Out of state traffic ticket
I was so glad I used Attorney Chris Glinski for my out of state traffic matter. He was thorough and diligent in every step of the way, and all matters of the case. He was great at communicating feedback and kept me posted at all times. As an IL driver I wasn't aware of traffic citations and processes over the border, but Chris handled it so well, and was able to deliver as promised. I couldn't be more happier with the outcome of my case!

Professional, upfront and honest
I had the opportunity to work with Chris, related to a traffic violation that I had received. Right from our initial discussions, he was straight forward, upfront and honest in explaining the process, the cost and what he could do to resolve the issue. Overall great experience and satisfied with my service and results.

Helpful and efficient, great find!
I am from Illinois and recived a ticket in Kenosha. I looked on line (scary thought) to find an attorney to help me understand and deal with the Wisconsin courts. Christopher answered my call promptly and he did everything he told me he would do and kept me in the loop. He helped me out with negotiating my ticket with a good or best possible situation. I recommend him to anyone.

Excellent Attorney!
I highly recommend Atty Glinski to anyone needing legal representation. He responded immediately, fully explained the process (traffic violation) along with possible outcomes. Communicated as needed and delivered an optimum result for a fair fee. Definitely would hire him again,

Review of Christopher Glinski
Christopher Glinski was very professional, prompt and polite! After hearing about my case, he gave me two likely outcomes for a citation I received, both of which I was happy with. He was able to deliver one of the two outcomes he previously mentioned. I gave him a very short notice and he able to assist me on a time sensitive situation. I would definitely refer people to Christopher as he helped me tremendously. Thank you!

Excellent
I recently got a speeding ticket and was given 6 points on my license, along with a very pricey citation. Christopher was able negotiate a deduction of all my points, change from a speeding to a parking citation, and a great decrease on my citation. He communicated consistently throughout the process and made sure I was informed at all times.

Reliable and Honest
I googled Mr Glinski after my 19 year old son, received a speeding ticket driving home from Marquette. (He panicked, paid it immediately, thinking it would disappear, wrong!) Mr Glinski was able to get the ticket reduced, just as he said may happen.. Thank u!

Completely satisfied
I work in Racine but live in IL - Racine county Sheriff saw my plates and thought my 10MPH over could be streached to a 6 point 20MPH ticket and I wouldn't contest it. He was wrong. Hired Chris after searching the Internet and making some calls. Chris was the first to call back. He walked me through the process and I paid him ( very reasonable fee by the way). Little while later I get an email saying my six point ticket is now is zero point parking violation. Could not be happier with the results. Would certainly recommend Chris to friends and family or anyone else for that matter.

Direct & Effective - Excellent Attorney
I retained Chris after receiving a moving violation in Racine County. I was not speeding and felt the circumstances were unfair given traffic conditions. Chris gave me a candid assessment of the case and worked to resolve the issue ... thankfully, to my benefit.

Traffic Violation Dismissed!
I hired Christopher to represent me for a traffic violation. I was hoping to get the 3 point violation reduced. But he was able to get the matter dismissed - zero points and no fine! Extremely pleased to say the least. I highly recommend him.

Can't get easier...
Chris was able to negotiate my daughters speeding ticket to a non moving parking ticket. This saved me extra auto insurance cost, not to mention saved me from having to take off work for the court date. Thanks Chris!

Represented for a traffic violation --definately recommend
I received a speeding ticket in Racine County and was not going to be able to attend the court hearing. I was concerned about the points assessed and how the ticket would impact my insurance. I received solicitation letters from attorneys who obviously get records of violations. Instead of responding to those, I did some research and looked at reviews here. That is how I found Atty Glinski. I reached out in an email and he responded very quickly with information I needed to know (cost to represent, how it would go etc). This helped me make decision. He was really easy to get in touch with. I was working out of state that week and on a different time zone and he gave me times and his cell phone to reach him on. He explained everything in a simple consult phone call. His fee is very reasonable and I was able to take care of everything in that phone call. I did not have to take off any time from work to go to court (where you can sit for hours). Chris represented me and got back to me the same day of court date with the revised disposition. The citation was reduced. I would recommend Atty Glinski and would hire him again (but I hope I don't get any more tickets!)

Very professional and responsive
I first called Chris in the late afternoon, after 5, and was amazed that he picked up the phone. He gave me great advice, and took charge of my case immediately. He explained everything clearly, and did everything he said he would do. I got a great result. I would highly recommend him.
