“Ms. Wagenaar was very informative, proactive throughout my case and quick to respond if I had any questions. She really took the stress out of the DUI process. I really appreciated how friendly and patient she was, and how comfortable she made me feel, when she explained details in my case that I didn’t fully understand. I highly recommend her and she will make sure to do all that she can, to give you the best possible outcome.” – N.W.
