“NOT GUILTY.” Those words echoed in my head as time stood still while I found peace in a lingering moment after 3 years of drawn out court dates for a DWI conviction. By my side was the best attorney I could ever hope for: John Gioffredi. Like all attorneys, he scared me with the appearance of disorganization and seeming selective listening habits but when judgement day arrive and we went to court John cut through the prosecutor’s and witnesses’ statements with stealthy ninja-like skills. I received an acquittal and (I know you won’t believe this but) immense respect for an attorney who is working diligently as I write this to get my arrest record expunged. I am so grateful that I left my previous attorney after he was going to sell me down the river; John fought hard for me every step of the way with a "never say die" attitude.
This whole experience was dark, lonely, and miserable and I would not wish it on anyone, but if you have to go through it I can think of no better man to have by your side than John Gioffredi. He never promised a "not guilty" but compared to the other attorneys I hired and fired he did everything he could, including fighting and winning an appeal, having improperly obtained evidence removed, and ultimately having the prosecuting attorney throw in the towel and phone in his case. Hire this man immediately.

My statement is simple, "best attorney around". I contacted Mr Gioffredi upon a recommendation from another satisfied client. One of my managers at our business had a severe past but had made great strides in reconstructing his life and is the life blood of one department of our business. Furthermore, the young man had gotten married, had a child, established credit and purchased an automobile. He and I were very proud of the accomplishments over the last 2 years. The young mans past caught up with him and he was scheduled to appear in court with. Court appointed attorney. The attorney believed it would probably be best to plea and accept a several year jail term. I called Mr. Gioffreddi and he believed even though the cards were stacked against him we could do better. On the day of the trial, the defense was so strong that the Judge even got emotional and the end result was probation. A more than fair punishment for the young man. We both thank God for John Giofreddi and I was privileged to see the justice system work and give this young family a chance to succeed. I believe with all my heart that John changed the course of this family today and generations forthcoming. Thank you hardly express our gratitude but THANK YOU.

John Gioffredi is an excellent lawyer. A one hour consultation with him is better than what my lawyer is able to offer in the course of a year. He is the best of the best! He cares about you and respects you the way he would respect a client even if you were only consulting him. He is professional, sharp, and responsive. What else can you ask for?

I hired John Gioffredi after being referred by a co-worker. I was facing my 2nd DWI charge and was very nervous about the situation I was facing. John's staff was very helpful and informative through the entire process. I was represented by counsel at the multiple court dates that did not actually require by attendance, allowing me to avoid taking time off from work. John worked out the best possible plea deal for my situation, and did his best to get all the conditions I was asking for met. I was very pleased with the representation I received and would recommend John to anyone needing legal services.

John was first recommended to me by a friend who's wife was a police officer. I was charged and with a DWI in Dallas and refused to blow during a no refusal weekend leaving a St. Patrick's Day Parade. After failing the field sobriety tests, looking awful on the video, my blood results came back in at nearly 3 times the legal limit. But I went with John's advice about at least taking it to trial and against all odds, my case got dismissed! It was amazing and would have never been able to do it without his help. Thank you so much for everything John!!!

John Gioffredi & Associates is by far the best criminal defense team in Dallas/ Ft. Worth. I found myself, by no fault of my own, facing another DWI charge. I was in complete fear of the detriment I was facing. I knew that it was going to take the best lawyer to defend me and with what I was facing.
I'd heard of John Gioffredi from a co-worker and a lady that I had met in my bond supervision class. After meeting with several lawyers, who I just was not sure about, it made sense to hire John to represent me. After my consolation I had no doubt that John was the right choice. He was honest, open and direct about my case throughout the entire process. Most importantly he didn't make me feel like another paycheck. His entire staff is professional, friendly and they actually care about you. I've met and worked with all of the other lawyers, one in particular called me on a regular basis just to check in to see how I was doing; And you will love Trish Sanders, John's Legal Assistant. She is extremely reliable and responsive.
This was my 3rd DWI charge, which is a felony in case you weren't aware. It took me some time to really come to terms with that and actually understand what that meant. I have a great job, a pretty decent life, great family and friends. All of that was at stake with my idiotic decision to get behind the wheel and drive drunk, especially after this not being my first time. Nothing was more comforting to know that my lawyer had my back 100%. Which is what you need when you are going through any legal battle. TRUST ME!!
John never sugar coated my situation and was always upfront and continued to fight to get me the best deal. And not just a deal but another opportunity or chance, that quite honestly I probably didn't deserve, given my history. I never doubted him because he did exactly what he said he would do and when it comes to attorneys actions speak volume. John worked effortlessly and got my charge dropped to a misdemeanor!!!! That was a WIN for me. I could not even imagine what life would have been like with a felony over my head for the rest of my life.
By no means do I take him and his magic for granted. I had to change my habits and behaviors and educate myself on the dangers and affects of drinking in general. I had to learn how not to be a danger to society. John Gioffredi was very much my savior. I'll forever be grateful for all of the hard work he did for me.
If you're in trouble, whether it be big or small, do yourself the best favor and have John Gioffredi represent you. The saying "you get what you pay for" is an understatement. Luckily they were very flexible with arrangements to pay him, but there was no dollar amount I could put on my freedom. You're a fool if don't hire him to represent you. I actually met two more people, randomly, that John was representing and had nothing but great things to say about his services.
I hope and pray to God that I'm never in this situation again. But if I ever get so much as a traffic ticket or what have you I'll be hiring John and his team to help me out. If you're in trouble and are reading this I hope that it give you some comfort to pick up the phone and schedule a consultation with John Gioffredi. It's the best thing you will do for yourself.

After of the most traumatic nights of my life, I was left with a horrible DWI situation. I was driving from Shops of Legacy in Plano to Knox/Henderson in Dallas. I wasn’t familiar with the area so I was following the map on my cell phone. After almost missing the Knox/Henderson exit, I tried to cut my car across but ended up not fully making the exit. I wrecked my car and called the cops, but quickly realized the cop was more focused on the two mambo taxi’s I had at dinner. I was arrested after not doing that great on the field sobriety test and later blew a .19 on the breath test.
Going into my trial, I tried to prepare myself for the repercussions a DWI conviction would have on my nursing career and my future as a whole. This was a difficult case, but thankfully I had great defense attorneys on my side. John assisted my attorney Scott Palmer for my trial. I had full trust in Scott, and he assured me that John was the best of the best! Throughout the trial, I was blown away by John’s poise, extensive knowledge, and tenacious fire. Between Scott and John, they were able to point out many faults on the arresting officer, develop doubt about the liability of the breathalyzer, and emphasize all the discrepancies in the case as a whole.
My case ended with a 100% unanimous jury and a “not-guilty” verdict. I cannot put into words how much respect and gratitude I have for Scott and John. They fought for my freedom and gave me back my future. It was a pleasure meeting John and getting to spend time with him as well! Scott was right…he truly is the best of the best!

I had a first time DWI case >=0.15. Unfortunately, I was placed in the court with the worst judge I could have possibly gotten. John Gioffredi took my case, even though most lawyers would not take in clients with that particular judge. She wasted our time on numerous occasions and John went above and beyond for me even missing important meetings to wait with me in her courtroom until she decided to return, or driving up to the courthouse during his busy days to get paperwork that she would forget to give to us or didn't know even existed. After a year and a half of dealing with this woman, John was able to get my case dismissed! He worked hard on my case and is extremely knowledgeable in DWI charges. He is straightforward and clearly explained the options I had each time I was in court. He is a great lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone facing this charge. Thank you John Gioffredi!!!
