After being displeased with another firm, I went for a consultation with Mr. Routsis. Initially, I met with Mr. Routsis’s Legal Secretary Josie who was very welcoming and informative from the get go. I was working in the defense of a DUI and due to being in the U.S on a working Visa I potentially had a lot to lose pending the outcome. I immediately felt at ease and that there may be some hope.

Mr. Routsis was very honest from the start and we both knew the chips were stacked against me.
During the consultation, Mr. Routsis identified several aspects of my case that not been explored by my previous firm. I knew he would leave no stone unturned while representing me so I was delighted he took the case.
Mr. Routsis’s Legal Secretary’s Josie and Brenda were great to work with also. Throughout the months I reached out to them with several questions regarding my case and I would always receive a prompt, confirming response regardless of their workload.

On the day of the trial, Mr. Routsis was calm, cool and collected.
His execution inside the court room was impeccable. It was evident to me as the client, that Mr. Routsis and his legal team put sufficient time and energy into researching my case, as his delivery of the facts and knowledge regarding the legalities of my case had the prosecution in a spin. Due to all the flaws highlighted by Mr. Routsis, The Judge literally had no option but to dismiss my case!!!

I will be forever grateful to Mr. Routsis and his whole team for their hard work throughout the last few months.
I would highly recommend using the Routsis Hardy-Cooper Law Firm for representation regardless of the case. I would rate more than five stars if this would let me! A+++++

Once again, Thank you John!
