Mr. Gainor is an attorney who goes above and beyond the call of duty. He looks into all options to see what is the best offer he can get for his client. I felt confident Mr. Gainor would do whatever he could to ensure I got the best deal. I know Mr. Gainor would be an exceptional lawyer in a trial. I highly recommend this attorney.
If your looking for great representation from an attorney that will be totally honest with you, keep you informed, go over all of the facts and get you the best possible outcome of your case then hire Lewis Gainor! I've had success with other lawyers in the past, however none have done as good of a job as Lewis. Due to my overloaded work schedule I was not able to meet him in person prior to my 1st DUI court date. We spoke on the phone and through email. He kept me informed to the T on everything. He took the time to email me every document and always returned my phone calls promptly. He showed up to court we went over the facts and asked me what direction I would like to take in the case. Being an automotive technician my life revolves around my license, I couldn't afford to lose my license. Lewis was able to make a plea bargain with the state to rescind my summary suspension and get me court supervision without a conviction. I am extremely pleased with Lewis's knowledge and professionalism. You will not be disappointed in hiring Lewis Gainor! I will be using him again in the future if the need arises, he is worth every penny!
Lewis is the attorney you want by your side in a tough situation. I utilized Lewis’ services during a traffic incident for speeding. Lewis was honest with me, explained the process and potential outcomes very clearly. During the actual court date Lewis was punctual, and kept me informed as to what I needed to do. If ever needed I would recommend Lewis to friends and family as well as hire him again myself, he is an excellent attorney and very knowledgeable.
I went to 2 other lawyers before I found Lewis Gainor. One of them tried to over charge me and was promising me a less then favorable outcome. The second was cheap but lazy and untrustworthy. Lewis Gainor made me feel comfortable and secure in his abilities from the moment we spoke on the phone and rightfully so! I was facing 2 felony charges and untold fines. Lewis got most of the work done outside of the courtroom, having meetings and writing letters on my behalf. His prowess in the court room left me with the feeling that I was with the right Guy, I was. I plead to a misdemeanor and received a $179 dollar fine!!!! I couldn't have hoped for a better outcome. Thanks alot Lewis keep up the good work!
In August, 2010 I was stopped by an Illionois State Trooper. Upon approaching my window the Trooper alleged that I had been stopped for speeding and improper lane change and though I did not agree with allegations I cooperated with every request made by the Trooper, even agreeing to a request to engage in a field sobriety test, that I successfully completed. Since I didn't agree with the initial allegations and refused the field breathalyzer test I was arrestedand charged with DUI.
I believe it's important to note that I am not from the Chicago are, but rather southwest Missouri in town to celebrate the marriage of a close friend. Needless to say the entire experience left me feeling powerless and defenseless against the charges being filed against me.
The overwhelming fear and anxiety associated with being charged with DUI and the life changing reprecutions almost proved to be too much to handle. That, until after receiving a referral from a home town attorney to contact Gainer & Gosch.
Upon first speaking with Lewis Gainer I was put at ease that we could achieve a positive outcome based on the specifics of the case. Lewis was reassuring and took the time to specifically explain each charge and any potential consequences. He also took the time to explain the judicial process for handing such a case in Illinois and though I was several hundred miles away he communicated sufficiently. With this being said I honestly believed that my side of the story would be adequately relayed giving way to what I felt to be the truth to be.
When my court date finally came around in October, 2010 Lewis was there waiting for me. Lewis came prepared and confident and though he knew it we were entering a true challenge, he held out a level positivity and confidence that reinforced my belief that I would have side of the story heard and defended.
Several different aspects surrounding the case, none more obvious than the several hundred miles distance from Chicago to Missori Lewis boldly requested and waived a jury trial in preference of facing a bench trial.
It was during the bench trial that Lewis truly shined and displayed his professionalism and command of legal knowledge. For a moment I felt that despite our best efforts there would be no way to beat the "system" and though the Prosecuting Attorney was savvy in his presentation, Lewis was able to prevail,resulting in the charge of DUI being dropped against me.
I have no doubts that that no other attorney could have better defended me in this case and provide the level of confidence that I believe must exist between an attorney and his client to be successful.
At the end of the road to success in the arena of DUI defense one can find Sir Lewis Gainer and I would recommend his service to anyone.
I used Lewis on a couple cases and on both cases he was very involved with every aspect, from start to finish. With the felony charges I had I spent no time in jail!!! and with 2 kids I couldnt ask for more. I would recomend Lewis to anyone with any criminal charges. Thank you Lewis,
Lewis Gainor is by far the best at knowing the law(s) inside and out and doing actual defense work. He does not have a plea bargain mentality and he proved to be a highly trusted person. At the end of the day you will know that you had the best possible outcome of your case, because there is no better defense attorney then Lewis Berray Gainor
