A Phenomenal Attorney
Clayton is one phenomenal attorney! He is ABSOLUTE THE BEST! After being appointed to me from another attorney and our initial consultation, I knew right away that he would be a good representative for my repeated DUI case. He was VERY EXPERIENCED. He asked all the right questions to get to know me as an individual in efforts to allow him to defend me properly. He was very consistent and reliable. Anytime of the day as long as he was available, he responded back when I had a question of concern or needed advice. He took the initiative to go out his way to find out every detail involving my case. He looked for avenues seeking the best deal possible for me as his client by staying in contact with the court officials. He would advised me of what he thought was best for me, but ultimately he would leave the decision up to me. He made sure I received all my paperwork or any court documentation through emails. Anything I didn’t quite understand, he explained it to me. He also made a lot of phone calls on my behalf. And After all the court appearance and his consistency with the courts, I was able to walk away from what should’ve been a FELONY-hands down... but was plead out as a MISDEMEANOR. I am truly thankful that I followed my first mind and chose Clayton to be my attorney with this case! I actually HIRED and FIRED an attorney prior to him. I felt very confident in my decision and I stuck with it! And I’m so glad I did!
