WHAT SOME CLIENTS SAY ABOUT ANTHONY MONTAGNA, III
I was facing 4 different charges, the worst being assault. I met with Mr. Montagna, and told him my story. He took on the case very seriously. When we finally walked into the court room he was an absolute machine! Mr. Montagna’s ability to finesse the truth from their “stand-in” wintneses made it clear to the judge that there were lies and acts of collusion in there story. Mr. Montagna was able to get three of the most serious offenses thrown out and the fourth deferred for six months. Furthermore, as long as good behavior is observed durring those six months, the fourth charge will also be removed. Mr. Montagna did an incredible job if you need a lawyer, he’s the one to get! He’s been doing this for 20 years, and everyone can tell when he gets set loose in the court room.
“Thanks to Mr. Anthony Montagna and his team for getting my case dismissed today. I really appreciate it”
“He is absolutely one of the best lawyers you could ask for! Very friendly and understanding! If you need assistance he is always there to lend that helping hand! He cares for his clients he isn’t just a guy after money like most people you come in contact with. I can’t thank him enough for all the help!
“Went into court with a DUI, refusal charge, and driving on suspended 3rd offense. Mr Montagna let me know exactly what he was doing and what the possibilities were every step of the way. He offered competitive prices and did not sale me a dream. Being straight forward with me gave me the opportunity to make informed decisions throughout the case. Thanks to Mr Montagna I had all three of my charges DISMISSED. The staff from the time I walked in the door was amazing and made me feel welcomed. Thank you again to Mr Montagna and staff for everything!”
“Anthony Montagna was a huge help, He took his time and spoke personally with me on my case and he got me the best results on my case. I highly recommend!!”
“Tony is not just an amazing lawyer, he’s an amazing person. He makes you feel safe and puts you at ease. I trust this man with my life and you should too.”
“I contacted Mr. Montagna about a criminal defense case and from the beginning he was great. I never had any unanswered questions. I never felt clueless about the court system process that I of course had no experience with before. And most importantly he put in the effort to defend me in front of the judge. What could have been years in prison was settled to a misdemeanor and some classes. He’s a great lawyer.”
Anthony Montagna helped me with my domestic assault cause. I’m currently on probation for a felony charge from years prior. He was able to get my assault charge completely dismissed, which was very important due to the fact I am already on probation, avoiding a violation. He was very straight forward with explaining things to me and all of my options. He was aggressive in court and I was very impressed. The office staff was amazing. I had to bring two of my small children with me to my appointments in his office and the staff was very accommodating with the kids, even watching them for me in a separate room with toys, books, and blocks while I met with Montagna. He is someone I would definitely recommend for any kind of case. He gets the job done.
“We recently had the opportunity to use Mr. Montagna’s services. He was a godsend. He couldn’t have been more professional or caring and he was responsible for the wonderful outcome that was achieved. Mr Montagna knows what he is doing at all times and we are grateful for his help.”
