Very thorough & professional
I cannot express enough gratitude for Alex & his representation of my case. From the very beginning he was very thorough, knowledgeable & professional. Not only did he do what you expect from a lawyer but he went above & beyond for me. He seemingly kept me out of prison & got me the deal we were hoping for. This was my first true case, I was nervous & didn’t know what to expect. Alex offered me the insight I needed and reassured me everything would work itself out. Thanks to Alex, I’ve got my freedom, my sobriety & a second chance on the outside. Forever grateful, Michael Shepard

Need assistance call Mr. Gilewicz. Look no futher.
I was in an incident that was mainly due to miscommunication. I was given a severe ticket that needed an attorney. My case resulted positively in my favor because of Mr. Gilewicz. He took lots of time and care to resolve the issue and keep me sane during the process. If you need help do not hesitate to call Mr. Gilewicz.I did am I glad I did!

Gave me back my life!!
Alexander was superb! My probation officer had not even mentioned my eligibility for Early Parole for a five year sentence. Alexander got all of the facts, court documents, etc. and quickly figured out that I had actually been eligible for Early Release for the past 3 months. Within 10 days he gave me the best news I have ever had: "You are a free man!!" If you have any criminal issues, I would highly recommend this firm and this lawyer. They are top notch, efficient, very knowledgeable, and yes, they are even very friendly.

Amazing communication.
I can never say how thankful I am for Alex and how much he helped my case and livelihood. A friend referred me to Mesic Law saying they were the best in town and I can now personally attest to that claim. Alex was in constant communication with me throughout my case and explained everything clearly and in great detail. He handled my case perfectly. We were able to come to an amazing resolution with the prosecution which was a huge weight off my shoulders. I highly recommend anyone needing representation to contact Alex Mesic law

I have memory issues and left Walmart one day without paying unintentionally. I am a 32 year Navy combat disabled veteran suffering from PTSD and anxiety disorders. Mr Gilewicz defended my honor!

Personable, efficient, effective, great to work with
Mr. Gilewicz was extremely helpful with my case. He listened, asked questions and made me feel comfortable knowing he was representing me. He was always prepared and answered questions anytime I asked and followed up to make sure I was satisfied. I can’t thank him enough for taking care of me and would recommend him to anyone needing an attorney.
