    • I recommend James Charnesky.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    After I was charged with DUI, I investigated and interviewed a number of different Tucson attorneys who specialize in DUI defense. As a retired attorney myself, I was especially interested in the different approaches advocated by the attorneys, and their willingness to go to trial if necessary to defend my rights. This was especially the case inasmuch as I deemed my arrest to be improper and principally motivated by my request to speak with an attorney at the scene, and my refusal to participate in field sobriety tests.

    After due consideration, I retained James Charnesky and his firm, and was extremely happy with the representation and handling of my case. James made intense studies of the arrest report and the police videotapes, and as a result generated several fruitful arguments which formed the bases for dismissal motions. At no time did he advocate the simple and lazy approach of pleading guilty and negotiating a sentence.

    In the end, and as the direct result of James’ efforts including police interviews and an extended evidentiary hearing, the Court dismissed all charges against me. Needless to say, I would recommend James and his firm to anyone unfortunate enough to be charged with DUI.

    • James handled my Domestic Violence matter.

    When I contacted James, he got to work on my case right away and gave me in great detail how this would all be handled. He kept me informed the whole way through. The outcome of it was better than I had imagined it would be. He was very professional, upfront and honest! I would highly recommend James and his law firm.

  4. I would not hire look for other options.

    • I do not recommend James Charnesky.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my DUI / DWI matter.

    I hired James Charnesky to assist me in a matter, once I had signed his agreement he pretty much threw out the case plan we discussed that lead me to retain him. Then encouraged me through fear of imprisonment to accept the plea,he essentially charged me $1500 dollars per hour for results I could have got from a public defender. I would not recommend!

    • I recommend James Charnesky.

    The law office of Charnesky and Dieglio is always one of the top referrals that I, and the DUI attorneys of Legal Defender's Office's Aggravated DUI team, give to anyone in need of the BEST DUI attorneys for representation. Not only does this firm get the best results for their clients, they are defense attorneys with moral integrity: They never promise good results and then push a plea. In addition, they are a firm that truly acts as a DUI attorney community resource.
