"The best in business! I had a speeding ticket that would’ve ended my CDL career. Searching YouTube for answers I came across DDT Law Group video.. I was sold instantly after watching it… I paid the attorney fee (very responsible) and relaxed, knowing this is what they specialize in.. Long story short, I was in route delivering a load when I got the call saying that the ticket has been reduced……. If you’re ever in need don’t hesitate to call DDT…… The Best!!"
