I can’t let my head touch the pillow tonight without thanking my awesome attorney Bryan Stephenson for his diligence, hard work and expertise while handling my case. I was out of state and he took my case without a second guess! He only had a week to prepare for the two unfortunate misdemeanors I occurred. He was so professional and organized and answered all my questions. He was easy to get in touch with and my consequences were painless. As long as I do my do diligence my cases will be completely dismissed and expunged in 30 days. He is so understanding and the empathy he showed me was beyond my expectations. He is so trustworthy. Call him A.S.A.P if you are in need! in state or out of state; he can handle ANYTHING and you won’t be disappointed. I promise. Thanks again Mr. Stephenson.
