My teen son was in a minor traffic accident last year and received court supervision for it. Recently he received a speeding ticket and I decided to look for a lawyer to understand the ramifications of having two incidents within a year for a teenager. I saw Ms. Waechter's reviews here and on Yelp and all were very positive. I decided to reach out to her. She responded immediately to me and we spoke for a few minutes on the phone. After talking to her on the phone, I decided to hire her to represent my son with his speeding ticket. It was the best decision I could have made. She is professional and knows exactly what to do.
Having her at the court with us put my mind at ease and she was able to get my son court supervision for his second ticket. I would highly recommend Ms. Waechter to anyone who finds themselves in a similar position with their teenager. I'm sorry I did not hire her the first time when he was involved in the minor traffic accident.

We were referred to Attorney Waechter and couldn't be happier! She was very proactive with our case and went way beyond our expectations to get the outcome we were hoping for, but really never thought was possible.

I decided to hire a lawyer after my teen daughter was involved in a minor traffic accident and was charged with driving too fast for conditions.
I initially posted a question on Avvo and Ms. Waechter responded immediately with sound advice that made me immediately comfortable. We spoke by phone the next day and I hired her.
We had 2 court dates. The second day we had quite a few conversations about how to proceed. Ms. Waechter explained every option in a way we could easily understand. She helped us make the best decision and my daughter's case was dismissed.
I am extremely happy that I hired Ms. Waechter. And would recommend her to anyone that finds themselves heading to traffic court.
