Book Strategy Session

"Rachel won my case with the DMV. Keeping me fully informed and explaining everything in regular terms I could understand from day one. But I still had the criminal court case in BK looming, and I could not have been more nervous. However, once I got there and saw her relationships and how she carried herself in the courtroom, I felt more confident and like I made a good choice. I went back a few times with Rachel trying to get me a good deal and negotiating w them and them pushing the date etc etc. End of story, I got All Charges Dropped and walked away with a minor moving violation. I COULD NOT BE MORE THRILLED!!!! I lived months so nervous about the whole thing and now everday I think of it and cannot believe that its all over, and that Rachel worked the magic she did and got me what she got me. If you have a DWI or Anything, do not hesitate and hire Rachel Kugel! She is confident, knows her stuff, and will go to the end fighting for you"
