Complicated Case Was Handled To Perfection
Hiring Richard Albanese was one of the best decisions we had made in months. A family member was ticketed with an OWI while in Northern WI. Being an Illinois resident in the midst of a permanent move to WI only complicated this case. Being a young adult, and with us lacking any knowledge and experience in DUI/OWI situations, Attorney Albanese answered the million questions we peppered him with, all with grace and patience. He did not pressure us to contract with him, but explained the myriad of issues involved, and we felt 100% comfortable meeting with him in person to further understand what our case would entail. He was always flexible with timing and accommodated us right away. When we did meet, we were very impressed with Atty. Albanese's professionalism and sense of compassion towards us. He assured us that he would resolve the case to the best of his ability and made us realize that hiring someone who not only knew the laws of Illinois in great depth, but the complicated Wisconsin system was extremely important. There is simply no way anyone can navigate this situation without someone who fully understands the ramifications and protocol of an OWI like Mr. Albanese does. If I called, he answered. He would call me weekly over the 4 month process to update us on the ever-changing situation, and always made me feel like he had unturned every stone there was; ones I had never even considered. He was able to achieve resolution on aspects of this case that I could have never done without his help. Lawyers usually are associated with negative connotations and considered deceitful and corrupt. I can say with absolute honesty that this case would have never had the outcome it had if Atty. Albanese was not handling it on our behalf. I was able to lay my head on the pillow at night, knowing that I did not need to worry if he was taking care of the case. We never had to appear in court nor handle any calls. He did it all. His fare was extremely reasonable, especially for the time he must have put into it. Most definitely, money well spent for something that affects you for the rest of one's life. If you need someone who is sharp, personable, knowledgeable, Wisconsin AND Illinois literate (licensed in both), and will give you the peace of mind that a situation like this has taken away from you--trust Attorney Albanese to handle it.
