I was a first time offender, traffic violation. Mr. Neighbors took complete and total professional care of my problem, at a more than reasonable price. Highly recommend.

Case Dismissed!
I had somewhat of a unique incident. I was charged with DUI, trespassing on railroad property, interference with law enforcement, and failure to take a breathalyzer. I was hospitalized following my arrest, and was under the influence of multiple contraindicated medications that I had been legally prescribed and we're being taken as directed. Despite this, charges were still pursued, and that is when I enlisted the help of Steve Neighbors. He was compassionate and knowledgeable, and after hiring him I did not have to appear in court myself at all, as he represented me completely in the 3 occasions I was to appear. After gathering all supporting documentation and consultation s with the prosecutor, Steve successfully got my case dismissed. The only thing I regret is that I didn't hire him sooner.

Steve Neighbors
Attorney Neighbors is a very friendly and sociable person who will make you feel at ease with yourself as well as with him. He makes sure to provide all the actions that's needed to be taken in order to achieve the desired result. Although I give God the glory for the outcome of my case, I was pleased to see how God used him as an instrument to walk us through the process and also to the plea that we received in the middle of December 2016. I would recommend him to anyone!

Helpful Guy
Experienced and easy to work with. Very straightforward when talking about my options, made it very easy. Ended up getting my sentence reduced to just a fine and never had to make an appearance in court. He handled everything and made it as painless as possible for me.

Dedicated to help!
I was referred to Mr. Neighbors from a friend who had also used him for a DUI case. I called on a Sunday morning expecting a phone call at the earliest Tuesday morning. To my surprise, he called me back within a couple hours on Sunday. I immediately knew he was the one I would work with. Steve kept me up to date and answered all the questions I had. He never missed a court date and always informed me with everything I needed to hear and know. This whole situation with cops, lawyers and the court house was very new to me, and I had no clue what to expect. I felt very comfortable and taken care of working with him, and he got me thru everything I needed to accomplish. He is very knowledgable and a great person to work with, I can't thank him enough for helping me.
