“John was a great help to me and my family during the whole process we went through. He was sensitive and empathetic to our situation. He kept us informed every step of process and helped us understand the expectations set forth by the courts. If we had any questions, and left a message, he always would get back to us in a timely manner. I felt confident and sure of our case and situation at all times.”
“I highly recommend John Razumich to represent you in your time of need! He is trustworthy, responsive, knowledgeable, and kept me informed at all times. His professionalism is high level and always made me feel, as if i was his only client. I never once felt like i could not get in contact with him. John was either readily available, or was able to return my phone calls in 24 hours. He is a lawyer who cares about his clients more than about the business. I’m grateful for him helping get my life back in order.”
“Mr. Razumich has been a really good lawyer to work with. His rates were reasonable, he was easy to contact if I needed help or had any questions, I always got a quick response from him, and I am also really grateful that either he or someone from his office went with me to every court appearance. I had thought of going through my case without a lawyer and I am so glad I didn’t. Thanks to Mr. Razumich, I was able to have a good end to my case. I would recommend anyone in need of a lawyer to contact him.”
Understanding the Criminal Justice System
DUIs are the most commonly committed crime in America today. People who would otherwise never come into contact with the legal system can find themselves dealing with serious legal issues from having one drink too many. Good people can sometimes make bad decisions, and we believe that one moment in time shouldn’t define who you are.
Many lawyers who ask you to hire them at this time will advocate quick, “damage control” plea agreements designed to minimize the impact that a DUI has on your daily life. These plea agreements will certainly reduce your risk of jail time and might keep your license suspension to a minimum, but they also result in permanent criminal convictions that may cause you consequences in the future that you haven’t considered. Worse, they dispose of your case without taking time to examine the potential defenses that might be available to you.
Since 2006, I’ve helped thousands of people, just like you, to understand and defend themselves against DUI charges. Nationwide, the costs of a DUI conviction can easily exceed $10,000. In addition to court costs, you have to worry about probation costs, service provider costs for alcohol abuse evaluations, the costs of random drug testing, increased insurance costs from having a DUI conviction, possible suspensions for being a Habitual Traffic Violator, possible criminal penalties for being a Habitual Vehicular Substance Offender, and possible employment penalties if you need to drive for work. I can help you keep these penalties to a minimum, and maybe even eliminate some of them all together.
