Very professional
I was charged in Salt Lake with a crime that was going to cost me my drivers license because of it. I was referred to William by a friend of mine who told me that William would take good care of me. I am so thankful that I did because William was absolutely amazing. He was always available and answered all of my questions really fast. Sometimes I didn't want to ask a questen and sound dumb, but he always talked to instead of down to me and didn't make me feel dumb. William was great at explaining everything so that I could understand it. I was able to keep my license and my job thanks to William. I have already referred another client to him and if anyone asks I will definitely tell them to contact William.

Legal Answers
13 Questions Answered
Q. How long after receiving a traffic ticket does an officer have to report it ?
A: They don't have a specific time that they must report it. If they fail to do so within a certain period it could result in an issue with the statute of limitations. If the ticket was just a regular infraction they have one year to bring charges (submit the ticket, or have the prosecutor file the charges for the ticket).
Q. My husband has been accused of inappropriate behavior with a very close friends 17 year old daughter.
A: Do not speak to law enforcement. You need to contact an attorney immediately. These are extremely serious allegations.
Q. How much to retain a lawyer for a third degree theft charge
A: That depends on the lawyer. You should contact a lawyer directly. Most of us will do free consultations.
