I hired Tanya not just once but three times. I have to say that each time she has far exceeded what any previous lawyer has done for me.( Probation violations, and even went to trial for a dui,and did amazing work there!) I have been in trouble numerous times over the years. I have never had a lawyer like her, not only did she represent me . She amazed even me with her knowledge of Law,and the care she gave me. WOW a lawyer that cares for more than just the mighty buck. Shocking but so true! She walked in the court room like a Fiery Fire Cat in heels surprising me with the passion and care she puts into her work. Lawyers tend to take on too many cases, and you dont quite get 100%, with Tanya you get 150%. She will take the time to go over your case,not just showing up and winging it as past lawyers have done for me in the past. I have referred her to anybody I ever come into contact with. I referred one close friend in trouble,and Tanya did amazing things representing him. Tanya is a AWESOME lawyer! Example is that most recently I had violated a 70 month suspended sentence being on probation. I will say that this was my fourth violation. MY FOURTH! I figured as Tanya always got me reinstated, that I could get that. Bad news is I went in front of the judge ( using a public defender) and was given the 70 month prison sentence at this time I freaked out and called Tanya. Tanya not only dropped her fee down, She showed up with little notice, She filed a motion and a week later I was in court and home, and on less probation than I originally had! She saved me from going to prison. I owe Tanya my life! If I could ball her up and carry her around like a cell phone I would. I know when Tanya is around , I am in good hands. I trust her fully, and will recommend her to anybody! I dont look at Tanya just as a lawyer. I look at her as a friend, because only friends can care as much as Tanya does! Thank You Tanya for all that you have done for me. I hope that I dont need you again, but know this.... If I do Im calling you ASAP. You are one kickass lawyer!

I was referred to Tanya by a friend. I am so thankful that I hired her to handle my case. I’d never been in trouble before and was terrified, but she her guidance and compassion made me feel much more at ease through the process. She was always available to answer my questions even if it was a weekend or after 5 pm. My seemingly simple DUI case had a ton of unexpected twists and turns due to circumstances with the court and the case – Tanya was always right on it and aggressively fighting for me in order to get everything resolved quickly and to let me know what was going on. Tanya was knowledgeable and honest. My case ended up getting dismissed completely thanks to Tanya. I’d love to say after reading other people's reviews of her and knowing what I experience that she is a miracle worker but honestly she is highly experienced, intelligent and tenacious to the point that she makes what might seem like a “long short” become a reality. I cannot say thank you enough to her for helping me through this and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a defense attorney who will passionately fight for your rights!
Posted by a Licensing client,
Tanya is honest, trustworthy,respectful,dedicated, very knowledgeable and inexpensive with my case. My case was successfully granted in less than 3 months like she said it would be. I was looking to get my license back on December 2014 when my 5 year HTO is over but I now have my license due to her dedicatio. Knowing what I know now I would not have chosen any other attorney to pursue my case. After calling around looking for an attorney and everyone except for one I talked to couldn't help me and that one who so called could couldnt or wouldnt tell me how they were going to resolve my issue at hand and on top of that they cost a arm and leg but that was the opposite when I called Tanya and that's why I am so blessed to have been referred to her. Gooo Tanya :-))

Was involved in a faulty accusation with a bitter ex & scared to death. Tanya made me feel safe & less alone through the entire process. I had never been in "trouble" before, & couldn't have felt like I was in safer hands. Will recommend to anyone in need of representation. So lucky to have met her.

I was referred to Tanya from a friend who had her way back when she was a Public Defender. I thought, if she did a good job as a Public Defender, she must love her work. The State wanted to give me 7 years in prison. She filed a motion and challenged the probable cause the officer had to stop me and won the motion! Case DISMISSED! She always answered my questions with her opinion and the law. She did everything she said she would do and more! I was amazed at how she argued and fought for me! I will never use any other attorney but her!

Early in the process, Tanya said that the case would be dismissed. At a pretrial hearing I was a bit rattled by the claims from the prosecution, but held true to my innocence. Tanya provided not one but a handful of similar cases and the prosecutor decided not to pursue. Thank you Tanya.

Tanya represented me and helped me get through a very difficult case. She was vey knowledgeable and was able to get a much better outcome out of my case. I was very pleased with how she handled my case I would definitely refer her to anyone else. Thank you Tanya!

I had both my PD and another private attorney tell me I was going to go to prison. The other private attorney refused to take my case because "there was nothing she could do."
I hired Tanya and she aggressively defended me. She listened to what I had to say and familiarized herself with my personal situation. In court she was prepared. She even told me about her back-up plans before we went in. At the hearing, the judge called her and the prosecutor into chambers and when they came out, the judge granted a downward departure.
Also Tanya was friendly and reassuring to me during a difficult time. She knew her work meant the difference between freedom and prison for me.
Not hiring Tanya to represent me could have cost me my freedom.
I would strongly recommend her to anyone.

Tanya resonates with professionalism and integrity. She is a clear, concise and prompt communicator; she focuses on all aspects of the case; and she is compassionate. We were able to retain Tanya across country, so these characteristics were critical to our case; a case that had the potential for creating enormous, life-long loss and heartache. We are enthused to recommend this knowledgeable, assertive, and versatile legal mind. She is outstanding in her field!

I have had Tanya Dugree as my lawyer for the past 2 1/2 years. She has worked on an appeal for me. I wish that I would have known about her at the beginning of my case. Since she has had my case, she has fought and has also found things in my case that were wrong that I did not know about. She will dig at the evidence and I believe that she will fight for anyone, which is what a defense attorney is suppose to do.
