If you are like me and find yourself facing an aggravated DWI charge in Nassau County Long Island, you are going to NEED to retain an experienced lawyer. Nassau County is extremely strict and they enforce some of the HARSHEST penalties. I had the pleasure of being represented by Mr. Fitzgerald through the firm Brunetti & Ascione.
About 9 months ago, I was charged with an aggravated DWI. It was the scariest and most stressful time in my life. I knew I was facing strict punishments: jail time, inpatient/outpatient treatment, 3 years probation, and even could be a possible felony charge. Mr. Fitzgerald started to handle my case and represent me at several of my court appearances. Mr. Fitzgerald will explain everything you need to know. He is very clear and concise- which is what you need during this difficult stressful time. Mr. Fitzgerald left no stone unturned! Meaning, I could see his best effort went into each of our dealings. Mr. Fitzgerald will walk you through the steps of what to expect. Trust me, you are going to need someone by your side through this diffiuclt time in your life. He will navigate you through this difficult road. Mr. Fitzgerald anticipated possible issues and was on top of everything. They are very experienced- and that is definitely what you need. I am writing this review a week after my sentencing. I could not be happier. I walked out of the courtroom and wanted to run and jump. Having put myself into such a nightmare situation, I was able to walk away from it very happy with the outcome. There is no doubt in my mind, that had I not been represented by Brunetti and Fitzgerald, I would have most likely spent 5-10 days in jail and doing 3 years’ probation, if not worse. Also, Fitzgerald was very good with answering questions, quick response time, puts you at ease, is honest with you- he’s not going to tell you unrealistic things. He is also well liked in the courts and experienced in the field.
