I was charged with DUI and refusal in Prince William County. I interviewed Mr. Pignone and several other attorneys. The others said the best I could hope for was take the refusal and not drive at all for a year or plead to the DUI. Mr. Pignone said let's go to trial and after much arguement the judge dismissed both charges. I walked away with nothing. I can't thank Mr. Pignone enough.
I hired Mr. Pignone for defense for a reckless driving ticket in Fairfax, VA. The officer was present on the day of court and reportedly paced my speed at 90 mph. Mr. Pignone successfully negotiated with the prosecutor to reduce the charges from reckless driving to speeding. He was knowledgable and responsive from the initial consultation through the court date, and his fees were reasonable.
I was terrified after being charged with a DUI and a Reckless Driving. After speaking to many attorneys, some being cheaper and some being more expensive, I decided to hire Mr. Pignone because I had a feeling that he cared and would do everything in his power to help me. We went to court and it turned out even better than he thought it would. I ended up having the DUI dismissed and no jail on the Reckless Driving. I really thought I would be going to jail, but with Mr. Pignone, I not only didn't go to jail, I didn't even get convicted of the DUI.
