Client Testimonial

 
Howard Long listened to my situation regarding a traffic violation and immediately engaged with me in potential possibilities for having the violation dismissed or reduced. Unlike other law firms that solicited my business, he did not immediately jump to scare tactics involving projected increases in my automobile insurance premiums. He was truly sympathetic to my situation (a "rolling stop" at a stop sign in Davidson while driving a truck for a local charity organization) and expressed confidence that the district attorney's office would share his viewpoint. He sought all the facts and the mitigating circumstances and then shared his strategy for seeking a dismissal. After a couple of runs at the district attorney's office he was successful in having the violation dismissed. All of this was done over the phone and through scanned documents. I never had to go to his office, nor did I have to appear in court.
 
Howard was pleasant to deal with at all times. His fee was about 75% of what the ticket and the court costs would have been if I'd simply given up and accepted the violation. However, that savings pales in comparison to the additional automobile insurance costs I would have had to pay. Don't let a police officer having a bad day and choosing to take it out on you cost you a couple of thousand dollars.
