Best attorney for executives

Have you ever made a mistake? Have you ever had life situations that you reacted to incorrectly and didn’t make the best choices afterwards? Unfortunately I have. Sometimes life doesn’t go your way and you make bad choices. This could be a career ending event. i was lucky enough to find Tim Barrouk. As a company executive, a dui could have been the end of my career. I’m embarrassed for the choices I made but the law doesn’t care about that. Tim Barrouk does. Tim fought for me to the highest degree. He never once judged me on the charges, but always looked at how he could best help me get through my mistakes.

While it was a long and exhausting battle. Tim, was without a doubt the best attorney to fight for me. Thanks to Tim, I’m Still a senior level ranking executive at a major corporation. Without Tim working his magic and using his knowledge to clear my name, I wouldn’t be were I am. As a sole income earner and father of two, Tim’s results have truly saved my life. When I got arrested , I thought that was it. I’m done. My wife will divorce me. I’ll never get back to my level of work. It’s over. Tim kept me encouraged and I can’t thank him enough.

Because his hard work has helped me be where I am today. A DUI isn’t the end of your life if you learn from it and have the right attorney. I make nearly 3x as much money as I did just 5 years ago. And for you Executives that want to put that into perspective. I was making 110k when I got my DUI . I make nearly 350k now. Mistakes can be forgiven IF you have the right representation. Tim Barrouk is the right representation. I’d HIGHLY recommend anyone contacting Tim for representation. Be honest and he will get you the best outcome. Thanks Tim!
