Criminal Case
Mr. Corso was an amazing lawyer. I was charged with misdemeanor of solicitation of a prostitute. The charge was embarrassing, unjust and it screams first amendment violation. However after going to court and going thru the judicial system, Mr Corsco got my case dismissed. He was reasonable on the cost and he did an amazing job. He listened to my concerns and he was always prompt on answering questions. I am not sure some people here have had a problem with him, but you cannot make everyone happy. I will highly recommend him to represent you.

Very professional and effective
I had an excellent experience with Corso Law Group. Both Megan and Chris were very knowledgeable and responsive in terms of answering any questions I had. My particular situation was one that I had expected to have to face more serious penalties than I wanted to, however Chris was able to convince the judge to allow me to enroll in a diversion program, which simply means having to take a driving class. As long as that’s completed the charge will be dropped and my driving record will remain clean. I 100% percent recommend Corso Law Group.

Got a Red Light Camera Ticket in Scottsdale - Corso Law Group got it dismissed
Got a red light camera ticket while visiting Scottsdale. After some research online I reached out to Corso Law Group. Megan Hawkins was very helpful. She described what the laws surrounding red light camera tickets were, what their approach would look like, what the timeline would be, and then kept me informed all throughout the process. Finally, about eight months after I originally received the ticket, Corso Law Group got it dismissed. All I had to pay was the well earned attorney fee. Highly recommend.

I am satisfied
The Corso law group was one of the only lawyers that would take on my case. While I understand traffic violations aren't significant to most I'm a professional driver and I can not afford to have points on my license. I called them and they handled my case. It was an easy process and no points were added to my record. I also did not have to take time off to go to court. Thank you!

The best firm for photo radar tickets
If you happen to be unlucky enough to get a photo radar ticket in Scottsdale you should engage this firm. They are absolute experts on the system and you can trust them to get you through it. These tickets, contrary to popular belief, cannot be ignored and can cost you big time if you do ignore. Megan especially is incredibly knowledgeable and kind. She was super easy to deal with and I would not hesitate to hire them in the future should I ever have this happen again (I sure hope not).

Speeding Ticket
I was traveling across country got a speeding ticket and found myself in a very tough spot. Mr. Corso was very professional and confident in what he could do for me and also very realistic about the possible outcomes of my case. Megan Hawkins was the hands-on person and kept me up to date on all that was going on in the background and made sure that all details were being attended to. I am very thankful to them both as they went above and beyond to get my case resolved. Would highly recommend them! Thank you very much guys!

Helped Me With PV Civil Traffic Tickets
Suffice it to say, I had a little situation involving multiple "interactions" with Paradise Valley's onerous panopticon of photo radar traps. Well, Mr. Corso lives up to the reputation 100%. Though we did not win the service hearing, we won all cases in our civil traffic hearing. Besides being the lawyer he says he is, I just would like to say how well taken care of I was throughout the whole process. His proactive communication made me feel reassured he was on top of things at all times. Also, shoutout to his manager Megan Hawkins -- she is just as terrific and on the ball, courteous and professional. Better call Corso.

Newly Enforced AZ Traffic Citation
My experience with Mr. Corso and his firm met and exceeded my expectations. Being cited with a novel traffic violation, I was not sure what to expect; I was however immediately put at ease by the responsiveness and thoroughness of the firm. By both phone and email, my concerns were handled with the utmost professionalism and patience that can only be expected from a top law firm. It is well known that for those practicing law time is paramount and rarely available, however it was apparent that this firms first priority was to keep my best interests in mind. I would recommend reaching out to Corso Law Group for any of your Arizona law concerns!

Awesome Attorney!!
If you need an attorney for speeding in Arizona do not look any farther. Christopher Corso and Megan Hawkins exceeded my expectations. They go above and beyond with timely communication, counsel and most importantly end results. I was always kept updated by Megan and Chris with the status of my case and the advice I received was to the point and accurate. Chris defintely fights for your rights and he represented me accurately and with excellent results. I was not expecting to be completely absolved of a radar instrument speeding citation but receiving and pleading to a civil instead of a criminal speeding citation was the very best case scenerio. I would highly recommend Christopher Corso and Megan. They are for you when it seems no one else is in your corner.

Speeding Ticket - Recommended
I hired Attorney Corso for a speeding ticket that was a trap were speed limit was quickly reduced from 65pm to 45mph. I had a very clean record but the officer wasn't willing to reduce it and I now faced a criminal speeding ticket. I called and spoke with Megan who was the firm manager and she was able to walk me through the process, possible outcomes, severity and what potentially their firm could do to challenge the ticket with sought after goal of getting it reduced and/or dismisses. Once hired, peace and mind was found quickly as Mr. Corso & Megan handled everything around court dates, etc. while providing updates along the way. Eventually the D.A. wasn't willing to budge much at all which Mr. Corso didn't settle and appealed. The ticket was reduced to which I was then able to take traffic school and the ticket is no longer on my record! This was my first speeding ticket in 10 years and I wasn't remotely aware of how severe Arizona pursues speeding ticket much less a speeding ticket over 20 mph, which is considered criminal. I will honestly say, I was very tempted to save the cost of hiring an attorney and take my chance of appealing it in court myself with hopes of it getting reduced. In hindsight, I've very glad I spoke with Megan and chose Mr. Corso because if I had not, I would of likely had an minimally reduced fine amount but criminal speeding ticket and points on my record for a very long time. Thanks Mr. Corso and Megan! You both were fantastic and I highly recommend. I hopefully won't need their help anytime soon but if so I without a doubt will be contacting them immediately.

He truly cares and goes the extra mile!
Much respect and appreciation to Corso Law Group. He goes the extra mile, and walked what he talked! Got a traffic ticket in Arizona with a few other serious charges that made me quite nervous. Mr. Corso had a great plan of action, and all charges were dismissed! His attention to detail and knowledge is impressive. Very experienced at their profession, and I can say they truly care about their clients. Christopher as well as Megan are extremely authentic, patient, and the communication was fantastic. Megan was super helpful, prompt, and genuine. Great people! If you are looking for a quality attorney in Arizona who will take your case seriously, I highly recommend Corso Law Group!

Super Friendly Firm
I know this is suppose to be about Attorney Corso but I really enjoyed talking to the girls that would call or email me to check up and make sure I was following along the driving course I was offered to take for receiving my ticket. I only spoke to Mr Corso once but he was super friendly and got my ticket reduced to the driving school, I'm happy. I'm not sure if it's okay to say this but he also gave me a discount due to covid and lack of income at the time. He's a very generous person, can't thank him enough.

Excellent Support
Glad we hired Chris and his firm to work through an interesting traffic citation incident. He and his General Manager, Megan, were very responsive and worked to remove the majority of the more challenging aspects of the citation incident. Glad we hired Chris and his folks and I would definitely recommend them.

Would Recommend 10/10
I was really happy and pleased with Attorney Corso's representation! I live out of state and was traveling through AZ when I received a speeding ticket along with a marijuana citation. I had never been in that position before, so I was unsure what to do. I contacted Corso Law Group and was instantly relieved! Megan was awesome and explained how everything worked in great detail, I knew before even speaking with Chris that they were who I wanted to represent me. After a couple of weeks of them working with the court they were able to come up with a plan to where, as long as I did what was necessary, the charges would be dropped and expunged off my record. I am forever grateful and indebted to the Corso Law Group! I couldn't of asked for a better firm to represent me. Everything was so smooth and easy and I would absolutly recommend them to anyone in a similar situation! The communication was so easy and top notch! Thank you so much guys, y'all saved me from a lot of stress and definitely helped save my future!!
