Look No Further
Today I made my final appearance at the Daley Center after nearly three years of court dates. Ava was by my side through it all, and I couldn’t recommend her with more appreciation and sincerity. She is fierce and intelligent as a lawyer, and someone you can trust. Her accomplishments speak for themselves, but beyond that is well known and admired by everyone at the courthouse, from the judges and prosecutors to the clerks and janitors. She will not tell you how to proceed with your case, but will advise you on the best course of action at any point during its proceeding. Be prepared to do your homework on her recommendations. Do not hesitate to contact Ava for representation, she is worth 10x her vegetarian weight in gold!

Outstanding DUI attorney
Ava was incredibly knowledgeable and attentive during the course of my case. She kept me informed of all possible options and pitfalls. She was also outstanding in the courtroom. I would recommend her highly.

Great Adviser
I had one too many speeding tickets and had my license suspended while I was placed on supervision. Ms. George Stewart was great at giving me advice on what to do about it and how to keep this from happening in the future. If you want someone in your corner, you found the right person.

They know the law!
This is a connection I should have made years ago when I first encountered difficulty getting my drivers licence reinstated. The professional atmosphere and knowledgable staff gave me confidence in their ability to remedy my situation. I love it when my brothers and sisters handle their business right. Yep! I have a new lawyer now...!

The one for you
Ava was very dedicated to the case. She found everything that was needed to rule in my favor. She also give many suggestions and options. I appreciate Ava and recommend her to anyone who needs a five star lawyer.

I am certain that Ava is a great defense attorney. She always has the client's interest in mind. I also enjoy seeing her assertiveness in action. I feel like I'm in good hands with Ava being my attorney because she instills confidence in herself and her client. I knew right away when I saw Ava that I had a strong, fearless legal eagle representing and helping me through a difficult time. Not only is she very knowledgeable in her field but she is very straight-forward and direct with me as a client. However, she's very intelligent, so in the beginning I was unacquainted with some of the law vocabulary she used but I feel like I've learned a lot. I would recommend her to anyone.
