Client Reviews From Assault and Battery with a Deadly Weapon Trials

"I would have been in prison if it wasn't for Brian and Ciera.  I have never had an attorney fight for me like they did."  T.W.

"They know the law, and they aren't afraid of hearings or trial.  They got me a very good offer, but I turned it down and said i wanted to go to trial.  They didn't argue with me like my last attorney.  Ciera and Brian simply explained the risks and when i told them i was sure about going to trial, they went ahead and fought harder than any attorneys I have ever seen.  The end result was a not Guilty!"  D.T.
