Best decision for your Criminal Defense. She'll take care of the rest!
Patricia represented me in three separate criminal cases, and managed to get a very favorable outcome in each case.
The first case was a Class A misdemeanor case. Patricia did not represent me at the time I made the guilty plea bargain for one year Conditional Discharge (if she had, I could have likely been better off). I hired her one month before my sentence was due to finish because I unfortunately picked up a new DUI charge while on conditional discharge. Furthermore I only had 44 of 150 community service hours completed (I did have hip surgery weeks before my final court date where everything was due, but still I had a whole year to do it and I put myself in that situation). So Patricia fought the State's Petition-to-Revoke (PTR) my conditional discharge sentence, and have me re-sentenced, which likely would have resulted in jail time, as they were three very serious Class A misdemeanor charges. On the PTR, Patricia was able to get me an extra three months to finish my community service hours. Once the service hours were complete, she was able to ultimately beat the PTR, and achieved a satisfactorily termination of this case.
The second case was a DUI first-offense, which I picked up while I was on conditional discharge for the above mentioned case. FIRST, Patricia filed and won a motion-top-rescind the summary-suspension of my driver's license. She did so the same day I got the notice, and my license was suspended less than one month as a result. Patricia was extremely patient with me on this case, as I took a long time to complete tasks she asked me to, such as a DUI evaluation, as well as getting started with the evaluation treatment recommendation. She counseled me to get said tasks done because she was fighting to get me court supervision, and ultimately, she prevailed. Per the final court supervision plea bargain, Patricia was able to negotiate to dismiss the three other traffic violations that happened in addition to the DUI. In the end, no criminal or driving record conviction, very reasonable fines and court costs, a counseling.
I should note that the DUI case took 12 months to resolve, again, because I was slow. So slow, in fact, that I picked up a new criminal Class A misdemeanor traffic offense. I didn't hire Patricia for this particular new charge. Luckily, it was dismissed. When I told Patricia about it, she was very understanding about it and reassuring, so that I didn't feel bad about myself and give up altogether. This is what makes her that RARE kind of attorney. I know others that would drop me as a client, and others refused to represent me.
THIRD and FINAL (hopefully!) case Patricia represented me in was for a Class B misdemeanor Aggravated Speeding charge. Now this happened before my DUI case was settled, and I was sentenced. I initially wasn't going to hire counsel, because the judge said court supervision was an option in exchange for a guilty plea. I asked for time to get an attorney. I just wanted time to think, and actually ALMOST pleaded guilty without hiring counsel, just hoping I could get supervision. Here is again why Patricia is a rare and amazing person and attorney. I literally called her at the end of business hours ONE DAY BEFORE my court date. I am so glad that I did. she explained to me the downside and risks to pleading guilty to a misdemeanor traffic offense for my criminal and driving records. Even in exchange for supervision, and no conviction. I am so glad I hired her for this matter. The speeding ticket was reduced so that it was a petty traffic offense, and not criminal anymore. The other moving violation was dismissed, and I walked away with court supervision, court costs and barely any fine. I got to keep my driver's license (again), and keep my records clean.
In conclusion, Patricia is an extremely skilled, knowledgeable, effective, and rare attorney who is also kind and empathetic. She is THE BEST option you have when you need a criminal defense.
