Martin provided great legal services through my DUI trial. He was always responsive with any questions or concerns I had. He offered his opinion, but allowed me to make final decisions. On top of all that he won the case for me. A great lawyer all around!
Not having been cited for over fifteen years, I was recently awarded a citation for speeding. At the time, my understanding of the consequence was a fine and court supervision, possibly traffic school. However, I was surprised to learn that I could have been arrested on the spot for the same level of violation that would have resulted in supervision in the past.
Unless you are a someone who takes the initiative to stay current with traffic law, your next opportunity to become current is after you have been cited. This, of course can be too late, and is how I learned the limits used to categorize a speeding offense have been reduced and can result in a more serious penalty than in the past.
Panic set in and, had I not sought the assistance of Martin, my court appearance may have resulted in a suspended license. My decision to seek legal representation came late and Martin could have easily declined my request due to scheduling pressures however, he was respectful and approachable. We reviewed the circumstances and arrived at a plan that ultimately mitigated the penalty to far less than it could have been. I am greatly appreciative of Martin’s help and, if you find yourself as I was, definitely consider his services.
Be aware the limits defining excessive and aggravated speeding have changed. Be safe.
A friend recommended Martin to me after I got into some trouble. Martin was clear about all my legal options, even explicitly showing me state code to have everyone on the same page. When the state offered a plea bargin, Martin said there would be no harm taking it all the way to trial, as I was likely to get a similar result no matter what. With Martin's guidance and patience, the trial ended in a COMPLETE DISMISSIAL on all charges, leaving me a free man and he saved me hundreds of dollars in court fees. Martin was available by text/phone/email nearly any time you needed him, and if anything ever happens again he will be the first lawyer I call.
Martin took all of our cases when my friends and I were wrongfully charged for possession of marijuana in Dupage County. I consulted many lawyers before going with Martin, and they either didn't believe in our case or that a case such as this could be dismissed. However, not only was Martin confident we had a great case, he also fought for the case's dismissal as our futures were at risk. Although we were prepared for trial, all of our cases were ultimately dismissed. I am so completely grateful that I trusted Martin from the beginning. He is a great, dependable lawyer and very easy to communicate with. He gives great advice without being aggressive or intimidating. Moreover, his rates are fair and affordable. I highly recommend Martin for criminal charges
Martin was very helpful with my case. Though the case took months to complete, he provided sound legal advice leading to the eventual dismissal of the charges. Overall, Martin offered competitive pricing and reliable service. I would hire him again.
Easy to reach and available to answer your questions. Explains everything in detail and always has a strategy. Happy with the outcome of my case. I recommend Martin for speeding offenses
Mr. Lascola was professional and helpful. He returned my calls and emails promptly. He rendered services diligently and helped me to solve my legal problem in a smooth timely fashion. Highly recommended for traffic violations.
I was arrested for my first and only DUI and did not know where to turn. I was referred to Martin by one of my friends who said Martin was very good with him and dealing with his DUI. I was able to get a hold of Martin that Saturday and he was very personable and comforting about my situation. I knew I was in trouble, but when speaking with Martin at his office he reassured me he would do everything he could to make the situation as easy and painless as possible. I had multiple court dates but that’s only because Martin gave me the best advice to show the court I have learned from my mistake… It worked! Although I still got consequences, they were not nearly as severe as they could have been. Even after paying Martin’s lawyer fee’s he is still helping me with my questions as well as making sure all my paperwork gets to the people it needs to get to on time. Martin is very easy to get a hold of and very easy to talk to. I can only say good things about Martin and he has changed my view on lawyers.
My son's case was indeed a complicated one since we live in NYS and he was visiting friends in Chicago where he was arrested for his one and only DUI. The year was 2002 & the judge allowed him to complete his hours of out-patient rehab in NY. When that was completed, my son mailed in his paperwork to the attorney that he hired at the time of his arrest (through the Chicago Yellow Pages) and that 'lawyer' (who will remain nameless) never delivered the documents to the court so the judge issued a warrant for my son's arrest. Unfortunately, my son was never informed of this so he spend the last 12 years believing that the case in Chicago was closed and all is well.
Unfortunately that was not the reality. After a 2014 job interviewed for a Civil Service position in NYC, my son was rejected because a background check showed a warrant in Chicago & the case was not closed at all! I started doing some serious research from NY to locate a top attorney in Chicago & I discovered Martin Lascola. This man is truly a blessing and took care of everything. He immediately had the warrant removed from his record and my son did not need to travel to Chicago to appear in court. He did need to complete additional out-patient sessions since the original paperwork was never located.
As of today, my son's case is truly closed! He can move forward with his new job and we have truly a happy ending. We could not have done it without Martin!
It is a pleasure & an honor to recommend Martin...he will get the job done!
Martin was able to negotiate a speeding ticket and lane violation down to a defective windshield and thus kept my CDL free of moving violations!
