I was arrested for a second offense DUI and had been offered 45 days in jail. I'm a small business owner and that kind of jail time would have put me out of business and into bankruptcy. Russell got a video of my initial stop and filed a motion to suppress. The prosecutor dropped his offer from 45 days in jail to 48 hours in jail and I was thrilled. Thanks Russell, I don't know what I would have done without you.

I was arrested for a first offense DUI. I didn't have that much too drink and thought I passed the cops tests, but he arrested me anyway. I thought I could handle this myself and that turned out to be a big mistake. I went to court by myself and was told I would have to plead guilty and go to jail and that it would never come off my record. The prosecutor made a big deal out of the fact that I told the police I took prescription mediciation. The judge gave me some time to hire a lawyer and I called Mr. Thomas. He reviewed lab reports and talked to my doctor and took all that information to the DA. He got the charges dropped after a couple of more court dates.

I was facing a 2nd Offense DUI charge and had been offered 45 days in jail. I hired Mr. Thomas to fight my case. He undercovered a lot of information about my arresting officer getting in trouble various times with his department and persuaded the DA to drop my charges. I went from looking at six weeks in jail and losing my job to having my charges dropped completely. I can't thank Mr. Thomas enough. He was worth every penny. We fought the case a long time and he was always very patient and kept me informed about what was going on.

I recommend this lawyer. I was a few days away from completing probation for a first offense DUI when I was arrested for another DUI. I had hit rock bottom and was completely freaked out by the possibility of going to jail for a long, long time. I called Mr. Thomas and he immediately put me at ease. He helped me find a great rehab program and negotiated a great deal for me that avoided a big jail sentence and gave me another chance at straightening my life out.

I was arrested for DUI when approached by police while I was sleeping in my car outside of a bar. The first time we met, Mr. Thomas devised a strategy to win my case. And, after a preliminary hearing and later motion to suppress, the charges against me were dismissed before trial. Mr. Thomas is a very intelligent and thorough lawyer, and I felt he really cared about helping me. I highly recommend him.

I got charged with DUI due to some prescription medication I was taking. Mr. Thomas worked with my doctor to present proof that I was following my presriptions and that they didn't affect my driving. Eventually, the prosecutor agreed to drop the charges. I recommend Mr. Thomas to anyone that needs a criminal defense lawyer.

Mr. Thomas helped me through a very difficult time in my life. He was is extremely knowledgeable and explained everything thoroughly to me every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a criminal defense lawyer.

I made a big mistake hiring Mr. Thomas. He never challenged the evidence or the arresting officer in court. He never even offered a defense in court. He just parroted what the DA said. I question his ability to defend DUI cases.

I found Russell to be compassionate and incredibly knowledgeable. He clearly had a good working relationship and connections with others throughout every stage of the process. He was very responsive and communicative. I would recommend him!

I don't feel like he was aggressively handling my case. Every time we went to court he didn't seem to have much to say besides it's not looking good. He didn't challenge the officers at all. I ended up with a DUI conviction. He's a nice guy, but I can't recommend him.
