I was in a tough spot. I got a DUI that involved a traffic collision. My car was totalled and I my BAC was two times the legal limit. Nicole was referred to me and I am very glad she was. I spoke with several attorneys, most of whom were more concerned about having me sign a contract before they could answer any questions. This is my first criminal offense of any type, I was already uneasy about the situation, including possible jail time, and those other attorneys did not make anything better. Nicole was very professional and knowledgeable. Just speaking with her made me feel comfortable and her knowledge allowed her to inform me of everything I could expect. She impressed me immediately.
After hiring Nicole I could not have been happier (unless of course I could go back in time and not get the DUI). She immediately took action to help me keep my license as long as possible and even managed to get the court schedule and the mandatory 30 day suspension work with my work schedule. When the case actually went to court, she negotiated a very good deal considering my situation. WIth the facts of the incident, I was possibly looking at jail time. Instead, I received only the minimum penalties dictated by law and somehow, she was even able to get some of the standard requirements waived. I also got money credited toward my fines for time served, but I was only in the drunk tank for a few hours. I have no idea how, but that is one of the reasons I believe Nicole to be at the top of her field. She definitely knows what she is doing and how the courts work.
While I never wanted to be in this situation, or any other criminal situation, Nicole made the experience less stressful than I anticipated. She took care of everything and kept me completely informed on what I needed to do. She attended court on my behalf and I only had to make one appearance, which was actually optional, but I chose to do so. Currently I am on track to have my license back in no time, my work and family life were not affected and I credit this to Nicole's efforts. While I hope you never need a criminal attorney, if you do, Nicole is the person to call.
