I have used Ken Elliott many times. Not only to represent me but my family as well. Doesn't matter the amount of charges agains't you. Elliott will always get you the best deal possible. I had been arrested a number of times & looking at going to prison. Elliott got me into a drug program & time served. He always keeps you informed of your case. In my experience with Ken's representation I have been satisfied with the results every time. I have referred many people to him & never been disappointed. I always say if KEN ELLIOTT can't do it nobody can. Thanks for your honesty Elliott.

Last year I was charged with three felonies. A friend of mine referred me to Ken Elliot. Hiring him was the best move I ever made.
So to get into the nuts and bolts of my case. I was charged with Cultivation, conspiracy to cultivate, and sales of a controlled substance. I've never been arrested or charged with a crime in my life. This was some scary sh!t. After sitting and talking to Ken he reassured me that I would be ok. It was great to hear that.
After some delays (on the prosecution side) we finally got our day in court at my preliminary hearing. I was nervous and afraid of what this day would be like. After hearing a lead narcotics detective (of 29 years!) LIE through his teeth about my supposed guilt, I almost gave up. But next was Mr Elliot's turn. And he came through for me. Mr Elliot pointed out the "discrepancies" in the prosecutions and the detectives case. It was like a TV show watching him work.
At this point we were recessed to lunch. It was the longest hour of my life. I was prepared to hear that they had enough evidence to take me to trial. Much to my surprise I was wrong!
As the judge went through each co defendants evidence they were found to have enough evidence to go to trial. Last up was me. The judge after reviewing the evidence asked the prosecutors some questions and took a long deep breath. He said he couldn't see the evidence. And in a few seconds threw my whole case out. My life had gone from the prospect of being a convicted felon to being a free man in seconds.
Every case is different and there are no guarantees in the legal system. But I can tell you this. If your fighting for your freedom, Ken is the guy you want in your corner. The other two defense lawyers couldn't hold a candle to Ken. If they were my lawyers I would've wanted to fire them and hire Ken.

I would have done better with a public defender. Drugs found in a car not registered to me a mile away from my house. The owner was doing bank robberies with that truck but during trial, he didn't even mention it to the jury. Paid him for fingerprint expert, but I didn't see a fingerprint expert. Plus I had 2 cases that I had to pay him separate for and he consolidated them. So the jury heard evidence from both cases. He is OK if you only want a deal but not for trial. 14 years at 80% for sales case
