Mrs. Dizon-Maughan represented me in court in a DUI Case considering that I was out of state and she did everything she could, including, going out of her way, to better assist me. she also gave me a good discount in the price of her services.

Abby is a tremendous lawyer. This was my first experience with any sort of legal help and she made everything very easy to understand. She is really on top of everything that needs to be done, and was able to get me the best possible deal for my case. I would highly recommend her.

Outstanding Job!
I had got into trouble for my first offense ever for a DUI and Abby worked magic. With the first phone call she asked the questions needed to assist me and explained what to expect. Abby was very responsibly priced locally compared to other firms. I finalized my court date and everything worked out thanks to Abby and her hard work. Great communication via email, text, or phone. I did not have to worry having her on my side. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs assistance in the Salt Lake City Area.

Excellent and very professional
When I first contacted Abby with my DUI case she was very understanding and ready to help me put the case behind me. From the minute I hired her, she was already requesting the video from the police and toxicology reports and setting up my drivers license hearing. Not once did I ever hear her say that I was guilty, even though I clearly was, it was always that I made a mistake. When it came to court she was always there by my side and spoke for me because she knew that I had bad anxiety. She was, and still is, proactive in me getting the right help with counseling and drug classes. She was able to get me off on a wreckless driving count/non alcohol, which is more than I deserved. She made the long process easy! And then I got another DUI and she was still as understanding and ready to help! She never skipped a beat on any of my cases! It's been 2 years since my last DUI and she still is by my side. I refere her to anybody I know that needs a lawyer because of how professional and caring she is. I highly recommend Abby. Highly!

Strong! Dedicated & Determined!
Abby is one amazing women! Her constant communication and updates provided me with peace of mind. Abby is overall an amazing strong women who had my back 100% with my case. She followed through with her promises and deadlines which was refreshing compared to past attorneys I had. Abby was on top of everything with my case and was very willing and easy to work with when it came to payments. If I ever were to need an attorney again I would hire Abby in a heartbeat! She definitely knows her stuff & fought for me tooth & nail! I am so pleased with her service & grateful I hired her!
