I really like Mrs. Di Rezze. A friend told me about her, and I was a bit skeptical at first, but I’m really glad I went through with her representation. Boy did she represent me well! Word on the street is she’s a great DUI lawyer, but I didn’t really know how great until I had her represent my for my first DUI charge :/ After seeing her defense, I might as well take some shots off my dashboard on 75 best lawyer in the state

My case has just started but I've days and many hours looking for the right attorney that I cold actually afford most lawyers wanted the majority of the money up front and paid off within 30 days. Mr.Quinn was able to work with me with what I was able to pay and gave me a reasonable price and time to pay off my balance. He has always responded promptly to any question I've asked and after meeting him I have faith that he will help me get out of some serious charges. I will post another review the my case is over.
