Divorce

I am from NJ and get pulled over for wreckless driving due to speed, which is apparently a criminal offense. I was so upset because I almost never speed. I had not gotten a ticket in 20 years! My aunt had stage four cancer and almost died the night before, I was trying to bring my mother and cousin to see her. I called several attorneys in the area, they all told me it was extremely unlikely the judge would reduce the charge because he never does. She was quite honest and told me the same thing. I hired her because the others were telling me to take classes or pay a bunch of money to test my odometer. I have a new higher end car so I was pretty sure that wouldn't work. She called me yesterday and told me that she was able to get the charge reduced to a speeding ticket with a reasonable fine! I was so happy I choose her. Her office staff was also super helpful and friendly. Highly recommend!

5 star rating. Very friendly and detailed oriented. Both Mrs. Shannon and Melissa (paralegal) were very helpful. Able to get a "reckless driving charge" for doing 79/55, to a improper driving fine. With a reasonable fine amount also. They are very prompt and easy to reach. Excellent customer service as well.
