Beyond knowledgeable and professional
Mr. Funk was able to work a miracle. My husband had 21 felonies, with prior felonies in another state. Alex knows his law and is able to grasp any little detail that I feel most attorneys wouldn't be able to see. He has my juvenile sons case and is handling a possible case on myself. Alex and is assistant Kristy are very professional. Always kept ne informed and always honest and upfront. They both empathize with my situation. I recommend Alex in any case within his scope of practice. I trusted Alex with my husband's life and also my sons and would do it all over again.

Astute Barrister At Law
Attorney Alex W Funk is not only great at what he does. He cares about each individual's personal and legal circumstances. He is motivated by getting the very best for each client. He and his team care about people. Most people do not get into legal trouble because they are bad; it is mainly bad luck and unfortunate circumstances. I am very glad to have been defended by Attorney Funk. He fought for me like I was one of his own. I recommend him to any and all. Thank you Attorney Mr. Funk and Team. GK_Client.

Couldn't have asked for better representation
Alex was communicative, responsive, kind, knowledgable, and detail oriented. He made me feel at ease during a very stressful time in my life because it was clear by his actions and results that he knew the applicable law. He is well respected in the legal community and always prepared. I don't know how he could have done a better job. I had no complaints, and I am a lawyer too, so I know what matters to me when I work with other attorneys in all capacities.

DUI
So As a teen in the military I had maybe one of the rough days of my entire life and Alex made it so much easier. I honestly thought I would be setback for a long time in life even though due to COVID everything was pushed back, we got one of the best possible outcomes for the Case and now I can move forward with my life. I don’t plan on ever being in that situation again but Mr Funk was 1000% worth the money.

Attorney Alexander Funk was excellent and certainly the right support for me. He listened, educated me on the legal steps/process, and provided me with answers to every question. He was polite, empathetic, decisive, encouraging, and extremely knowledgeable, I received the results I hoped for and highly recommend his services

Good judgement, compassion for his clients, and great communication skills
I will always remember Alex encouraging me to interview multiple lawyers, which I had already been in the process of doing. That advice provided me with the confidence that he was honest and open to what is best for me. He has represented me fairly and strongly, never judging my actions, and always looking out for my best interest. He has made the not-so-great times in my life easier to handle and has shown evidence of his expertise through to the outcome.

Alex is amazing. He really helped me out with my 2nd DUI. I was scared to death of the outcome and he came through. If you get in a jam, call Alex. He is the man and every penny was worth it.

He’s simply the best!
Alex Funk is the BEST DUI lawyer around! He helped me get around my 3rd DUI and got it knocked down to Reckless driving- alcohol related. I was facing a felony and jail time. I was extremely anxious but Alex was able to help me, better than I thought possible! If you need help with your DUI, spare no expense and go with Alex. You most definitely won’t regret it!!

Look No Further, Just Make the Call
If you find yourself in need of upper tier legal representation for yourself or someone else within the State of Delaware, you can end your search right here and now. Over the years, I have worked with many attorneys. Some were bad, some were good and, every once in awhile, a great one would appear and rise above the rest. Alex Funk is one of the great ones. As a professional who has had many dealings with the legal system, both personally and professionally, I can tell you with total confidence that Alexander Funk and his assistant LIsa Solloway and the rest of the staff at Curley, Dodge, Fitzgerald & Funk should immediately become your "go to" team for professional, competent, compassionate and comprehensive legal representation on all matters, great and small. This impressive group will carefully listen, assess and advise on whatever legal issues you may be facing and carefully guide you through our maze of a legal system. I can tell you from personal experience that good legal outcomes have everything to do with proper and competent representation. With that thought in mind, set up an initial consultation with Alex Funk and you will immediately understand that you are dealing with a highly skilled professional that will advocate for your cause with great integrity and tenacity. In short, he will make your struggle his own and will serve your best interests every step of the way as fights for the best outcome possible on your behalf. In my particular case, Mr. Funk and his team guided me through the intense Delaware Pardon process and greatly assisted me in achieving a very favorable outcome for a an aged domestic matter 27 years after the fact. Mine most certainly was not the biggest matter on his calendar but, he treated it as if it were. I have never been much on writing online reviews but, I believe that this lawyer should get proper credit for exceptional performance. There is "no fluff" in this review. My opinion here is honest and forthright and best represents my own personal experience with Alex Funk and assistant Lisa Solloway. My ultimate goal here is not to promote this particular attorney. Rather, I am hoping to offer an honest and accurate opinion that will help others by encouraging them to reach out to Mr. Funk for help with whatever legal questions you may have. It could very well turn out to be the most important choice you have ever made for yourself.

