For 1 1/2 years, Adrian worked incredibly hard on my DUI case. I had complete trust in him that we would win and the DUI charges would be dropped. When my case finally went to trial, Adrian stepped up to the plate and hit a homerun for me. I was found not guilty and my case was dropped. Adrian works hard, is incredibly knowledgeable and does everything possible for your best interest. I would definitely recommend him because he is the best.

Adrian Madrone was exceptionally knowledgeable of the various moving parts and processes and proved indispensable to me and my case. I felt at every point in the process that Adrian was a step ahead, and was providing the right representation for me. The entire staff at Lustick Law firm were knowledgeable and friendly, contributing to my sense throughout the case that I was in good hands. The outcome was fair, as good as I could have expected, and definitely not one that would have happened without Adrian's advocacy. I would strongly recommend Adrian Madrone.

I was pulled over very late at night and arrested for DUI. I blew well over the limit. The local lawyer suggested that, since it was my first offense and the penalty was low, I should plead guilty and save the money I would have spent on a lawyer.
My parents suggested otherwise. I hired Adrian Madrone, and he was worth every penny. He got my conviction dropped from a DUI down to a Negligent Driving 1st degree, the lowest conviction short of a dismissal.
Because I followed his advice, the judge even dropped the jail time and community service. I have to spend a little time on probation and then I'm scot free.
My license didn't even get suspended by the DOL.
During the whole process, Adrian was very available. My calls and emails were answered quickly and to my satisfaction. I was kept up-to-date on all the happenings of my case; I never felt left in the dark.
Adrian Madrone is capable, present, and has a good sense of humor.
I recommend him.
