I was facing a potential career killer of speeding 63/35.I just recently obtained my CDL and was told at anything over 15 would put me out of a job for years.I felt so depressed not knowing what to do.I contacted Monte and knew immediately that I couldn't go wrong with hiring him.He was very nice and helpful through the whole procedure.He was able to convince the judge of what it would do to my future career and she dropped it down to 49/35 which put me 14 under.28 cut in half and saved my career.If you need a lawyer who will fight for you please don't hesitate to hire this man,he is the best all around!

Honestly words couldn't explain. Went from a F and M to nothing. He literally when in knowing I would get off and didn't want to plea at all. Made me feel confident.

I received tickets traveling out of state and was completely beside myself . I contacted Atty Monte Kuglioski of the Legal Defense Center and they were very willing to help me and not only that but they helped to ease my fears . It was such a real experience... I was treated like a person not a number. Throughout the course of the proceeding he was very knowledgeable, advised me of every step of the process and even went to court in my abscence due to my work. As soon as he returned from court he called immediately to let me know what happened ... all dismissed ! And not only that but he sounded excited ... happy for me ! In the world we live in where we are often just numbers or cases .. not people ... this was truly refreshing to be treated as though I was so much more ! Thank you so much for your services ! I know if I ever get stopped speeding again where I will be going !!!!

Me and my father hired Mr. Kuligowski to help me with a ticket I recieved for disregarding a highway sign. He got my evidence prepared and was very confident in our case, which eased my stress. The only negative thing i can say is that the secretary was a little behind on keeping me updated. But the outcome was more than i asked for. On the day of court i was having trouble with directions and he was very helpful and patient in assisting me to get there even though i was flustered. Once i arrived he told me about the judge i had gotten, because he seemed to be familiar with all possible judges, and told me what to expect with his particular behavior. This was so helpful to me. He did a great job of explaining/communicating everything i was thinking to the judge, and my case was dismissed. I am more than happy with the decision we made to hire Mr. Kuligowski. I highly recommend him.

Mr. Kuligowski had may case dismissed in a matter of minutes. I went from a reckless driving ticket to out the front door in less than five minutes. HE has been successful in lowering charges or having them dismissed for everyone I have recommended to him.

I am from New York driving down to Virginia Beach for a little sun and relaxation. Driving through all the towns and municipality the speed zones changes often. I was not as attentive as I should have been and got ticketed and charged with reckless driving. I was doing 72 in a 45 mile zone. This was very upsetting to me because I haven't gotten a ticket on my driving record. I called a lawyer previous to speaking to Mr. Kuligowski. He sounded like the judge himself so I wasn't comfortable. When I called Mr. Kuligowski, his voice and tone was comforting, as if he understood exactly what I was going through. He managed to reduce the charge to improper driving and I was very pleased with that outcome. This experience has made me a more careful driver. So if you are looking for a good lawyer who knows the system in Virginia, retain Mr. Monte E. Kuligowski services.

This review is long overdue- Attorney Monte Kuligowski represented me in absentia back in the fall of 2013; it is now 2015, and I, today, feel guilty and disrespectful for not already giving this man a glowing review for his crucial help in my case. For those of you who are in a testy predicament and are facing a reckless driving charge, please hire this man to represent you in court. As a New Yorker, like all other residents in the Northeastern Seaboard, I never viewed traffic offenses - at least most of them- seriously; however, in the state of Virginia, the law is much more stringent and they will punish you for traffic offenses that are considered relatively minor or trivial in other parts of the nation.
To paint a more holistic picture of Mr. Kuligowski, let me explain to you the specifics of my story:
After driving for over ten hours all the way from New York, I was pulled over in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge -Tunnel. To my surprise - and dismay - I was charged with reckless driving for doing 84 mph in a 55mph. I was not intentionally driving at that speed; as a local resident understandingly mentioned to me after I angrily explained to him the details of my offense, "when the sun is shining and you're drifting by that beautiful water and stunning scenery, you feel like a million bucks and aren't really paying attention to that speedometer." Indeed, that is what happened to me as I nonchalantly drifted through this mesmerizing bridge. Nevertheless, don't let the magnificence of its structure deceive you; it is merciless speed trap that captures thousands of unsuspecting (and actually reckless) drivers yearly. The cops there won't hesitate to pounce and hand you a speeding ticket if you are above the limit.
Prior to this offense, I never committed a single traffic violation - not even a simple parking infraction. Moreover, I was an A+ honor roll student enrolled at a primer university- I was an ordinary citizen with good standing and no prior record. Nevertheless, for a simple, albeit somewhat serious traffic ticket, I was not only being handed a hefty fine, but a summons in court. I would be tried like a criminal, and, if found guilty, I'd be punished with a Class 1 misdemeanor. For the normal law-abiding citizen who has never done anything wrong in their life, that's daunting and worrying. That sort of blemish on your record can have serious consequences. Although its not a felony, that sort of a misdemeanor can function as an ignominious badge of shame that limits future opportunities for enrollment in graduate schools and jobs. Obviously concerned, I did some research and stumbled upon Mr. Kuligowski's name and decided to hire him after much deliberation. Retrospectively, it was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
Although I was initially found guilty by the judge, who was probably subject to the whims of his daily moods, Mr. Kuligowski put forth an unrelenting and concerted effort to get the decision reversed, which he ultimately accomplished. Mr. Kuligowski embodies everything a true professional should be - someone who is not solely concerned with money, but a devoted individual who puts forth his best effort, genuinely cares for his clientele, and has a firm grasp of justice. He takes pride in his work - that's the type of man or woman you want representing you when the going gets tough in the courtroom. God Bless you Mr. Kuligowski - although a traffic offense is minor in scope, it could've had life-altering ramifications that could have influenced the trajectory of my life in some unfavorable way. This review is not just a genuine thank-you note, but a plea to the unsettled individual who is seeking the services of an attorney to represent them to choose you. Rest assured, if you pick Mr. Kuligowski, you will be in the best hands. There is nobody who has more savvy and potential than Mr. Kuligowski. He is a godsend- undoubtedly the best in the region.

I am an out of state resident. I reside in New York, and went to Virginia to road trip with a couple of people. As I was driving down the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, I was pulled over by the officers. I did not realize that I was going fast because I had been driving for a good 8 hour. For someone who has a clean record, this was very upsetting and scary. We explained our situation, but the cops insisted on charging me with wreck less driving, on top of that a courts summon. I didn't even know wreck less driving in Virginia is comparable to a DUI in New York. I was out of state, I was not going to go back to Virginia just to appear on court. So then I did hours and hours of research on a lawyer who could represent me on court, and soon I came across Mr. Kuligowski. After all the research and reading upon forums, I decided to contact Mr. Kuligowski. His assistant and him responded back to me in a very swift and helpful manner. I told him my situation - driving 84mph on a 55mph highway. He was more than willing to help represent me and was very cooperative. He answered every questions I had and was very informative. He had helped reduce my charge from wreck less driving to a traffic infraction. I am very pleased with his service. If you ever need a lawyer, YOU MUST contact Mr. Kuligowski!

I've used Mr. Kuligowski to help me beat a reckless driving (by speed 89/55) charge and I walked out of court with a totally different charge (defective equipment). I'm back six years later for another reckless driving general (improper control/bad brakes) and he was confident the case would be thrown out or greatly reduced. Sadly he remembered me from the 1st case. We was able to play catch up and I was able to straighten out his slow laptop with a few tips. Mr. Kuligowski has an amazing knack when it comes to getting clients out of a bind.
