Handling serious crimes & DUI throughout Southern California. Retired police sergeant, court designated DUI/FST expert, past county bar association president. Over 70 years combined experience.

Top-notch criminal defense attorney for all San Bernardino, Riverside, San Diego and Los Angeles County courthouses, including the Murrieta Southwest Justice Center, Banning, Fontana, Joshua Tree, Barstow and Victorville. Los Angeles DUI Lawyer Michael Scafiddi enjoys an ideal background for defending those accused of crimes: he's a former police officer and police sergeant. Attorney Scafiddi uses the real-life experience and insight he gained in law enforcement now to serve his criminal defense clients.

As a police officer, Mr. Scafiddi investigated a wide range of criminal cases from DUI to child abuse to robbery to carjacking. He gained a reputation as a straightforward and honest, yet relentless crime-solver. Additionally, as a police officer, Mr. Scafiddi was personally involved as an investigator in over 2,000 arrests for DUI in 80s and 90s. In 1981, Mr. Scafiddi was designated a gang expert by the Superior Courts of the State of California. Mr. Scafiddi has testified over 150 times as a gang expert. In 1987, Mr. Scafiddi was recognized by the Superior Court of the County of San Bernardino as a certified Drug Recognition Expert (DRE). It is this type of practical experience that makes Mr. Scafiddi a successful criminal defense litigator.

    Mr. Scafiddi did an excellent job for my son in a very difficult case. He is very hard working and was always very prepared. He was always available to answer any of our questions at any time. He explained everything that was being done for my son's case. He treated my son as if he was his own son. He helped our family through a very difficult situation. Not only was Mr. Scafiddi my son's lawyer but he is now a very close friend of our family. I would recommend Mr. Scafiddi to anyone.

    I came to Mr. Scafiddi in August of 2011 after being arrested in the Temecula wine country for DUI. I was out with my wife and two friends, had 2 glasses of wine over a 2 hour period, and I was stopped by a CHP officer after leaving a winery. I failed the breath analyzer test and 1 and 1/2 hours later tested a 0.1 with a blood test. Michael was able to prove utilizing expert testimony that I had a rising BAC that was below 0.08 at the time I was driving.

    Michael A. Scafiddi is the most conscientious attorneys I have ever met. In addition to knowing the law and procedure, he genuinely cares about all of his clients and works tirelessly to ensure full preparation for any court appearance or conference.
