Great lawyer, great individual

Ralph persevered relentlessly through my difficult DWI case to bring it to a very favorable outcome. The case spanned over 7 months with multiple court dates and he was with me all the way through. He is extremely approachable and responsive as well as very knowledgeable and I would recommend him to anyone out there.

Multiple times working with David and Seth

Without being too specific regarding my actual cases I'd like to tell anyone out there that David and Seth are both amazing lawyers who care about their clients. They have both gone to bat for myself and my now wife...multiple times, with more than expected results each and every time. Again, without being too open about matters, we all make mistakes, when I was younger I had the unfortunate experience of receiving a DWI, David handled my case, in the end, though a hefty fine, which you would expect, it was dismissed, the court at that time didn't even know how to handle it because it had never been done before. Again, unfortunate, an assault charge due to a bar fight involving the woman who is now my wife, Seth handled this and the result was an ACD. I have also referred someone close to David due to them receiving a DWI...a third DWI, involving an accident, again David got results that were outstanding. Fast-forwarding many years, David has still made himself available to me when called on. I have recently asked for a personal letter to a judge regarding a character reference and again, David has pulled through, made himself available and assisted me. I can't say more about David and Seth, they're two very well known, very smart, very capable lawyers who have helped me through some rather dark times, sometimes I wonder how I don't have a record, it's because of these two guys. Would never recommend anyone else.

Unbelievable Criminal Defense

Ralph Habib gave me an opportunity to lead a normal life. Through my own foolish life choices, I was facing multiple possession related felonies, a possible firearm charge, and a possible federal indictment. In the beginning, I was looking at having long term jail time. He accomplished the unbelievable, not only did I not have to go to jail but I walked away without even having probation. I had my charges reduced drastically and I am now fulfilling a conditional discharge. Anyone who wants their life back, needs to call this man. Thank you Ralph Habib, for giving me a second chance.

The Ultimate Lawyer

Why do we need lawyers? Somewhere we made a bad choice! I got my self in a bad situation facing felonies charges and prison time. I knew the only person to call was Ralph Habib. Ralph had handled traffic tickets in the past and always delivered. This was no traffic ticket. My first concern was being taken away from my 8 year old son. When we met, I expressed my concern. to Ralph. He reassured me that it was his problem now to worry about. He stated with extreme confidence " I will get you the best outcome possible." I am here today to tell you that I have no criminal charges from this matter. Ralph made sure that I was given a second chance to live my life. I am very grateful our paths crossed. The future is bright for my son and I. So, if you get yourself in a bad situation and feel like your buried in avalanche of charges. Take the Fear out of the situation and call Ralph Habib. Thank you again Ralph. Take care and God Bless.
