Debbie was amazing! Not only was she thorough and supportive she also worked with me diligently throughout the case. The outcome was more than what I could have asked for. I would highly recommend her services to any one facing criminal charges. Debbie gets the job done!

Great lawyer
My name is Antoine, Debbie represented me on 2 charges. I thought I was is the biggest trouble. She got one of them dropped and I and a fair deal on the other one. She will definitely answer all of your questions, I can see it through. She is a surefire lawyer, when she aims for something she gets her Mark. I would hire her again, and definitely would suggest her to my friends and family.

Most affordable, best results!
I hired Ms Schlussel to represent me on 2 drunk driving cases. She was able to get one case dismissed, and got reduced charges on the other. She worked very well with me on informing of the proactive steps I should take, and worked well with all others involved (prosecution, probation, judge, etc), in order to get the best results. The process does take time, but she is very thorough and wants to ensure the best possible outcome for her clients. She beat all other lawyers fees as well. By going with Debbie, I got the most affordable representation, and a result that was far better (honestly that I thought was impossible) than I could have ever hoped for. Debbie will fight for you, and as long as you do your part, you will not regret hiring her.

We literally fired his 1st attorney and got with Ms Deborah Schlussel. Best decision ever.

Life saver!!!
In September of 2023 I made a mistake that could’ve potentially resulted in some serious prison time. I was charged with 2 felonies that were each punishable by up to 20 years in prison. After being released from jail on bond, I had to act quickly because I knew a public defender wouldn’t be adequate for the situation I was in. After talking to multiple lawyers and hearing about how difficult the case would be, I felt helpless. Debbie was one of the many lawyers I contacted and left a message. Most didn’t respond. She called me back that evening and was the first lawyer I spoke to that eased my mind and spoke to me like everything was going to be okay. She listened to my perspective on the matter diligently and assured me that she would take care of me. I had never been in any trouble before so I was very concerned about my future and the legal process in general. I just kept thinking that I would have to do time in prison and I didn’t how to handle that. Debbie assured me that I would be okay countless times. In hindsight, I wish I would’ve just listened to her from the start as it would’ve saved me a lot of panic. She was right. She never misled me or told me things that were untrue. She either immediately responded to any questions I had, or called me back as soon as she was free and talked to me. A lesser lawyer would’ve probably ignored me or told me to stop contacting them so much. She is very accessible and always willing to have a conversation about your case, no matter how redundant the questions are. She even had conversations with my mother to ease her concern multiple times, which she did not have to do. She drove well over an hour to my multiple court appearances. She fought for me hard in the courtroom and we eventually settled for a very favorable plea deal that resulted in me receiving 12 months of unsupervised probation. That’s unheard of in my situation. She worked tirelessly on my case and I am forever grateful for her work as it likely saved my future. She is very reasonably priced as well. I would hire her again and again, although I will not be getting into any kind of legal trouble again. If you’re in a bind, I cannot recommend her enough. Debbie is simply the best!

Debbie is not only a great lawer. She's also amazing person!
I used Debbie on two occasions,she was always available to answer my questions and concerns even after both of my cases were settled! She put me at ease throughout the legal process. She achieved the best results possible in both cases. I highly recommend Debbie!

I am in awe of Debbie. She has to be the most knowledgeable and professional lawyer around. Her attention to detail goes beyond being a good lawyer. Debbie is an exceptional lawyer. Words don't describe her wonderful abilities. I was so fortunate to have Debbie represent me. You will too if you fortunate to engage her services.

A wonderful attorney running her own practice.
I recently got into some trouble. Givin the charges I was looking at jail time. I have a wife and daughter of 9 years old. If Sent to jail I was going to loose my house that I own, my cars , my wife and child. We just couldn't afford to make it without me working. I reached out and Deborah K. Schlussel responded within 3 minutes. Lightning fast. She presented herself as a strong aggressive Jewish attorney and would beat any other attorneys price. I was charged with the worst class of drugs you can have. 5 misdemeanors. When she told me the cost and said I could go research her online to see she was active and had 30 years experience I hired her right away. I took about 5 minutes to look her up online. No one was going to beat her price. I didn't know at the time she ran her own practice by herself. I'm used to big law firms and playing phone tag and getting the front desk. I can't tell you how big of a deal this is . She responds promptly to calls and texts. Even if she is in court. She will say I'll get back to you as soon as I get out of court. Any questions anytime . When your this worried or have questions it really makes a world of difference. She was very honest and didn't make fake promises. She recommended I do a few different things ahead of time to improve my chances. I did the things she told me to . She can't do her job if you don't hold up your end . Same goes for honesty. She can't do her job if your not truthful. She made the experience personal and with a caring attitude. Again working for herself I'll never go to anyone else if anything ever happens. ( not going to blow my second chance). She's a wonderful lady and professional. She knew the judges and was able to Give me an idea of what I was looking at. I feel like I had someone looking out for me. I am still in shock , she got me probation and on top of it they are going to expunge my record if I do what I am supposed to do. I cried when. I received the offer. A second chance at life. I say this from my heart. Highly recommended. She handles a wide range of cases . I'll be honest I was impressed even if I didn't get the offer. She runs her own business , treats you like a human being and is honest.
