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.

John was a reliable resource for our family. He made himself available at all times. He has a multitude of knowledge and uses it to guide you to a smooth resolution. If I needed an attorney, I would call John Thygerson. He understands what you are going through and will be there for you.

John came to me via referral from other attorneys. He represented me with regard to tickets related to a traffic accident with a police officer. John was very up-front on what to expect from the magistrate hearing and trial de novo. When it came time to present during the trial de novo, John was prepared and very experienced in the courtroom with the judge. In the end, we obtained a successful verdict. I would recommend John without hesitation to a friend.

I hired John to represent me after my first attorney was getting nowhere with the prosecutors in convincing them of my innocence. I got the impression that the attorney I first hired did not have a good relationship with the prosecutors, even though he swore to me he did. After hiring John, there was an immediate change in the attitude of the prosecutors and it appeared as though real progress was being made in my case. John was patient and he took the time to interview witnesses which was crucial to my case. The end result: the charges were dropped!!! He did a great job explaining everything to me and always took the time to talk to me, unlike my first lawyer who just wanted me to use a program to get rid of my case and acted as if I was an imposition to him when I questioned his strategy. I will always refer Mr. Thygerson to anyone who needs an attorney in criminal court!

Within the first 5 minutes I knew Mr.Thygerson would represent me. His presense is commanding and his knowledge was so impressive I didn't have to meet any other attorney. Throughout the whole process he took charge and kept me well informed. Very detailed and knows the system extremely well. The judge and prosecutor knew him well and there was no doubt a respect for Mr. Thygerson. He will go the extra mile when he has to. I would use My Thygerson over and over again. You won't be disappointed.

John represented me on multiple occasions over the years. Each time John delivered the results I hoped for. In fact, whenever anyone in my family gets in trouble, he is the only one we turn to for advice and help. He has never let us down. He fights hard, and takes the time to maximize results. I would refer him to anyone in trouble with the law. He can be a pit bull when called for and compassionate as well. He was extremely patient representing my grandfather in a case where the charges were ultimately dropped and my grandfather can be a real pain in the ***. John kept his cool and got the job done. He is simply the best.

After being arrested for suspicion of a DUI and facing months in prison and a felony on my record I turned to John Thygerson and from the moment we first spoke on the phone to the moment all charges were dismissed John was a consummate professional. He understands the anxiety and confusion situations like this can create and does everything in his power to both achieve the best results and make the entire process as frictionless as possible. I recommend John P. Thygerson without hesitation.

Attorny Thygerson has represented me in two cases. Both were serious felonies. I was quite scared about going to jail (I was stupid in doing what I did). Each time John took the time to listen to me (and he read me the riot act after the second arrest) and he came up with a game plan that left me with no record! The entire time he was patient with me and took the time to work with me so that I not only have no criminal record but, because of the counselling he got me to take, I believe I won't be making the mistakes that led to my arrests.
I have also refered him to my friends and he has gotten them amazing results to. He really is an all around good guy who cares for his clients.

John has been great and continues to support and guide me through an extremely painful period in my life. He has fought hard for me and is dedicated to continuing to do so until the end. He is respectful, smart, kind, generous and gives 100%

Mr. Thygerson is one of the most knowledgable and competent lawyers providing professional legal services in the areas of criminal and civil litigation in the State of Connecticut and beyond. He is also very responsive to his clients' needs and and straightforward in his approach and conduct of business. John Thygerson was successful in defending our son and in proving his innocence in a misdemeanor case involving DUI. Our whole family is very grateful to him.

I first hired Attorney Thygerson to represent an employee of mine who was in serious trouble. Honestly, my employee and I thought that jail was going to be the only outcome. But John managed to not only keep my guy out of jail but more importantly kept him from having any record at all. Since then he has been the attorney of choice for all of my employees and always busts his butt to get the best possible result. Never had a bad experience with him.

Given that the legal system can at times be intimidating and shrouded in legalize (an understatement) it was important that I be made comfortable with the process. John's ability to demystify the challenges associated with my case were crucial to my understanding of the legal process and the role he played. I attributed the outcome of the case to his legal experience, strength of character and personal integrity. At no time during the process did I ever feel he was not being completely honest and forthright. In the end everything worked out fine.

I hired Mr. Thygerson to represent me in a case after I was arrested for DWI and giving a false statement. Prosecutors wanted jail. I wasn't drunk, but nobody believed me and cops claim I failed road side tests and didn't blow into machine hard enough. Mr Thygerson took my case after my first attorney had a conflict. Mr. Thygerson destroyed cops on the stand, showed they didn't follow proper procedure and proved breath machine wasn't working right. Brutally cross examined chief of police down to arresting officer! Jury declared me not guilty after 2 hours of deliberating. He was a master of the court and dind't back down to anyone. I am so glad he was there for me!

John represented me a few years back after I was charged with a dwi. His help in guiding me through the whole process, which is unnerving to say the least, was very thourough. He was discreet, informative and promptly returned phone calls, which always seems to be a problem with other lawyers I have used in the past. Also, he successfully kept the DMV from suspending my license which I understand does not happen all to often. A genuinely good guy and I am pleased with the referral I was given to him

John has helped me out on more than one occassion. Each time the quality of service he provided surpassed my expectations. In one case, I was almost certain that jail was the only outcome I was facing, but John's determination and creative lawyering resulted in a disposition that involved payment of a fine only!! I recommend him without any reservation whatsoever. An awesome lawyer and someone who I will always turn to in the future

I have known John since Law School. John represented my in a criminal matter where the local police were overly aggressive in seeking charges. John was able to have the charges dismissed and my record cleared, including a successful appeal with a state agency.

John Thygerson without a doubt is one of the most composed professionals I have ever had the pleasure of working with. John is very thorough, he is always there for you whenever you need him and quite frankly I would highly recommend him as an attorney to anyone that has any needs for excellent representation. He has always been a very special friend to me and a mentor to say the least. John doesn't specialize in just one area of the law but all areas.

John has worked for me on several difficult cases. His results have always been outstanding and in my favor. His understanding of the law, the system and the players in the system set him above all else. I can truly say that not only do I consider John a great lawyer but also a great friend who will go above and beyond for you. I would not hesitate to use him or recommend him for any legal matter. In fact I do all the time.

John is my go to guy whenever I, or any friend, is in trouble in Fairfield County. On more than one occasion he has represented me in criminal court and has always done so with skill, grace and passion. Always returns phone calls ( which is a rarity in the legal profession) and will do whatever he can to obtain the result necessary. I have been so pleased with his work, that I have referred family members and employees to him, and have had nothing but positive feedback. In my opinion, he is the guy to call if you are in trouble with the law.

Personal attention, returned phone calls, attention to detail; these are the hallmarks of his representation. He realizes that criminal court can be extremely intimidating and daunting and ensures that the entire process is as smooth and anxiety free as possible. Having him as my advocate made the entire process more bearable and I could not be more happy with the results obtained,

Super knowledgeable. Straight forward . He helped out my aging parents with some trust issues, great experience, recommend him highly.

I have found myself, from time to time, getting in trouble requiring appearing in court. Each time I turned to John who, without fail, obtained the results I desired in a most professional and, importantly, efficient manner. I could not have been more pleased with the results and have referred him to friends who have also had the same experience. I recommend his services without reservation.

There are plenty of attorneys but very few of them go into Court with the passion John has when he advocates his client's interest. If your freedom is on the line, there is no other attorney in the State of Connecticut that i would have represent me. He is not afraid to butt heads with any Judge, when he believes he is right. When you use John, you won't leave the Court house wondering 'did we do all that we could?'
