I am a successful criminal lawyer and DUI attorney with over 28 years of experience in the courtroom and experience as a former law enforcement police officer. I am proud to represent those individuals prosecuted by governmental agencies and accused of crimes.

I have been an active member of the California State Bar since 1990 and have been admitted to practice in the United States District Court Southern District of California since 1991. I received my Juris Doctorate Law Degree from the University of San Diego School of Law (USD) in 1990 and graduated from San Diego State University in 1986 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice Administration.

I know that if you are looking for a criminal lawyer or DUI attorney for yourself or a loved one, you are seeking results. Furthermore, if you do not have confidence in your criminal lawyer, you will never have confidence in the outcome or results he or she obtains for you. That is why I am "Committed to Excellence" to serve your needs and obtain your results.

Sean F. Leslie In my criminal defense and DUI practice, I have been able to obtain noteworthy outcomes at trial in serious felony and misdemeanor cases including murder, manslaughter, rape and driving under the influence (DUI) and have negotiated hundreds of plea agreements, many of which have been remarkable in their own right.

I have also persuaded prosecutors to NOT FILE charges against my clients on numerous occasions and have obtained many dismissals as a result of unlawful search and seizure challenges under the Fourth and Fifth Amendments. I have successfully handled hundreds of criminal cases from minor crimes-infractions; to mid level crimes-misdemeanors (DUI); and serious crimes including all felonies from drug possession, burglary, manslaughter, murder and a Capital [Death Penalty] Case.

In addition to pursuing and aggressively fighting to obtain justice for my clients, I have worked hard to promote justice for all people. I have served as a Judge Pro Tempore in the San Diego Superior Court and have participated in many volunteer court programs-On My Honor, Law day and others. I am proud to serve my profession and my community by fostering professionalism in the court on behalf of my clients. I have been a member of many Criminal Defense and Civil Litigation Organizations locally and abroad- CBA, ABA, ATLA, CPDA, CACJ, BANSDC, PCC, SDCBA and NACDL. As a criminal defense attorney, I have also served as President/Chair of the local criminal defense bar association and Board of Directors for the Lawyer Referral Service [LRS] and the North County Bar Association. I find it a privilege to represent individuals accused of crimes and DUI cases.

Please feel free to contact my firm and talk with me or another criminal lawyer or dui attorney with any criminal defense or DUI legal questions that you may have. I take personal responsibility in my firm's "commitment to excellence" in obtaining a favorable result on your case at any of the court locations in San Diego County including San Diego, Vista, El Cajon or Chula Vista . I look forward to hearing from and meeting you soon. Once again, thank you for consulting with my law firm for your legal representation.


Very truly yours,

Mr. Leslie is an amazing lawyer and a very nice man. I liked that he always called me back if he couldn't answer my calls. I felt that he actually cared about me and my case. He explained anything I didn't understand and I even learned a few things from him. I highly recommend him! Kasi M.
