The Best
Was facing up to 30yrs in prison when we hired the Ouellette Law Firm. His staff and him fought to the end and I walked out of the courtroom with 2 years probation. Couldn't of been happier with the results. My family and I are grateful and would recommend Bill to anyone!

Hands down the best lawyer
A great lawyer to have on your side. Got my injunction dismissed and got my ex to finally followed the court order to have visitation with my daughter. He is a great listener He used all of the ranting I did in his office in my hearing to see my daughter. I have great faith in Mr Bill Ouellette ability to get the job done. Thank you.

Amazing Attorney
Bill was awesome from beginning to end. He has a very professional approach and is confident in his work. Going through a divorce can be pretty stressful especially when children are involved but he helped alleviate my concerns and reassured me time and time again that it will all work out and that is exactly what happened when we finalized. I would definitely recommend him to anyone going through a similar circumstance. He gets the job done!.

Highly recommend, great staff and reasonable price....
Mr. Ouellette handled a Domestic Violence and trespassing charge for me. He got the domestic violence charge dropped and just a fine for the trespassing charge. I was very pleased with the outcome. Mr. Ouellette was very professional and was available anytime I needed to speak with him. I would defiantly recommend his services to anyone seeking a lawyer. Mr. Ouellette and his great staff always treated my case as top priority, which I appreciated.

I hired Mr.William Ouellette because I had a good feeling about him when we had the consult,he assured me that he would get my fiance a deal and the case would not make it to trial. Being somewhat of a beginner hiring attorneys I didnt review the contract before signing and he didnt bother telling me that In the event of trial he would charge me $2000 a day Up Front, I was unaware of that. I paid Mr.Ouellette $4000 to represent my fiance in a criminal case which was a burglary charge, he only offered my fiance the same and only deal that the state offered him according to his point sheet forcing us to trial, I feel he did not fight for my fiance the way he promised he would.He also made comments in a joking manner as to he had nothing to worry about because he would walk out the same door he walked into,referring to himself. He took his name off my fiances case in court in front of the judge (very unprofessional)without warning ,no letter stating that he would no longer represent him or anything. He wanted the money for trial up front is the reason he took his name off the case yet my fiance had not even picked his jury yet.As of now,we are hiring another attorney,4000 down the train.Honestly all he did was show up in court. If i could give 0 star rating i would.
