My lawyer was the one calling me every other day to update me on my case. He got me the time served just as I wanted. He did all this while being my public defender. This guy is driven

Matthew Shanks is definitely worth the call!
I contacted Matthew Shanks after receiving a Class B misdemeanor for a DWLI. It was the worst thing that has ever happened to me! Matthew took the time to explain why and how this happened (I was SHOCKED).... I explained to him and that I was pending an official job offer and this was going to keep me from getting the job. The very next morning, Matthew went to the court house to get my case dismissed. He immediately emailed me a copy of the dismissal to present to the employer just in case they needed it. He also mailed a formal copy. He held my hand throughout the whole process and provided quick and seamless service. He also worked out a great payment plan. I highly recommend contacting him for any legal help.
