ticket dismissed
Once I hired Lyliane, the process was on cruise control. She contacted me with my options and handled the case to successful conclusion. Aside from initially getting the ticket, it couldn't have gone any better!

Excellent and Carring
When I was confused and in need of professional help on a bogus assault charge I called several attorney's and they wouldn't even talk to me without getting paid. When I called Lyliane Couture she made time to chat and talk about my case at no charge, I hired her to help me on my case she was super nice and understanding. She ended up getting the case dropped and I didn't have to deal with all the stress of the court on my own. I would recommend her to friends and family any day. Thanks!!! Call Her now

District Court Speeding Ticket for minor
Lyliane Courture's Office has outstanding communication, timely responses, and great service for the price. I was very pleased with the service that we received. My daughter could have lost her license until she was 18 and not been able to finish running start without legal assistance. I would definately recommend Lyliane Courture to anyone needing legal assistance.

Assault charge dropped!
I hired Mrs. Couture for an assault charge I was falsely accused of while attending a concert at the Gorge Washington. Lyliane was very responsive and nice. She was able to assure me I was taken care of and had nothing to worry about. I recommend her to anyone looking for representation.

Delivered as promised
Lyliane promised I did not have to do any work and would handle my traffic violation completely. She delivered as promised and I am completely satisfied with her work and professionalism. Thank you.

A Refreshing Approach
I became aware of this attorney through other cases she has handled for my friends. Her court demeanor as a defense attorney is second to none. I needed a will, and she referred me to another attorney, in another firm. She explained that she does not specialize in wills, but would refer me to several other attorneys, in other firms, that specialize in this field, and she felt confident would meet my needs. At age 69, I found her honesty/integrity refreshing.
