Customer Reviews:

Lance Fletcher is an extremely knowledge, capable, and caring lawyer. He provided great representation in my case and fought extraordinarily hard on my behalf to get my charge dismissed in court. Throughout the entire process Lance was always very responsive and straightforward about all available options and possible outcomes. I would highly recommend Lance Fletcher to anyone seeking a lawyer that provides a great service to his clients at a reasonably affordable price.

I was nervous and anxious when I first received my summons. 10-133(c) is a possession of a knife, I was worried this will taint my record and scared of the outcome. After trying contacting multiple defense attorneys without a response back I was surprised to have gotten a call back from Mr. Fletcher. During our consultation he remained calm and professional keeping me at ease while explaining what he would do and answering any concerns. My result was better than I hoped for, without any criminal charges Mr. Fletcher really is a miracle worker. He is someone who honestly cares about the law and you as his client. Hiring Mr. Fletcher I not only got a fantastic attorney, I also got peace of mind when I was worried about my situation.
Lance and his team helped me with a misdemeanor which I completely neglected. Years after my arrest, I had a warrant out for my arrest because I failed to attend a class. I also relocated so traveling all the way to NY was a no go.

I called Lance’s office, he listen to my narrative into detail and he got right to work.

I can proudly say he quickly got the warrant thrown out, my charge reduced and my case expunged.

The most fascinating part of my case was that, I was in the process of filing for my permanent residence and thanks to this amazing lawyer, I was able to obtain it with no problems at all.

He understands the system, the laws and he is always there for you. I felt like a superstar because he and his team were always attentive to my needs and they worked round the clock and fast.

I don’t know what I’d do without his incredible experience. I’ll definitely be calling him in the near future if I ever need a lawyer and I’d recommend you trust him with your case. He gets the work done!

Thank you Lance Fletcher!
