Excellent Lawyer
Dean was put in charge of my case while he was working with Greg McCulloms Complete Legal Defense Team. From day one I knew I was in good hands! He kept me up to date on everything that was happening and made me feel comfortable while I was going through a tough time in my life. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome of my case! I highly recommend Dean Mureddu!

Miracle worker
Dean is a fantastic attorney! My fiance was in a minor fender bender after a benefit and was intoxicated. Even though he was 3 times the legal limit on the breathalyzer, Dean was able to get the case dismissed. No adsap; no sr-22, no headaches. His knowledge and ability to have gotten this result still astounds me. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family.

simple possession of marijuana
I was charged with simple possession and after seeking advice from several attorneys I have to say Mr. Mureddu gave me the best advise and charges were reduced to Conditional Discharge. What a knowledgeable attorney! No waiting when called him. My trust is with Dean and recommend him highly.

traffic ticket
I came to Dean with a traffic ticket that I thought was unfair. Dean handled my case and ultimately got the charge dismissed. I was very happy with his service and the outcome of my case.

Legal Representation by Dean
Dean defended my son in a case and could not possibly done a better job. The case was dismissed at a Preliminary Hearing. Dean also followed up in the Expungement process to keep my son's record clean. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone charged with a crime.
