  • Zachary James Mccready

    I highly endorse Mr. Amer. His experience makes him more qualified than 99% of the attorneys out there who call themselves criminal defense attorneys. Mr. Amer has a better chance than most attorneys of getting your case dismissed or reduced to an infraction. He's even won trials that most attorneys considered "unwinnable". Call him today.
