Sydne represented me for an OWI offense. I contacted and spoke to multiple attorneys, but was swayed by my impression of her as someone who was actively interested in helping me. I could not have been happier with my decision. Sydne was always available to answer every question I had throughout the entire process, but most importantly she worked not just for me, but with me. I feel like this was the difference between just being a client, and being her client. She took the time to determine what outcomes were most important to me, and how we could try to achieve them. My ultimate results were exactly what we were aiming for. I'm confident I would not have achieved these same outcomes had I chosen another attorney. Sydne is an outstanding attorney, and I can't recommend her highly enough.
I was pulled over for an OWI about 6 months ago. Being my first offense and never being in trouble before, I was terrified. I found Sydne's web page and took a chance. I am so glad I did. My bac was over the limit to the point I was required to have the IID installed in my car. Before being pulled over I had just started a long process of oral surgeries that would take over a year to complete. My purpose for hiring Sydne was to see if she would be able to convince the judge/prosecutor to not require me to have the IID, (I just didn't know if I'd be able to correctly use it without disrupting my surgical site). Sydne gave me all the information I needed to get started on my responsibilities that go along with an OWI citation. Sydne gave me a name to contact for SR-22 insurance so I could get my occupational license. I also completed an assessment and group dynamics course before actually being convicted. I feel blessed to have found Sydne because she was able to help me and I ended up not being required to have the IID placed in my car. Sydne was very informative and made me feel at ease from the moment we first met. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who may find themselves in a similar situation as I.
Attorney French was consistently professional, supportive, and effective in achieving a flawless outcome in my criminal case which lasted 39 months. Her professional candor and feedback were second to none, and she maintained a supportive and realistic outlook throughout the entire duration of the case. I, at no point in the case, felt her time and efforts were fatiguing in any way, even though the reality of the situation was that the frustrations were enormous. Attorney French maintained a can-do attitude the entire duration and kept me informed with any updates, both beneficial and detrimental, in the case. I felt, personally, that I had much more input in the organization, research, and direction of my case than I have seen in the past in others dealing with their lawyers and that I was treated more as a peer and confidant than a number or source of income. Overall, Attorney French was able to assist in my defense and achieve a verdict of "not guilty" on all three charges levied against me. This 100% outcome is, in my opinion, the epitome of what a defense attorney should be.
When I was in need of a lawyer, I came across Sydne's name and for some reason, I picked her to be my lawyer. I am a firm believer in that everything happens for a reason and Thank God Sydne was my lawyer. She never once judged me, showed me great compassion and gave me confidence. She did everything she could to get me the best outcome (which I did get). Syde and I remain friends to this day as I feel some sort of connection with her. I more than highly recommend her as a lawyer and if I needed one again (which I will not) I would pay to have her as my lawyer. Any firm would be lucky to have Sydne as one of there own and any client would benefit from having Sydne as their lawyer.
