Simple super simple
Easy to work with. Great process. Minimized my time being involved. Entire process was handled with one phone call and email.

Excellent Representation
Excellent service and very friendly staff. Only made contact with staff and touched base one additional time to handle my ticket. Very quick to respond back. Overall I had a great experience and would recommend to anyone.

Easy to do business with
After contacting Ali to explain the citation that I received and agreeing to the terms- I did not have to lift a finger, send an email or make one phone call. Everything was taken care of exactly as was it was explained to me. Wonderful result and I couldn't be more pleased!

Prompt Precise Performance
The staff was quick and understood what documents they needed promptly. They understood the process and gave an estimated time for completion along with a price for services rendered. Once the firm was hired, they kept me up-to-date with each step of the proceedings with emails and phone calls. The staff even provided follow up phone calls if I did not respond via email in a 24 hour period. Justin far exceeded my expectations for the results in my case. Justin and his firm deserve the larger fees they request! I highly recommend their services!

Traffic Citation
After receiving an out-of-state traffic citation in North Carolina, I sent several inquires out to law offices that same night, desperate to have it resolved, and with no experience in these matters. The Olsinski office responded first, and with a reasonable rate. After agreeing to hire them, they handled my case in a speedy, pain free manner, ultimately resulting in a reduction to "improper equipment", the best possible outcome. All communications with the office were courteous and accurate, and a stressful situation was managed into something virtually stress-free. I hope to never require their services again, but if I do, they'll certainly be my first call, and I would heavily recommend them to anyone in a similar position.

Great experience!
The Olsinski Law Firm made it very easy to resolve my traffic violation. I called them the week after my incident, submitted some documents via FAX and didn’t worry about a thing moving forward. Incredibly easy to work with.

Highly Recommended
Olsinski Law Firm (Charlotte Office) got the job done. Justin Olsinski was able to get misinformation corrected immediately and most importantly, managed to get all charges cleared. Maggie Aguirre - Legal Assistant was the perfect interface and her commitment and knowledge was unquestionably stellar. I would definitely recommend Olsinski Law Firm as your legal defense team.

Very Intelligent Attorney
Justin has it together. He is very upfront and honest about potential outcomes and he never one time gave me false hope. He worked with me and the DA to get the best deal possible and used all the positives of my life to show that the path had changed. He has learned to develop relationships with those that can help and uses these to your advantage. He is an excellent attorney and even remembers who you are a year later. I highly recommend him as a top notch attorney to have on retainer for issues that arise.

Great Lawyer
They are great people and amazing at what they do. I had a misdemeanor and they wiped it right off my slate and ended up not even being charged. So my votes are for the olsinki law firm in any situation.

Had a DWLR
Got a DWLR and Justin got it reduced to a failure to notify the DMV of an address change. Very impressed with him. I hope I never need his services again but if I do Justin will be my first phone call.

Awesome Attorney
After my life was ruined by false allegations and Attorneys who did not believe in me I was very fortunate to meet Justin. Not only is he very compassionate with his clients he is a very upfront honest man. He did a great job and got the justice that I deserved. I will be thankful to him for the rest of my life. I would highly recommend his expertise for anyone who needs any legal representation.

Best Defense Attorney in the South
When our lives were turned upside down by a false allegation we turned to Justin. He represented my son on a felony charge of Indecent Liberties On a Minor. He stood by my son the whole way working to prove his innocence, and not take some feeble deal the DA kept throwing out. He did not let him get branded as something he was not. Justin was professional as well as compassionate throughout the entire process. Our case went to jury trial and Justin sunk his teeth in and really stood up for my son, he was not afraid to speak up to the DA. He won a non guilty verdict for my son and gave us back our lives and future. His rate was exceptionally reasonable and his level of skill and expertise worth much more. Thank you Justin.

Recomendation for Mr. Olsinski
We hired Mr. Olsinski for a case related to a felony charge. He was great to work with - knowledgeable about the charges, very good communicator, and able to find a solution that lead to the charges being dropped. It was nice having the peace of mind knowing that Mr. Olsinski was working on our behalf, giving good direction, and willing to go up and above what was needed to be done. I would recomend him to be your next attorney.

AMAZING, ABSOLUTLEY AMAZING
I actually found Mr. Olsinski in the yellowpages...I did not even know where to start or the right questions to ask. He was amazing, I explained my situation and he immediately started talking stragety, I was blown away. He made my hopeless situation seem a little less hopeless. He was very easy to talk to and he knows his stuff....Long story short, my DUI case was dismissed and all charges dropped. I owe him my life....I would highly recommend him to anyone...amazing Lawyer
