What can I say about this firm? They're by far amazing at what they do! Both luke and garret work well together to try and achieve the best possible outcome for each client; and I must admit I was pleased both times I hired them to help me.
I received a DUI charge in which I thought was a sticky situation, it could've ended up in so many ways. I came in there hoping to get this reduced to a reckless at minimum with no "breathylzer/camera" equipment in my car. That's exactly what happened, and soon enough I was back on the road. There was a moment where we could've gotten it dropped but it was long shot and I was not willing to give up my plea to fight it. If you ever have a question or an idea both Luke and Garret are always if not will make time to hear you out. Give you advice and their own opinion.
During my 6-month suspension, I was caught driving but again I turned to Luke/Garret and they had no trouble hitting this together to get it completely dropped.
Luke is the man! Funniest man once you get to know him, defiently makes any client feel comfortable and welcomed. Garret is also a great guy! Opens up to any topic and talks to you like a regular person without bring up any "law stuff." Not only are the lawyers great, their staff are helpful also! Especially Katie! Prices are reasonable and offer payment plans.
If you're considering getting a lawyer to help you with any criminal/traffic charge do not HESITATE to contact either Luke or Garret.
Thanks again guys!

After meeting with 7 other lawyers, I decided to have Luke nichols represent me, and it was the best decision I ever made. I was charged with a felony possession charge after a search warrent was conducted at my house for an incident that happened while I was at work. Having a clean record I had no idea what could happen and was scared I would lose my job, among many other horrible scenarios. Luke patiently explained all the possibilities to me and what his course of action would be. Throughout the process, any time I had a question or wanted to let him know something, either he or his staff were great about responding in a quick and reassuring manner. On the day of my court, my case was completely dismissed. I truly believe this was because of luke nichols having a good repertoire with the prosecuter and his being a superb attorney. After meeting with all the other lawyers I found that Luke Nichols pricing was fair. I found I was looking for an attorney that had good character, experience, connections and a fair fee, which I felt would be impossible to find in a lawyer. Fortunately I found Luke Nichols and he went above and beyond in exhibiting all these traits. I am truly thankful for his work in my case.

Incredibly helpful since the moment I picked up the phone, patiently and thoroughly answered all of my questions. Advised what to do and was able to represent me with out me having to go to court myself so I did not have to take off work! Got a reckless speeding ticket reduced to a simple traffic violation speeding!

I had only briefly met Luke months before, so I was a little concerned when Luke arrived in court instead of Garrett, my attorney and Luke's partner. Garrett was not available that day, so Luke represented me.
Luke performed as if he had been working on my case for months. Luke immediately made me comfortable with his knowledge of the case and with his strategy. Due to Luke's ability, preparation and strategy he was able to get a DWI charge dismissed. This was a difficult case and I had worried for months that the case was not winnable. Even with the many problems with the case, Luke was able to win.
Luke was very good to work with, as was Garret, his partner, and Dan and Katie of their staff. They all were responsive and helpful and each had a genuine interest in the outcome of my case.
The firm's fees were reasonable, and even more so if one were in a situation to require an appeal/second case. Given the seriousness of the charge and the high cost of being convicted, I definitely feel it was money well spent.
I definitely would recommend Luke and his firm.

Hiring Luke to represent me was the smartest decision I made. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and put me at ease. He very obviously had my best interests at heart. Our first instinct when going to court was to try to end up with a minimal fine and to put the experience behind us. Luke listened to our concerns, and discussed a strategy with us. In the end, we decided the trust him. Our result was better than we had expected and Luke proved himself to be an exceptional attorney with a strong knowledge of the law and police procedures.

even though I didn't involve myself as much as I should have, Mr. Nichols and his team made sure they were fully informed and kept me on point every step of the way. He got in there and made sure he spoke with all parties involved and had things worked out before we ever saw the judge. The man is a hustler, meaning he hustles hard for you. Can't always get what you want in the legal system but the man certainly saved my ass and I'm very grateful for his skills and hard work. The fee was very fair and his work top notch.

RUN AWAY!! Mr. Nichols is a nice guy but refused to defend me in the manner upon which we agreed. I spent a great deal of time researching the elements of my case on the internet and discussed, in great detail, everything that I found and how I wanted to be defended. In his office, Luke and I seemed to be on the same page but when push came to shove in the courtroom, he refused to bring up SOLID legal points. He even seemed to be getting all chummy with the prosecution as if they were old college buddies. After advising me not to contest a false versioin of events brought on by the prosecution, he loss the case and has refused to represent me any further despite his created errors in the case. His position on the matter was that his "contract had expired" and thus he was "no longer obligated to defend or help [me] in any way". Although affordable, I would suggest you find an attorney with more experience before you are disappointed in the court room as well. Eight-hundred dollars later (the last bit of wealth that I had left), I am no better off now than I was before I walked into his office.. as a matter of fact, I am much worst off had I stayed out of his office.

I got a reckless driving ticket back in early Feb for passing a parked school bus. Then court date was postponed to May due to snow. So it is a long process. And I can not wait to get it over with.
Mr. Nichols helped me to reduce the charge from a criminal to speeding ticket and a fine of 150 plus
court fee total a little over 200 which is much lower than what I expected. And I was at the court for only one hour. He is friendly and charismatic easy to work with. He makes the court experience less stressful.

Luke got my "reckless by speed" reduced to a speeding ticket. Not sure of implications of criminal misdemeanor associated with reckless charge but now I don't have to worry about. Luke negotiated with DA twice because first "offer" still included criminal charge which I needed to avoid (unknown but potential impact on employ-ability - I work in pharmaceutical industry). Would definitely recommend Luke and the firm in general. Fast response to all my questions, told me all the things I needed to do to bolster my case and followed through with a "win".
