I hired Ms. Person a few months ago to represent me on a DUI charge. I couldn’t be more pleased with the way Donna fought for me, and in the end, got me a great deal to end the case without the huge expense of going to Trial. Before this DUI, I was lucky enough to never have needed a lawyer. But I have friends and acquaintances that have got into trouble before and had to have legal counsel. I’ve heard horror stories about huge legal bills, phone calls not being returned, lack of communication, no aggressiveness in court, etc. Donna never disappointed me in any of these areas.
From the start Donna was friendly and personable, and made me feel that she was really on my side. She didn’t put on any airs and was easy to talk to. She returned my calls promptly and kept me up to date on my case. Most important, Donna listened to me before telling me the up sides and down sides of my case. She explained the risks if I wanted to fight the charges, and also explained the options if I wanted to negotiate a plea bargain.
At the first court date, I got a chance to see how sharp and aggressive Donna was in court. I left feeling ready to fight the case all the way. But eventually, I realized it was a better overall decision to take a plea bargain. My choice to settle was partly based on the risks I faced if I lost at trial, but even more because of the great deal Donna was able to negotiate on my behalf.
Getting a Dui was no fun, and I don’t plan on ever getting one again. But if I do, I will not hesitate to call Donna. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone that gets into legal trouble and needs a tough, aggressive, but fair attorney at a reasonable price.
