  1. Best in class legal representation for an unbeatable price!

    • I recommend J House.

    When I was charged with 3 counts of possesion with intent to distribute THC, I was worried this would significantly impact my future. Mr. Steven House offered a free consultation and was extremely informative. After facing 3 felony charges. My initial sentencing was 3 months probation, 9 months jail and 2,000 in fines, Mr. House was outstanding in keeping me informed and representing my case professionally. I am now facing 2 misdemeanor possession charges with expungement upon completion of two years probation. As I don't have any intention for use of his services in the future, I know who to call it I am ever in legal trouble. Thank you Mr. House!

      Lawyer Comment:

      Rather than initial sentencing, it was the initial plea offer from the prosecutor was pleading to three felony counts for two years probation with nine months of jail as a condition of probation. The case was ultimately resolved with a deferred prosecution agreement on one felony allowing for a future dismissal of that count, pleas to two misdemeanor possession charges and two years probation with no jail. Thank you for the good review.

    I interviewed several attorneys before going with Steven House. He impressed us not only with his wealth of knowledge on DUIs but also with his calm, confident manner. Our son was ambivalent about hiring an attorney to represent him but after working with Mr. House, he realized that without his help and experience he would not have had a chance facing a DUI, along with other tickets. Mr. House gave us the best Christmas present we could have received when my son received a not guilty verdict on his charges. My son came to me and said that he was so grateful that we had enlisted Mr. House's services and that there was no way he could have prevailed against the charges without his assistance. That is an understatement! Mr. House is a miracle worker and came up with defense motions we never would have thought of on our own. He is incredibly well informed on all of the legalities one faces during such a difficult time, keeps you very well informed, is personable and very reasonable in his fees and fair. He presents himself well and is the very best advocate one could hire during one of the most difficult charges one could face. My son will be forever grateful to Mr. House, as will our entire family. You're in excellent hands with Mr. House. It's the best decision we ever made to hire him as our representative. He is the absolute best attorney if you're facing a DUI (a true nightmare in itself and something you hope noone has to go through) but if you do.... HIRE STEVEN HOUSE! You will NOT regret it for a moment. I think he is the best attorney in Madison if not the entire county!

    Mr. House was very helpful with my case. Although it took a long time to conclude, the overall goal was met. He spent a great deal of time trying to reach our goal and didn't give up when at first our agreement with the courts was not made. He was very prompt with returning emails and answering questions right away. I would definitely recommend Mr. House to anyone.

    • I recommend J House.

    I came to this city from Japan just two month ago and was ticketed with speeding and wrong way drive.
    I sent some email to 6 or 7 attorney to ask about pledge.
    But most of their replies were not clear and not helpful for me.
    Only Mr. House replied me soon and his answer was so clear and helpful. I decided to ask Mr.House.
    He achieved to reduce my points as I wanted to be.
    All of his advice and information were quite helpful and I really appreciate his work.

    • I recommend J House.
    • J House handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Shortly after a night of questionable decisions I contacted Mr. House with many questions and worries. Mr. House responded promptly and fielded every question I could throw at him in a manner that made me feel as if my case was a priority. To say he eased my worries would definitely be an understatement. My case had a few wrinkles that made me fear additional charges being brought against me. Mr. House not only defended me from additional charges, he was able to get my original charges completely dropped!

    Every step of the process Mr. House ensured I was informed and truly looked after my best interests. If are in a fix and reading this review; look no further, J Steven House is an exceptional lawyer and human being.

    I was charged with a battery shortly after moving to the area. Without having any local contacts I found myself doping a search online and is how I found attorney house. He represented me well and was very prepared before coming to court. The case ended successfully and I owe a lot of that to the way attorney house handled it.

    Every one makes mistakes in their life. Unfortunately one of the mistakes I made could've cost me severely. Mr. House was very understanding and compassionate about my case. After our initial meeting I left feeling as though things would be ok. Not to mention the fact that his rates were very reasonable, which eased my mind even more. Long story short.... all charges ended up being dropped. Hoping I will never need his services again, but if I do, he will definitely get the call.

    Mr. House provided an invaluable service, and guided me through the difficult court process. He was able to negotiate on my behalf for a lesser charge and recommend the best course of action. He got the criminal charge I was facing reduced to a civil forfeiture with no criminal record. He was responsive and a great benefit to my family's well being. I would recommend him as an attorney. I am very grateful for his assistance with a matter that was overwhelming to me. He kept a level head and was a good source of information and a good guide. Thank you, Mr. House.

    Steven House did an above satisfactory job for my appeal and Trial in Waukesha County Wisconsin. I originally found him on the Avvo website when he answered a post I made. He was well prepared for trial on an OWI prescription drug case. I would recommend him to anyone. Reasonable but trustworthy.

    • J House handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I was in the rut of my life; I thought everything was over. I didn't think I was going to stand a chance against the State and the State's attorneys. I was falsely arrested based on a whim of a disgruntled former girlfriend. After talking to quite a few different lawyers, all of them seemed to give me nothing but the same answer.

    Steven House was the exception. After my initial court hearing, I knew this gentleman meant business. He was not only highly responsive, he kept me in the loop the entire time and was always reachable by phone. He was not only extremely knowledgeable but he had a certain personal finesse that without a doubt turned the jury trial in my favor.

    I recommend Steven House out of empathy for people put in situations similar to mine. You deserve an attorney that will give you the best help possible!
