    I would not recommend

    I wish I had known about this site a few years ago when my wife got a DUI. My wife and I were stressed and scared and this guy took advantage of our situation. I cant remember the exact price but he "represented" us for like 2 grand. He was very confusing and if we needed any additional paperwork filed he would request a few extra hundred dollars if we wanted him to take care of it. It was my wifes first DUI, she was in the higher tier for what she blew like a .192 I think, we were pulled over on the way home from a bar and pulled over for going 5 over the speed limit because it was 2 in the morning. She ended up getting 1 year probation, alcohol abuse classes, AND 1 week in jail. Yes my 23 year old wife with a clean record prior had to do 1 week at the small jail down the street from the hamilton county justice center. If we could go back in time my wife would have just showed up and plead guilty and saved herself the 2 grand we spent

    I'm Happy With My Decision

    I got an OVI/DUI charge at the end of Oct, 2011. I thought Chuck Strain was expensive, But since I wanted that DUI to disappear I stuck with Chuck instead of going with another lawyer after I read the reviews on this site. The other lawyers told me $1000-$2000 to get me the minimum charges since I blew the breathalyzer. Which means I would have a DUI on my Driving Record. They said they won't be able to make my DUI Disappear. Chuck charged me a similar amount and even started working my case without paying him up front. He let me pay him in increments due to my financial problems!

    I got frustrated at a certain time and was very rude to Chuck. But Chuck kept his professionalism at all times and showed that he cared and really wanted to help me. And that he DID! I am so grateful to have chose Chuck Strain to represent me, because I have a reckless driving on my record instead of a DUI. Just what I wanted. And the other well-known lawyers admitted they couldn't provide that. I would be stuck with a DUI on my record.

    Thanks Chuck! I appreciate your service for real.

    What A Joke

    Paid this guy $1,000. up front to take the case. After speaking with him a second time, decided he was not what I was looking for in an attorney. Of course he kept the $1,000. for absolutely NO work. He gave me the feeling I was being conned.

    Yes, but not necessary

    While Chuck is extremely thorough and indeed is very knowledgeable, we felt that he was confusing and misleading. I feel I overpaid for the service I received. He was late on 3 occaisions, the last one causing us to miss an entire day of work and school. In my opinion, if this is your first DUI and unless the officer did something wrong and you feel that your rights were violated, you do not need an expensive attorney.
