What Our Clients Are Saying

  • “ I just wanted to thank you so much! I am so pleased with all the hard work you put in. I would have never had the chance to get the outcome I did without you. You did an amazing job and we are feeling very greatful to have made the right call when we chose you.” - P.K.

  • “Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping me get my life back! ” - C.C.
  • “The outcome was just what you said was possible from the first meeting. My wife has had so much pressure relief from knowing that she doesn’t have a DUI hanging over her head. ” - J.F.
  • “ My life took an interesting turn one morning on the way to the grocery store. Law enforcement ran my plates and discovered I had a warrant out for Domestic Assault. I had no idea that a warrant was out there and was taken to jail for booking. I posted bail and contacted Betsey Urbas from Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm. This was a very emotional family situation. Betsey walked me through my rights and possible outcomes and put me at ease. Betsey was able to reach the best possible outcome and secure a deal that got my case reduced to a Disorderly Conduct that will be dismissed in a year. I will also be eligible to petition for full expungement in the future. I would highly recommend anyone in my same situation to contact Betsey Urbas from Caplan & Tamburino.” - M.N.
