What clients say

  • "Excellent, Down to Earth Lawyer"

    I was charged with a DUI in October of 2016. When I reached out to David, he called me within 24 hours. He went over the process, gave me his preliminary opinion of my case, and answered any questions I had. This was even before I hired him! After hiring David, he took care of everything leading up to the court date, kept me updated with any developments, and always answered any questions I had early the next morning through email. We met once to go over evidence and decide how to proceed ( go to trial, or not). At the courthouse, David had another case before mine, and it went long, overlapping with my scheduled time. He expertly juggled both cases until the first one was resolve. He thought on his feet, constantly monitored the many facets of my case, and reacted quickly when they changed. He looked comfortable in the courtroom and even changed tactics mid-trial to my benefit. My case ended up being dismissed.

  • "Best representation ever!"

    I consulted with Mr. Dischley about my case and just a few minutes into our conversation i immediately decided to go with his representation. Through out the whole wait period of my case he kept me informed on what was going on with my case. He demonstrated a great deal of dedication towards my case and myself. When my court date arrived he showed a lot of care and kept going back and forth with the prosecutor to work out the best deal he could get. Sure enough i was not disappointed with the outcome but rather extremely happy. One of my best choices i made in my life for a while. So if anyone is ever looking for someone amazing for legal representation, look no further David Dischey is your man!

  • "Best in the area"

    I was looking at some hefty jailtime and felony charge I stressed several time how important it was that it not intervene with my career and not going to jail he made sure that did not happen. I am very thankful that he was able to reduce my charge to misdemeanor. It was a small court in a rural area where I felt I didn't have much of a chance but thankfully with David's help I was able to come out with less then I was expecting. He is very professional and to the point he does not sugarcoat your situations he will be very honest on what's to come but do everything he can to keep you calm and assure you of what he thinks he can accomplish. I am currently dealing with him on another situation to help gain money taken from me. Even though the case is over he has still awsnered questions and been quick to respond he is a great attorney. I couldn't ask for anymore and he was quick to make sure after the case that I was satisfied with my outcome he genuinely seemed to care about what my feelings were after it was all over. He deserves 5 starts if I could rate higher I would. Thanks again for all your help David! Also would like to note when I consulted with David I had already seen previous lawyers and paid quite large sum of money with no real answers to my case David gave me alot of insight in what was to come free of charge this a really stand up attorney not asking for consultation fees but providing me with real answers with the amount of stress on my shoulders! I say hire him dont look any further.

  • "Criminal Representation"

    Excellent attorney. Had my case and all charges dismissed.

  • "Very Grateful"

    David was recommended to me by a colleague for a charge that was completely ridiculous. He was very helpful in explaining the process and what I needed to do and what information to provide. He was very reassuring. The charge was dismissed and he assisted me with the expungement process to have the charge removed from my record.
