Albert Fox
Attorney Albert Fox and his assistant Mark Carignan did an outstanding job representing me in an alleged local traffic law violation matter. I can recommend their legal services without reservation.

Ticket Dismissed
Attorney Chadwick did a great job at representing me for a traffic ticket. He stayed on top of the court date the was postponed and was aware of the changes. He kept me informed along the way, and he was very responsive when I reached out to him.

Speeding Ticket Thrown Out
I was very happy with Chadwick Law. I hired them for a speeding ticket in Vermont. I filled out a form and provided a couple documents and then they took care of the rest. They did my telephone hearing for me and then let me know my ticket had been dismissed. It doesn't get any better than that!

Highly recommend - no points, no fine result!
I received a speeding ticket on a rural VT road due to the constant changes in speed limit and irregular signage (i.e. from 30 to 40 to 50 mph and then immediately back to 30 mph). As I am from out of state, I searched for a traffic lawyer and saw the consistent high ratings for Chadwick & Spensley PLLC. After an initial touchpoint and submission of a bit of paper, Attorney Chadwick took over from there and the office was responsive with any questions I had throughout. The result was a complete dismissal of the ticket--no points and no fine! I am deeply grateful for the support, the peace of mind and comfort (living 5+ hours away), and, of course, the ideal result. Highly recommend!

Professional, Responsive, Effective
Attorney Chadwick and his team were great to work with and very responsive. They guided me through the VT judicial process and as an out of state person with a traffic ticket, their help was invaluable. I highly recommend them without hesitation.

Geoff
Evan was hired to represent my daughter for a speeding ticket while traveling in Vermont from college to come home to Maine over February break. Evan was professional, courteous and well informed to assist. All responses were timely for any questions we had and the speeding ticket was dismissed. At all times we were kept informed of case progress. Support staff at the firm Chadwick Law LLC were also prompt, courteous and helpful in support of this case namely Johnathan Bratton and Nader Hashim.

Speeding Ticket Dismissed
Evan Chadwick and his team handled all aspects of the court case. He was able to have the ticket dismissed in court. The entire process was very easy. I live in Florida and handled everything over email. Thanks to the Chadwick team!

SO PLEASED
I am a mail carrier and an excessive speeding charge could have got me disqualified as a driver. I put my livelihood in the hands of Chad and Robb, and they did not disappoint! Whereas I had been in constant contact with Rob, might I add affable, knowledgeable, quick responses, Chad Got both tickets thrown out- the best money I have spent in a long time if not ever! Complete confidence in this firm!!
