Leaving Scene of Accident Dismissed!
Best lawyer I ever used, pricey yes but delivers the results better than any other lawyer I used in the past. So definitely will recommend to my friends and family because the result is what counts.

Expensive but worth every penny!!
Attorney Aalsberg was the best decision I ever made. He got me the best results and got my case dismissed in one day - where everyone else was getting adjournments and extra fees for their clients. He is open, honest, hardworking, and always there to advise you through one of the most critical times that you may go through in your life.

Great experience
Amazing lawyer, H. Scott esq. Helped me out with my case for leaving the scene of an accident and got it dismissed with the other tickets down to a fine and no points. The best lawyer in the court room and his experience in this line of work is exponentially better than the rest of the lawyers I saw. I would definitely recommend this lawyer to all who need help.

Worth the Big Bucks to Hire Him
He's not cheap to hire in fact he was the highest quote I got. But I think I saved much by hiring him, because he got my criminal charge dismissed in one day. He knows the judges, the staff and even the prosecutor so your case is streamlined and doesn't take the multiple appearances other lawyers need which costs you time and money. This was outstanding!

Best Lawyer I Have Ever Hired Period
Had other lawyers in the past they were quick to take my money, but afterwards didn’t take my calls. Not only did Attorney Aalsberg get me a better result than them a dismissal, but immediately answered my calls and e-mails. He is the best.

Leaving scene and careless charge dismissed
Attorney Aalsberg is the best lawyer I have ever hired. His attention to detail, knowledge, and attentiveness is second to none. He may come across as stoic at first, however he is the most caring and responsive Attorney you could ask for. When winning your case really matters, Attorney Aalsberg delivers a fantastic result, every time . I know I have hired him on several occasions.

The Lawyer You Need
Today I thought I would either be in jail or not have a driver's license. But due to Attorneys Aalsberg great representation I am free man with a driver's license. Best Attorney I have ever hired, also the most expensive but was worth every penny as my freedom today is priceless.

Case Dismissed
The title says it all. Recommend by another lawyer who told me to only use him. Liked the fact he offered us a set fee instead of the hourly as we would have paid much more. Definitely would use him again.

Saved My Life
The result for my criminal charge was everything i dreamed of. He seems expensive but when you compare the results and services i got it was worth it. Unlike others in court i never worried one moment that he was not on my side. He was even in court before me and i was a half hour early. Note all the other peoples attorneys were late. This in and of itself tells you about his diligence to his clients. Simply he cares!

Best Lawyer Period
Best DWI Lawyer I had used others in the past and this was the first time my lawyer did something other than take my money. Yes he's more expensive but worth the extra bucks for the amazing result that he achieved. A lot of lawyers make promises he makes none but delivers.
