Exceeds Expectations
I went to Mr. Thurman to handle my DWI charge. He was very professional handling the situation. He made sure I understood all situations of my case. His communication was very open and informative. I always could count on him to answer any questions I had. I would recommend Mr. Thurman to anyone that needs a lawyer.

Straight Forward and Honest
I was referred to Mr. Thurman through a friend in St. Louis, and was so happy for that connection. Mr. Thurman told me of the possible outcomes and directions we could pursue and was very honest with everything. He was very attentive in returning calls and answering every question I had. He went above and beyond my expectations and I would use Mr. Thurman in the future in a heartbeat, but hopefully I won't have anymore run ins with the law.
