The guy you want in your corner when the chips are down.
Being charged with a crime is scary. Mr. Steinmetz eased by fears. When I met with Mr. Steinmetz, he carefully reviewed the evidence in my case with me and went over a variety of possible scenarios. He started formulating a game plan before our intial consultation was even over and pointed out a variety of potential problems with the state's evidence. I was on the fence about whether to plead or try the case. Mr. Steinmetz urged me to stand strong and not accept the state's offer, even though it assured I wouldn't be going to jail. Mr. Steinmetz explained the problems witht he prosecution's case and tried the case. Not only did Mr. Steinmetz secure a not guilty result in court, the prosecutor was clearly pissed. Because of Mr. Steinmetz's willingness to stand firm, even when an easy option presented by the state, I was able to walk away free and get my case expunged in a very short time. I will definitely return to Mr. Steinmetz if I ever need an attorney again.

Mr. Steinmetz is a great attorney!
Hiring Mr. Steinmetz was the best decision I made. His expertise gave me confidence going to court. Mr. Steinmetz recommended against the deal offered by the prosecutor in my case. We took the case to trial and Mr. Steinmetz won! I would definite use Rick if I ever have to go to court again.
