Justin Schiks is by far the best lawyer I have ever worked with. He's very genuine, caring, and supportive. He took the time to listen to my story, and didn't judge me for the past mistakes I had made. I was facing a felony 5th degree possession charge, and thought my life was over. After meeting up with Justin and figuring out the appropriate actions to take in this case, I felt a million times better and we hadn't even been to the first court date yet. He takes pride in what he does, and puts his clients best interest first. Walking into the court room I was very nervous, but seeing Justin's smiling face and constant fight to do what was in my best interest made this whole process a lot less stressful on me. He did everything in his power to make sure I understood the worst possible outcome and the best possible outcome. He fought court date after court date to get the felony reduced to a misdemeanor. Which he ended up being successful in doing so. He encouraged me time after time to continue doing the next right thing, regardless of the outcome. Justin made a huge impact on my life, and gave me the second chance I needed to be successful in staying sober and living a "normal" life. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is facing criminal charges, because he's not just in it for the money. He truly wants to make a difference in people's lives. I will be recommending him to anyone and everyone I know. Give Justin the chance to make a difference in your life and I promise you will not regret it!!!!

Finding Justin was a Godsend! My 16 year old son got messed up with the wrong kids at school and found himself in legal troubles that could have ruined his adulthood. I was a single mom with not a lot of savings. Yet I knew a public defender was not going to be the best option for helping secure the future of my young son.
I knew I needed an attorney who would be compassionate, smart and very tough! I went on line and came across Justin's advertisement. I read his reviews and thought WOW! This has to be too Good to be true. I looked into several other options but couldn't get some of the great things people had said about Justin being compassionate, trustworthy, true to his word and his genuine character.
I called Justin and after telling him my story he had me in tears on what he was willing to do to help my son. I knew he was the Laywer my son needed if he wanted to have a chance at a clean future!
Justin met with myself and my son and my son said to me. I like him. He's not fake. So we hired Justin to defend my son.
Justin advised us on being proactive on steps that would be great for helping my son get back to the kind hearted young man that he once was, as well as be a positive outlook for the judge when we entered court.
Everything Justin advised us on has been working and watching Justin in the courtroom has shown us just how smart he is. Justin displays this calm , very professional demeanor and he can read people very well. He uses this to his advantage when working a plea and never gets shaken!
Our process has taken a year with several court appearances. Justin delivered everything he set out to and because of him and what he has taught my son on how he need to help himself as well. My son will have a clean record going into adulthood!
Our prayers were answered when we met Justin! And yours will be too!!
Thank you Justin! We will always be greatful for everything you have done for us!
Tina and Red R.

My sons' life was turned upside down by a very unfortunate accident he was involved in where two individuals were seriously injured. He was looking at a 5-10 year prison term. Justin was successful in getting my son three months in the county workhouse. Justin is extremely knowledgeable and honest. He is highly respected in the community and would highly recommend him. He saved my sons' life and I am forever grateful.
