I retained Ms. Ciota in April 2012 for a probation violation. I had felony probation so I was facing prison time. Ms. Ciota was great when we first met and I agreed to pay her $2500 to help me avoid going to prison after having completed 3 out of 5 years of probation. I violated the probation for a dirty urine and had committed no new offenses. We exchanged e-mails and talked on the phone up until I was remanded to jail on a probation warrant. Her ideas for a defense were not very solid and we never had a good plan.
My last contact with miss Ciota was at a court hearing on June 11th 2012. The judge suggested sentencing on August 3rd and said he wanted to give me a conditional dischard, less likely a county year in jail, and least likely 1-3 years in state prison depending on an the probation report and attorneys agreements. I tried reaching Ms. Ciota that whole month and a half and she stopped talking to me. She did, however, find the time to ask family and friends to contribute more money for my defense. She wound up getting $4850 in total for a technical probation violation. I wound up getting 1-3 years in state prison.
Ms. Ciota failed to let me review my pre-sentence report that was written by probation. She failed to ever give me an itemized bill. She didn't even contact me from the last hearing until sentencing. I was very disappointed with her representation overall. She was given a letter of caution from the Attorney Grievance committee and I would caution anyone facing a serious case to think hard before handing her any money.

I was facing several points in my license and was very
Intimidated by the whole process as it was my first experience using a lawyer for this. She was very helpful and effective and I received a judgement as good or better than what she had me expecting!

I recently came into very serious legal trouble earlier this year. Just like many of you reading this, I never had any serious legal matters in my life. Overnight, because of a terrible mistake any of us could have made, my life changed overnight. It could happen to any of us. All of sudden, I found myself arrested: cuffed, photographed, and fingerprinted. I was horrified and instantly, I panicked. Then, I immediately thought of Amy. Amy had been my lawyer a few months ago on another legal manner (non-misdemeanor, non-criminal charges) where ALL of my 9 traffic charges were dropped! Dismissed. Completely. It was all because of Amy and her ability as an attorney. My life, as I knew it, and wanted to keep intact, was saved by her. Her skill, her knowledge, her tenacity, her availability, her respect for her clients, for other counselors, and her steadfast commitment, make her one of the strongest attorneys around. Regarding this latest, serious incident, as I said, without hesitation, I called Amy. First, as usual, she assured me and talked to me at length. Afterward, rapid-fire communication ensued between her and I, and opposing counsel. Finally, she made a phone call or two and I was cleared once again, given a slight slap on the wrist! None of my horrible fears came true, but would have had it not been for Amy. I am no longer considered a criminal, within a matter of a month! All of the above is true and happened within the last few months. Amy is at the top of her game. If you seriously need quick, winning results, call Amy. She will get right back to you.

Went from misdemeanor drug charge to violation to dismissal. You can't ask for any more than that. Amy was attentive, empathetic, supportive, creative and realistic. We knew where we were all along the way. She was truly an advocate.

Charges were reduced. Walked away with my licence and with just having to pay the ticket fees.

I had received 2 traffic violations and felt that there was reason to be concerned with my results. I reached out to Amy and right from the begining she made it seemless. Amy was accomodating to my schedule. Amy was able to speak to the DA and negotiate my violations with a great result.

I got 4 tickets at the same time! and was going way too FAST. My car got towed, and I got handcuffed! I was in a terrible position for the incident since I'm a foreigner and student in college. I called Amy, and she was tremendously helpful. She really helped me to get through this and made the best result out of this difficult situation. The lady from the DA's office wasn't willing to let me off easily and my violation looked heavy on paper, without Amy's help, it could turn out completely down hill. So I strongly suggest Amy if you are in need for a wonderful lawyer, specially students! Don't let the law beat you!

Attorney Amy Ciota represented me on a traffic legal matter where I had a lot to lose. Amy was there for me throughout, from beginning to the very end. When I felt I was losing hope, and reached out to her, Amy always took the time out of her busy schedule to reassure me that all was going to be all right. Amy knew my legal experiment was limited, and was there to explain everything to me.
Amy always managed to make me feel I was her number one client. That is an incredibly reassuring feeling, as normally attorneys are too rushed and hurried with responses and answers when asked, and sometimes you feel you get lost in the lawyer’s shuffle. I never felt that way with Amy as my lawyer. Attention like hers is priceless when you, as the client feel like your outcome could be seriously affected negatively. Amy never failed to return my calls, texts or emails.
Most importantly, she always had answers that were accurate, detailed, and clever.
Throughout the proceedings, Amy offered me apt and expert consideration to all of my concerns and she always exceeded my expectations. When in court with her Amy was well aware of her surroundings, i.e. she knows her way around a courtroom!
In the end Amy was able to get a sentence that could have been a possible felony charge, revocation of license and huge fines - ALL DISMISSED! I did research quite a few lawyers, before finally choosing Amy, and I chose her because of testimonials like these and extremely impressive word-of-mouth recommendations. Choosing Amy was one of the best decisions I have ever made. In one night, she managed to turn my life from possible doom to bliss. Yes, she’s that good. I promise you, you can’t go wrong with Amy at your side, regardless of your situation.
Whatever situation you are facing, you cannot go wrong with choosing Amy Ciota as your lawyer.

Amy Ciota did an excellent job representing me in a speeding violation. I travel a good distance to and from work, and I really couldn't afford more points on my license. She got the ticket reduced and basically did everything for me. I didn't have to do anything but pay her and show up in court. I would recommend her to anyone looking for assistance with traffic violations or DWI/DUIs. She was Great.
