    Ive been specializing in criminal defense and dui over 40 years. Lately since the government has changed from Marijuana to DUI and "assault" to domestic bickering to real assault you need a lawyer as you can be jailed and lose gun rights, driving privileges etc.for these offenses Vijay is THE MAN if you are arrested in his geographic area.

  • Sanjay Stephen Schmidt

    I have known Vijay since law school. He is a dedicated and relentless advocate for his clients and has the seasoned litigation skills to get the job done in the courtroom. I would recommend Vijay without hesitation to anyone charged with a crime, who needs an aggressive attorney to represent them in Vijay's geographical practice area.
