Hear What Our Clients Have To Say

I have hired James Tyner to assist me with a few speeding tickets in New York State. I paid Mr. Tyner an affordable flat rate fee and I never had to appear in Court, thus not missing any time from work or school. Mr. Tyner was able to negotiate my speeding tickets down to parking tickets and I was able to keep my license clean. I highly recommend Mr. Tyner's office. He and his staff respond quickly to emails/calls, and I was always provided updates in my cases promptly.
