Jesse Adriance

San Diego DUI Lawyer


After earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of San Diego, San Diego native Jesse Adriance received his Juris Doctorate from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in 2006.

Mr. Adriance had gained extensive legal experience prior to opening his own firm. While working for an extremely well-regarded civil defense firm, Mr. Adriance decided that his true calling was in assisting individuals. To further this end, Mr. Adriance interned at a well-respected DUI firm in San Diego before receiving his law license. Upon becoming a licensed attorney, Mr. Adriance soon thereafter founded Adriance Law.

Mr. Adriance has successfully assisted clients with felony DUI cases and worked directly with the San Diego County City Attorney’s Office, District Attorneys, and the Department of Motor Vehicles Hearing Officers, commissioners and judges, during which he has gained first-hand negotiation and strategic trial process expertise.

Today, Mr. Adriance focuses exclusively on DUI clients and is an expert in all phases of a DUI defense, including DMV requirements and licensing issues, insurance concerns, court procedures, termination of probation and expungements. In addition to practicing in all courts in San Diego County, Mr. Adriance has travelled to Sacramento in order to handle DUI hearings. This firsthand knowledge of the DUI process is a critical resource in protecting the rights of those accused of crimes and helping them to get their lives back on track.

Mr. Adriance is licensed to practice law in all the California State courts and the United States District Court, Southern District. He is active in the defense community and is a member in good standing of the National College of DUI Defense, the California DUI Lawyers Association, the San Diego County Bar Association, and the American Bar Association.

Further, Mr. Adriance holds a valid California Department of Insurance Producer’s license, and as a Trusted Traveler, is a member of SENTRI, Global Entry, TSA Pre-Check, and a holder of an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) ABTC, thus entitling Mr. Adriance to Diplomatic Passage abroad.
