I hired Alex after being charged with Disorderly Conduct for fighting. I felt I was the one that was wronged in the incident, and he agreed. Following Alex's advice, we waited out the other party involved with continuances, and because alcohol was a factor, he recommended I do a Alcohol Evaluation, which I did. As a result, Alex was able to negotiate with the prosecution and get the charged dropped from a criminal offence, to a mere $250 fine for being loud in public. Thanks to Mr. Alex Ransom, I still have no criminal record.

I went to prison after violating a No-Contact-Order between me and my girlfriend. I got prison time because we cooperated together in violating the no-contact-order a bunch of times!!! We are in love!!! (For your information the whole situation was crazy and blown way out of proportion.) Anyway the stupid no-contact-order was still in place after I got out of prison! I hired Alex to "rescind" it and make it go away. He was pretty sharp because he got the police reports on all the past violations. He argued to the judge that all the past violations were mutual and I wasn't stalking my girlfriend or hurting her or any other BS. The judge said she usually doesn't dismiss no-contact-orders but she would in this case because it was made clear that even though my probation was revoked I still did lots of jail. My girlfriend showed up and read from a letter Alex helped write. And we won!!!! Alex, thanks a MILLION for persuading the judge to dismiss the no-contact-order between me and my girlfriend.

I won't say much because my charges of Communicating With a Minor are embarrassing. But I really must thank Alex for getting my case dismissed. Alex convinced the prosecutor I was a different person when the charges happened. We put together a "merit package" for me to show I was on the up & up. And I stayed out of trouble. Alex stayed in the prosecutor's face for months. It worked. Alex knows what he's doing.

My husband was looking at approximately 10 years in prison. In Feb. of 2013 a shot gun was pointed at me and in response my husband pulled his weapon and got me out of there. That night my husband saved my life and was later arrested and charged with assault 2 with a deadly weapon. I thought I was going to lose my husband because of a messed up justice system. After 9 months we received the NOT GUILTY verdict from the jury. Thank you Alex for giving me my husband back forever!!!!.

It was pretty messed up by I got charged with Assault 2 on a guy who was a total jerk. Everyone at the party was drunk and some dude picked a fight with me and I defended myself. I end up in trouble! I missed a court hearing and got in even MORE trouble!!! Hired Alex because his ratings are good and he was pretty straight up. Alex found out the "victim" had prior convictions and a bad reputation with the prosecutors office. He talked my case over with the prosecutor. Alex gets them to reduce Assault 2 to Assault 4. He gets them to reduce the felony Bail Jumping to misdemeanor Bail Jumping. No felonies! I got some jail time, but Alex worked it again - he got the prosecutor and judge to be okay with electronic home monitoring instead of jail. Hire Alex!

I'm very happy I hired Alex to assist me in getting my Theft charges dismissed. It wasn't easy, but he did it! I'm a professional who just got a job in the banking industry. On a stupid whim, I stole clothing from a department store (don't ask me why). The employees caught me. I went to Alex because he has a great record of resolved cases and fights for his clients. I discovered all of these facts were true! Alex "humanized" me by showing the prosecutor my accomplishments. I got friends and family to write letters for me. Alex took all of this information to the prosecutor. Alex pointed to the weaknesses of the case. Through it all, he successfully negotiated me out of a felony crime of dishonesty. I won't do jail either. I thank Alex for saving my career and handling my case with grace and professionalism.

If you are looking for a lawyer who never returns your calls, never keeps you informed, and fails to negotiate for you, alex is your man. He seemed very helpful before the contract was signed but after that i heard from him twice in 8 months. I was a first time dui offender with no criminal history so to me it was important to know whats going on as id never done this before. I was kept in the dark the whole time. He showed up to court most of the time but other times had someone who also new nothing show up for me. After 8 months he finally did get my dui reduced to a neg driving but with 30 days in jail (with alternatives) and two years probation. He told me how great this was but doesn't seem great to me. When the prosecutor made the offer I asked alex to negotiate the jail time and he flat out told me no, this is the end of the road. A good lawyer is suppose to negotiate terms, not simply take the offer. Especially since I already spent a night in jail during the arrest. If he were smart he could have used that to negotiate the sentence down. To make matters worse i had asked him to get jail, etc transferred to my local court and he failed to this with the judge in court. I tried calling twice and no return calls. So now im on my own to get this taken care of with the judge. I completely understand my case was an upper level dui reduced two steps, however i paid good money and would appreciate a lawyer who would keep me informed, return calls and fight for their client.

I'm pretty happy with Alex's work. I hired him to help me on a DUI charge. It was ugly . . . I drove my car into a ditch, gave a street breath test over the 08 limit, and I wasn't cooperative with officers. Making matter worse, the prosecutor incorrectly counted a prior DUI conviction I had as within the 7 year period. I knew I had to hire someone when their plea offer was 90 days jail, no alternatives, big fines, probation, etc. I've got to work. My family depends on me. Going to jail would guartantee my termination.
Alex worked my case pretty clever. He obtained medical proof that I suffered Type 1 Diabetes. His research showed that people with Diabetes who have insulin shock experience similar symptoms of people who are drunk. Alex also got a copy of my driving record and proved my prior DUI conviction was outside of 7 years.
As a result, the prosecutor amended my DUI downward. Although I got 45 days jail, I can do this on electronic home detention, therefore saving my job. My court fines are lower. My probation will go unsupervised as soon as I complete treatment.
I'm pretty happy! Thank you, Alex!
