Last year I was brought up on over eighty felony counts in Montgomery County. Mr. Thomas did an amazing job. He represented me with vigor and amazing intelligence. The judge at sentencing commented that Mr. Thomas had done an excellent job. Even after giving a full blown confession to the cops, Mr. Thomas was able to work out a sweetheart of a deal. I ended up pleading guilty to two counts, one of which was a misdemeanor. If you want a lawyer that will listen and has your best interest at heart I highly recommend Mr. Thomas.
This lawyer approached my question from a clearly biased and activist point of view and was not helpful in anyway. He personally "attacked" my question and made inappropriate comments on my personal views - how he could ever fairly represent a client is beyond me. Another lawyer even commented to say that his answer was unprofessional. I had a legitimate question that needed to be treated with more respect from a legal perspective - not a personal attack.
I'm going thru a credit card civil case......on my own and needed some help. Mr. Thomas was super quick to respond and helpful.
Before a couple of months ago I never had any need for a lawyer, so I never dealt with any. My ideas about what it meant to obtain legal representation were shaped by stale jokes and stereotypes. I assumed that I would not be able to afford a lawyer due to ridiculous hourly rates. I figured my lawyer wouldn't care about my case as it was sure to be one of many. I was basically just bracing for impact; and then I was referred to Charles Thomas. He charged me a flat fee for his services and made me aware up front of what my different options would cost. He kept in touch with me marvelously throughout the settlement process (I chose to settle which was both my least expensive option and the least lucrative choice of action for him, and I still felt that he always had my best interests at heart).
I feel like I'm rambling on at this point but I'm sort of still ecstatic from the relief of finally being able to put this lawsuit behind me. Trust a guy who feared the worst and got some real help: if you need legal representation, hire Charles Thomas.
Charles got me into a first-time offenders program, and despite fearing that my life would TOTALLY be over, the process was not too horrible and now that I've completed the program, I'm back on an unrestricted license.
Came to hearing unprepared. Did not obtain any paperwork from the court regarding the case. Never knew the facts of my case. Showed up to court late. Complete ineffective counsel for an easy case and it ended up costing twice as much as if I just pled guilty. DO NOT HIRE - you can tell by the quality of his "firm's" website.
