    • Michael handled my DUI / DWI matter.

    Best DUI lawyer. Very knowledgeable, and well connected. He got my 3rd DUI dropped. I didn't even have to be on probation. I wish I had him on the other two. Highly recommended. Would use him again in a heartbeat!

    Mike Quimby told me, "we might have to go all the way this one" because the state was not willing to budge on their offer. I was scared but we proceeded. Next was the motion hearing's which Mike said that he was not going to promise me anything on the out come, but that he believed that the motion's would seriously have to be addressed. they worked agressivley on my case. It was amazing to watch them and listen to their defense as they questioned the officer involved. I was looking at a possible prison sentence if it went to trial. So now was the the time for Mike Quimby to prove to the court the my case which he did with a proffesional and agressive manner that I have never seen. The judge accepted the motions and we won the the case. I want to thank Mike Quimby and his associates for the remakable job they did. They know the law! His legal assistant Robyn Cummings and also Attorney Jody Wade did a fantastic job. I want to thank all of you and the whole firm for their diligent work at handling my case! God bless you all. You saved my life.

    I was passed from Sholes to Quimby, who never contacted me. I was told I had a very good case but since it was an election year (State Attorney) it was not looking good. The Assistant DA did not want to prosecute me on the evidence from DVD, the Officer proceeded violating several field test rules. I was told the Supervising DA wanted to proceed to court. IF my case and attorney were so good, why would the State risk losing? Oh...I know it was the 8,500 I paid upfront for a 2nd DUI and the additional 2,500 wanted to go to trial.
    I constantly dealt with the office secretary or the newest addition Jason, fresh out of law school. When I said I didn't want to risk trial and couldn't afford it, I was handed off entirely to the new kid. In the end I plead guilty - I then in "incarceration" met people with public defender's who had received lesser sentences from the courts than I. The firm is also overwhelmed, too many clients therefore not permitting diligent representation.

    In the 14 months of my DUI case, he returned my calls only one time. The only time I could ever talk to him was on the days that court preceeeding were held. When I asked for a back ground check on the officers involved to ensure there was no misconduct in their past histories as officers, he simply stated he did, nothing was found and could not provide me a copy of that report. Which told me he never did it. He also told me I was being charged w/ 4th DUI whcih resulted in his fee going from $5K to $8500K. I found out through him in the middle of the case that she wasn't charging me with a 4th because she couldnt prove the first two back in 1983 and 1984 (incomplete and missing records) HE KNEW BEFORE!!!. I paid him $7800 and I get a call from the firms acctg dept and they want to know when Im going to pay the balance. I told them I was never charged with a 4th (felony) and if anything he owed me money. Then later his office tells me I owe nothing, bc of the goodness of his heart. WTF!
