I went to a free consultation and unfortunately she was not kind at all. I was looking to know my options after being charged with a DWI and after telling me that I had "no hope" at a dismissal, rather than saying that it's not the end of the world or that at least no one got hurt as a result, she told me "you should be thankful you didn't stick a gun in someone's face and get charged with armed robbery." Really? Me thinking I'm okay to drive and being mistaken is nowhere near the same as intentionally committing armed robbery. Horrible analogy and made me wonder why she ever thought to compare my charge to a dangerous felony? She also told me that a DWI charge is a "chickenshit" charge and that she would charge me $1500.00 for me to plea guilty but never asked me to describe anything about myself nor about the night of the arrest to see what mitigating factors were involved. It was obvious she wasn't interested in taking my case and just wanted me out.
