Amazing life saver

This man is my savior. He got my aggravated DWI and traffic violation charges dismissed. I am thankful every day for the outcome of these charges and I owe it all to Mr. Ralph Habib!

Ralph was very clear in his explanations of the legal issues I was facing and successfully fulfilled every promise he made. I would strongly recommend him. He truly went above and beyond in my case and that is a rarity for an attorney.

Seth was referred by an excellent lawyer from Cleveland, OH and I found his services remarkable. He delivered more then he promised. I guess that what makes any client happy. Thank you Seth, I wish we had more professionals like you in this country.

An honorable man

I was charged with 3 counts of DWI with a BAC of .26 and was faced with serious penalties. It was Fathers day weekend and I found myself at the grave of my oldest son. I made it home thankfully without hurting anyone or causing any property damage. Stupidest thing I'd ever done. It's no excuse for dumb choices but Mr. Habib believed in me and working closely with the DA and counseling services got all charges reduced to 1 count of DWAI and 1 count of reckless driving. I will be forever in this man's debt because now I'm home with my other children instead of waiting for them to come visit me.

Great lawyer, great individual

Ralph persevered relentlessly through my difficult DWI case to bring it to a very favorable outcome. The case spanned over 7 months with multiple court dates and he was with me all the way through. He is extremely approachable and responsive as well as very knowledgeable and I would recommend him to anyone out there.

lawyer review

Mr. Bruffett was a lawyer that I could depend on; he returned phone calls, answered questions, and advised me. He explained the legal process. I am very thankful for his expertise, during this difficult time. Without Mr. Bruffett's assistance, my outcome wouldn't have have been as favorable.

Would recommend to anyone

Seth Azria was recommended to me by a friend. I can't say enough about how well I was treated, his responsiveness, and how my case was handled. My first call to him was on 12/22/14 and we met the same day. My first and last date in court was 1/15/15. The outcome was better than I ever expected it could be and would recommend him to anyone.
