Joe represented my 21 year old daughter in the fight of her life against the state of AZ, after she was the driver of a car that crashed down an embankment with a passenger on-board. During the course of the year-long defense that followed, Joe's knowledge of the law, and of the specific people representing the prosecution, proved valuable beyond words. What at 1st seemed like an inevitable guilty verdict, eventually resulted in the dismissal of the case by the judge. Joe's preparation, relentlessness, and savvy demeanor during the evidentary hearing, all contributed to a result beyond our wildest expectations. Anyone finding themselves in the unfortunate position of requiring legal defense for a DUI charge would be well served (and worth every penny) to engage the services of Mr. St. Louis. Our daughter can now get on with the life she deserves thanks to Joe and his team.
When I was arrested for a DUI I thought my life was over. I had a few consultations with other lawyers, but none of them seemed interested in my case or really acted like they cared. When I first met Joe he was very sympathetic and understanding and assured me that my life wasn't over and that I had he could build a great case for me. He was very honest and up front about everything from day one. Not only was Joe amazing, his staff was also understanding and prompt to respond to any questions I had about my case. Joe was able to get my all my charges dismissed and get my driving record expunged. My case was dismissed a few months ago and I am forever grateful! Joe helped me get a second chance and I will NEVER make the mistake to drink and drive ever again. If anyone is looking for a great DUI lawyer I would recommend him!! He's the one you want defending you!
I hired Joe for a case several years ago. He was very hard to get ahold of and after one year he decided he couldn't help. Good at stringing you along. Bad at delivering results.
From the moment I walked in I felt a sense of relief, From the the way the staff was so courteous and professional to my consultation with Mr. St. Louis. St. Louis was so very knowledgeable and open with all his ideas and concerns. I will forever be indebted to Mr. St. Louis he is an Amazing Trial Lawyer he literally saved my life...
I will forever appreciate my 2nd chance at life. Thank you also to Mrs. Mata her caring words and concern were PRICELESS...
When faced with hiring a DUI attorney, I looked at all of the reviews posted on AVVO for attorneys practicing in Tucson, AZ. We scheduled an initial meeting with Mr. St. Louis by first contacting Pat, his legal assistant. She was immediately very understanding of the situation and extremely sympathetic. After an informative meeting with Mr. St. Louis, we discussed our options and decided he understood the case very well and he was confident there would be a dismissal or acquittal if a court case was necessary. Well, today we received the news that the DUI case against my husband was dismissed and we have Mr. St. Louis and his very talented staff to thank for this. He really could have just gone forward with the court case (with an extra cost to us for attorney and expert fees), but he knew the State's case was very weak. He contacted the prosecutor's office and respectfully requested that they review the case for possible dismissal. A supervisory prosecutor reviewed the case, agreed with Mr. St. Louis and ALL charges were dropped including the civil violations. I would urge anyone faced with a DUI in Tucson (or surrounding areas), to hire Mr. St. Louis immediately and without ANY hesitation. It was a long process, but we were kept informed every step of the way and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. Signed - A thoroughly satisfied client.
My boyfriend a DUI cop told me to see Joe for my daughters dui. Joe made the nightmare go away! Yes, she was found not guilty and learned her lesson so life is wonderful THANK GOD! Recently a friend got a dui but did not want to pay the money for Joe.... she is no better off than if she had walked in a said GUILTY! Everyone at Nesci and St Louis treat you with respect and listen, your calls are returned and honestly they make it easy. You get what you pay for.... do you want your problem to go away? Our case was over almost two years ago and I still feel nothing but gratitude!
It was a very complex issue to resolve with a MAJOR international Insurance carrier regarding discrimination....
with out a doubt Joe made it all easy!!!!
I hold his work with the Highest regard and his ethics as good as they come I would recommend my best friend to work with Joe
I Know with out a doubt he continued on his Path with Integrity....
When I found myself needing DUI representation, a trusted friend made some calls and told me to call Joe. My case was complex, involving multiple counts, an audio recording, and blood testing.
Thoughout the course of my case, which took almost two years, Joe was simply impressive. We had hearings, filings, and motions to deal with (two red ropes full), and he navigated through the judicial system with complete expertise.
Last month my case went to jury trial. From jury selection to probing into the deep science of blood testing, he knows the right questions to ask and the right questions to raise; he also knows the right experts to bring in and the appropriate areas and content of information to present.
I was acquitted on all four counts. I'm confident my case would not have been resolved to this degree without Joe. I would, without hesitation, recommend him to anyone needing representation.
Joe and his team did a superior job for me! He handled my case with exceptional skill and great understanding of my situation. I was (at the time of my arrested) in the middle of an extremely nasty divorce. I was charged with 4 counts of DUI. Joe and his team developed an artful defense and I was found not guilty on all counts! Joe did a superior job of both winning my case and taking care of me thru an extremely emotional time. I highly recommend Joe St Louis, he is simply the best!
Mr. St Louis is one of the finest individuals that I have ever met. He not only represented me perfectly through a very difficult federal legal situation, but he also helped save my life from the disease of alcoholism and drug addiction. He could recognize that I needed help not just from the fact that I was shackled and in a red jump suit, but he could also see that I was a slave to my powerful disease. He helped me get out of federal prison, where I detoxed, out of the state of Arizona and into world class treatment center which was located in Oregon.
Recovery from my disease takes time; it is a process that only begins when I put the drinks and the drugs down. Joe was able to assist me in my recovery by keeping me out of the courtroom for over a year. That gave me time to heal, learn the truth about myself and it gave me time to learn how to do “the next right thing”. During that time, I accepted a plea bargain that included federal prison time. I took the plea because I was guilty of the crime, and the consequences could have been 15 times worse than the deal he negotiated. Joe was right there guiding me through the treacherous process of the federal legal system. I had faith that he knew what he was doing, which allowed me to focus on my recovery. He made it clear to me that he would represent my best interests until the very end.
Represent my best interests he certainly did! Ultimately, because I was given the opportunity to “do the next right thing” for 15 months before my sentencing hearing, I was sentenced to 5 years probation. That was a miracle, considering that I was guilty of a Zone D felony. My family and I will be forever grateful for Joe’s presence in our lives. He helped save my life and he helped keep me out of federal prison- what more needs to be said?
