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.

Great Lawyer No Points
Hired him for a speeding ticket because a friend of mine had used him before and told me he was great. As expected he was great and so glad I choose him. Sure he is more expensive but the better results were well worth it. Also I liked that he walks you through the process unlike other attorneys in court making everything go smoothly.

Tickets Dismissed
I am a CDL driver so I can't have tickets. I knew he was expensive but I needed the best. I am so happy I hired him because my tickets were dismissed. getting an appointment with Attorney Aalsberg is not easy he makes you come in person no zoom calls or phone calls but he is worth seeing. My dismissal results speak for themselves. Thank you Attorney Aalsberg.

Top notch attorney
Scott is extremely professional. And as another reviewer wrote, he's great in court! Worth every penny. He doesn't try to sugar coat the truth, he tells it like it is. I like the fact that he's not scared to meet in person even during these Covid times.

When you need to win he comes through for you
Hired him a few days before my court case. I called up the office and liked that he gave an in person consultation. I wanted to meet my lawyer. His paralegal offered me an emergency appointment. I liked the fact that they followed strict Covid safety protocols. Fast forward I immediately hired him and i am so glad i did. He worked on my case immediately got one charge dismissed and the other down to just a small fine. Wow! I cant be happier with the service I can tell you everyone is right, he is expensive but I wouldn’t hire anyone else as he certainly does provide amazing results.

You Will Be Very Happy With The Results
You will meet with Mr. Aalsberg and he will tell you exactly what your looking at. He will then tell you what he can do and what he hopes he can do. In my case he did everything he said he could do and everything he hoped he could do. This was beyond my wildest expectations. He was worth every nickel.

Sarah
Very pleased with Attorney Aalsberg, attentive and professional in all capacities. Took much time to explain to me about charges and my case in detail. My case started as a felony charge and was downgraded to a non criminal civil fine. He was able to prove my innocence with his great skill and control of the courtroom He was very easy to work with and made this stressful process flow well. Great person to know, definitely recommended to friends and family. Expensive to pay, but worth every cent and more. Thanks again.

Top Notch Representation
Glad I hired him for my charge even though he is more expensive the results paid for themselves just in the points from DMV forget about the fact he saved me from jail time. By the way he has a great relationship with the court and prosecutor even though we were far away from his office everyone knows him.