Thank you !!!!
My daughter got caught up in a serious situation as a mother it is extremely hard to put your faith into someone else fighting for your child and I trusted Mr. Funk and I am so glad I did . He guided us and was there for us and he truly believed in everything he was doing which made it easier for us to get through. My family n I are truly blessed and very thankful for Mr. Funk in our worst time he made our days brighter. I honestly can not thank him enough for his support and his continued support . As parents we only pray we make the right decisions when it comes to our children so when you hit a huge mountain in your life you feel alone and you feel that no ones believes or understand you but Mr. Funk a complete stranger took us and guided us through everything. I truly wish there was more I could do to thank him . He will always be in our prayers .. When your world is falling apart please reach out to Mr. Funk and give him a chance to prove what his true abilities are . Mr. Funk thank you , thank you , we will forever be grateful to you !!!! Best laywer hands Down . God bless

Awesome Lawyer
I got my second DUI right before summer. Mr. Funk was the first lawyer I contacted and knew immediately following the consultation he was the best choice. He assured me that he would help me through this and most importantly he would get me out of the jail time I could have been faced with. I COULD NOT GO TO JAIL! When I was at the DMV to get my temporary license the guy working said I had the best lawyer in Dover. I didn't know this at the time but now I agree with him 100%. Once my court date came around I was charged with Reckless Driving Alcohol Related, instead of a DUI. Though it's not something to be proud I am thankful Mr. Funk. He is personable and very helpful during this difficult time. That being said if you have a DUI charge and are looking for a lawyer, Mr. Funk is your guy, and I would definitely recommend hiring him.

LAWYER GOD
The first time I ever had charges in my life I was certain my future was taken from me. I had 3+ felony Drug Dealing charges at that.. Looking around online for a lawyer and consulting with them all in my area, something about Mr.Funk and his team gravitated him to me as the guy that would rescue me and keep my future BRIGHT! Our first meeting going over the case upon me, his words were “ I'm not a fairy that can sprinkle magic dust on the case and make it go away like most people think lawyers do/are, but i think you are gonna be fine”. As i appeared in superior court and left out to go over my verdict he received for me after his work was done.. IN FACT he actually had me thinking he was a fairy that sprinkled his magic dust, and he saved my future with a simple program that would, upon completion, have all my charges dropped and off of my record to keep it clean as a whistle. He and his assistants down to the most kind lady at the front desk in-office made me feel like i was in the best legal representation for criminal defense in DELAWARE! I thank God and him everyday it crosses my mind how my life could have been ruined over a mistake. I recommend any criminal defense needed to contact Alexander W. Funk to represent you for your charges to stay out of jail and continue on with smarter decisions to live on with you life legally and on the right path.. TRUST ME . He will grant that journey for you. Also, unlike others that charge outrageous prices, he is beyond affordable for his work skill and a pleasure to do business with. Your so appreciated ! -GodBless

Mr. Funk and his team were very down to earth and easy to talk to throughout the entire process. I really feel like they cared about me and my case. Communication is key and we all had excellent communication before, during, and after my case was settled. He was able to ease my mind which allowed me to focus and carry through with my daily life. Thank you to the entire team!

Extremely satisfied
Alex defended our son against several charges at once. From the first consult he inspired our confidence. Throughout the process he was available to us, promptly responsive to any concerns, presented us with multiple strategies he would later employ, and was relentless in his efforts to secure the best possible outcome, which he did. He is very resourceful, exploring every possibility for an effective defense. We felt our case was important to him and he never gave up. We would certainly hire him again. He does not disappoint.

DUI Lawyer
I hired Mr Funk after reading all of the positive reviews here on Avvo. I am not from Delaware so when I got charged with a DUI I had no idea where to look. I had a bac of .138, but a rather clean record beyond that. From our first meeting he was very respectful and straight forward about the possibilities of my case. I promise that he has your best interests in mind. Listen to him and he’ll help you get your peace of mind and life back. He was able to secure me a very favorable ruling, partially because I took his advice of enrolling into a dui education program early (before any judgement). His price was very reasonable and offers great payment plans. If you need a lawyer for any civil matter, I promise you won’t regret choosing Alex Funk.

Highly Recommended
Mr. Funk was undoubtedly presented with a very unusual case when he took me on as a client, as any other lawyer surely would’ve ushered me out the door of their office after they heard my story! He reviewed the case and all of its oddities and told me what steps we needed to take. He was confident after reviewing the medical documentation/evidence that was gained over the 5 months, that we would have a relatively strong case against the charges. The charges were very serious. I had always been (still am) a law abiding citizen so all of this was very new to me, it was very stressful, he was understanding in that aspect as well. He was able to compile enough documentation to have the charges dismissed before going to trial and I couldn’t have been more relieved. My family and I are very grateful for the outcome. He is very professional and I would highly recommend Mr. Funk and the firm.

Great lawyer
Explained everything to me in language I could understand. Told me all my options and gave me great recommendations and how it applied to me, given that I’m in a far away state. Made the process as painless as possible and I feel very luck to have chosen him as my representative. Chose him due to his 5 star review and now I know first hand why. If you’re hesitant about hiring him DONT be. He’s all about that action and no frills.

Professional
I hired Mr. Funk immediately after meeting him for representation in my DUI case due to his emanating aura. His demeanor and knowledge of the law gave me confidence throughout the entire process that, regardless of the outcome of my case, I would be provided with the best representation available. In the end, I accepted a plea for driving recklessly alchohol related; a conclusion that originally was not even presented as the best possible outcome, leaving me ecstatic. Mr. Funknown delivers, period.
