I hired Ted for a DUI about 7 months ago which I was able to put behind me just this past couple of weeks. This was actually the second time he has represented me (the other being 7 years ago) and on both occasions he was worth every dime.
I could go on and on about his charisma in the court room and his proactive (and helpful) relationships with everyone involved in the DUI process, from the people working in the court system to the councilors in the treatment programs and the various other people you might encounter while going through a DUI case.
During my most recent experience, I heard dozens of horror stories from other people I met along the way about their lawyers and the awful experiences they had encountered including jail time, lengthy court imposed treatment, 2 year license suspensions, scram and alcohol monitoring bracelets, prolonged active probation, and a litany of frustration with attorneys who are difficult to get in touch with and have to be reminded by their own clients about pending legal issues. I experienced no such issues. Also, keep in mind that most of these people were on their first offense. This was my 2nd and I had it much easier by comparison.
I could easily fill a page describing Ted’s aptitude as a lawyer and abilities as a courtroom orator, but I would place the biggest value on his gift for making you feel at ease throughout the process. Going through a DUI is an extremely stressful situation and there is no monetary value I can put on what it meant to me and my family to have Ted taking on the larger portion of that stress. With Ted, I always felt confident that my case was being well handled allowing me to worry less about courts and judges and focus on the more important aspects of my life such as family and work.
From your first consultation with Ted (which is very comprehensive and immediately begins to set your mind at ease), to your final day in court, he is with you every step of they way. I was always kept abreast of any new court developments, informed on how the prosecuting attorney was viewing my case, and kept in the loop on Ted and his team’s investigation into the facts.
I truly believe Ted takes a very personal approach to what he does and he really made a genuine connection with me and my family. He understood and reminded me that I'm not a bad person and I just made a dumb mistake one evening. The bottom line is that I would recommend Ted to anyone facing a DUI. Thanks Ted.
