In July of 2008, I was stopped and arrested for suspician of DUI in Los Angeles County. I had never been in trouble or arrested before so this was the first time I needed an attorney for anything. I was honestly terrified about what to do, but I knew I'd definitely need an attorney. In restrospect, I should have interviewed several attorneys before selecting one, because it's the smart thing to do, but I was scared and wanted to take action quickly. I connected a well-known DUI law firm on the internet, signed a retainer after an initial consultation, and then the firm assigned Shannon Wiezorek to my case. Probably not the best way to go about it, but that being said, I think I was lucky to have had Shannon Wiezorek working on my case. She was able to negotiate a really good plea deal for me in the legal phase of my case. Instead of DUI, I was able to plea to Exhibition of Speed and probation. I found out from others, who also went through the DUI process, that I was lucky to get that deal. Unfortunatey, I was not as lucky at my DMV hearing. We chose a strategy that was rejected by the hearing officer, but I understand that a vast majority of people do not succeed at the DMV. Overall, I think Shannon is knowlegable about DUI/DWI law and tried to do the best for me. She was also responsive to my inqueries during my case as well as afterward when I had follow-up questions. I am not sure if Shannon is still with the firm that I contacted, because the last time I checked their website, she was not listed as a member of their team of attorneys. She was in good standing with the California Bar Association at the time of my case, and per their website, I believe she still is. Based on my experience with her, I would recommed her services for a DUI/DWI case.
Shannon is not only knowledgeable concerning court room tactics and procedure but she is also dedicated to her clients no matter how tough the situation. She listens carefully to her clients needs and their concerns and responds with a level of empathy and tact that is rarely seen in this line of work. I was so grateful when she was assigned to my case and despite the circumstances there was never any doubt in my mind that she had my best interests at heart. She was my greatest advocate during the most difficult period in my life.
Ms. Wiezorek represented me in a few traffic cases. She really listened to my concerns and did a great job. The results she got were well above what I was expecting. I wouldn't hesitate to very highly recommend her to anyone with a criminal case.
Shannon handled my case and kept me up to date without having to ask.
