Your money is well spent hiring Mr. Plofchan. I was facing serious life changing penalties, and a commonwealth attorney who was well prepared. Mr. Plofchan and Daniel Griffith were able to get the Refusal thrown out under a technicality, and prepared a strong enough case, so that the commonwealth was willing to drop the DUI (3rd) to a Reckless Driving. My penalties were much less severe, and my life was able to continue on track.
I was very thankful that I hired Mr. Plochan. I started with another lawyer, but after a few pretrial proceedings I found different counsel, and I'm almost positive if I hadn't I would not being sharing any good news.

A family member retained Mr. Plofchan of Westlake Legal Group for a situation that could have resulted in a felony conviction with mandatory jail time. Mr. Plofchan’s excellent work resulted in a traffic infraction with a small fine.
When the county court did not produce a result to the liking of the Commonwealth’s Attorney, the attorney pursued a Grand Jury indictment in the Circuit Court. At the final court appearance, the Circuit Court judge complimented Mr. Plofchan on his excellent work to have arrived at the agreed settlement. When the judge compliments his work, what more can one say - superb.
From the very start and throughout the process Mr. Plofchan carefully explained his proposed approach, the steps involved, and potential outcomes, and of course the costs. He and his associate Mr. Griffith continued to provide good explanations and recommendations through all stages of the process. We especially appreciate his consideration of the defendant’s concerns about the various steps of the proceedings.
I strongly recommend Mr. Plofchan.

I just wanted to take some time and thank Tom Plofchan and the entire Westlakes Legal Group once again for all the help each one of you provided during the duration of my case. The teams expertise truly shows why the firm is truly the "Best of the Best".
When I went to see Tom, I was charged with a 2nd DWI offense. The position I was in was potentially crushing. I was looking at going to jail and losing my license for three years. In the end, Tom got my DWI dismissed and I walked away without going to jail or losing my license at all. Tom represented me professionally and got me the result I needed.
The one thing that really sticks out here is value of Tom's experience and knowledge of criminal law and the legal process. Tom literally saved my job!
If you ever need an attorney the only person you should consider calling is Tom Plofchan and the Westlakes Legal Group.
Thank you again very much!

Thomas Plofchan is an incredible defense lawyer. I would recommend him to anyone. He was able to get all all charges dismissed in General District Court through a carefully planned and aggressive defense. He was very well prepared and efficiently communicated with me prior to the trial. Again, I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a talented defense lawyer with a lot on the line.

Great laywer! Other than gather my witnesses, there was not much that I had to do. Mr. Plofchan and his office handled everything in a smooth and professional manner. He was able to clearly present the facts, present the studies and find the loopholes, which landed in the dismissal of my case. There were even other defendants in the courtroom who made comments about how well Mr. Plofchan was handling the case.

The most important evaluation of a lawyer's performance lies in his/her ability to defend your position in the most favorable way possible. Thomas Plofchan did just that. Mr. Plofchan cooperated extremely well with us--responding to emails in a timely fashion, sitting down and extracting all the facts, and much more. Through his breadth of knowledge of judicial proceedings and guidelines, Mr. Plofchan ensured that the opposing side did not take advantage or tweak rules to work in their favor. He, in the most basic way possible, ensured the defendant's right to a fair trial--the most important tenet laid out in the Bill of Rights. Clearly Mr. Plofchan knows what he is doing. Not only did he provide an argument that the opposing side could not find fault with, but also scored us a victory. His amiable personality and joviality made us feel comfortable and at ease with an otherwise stressful experience. What's not to love?

Tom handled my traffic violation case very professionally and successfully.
Tom was recommended to me by a friend and I was extremely pleased with him and his staff. My first meeting with Tom was informative and I left our meeting feeling that I choose an attorney that would fight for me. He was very well versed in all the laws related to my case. In court, he fought for my case which proved successful when the charges were dismissed.

My case was in traffic court where I felt I was wrongfully charged so I retained the services of Tom Plofchan. Tom is also a friend of mine and I had heard nothing, but positive recommendations from others that had used his services so I knew he was the one to hire. I never had a reason to hire an attorney before so I needed to go with one I could trust. Tom was very attentive in listening to my concerns about the charges and he did the research necessary to back up my defense. He took care of everything and my witness and I only had to show up in court. While the charges were not totally dropped, he was able to work out a plea agreement that certainly was in my favor & greatly appreciated. I highly recommend using Mr. Plofchan as your attorney.

Mr. Plofchan was recommended to me by a well-connected friend with regard to an over-reaching driving charge. His defense in court was well-prepared and assertive. He was able to obtain a deferred finding, after which all charges are dropped. I was extremely pleased and would definitely work with him again if the need ever occurs.
