I am extremely pleased with Attorney Grieve after my case. I retained his firm to represent me on a serious matter. He was able to answer all of my questions and took the time to understand the issues and nuances of the case. Through his aggressive representation we accomplished far more than I had thought possible. I would recommend him and Grieve Law to anyone who is in need of an accomplished criminal and DUI attorney!
After a previous bad experience with a public defender, I chose to find a lawyer this time around. I got picked up for a dui and had a firearm in my center console. I didn't know this wasn't acceptable and also had my ccw permit. Ultimately the prosecutor's "deal" was for me to sit six months in jail for the firearm. Mr. Grieve fought for me and had the firearm charge dropped completely. I cannot express how pleased I was with his performance in the courtroom. I whole-heartedly recommend Mr. Grieve.
Attorney Grieve represented me in a case involving my firearm. According to the law, I didn't commit a crime. This didn't stop a Waukesha County DA from charging me with a crime - not once, but twice. Both cases were dismissed for No Probable Cause. But, the process took over a year. Never having committed a crime in my life, the criminal justice system was foreign and terrifying to me. Tom was wonderful about informing me as to what would happen, not only that first day in court, but with all that followed. He knew, and was sensitive to, how upset I was - in fact, I was an emotional mess! Added to this, the media had a field day. Reporters were at the first hearing doing everything they could to get me to say something they could use (probably against me). Thanks to Tom's instructions for what the media might do, I didn't say one word. I can tell you that if I hadn't trusted Attorney Grieve, I would have spoken out and most likely in anger. In fact, in this long process, I realized that I could trust his counsel always. I never in my entire life thought I would need a defense attorney. And, most definitely, I could not have found a more excellent one! Tom is not only a competent attorney but a person of character both ethically and morally.
Unfortunately my fiance was facing many years in prison (35+) He is a multiple time felon with a not so good history dealing with drugs and firearms. I thought for sure he would get 15yrs minimum, but thanks to Tom for having the skills and knowledge he does my fiance end up only getting 2 years! Not only did Tom make it happen, during the entire process he made sure all my questions were answered and I understood everything every step of the way. Every email and phone call were answered in a professional and timely manor. Thanks to Tom, my kids and I will have our family back and my fiance will have a shot at leaving his bad history exactly where it belongs, in his past. Tom believes in second chances. I don't think I could have asked for a better outcome and I'm not sure I would have gotten the same result if I didn't go with Tom! I highly recommend him to anyone that wants the best possible outcome in their case!!
I was recently involved in relatively serious traffic violation. As a result I had police knocking at my door multiple times and were calling very frequently. My family and I were very anxious as the potential outcome could have been disastrous for my family. I called Tom Grieve and he immediately calmed me down by fully explaining the situation I was in and took control immediately. He called the police and as a result they backed down right away. I work 3rd shift and was worried about being able to be in contact with him when I needed to be, but Tom worked around my schedule as if he shared my hours. He was always available and always returned my calls in a timely matter. Tom is a very busy attorney and I probably called much more often than was necessary but he never acted annoyed or rushed. With his help he walked me through everything that was in my best interest and I followed his instructions. As a result, in the end his hard work exonerated me from the charges that were leveled against me. I know that I couldn't have been his priority case but he acted as if I was. Each and every time i reached out to him he took the time to answer all of my questions. He even contacted my wife who wasn't even his client when she had questions about the case. I cannot recommend him strongly enough. I have worked with a few attorneys in the past and have been let down every time and Tom has renewed my faith in them. He went above and beyond what I expected from him. Hopefully I will not be in need of an attorney again to help me out of legal trouble, but if I do his is the only name I'll be calling.
Tom and his associate were successful in defending my 18 year old daughter and getting two felony charges reduced to one misdemeanor ticket. My daughter and I could not be happier with the outcome.
I need someone who is assertive and aggressive in working for me as my lawyer, no matter the situation; unlike many who are do-nothing, empty suits.
Tom was extremely helpful and knowledgeable with what I needed to see him for. He was very agreeable with like-minded views who is honest in his opinions and suggestions.
I will absolutely strongly suggest others see him for a defense attorney. Thank you so much Tom!
This is the first time I have ever needed an attorney in my life, so i had no idea what to expect.
After meeting with Tom i knew that he was not your average lawyer. He cared about my case, and explained to me how things would probably play based on the options available.
He must have a crystal ball, as what he explained was exactly what he was able to negotiate the charges down to. I met with 3 other lawyers prior to Tom, and it was a night and day difference.
I am keeping his card in my wallet from now on.
I've had Tom for a couple of felony drug cases and he really helped me. After my apartment got raided and I got charged with possession of THC 200-1000 grams I ended up with just 2 years probation. Then when I got arrested on that probation with weed and some mdma - felony charges - he got me out of jail in time to save my job and got my felonies down to misdemeanors with just more probation.
Tom has always been patient and made sure I understood what was going on and that my questions were answered. He was always very honest and upfront about his predictions and advice and he was very knowledgeable. I think one of the things that makes Tom so effective is that he got to know a bit about me and presented my character to the prosecutor in a very positive light.
I highly recommend Tom Grieve, and I will instantly hire him again if I need a defense attorney.
We needed an attorney for my Son. After speaking with quite a few, I found Toms Information. He immediately made us feel at ease. He made us feel as if we were more important than anything else he had going on. He even took my call while on vacation. We were talking for quite awhile before he even mentioned he was out of the state! Tom has a way with his clients that puts you at ease. He is extremely knowledgeable, polite, and genuine. We were blessed to have found him!
