Experienced criminal defense attorney
When I was charged with Driving Under the Influence, everyone told me that I was going to jail and there was no reason to hire an attorney. When I met with Doug Schwab, he was honest with me about what to expect and I ended up hiring him to represent me. After a thorough investigation, he was able to get my DUI charge reduced to reckless driving because of issues with the stop, and I didn't end up serving any jail time! He was very professional and I would call him again in a heartbeat if I ever got in trouble again!

very good attorney
I retained Mr. Schwab when I was recently charged with DUI Drugs. He was very attentive and aggressive, and was always available when I had a question or needed advice. Mr. Schwab kept me informed throughout the process and I would recommend his services to anyone charged with DUI or a drug-related crime. He is the very best!
