Martin was a great help throughout the whole process. I had previous arrests and he still managed to get my case dismissed. I highly recommend him!

When it came down to the details, just the other day as a matter of fact, I have to say that Martin from end to end was consistent with his understanding of what could possibly happen with my case versus what actually happened.
Due to his past experiences, within the courtroom that day, he obviously had a gained and mutual respect with others to work on my behalf on such a serious case. Mr. Lascola made the process go much faster & smoother than what I had imagined. I am definitely grateful that I made the choice to move forward with Martin and would recommend anyone to do so & trust his word. My problems went away so fast (seven minutes in the courtroom to be exact) due to his swift response to my situation. He works hard, but even smarter.
I will be recommending him to others not only for traffic but anyone that wants an honest attorney referral.

Martin's ability to cross-examine is un parallel . Martin presents as a nice guy, and is a nice guy but is an assassin in the court room. As an attorney, Martin is worth every dime. Martin saved my career, my home, my vehicle, my sanity and my family. I recommend Martin if you as a client prefer victory. His ability to keep the prosecution in check is his strong suit. Martin is also an expert of courtroom etiquette and will be in action while listening and making arguments to the other party. His diligence and preparation can only be understood once you see him in action in the court room.

Marty successfully defended the petition to rescind which contributed greatly to a favorable outcome on the criminal trial. He overcame extreme resistance on part of the prosecutor to dismiss charges and won me a full acquittal. I would highly recommend Marty to anyone looking for a vigorous defense in such cases.
This was our first time needing a lawyer, so you can imagine how scared and nervous we were. He made us feel like we had a fighting chance (unlike the other lawyers we interviewed with) and explained everything in detail about the possible outcomes. He was prompt in answering all our questions and encouraging at all times.

I picked Martin to represent me in my DUI case, and boy am I glad I did. He went out of his way to make sure that we did everything on our behalf to end up with the best possible outcome. No regrets, no looking back and saying "we should've done this or that", no mistakes, and no miscommunications. As with any case, there are no guarantees - all you can ask for is a lawyer who does everything he can on your behalf, and that's exactly what Martin did. I highly recommend him

Excellent lawyer. Represented my teenage son on driving violations, including a zero-tolerance charge. Got him the best possible resolution and charged us a very reasonable fee. He really knows his stuff; wouldn't hesitate to hire him again if the situation arises (although I hope it doesn't). Would highly recommend him to anyone.

I would like to say from the heart to all what a great lawyerMr. Lascola!!!!. My son got DUI.His work is directly related to driving a car. We are very worried that he will not be able to drive a long period of time. But thanks to Martin, he got his driver's license back , and he able to work and support himself and his family. We're say from the whole family thanks to Martin. You're the best. God bless you.

Wow is all I can say.
I contacted Mr Lascola after getting a very bad speeding ticket (40 and over) I was afraid I was going to permanently mess up my driving record and insurance rates with these new Illinois laws in effect.
After meeting Martin and talking about my options i was totally put at ease.
seeing all his achievements on the wall was also impressive.
We decide our agreement and to meet at court
Martin was on time and went straight to work
The court room was absolutely packed over 180 cases, half with lawyers ( 300 people)??
The judge was growing irritated by the min but Martin stuck it out fighting for me for over and hour and a half when all the other lawyers left with a continuance.
Mr Lascola....thank you thank you thank you
Sorry for the big story but this man deserves a trophy
I've never seen anything like it
I absolutely recommend Martin lascola for all your traffic related issues

Your creativity with handling his case and your understanding of our hopes/desires was clear throughout and you achieved the best possible outcome for us!!! Thank you for your hard work, dedication and persistence on our behalf. You enabled us to learn from our experience, yet also allow us to move forward with our lives. Your are highly recommended in our book!

I am so happy I chose Martin as my attorney! Before meeting Martin I had talked with several other attorney's and felt as if my life were over. In my first consultation I met Martin, Brandon, and Larry. They were very professional, knowledgeable, and understanding. They made me feel relaxed and comfortable during a time of great distress. Other attorneys I talked to made me feel like my case was already over, and I was going to have my license suspended for a year automatically. Martin gained my trust immediately, and put my mind at ease knowing I had a true professional helping me. Every time I met Martin, he was focused on my case and my case only.
In my situation, I did not take a breathalyzer test, but had failed the field sobriety test. During my first court appearance, Martin was able to make an agreement with the defense attorney to put me on court supervision. This meant I did not lose any driving privileges (license is not suspended, no 30 days without driving, no BAIID device in my car), and did not get a DUI conviction (meaning I was not charged with a felony which affects many different parts of life, including future job positions and insurance).
I feel unbelievably lucky with my outcome and am so grateful to be given a second chance. I do not believe I would have received such a result had I chosen another attorney. I attribute my successful outcome to the knowledge of Martin Lascola and his firm as well as the rapport they have in the legal community. I highly recommend Martin and his firm!
