"Jonah is a PHENOMENAL lawyer. Sometimes, good people find themselves in a tough situation. DUIs happen and when they do, they are costly, time-consuming and down-right scary as hell. My husband was charged with a second DUI involving an accident with two other motorists in SF. Luckily, no one was hurt, but he was still facing felony charges (with jail time) for having a high BAC and committing a second offense while just being shy of completing the probation period from his first DUI. We called Jonah after reading rave reviews, and can 100% say that Jonah *is* the lawyer you're looking for. RESULTS: My husband's case was dropped from a felony to a misdemeanor. He spent three days doing SWAP and avoided any jail time. He was able to drive again, sooner than expected (with an IID.) My husband's employer never found out about his DUI because Jonah coordinated his monthly court dates with his days off. We are currently looking into reducing his probation requirements now that his DUI school has been completed. This is only possible if you hire a GREAT lawyer. HOW JONAH'S DIFFERENT: - he works *directly* with you and your case - he is *very* responsive (via phone, text and email) - he has a great personality - is honest and genuinely cares about you, and funny too - he knows to share just enough with you regarding your next court date to keep you calm and collected.... he will guide you throughout your process so you can try to live as normal of a life until your case is settled - his appearance is sharp, clean and he has the mental toughness you need to win in court - and more importantly, he is one of the most well-connected criminal defense lawyers in SF. He knows the judges, public defendants and the system very, very well. Ask any one of them and they will speak of him in high regard. WHAT YOU NEED TO DO: - listen to what Jonah says and just do it. If you need to live in a residential treatment program to not only fix a problem that you may have, do it and go above and beyond. It'll be good for you personally, and the results of your case. - You will be shooting yourself in the foot if you pass on hiring Jonah. Whether it be your first, second or third DUI, Jonah knows his craft very well. Months after our case was finished, we happened to run into Jonah at a ballgame and he gave us two big hugs. (It was great seeing him outside of his suit.) If you can't already tell by all the reviews, he's practically Superman. Back in NY, we'd say he's "one, helluva guy." We are grateful for him. We don't write reviews, but created a Yelp account just so we can write one for Jonah. Hope this review helps someone who's on the fence."

"Jonah is an outstanding lawyer and person. Jonah went out of his way to meet with me, helping me thoroughly navigate the technicalities of an incident. Although the case was dismissed prior to actually having to retain his services, he went above and beyond to help me before and even AFTER the case was dismissed. Jonah's one of the few lawyers I've come across who practice law for the good of the people - not for money, nor for reputation. Tricks of the trade in finding a good lawyer? Call a few and ask them about each other; good lawyers (and people) run in the same circle - nearly every lawyer I spoke to knew or knew of Jonah and spoke respectfully of his work."

"I was in a tough spot and in need of legal advice and Mr Chew went way out of his way to give guidance to me in my time of need. In the end I did not require legal representation, but if I had I would have retained Mr Chew with every confidence. Five stars!"
-- David H.

"Jonah and his entire office were extremely helpful and went above and beyond to help me. I truly cannot recommend him high enough. He provides exceptional service at extremely reasonable rates. Not only is he a great attorney, but he is a fantastic individual who made the entire process as seamless as a legal ordeal could possibly be."

"I was involved with a con artist, and an emotional, financial, and physical abuser. He knew how to work the system and I ended up in a situation where I needed an attorney. I was referred to Jonah Chew. Jonah is responsive. He and I met the same day I contacted him. In fact, he postponed family plans to meet me late after court. He took me on as his client immediately and I just knew I was in good hands and with the best. Once I was his client, he returned my message within the hour, and if for some reason he can't, he always let me know when he could. He regularly updated me and I always had status. Jonah and his Private Investigator will exceed your expectations. Never once did they make me feel embarrassed or ashamed. They made it very clear that they represent me and went above and beyond to investigate my case and gather facts I didn't even think of. His professionalism, and warm demeanor got me through each appearance. Not to mention, he's pretty funny and always brought a smile to my face. Jonah's expertise combined with his relations with the District Attorney's office are quite impressive. Everyone that knows him has the upmost respect for him.​ Not only was my case dismissed with no record, I now have a lifetime attorney and friend.​​ You want Jonah Chew to defend you.​"
-- Christine K.

"This was my first experience with an attorney and from the start Jonah laid out his plan of defense and made sure I was actively engaged for the entire process. I was falsely charged with a felony and he made sure that I was always well informed about the steps he was taking to fight this charge. I could call him at any time, including nights and weekends, and he would take the time to calm my anxieties and explain to me exactly what was going on at all times. I cannot recommend his services highly enough!"
-- Peter S.

"Overview: Exceptional Experience... This review is for Jonah Chew. This was our family's first experience with a lawyer. With so many options and the difficult circumstances of the case, it seemed daunting to settle for ONE attorney to advocate for our family member. Based on a combination of Jonah's experience and education, track record, professionalism, and personality we trusted him as the most qualified for the best outcome; we do not regret our decision! Jonah guided us through the entire process, giving us invaluable advice and instilling confidence even before we officially hired him. Jonah is very reliable and responsive; you'll never have to wait long to hear back from him through phone, text, or email. The Case: Multiple DUI's... This 2nd DUI, within a 10-year period, resulted in an auto-collision. Our family member had a (potential) 3rd DUI that fell out of the 10-year period, but nonetheless was unfavorable as it is still on the driving record. The Outcome: A Very Favorable Sentence... Jonah and his team achieved the most favorable sentence considering the circumstances. In lieu of jail time and a hefty fine, the sentence included: 8 days of community service, a reasonable fine, completion of an 18-month OHS program, and license suspension (unavoidable) for just 1 year. Note: Jonah also successfully negotiated the removal of an expensive alcohol-monitoring (SCRAM) device."

For my case, he would explain what's coming from the insurance and what to expect. Very very helpful. Everything is transparent. I would highly recommend him to anyone and definitely think he's one of the best in the bay area."
