I want to highly endorse Attorney Steven Tomeo should you need legal representation. In my dealings with Attorney Tomeo he was always prompt and well prepared. He obtained witnesses and material that was pertinent to my case and was diligent in following up with me, even on evenings and weekends. I was pleased with Attorney Tomeo's representation and would not hesitate to have him represent me in future dealings, should the need arise.
Attorney Tomeo is eminently professional, and took care to explain my charges, the implications of conviction, and his proposed method to help me resolve my case as well as possible clearly and completely.
Attorney Tomeo has represented me twice, both times to my complete satisfaction and gratitude. Attorney Tomeo is eminently professional, and took care to explain my charges, the implications of conviction, and his proposed method to help me resolve my case as well as possible clearly and completely. He answered any questions I had. I always felt well prepared when entering the courthouse. In addition to providing exceptional legal advice, the program Attorney Tomeo suggested I participate in has helped me changed my life for the better. I will forever be grateful for that.
They truly helped me...
I contacted Tomeo Sills based on an Internet search for DUI related law firms, in order to appeal false violations on an Ignition Interlock Device. My experiences up to the point of contacting this firm were not good. In most cases I would make multiple calls, which were not returned, and the answers I received when I DID get a response, did not inspire confidence. Basically, nobody seemed to know how these types of cases worked.
From my first call to Tomeo Sills, it was apparent to me that I had found the right firm. Attorney Jonathan Sills returned my call very promptly, listened to my saga and explained to me exactly what the process would be and the likely outcome or possible alternate scenarios. Attorney Sills and all of the staff at Tomeo Sills were polite, professional and competent at all times; emails and phone calls were returned promptly and he was able to help me achieve the desired result.
I would recommend this firm to anyone I know.
Thanks again to Attorney Sills and the fine folks at Tomeo Sills.
He went all out for me.
Steve represented me in a tough case. He tried to get the charges dismissed due to a bad stop and a lack of probable cause. We had to make the argument but knew that our position was weak. A full DMV hearing was held where we tried to develop evidence from the arresting officer to help my case. The prosecutor would not reduce the charges or dismiss it. In the end, Steve applied me for the Alcohol Education Program. He did not just walk me down the aisle. He went all out for me. The case was dismissed and I did not have to pay for the AEP.
He settled the other DUI for me. I was able to save my job.
I was in the Alcohol Education Program and picked up another DUI with some other charges in another court. Steve persuaded the authorities to let me remain in the AEP and that case was dismissed. Then he settled the other DUI for me. I was able to save my job. I would have lost everything if I had to go to jail for 30 days like others in my position told me they had to do.
Steve enabled me to save my new job.
I picked up several DUIs back to back. The prosecution had strong cases. However, Steve was able to put together a plea bargain agreement that called for no jail time. While waiting for the final court date I picked up a driving under suspension, alcohol related offense. The result looked like a year without a license; however, Steve was able to structure another plea bargain agreement that in the end resulted in a 45 day license suspension agreement rather than a much longer one. This enabled me to save my new job. I did not have to plead guilty to the operating under suspension, alcohol related.
Steve was always available to my wife and me.
I was charged with my third DUI, all were within 10 years. When I went to court the prosecutor told me to hire an attorney because I was facing up to 3 years in jail. I talked the matter over with Steve. He did his investigation. Then he scheduled a DMV hearing and had a full hearing with the police officers. His partner Attorney Jonathan Sills conducted the hearing. The transcript of the proceeding along with the police video was given to the prosecutor for his review. The charge was reduced to a second offense with 120 days in jail. Steve recommended that we go to trial but I decided not to do so. It can go either way at trial and if I went to trial they would have charged me as a third offender. If I lost at trial I would go to jail for over a year. I chose the 120 days instead. This lower charge with sentence enabled me to save my job. Steve met with me numerous times, answered all of my questions and was always available to my wife and me for consultations. As it now stands, I am anticipating an early release from jail.
Steve negotiated a wonderful plea bargain agreement. I was happy as was my wife.
I have known Steve and his partner, Jonathan Sills for over 5 years. I first met Steve professionally when I was charged with Driving Under Suspension, alcohol related, and a violation of probation-DUI related. Jail was inevitable and it was the length of time that I was worried about. I was guilty but I only wanted minimal jail time. Steve negotiated a wonderful plea bargain agreement. I was happy as was my wife. Then after getting out of jail I picked up another operating under suspension, alcohol related. Once again I was facing mandatory jail and a VOP. I was guilty as hell. I thought the stop was bad and wanted to risk everything at a hearing or trial. In the end we plead out but the sentence, this time, was less than the one before. People say to me “well, you still did time so what good was an attorney.” Well, all that I can say is that when you violate the criminal law jail is usually a risk and in alcohol related cases and VOP cases it may be a probability. You need an attorney that can strike a plea bargain with the prosecutor that a Judge will accept. Steve did this for me. I was happy and would recommend him to anyone. The good this is that I am now alcohol free!
He worked diligently to help achieve a final result of nolle prosequi, which was an immense relief.
When I was unexpectedly charged with DUI in Connecticut, I was discouraged, frightened, and concerned about possible effects on my professional life. Fortunately for me, my contacts at top firms referred me to Jonathan Sills and his partner as experts in Connecticut DUI law. Attorney Sills was extremely patient in discussing all aspects of the case to me, from the time of the charge through the resolution, guided me through each step of the process, and consistently and thoroughly answered all of my questions. He worked diligently to help achieve a final result of nolle prosequi, which was an immense relief. When facing a serious criminal charge, nothing replaces having a determined, knowledgeable criminal attorney like Mr. Sills on your side. He has my strong recommendation for anyone seeking the best in criminal defense.
God Bless You!
Dear Attorney Sills: I know you were just doing your job I hired you for but thank you so much! I know my road will be long and hard, but because of your help, it will be just a little easier. Thanks again and god bless you and your family!
You have been nothing short of amazing!
Dear Attorney Sills: The thanks are from me to you. You have been nothing short of amazing. I have never been in this type of situation before. Your dedication and sincerity were obvious to me at all times.
Just want you to understand (and I know nothing about the law) that this time, you defended a good guy who is just getting through a difficult time that often seemed unbearable.
As you probably know I am a Christian and i believe that God made you my attorney. I will forever remember you as life changing. I know that sometimes a job can be less than gratifying. Happens in my profession and I am sure it happens in yours. Sometimes with my patients, particularly the children and families I serve, you hit the sweet spot and the ball sails over the center field wall. You did that for me.
Knowledgeable, Professional Lawyer
Mr. Sills helped me to understand all of the processes and procedures. It really eased my mind to know I had such a knowledgeable professional lawyer on my side. I can’t thank you anymore for everything you have done for my case.
I chose the right lawyer!
I was facing 3 years in jail if convicted. Attorney Sills was not afraid to take my case to trial. When I heard the Jury say Not Guilty, I knew I had chosen the right lawyer.
I knew we picked the right attorney.
My Son called to tell me the good news about all charges being dropped. Attorney Sills is good! I knew we picked the right attorney. His excellent website led us to him. His competence and style on the phone solidified the relationship. And the results have created real client good will.
My criminal charges were dismissed.
I was arrested for DUI and thought there was no hope. My blood alcohol content was 3X the legal limit. Attorney Sills pointed out that I was treated unfairly by the police. I never lost my license and my criminal charges were dismissed.
