  1. First time DUI

    • I recommend Chad Trentacosta.

    Chad Trentacosta did exactly what he said he would during our initial consultation over the phone. He was able to get all three citations combined and reduced to a reckless driving, combined with 40 hours of community service -- just as he had promised.
    He was extremely knowledgeable about the law and my rights, and correctly explained aspects of my rights which law enforcement failed to explain, or explained incorrectly.
    He was always reachable, and could not have been more polite. He kept me informed throughout the process, and essentially took care of everything, with me have to do essentially nothing to battle my charges.
    I would highly recommend Attorney Chad Trentacosta to anybody struggling with a DUI charge, or similar charges.

    • I recommend Chad Trentacosta.

    I was facing my 3rd DUI in 10 years and came across Chad by a word of mouth. chad told me from the beginning he would not let certain things happen to me that I was fearing such as jail time , loss of license etc. I have a family, a good job, a mortgage, and all was going to be at stake. I don't know exactly what he did or how he did it but it was all dismissed and I can't express how greatful I am for hiring this guy! He talks the talk but unlike most he can also walk the walk and my results can account for that! Thanks Chad Outstanding job my friend!

    I had several pending charges against me, thought I was going to lose my drivers license and possibly go to jail. Mr. Trentacosta was able to get all my charges dropped and reduced. He is a lifesaver!

  5. Meeting the challenge for justice

    • I recommend Chad Trentacosta.

    Chad Trentacosta Exceeded all our expectations as an attorney. He was very knowledgable , competent, courteous , patient, organized,and receptive to our questions. Our 18 year old son was charged with 1st degree burglary and theft by taking. We felt that he was innocent based on the facts. Chad was very diligent in obtaining the truth and seeking justice for our family. The court date dragged on for almost 2 1/2 years; with a very determined prosecutor that demanded jail time..However, Chad skillfully presented the facts and refuted the erroneous evidence at the trial, which exonorated our son. We greatfully appreciated him for accepting the challenge and highly recommend him as an experienced attorney.

    My sister was wrongly accused of malicious crimes. She was facing several felonies, and the police told me she was being sent to prison. I knew she was innocent, and Chad fought a good fight. He told us from day one this would not be easy, and may be costly. Chad was there to the end for the ageed upon price. There were times Chad could not make
    appearances, but he communicated with us. We followed his instructions, and everything turned out fine. He is a lawyer and has many clients. Let him guide you and you will win.

    • I recommend Chad Trentacosta.

    If you are dealing with what looks like an impossible situation, with no options and need an ally on your side, I recommend you give Mr. Trentacosta a call. He is a fierce warrior and will fight the good fight, until the battle is won. Although we faced a lot of challenges, he never quit, never gave up and refused to cop out for a plea. He is a winner, so with him as your team captain, you are on the winning team. Miracles can happen, but you need an attorney like Mr. Trentacosta leading you into battle.
    I was charged with 7 felonies that consisted of multiple assault and battery charges in Fulton County. I was arrested and initially told that I could not post bail. Mr. Trentacosta was able to get me a bond, all 7 charges dropped and he cleaned my record as if nothing ever happened. I have never had any issues with the law, so this was a new and frightening experience, however, Mr. Trentacosta reassured and guided me every step of the way.
    He is an awesome person, who genuinely cares and works with you as if you are his only client. What impressed me the most was that he made very smart choices in my defense and his advice was practical; which made sense. I was never clueless about what came next, because he is such a fluid communicator. I always knew that he had my best interest at heart, but at the end of the day, it’s the proof which is evident that he is extraordinary at what he does. I am very happy with my entire experience with him as my attorney. His fees are fair, but he works way harder than he charges. He always answers his phone or returns calls and he’s a great attorney, so I will be recommending him to everyone including you.

    • I recommend Chad Trentacosta.

    I went to Mr. Trentacosta based on a referral from a friend, and my results couldn't have been better! I was facing a misdemeanor charge and was really worried about my case, but Mr. Trentacosta walked me through the whole process and was with me every step of the way. He suggested some pre-trial actions like community service to prepare me for a better court presentation, and in the end he got all of my charges dismissed, a clear record, no fines, and no probation! I couldn't be happier with the results, and I highly recommend Mr. Trentacosta for anyone going through and kind of criminal defense. I am very grateful to him- he saved my holiday season and did a fantastic job!

    HIRED THIS LAWYER FOR A DOMESTIC CASE, AND HE NEVER SHOWED UP FOR COURT, I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE WE MET THE DAY PRIOR AND HE SAID THAT HIS ARGUMENT WAS GOOD FOR MY CASE,,, HE NEVER MENTION TO ME ABOUT HE HAD COURT IN ANOTHER COUNTY,, DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE HIRING ATTORNEYS.
