Client Testimonials

Todd is the man. I had a night out with friends that ended with a DUI. I called him the next morning and he walked me through the process. He reassured me that this would not affect my future. I was confident with his representation and pleased with the outcome.


”Todd Taplin is a wonderful defense attorney! He was there when I needed him. He's trustworthy and loyal. His rates are affordable and his service is top notch. He got me a nearly impossible deal. I would recommend his service to anyone who needed it. If I ever have any other problems that would need an attorney, he would be the one.”


”I had never used a traffic ticket lawyer before and was very pleasantly surprised with the results. Todd Taplin got my speeding ticket dismissed altogether and saved me hundreds of dollars! As a bonus, I did not have to take off from work to go to court."


”Todd has always taken care of me! I spent a lot of money with him, but that was because of my own foolish mistakes, but it was worth it. One time I had a warrant pop up I knew nothing about and he called me personally and told me to stay in the house for the weekend. He’ll have it taken care of by Monday and sure enough it was squashed without even turning myself in. He also represented me on Reckless Driving Charges, DUI, and more, and the outcome was always good with him on my side. All in all a great lawyer and cares about his clients.”


”Mr Taplin was an excellent asset to me and my husband during a very trying time! He was affordable and worth the money. He got all of my husbands charges dismissed in a timely manner. He was always very open and communicated exactly what we could expect. If you need a lawyer then I highly recommend Todd Taplin. If we ever need a lawyer in the future there is nowhere else we would go. Thank you Mr Taplin for everything you did for us!"


”Todd was one of the best attorneys I have worked with! Not only does Todd explain everything, he is very responsive and a knowledgeable attorney at a great price.”


”I have used Todd twice now and have been very pleased both times. His office is prompt and helpful."
