Firearms Restoration
Working with Mr.Gojack was a pleasure. My case had many unforseen difficulties and he plowed right through all of them. He constantly stayed in contact with me and promptly answered any questions I had. I could have asked for nothing more from this experience.

Grateful!!
I couldn't be more grateful for the exceptional service provided by Dino Gojak. He successfully vacated my past charges, giving me a fresh start. Dino was incredibly professional, consistently providing updates throughout the process, and making everything so easy to understand. His dedication and expertise were evident every step of the way. I highly recommend Dino for anyone in need of a top-notch lawyer. Thank you, Dino, for your outstanding work and for giving me a clean slate!

Working with Dino was so easy. He took care of everything for me and all I had to do was sign some forms. He was very professional and a kind man. I didn’t even have to go to court he took care of that for me. My charge had been following me around for about 18 years and because of him I know have a freedom that I have been longing for for so long. I would recommend him to anyone.

Best Lawyer Ever
Extremely helpful, efficient, and worth the money. If you need a defense attorney this is the one to hire! Dino was very attentive, thorough in explanation, and checked in with me regularly. He was very professional with lots of experience and couldn’t have gotten me a better plea deal. Highly recommend!

Professional and easy to work with
Before any money was sent to restore my weapon, rights he first checked to see if I was eligible first for free. after finding out I was, it was minimal amount of paperwork one email and couple weeks waiting. I was able to get my weapons rights back. He is very easy to work with and very professional. I would recommend him to anyone.

Hired to restore gun rights
I hired Deno to restore my gun rights. Not only did he get them back but he did it in the estimated time frame and always kept me informed if what was going on. I highly recommend him. Thank you so much Deno

Quick and easy!
They made everything very straight forward and easy for me, there was no stress for me and that was exactly what I needed. Communication was clear and respectful from beginning to end, the process was much faster than I expected. I could not be happier and would recommend him to anyone else looking for help!

This is the representation you need!
Before I hired Dino as my counsel in a court case, I was overwhelmed and stressed out for all the unknowns that come with such a situation. After our consultation, he helped ease all my worries and was extremely thorough and thoughtful and made sure I was updated and at ease throughout the entire process. Thanks to all his hard work, the case was eventually dismissed. I couldn't recommend him any higher.

the very best!!
Dino is the best civil law attorney I have ever worked with. From our first meeting, he explained everything in terms I could easily understand and was always very responsive when I had questions outside of our meetings. If anyone is looking for a knowledgeable attorney at a great price, then go to Dino

WOW!
Mr Gojak looks professional, clean and respectable, is a courteous and kind man. He was thorough in answering all of my questions (and patient when I’d ask the same questions twice). He was obviously set on making sure I understood what what happening, what he was doing, every step of the way. When I say “what he was doing” is because I didn’t have to do anything but sign papers! He even explained it as optional if I go to my court date. He detailed the benefits of going vs not going. Mr Gojak treated me with dignity and respect. I could tell he really cared about getting a favorable outcome for me, for my life and my potential for success in my future endeavors. He never looked down on me, acted superior or intimidating in anyway. He’s very personable and used every day language to explain very dry materials. I strongly recommend Mr Gojak! I will definitely hire him again for future expungement cases.

He did what others said they couldn’t!
Thank you Dino for your honesty and determination to truly represent my family. What you did for us today in court was something touted by other attorneys as impossible. You are a man of many possibilities. Your fees are a fraction of what others charge their clients. Thank you again. I recommend your services to the world!!!

Relationship: Co-worker
"Dino and I developed a strong colleague relationship before becoming coworkers. Before working as coworkers, I became familiar with how passionate Dino is about his clients. Dino is a highly attentive lawyer who will fight for your case until the very end. After becoming coworkers with Dino I came to truly admire and respect how he holds himself in court, in client meetings, and with other colleagues. If you want someone to think outside of the box and fight tooth and nail, I would highly suggest Dino."
