Designated a 2020-2021 SuperLawyer™ by his attorney peers and judges, partner Craig Sturm brings 20 years of DUI, drugged driving, and criminal defense success to Artz & Sturm Law Group. Sturm began his career as an LA County Public Defender, defending individuals in assault, domestic violence, theft, firearms, possession, and DUI drugs and alcohol cases. He later added “big firm” criminal defense experience at Kavinoky Law Firm, one of the largest DUI firms in California, where he became Trial Managing Attorney of the largest DUI firm in California.

Craig Sturm has specialized in drunk/drugged driving defense for almost two decades, and is known throughout Los Angeles and Orange County for his successful motions, reduced PreTrial charges, and for winning difficult DUI and criminal trials, including receiving a not-guilty verdict on a DUI murder trial. He is trained in all breath machines used in LA and Orange County, and is the only DUI attorney who has received extensive training in both the Datamaster DMT and the EC/IR II, the two breath machines used in the City of Los Angeles. Sturm is also trained in the ALS Laboratory and Gas Chromatography blood machines.
