License problems
Nils was an excellent lawyer, very professional and very kind. He saved my daughter and got her license back. He worked fast and negotiated excellent and guided us in the right direction. I highly recommend Nils.

Made things easy, reduced stress
I am so grateful I was able to work with Nils on my case. Having no history with the law or justice system, I had no idea what I was in for. He made sure I was prepared and treated me like a human being an not like just another client. He made the whole process so much easier for me and really went above and beyond. Very happy with how things turned out in my case and worth every penny.

Great Lawyer
My daughter received a traffic violation in Madison where she attends university. We live in Illinois so needless to say it could of been a fairly difficult ordeal having to go back and forth to assist her. I called Nils and he handled everything! Was honest, straight forward, communicated wonderfully, and was able to get her ticket taken care of. Hopefully she will not get any more citations but if she does Nils is our guy!

Very Satisfied
Nils had his work cut out for him with my very involved OWI cases. With his help, I survived a very serious situation with the best possible outcome, which included minimal jail time. During this very difficult time in my life, I appreciated not only his knowledge and candor, I also was surprised at how kind and compassionate an attorney could be! Despite the challenges and sometimes surprised during my journey, his treatment of me helped me maintain hope and dignity. He is a man of great character.

Great lawyer. Outcome was just as desired
Mr. Wyosnick was able to successfully appeal my speeding ticket on the first appearance.. His communication was very clear, honest and to the point (which I strongly appreciated). I strongly recommend him and his services!

Great Service!
Nils was able to take care of a not-so-minor speeding ticket for me and got it reduced to a defective speedometer so that my insurance would not go up. Highly recommended!

Very professional, extremely knowledgeable, outstanding representation
After consulting with Nils on my slightly more than minor traffic offence, I decided to hire him as my representative for my case. Throughout the consult he was very knowledgeable and realistic on the predicted outcome of my situation. He answered all of my questions and was very personable throughout the whole case. I always had my email's and calls returned very quickly with concise and easy to understand conversation. I very happy with the outcome of my case and believe Nils to be a great asset when dealing with legal matters such as mine.

I Couldn't be More Pleased with the Results
Nils did an excellent job of positioning me for a favorable outcome with my DUI charges! Somehow I got through this difficult and challenging time without my license being revoked, and I have Nils and David Mennie to thank for that. I was concerned that Nils' move to Madison might jeopardize my case, however the opposite was true. Nils teed me up with David Mennie to work out my plea, and a year and a couple months later my driving privileges have remained intact.

Nils has now represented both my mother & I for both serious and less serious traffic citations. We have been very pleased with his professionalism, responsiveness as well as the outcomes negotiated. To the extent either my mother or I need representation in the future, neither of us would hesitate to use Nils again. It is safe to say, as I recommended Nils to my own mother, I would recommend him to friends & family as well.

Worked through challenges
Attorney Wyosnick Is presenting my daughter in criminal court. My daughter is 17 years old. Mr. Wyosnick has handled well the challenges of dealing with two clients: A mother who is passionate about her daughter, and a teenaged girl who is passionate about her dislike of the legal system and is just now coming to meaningful realization, maturity, and, ultimately, accountability for her actions. I believe he should be entitled to double the fees due to these challenges, but he has recognized our financial restraints and continues to valiantly serve us both. He has definitely humanized this process and is empowering my daughter to make the best legal decisions that will carry the least amount of negative impact on her future. I will gladly update this review when our case is complete, but I have faith that he has what it takes to ensure success.

Throughout the entire ordeal Mr. Wyosnick was excellent. His experience and knowledge of the law was outstanding. He was perceptive and had great attention to details. He spelled everything out including our chances realistically. Hard work paid off as all charges were dropped. I am so very grateful and highly recommend him. He is passionate about his work and it shows!

Citation after accident dismissed
Nils was the first attorney I called and after speaking with him about my situation (I had gotten a speeding ticket then an accident the next week) and my fear for losing my license, he assured me that he would be in court with me. Nils confirmed our meeting time and met me at the court house. He was polite and respectful and answered any questions I had. The charges were dismissed and I was able to walk out very relieved. Would definitely recommend Nils.

DUI Case
I worked with Nils on a DUI case. From the moment I met with him he was supportive and attentive. He answered all of my questions and was quick to respond when I emailed or called. This was a very emotional and stressful time for me and Nils listened and was always very honest with the outcome. I trusted Nils and he got the best possible outcome for my case. He worked around my schedule for court appearances and meetings.

Exceptional Representation & Service
Nils was a truly exceptional advocate on my behalf. He exhibited patience, clarity, responsiveness, and support related to all of my case issues. Importantly, I believe he worked relentlessly to resolve the case in the most appropriate and favorable manner possible. For anyone who may need representation in traffic-related cases, I would strongly recommend Nils and the whole team at the Davis Law Group. Their professionalism, depth of knowledge of the law, relationships throughout the legal system, and understanding of an individual's concerns far surpassed any expectation I may have had. Thank you to all.

Very complex case rezolved
When I was in one of the lowests moments of my life Nils was my help. I hired him with a very complex case. Because I am just a legal resident and not yet a citizen I was looking to loose not just a simple drive license. I was one step away from deportation. Nils was able to see me beyond the police report and to understand that I was not guilty. He has explain my case to State Attorney office. I was not further persecuted and the case was dismissed. He has work hard to obtain this. Even when he was off from his office because of the birh of his daughter he has made some time to call me. Also I recived the good result right on Christmas day. Don't think he is looking just for your money, he actually care about your case. I tried to offer him more and he has refused. Is true that I paid a part in advance but I knew from day one what will be the total cost. When you end up in court you need someone like Nils that is working to have the job done not an attorney that is keep sending you a monthly bill. The court system is moving slow so you my think than he has no more interest in your case however he actually have you in his mind. For all this reasons I highly recommend to hire Nils Wyosnik as your lawyer. Thank you again Nils for all your help.

Traffic Citation Dismissed
I received a ticket in a minor accident. Nils listened to me and quickly evaluated my situation on the phone and agreed to represent my case. Its first time I have ever been to a court and am worried a lot about the outcome. Nils helped me calm down and worked with the prosecutor. To my surprise the case was dismissed under two minutes. I really am glad that I have approached Nils to take care of my case and would recommend to any one who has a traffic citation and need help.

Speeding in a construction zone with a CDL
I had two tickets, speeding in a construction zone and I needed to prove proof of insurance. Being a CDL holder these offenses could have costed me my job. Meeting Nils he didn't sugar coat anything and laid out all possible outcomes so I was prepared for anything. Thanks to Nils he was able to get both dismissed. I highly recommend him.

Excellent outcome from a bad situation
Nils provided excellent representation for me and my case, I was charged with Leaving a Scene of an Accident in addition to other tickets related to my incident. Nils and his office always returned my calls and keep me informed while he worked on my case. He was able to work on a plea deal, in which I pleaded guilty to Failure to Reduce Speed and have 4 months of Court Supervision, in exchange for all other charges to be dropped. This was the best possible outcome I could have asked for, given the bad situation I put myself in. I would recommend Nils to anyone that needs a Lawyer to represent them. Thanks Nils for everything!
