The Roger Priest experience
With my first time getting into any trouble Roger was the right fit in being patient and informative. He hsd to deal with my million questions and repeat questions. He kept a calm sbout him and somehow magically was able to get my case dismissed on more than 2 charges. He was even able to get my money back on an infraction for 550 dollars. Roger Priest is the man.

best of the best
Roger is very friendly and professional. I'm very pleased with his knowledge and understanding of the law. I personally believe he actually cares about his clients and that is very big for me. i'm currently involved in a cps custody case and on track to get my daughter back. He has been instrumental in reuniting me with my pride and joy.
