Superb 10/10
I was referred to this company and Asante specifically by one of my closest friends and I quickly grasped that it was one of the best and most responsible decisions I could have made regarding both my case and mental peace. From quick responses to excellent results, I have been nothing but expressively impressed by the capabilities of Asante and the company. I've had an excellent day, getting two charges dropped, one a felony and the other a class A misd. With full confidence can I, and will I, recommend this company to my friends and peers alike. Good looks, I mean it

Very Dedicated, And extremely awesome!!
I first met Ms.Asante when she was a public defender and she represented me. She got that case dismissed. So when I faced a felony charge (s) with no hope and extremely scared of the outcome.. I researched her and found she had her on firm. I am a mother of 4 children and I definitely face the struggles of life, But Ms. Asante she’s CARES , really cares.. Overall I was facing 2 felony charges. Not only when I initially got arrested she got my bond reduce so it was possible for me to get out and come home to my family, She got one charge no bill, and the other felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor.. She is amazing at what she do and extremely kind. Always professional… Thank you Ms.Asante..

Experience Layer Asante Dankwaa
My experience with a Layer Dankwaa was awesome, because I didn't have any hope with my case but at long last was able to get me out of that messy situation. BB.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I highly recommend Ms. Adwoa Asante. She was very nice and easy to talk to. She went above and beyond what I ever expected and was able to get my DWI case dismissed. My case took over two years to resolve and she stayed very focused and persistent throughout the whole process. I don’t know what I would have done without her. She exceeded my expectations. I would 100% recommend her to anyone that needs help defending themselves in a court of law. If I could give 10 stars, that still would not be enough to acknowledge my appreciation to Ms. Asante's representation of my case.

Adwoa is beyond excellent
I was fortunate enough to have Adwoa on my side for trial. She is a fearless, passionate lawyer. The entire trial she was by my side explaining everything. She had excellent and decisive strategies throughout. And her closing was one of the most passionate speeches that I have ever seen. Choose Adwoa as your lawyer!

Great Services
Ms. Asante is a very friendly and professional lawyer. She knows what she’s doing, and explained to me in a simple way how my case would be processed. She helped me to get my misdemeanor charge dropped, so it was never filed.

“Wonderful Attorney”
I can not thank Attorney” Adwoa Asante enough, she truly came through for me and my son. She fought really hard for him and got his robbery case dismissed. We don't know what we would have done without her. I cant thank her enough for all her hard work and determination. If you need a fighter and a great Attorneys on your side, “She is the best Lawyer for case.” Thank you once again Ms. Asante for everything.

Competent and Informed
She really exudes professionalism. I hired her for a divorce and later for a case I got in Lewisville. She was amazing! Always responded to my questions and put me at ease. Everything turned out perfect and I am really grateful for her. I recommend her to everyone.

exceptional
Exceptional would probably be an understatement! Having never had to deal with an assault case before and allowing a public defender to take my case had me a bit apprehensive. I was always lead to believe that PD don’t fight as hard because the clients aren’t being charged for their service. Ms. Asante changed my entire perspective. She reviewed everything about my case front to back and used her knowledge of the law to determine my best option. For majority of the process I was a nervous wreck but she took time out to calm me and answer any question i had even if i had asked them a thousand times prior. After her argument i had no fear that my case would be dismissed and it definitely was. She kept me updated every step of the way and she’s went above and beyond for me. Although i never plan on having to use her services any more because my plan is to stay trouble free! However i will definitely recommend her to anyone! She’s is beyond amazing and i appreciate her far more than she’ll ever know !

Respectable and efficient
Adwoa was my public defender during the duration of my case. She was extremely helpful in explaining the legal procedures and timetable and setting forth expectations for myself. Having this be my first experience with the legal system it was scary, but Adwoa explained everything in layman’s terms and helped successfully achieve a good outcome for myself and my case. Her representation was helpful and humane and I felt respected in her capable hands. Even with a large work load she reached out to me and made herself available to my concerns and kept an open line of communication through phone and email correspondence. Thank you to Adwoa for being such a dedicated, efficient, and helpful public servant
