Travis R. Client Review

Will Proetta represented me in a simple assault case earlier this year.  I talked to a few other lawyers before calling Will, but his knowledge of the law and his ability to rattle off excellent defense strategies made his law firm the very clear choice.  I had no doubt that I was putting my future in the hands of someone who really knew what he was talking about

I’m a fairly paranoid person, and I called Will frequently to discuss my matter.  He always listened to my ramblings with open ears, and he was very understanding of the situation that I was in.  It was clear that he actually cared about the outcome of my case, I wasn’t just another paycheck.

On the day of my preliminary hearing, Will walked into the prosecutors office and within ten minutes, my case was dismissed.  I have no idea what was discussed behind the closed doors, but apparently Will made it clear that there was no case against me, and the prosecutor really had no choice but to agree.  I had no idea that it could be so simple, but at least I understood why Will was so confident on the phone when we discussed my charges.

I really appreciate Will as a person and a lawyer, and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone with a serious legal matter on his or her hands.  Additionally, I would also tell whomever is hiring Will to take a deep breath and relax.  If there is a way to beat your case, Will is going to know about it, and he’s not afraid to put in the work that it takes to have your charges dismissed.

Debra B. Lawyer Testimonial

Will is definitely a breath of fresh air when it comes to defense attorneys. He came to our rescue at a time of need and is the only defense attorney we would ever recommend or use. Any issues you have had to deal with in past situations with attorneys will never exist with Will. His professionalism, knowledge, and understanding of the legal system make your bumpy roller coaster ride as smooth as it can be under the circumstances. Will doesn’t pass you off to an assistant or make you feel as if he is too busy, he gives his clients his personal attention. When we were unable to reach Will, which was rare, he would return our calls, texts, and emails very promptly. Will always showed us respect, which is important for us personally to feel we can trust our attorney. With Will we always knew we had someone working hard to obtain the most positive outcome that would satisfy us. I highly recommend Will to always be on your side in the court room.

Zach D. Client Review

Will was absolutely fantastic. I had some very serious charges in Jersey City that were being extradited from North Carolina. Will had to jump through quite a few hoops just to get everything straightened out in NC, and that’s exactly what he did. He handled everything for me in a professional manner, and I walked away with a clean record. He was very attentive to any of my questions or queries, as well as his law office. Five star service!

Tina P. Attorney Review

Hi Will,

I wanted to write you to express my gratitude for all your help. When I first received my DUI it was probably the worst feeling of my life. Aside from the emotional part of it the thought of losing my license and the fines were going to sink me. I didn’t have any idea what to do. My friends and coworkers didn’t make the situation any better. All I kept hearing was “7 months… No matter what 7 months. With a lawyer or without a lawyer 7 months”. It was very discouraging. I remember our first court date when you told me “Trust me… This is what I do. It’s not over yet.” That’s exactly what I did. I just told myself that I had to trust you. Not only did you come through 100% you made me feel like I was in good hands. I will always have you in my contact list just in case.

Thank you so much!

For anyone who is thinking about using your services for any type of legal situation here’s what I have to say to them. Please share my story:

I was pulled over for a DUI on June 20th, 2013. I received four (4) tickets that night, one ticket for making an improper left hand turn, one ticket for a DUI with a school zone ticket and one ticket for no insurance. I was facing 1 to 2 years loss of license plus fines and surcharges and points and potentially my insurance dropping me and just a mess. The final day in court Will not only got the School zone dismissed (this would have doubled my loss of license) he got my loss of license reduced to 3 months! From 1 to 2 years to 3 months! He also got my reading suppressed. The only ticket I got points for was the illegal left turn. I hugged him in the court room. Couldn’t believe it. When I spoke to ALL the people that told me I was basically “screwed” they couldn’t believe it either. Not only is Will Proetta great at what he does he is confident, professional and an awesome guy.

Highly recommend!
