Dedicated and Knowledgeable
I contacted Neil when I was charged with a DWI. We had a 30 minute meeting and I knew he was the right person to hire for my case. He explained the process and the best way to proceed. Neil did a great job at the trial and I was found not guilty. Additionally, Neil always returned my calls and was willing to answer any questions I had.

Excellent Job
Neil represented me on a criminal charge is Rochester City Court. Neil has a great knowledge of the law but more importantly took the time to explain the process to me. This put my mind at ease and the made the process less scary. I would recommend Neil to anyone that finds themself with a criminal charge.
