Case dismissed!
I got arrested back in June driving through Mississippi for my moms wedding ceremony. The officers pulled me over for a missing headlight but were very unprofessional and falsely charged me with a DUI, driving inoperable vehicle and a slew of other charges. Don Lasarus got everything dismissed, the DUI, the marijuana charges and all.. No fines, no court cost, & no harsh sentences or penalties. I would highly recommend Mr. Lazarus to anyone having trouble with this very flawed justice system in the state of Mississippi.
