Outstanding service provided by J. Randell Stevens
I'm am not the type of person to leave reviews but I sure do count on them, I guess I'm selfish in that sense. I'd like to give back the same way J. Randell Stevens helped me. Today I was facing a traffic citation which I did not commit. It was the Police Officers word against mine. Long story short, I hired Gioffredi and Associate and J. Randell Stevens was appointed to my case. He arrived in court prepared and ready to fight my case. Because of him my case was dismissed. I can't thank him enough. Fees were low, response was great, and I could tell this is a lawyer I can trust. THANKS Mr. Stevens!!

I keep them handy in my rolodex
I have been using Gioffredi and Associates for many years. Mr. Stevens has expeditiously assisted in dismissing citations. His work and that of the firm is always helpful, reliable and professional.

Would absolutly hire again.
We received a citation in a city we were passing thru. Mr. Stevens was a referral and we are very pleased with his services. We worried that we would have to go back and show up to court and that would be an added expense, but Mr. Stevens took care of everything and kept us informed of the situation and our options.

Client Review of J. Randell Stevens
I retained Randell about a speeding ticket. I am 73 years old and attempt to drive carefully. However, due to circumstances I didn't understand, I was ticketed for doing 51 in a 40 mile an hour zone. Randell's firm gave me prompt service, expert advice and a successful conclusion in court. He is a top flight gentleman as well as very professional lawyer. I highly recommend him and his staff.

Great Lawyer!
Mr. Stevens is a very good attorney. He took care of my case and I was at court house only 1 hour! He is very kind and treated me with respect. I highly recommend Mr. Stevens and the firm of Gioffredi and Associates!
Posted by Chasity | July 19, 2011
Great Law Firm .... My tickets resolved.
I received a notice of two tickets in 2007 for tickets that I received in 1999. Apparently I forgot to take care of these, Gioffredi & Associates handled these for me. They were cheaper than paying the fees and these are not on my record! The office is very friendly!
Posted by James | July 12, 2011
Great law firm!
I have used Gioffredi and Assoc. many times for tickets and they have all been excellent. Mr. Stevens office kept me informed of everything and took care of my situation very quickly. I would highly recommend him! I will use them again.

Traffic Citation
From the first person I spoke to on the phone at Giofffredi and Associates to Attorney J. Randell Stevens who resolved my case, everyone made my legal experience fantastic. Tresa Gomez was my initial contact and she explained procedures so clearly I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. J. Randell Stevens got my case dismissed and I am so grateful. He is professional, kind, and caring. Highly recommended!

Very Professional
His office staff is excellent at getting you prepared with the proper documents and in court at the proper time. Case was dismissed and he informed me himself, then sent a follow up letter.
Posted by George | July 5, 2011
Great experience
Very efficient and I barely had to do a thing. Mr. Stevens got both of my cases dismissed, with no record going on my license. The Gioffredi grup is fabulous.

Randall Stevens Rocks!!
My 18 year old son got a speeding ticket in April '11 in Collin County for going a ridiculous 103 MPH on George Bush (70 MPH). We hired J. Randall Stevens at a cost of $65 plus $150 due to the severity of the ticket, and J. Randall got the case dismissed! I am still in shock that this ticket was dismissed. The fines and insurance premium hikes would have been well over $1,000!! I have never hired an attorney for a speeding ticket in my life (I am 51) and I would recommend Randall Stevens to anyone!

Responsive & Trustworthy (AWSOME!!!)
my attorney didnt only save me hundreds on my fines, he gave me peace of mind!!! He was honest, professional, & worked fast!!! I can drive now without worries!!!!!
Posted by Jeff | June 18, 2011
The Best Attorney I have ever Had!!!
Everytime i get a traffic ticket I call Mr. Stevens Office. I have yet to ever have one ticket show up on my record. It is very important that i don't have anything show up on my driving record, I have a C.D.L. I gurantee that if you need an Attorney Mr. Stevens is the one. I promise you wil love the outcome when it is all over. I can't say thank you enough to Mr. Stevens and all of the Staff at his office.

Excellent
It has been over 20 years since I needed the assistance of an attorney. I asked another law professional who should I retain regardng my ticket. Without any hesitation the response was "Call Randy Stevens (J.Randell Stevens)!" Mr.Stevens provided excellent representation for my case. Not only was he great but also the administrative staff kept me informed on everything concerning my case and they were always polite and just a joy to work with

Undefeated
I have been using Gioffredi & Associates now for over 10 years and Mr. Stevens has helped me in the majority of the past cases as well as the current one and really knows the ins & outs of the system because he has never failed.
