"I had a 85 in a 35 ticket. That is a class A misdemeanor. Chris Dionne did a great job and was able to get my case dismissed if I did some community service."

"Attorney Chris Dionne was great, very patient and gave examples of all scenarios of how my situation could play out. He never gave me false hope, he was every honest. In the end he was able to get all four of my tickets dropped, one of the tickets alone would have cost me at least $350. plus other fees. So I am really grateful for his help and would definitely recommend him."

"The Driver Defense Team has helped me greatly with my traffic court. My attorney Chris Dionne was very professional and friendly throughout the whole process of my case. I had two tickets and one was totally dismissed, for the other they gave me six months supervision with court fees. I’m very grateful to Chris, he did everything in his hand to ease my situation. Thanks a lot :)"

"Highly HIGHLY recommended! My attorney (Chris) was very knowledgeable, skilled, and communicative throughout my entire traffic court process. He made sure to call me before any court sessions to remind me of the upcoming court dates, answered any and all questions I may have had, and explained the process thoroughly to make sure I understood exactly what was going on. Even before hiring on this team, my experience was great; the office staff replied promptly to emails/messages if I had any questions, and the attorney consulted with me on the process of my case. I am very glad that I found Driver Defense Team. They definitely put me at ease during my whole court process and this was just an overall great experience."

"I walked into the office Saturday morning worried that I was going to lose my job and license for CDL. Luckily I walked in and got attended by a gentleman name Danny that is well educated and knew how to calm me down and get me quick assistant. After, I went to court for a good attorney Chris Dionne and got my ticket dismissed with no point assessed to my license. Thank you Chris, Danny and Driver Defense Team."

"This is my first review ever on yelp, and this is a must. I had an incident with a state trooper on the freeway, I was given two tickets and facing a felony charge. "Extremely stressed over the whole situation, I reached out to the Driver Defense Team. Esmeralda was the first to come to my rescue, she heard everything I had to say, and answered every single question I threw at her sparing no detail. (All this two days prior to my court date). Then came Christopher, my attorney who showed up on time for court and took over from beginning to end. The process was painless. He got my case dismissed, and I was in and out in 15 minutes. Again, I was facing a felony charge, and the whole case got dismissed. Later that day Esmeralda called me to follow up and to make sure I was ok. I can't say enough good things about DDT, hands down extremely great service and the level of care and professionalism displayed was just phenomenal. Once again I'd like to thank both Esmeralda and Christopher, incredible assets to the Driver Defense Team."
