  • Tatiana Dominika Czaplicki

    Jeremy and I are both members of a local peer-to-peer legal discussion group. His thoughtful and informative commentary and answers to not only my questions, but to others on the list have aided me in expanding my knowledge base in the areas of DUI and traffic laws. He is very knowledgeable and I would not hesitate to refer a client to him should the need for a downstate attorney arise.
