    • I recommend John Thygerson.

    Most of us do not expect to ever need the services of a criminal defense attorney, so when that need arises, most of us don’t know where to turn. John Thygerson was recommended to me by another attorney. I recommend him to you. Here’s why:

    Unlike most legal issues most of us confront, the criminal justice system does not even pretend to be a level playing field. The government has infinite resources. You do not. The stakes are enormous for you, but just another day at work for the prosecutor. The odds against you are huge--whether you are guilty or not. You are the least capable person in the (court) room. Put bluntly, you can’t afford the defense you would like to have.

    John Thygerson defended me for a flat fee. He probably did not anticipate the State would delay my “speedy trial” for 5 ½ years, or that I would reject every “plea bargain” offered. He prepared my defense. He filed motions. He calmed down my wife. He came to court, prepared to defend me, over and over and over again, only to have the State request adjournments, over and over again.

    Ultimately, the case was dismissed because the State decided it could not win, no matter how long it delayed. John Thygerson was able to level the playing field for me.

    You want a criminal defense attorney who can level the playing field for you at a cost you can afford. It’s not “cheap” -- but when it comes to your freedom, the last thing you want is a “cheap” defense.

    I recommend John Thygerson without reservation.

    • I recommend John Thygerson.

    Attorney Thygerson has represented several of my family members for various charges ranging from motor vehicle infractions to behavioral misdemeanors. In each case John was quick to respond, effective and considerate. He would clearly explain the ramifications of a given situation and advise on the best strategy with which to proceed.

    Attorney Thygerson is highly respected by the officers of the court and has an uncanny ability to asses the likelihood of what court officers might expect and would formulate a response that was eventually embraced by the prosecution and the court. John did not, however, capitulate to unreasonable prosecutorial demands when he believed they were overreaching, or simply wrong in their assessment of the situation.

    John continues to represent members of my family and if necessary will represent them in the future. I have, and would, highly recommend attorney Thygerson to anyone who needs expert and effective legal representation.

    • I recommend John Thygerson.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Speeding / Traffic Ticket matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was facing a mandatory 30 days for a motor vehicle infraction. Mandatory usually mean mandatory but John Thygerson used some legal strategies that saved me from what I thought was inevitable sentence. I can't say enough about what he did for me and wouldn't hesitate to use him again. He truly goes to bat for you.

    • I hired John 6-12 months ago.
    • John handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    John did an amazing job of calming my fears after an accident and the threat of DUI arrest. He educated me on what the process would be and I could see he was very well versed in DUI defense. John worked with the police and was able to get the case dropped without arrest. I would highly recommend John's attorney services.

    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Due to a domestic incident with my ex-girlfriend who came to my house and caused trouble, I was also arrested and charged with two offences, including breach of the peace. I felt that these were completely unfair and I consulted with Mr Thygerson after reading his outstanding reviews. I can only concur with those ,as he immediately allayed my concerns. After giving him full details, the charges were dropped at my next hearing. Enormous relief and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

  6. Well worth contacting Mr. Thygerson if you are ever in need of legal assistance.

    Mr. Thygerson was exceptionally helpful in regards to my court case. I was nervous as I've never been to court. He eased my nerves by answering my numerous questions. He was available 24 hours a day for me as well! And importantly he was kind towards me and didn't belittle me or my case. He was very respectful towards me as well. I have alot of respect for this hard-working man. Overall Mr. Thygerson was extremely generous with his time. I'm grateful for his help. A good man!!

    It would be a mistake not to hire Mr. Thygerson, he will undoubtedly work hard for you!

    This lawyer was very informative and quick with regards to taking legal action with the case. He changed the court date that worked best for the both of us and told me what exactly I need to bring on the date. Showed up in court for me and nailed a homerun. I was facing a very difficult reckless driving ticket with speeds in the triple digits. I was very nervous and scared but with his knowledge and approach he had no issues getting that taken care of for me. Case well done recommend to anyone facing some serious stuff.
