I am so thankful that God sent me this man. This was my first time being in trouble and this man walked with me hand and hand all the way. There was never a time that he was not available to talk to me and answer questions even if it was past after hours. He drove all the way down from his family just to be by my side when I had to face the prosecution in testifying. I was facing a lot of time in prison but with Mr Lascola's counsel I only served four months at a minimum security camp and I have three years of supervised release. I actually only served 2 months and 2 days at the security camp and the rest and the halfway house. I am now back to my old job that I never lost and my life is getting back on track. I was in danger of being taken away from my child for a long time, but I am so thankful to say that good lawyers that will fight for you still exist and Mr Lascola is the definition of what a good lawyer is.

I hired Martin to take over my DUI case back in January based on the reviews and all I can say is that all the reviews are right! I was in deep deep trouble but Martin managed to got me out it! Martin has very professional and has so much experience, he understand my situation and very knowledgeable during trial. He handled my case very very well! I recommend him to everyone who needs help. He is very confident in court and during trial. His like the Michael Jordan when if comes to DUI and traffic case. Martin I can't thank you enough!

Attorney Martin LaScola was excellent! He was very helpful when getting me through two cases smoothly and efficiently. LaScola was always on time and made every court date. He also helped me went filling a motion quickly when truly needed so that I could keep my license and avoid suspension. One thing that Attorney Lascola helped me with most was getting my case closed, I need my case closed for military enlistment and he was really helpful in making that a possibility. He's very down to earth and professional. I would certainly recommend him to my friends and family.

When I got my first and only speeding ticket (26-34) I and my husband were devastated - in case if anything went wrong, I would have risked my citizenship and potentially my future career. We have made a research and picked a few lawyers in Illinois with good reviews. After we spoke on the phone with most of them, I realized that I wanted to proceed with Martin. Even on the phone I felt that he cared more than anyone else - he responded to all of my questions (and I had a few), explained what risks I am dealing with, what is the potential outcome of my case, and also he was the only one to offer a student discount to me.
The case went smooth, we came to court twice, the case was resolved during the second time in less than 10 minutes. As an outcome: I have no criminal record, my insurance cost is not raised; I had to go to the driving school and at the end the Clerk terminated the sentence earlier. In addition, I did not even have to go to court again to deliver my certificate - I simply mailed it to Martin and he deliver it to court himself.
Needless to say, I cannot be more happier working with such a professional (and an extremely nice person) as Martin. I would recommend him and his law firm to anyone.

Martin got my case dismissed completely! Caught in a speed trap going 30 mph over the limit (where everyone goes this speed), classified as misdemeanor, with no previous record. Martin was comforting from the first phone call. I knew he had the experience and knowledge I needed, as both an attorney and former prosecutor, Martin was on point. Got back to me with in 24 hrs of contacting him, answered all my questions, gave me peace of mind, and charged me half what the other lawyers wanted. Other lawyers wanted to let the misdemeanor charge stand, Martin knew he could get the charge dropped to at least a petty and keep the misdemeanor off my record. He did me one better and worked with the prosecutor to get my case completely dismissed.
Martin knows his stuff, highly highly recommended!

Martin was there for me and truly believed me after watching the DUI arrest video, proved that the arresting officer did not have enough evidence to make my life a living hell and major unconvincing of my entire life. If you decide to drink in the burbs just get a hotel, because of this inconvenience of being pulled over and rightfully not convicted cost me almost $10,000. It if you do find yourself in this sort of a predicament call Martin. I have experience in this arena and Martin is the best. Trust me...and you really should..worth the price of addmission my friend.

I'm a class A holder who did something extremely stupid in my personal vehicle. Let's just say I drove really fast ,damn near twice the highway speed. I know, I know. With that said my previous driving+criminal record wasn't the worst, I wasn't expecting a miracle but the ending result was pretty close. From the outset Mr. LaScola explained strategy, and expectations. He got an aggravated speeding down to a petty speeding. He did a very good job of keeping in touch with me and I can say was well worth the money. You have to pay professional money for professional work. If your a 'professional driver', this man is the professional you need!

Martin was helpful and kind the whole month up until my trial. Very responsive with the text I sent him and professional. My offense was a Class B Misdemeanor and he was able to bring it down to a petty offense with 4 months of court supervision and my insurance was not effected! Martin premeditated his strategy and delivered everything a GREAT lawyer should. He will do everything in his power to make sure his clients are left in the best circumstance. I am a actual client and have refereed him to two other friends of mine. Yes, he is a good choice search no further.

I have no idea where to even to start. I had previously been working with another lawyer and all he did was sat on my case and never did nothing. He didint even show up half the time. I was lost and worried about my driving privileges being revoked for as long as 5 years since this was my second offense in a matter of 2years. Mr. Lascola reviewed my case and discuss our best options. He immediately recind the summary suspension and got me to drive temporarily until the case closed. It was pretty cool how he made the state attorney look like he had no idea what he was doing. I got no jail time and is able to drive again.
His price is firm and very reasonable. He worked with me on payments and was always so attentive. He is knowledgeable and actually cares for his clients. Thank you sir.

Martin helped me with my DUI case and was very successful at it ! If you or someone you know needs a lawyer, Martin is the man to go to. DUI's can be stressful and terrifying but Martin handled everything great! Truly is the best lawyer around!
He also removed my suspension I had with total ease and the communication was fantastic! We always stayed in touch. Would not think twice on hiring Martin. I am a true satisfied client with no regrets at ALL in hiring him as my attorney.
