  • Richard Edward Molsby

    I endorse this lawyer. If a family member that I liked, or good friend of mine, ever had the need for a criminal defense attorney, I would strongly suggest a call to Alison. She know the Courts and has all the contacts that, along with tremendous experience, would give her client the best opportunity to prevail, in my opinion. Like many defense attorneys, she handles a lot of DUI cases, but she also handles very serious felony charges. Prosecutors know she will take cases to trial and that awareness often makes her able to achieve favorable plea deals when appropriate.
