For a year I had been through more then most people. In the process of dealing with everything going on I handled the stress very wrong. My parents hired Bill Vig. I am so blessed! Bill never judged me, was always there even after 5 pm to call me about my case. Bill was one of the first people to believe in me and see me for a person who made mistakes but not a criminal. Bill gave me my life back and I will be forever grateful. Please choose bill for any situation.

I have known Bill a long time, and have very high confidence in him as an attorney. Previously, Bill handled a very tough situation involving a DUI arrest along with 6 other tickets that were issued the same evening. On that occasion, Bill very thoroughly reviewed all the evidence, determined that I was NOT, in fact, under the influence at the time of arrest, and got my summary suspension revoked because of errors made by the law enforcement agency. He greatly reduced the 7 tickets to two tickets and supervision, which I completed successfully.
I again hired Bill recently when I unfortunately received 3 tickets in the time span of one month. One of the tickets I had already paid. After reviewing the evidence on the two other instances (evidence which Bill obtained by doing research on Google maps) and then consulting three law books, Bill determined that I had not even broken the law! After sharing the evidence with the state's attorney, that ticket was dropped. Bill very graciously negotiated with the judge a payment plan for the other ticket that I could afford.
I highly recommend Bill Vig as a most competent and thorough attorney who represents his clients well in court.

Bill previously worked for the States Attorneys office and has extensive DUI and Criminal Felony trial experience. He is aggressive and prepares his cases well for trial. He is a good attorney and will fight for your case!
