School; taught criminal trial skills, in DUI and criminal cases, to future prosecutors and defense attorneys; and taught UC Berkeley undergraduate law classes about the U.S. Constitution, the courts and politics for over 20 years.

Thomas also served the community, in DUI and criminal cases, for over two decades as a Trial Attorney with the Public Defender. He successfully took many, many cases to jury trials, and developed a very special expertise in defending against DUI and criminal charges.

Thomas earned a reputation for consistently winning very excellent results for his clients in DUI and Criminal cases.

It is quite traumatic to face the serious consequences of a potential DUI or criminal conviction. Thomas' combination of (1) academic knowledge of the law, (2) his excellent record in defending against DUI and criminal charges, and (3) his background of spirituality, non-judgement, honesty and his sense of mercy and compassion -- all make an extremely persuasive and effective advocate.

He cannot take every case but invites you to contact him for a free consultation.
