Client Reviews

Seth stands by his work and gets results

From the first phone conversation with Seth in regard to my ticket for allegedly operating an electronic device I knew I had the right attorney. He assured me I had the best in the area and he was proven right when my ticket was dismissed by the judge. The process to collect as much positive information from a client like myself to go to bat for me has proven that he is an experienced professional and willing to go the distance for his clients. I couldn't be happier.

Very Quick and Easy!

I called Mr. Azria due to a speeding ticket in another county. He gave me a price quote upfront and within a few days had gotten my 4 point offense reduced to a non-moving violation. All in all I only had to email him the ticket information and pay him a very reasonable fee(which I was able to do online). He did the rest, very convenient. He was very quick to respond to me and readily available if needed. Mr Azria also contacted me with updates via both email and regular mail. I am very satisfied with his services and will use him if needed in the future.
