I unfortunately, I was pulled over and was arrested for dwi. I spoke with around 10 lawyers. Each attorney spoke of how the judge who was over the court I was in was tough and I had no chance of receiving the divert program and I probably need to go to trial. Then they asked for their $4,000 fee upfront for the initial payment. Then by the grace of God Alan returned me call, being attorney #11, and he put my mind at ease. He told me he would be at my initial hearing, which he was! He walked me through every step. He broke down how he was to be paid and truly took an indepth look at my choice and explained my options. He reviewed my tape of the arrest and said I had a real strong case. He spoke with the DA and got me into the divert program. Winograd is a fighter! Even when the judge initially turned down the request for the divert program, he had me regroup and requested to get me in front of the judge again. He told me exactly what to say and I was permitted into the Divert program. He handled the ALR hearing and I never lost my license. I would recommend Alan Winograd to anyone needing a tough, competent lawyer who will not feed you b.s. but give you the facts. Thank you Alan for everything!
