If you want to win, Netzley is the best lawyer in town!
I’ve hired Jason Netzley for criminal defense, DUI, and to recover a stolen dog. All 3 separate cases. I could not have asked for a better lawyer who cares about his clients and with his knowledgeable staff including Nicole Moews, they flat out get the job done. All 3 of these cases were very different and I received the results I was looking for in all 3. The criminal defense was handled swiftly and with little consequence. For the DUI Netzley and staff had me fully prepared and got my drivers license reinstated on the first try with no restrictions. For the stolen dog he put together a strong case, communicated constantly, was prepared to go to war for me, and got my dog returned to me in a prompt manner of time. I would never hire a different lawyer. I couldn’t be more satisfied and grateful. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me!

Exemplary representation
I could not have asked for better. Jason and the staff were amazing. Jason was very attentive and very clear on the direction that needed to be taken. He handled every issue promptly, even during the unusual circumstances that the pandemic brought. I can honestly say that Jason genuinely had my best interest at heart every step of the way and provided me with the exemplary representation.

Excellent lawyer and paralegal team
Mr. Netzley and his paralegal were hired to help my daughter regain her driver's permit after it was removed since she is a medical marijuana patient under the age of 18. Both he and his paralegal were wonderful at navigating new territory and law in filing her medical reports, contacting the correct offices and making sure everything was in order. All of his staff was prompt, professional and terrific to work with on every level. My daughter now has her permit and will be taking her driver's test shortly.

Best lawyer I have found
I have hired Jason for a few cases now and he has done a fantastic job with all my cases. He is easy going, reasonably priced, understanding, and has a sense of humor. He works promptly and gets the job done, he is responsive, and definitely has your back. I've also worked with Amanda at the office and she is amazing also. The whole staff there is caring and there for you.

Brave Law and Jason Netzley and his team
Jason and two of his attorneys represented me super great. Of the 4 tickets I got, 3 of them got dismissed and the last one I got court supervision for. So in 6 months my driving record will be clean. I drive for a living so this was extremely important to me and to my employer. Thank you all.

DMV Hearing
I hired Mr. Netzley to help get my license back. Admittedly I enjoyed his commercial on tv, which drew me in to his office. Him and his assistant were very helpful and friendly, assisting me throughout the entire process. They were knowledgeable, proficient, and know all the ins and outs pertaining to the DMV Hearing process. They helped me with everything along the way, fulfilling all of the state-imposed requirements. Mr. Netzley even found an error made by the DMV while going through my driving record. He went out of his way to get the mistake corrected, which in turn had a positive effect on my driving record. He is very pleasant and friendly to work with, but like his commercial suggests, “a beast in the courtroom.”

Jason was efficient and got me the best outcome possible in my situation.
On two separate occasions about two years apart, Jason took on traffic-related cases for my husband and then myself (mine was a speeding issue). Both were serious situations with terrifying potential outcomes that could completely wreck our futures as small business owners and a newly married couple who had just moved out of state. I called Jason very last minute and he still agreed to take on my case. He was efficient, answered my questions in a way that left me satisfied, and stood right next to me as I had to stand in front of the judge. He got me the best outcome possible in my situation. My husband's case from two years ago ended up getting tossed out by the judge anyway, but we felt confident that Jason would have won the case had it not been that way. He taught us a lot of valuable tips for the future, as well. Many reviews say he's expensive, and he may be, but I've never heard of a lawyer that isn't expensive. I would (and will) recommend Jason for any traffic-related issue for anyone in the Peoria area.

100% Recommend
Jason’s strong leadership and guidance enabled me to navigate comfortably through a very stressful time in my life. His experienced counsel saved me money which proved he’s led by compassion instead of greed. He was recommended by a close friend and I was not disappointed. If needed, I will definitely hire him again.
