I had an outstanding experience with this firm! I was very nervous about a traffic ticket I received, and I was called by one of the partners in the firm within 24 hours, David Bruffett. He assuaged my fears and delineated what options they had for me at an affordable rate. I was able to secure a student discount and hired them on the spot! They represented me well and saved me from having to show up in court after I already moved away from the city! They kept me informed the whole way and allowed me to submit documents electronically which I found very convenient. They ended up getting my ticket reduced significantly in terms of points on my license as well as reducing the fine about 80 percent. I am very grateful to them and would recommend their services to anyone that has a ticket based on traffic infractions.
