I was charged a few months ago with my first (and last) DUI. I had no idea what to do, but started researching attorneys online (perhaps like you are if you're reading this). After speaking to several of them, I gave Martin a call based on his reviews from Avvo. Immediately Martin instilled much more confidence in his abilities than the other attorneys did, and I hired him on the spot. I am now mostly done with the legal end of it (Cook County), and Martin did not disappoint. Below are a few highlights.
- Martin has a lot of experience and it shows. He knows the system, the process, and will tell you what to expect
- Martin seems to know the players in the system. I noticed this in his reviews on Avvo and found it to be true in my case. Obviously this can be helpful in negotiations and with the overall approach he takes
- Martin is EXTREMELY responsive. Whether by phone, text, or email, I usually heard back from him immediately... no matter what time of day / holiday, etc. This stands out as being one of the best parts of my experience with Martin. When I was freaking out or had a question, he was right there to answer.
Overall, this is not a fun thing to go through. However, I believe that Martin gave me the best possible outcome. I won't go into details, but he did help my case significantly and made the whole process a lot more bearable for me. Definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a good DUI attorney.
Martin was the best lawyer for this job. Hired him because of past reviews and I'm glad I did. Was found not guilty on a DUI charge where I did not blow and was unable to take field sobriety tests because of a personal injury. Would highly recommend to anyone and every one dealing with a DUI case.
I got the response with the scope and all case details within minutes from my online inquiry - everything happened exactly as it was described in the first email. Thank you
I contacted Martin after I received a speeding ticket for going 30 over, which is now considered a Class B misdemeanor in the state of Illinois. He was able to reduce it to a lower speed, removing the misdemeanor charge, higher court costs/fines, and no traffic school. His fee was very reasonable, and was worth every penny!
I am a WI resident and received a speeding ticket for 33 MPH over the limit, which is a class B misdemeanor in IL. Of course, when I researched and found this out, I was VERY stressed by what could potentially happen. Having a misdemeanor on my record could greatly impact my professional license. Martin was great at keeping me informed and letting me know realistically what my options were. I was in court for only about 10 minutes. He was able to get my case down to 15 MPH over the speed limit, court costs/fines, and supervision. I also do not have to do traffic school. I would highly recommend Martin for any speeding ticket needs!!!
A great lawyer.
I was facing 2 Class B misdemeanors. He took care of both of them keeping my record clean. I even contacted him on short notice. He still took the cases even though the court date was just 3 days away. Kept me well informed throughout the whole process. I felt his prices were quite reasonable for what I was asking of him. If you are reading this review look no further, Just call him. You can't go wrong.
Martin Samuel Lascola was an excellent Lawyer handling our case. Martin Samuel Lascola was very efficient. I believe he gave us an honest and fair value for the amount he charged. I would recommend him highly.
I was about to loose everything from my cdl license to loosing my mind until Mr Lascola was there to help he went way beyond for me he is a lawyer not out for your money but to actually care and help. Mr Lascola researched until he gets the truth and the answers he truly is the man to have on your side when in a jam .Praying I never need a lawyer again but if I do I wont be worried cause I will have Mr. Lascola backing me .Thank You again Richard Tobar
Very satisfied with the work of Mr. Lascola. He kept me very informed, and made me feel very comfortable in an otherwise uncomfortable situation. I am beyond satisfied with the results of my case. Highly recommended!
Martin successfully had my speeding ticket (20 mph over) reduced to a non-moving violation. He is prompt, professional and skilled in the courtroom. This was all necessary as I am not an Illinois resident and my court date was the day after Christmas. I highly recommend Martin and will not hesitate to call him again although I do not plan to need an attorney for traffic court in Chicago again.
