Ann was exceptionally adroit at negotiating the sometimes terrifying minefield that is the criminal justice system, particularly in negotiating her way through multiple jurisdictions and charges. Not only did she always provide us with a comprehensive picture - warts and all - of the situation(s) involving our son, complete with the sought-after outcomes measured against the realistic outcomes, but was absolutely dogged in his defense. Oftentimes, her comprehensive knowledge of not only the system but the personalities of the judges and prosecutors saved the day in what would have been otherwise undesirable end-results. She was not only absolutely reliable in every one of numerous appearances - not always the case with attorneys - but she was also available during evenings, weekends and holidays when problematic situations arose. Not only was she highly personable but sincerely interested in our son's defense even to the point of making us feel as if we were in Utah every step of the way (we live in Alabama) by constant communication whenever an issue or opportunity arose. She is very bright, imaginative, aggressive, the perfect mixture of velvet glove and a steel fist, with integrity and dedication far beyond what I've experienced in over forty years of professional dealings with criminal as well as business lawyers in Federal and State environments. She is an absolute credit to BrownBradshaw and Moffitt. Having enjoyed the exceptional assistance of Jim Bradshaw in some aspects in these cases, I feel confident in saying that this kind of professionalism permeates the entire firm - from the attorneys to the office professionals. I firmly believe that the surprising and unexpected leniency of the courts was directly attributable to her competency and professionalism; the fact that our son is on a much better track now owes largely to her interventions not only in his case but in his life. Thanks again Ann; thanks again Jim!!
We went into the case knowing the exact outcome I wanted and she didn't stop until we got that outcome. I went from being charged with a DUI to getting off with a traffic violation. Every time I emailed her she always responded and informed right away once she heard news from Judge or Prosecutor. If you are looking for lawyer that is fighting for you and not for the fact that she will get paid for it, then Ann is who you need to go to.
I have been an attorney for 30 years and was referred to Ann for a criminal charge involving a family member. Ann not only did an outstanding job on the case in terms of the result in court, but she was personable, kind, and considerate of our concerns and our schedules. I cannot use enough superlatives to describe our experience with Ann and the firm, and I would highly recommend her to anyone with a criminal case who needs zealous and professional representation.
Ann helped our son through a difficult case where our child was charged with behavior far more serious than his actions. Ann did all the usual things, appeared early for hearings to be sure we understood what was going to happen and the issues involved, returned communications promptly, showed great knowledge of the law, etc. In addition, after a particularly unreasonable ruling of the judge based on inflammatory testimony, Ann personally investigated, and found enough information to warrant hiring a professional to contact and interview a specific police officer. That officer provided evidence at an appeal hearing showing that our child had not, in fact, behaved in the way alleged. Based on the officers personal observations and investigation, the judge specifically rejected additional inflammatory testimony from the same witness thereafter. Ann's personal interest in us and assistance in proving our child innocent of the exaggerated charges made was invaluable.
