I was facing about 6 months in jail due to this being my 2nd super (bac .26)...he told me within the first 10 minutes of our consultation that i was facing around 6 months realistically. he was very upfront with me and did not get my hopes up. After deciding to hire him, any question i asked he answered VERY fast. About a week before my final court hearing he let me know what my Final plea agreement was and I was okay with it knowing a second offense was pretty serious. then the day of my court hearing he told me he was trying one last time for a better plea agreement, which was a surprise to me because I thought I was just going to court to sign my already good plea he got me. So i was sitting in court waiting and he came up to me and told me he did end up getting me the better plea agreement and I plead to a 2nd time extreme with 24 days in jail on work release. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome given the situation I put myself in. So with that being said, the previous post does not at all seem like my experience with this lawyer. reading everybody else's experience on this website was the reason why I chose him. I do not want that post to taint his positive reviews because he is completely worth the money.
Arizona DUI penalties are the same for everyone on the first offense. Brian should have been upfront at our initial consultation and told me that there was nothing he could do for me. Instead, he gave me the impression that he could negotiate a better deal than I would get on my own or with a public defender. He took my money, and I ended up with the same results that I would have had without his "help." He did not stand by me at my sentencing. Instead, he sent a very young and inexperienced associate who really just phoned it in. I didn't even get out of jail early, which he highlighted as an advantage of his service. Hiring Brian just ended up being another costly mistake.
On March, 5, 2014 I was charged with four aggravated DUIs and was given a court appointed attorney lawyer. She was a private lawyer with a government contract, and did not care about me or my case one bit. She was very unprofessional, would not hear me out on my case, disregarded my family when I tried to introduce her to them, and without notice did not show up to a court date.
She advised me to plead to a felony with 4 months jail without even investigating my case. I did not agree with my court appointed lawyer, and I sought out a second opinion from different attorney. I was referred to Brian Sloan.
He was very professional from the start; took the time to hear and understand my case to then discover that I was not given an appropriate plea that was suitable due to my circumstances. He was very interested in helping me because I was given ineffective assistance from my court appointed lawyer. He said to me that he could not just sit back and watch me take a felony when clearly I should not be.
Mr. Sloan took on my case, thoroughly went through my case with me and explained my charges and the accurate consequences for my actions to better help my understanding of what I was in for. Unlike my court appointed lawyer, Mr. Sloan was very up front and precise with my case. In a week, he was able to carefully cross examine the case and reduced the felony plea from four months in jail, plus more, to a misdemeanor plea with thirty days in jail and work furlough.
I am very considerate and thankful to the fact he took on my case because he wanted to make sure I was given honest representation. I definitely refer him to anyone facing a DUI.
Mr. Sloan did an excellent job by guiding me through the entire criminal process, from initial consultation, all the way through the conclusion of my case. At each step, Brian clearly communicated all of my options, and offered his opinion on what he thought would be the best one. Mr. Sloan proved himself to be an intelligent and terrific litigator. His knowledge and comfort with DUI laws was a superior advantage in going through the process.
From the very beginning Mr. Sloan told me that I was innocent. Although the prosecutor didn't agree, they were willing to offer a very beneficial plea agreement. Mr. Sloan recommended that we keep fighting, and he even did the trial for free because he so believed in my case. In the end, the jury came back NOT GUILTY on all counts. It was scary, but I rightfully put my trust into Brian. I cannot thank him enough.
Brian exceeded my expectations with his flexibility and expertise in the services he provided. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to have had him as my representative for my case. The process was smooth and fast, which took a lot of stress off my shoulders. He was always available to answer any type of questions I would have. Through his hard work and dedication he was able to reduce a DUI into a reckless driving.
I was arrested for driving under the influence last year in Scottsdale. Being an RN, I began searching for an attorney. A friend recommended Brian Sloan, and I immediately looked him up. After reading though other client testimonials and speaking with Brian I chose to hire him as my attorney. He was able to work out a plea which I accepted. Overall very pleased. Thanks Brian.
I did not have prior experience getting in legal trouble, and he was extremely helpful. I met with Brian and he started on my case immediately. He appeared at all of my court dates for me so I didn't have to, he was extremely patient and helpful with explaining everything to me and instructing me on how to take the next step in our plan of action. He kept in constant contact with me and was available to answer all of my questions. He never left me feeling confused or forgotten about. He is absolutely fantastic! In three short months, he was able to get my case dismissed! I am so grateful that I hired Brian Sloan to work on my case. I have never met an attorney so thorough, understanding and helpful. I have referred all my friends to Brian Sloan. I would never hire a different attorney.
I had my first DUI Charge and didn't know who to contact. I found Brian Sloan by searching Google for DUI lawyers and his name came across as highly rated. I did my research and decided he would be who I went to for help. In hearing about my case, Brian was confident my case would be dismissed. He was so confident, he only charged me a portion of his normal fee. After a week or so, I got confirmation that my case was indeed dismissed, and all charges dropped. Not only did he do exactly as he said he was going to do, he refunded me a portion of the fee that I had already paid, based on the amount of work he had done. This was completely unexpected and truly shows he is a man of honor as he wouldn't accept payment for services that were not performed. I would recommend Brian to anyone seeking professional DUI representation.
I was very lucky to have chosen Brian D. Sloan to represent me in my DUI case. His fees were affordable, he is extremely knowledgeable, and was always available to address any concerns. He was able to negotiate a plea that saved my freedom, my reputation, my license, and thousands of dollars in fines. I definitely recommend him on a DUI case.
Brian was very responsive and was always there to answer my questions. He took the initiative to re-test my blood, which led to a big drop on my BAC levels from the prosecutor's test result. Ultimately, he was able to work out a great plea for me and reduce the charges from Extreme DUI down to DUI to the Slightest Degree with almost the minimum penalties. I am completely satisfied with his service and will definitely recommend him to anyone.
