DUI case
She personally cared and took interest in my case. She was completely on my side and gave me the best advice possible. Her actions, on my behalf, literally changed the course of my following days in the best way possible. She helped me and more so my family. My DUI was reduced to a reckless and I am forever indebted to Vicki and Mr. Snells law firm! I am so greatful. She truly cares for her clients and that makes all the difference.
