What others say about us

I hired Mrs. Wetzel after I had gotten my second DUI. She was very helpful and did a fantastic job! I got no jail time, which is what I was dreading most.

Second DUI Client

Facing two separate felony charges, I turned to Goldman and Wetzel because of their good reviews. Not only did they go above and beyond in every situation, they got one charge completely dismissed and the other reduced to a misdemeanor.
