Attorney Thygerson was there for me and I'm truly grateful for his excellent representation. I recommend Attorney Thygerson to anyone in need of an competent and knowledgeable attorney. You will not regret this decision.

  • Best DWI Lawyer

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Chris

    I was arrested for DWI following a car accident. I met with a couple of lawyers who had been referred to me by friends of my parents. They answered most of my questions but indicated that my license would be automaticcaly suspended because of the arrest and I would have to install a device in my car so I could drive. Both of the attorneys told me that there was no way around this. I was extremely disappointed. I was then recommended to Mr. Thygerson. he could tell I was upset and agreed to meet with me on a Saturday to discuss my case. It was at this meeting that I learned that the suspension of my license was not automatic and that I could have a hearing to fight the suspension. As Mr. Thygerson asked me more detailed questions about the arrest and what happened at the Westport Police department, he started to develop a strategy to fight the suspension. The other attorneys apparently didn't realize you could or should have a hearing. Mr. Thygerson's knowledge and demeanor was extremely reassuring. So I hired him. He requested a hearing at the DMV, prepared me to testify at the hearing and we WON!!. My license did not get suspended and I do not have to suffer the embarassment of having a breath device in my car. I am extremely grateful for his help and guidance as he also convinced the judge to grant my application for the education program even though the prosecutor objected. He knew exactly what to say and his courtroom style was commanding and eloquent. would recommend him to anyone in need of a great DWI lawyer in a heartbeat.

  • Phenomenal DWI Lawyer

    5.0 stars

    Posted by John

    I have been arrested 3 times over the years for DWI. Luckily, I had John's cell number when I got my most recent arrest. Not sure what to do at the police station John promptly answered my call (in the middle of the night) and took charge of the situation. Told me exactly what I could and couldn't do and spoke to the officers for me. Since this was my 3rd arrest the prosecutors were demanding jail time and this would be a felony on my record.. Because of the advice he gave me I did not take the breath test. Ultimately, I decided to take the case to trial and paid John to do everything in hiss power to keep me out of jail.
    Net result: NO JAIL, NO FELONY!!!
    I'm not sure exactly what he did or how he did it but right before jury selection the prosecutor offered me the chance to plead as a first timer thereby avoiding any jail and no felony. Apparently, there were some issues that John discovered regarding how the field tests were conducyted and something about Miranda issues. Honestly, I could care less how he did it and am eternally grateful that he was there for me every step of the way! I recommend him to anyone looking fan a fighter to be in their corner!

  • DUI

    Attorney Thygerson was highly professional, effective and efficient in my first offense DUI case. I had 4 counts against me including DUI. He showed interest and understanding and advised me well of the alcohol education program in CT which I followed. In the end my record was cleared. He knows the courts, the DMV and the system well. I selected Atty. Thygerson based on his excellent ratings, real glad I did.

  • Helped me over the phone

    I consulted with John over the phone regarding an unfair civil demand. He told me not to worry that it was a scare tactic, as I previously hoped would be the case. In just two minutes, I, a complete stranger, was taken care of and protected by this man. Thank you John.

  • He just doesn't quit for you

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Gregory

    I am no stranger to the court system and have had my share of lawyers represent me. John is probably the harderst working one I ever had represent me. When we first met, he told me what his retainer was and assured me that no matter what it woud not become more expensive unless I wanted a trial. Unfortunately for him I kinda screwed up a few times during the course of the case and he had to go to bat for me with the judge and the prosecuter more times than he thought when we first met. But, he never complained about the extra work he had to do for me and was really forceful with the judge when the judge wanted to raise my bond. The time it took to resolve my case was way longer than he thought it would be but that was because I screwed up. During the entire case he was a gentleman and professional and when I offered him more money he told me a deal is a deal and he is a big boy and all that he asks from me is that I refer future clients to him that need an attorney in the criminal courts. I can assure you that he is THE ONLY GUY that I will refer people to and I couldn't be happier or more grateful for the work he did for me.

  • Outstanding Performance

    Posted by Ryan

    From the moment I hired Mr. Thygerson, I was impressed. He handled my case with a high level of efficiency and dedication.
    Mr Thygerson stayed true to his word and told me if I completed all classes and community service he and the courts required of me to, i would be able to put this past me and move on with my life.
    Well after completing the states minimum requirements, Mr Thygerson was able to keep my criminal record clean and helped me and my family through the entire process and today I finally am able to move on with my life. Not only did he help me in my court proceeding but I am better off today because of the choices I was advised to make. If given the chance, I would refer Mr Thugerson one hundred times over and would advise anyone with legal troubles to inquire to him and his practice.

    Thank You John!

    After 15 years with the same car insurance I missed a payment due to my divorce/change of address/mail was nor forwarded properly. Without John Thygerson's help I was looking at a mandatory 30 day suspension of my drivers license. He was able to get the whole ticked dismissed. You definitely want this guy on your side.

  • A true life saver

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Christine

    I was arrested for a DWI following a serious car accident. My first lawyer kept getting the case continued and kept telling me not to worry that "these things take time". After 6 or 7 months of going back and forth to court my lawyer suddenly tells me the prosecutor added a felony charge because a person in the other car was injured. Whats worse is my lawyer tells me that the prosecutor also wants me to go to jail and the judge agrees with him!! I freaked out and began looking for another lawyer since I really didn't feel like my first lawyer had his head in the game. I contacted John Thygerson for a consultation. We met and I immediately felt comfortable with him. He told me he doesn't like replacing lawyers and that I should really consider what I wanted to do. I told him that I wanted him to represent me and I wasn't going to take no for an answer. Best decision I made. John immediately went to work on my case. Kept me informed all the way. And, most importantly, KEPT ME OUT OF JAIL!!
    I understand that I screwed up but John made me feel at ease and was always available to answer all of my questions. Hopefully I will never need a criminal defense lawyer again but if I do John is my guy.

  • AWESOME ATTORNEY!!

    Posted by James

    I was charged with felony insurance fraud based upon ridiculous misperceptions by an insurance company. I was referred to John by another attorney and could not have been happier with the results. He immediately put me at ease and quickly developed a game plan towards proving my innocence. He was always available by cell to answer my questions and address my concerns. After a number of court appearances and a meeting with the prosecutor and the judge the charges were ultimately dropped!

    I have his cell number programmed into my phone and would recommend him in a heartbeat.
