DUI Case

A Grateful Client

“Joe Suhre is the best attorney you will find to represent you. Along with having a stellar reputation in the legal community, I can also speak from personal experience that Joe is a highly skilled litigator and secured me Not-Guilty decisions on 2 separate DUI charges! Unfortunately, I was pulled over pending my first DUI charge, and charged with a second DUI. Joe navigated every legal issue involved and coached me through the process so that I could monitor the situation as it unfolded.”
