I am an attorney in the Tampa Bay area who practices the exact same area of law Stephen does. After a family member was arrested a charged with a DUI in Virginia Beach and hired another lawyer without me speaking to them, she was told she had no chance, no opportunity, and needed to plea . After not being satisfied or believing this prior attorney had done any work on his case, I reached out to Stephen, hired him on the spot, and within 2 weeks he was able to get her charge reduced. Amazing job.
