Arrested for DUI in Norwalk in the summer of 2016. Due to irresponsibility, ADHD, undiagnosed and untreated mental issues, and substance abuse, did not follow through with court ordered program for first offenders. Missed court dates, had other run ins with the law because of being on their radar, and ended up with four separate cases including MV cases, failures to appear, and a harassment case. Hired Attorney Thygerson in 2019 because it was clear help was needed to navigate through the court system. Then in 2020 COVID 19 happened and everything got pushed off, delayed, rescheduled for nearly 12 months.
Attorney Thygerson always communicated clearly and timely. He made sure we knew when court dates were, what was expected, what would happen. Ultimately, he had the four separate cases consolidated, spoke with the prosecutors, and had some of the charges dismissed. He was completely honest and thorough in telling us what to expect and explains everything clearly. He is calm and professional and inspires confidence in your case. He takes the time needed. In this case, he dealt with the DMV and they rescinded a second requirement for an interlock device because we'd already had one before and complied with the order more than two years earlier. (Try talking to DMV yourself about something like that.) He suggested we get paperwork to prove successful involvement in a drug rehab program, and presented that on our behalf to the prosecutors.
He knew what to do to get the best possible outcome. He has had enough experience with the system, with those accused, with court personnel, and with others in the legal profession and law enforcement that he can strategize and determine what is best to do in your situation. It's worth paying for that experience if you are unsure about being able to successfully navigate the system and / or if you have a complicated or less than ideal situation. The fact is, "equal justice" doesn't exist. It's going to be difficult for you if you don't have an "in", know somebody, or have a ton of money. Attorney Thygerson is experienced, very savvy, upfront, and good at what he does. He takes your situation seriously. You don't feel as if you're just a number to him, and he will not judge you. He treats his clients with respect. And he will get you a result that you would not have gotten without his help. He is highly recommended without reservation.
