I paid Tim Gyftakos $2,500 to handle my case and this lawyer was so unprepared that I would have been better off with a public defender. The first time I went into court he reviewed my files the day of and did a reset to come back a year later. The next time I went back he didnt even know the details of my case and I had to fill him in because apparently he didn't read my files. The main details which should have got me off (confirmed by another lawyer) were never even mentioned in court because he didn't remember our previous conversations nor had he reviewed my files. I was told Tim already had my money in cash so instead of taking my case properly to the prosecutor or trail (which would take up a lot of his time) he scared me into believing that a trail could result in a much harsher sentence. This was also confirmed as a bunch of B.S. after I did some further research. Nonetheless, the no contest pretty much means guilty on my record and me paying a bunch of fines and probation.
