Biography

Specialties

Craig Sturm is a DUI specialist and instructor in SFST and breath machine used at arrest. He is certified to operate and analyze all breath and blood machines used in LA and Orange counties.  Some types of criminal cases don't demand specialized knowledge. Certain types, such as DUI cases, do. Although, DUIs have become the number one crime in the United States, it has become an extremely complex area of the law. Some DUI cases are even more difficult than handling murder cases because of the lower burden of proof.  In a murder case, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant is guilty.  In a DUI case, the defendant is assumed guilty based on their blood or breath tests. A complete defense requires command of principles of chemistry, biology and physics, and familiarity with hundreds of scientific studies.

History

Established in 2002.

While attending law school, Sturm started off as a law clerk at the Los Angeles County Public Defender's office. The minute he walked through the doors into a courtroom, he realized, criminal defense was the only thing he wanted to do. Right out of law school, he was lucky enough to be offered an attorney position at the LA County Public Defender's office. Sturm gained irreplaceable trial experience during his 5 years working as a Public Defender. Sturm then went on to managing one of the largest Criminal Defense firms in the State of California as a Senior Trial Attorney.  In 2009, Craig Sturm opened his private practice, Sturm Law.  Stum has always been on the defense side and he's proud of it!

"I distinguish myself from the majority of other attorneys handling DUI cases by further focusing my practice on continually learning the best and most effective ways to beat the government's vast array of scientific evidence. I seek out and travel to numerous hard to find, out-of-state, multi-day seminars and training focused on how to beat the government's scientific evidence on a monthly basis.  Furthermore, I have become an instructor myself furthering my knowledge by teaching others. I pride myself in mastering my field and educating those whom I come in contact with.  Most of the people I defend are by large good people. They are professional people with good values and are often extraordinary citizens who make positive contribution for the good of society.  People make mistakes, my goal is to help all my client move past that."
