I have known Maggie Jo for several years and just recently retained her services. She was very diligent and efficient. She handle matters timely and was very thorough. I would recommend her to anyone.

I was charged with a couple drug-related felonies, the evidence for which was so conclusive that there was no possibility of a trial — and thus no possibility of using a trial as a negotiating tactic.
Despite this, and the seriousness of the charges, Maggie persevered in the plea negotiations with the state attorney throughout a roller-coaster few months in which they were by turns uncooperative, outright uncommunicative, and seemingly inflexible.
When negotiations with the ASA reached a still-unsatisfactory conclusion, she pursued further negotiations with the division chief to ensure the many mitigating circumstances in my case were fully taken into account.
In the end, she managed to reach a compromise with the division chief which meant only probation (no incarceration) for an offense which typically receives a three-year prison sentence. Although this was partly due to the mitigating circumstances mentioned, I believe that it never would have been possible without Maggie's persistence.
I'm grateful that she was my attorney in this matter, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

This cop was trying to accuse me of some things that made me look really foolish when I felt my life was in danger. After a good friend of mine told me about Maggie Jo I said " I hope this isn't one of those friends that don't know what they are doing " an believe it or not she is professional on all levels as well as an awesome friend. She knew her material and the issue at hand better than some of us know how to tie our show. So hats off to Maggie Jo. Again I swear I think she has super powers. Everything is now back to normal. If you don't choose Maggie Jo as your lawyer then you are crazy.
THANKS MAGGIE JO
