Hired Stephen Maltezos for my dui case. He was aggressive from the start, and really kept me informed throughout the entire case. I always felt comfortable with him and felt like I could tell him anything. He was able to get a lot of the evidence against me thrown out and this is what helped us get my case reduced to a reckless driving. I think Stephen C. Maltezos is a great guy and an awesome attorney!!!"

"I hired Stephen to handle an auto accident case. I didn't even know he did those because I only thought he did criminal cases and dui cases. Anyway, I digress, lol, I was hit from behind. The accident was not my fault. I treated at the doctors for 4 months, then Stephen settled my case. I don't want to disclose what I received in case the IRS checks this site, but Mr. Maltezos got the maximum money possible.
Stephen Maltezos is an awesome attorney. Steve, you rock!!!"

Stephen Maltezos is the most focused and reliable attorney I have ever met. You will not find better results elsewhere, even if you hired an attorney with more experience, even if you spend $1,000's of dollars more on someone else to represent you."
