  • Consulted with Doug on a speeding ticket which I really didn't deserve, in my opinion...
    Doug is great! He is professional, fair and follows through. He took care of my case quickly and thoroughly. I was at ease throughout the entire process. My case was dismissed, no points, no traffic school and his fee was very reasonable!
  • I received a ticket for a stop sign violation. I am a careful driver and had a perfect driving record until now. I hired Douglas Leifert and was thrilled that he got my case dismissed - no points, no traffic school, no fines. Would definitely hire again!
