Mr. Stanton represented my son on a criminal charge. We live out of state and had no knowledge of attorneys in the state where the charge was filed. The Thumbtact website helps us to hire Mr. Stanton. He always answered my phone calls promptly. I did not meet him until the hearing. We were very satisfied with his hard efforts and better than expected results.

I found Mr. Arnkoff on Thumbtack because I was looking for a criminal defense lawyer to give me a FREE consoltation and second opinion on what another lawyer had advised me. I did not even think for a minute that I would end up with an actual private lawyer (especially someone good) . I thought I would just get a FREE consolt and that I would have to tough it out with the federal public defender because I did not have the money to hire a private lawyer. I placed my inquiry on thumbtack late at night around 11:00pm. The next morning, when I woke up for work at 6:00 am I already had a response from Mr. Arnkoff asking for more information on my situation. I was really surprised that a lawyer responded to me in less than 8 hours. So I replied to him and got up and got ready for work. By the time I arrived at work at 7:30am Mr. Arnkoff had replied to my reply and we decided to set up a phone consolt because I worked late that day. He said he was going to call me at 12:30pm during my lunch break and he did, he called right at the time he said he would call. He spent almost an entire hour with me on the phone and he let me talk and explain everything. He asked me lots of questions and answered tons of questions I had. He explained everything to me in great detail and made sure I understood what he was saying. He offered to go and meet with my loved one in jail and explain everything to him so that he would have peace of mind while being incarcerated. He went the very next morning and met my loved one and explained everything to him and answered his questions. I was surprised that he went to go see my loved one in jail BEFORE getting paid to do it. As I said earlier I did not think I would end up having a private attorney because I did not think I could afford one but I ended up hiring Mr. Arnkoff because he was willing to work with me in my situation. Mr. Arnkoff calls me on a regular basis and gives me detailed information and keeps me in the loop with my loved ones case. He is a very easy going man, he is very easy to talk to and very professional. He is very very knowledgeable and knows pretty much everyone in federal court and knows a lot of investigators and public defenders. He has a great network and he always always always calls me back. He is very reasonable and kind and down to earth. My loved ones case is not over and we still have a long way to go but it is such a big weight off my shoulders to have Mr. Arnkoff handling everything for me and being my loved ones voice and keeping me informed on what is going on and what things I can expect. He is a very straight forward person and does not tell you things to get your hopes up and then disappoint you. He seems to go out of his way to utilize his own resources and network of people that he knows to get things moving along. I highly recommend Mr. Arnkoff. He listens, answers questions and stays in contact with you. I have never once had to speak to an associate or anything. It is always him who calls me back.

I was very embarrassed about needing to hire a lawyer for my case. I am not a criminal by any means and was being treated like one by the person(s) charging me. Mr. Walker talked to me in a professional, respectful manner and made me feel less like a criminal and more like a person. I would hire him again and again if I needed to, he was always on time for every meeting and answered every phone call and email. He was from a different county than where I was being charged and had no trouble showing up to court and being by my side. I highly recommend this man to be your lawyer if for any unfortunate reason you find yourself in a compromising situation.

Mr. Hastings made me feel like I was his only client though I knew that wasn't the case. As a first time offender when I got booked for a DUI I felt beyond awful, like my whole world was crumbling. Thankfully to Mr. Hastings positive and reassuring attitude I got out of my funk pretty quickly. This is an attorney that has the analytical skills needed while also being an absolute people person. He checked in with me every week, really made me feel heard when I spoke, kept me well informed, was always available and most of all got me the BEST results! I honestly feel like he was looking out for me... Well at the risk of sounding like a paid promotion I'll stop now. lol I hope to never need a criminal defense attorney again but if I do I will most definitely be calling him!

Fantastic Lawyer. I got charged with a DUI Second. I went to court on the first court date without a lawyer and was offered 45 days in jail. I hired Russell and he got to work reviewing the evidence and drafting a motion to suppress based on an illegal stop. He negotiated a plea where I did a weekend in jail and was done. Thanks Russell.

    I was falsely arrested and prosecuted by a local vet who was angry with me for filing vet board complaint against her. The whole ordeal was very stressful, since there was no crime in the first place. Four months after my arrest, I had my preliminary hearing where Mr Ridings questioned this woman and proved her to be a liar. All charges were dropped, at this point, which is unheard of in a preliminary hearing. Thanks to David Ridings for doing his best to give me my life back! If you need a great criminal attorney, talk to David Ridings! This could have gone on for years before I had a chance to prove my innocence, he made sure that didn't happen!
