I was referred to Attorney Fred Slone by a coworker. He and 2 others had successfully been defended from dui charges. I was arrested for dui on a Saturday night. Fred returned my Sunday call within a very short time. He and his staff immediately began paperwork for a DMV hearing. This postponed my CDL forfeiture, which would have immediately cost me my job.
I had very difficult circumstances stacked against me. I had been cooperative with the arresting trooper. Despite this, Fred was able to determine my "due process" had been violated. Fred successfully defended me in the DMV hearing, resulting in NO loss of CDL!
I was able to witness both Fred (and Landon) at work in the courtroom. They were very impressive in action, and it was obvious I made the correct choice by seeking their representation. Ultimately, Fred was able to get my breath test dismissed, and eventually the state dropped my entire case! No charges!
I have never needed representation before this. Fred, Landon, Dawn, and Cynthia did an excellent job helping me through this crisis. They answered all my questions promptly, and were courteous and understanding. All correspondence (emails, recordings, etc.) Arrived timely, and instructions were clear. Any additional paperwork requests I had to stay in compliance with my employer, were handled without hesitation. Fred's fee contract kept me from guessing when I was getting a bill, and how much it was going to be.
I know not everyone is perfect. Good people make bad decisions. If you or someone you know is in the same boat I was, you CAN NOT afford to wait. You CAN NOT afford to go it without Attorney Fred Slone! I am 100% confident Fred will give you your best opportunity for success, just like he did for me.
I was referred by a friend to Fred Slone after a DUI charge. After I called his office, Mr. Slone met with me immediately and agreed to take my case. He explained in plain language my situation and the options that were available. He mapped out a course of action and worked very hard on my behalf. What especially impressed me was the willingness of Mr. Slone to take my many calls throughout the process. It was a very stressful situation and he was always available to answer questions and offer advice. The charges were eventually reduced due to the excellent work of Mr. Slone. I would highly recommend Mr. Slone to anyone seeking legal representation.
I was extremely pleased with Fred Sloan and the job that he performed with my case. From the beginning, Fred was helpful with explaining my options and letting me know how the process would work. He never once tried to push me one direction or the other on whether to bring my case to trial or not and left the decision in my hands. His firm handled the administrative work that was necessary for the court, which made it much easier on me.
Once I decided to bring the case to trial, Fred made sure to get all of the evidence for the case and was properly prepared for the trial once it began. His recommendations on certain aspects of the case, such as which evidence to include and his knowledge of the law to disqualify other evidence proved to be key in the case.
At the trial, Fred was extremely knowledgable and made sure to include my input in important decisions such as jury selection, after asking very informative questions during the selection process. Once evidence was presented Fred did an outstanding job on the cross examination of the prosecutors witnesses, which was another key aspect of the trial.
My overall experience with Fred Sloan and his firm was great and I would highly recommend them, especially for cases that are related to a DUI offense.
Mr Slone took the time to get all the information from my case and review all documents and video. His dedication to his work and the facts helped my case against the charge against me. His meticulous cross examination at the hearing proved how well he took the time reviewing my case from counting steps on the sobriety test to analyzing the video over and over, while looking for discrepancies in the officers written report and testimony. His hard work and experience got my case dismissed and my life back. Mr Slone is an amazing lawyer, he answered all my questions in a timely manner no matter big or small. I would recommend him to anyone needing help like I did.
He didn't have very good personal skills. If it wasn't for his assistant lawyer Erin I would've driven myself insane. Erin was wonderful.
