I contacted Mr. Serkland, he was able to answer all my questions immediately. He was understanding and compassionate. He was completely supportive, he always answered his calls, or would contact me back in a very timely manner.
He was able to take my cases days before my court date and was able to dismiss not one, but both of my citations.
Mr. Serkland is confiendent in the courtroom and his experience shows.
If you ever need a traffic attorney I would highly encourage you to contact him.

This is a little late review but we wanted everyone to know that Paul got our case dismissed. We got into an car accident and which was our fault. We showed up to court all the times and we took car of the others person's car before court and Paul was able to get the tickets dismissed. If he wasn't our lawyer we would have been looking at some hefty tickets. Thanks to him we walked away saving money.

Mr. Serkland first of all, has a very charismatic and upbeat personality. Along side of that, he is very professional and experienced in his field therefore, worth the investment. I was excused of my ticket. Period!

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Paul for nearly a decade. I have had the opportunity to see him in action and he is an exceptional attorney. He is always careful to take the time needed to listen to his client's and their specific needs.
