    Excellent representation and dismissal of case!

    In 2013 I was charged with a felony domestic violence offense. The charge I felt was unwarranted and I wanted to fight to get it dismissed. I consulted with a few criminal defense attorneys before selecting Craig to represent me. Most of the lawyers told me it would be unlikely to get the the case dismissed but possible to plead to a lessor charge. However, I did not want a plead... I wanted a dismissal.

    Craig was one of the only lawyers willing to support me in this decision, knowing the difficulties and possible outcome. I selected him to represent me based his support, experience and affordability. Other lawyers wanted more money to take my case and did not want to fight for me as I felt Craig would.

    Craig's support along with his expertise in dealing with the courts and prosecutors handling got my case transfer to another court and reviewed by a new prosecutor which eventually allowed me to enter a diversion program. My participation in the diversion program got my case dismissed, instead of pleading guilty to a lessor offense. Ultimately a better outcome.

    I truly appreciate the assistance Craig and his office provided me, they kept me informed along the way and even after months of waiting for dismissal, they never forgot about me or my case. This type of personalized attention and care is hard to find. I would definitely recommend Craig to anyone is a similar situation and needing a lawyer on their side.

    Small light in a long, dark tunnel

    My case was going to be a very difficult case to win at trial. Case took 13 months with a surprise deal at the end. I didn't get off from a crime I didn't commit, but the charges were lessened and gave me the best result you could ask for by dealing with this retched court system.

    Amazing at what they do!

    Dave and Craig had a plan and executed. I was very impressed by their knowledge to choose on avenue of defense and they took care of business. Could not have asked for a better group to handle business. Thank you!

    Strong Lawyer With Integrity

    We were very pleased with the services of Mr. Gillespie. My husband was in a situation in which we thought it best to seek out the services of an attorney. Not having experience with criminal attorneys in the past, we had no one in mind and used Google to find an attorney and schedule a consult. We initially chose one of the larger firms in the valley where we were met by an attorney who scared us to death and then said he needed $25K to represent the case or my husband would go to jail for 25 years! WOW. Our hearts stopped and we were terrified. We sought out Mr. Gillespie as a second opinion after locating his profile on Avvo. We were very impressed with his advice and how he set our expectations. Mr. Gillespie told us he'd meet with the prosecutors office to get information on the status of the case. He called us the next business day and told us that the case had been turned down by the prosecutor. The relief we felt was unbelievable and we were so grateful for his help. We hadn't even paid his retainer and he did this task for us and provided good advice. We offered to pay him for his time and advice but he refused to accept payment for his work. Mr. Gillespie could have been like the attorney at the firm we'd previously gone to, scared us and charged us an arm and a leg like they intended to do, but he was honest and helpful. He has integrity and is well versed in the law. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a attorney who will be straight with you, is knowledgable and will look out for your best interests rather than how much money he can make representing you. We were very happy with his service.

    Best Possible Outcome

    Throughout the process of dealing with my DUI, I was kept well informed every step of the way. Dave kept in touch with me on a regular basis to discuss my options in-depth. He was able to schedule every meeting and court proceeding at my convenience; being a full-time student, employee, and mother, this helped a great deal and relieved a huge amount of stress. I could not be more satisfied with the outcome of my case and I am extremely thankful for the entire law firm in helping me navigate through this difficult chapter in my life that I can now put an end to!

    Dropped the ball!

    Go elsewhere if you need an assertive, bold agressive attorney. He is wishy washy and does not keep the client well informed. When it came down to the last hour and everything was on the line, he was man handdled by the prosecution. Worse mistake we ever made choosing him for our attorney..

    Recommendation for Craig Gillespie

    I am a professional ball player and so appreciate the genuine care I was given throughout the entire process. Sometimes it was hard to connect with me, but Craig's staff was diligent until they did so. Integrity and humility are the qualities I always look for in an attorney. I also want a person who genuinely cares about his client ~ and what is best for that client.....then goes about achieving those results in record speed.

    Craig Gillespie is that person. He also is one of the most professional and knowledgeable attorneys with whom I have worked. I whole-heartedly recommend him and his wise counsel to anyone in need of his services!

    Outstanding professionalism

    I was really clueless when choosing an attorney after getting myself into some trouble. I didn't know where to turn, so I did an internet search and lucky for me I chose the law office of Craig C. Gillespie. After a brief meeting with Mr. Gillespie at his office (nice) I felt comfortable that he understood my situation and my motivation for obtaining an attorney. He advised me of his fee and it sounded fair and I have no regrets. He assigned Mr. Dave Roscoe to represent me and he was great! I'm very happy to say my case was dismissed with little attention from me. The professionalism extended to me was the best and that includes Legal Assistant Brenda Sungino who was always very helpful! I am so impressed with the follow-through of everyone at this firm!!!
