Extremely satisfied
I am extremely satisfied with the results Mr. Figler was able to produce. He worked very hard and went above and beyond for me. It felt like he cared about myself and my case, and went the extra mile to get things done. Very easy to work with and explained things in a straight forward way, which was helpful for someone like me who doesn’t know much about the legal/court system. I am very glad I went to him because I don’t believe I would of had the same results or urgency with a public defender. I absolutely recommend him.

Mr. Figler represented me in a case in which I was faced with 2 counts of Domestic Battery. As most of the time the man will be charged. I was hoping for a gracious Plea since I was lied on by 2 family members. Mr. Figler was able to get the case thrown out. He is great and I recommend him.

Went from a possible life in prison to a gross misdemanor... are you kidding?!?
Referred by one his old client, I was facing bs charges including kidnapping on my own girlfriend. Yeah I messed up, but that was crazy. He fixed it fast. Totally recommend this guy. Smart and good to work with.

Excellent Lawyer
Had a Felony battery case, lawyer was reasonable in fees and got the entire thing thrown out. While he was in court with me he got another case dismissed by the Judge (taking money off of false pretenses). Excellent attorney.
