Brooke and her staff handled my case fantastic. The professionalism is 2nd to none. I never had to wonder about anything, I was fully updated with information no matter how minor or important, it seemed like any time I thought I had a question I was contacted even before I thought to call and ask.it.My infraction was reduced due to Brooke's experience and expertise in her field. If I ever need a lawyer again I would contact Brooke first even if the case was for something out of her field for advise. Anyone who needs a lawyer should contact Brooke to receive the best representation available.

My husband was arrested for a DUI. I called every lawyer I could find and ended up choosing Ms. Elia to handle our case. She is very personable, caring, and attentive. Her assistant, as well as Brooke herself, always kept us up to date on everything. We were never left wondering what was going on with the case. She subpoenaed the arresting officer and got him to admit that he lied on his police report (because he did). When it came to the DMV hearing, we won (which happens in less than 10% of hearings). My husband never had to have his license revoked, he never had to serve time, or anything. My husband has no charges against him in the civil court. It was a huge relief to know that we did not have to do a thing when we hired Ms. Elia; she definitely made us feel at ease in such a difficult time. My husband and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND her.

Scared and anxious about what was going to happen to me, I contacted Attorney Elia.
This was the best decision I made for myself and my future.
My first meeting, her and her staff made me feel welcomed . She truly tries her best to create a trusting atmosphere to best understand her clients.
Attorney Elia and her secretary Rosie made me feel assured and calm. Professional. clear, approachable and open, these are the words to describe our relationship.
Through my whole journey, I was kept well informed regarding my court cases, the consequences, and the plan of action my attorney was going to take to help me. If there were any questions on my mind or concerns, she would respond to my emails and calls quickly.
If my family, friends or even strangers ever needed someone to defend them in court, I would highly recommend Attorney Elia. I am forever thankful towards Attorney Elia.
She will definitely fight for you. She got all of my charges dismissed. She will work with you and get you the best results.

I never had any legal issues or the need for an attorney so when I was charged with a DUI I didn't know where to turn. I was lucky to find Brooke through the recommendation of another attorney my sister went to school with. I read her reviews here on Avvo and set up an appointment to meet her. Upon meeting Brooke I immediately felt confident that she could help me. Brooke and her staff handled everything and kept me informed of my case every step of the way. We won the DMV hearing and ultimately got the DUI reduced to a Wet Reckless. Brooke is extremely knowledgeable in DUI matters, understanding that there is so much on the line for her client, and is willing to go the extra mile to be sure her client receives the best legal defense possible. She was always willing to explain the various legal proceedings and took the time to make sure I understood all my options. I would definitely recommend Brooke to anyone who needed a lawyer.

When I got my ticket I was panicked and scared. After an Internet search I came across Elia law office and called. Brooke Elia was quick to calm me down and explain all of my options to me. Brooke kept me up to date the whole way through my case, she attended all the court dates for me and would give me progress updates on everything she did. In the end Brooke was able to get my case dismissed which was amazing for a young adult like me. Having a ticket on my record would have buried me in fines and insurance spikes. Brooke Elia is the best attorney I have ever worked with and a true lifesaver. I highly recommend her to anyone.

The law office of Brooke D Eno Elia was actually recommended to me by a different lawyer in the beginning due to her knowledge and experience with my case. Brooke was able to revive a case from over 5 years and was able to have the judge expunge my case. I recall when we first talked over the phone she answered all my questions and concerns; that very day she took the time to meet with me in person to begin the process. Over the course of the process her legal assistant Rosie kept close communication with me regarding any updates bringing me a sense of calmness. Brooke drafted all the paper work needed for the District Attorney's, Court, and attended on my behalf the court hearing. Brooke impressed upon me a feeling of care and knowledge and I would recommend her services to anyone. I am positive she will continue with great success in her practice.

Up until this point I had yet to face any kind of trouble with the law, a close family member had and from that experience I knew the importance of having an attorney by my side. I am a sceptic and I didn't know were to start after reviewing profiles on AVVO I called Elia Law.
From the first call I knew then I had made the best choice Rosie was kind and friendly.
When I spoke with Brooke she listened to me with concern she answered all my questions she walked me through the process I was very pleased to know that I would not need to appear in court that she would appear on my behalf Brooke reassured me she would do all that she could to help me. Needless to say that night I slept peaceful.
Communication was excellent I knew at all times what was going on. By the second hearing Brooke had my case dismissed.
I highly recommend attorney Brooke Elia she's a genuine caring person, a professional yet down to earth.
Thank you again Brooke!

I had never gotten into trouble with the law, and I had no idea what to do when I got my DUI. I called Brooke not knowing what to do, or what to expect. I am so glad I went to Brooke Elia. Brooke was absolutely amazing. She explained everything very clearly, and fought hard for me. I originally had two misdemeanor counts associated with drinking and driving, however, she got it down to a Wet Reckless. I had just left a bar and the police officer who pulled me over was right across the street, waiting for someone to leave. I later blew a .12. She fought hard at all my hearings and gathered EVERY piece of information, and that is why she was successful in getting my DUI reduced. She fought hard for my rights and prevailed. She was very trustworthy and loyal. She is a true, genuine person, who will fight for you till the very end. I would definitely recommend Brooke to anyone who is in trouble with the law. No one will out work her, and she WILL gather ALL the evidence, and fight for you. She went above and beyond my expectations, and the cases outcome proves it. Thank you so much for fighting for me, Brooke!

I am so thankful and happy that I chose to have Brooke defend me for my DUI case. Throughout the whole process, she was so helpful and knowledgeable with everything. Brooke and her team put my mind at ease and their compassion was a blessing to me. After 9 months, my DUI charges were dropped to a 'wet and reckless' charge which was such a huge victory for me! During the process, I was always 100% sure that Brooke was defending me in an excellent manner. Her knowledge, dedication, support, and close attention to details makes her an amazing attorney. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of legal advice or support.

I had a9 year old case that I needed to get resolved. We didn't know which lawyer to hire but Brooke came recommended by my brother so I'd give it a try. Oh was I so impressed. Not only is she knowledgeable, professional, she is also very down to earth and put my mind at ease. She also kept me informed at all times regarding my case. What's even better was the outcome of my case that she was able to do. I wouldn't look anywhere else for an attorney. Thank You Brooke for everything that you did.
