Words cannot explain the gratitude I have for Lynn and her legal team. When I was arrested for a DUI, I felt my world came crushing down. Then I spoke with Lynn and she has such a big heart and is such a caring person. She fought tooth and nail for me and My case was dismissed. She is an amazing Lawyer and I would recommend her to anyone going through the same thing. Truly amazing work!

I was referred to Lynn from a friend's lawyer and I'm very happy I ended up working with her. I didn't end up going to court once as she took care of everything for me after our initial meetings and conversations. She also was able to win my DMV hearing for me which saved me from having to lose my license or install a breathalyzer in my car. This was my first experience with a lawyer so I don't know how much they usually cost but this was worth every dollar regardless. I would recommend her to anyone looking for someone with a lot of experience and confidence in her ability to win your case.

Ms. Gorelick is experienced (FYI, her father was a DUI lawyer too!), competent, respected, and most importantly, selfless. During our initial phone call, first thing she said after hearing about my ridiculous night - "Do not hire an attorney." She went on to explain exactly how the case will be thrown out and it happened exactly how she predicted. I was still nervous and skeptical naturally, so I retained her immediately (As Other lawyers wanted to go to court and charge me high fees in the name of "profit" and "greed"). I paid her the minimum fee to monitor the case even though she repeatedly told me that I do not need an attorney for my case.
DMV case was thrown out immediately. Speaking of DMV, you know Lynn is the best when the DMV agent says that Gorelick is the best, objective, and an exceptional negotiator.
Court case was thrown out as well few months after expected.
Throughout the process, I annoyed the heck out of Ms. Gorelick, I even got angry at the system, but she was patient with me.
I will point out that Ms. Gorelick is very calm and objective. So, yes, at times, it may appear that she is not energetic but I believe that's just the wisdom she has gained working with her father for a long time and then becoming a lawyer herself. She has seen millions of such DUI cases and other worse criminal cases - So I can see why she can be so calm. That said, her calmness is her strength, not her weakness.
Thank you for giving me support through this process and saving my professional license and career. I had too much to lose. However, in a way, I'm glad that incident occurred, because I am re-evaluating, resetting, and implementing my priorities in life. "All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me... You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you."
Thank you, Ms. Gorelick.
