When I recieved my DUI charge the first person I contacted was Dallas Cooney and because of the severity of my charge (2nd strike) Dallas took the case personally. Boy was it worth it to have Dallas and his team on the case. I was facing certain jail time and years of restrictions if not a complete loss of driving priviledges. It was very serious but Dallas managed to take what looked like an open and shut DUI case for the prosecution and have my ticket reduced to a Reckless Driving Charge with substantially less consequences as my DUI charge would have been. Needless to say the entire experience has "scared me straight" and I would never drink and drive again if drink at all! Dallas was always straight with me and kept the worst possible scenerio at the forefront of my mind and when I recieved a letter from the Department of Licensing that all charges had been dropped against me I just couldn't believe my good fortune. Now was the next test of the criminal charges. Somehow Dallas was able to come to an understanding with the prosecutor and my charge was reduced to a reckless driving ticket which itself had some pretty stiff penalties but nothing compared to the original charge. It felt like a miracle. In fact it was. Dallas was great to work with and very personable. Though he kept me abreast of the severity of the charges and possible consequences he always seemed to inspire confidence regardless of the outcome. I just felt the entire time that I had the best possible person in my court. The fact is, even if the outcome was not as favorable as it ended up being for me, I couldn't think of another attourney I would have represent me. Just an amazing experience all the way around and the result being a reduced charge and a changed man all at the same time. Thank you Dallas.

Dallas showed a very knowledgeable understanding of the law and how it pertained to my case and was able to point out many small details in the police report that I thought was routine paperwork. He was able to point out discrepancies without disrespecting the letter of the law or those attempting to enforce it. He was very honest with me and about the probable outcome of my case, and to be honest it looked bleak on a statistical viewpoint. That did not in any way prevent him from presenting my case as though he knew we were in the right and would win. He remained personable yet professional in my communications with him and was very timely to let me know updates and outcomes every step of the way. I would and have recommended Dallas Cooney to anyone I know that may need legal assistance. By the way, we won.

I hired Dallas Cooney for a ticket I got. I found Dallas to be very informative and helpful regarding my concern that may affect my driving record. Not only did Dallas get it dismissed, but took care of my matter in a very short time. Although it has been a few years since Dallas got my ticket was dismissed, I have gone to him for advice on several occasions since and would highly recommend Dallas Cooney for any legal matter.

I can't recommend this man enough. He helped me get through a difficult time and was able to win a case for me that I thought was a lost cause. Because of him, I was able to keep my license and continue going to school. If you're looking for a great lawyer that will do everything he can for you, Dallas is your man.
