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

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!

Alcohol has always been a problem for me. I let myself down, my family down and I was facing license revocation. Martin took my case to trial because if I lost my license again, I would have lost my job and then everything else in my life would have gone with it. After we won at trial, i drove on a permit for a few months and I went back to normal. Martin really came through for us.....life would have been much different without his help. Martin not only did a professional job, he really cared about my situation. I highly recommend him.

I am really impressed with this attorney. I was charged with my second DUI and both DUIs were super close together. I took the breath test and was well over the legal limit. Due to some kind of error, I never got suspended fortunately. However, the DUI was going to revoke my license and I support my kids by myself. Mr. LaScola worked very hard and convinced the prosecutor to change the charge from a DUI to a Reckless Driving. Long story short, I never lost a day of driving. If my license was taken from me, I have no idea how I could have supported my children and kept my job. Thanks for your help!

If you want to go to jail this is your man. I would leave numerous messages and would hear for him the day before court late in the day. I ended up going to jail was shocked at what happened and when I tried to get him to contact me he wouldn't contact me. This law firm was a joke and just wanted my money.

Mr. Lascola exceeded my expectations by far and provided me with necessary resources and knowledge to move forward in a positive manner. Every avenue or possibility is explored to the fullest; nothing is left to chance. Thank you for giving me my life back.
