Success after 3 years of dedication.
I wanted to take some time to truly thank Mr. Monroe and his partner Alex King for their efforts in dismissing my DUI case. I have been dealing with alcoholism for the past 3 years. This case came about 2 years ago when I was still actively drinking. Mr. Monroe allowed me to talk to him briefly on the phone about his experience before inviting me to his office to discuss details with both him and Mr. King. Mr. Monroe was incredibly knowledgeable with the recovery life style and helped me to understand that I was not perfect, and slip-ups do happen. This was due to the fact that around 8 months ago, I had been arrested in another state for a similar charge. With that said, he urged me that staying in the rooms would be my only hope to a successful and happy. Through the past 2 years that this case was active, I indeed had another fall, but was grateful enough to not let that mistake keep me under. Now, having 15 months of sobriety, I recently found out from Mr. Monroe that this heard work had finally paid off. I am overjoyed to find that my DUI case was completely dismissed. This victory has helped allow me to fully understand that doing the next right thing and having honest relationships with those in my life, will allow me to continue accomplishing many more great things in my future. His team allowed me to continue with my sobriety path and know that I could completely trust in my lawyer to deal with my case. This played such a huge roll in keeping my stress levels down and allowing me to continue my career and recovery with no distractions. Mr. Monroe was able to represent ME, not just some hopeless DUI felon. I can never thank you enough to all of you for supporting me and contributing to my successes in sobriety. I will never forget everyone’s work in dismissing this case. I highly recommend anyone dealing with a first, second, or even third DUI conviction speak with Mr. Monroe and his team to understand the options that you have!

I was scared that my life was over. After hiring Mr. Monroe, things quickly changed for me. Him and his team worked tirelessly to get me the best possible outcome on my case. They were always available to answer my questions and explain my options to me. I always felt like they were on my side and worked hard for me. So thankful that I had Monroe & King as my legal team!
