Bill represented me for DWI & sent other attorneys, not even from his firm, in his place to get a continuance on numerous court days. The first time he showed up in court to ask for a continuance himself, he didn't even have a copy of the police report for my case (this was months later). The day my case was finally presented, he had no clue about my side of the story, despite the fact that we had met at his office & discussed it on several occasions. He actually seemed to ""side with"" the officer who charged me with the offense. The officer falsified statements in the police report, but Bill did nothing to refute these statements. In fact, Bill said the officer seemed like a ""trustworthy"" guy & why would he lie about certain things?? Maybe because he wanted to nail my case? I feel like I completely wasted my money on Bill, because all he ended up doing is recommend that I plead guilty to the offense. I don't feel like he spent anytime actually reviewing my case during all the time we were waiting for the final court date. He was not prepared for me to plead guilty that day & obtain limited driving privileges. He wanted me to call someone to pick me up from the courthouse after my license was surrendered then get a ride to his office the next day to pick up the paperwork, etc. After the fact, when I needed his help/advice on driver's license questions he simply did not respond to my emails and phone calls. I could go on & on, but in short, I could have done the exact same thing he did if I had represented myself. Don't waste your money hiring Bill.
