As anyone will say, dealing with a DUI is a huge burden and is very tough to deal with and I am glad I had Craig representing me. During the 6 month period between the first phone call I made to Craig to the evidentiary hearing, I was kept well informed. They were very knowledgeable, helpful, kind, upfront, honest and very timely with any questions I had. All possibilities were laid out in front of me, nothing was hidden. They were very hopeful yet very realistic with me and always explained what could/would happen. They walked me through all the steps, one at a time. I would recommend the Gillespie Law Firm to anyone needing help, particularly in the area of a DUI or DWI.
BAC. level of .133 and the case was dismissed

I read though as many review's as I could, I liked Craig's reviews and really liked the fact that he was a Prosecutor for 5 yrs in the beginning of his Career. Just like any firm, after you hire them you deal with their hired on assistance/attorney. At first I didn't care for that, but by the end, I wouldn't have had it any other way, Dave Roscoe is a very intelligent attorney and on his A game at all times. He conducted great interviews(recorded, then transcribed ) with all the police involved. This had the cops stumbling all over themselves on the stand when Craig got ahold of them at trial(with Transcript in hand). Craig has a very laid back and calmness about him that made the jury feel at ease and actually take the time to listen to him. He makes sure the jury sees you as an innocent person, not somebody that's guilty just because you are sitting in the defendants chair. He is also a very good juror selector which is critical. He studies each candidate in the selection process and makes good decisions in the tough final picks. He never made any promises as to the outcome , seemed to give his very honest opinion. All in all I had a very good experience with this firm and had an amazing outcome at the trial (Not Guilty) that I would never had if not for hiring Craig. Would def recommend.

I had a criminal case filed against me. Another lawyer, a friend of the family, had tried to help but really caused some serious issues for me. After asking friends and reviewing many attorneys on the internet, I felt Craig would be the best suited to help me. I was right!!! After I explained everything that happened to Craig, he contact the other lawyer, got all the facts together. Then he explained my options to me and how some of the things the lawyer said were going to cause an issue for this case. He was sure I clearly understood all of the options facing me. I was scared and handling this alone. He was always there when I needed to talk with someone, and this reassured me and reduced my anxiety, which was pretty high. His calm demeanor also helped keep me focused and steady.
It was a long a protracted process but Craig was always prepared, organized and calm which made me feel I had someone who was looking out for me. When we finally had a hearing and he questioned the person who was creating this lawsuit, he very calmly, deliberately and with the ability of a master tactician he was able to ask questions and get responses from that person which completely contradicted much of what was said in the complaint. The judge was clearly aware of the assertions and certainly noticed through Craig's deliberate series of qestions the lack of complete truthfulness of the person.
The case ended with the best possible outcome for me. If I ever needed an attorney again, which I hope I do not, I would certainly use Craig. I recommend him to anyone needing a great deal of help and support through trying times.
