My boyfriend was arrested on a violation of probation (misunderstanding regarding fee payment) and was issued no bond. He would have had to wait in jail for over a month before seeing a judge. I hired Blaine McChesney and he got a plea deal for time served and reinstatement of probation with a very difficult judge, who traditionally refused to hold bond hearings or move up court dates. The plea was on the judge's desk within two days of hiring Blaine and my boyfriend was released within a week. Blaine was very easy to reach at all times and always kept me informed about developments in the case. He was very honest about potential outcomes, which I appreciated. It wasn't looking good, with all of the stories about this particular judge, but Blaine worked a miracle and got my boyfriend out just before Christmas! Now everything's taken care of and his probation has ended!
Mr. McChesney was a prosecuting attorney for years and be knows the system inside and out. Before I paid him a thing he very thoroughly explained everything the other attorneys didn't. You're definitely not another number with him and he's known as an absolute bulldog in the courtroom. He resolved my case better than I could have hoped for and continues to help me long after payment has been complete. I shopped around a lot of attorneys and by far he is the best choice for any criminal matter especially DUI.
I was arrested at a downtown bar by an overzealous cop, while serving in the military. I met with three different attorneys, before retaining Blaine for my case. Those other three attorneys, quoted me outrageous prices and I didn't feel they were qualified in criminal matters. I met with Blaine, and I felt extremely comfortable with him, and knew that he was trustworthy, and honest. I also was impressed, that Blaine was a former prosecutor for many years. I selected Blaine for those reasons and also, he quoted me a reasonable price, and allowed me to split up my payment. A few weeks after retaining Blaine, my case was completely resolved in the best way possible and I never had to make a court appearance, while I was serving in the military.
