Best ever lawyer got my shoplifting and assault charges dismissed in one day. Warning it cost me an arm and a leg but it was worth it.

I am the father of several young children, and a beautiful, loving wife, and facing a 2nd larceny charge in 3 years. My addiction put me on the cusp of humiliating my family, losing respect from the community, and potentially losing my job.
In 2009, my first ever brush with the law, I hired Mr. Scott Aalsberg as my defense attorney. I was summoned (arrested) on a Sunday afternoon with a court appearance in 2 days to follow. I never thought I would be able to reach anybody on such short notice, nevertheless a Sunday. Attorney Scott Aalsberg quickly put me in a comfort zone while on the phone for the first time, taking the time to explain to me what the next steps would be, and what to expect in best case, and worst case scenarios. I had not even retained him yet!!! He altered his hectic itinerary to be in attendance with me at my court date sensing how scared and nervous I was.
Scott Allsberg exhibited a dedication in serving my interests, and is extremely knowledgeable in the law, and playing the game to achieve maximum results. Scott educated me about everything I needed to know about my charges of a first Shoplifting offense, explaining all processes, terminology, and even coaching me what to say to the judge when questioned. It was Scott’s mutual, respectful relationship with the Prosecutor, earned over the many years of court appearances, and his excellent standing in the judges’ eyes that my Shoplifting conviction was swept under the rug as a Public Disturbance misdemeanor. I didn’t even have to perform community service! Scott encouraged me to seek counseling to deal with my issues - worthwhile advice that I wish I listened to .............
Yes, a 2nd, repeat offense 3 years later!!!!!! I'm doomed, facing jail time, and the aforementioned humiliation for my family, and my crime becoming police blotter all over the region. Certainly a job loss to follow, heavy fines, and a devastating criminal record as a felon. My life is ruined!!!
HOW IN THE WORLD CAN ANYONE FACED WITH CLEAR CUT VIDEO EVIDENCE OF LARCENY (2ND TIME IN 3 YEARS), AND WITNESSES SUBPOENAED TO TESTIFY, GET LENIENCY?
I am absolutely amazed at what Attorney Scott Aalsberg was able to do. I owe the ability to continue my life without incarceration, time away from work, potential financial devastation, and inability to be a husband and father - typical affects of living in jail.
Scott amazed even the fellow attorneys in the courtroom, as he plead me down once again to Public Disturbance for creating a scene, a virtual 2nd slap on the wrist, with no community service or re-conciliatory fines.
A nightmare scenario was averted.
I am not proud of my actions, and through Attorney Aalsberg's caring, but stern advice, I have started to seek therapy for my problem. Every Day is a work in progress. I cannot change the past, and can only change myself moving forward.
I would recommend Attorney Aalsberg to anyone seeking assistance in a criminal case. Scott IS THE BEST. He is very honest, and advises all possible outcomes, but works his tail off to achieve the best possible results. He does an amazing job!!!!!

This man must be the best attorney on the east coast or maybe even the United States. He come through for me when I was in desperate need. My wife and I would call him all hours off the day and night, prior to my court appearance because we were so nerves. He always excepted our calls or returned them when he was not in. He also had us come in to his office to see him, just to calm us down on a few occasions. I thought I would never get out of this mess. I had many sleepless nights. and when my court appearance come he was wonderful. He had my charges dismissed. And now I don't just see this man as my Attorney, I see him as a friend. I would highly recommend him.
