"Mr. Pike, all due respect to you, because you`re clearly a great trial lawyer, but to heck with the eyewitness with a credibility problem. I mean, it`s not -- most of us go out on the porch to get the morning don`t get a bag full of the bodies of three to 10 people. So whatever you did I`m sure (your client) hopes you do it again."

DUI case
When a close family member was charged with an under age DUI, Attorney Pike was professional, knowledgeable, and demonstrated compassion in handling our case. in court, Mr. Pike was well prepared and was able to argue our case to assist in the reduction of charges. He kept our family well informed from the time we consulted with him right until the case was concluded. I would like to add that he responded promptly if we called with questions throughout the case.

Car Accident
Earlier this year, my automobile was severly damaged by a drunk driver. I contacted Attorney Pike for advice on what action I needed to take. He walked me through the steps on filing insurance claims, my rights as a victim and the process of the legal system for the defendant. Attorney Pike was compassionate, understanding and extremely knowledgeable of the legal system. He is a quintessential professional.
