Mr. Cessna is an awesome attorney! He is thorough, responsive, detail oriented, extremely knowledgable and a good person. You will be in excellent hands with Chris as your attorney.

Chris and his team took the time to review all of my case and gave options. All others I talked to just wanted the $1000 and plead me out. Chris and his team weren't cheap, as per the adage "you get what you pay for". I am VERY happy in my resolution of my case. I would recommend Chris and team to anyone with a "questionable" stop/ticket.

Chris and his staff handled my case proficiently. There were some scheduling conflicts encountered during the pretrial phase, some of which were on the prosecutions actions. Chris was always prepared for any contingency, which made me feel well represented at all times. I'm sure that every individual case is somewhat different from mine, but my opinion of Chris, is that he's the greatest DUI attorney in America.

I was very pleased with Chris Cessna's handling of my case. He was very knowledgeable on all facets. He was very impressive when he questioned the officer on the stand at the motions hearing.
Chris did not give me advice, he gave me options, and I appreciated that.

Mr. Cessna was up front and thorough about his services and fees from the very beginning. He is extremely knowledgeable and he communicated information to me in a clear, concise, and easy to understand manner. His paralegal, Hayley was wonderful to work with and maintained an exceptionally positive demeanor. I highly recommend Chris Cessna.

I was at a very scary time in my life, so finding Chris to be my lawyer was reassuring and relieving. He always made time for me and kept our appointments. He was very straight forward and direct in retrieving information from myself and other witnesses needed. I brag about him to people when they mention needing a lawyer. I've stayed out of trouble since then so I have not needed him, but if I did, he would be the first person I'd contact.

I fully recommend Chris for all of your legal needs. He is supportive, empathic and a tremendous advocate as well as a very personable individual. I found myself in a very frightening situation and was fearful that it would have dire effects on my career and life. Chris supported me both emotionally and legally and resolved the situation legally. He and his staff were always friendly and caring and keep the lines of communication open at all times. After retaining Chris, and becoming aware of his legal expertise and experience, I believe that I could not have found a more perfect attorney. He is the best in his field and I strongly recommend him for legal needs. Thanks Chris.

Chris is an excellent attorney and really knows his stuff. He protects your rights in the ever tricky area of suspicion of DUI/DWAI. If you have a tough case and are facing tough consequences, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris Cessna. My only other word of advice to people hiring Mr. Cessna would be to insist on attending the DMV hearing even if it is not required by your attorney. That is absolutely critical for you to even have a chance at a positive outcome regarding your driver's license. I did not do that and learned a bad lesson.

When I first met Chris he was so busy we could only talk by phone not in person. I must admit I was a little concerned about hiring an attorney that I had never met in person. It turned out is was one of the best decisions I have ever made. If you are looking for an attorney that will mercilessly fight for you through the courts on a DUI charge, Chris is that attorney. He specializes in DUI law and with the courts being as politicized as they are today you need an attorney like Chris to balance the odds that are so very against you. In my cass Chris was able to get my multi offense DUI reduced to a reckless driving which I might add was above and beyond what I expected. You may find Chris to be a little more money than some of the others, but in my opinion he was worth every penny

When I received my thrid DUI I knew I had to get a lawyer. I picked Chris because of his background and expertise. The money he charged was well worth it. I had a lot to loose and Chris was able to plead my case down to a reckless driving ticket. This prevented me from going to jail and maintain my job. I would recommend him to anyone who has had a DUI. I had rights violated that I would have not been aware of if it wasn't for Chris.
