Before the court dates even began, I only acquired a lawyer from Chuck Bretz & Associates because it has been my parent’s trusted attorney’s office and I was looking to lessen my charges. As the dates had gone by, [my attorney] began to show me that there was much more available for me in this case. Before I knew it and only the third date [my attorney] was able to find a way for all of my charges to be dropped as a whole. I’ve honestly never experienced an attorney as dedicated to his job; it seemed as if he thought of every angle he possibly could in order to make this happen for me and in turn it truly has changed my life.
