The gratefulness that I and my husband have for this attorney and his firm is too great to put into words. Our son committed an unspeakable crime in which could have ended him in jail until 21 or longer if he was charged as an adult. Without going into full detail of the charges, all I can say is that it was truly a devastating and traumatic situation that effected our whole family, tremendously.
First, Groth thoroughly, yet kindly, explained the charges and worst case scenarios in these types of situations, which was, extremely, hard to hear, as mother. However, he took the case with no hesitation explaining, very confidently, that he would make sure worst case scenario did not happen. Less than 24 hours of hiring him, he already talked to prosecutor, charges were dropped to the lowest felony possibly as a minor (not bonded over as an adult), a court date within a week or so, no jail time, and probation upon completion of program. A case that could have drag on for months was done in just a few weeks.
Not taking anything away from the victim or family by any means, I just need to say that during the whole case our family felt very important to Groth and somewhat special, if that is proper to say. This is because of how much care and professionalism was given throughout the case. His words, demeanor, and attitude was confident and soothing from the first moment he said he would take the case, in the court room, and after.
A family member who told us to hire him said, "He is a wizard in the courtroom." She was right. There are some attorneys who have a reputation of being "a bulldog" in court room and winning cases. Gross appears to be so well respected and very much liked by everyone, including prosecutor, probation officers, staff, and more importantly, the judge, he didn't even have to go there. However, through talking to other people, including himself, if he had to go there, he could and would for his client.
Groth, is a very knowledgeable and skilled at what he does, his intelligence, persuasive, and caring as an attorney is instantly seen. I know that it was God who put him in our path to help my son (a very loving and good kid) who made a very bad decision, get a second chance at having a healthy life without being stuck in the system.
Thank you so much with hugs and tears.
