This attorney was very quick and answering my question and returning my phone call. I think if I need to seek counsel in the near future I will definitely contact him for representation for my son. Thanks so very much for your advise.

Very appreciative of Mr Himmelberg for getting my case dismissed!
I was arrested on a bench warrant after a traffic stop fairly late in the evening. My wife called my brother, and he referred us to Mr. Himmelberg. Mr. Himmelberg was at the courthouse at 8 in the morning to talk to the judge who had signed the bench warrant - it turned out it was a case of mistaken identity, and Mr. Himmelberg was able to get me out of jail that morning! I am very thankful to him for helping me end a rather terrible experience as quickly as possible. He has my highest recommendation
