Highest Quality Representation Available
Sydney was extremely thorough regarding every single detail of my criminal case, providing multiple highly comprehensive rebuttals to the state's arguments, that ultimately resulted in a clear and powerful win for my case. She was highly prepared and excellent at questioning and cross examination, getting many beneficial details on the stand to aid our case. Additionally, she did not let any conflicting testimony get by her, without calling it out, and there were MANY small details to this case. Sydney was very strong and focused in court hearings. Her job did not stop after the hearings. She spent many additional hours providing relevant, powerful case law examples in a lengthy closing brief, driving home the win. She worked many additional hours, after the hearings, and it is fair to say she exceeded any expectation I could have had. Last but not least, Sydney treated me with respect. I could tell she cared about me as a person. I will always be thankful to Sydney for helping me through the worst experience of my life. I highly recommend her for criminal defense based on my experience.

Sydney’s Review
I hired Sydney after I went through an unfortunate event with my ex. From the very beginning she was very understanding and supportive. Sydney was able to lower charges from the very beginning to allowing me to work out of state and working with the courts to work with my schedule. Throughout the process Sydney was very informative and was able to get my charges dismissed. I’m very thankful for having her help in a difficult time and would absolutely recommend her for counsel if you ever needed it.

Exceeded expectations. Best lawyer & law firm in AZ. Honest. Communicated constantly (thank you)
Best experience with a lawyer of all time. Professional. Honest. Communicated with me the entire time and exceeded my expectations by far… Honestly Tait & Hall, Sydney, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the hours you put in helping me with my case. If you want an Attorney who fights for you & results are all that matter then I would recommend making sure you find Sydney or one of her associates to represent you. The process was easy, effective & I suppose the best part is knowing from the beginning my options, chances & possible outcomes. I told her to do whatever she would do if it was her case and I believe the outcome is exactly what happened. Perfect. Happy. Best lawyer in Arizona & I’ll scream it from the top of the canyons if asked to for I am impressed. The stigma is completely removed all by working with her on this case. Emailing and phone calls along with updates and of course 100% best outcome ever so thank you so much. A+++++

Review for Sydney Oshinski
Sydney did an amazing job. She was incredibly empathetic and understanding and did such a great job explaining complicated situations. She showed incredible patience and intelligence and i never doubted for a moment that she wouldn’t fight on my behalf. She is still continuing to be helpful answering general questions and has always made herself available to me. I was so thankful she was my attorney and would 1000% recommend her to others. I’m incredibly grateful for her.

Outstanding Service
I am so thankful for Ryan & Sydney's service. They are VERY knowledgeable and professional. It took a long hunt to find a representation that was knowledgeable in contractual law and familiar with working with the AZ State Board of Education. Working with this firm went smoothly and I felt confident with my representation all the way. They were able to have my name completely cleared of any wrongdoing, maintaining my outstanding professional record. I am so grateful to all the wonderful staff. They were so supportive and got me through this uncertain time with respect, empathy, and kindness. I hope I never need representation again, but if I did they would be my first call, without a doubt. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Tait and Hall, The Very Best !!
Let me start by saying that Sydney was as professional as they come. She communicated very well and always let me know where we were with my case, she was strait to the point and was very honest about what I could expect going forward. She has a very positive outlook when discussing my case and she always put my mind at ease throughout the whole process. I was facing prison time if the charges were upheld but they got dismissed and thanks to Sydney I got the minimum sentence and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Sydney made all the difference as I was going through this unfortunate event and I absolutely recommend Tait and Hall to anyone who is in need of the best defense team in Arizona. In the future if I am in need of an attorney I will only use Tait and Hall. Thank you for fighting for me and treating me like a person with no judgement through it all.

Above & beyond
I’ve had a lengthy case and for how long it ran I didn’t need to show for every court appearance they covered that even after my case was completed I still had to serve a minimum time and she still took care of not only returning my fiancé’s call but following through and contacting the jail to assure I would be released exactly on time - appreciated her cover as a client
