I highly recommend Miranda Law Offices.
On December 20th, 2018 I was going to the casino down in Hammond Indiana and was passing the skyway through Illinois. I never saw the speed limit marker so I was going 75 MPH when I saw red and blue lights behind me. I got pulled over and the cop told me that the speed limit was 45 MPH so I was definitely getting a misdemeanor in the state of Illinois. I also have a CDL class A so you can imagine how scared to death I felt. As soon as the ticket was handed to me I contacted Miranda Law Office and he made me feel relief right away. He told me not to worry that he was going to take care of everything. On January 11th, 2019 we went to court and my misdemeanor was moved down to a non-moving violation. I couldn’t be happier! Thanks again to Miranda law office for all his help.
Amazing attorney and very reliable! Mr. Miranda is extremely knowledgeable in criminal law and passionately advocates for his clients. I definitely recommend him.
