    I was charged with Driving under the influence with the intent for the legal system to impose greater offences. Steve and Ari came together and diplomatically negotiated a reduced penalty with greater than expected results with minimal to limited disruption to my life. Their expertise helped this extremely challenging situation move seamlessly through the system. I highly recommend their service if you run into this unfortunate circumstance in your life.

    Meltzer and Bell was with me during my tough time facing my first offense DUI. They were able to understand my situation and get me the help I needed when facing the law. Steven Bell in particular is very professional, attentive and easy to talk to. He offered me advice anytime that I needed. My misdemeanor was handled easily and quickly thanks to him and his team! Would never pick any other lawyer for any of my issues. They’re the best and my favorite to work with! Highly recommend!
