It's been over for years since my near DUI. Carla didn't set unrealistic expectations for the outcome of the trial but we were very happy with the end results. Going through such a costly, emotional and timely experience like that, this attorney made me feel at ease with the process. She was very clear on what was expected of me during the trial. I trusted her judgement and got a better outcome than I expected.
The lesson has been learned and luckily I won't have to request her help again but if I had to all over again, I'd still hire her in a heartbeat. Thanks, Carla.

Once I was arrested for DUI with a .179 BAC, I knew I had the long road ahead of me and I needed the best lawyer I could get. I did a lot of research and talked to many lawyers. I went with Carla because every other lawyer I spoke with made it seem like this whole thing was going to be a slam dunk and shared with me how many cases they had dropped or dismissed. I knew better then to fall for the trap of going with a lawyer who promises the world to me. I wanted to lawyer who was straight up with me, even if it was not an answer I wanted to hear, at least it would be the truth. Carla was there to explain everything to me and guide me through the system. She was always available to me when I had questions or concerns. With Carla's help and a bit of luck, I had the charge dropped to a Reckless Driving and no additional fines. I was shocked to go from double over, to a reckless in the court that I was in. I can't tell you that you should expect to have charges dropped with factors I was facing, but I can tell you if you go with Carla, you will be in good hands. I truly appreciate the help!

I was arrested for DUI December 29. I called and spoke with many lawyers, in regards to helping me fight my case. I felt the most confident in Carla. They were not only open and up front with me about what I needed to do, but with the costs associated with a DUI. They also worked with me to help make payments, as I did not have the funds right away.
Carla was there for me and very helpful. I was able to call or email her anytime with questions or concerns. And she was very calming, when I felt like freaking out.
Bottom line, by following Carla’s direction, I was able to win the DOL hearing and my charge was reduced to a negligent driving in the first degree. This kept me from losing my license, having to obtain SR-22 insurance and lowered my fines.
