Alexander De Marco is most likely one of the best informative and factual lawyers I have ever spoken with. He understood my case and the situation I was in. I had been at a small gathering and my roommate was getting belligerently intoxicated, and as I realized this he came at me and head butted me about three times. I had not retaliated because I don't like fighting, but unfortunately this drunk friend of mine was not himself and he was not giving up. We then later got kicked out of the house because my other friend puked all over their couch. So I drove my friends car back home and we were driving and my belligerent roommate was threating me for about 10 min until finally he started to choke me while I was driving. So now he was endangering mine and my friends life, so I had to do something. I pulled over and he got out and so did I, it was a brawl. He kept repeatedly trying to drive off with my friends car and I would not let him, so I ripped him out and left him there on the road and drove off. Later the next day he came home not knowing anything relevant to that night. He also was put in a detox facility that night, after I left him on the road. A few days after that I received a 5th degree domestic assault in the mail and it said I needed to appear in court. So I needed a little bit of help with this. The case was dismissed, we just had to hurry up and wait. The thing I really didn't get out of it was how could a police officer take a man's word when he has a BAC of .180. So from the stats he was extremely drunk. Thanks again De Marco you're the man.
Mr. De Marco is one of the best attorneys I have ever met. He was knowledgeable, caring, compassionate, and understanding with my case. He has gone above and beyond for me. He was personally vested in representing me and explained what was going on and what he was doing for me every step of the way. I plan on hiring Alex again and would reccommend him to anyone looking for an honest attorney, whom is willing to fight for you.
I was charged with a 4th degree DUI. I called Alex the next day via a referral from a friend. Alex was extremely helpful and accommodating. I was able to meet with him the next day in the evening, so I didn't even have to take off of work. He immediately put me at ease, first acknowledging my emotional state and then, after hearing my accounts of the evening, telling me my options and potential outcomes. I left with a good understanding of what to expect during the legal process.
After our initial meeting, Alex went out of his way to help me with the many tasks associated with a DUI, including faxing materials to DVS while I was on a business trip so I could install the ignition interlock after I got back home. He provided recommendations on what to do prior to court to help my case. This being my first DUI, I had many questions along the way and Alex went out of his way to be available for me to answer those questions.
Alex did a thorough job reviewing my case materials and provided me with what I believe to be sound legal advice. When my arraignment came, he came to court with me and spoke to the prosecutor, resulting in what I believe to be the best possible outcome for my case.
I can't thank Alex enough for his availability, knowledge, and caring attitude. It was nice not to feel alone in the legal process during a very difficult time in my life.
Alex did a wonderful job. My case was dropped to a lesser charge because of his hard work and his advisement's. He conducts himself as both a professional and as one who is concerned with making sure he can do all he can to represent you well. He also helped guide me through the court case processes and gave me input as often as he received it from others. His diligence and ethical behavior yielded me the opportunity to do a bit more work to prove that I am not a chronic alcohol abuser. Because of this work, he was able to get a deal with the prosecuting attorney and my charge was lessened. Huge thanks to Alex!
