I couldnt be happier with Matthew Mills. He has gone out of his way to make this stressful experience as painless as possible. With only one meeting he had the whole thing filed in 48 hours. I have had many questions and all were answered within minutes of asking them. I would highly recommend using Matthew Mills not only is he extremely professional after calling many other lawyers for quotas he charges half the price and makes you feel like your case is his number one priority.

Shelley Fuller is in a word amazing! She is an excellent attorney and I highly recommend her. I had a situation in 2015 where I was accused of breaking my probation when I hadn't. Although the deck seemed stacked against me, she provided me with an excellent defense and was able to prove that I was indeed innocent. She went above and beyond to do this and I felt confident that I was getting the best representation money could buy. Shelley is professional, reliable, understanding, knowledgeable and prompt in responding to emails and phone calls. On top of this, I found her rates to be quite reasonable.

I hired Mr. Hoff to represent me on a Forgery and Theft case. Mr. Hoff got the Forgery charge dropped and I entered a plea of Guilty to the Theft charge. Sentencing was delayed for a couple of months. This all took place in Clark County. Today, Jan. 15, 2015 was the sentencing. The DA was requesting for 60 days in Jail and Mr. Hoff presented arguments as to why I should not be put in jail. The Judge was really impressed with Mr. Hoffs' arguments and granted me EHC and congratulated Mr.Hoff on an excellent job done. Mr. Hoff was always very punctual for our Court hearings. I was very impressed with Mr. Hoff and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an awesome attorney.

Working with Erin McAleer was more than satisfying. He performed the work exactly as we discussed, and delivered the documents ahead of schedule. When those documents where rejected by the registration authority (through no fault of his), he immediately (and at no cost to me) revised the documents to an acceptable state. I would not hesitate to work with Erin again.
