Works For You
I had a DUI 2nd offense, violation of implied consent, and speeding charge. On top of this I was trying to move. Daniel got my case pushed back several months so I could settle in my new home and then eventually had it dropped down to just a 1st Offense and speeding. He really puts the effort in!
