Very egotistical who has to pride himself by telling his prospective clients that he won the Martindale Hubbel award which means nothing when you lack customer service and care for your clients, hence the less than 7 score rating he received on this website. Don't waste your time or money!!!!!!

hired b/c a friend of a friend knew him & so we got discount price when I had my first DWI. He wouldn't really ever answer my emails & when I would see him in court he was very short with me, but if my parent was there he would talk to them in detail. Yes I gave him permission to speak with them but that doesn't mean that he should ignore half the questions I would have. When my probation was over I told myself I would never get behind the wheel again after drinking. I happen to suffer from a psychological illnesses & so some of my medications ,one in particular was high dosage of Ambien,if taken & I don't go to sleep like I should, I may end up doing something I don't remember. A month or so after I got off I went out with friends for their 21st birthday,& I swore to my parents my car would stay at their apartment & I wouldn't get into it until the next day when I was sober. Things didn't go as planned & my friends who were the good friends to have b/c they watch your back so you don't get into any trouble, but for some reason decided to let me take my car to pick up a special friend at the end of the night b/c they didn't want to get them, & if they had just done what they usually do say something like,"hey are you sure you want to drive when you just got off probation a month ago?", & I would have snapped into reality & realized they're right & would tell my other friend I couldn't drive to them.I get to my friends safely but we end getting into an emotional talk that really hurt feelings. The last thing I remember was taking my medication & then lying back down to go to sleep. But next thing I know its 7am or something I'm a cop car wondering what happened to me.Find out I was arrested for DWI second offender & I knew b/c of how this lawyer talked to me that if I mess up again it would be 10*worse. I felt extremely suicidal & an embarrassment to my family. I didn't want to go through all the court bs & fines that I just completed & knowing this time it would be worse, especially since I had just got off for my first one. When my parents bailed me out they knew I was feeling suicidal & took every kind of pill bottle that was in my room so I wouldn't do something I would regret. A day later 1 of my parents are gone for the & the other who left all my prescribed meds on their bathroom counter was busy outside & didn't even notice that I went & took all my meds & filled the bottles with Melatonin. I put on one of my favorite movies & took everything. I wrote a note it wasn't out in plain sight but I knew it would be found. I told my family I was doing them a favor. Since I'm writing this you can figure out I wasn't successful. I was told if my parent who was home had waited to come check on me 10 mins. after they did I would have been dead. When I woke up in the hospital I was upset & angry. I yelled asking why they just couldn't let me die. I went to rehab got help, changed up my meds. & my psychiatrist, was extremely lucky to still have my job, & having a fresh start in a new city. We found out that there were MANY MANY!! technicalities in my case which should have made it DISMISSED, but for some reason Mr. Cease didn't want to I guess acknowledge this to the judge b/C he told us all of this & I'm sitting there wondering why is it still open?? I wasn't drunk when I got pulled over. It had been at least 3-4 hrs. after drinking. But my medication, Ambien, which is known for causing people to do things they don't remember, & was exactly what happened to me. Mr. Cease didn't really press this important EVIDENCE to the judge & I'm still wondering why he didn't. Finally a deal which took about 6 months to be made.I had to agree to 2yrs probation. He didn't do what he was paid to do & I'm trying now to get it off.
