Dustin Michael Buttigieg Does NOT Play, He HasThe Most Diligent Professional Work Ethic Out Of ANY Lawyer I Have EVER Delt With!
I was arrested April 24th 2010 And Charged With >>> DUI - Speeding -Eluding/ "Running From the police" and a ton of other charges they tried to Just "throw" in there as "they" do to try and hope for 1 or 2 charges to stick . Being in business myself I deal with the public a lot ! After I went to see DUSTIN at his office in Forsyth Ga.(He now has a Macon Ga. Firm) and talking with Him, I knew he was truly on MY side and not just looking to get a quick Retainer Fee and then "turn Lazy" and try to just get a charge or 2 reduced. NO, He takes it PERSONAL !! He FIGHTS HARD TO GET ALL the charges Dismissed if there is any way possible under the sun. (I truly think it's an insult to DUSTIN if he doesnt get everything dropped) .... He WILL treat you as if you are family I don't care who you are or what back ground you come from. PLEASE believe what I Just Wrote Above. OK NOW To The Even Better Part. He Called Me This Morning JULY 4th 2011 At 8:24am (Yes he was working on the 4th Of July) To Tell Me My Case Had Been Dismissed Completely, ALL Charges Dismissed! Oh, I left out something pretty Important, I never lost my Driver's License through out all of this mess !! PLEASE READ THE NEXT TWO THINGS IM ABOUT TO SAY, THEY ARE VERY VERY IMPORTANT ..... #1 Did You Just Get a DUI, Drug Charge Or Any Other Charge/s? Please Relax And Call DUSTIN MICHAEL BUTTIGIEG Attorney At Law, Set up a free consultation and sit back and let him handle it from there !! #2 You GET What You PAY For !!! We all make Mistakes ... But Let Attorney Dustin Michael Buttigieg (Sharp As A double Edge Razor Blade) Take care Of It For You. THANKS a Million Dustin !! Sorry for writing a book but I want you to know the truth about my case!

Good Young Lawyer
At my first meeting with Dustin, he explained the entire process of my divorce so I understood just what we had to do and when. He made the whole divorce easy. He wrote me letters and called me to let me know what was going on and that he cared about my case. Dustin is good hearted and down to earth.

Fast, Effective Representation
Mr. Buttigieg was sensitive to my unique legal needs and was diligent in fighting for me. He called me personally to update me as to the status of my case and kept me in the loop at all times. I have had a ton of lawyers in my day and would definitely use Dustin again if I found myself in need of legal help.
