I was dealing with getting a 2nd DUI. The prosecuter was not willing to offer a decent plea offer. Vladimir was on top of the situation, making sure I was informed of what was going on at all times. He didn't create any unreasonable expectations to get my business, rather he explained to me the possible outcomes along with the strategy involved to accomplish each. He was willing to take as much time as was necessary to ensure we had all the information required for a strong defense, interviewing officers involved and gathering all evidence as well as expert testimony to support my case. In the end, after being set to trial, a much better offer was placed on the table and I accepted it. I felt like I had a pretty good chance taking the case to trial with what he had prepared, but decided against it just for the certainty in the outcome. The original offer was for 90 days in jail and i ended up accepting an offer for 24 hours. Essentially, it was dropped to a first time regular DUI with the minimum penalty which in the end allowed me to keep my job for now. All in all, he is not a timid attorney when it comes to dealing with the court, willing to be aggressive when needed. You'll feel he is working hard and genuinely wants to help you. I would highly recommend his service.

AZ Motor Vehicle Division's rules are not only confusing, they're absurd in my opinion. Without Attorney Gagic by my side, I'm positive my nightmare dealing with them would have been much worse. I was terrified going into the process, yet Attorney Gagic reassured me by thoroughly explaining each step and filing documents within the correct time frames to protect my best interests. Don't try this alone!

My minor daughter received a DUI and they waited until she was 18 to prosecute so they could charge her as an adult, which I couldn't believe was legal. Sadly, Mr. Gagic confirmed that it was, but he researched the case thoroughly to see if there was any way to minimize the damage, and ultimately we were able to accept a plea that was substantially better than it could have been. He always communicated and kept us up to date. I don't have much basis for comparison, but we were happy with the service provided.

First of all I would like to thank Vladimir Gagic for the incredible representation he provided me. From The moment I met him I knew I was in good hands.
Vlad immediately set my mind at ease with his expertise and great communication skills. I was charged with a DUI and it was a complicated case. Long story short with consistent support and communication with Vlad the end result was the case was dismissed and rightly so.
His continued care and support have also been beyond what most in my opinion other Attorney's would do. That's because he truly cares for his clients and is passionate about what he does.
I would Recommend Vlad Gagic to anyone in need of excellent representation. I am also happy to speak with anyone considering Vlad as a Personal Reference on his behalf.

Vladimir was very knowledgeable about the DUI process and kept us informed every step of the way so there were no surprises. He was very responsive to our questions and made us feel as though we were his friends rather than his clients. We highly recommend Vladimir to others who may have DUI issues.

I have given a review within the last couple week or so, but am happy to thank Vladimir again. We do not know what we would have done without his understanding & legal knowhow. He was very caring but firm in handling my case. I would recommend Vladimir to anyone including our family & closest friends. Thank you Vladimir for making a bad unexpected issue that came into our lives easier to deal with. We will get through this, & quite sure we will not need any legal help again. His strong & caring way he dealt with our issue, reflects on him always being a Marine.

Vladimir is easy to work with, very knowledgeable, witty, and thinks well on the fly. In addition to implementing his general knowledge base, he researched the specifics to my case thoroughly and reported on them accurately and in a well thought out, compelling manner. He was responsive to E-Mails and concise in his feedback. We developed a good rapport during the course of my trial. Vladimir represented himself in a professional way and is an exceptionally competent attorney. I highly recommend him.

Recently, Vlad assisted me with a criminal matter. I found him to be very responsive, professional, intelligent, thorough and an overall great attorney. His firm has a very cool software program which allows you to monitor and review your case filings and status. Vlad devoted a great deal of time to my case, and was extemely helpful all the way through. I appreciated having my attorney available to answer questions, not just a paralegal or legal assistant. He is very knowledgeable about the law, and will be aggressive when it is necessary to "get the job done". In the end, I recieved a wonderful result in my case and couldn't have done it without Vlad. Although I hope I never need further assistance, in the event that I do I will not hesitate to hire Vlad.

Mr Gagic, esq.is a rare breed amongst competing lawyers here in the Valley of the Sun, I need to start by starting that I am a practicing Doctor here in Phoenix and found myself in a most difficult position when I first researched and found Mr. Gagic. "The Marine On Your Side" is almost an understatement for the focus and dedication he takes on for his clients. He has personally worked with and for me for some time now never not taking focus on his skills to fight for me to the fullest of his ability. He had an immense understanding of the law and utilizes his many skills and tactics for the sole purpose of working to the extreme for me. Combined with his enthusiasm for the law and justice for all he took my case on knowing how to get the best results possible for my situation. He is extremely articulate and builds relationships with other court personnel for the sole purpose of building honestly which ultimately made for a very positive outcome for myself. He never stopped the pressure and pursuit needed in the courtroom on various occasions to fight for my cause. His passion for the law and the most positive outcome for me started on day one meeting him at his office and had never changed even one year later. He's a winner and will find the best course of action for the most beneficial outcome, for me, but I must say it is in his personality and believe he puts his whole heart into the cases he takes on. He never stopped fighting and put pressure into the court room to prove my case and was always upfront and informative at each legal maneuver. His communication skills are second to none and I never felt left out and unknowing about my legal matter while informing me constantly and consistently on ever turn of events. I put utmost trust in his legal skill and himself as a righteous and honest attorney. Speaking of communication he never left me out of the loop about next appointments and court hearings through his extensive knowledge and database of computer assisted software to keep me well informed. He has always been available for questions and concerns at each turn when I would phone him with spur of the moment questions. One stand out with Mr. Gagic is the fact that he sole proprietor of his law firm which leads him to have a greater understanding of my case and handles everything personally never leaving another lawyer to handle issues they may not be privy to. He fought from start to finish personally, handled the whole case personally, was available on a moments notice for me and always made me feel secure and well protected with his arsenal of his well trained law knowledge. Another advantage I garnered from him is his history as a prosecutor earlier in his career so he has a firm grasp of the prosecution side of law which gave him an advantage to keep me up to date on what I was going up against and strategy to outwit what was coming at me from the other side.
To conclude I recommend Mr. Gagic emphatically and you as a future client can rest assured that "The Marine On Your Side" will never waiver for your cause and fight for the best outcomes available for any circumstances you may unfortunately find yourself facing. He took the stress out of the equation for me and took to fighting from day one.
If need be and you'd like more in depth information on his skills and character please feel free to contact his Legal Aid and she may put you in touch with myself I would be more than willing to try to answer questions pertaining to Mr. Gagic only and his skill. I am not a lawyer but could shed light if need be on his skills, I would rehire him in a second if anything were to come across my desk in the future. Thank you Mr. Gagic for being there when I needed you most !!
