I am very concerned about the increasing aggression for warrantless searches against citizens shown by law enforcement that I see in my practice.   It appears that many of them do not even care about the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution, and pretend that front doors to homes do not mean anything.  They even make traffic stops for no other purpose but to search "suspicious" vehicles. 

 

We defense attorneys need to be zealous about defending the Fourth Amendment rights that belong to ALL of us-- they are a precious heritage from our Founding Fathers!

Speeding citation
Stuck with me throughout the entire process and guided me on how to properly handle the situation would highly recommend for anyone with a speeding ticket or citation in Polk county. He definitely helped reassure me throughout the process, since it was my first time appearing in front of a judge.

Amazing Lawer
Mr Averbuck did an amazing job with my case. This was my first time dealing with anything of the sort, and he quite literally save my life. I was looking at 30 years facing the system alone. He worked with me financially, so I wasn't drowning trying to pay. He stayed on top of my case throughout, challenging the state on every turn. I would recommend Mr. Averbuck to anyone for any of your legal advisory needs.

Best lawyer in town
Mr. Averbuck did exactly what he said he would do. He was dedicated on point, and very professional. He took me out of one of the most difficult situations are for my entire life, and completely flipped it around to where I no longer have to worry about anything. His administrative assistant, Joanne was easy to work with very professional and efficient. I highly recommend his services.

Great lawyer!!
After consulting with a multiple lawyers, I came across Mr. Averbuck. He was direct and clear when we discussed the situation at hand, while still maintaining a friendly demeanor. It didn't take long to make my decision to hire him. I am extremely happy I did!!!!! If he states he is going to do something, he will follow through. I believe he actually cares about his clients. Don't let his friendliness fool you, he's proficient and skilled! The communication with Ms. Joeanne was excellent and any questions or concerns we're dealt with in a timely manner. I much appreciated having him on my side and I wouldn't hesitate for a second hiring him again if need be! Thank you again for all your help.

Dismissed!
25 Over on the Parkway. Attorney Philip Averbuck apparently waved his magic wand, case dismissed. I don't know how he did it and I don't want to know, just want to say thank you to Mr. Averbuck and his staff for everything.

Excellent Lawyer
Philip Averbuck was my lawyer for criminal charges that consisted of a felony and several misdemeanors. He was very thorough when he discussed the case with me and wrote down the details from my perspective and carefully read the police report. What impressed me was how Mr. Averbuck looked at my case from all angles, was able to find out what actually happened, and provided evidence for this to the judge. Mr. Averbuck is very articulate and presented himself well in court. I highly recommend Mr. Averbuck to anyone with criminal charges. Not only is Mr. Averbuck an outstanding lawyer, but his office staff is very helpful and keeps his clients informed of their case proceedings.

Fantastic
I contacted their office as I was in need of legal help.... Best decision I ever made!!!! He is knowledgeable and patient... He explained everything to me and answered my hundreds of questions... He made my fear and panic go away and instilled a trust and calm that was wonderful. I know that I wasn't in this alone and he followed thru with everything just as he explained... He got me the best possible outcome and was there for me every step of the way... His assistant is warm professional and caring... She is a great asset for his office. If you need a knowledgeable experienced attorney... He is the BEST

Mr. Averbuck defended me in two criminal cases. He was able to get me into the Misdemeanor diversion program, which I completed and the prosecutor dropped charges. I appreciate him and his legal assistant very much.

Philip Averbuck is a 5 star all the way, he was genuinely interested in both cases I had with him, he also let me make payments which at the time was critical, definitely would recommend with criminal law.

Simply the best.
After consulting with numerous attorneys I called Mr. Averbuck's office and had a consult with him and there was no need look any further. Yes, Mr. Averbuck was a bit more money than other attorneys in the area but you really do get what you pay for and we hired him. This is what I can say my husband who violated his probation received less punishment with Mr. Averbucks representation and the other guy arrested with no criminal record who was arrested with my husband is still waiting for resolution.

Great defense lawyer
I highly recommend Mr. Averbuck. Very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Once I went in for my consultation he put my mind at ease in that stressful time. I explained my case and he clearly told me what he could do for me and I hired him. A little over a month later my case was dismissed. Awesome lawyer and Awesome assistant always kept me updated and informed until it was over.
