Biography

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.

Legal Answers
11 Questions Answered
Q. Can I get a wet reckless charge instead of a dui charge?
A: Perhaps! It depends on many factors. Look at the yelp reviews of various attorneys, and see if s/he has clients that had similar cases with a .12 BAC reduced or dismissed. Many blessings to you!
Q. got a dui in September, plead not guilty on my arraignment hearing. I was 0.12 bac, complaint and first offense.
A: The good news is that you have a moderate alleged BAC. A criminal conviction, depending on whether it's a DUI conviction, or something lesser, can affect your employment, your driver's license status and many other things. Find the best attorney you can right now to help you and protect you! I wish you the very best with your situation!
Q. I'm afraid I will be charged with child endangerment and neglect
A: It is very possible that you will be charged, depending on all the circumstances (including any prior neglect allegations). You should contact a good attorney asap in your area to analyze this further, with all the specifics. I wish you the very best with this situation.
