Testimonials From Rutland County, VT Clients:

"We thank you for the truly superb job you did in helping our son navigate successfully through a complicated legal process that took place in both criminal and family court! Not only did you expertly research and prepare his case, you were brilliant defending him in front of the various prosecutors and judges. We also very much appreciate that you were most patient, helpful and kind during the stressful times leading up to the final court date. You have our deepest appreciation and our highest recommendation!"
—From a Vermont Client

"I cannot thank Brad Myerson enough for helping me with my DUI case. After having dinner with close friends during a "girls" weekend at my home in Killington I was pulled over for a frivolous driving infraction and later found myself under arrest for suspicion of DUI..... I was very impressed that Mr. Myerson brought every detail to the table at my hearing and without even knowing the immediate outcome, I felt a sense of confidence that it would go well. Along with Mr. Myerson's professionalism came a sense of caring and understanding of how negatively this situation can impact the individual and their family. After five long months my case was dismissed and I would highly recommend Mr. Myerson's services."
—From a New Hampshire Client

"Brad Myerson was recommended to me by a friend in the legal system after I was pulled over and charged with DUI-1. Over the course of a year, and after many court dates, the civil suspension case was dropped, and the criminal case was lessened to a negligent operation charge. This outcome was achieved in a county where the State’s Attorney office had a firm policy against reducing civil DUI charges. I don’t intend to be a repeat customer, but I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Myerson Law Offices again.""
—From a Rutland, Vermont Client

" I can't thank you enough for all your hard work. You have done far more than what I thought would be possible in this case. My family and I will forever be grateful."
- From a Pennsylvania Client

"We cannot thank you enough for your support and expertise during his case. You were always willing to explain things to us many times over until we fully understood and you kept us informed regularly of any and all progress while remaining honest and managing our expectations. Your office staff was kind and provided us with copies of all documents in a timely manner. The end result for his case could not have been better and it never would have been possible if you hadn't asked about the situation thoroughly enough to challenge the case. A short email doesn't accurately express our gratitude for the outcome; please know we will recommend you should anyone we know have a similar situation because you acted on his behalf so well."
- From a Massachusetts Client

"After I was arrested for DUI with a BAC of 0.23, I felt a lot of guilt, shame, and remorse. I was also about to get a lifelong record that would cost a lot now and seriously disrupt my work and my future. I decided taking personal responsibility for this didn't mean letting the State decide my future, and so I searched for the best lawyer I could find who specialized in DUI's in Vermont, who would fight for me and who I could trust with the whole truth and with my families future. Choosing Bradley Myerson was one of the best decisions of my life. He examined every inch of my case for legal possibilities, challenged in court and won a suppression of the breath evidence, and then he negotiated a much reduced penalty that I can manage and live with. I feel that my family was given a second chance, thanks to Bradley Myerson."
