Best representation
Ian is most knowledgeable, efficient and qualifying attorney that you want to have by your side as a defense attorney. If you ever have the misfortune of finding yourself accused or charge of a DWI /DUI as I did then Ian is who you would want as your defense attorney. In my years of working experience interacting with many successful people, I learned that many of them lock 2 important qualities: patience, and the lock of professional bedside manners. You will learn quickly that Ian has been blessed with these two qualities. So that you can understand what I am trying to convey here, I have to make you aware that I have a moderate thick accent, hard to understand for some people at times. From the time I spoke with Ian I realized that he was very professional and he showed me this from the beginning to the end. I felt very comfortable asking him questions. He listen to everything I had to say, I never felt inadequate when he talked to me, which was very important to me. He believed in my innocence and never backed down. The communication was very easy between us. I was able to get hold of him at any time via phone, email, text. I can actually say that Ian is technologically efficient which is what you need now days as an attorney. I am very happy with my results. I was acquitted of the DWI charge. My family and I are able to move on with our lives and put this in the past. Thank you Ian. I am glad that I contacted Anelli-Xavier and even happier that Ian Penders is in your team. My experience was like traveling or navigating in first class.

Great representation
Ian answered any questions I had about my case and communication was excellent. I could contact him by phone and email and was not charged any extra for getting ahold of him. Ultimately, he and his team were able to knock my aggrieved dwi charge down to dwai, a non-criminal disposition. I am very satisfied with this result. I'm glad I went with Anelli-Xavier and Ian and his team. They know what they are doing.
