Phil was amazing at explaining what my charge entailed and how it would affect my record. He told me he would do his best to take care of it and sure enough he did! This was a serious fine (handheld device) and even though I had a good reason, in the eyes of the law I was going to lose my license and have a bad record for life. I learned my lesson but I'm so glad I hired Phil to take care of it and clear me of all charges. Thank you so much!!

I highly recommend legal action. I had a pretty bad speeding ticket, and they were able to reduce it to a minor charge. Phil went above and beyond to explain and give advice on what I should do and I was informed every step of the way. Also his confidence really assured me and kept me calm in this stressful process. The staff at legal action were also very professional, friendly and responsive. Thank you for all your great work!

Just wanted to thank Phil for the amazing service. He was actually attentive and listened and didn't just tell you what he can do. He further explained everything I didn't know and gave me a clear understanding of what he was going to do and the different approaches he could take with my particular ticket. The end result was exactly what I had hoped for and he made that happen for me. Jessica is also great and her response time to emails was very quick. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for assistance with tickets to speak with Legal Action. Thank you once again.

These guys saved me! I had a really bad speeding ticket (almost impounded...) and Phil got it reduced to a Disobey Sign ticket. He kept me in the loop through every step of the way, told me exactly how to handle my insurance company, gave me really great advice, and the customer service from all the staff was amazing. I highly recommend using Legal Action as they really helped me through an extremely stressful situation.

I am so glad I went to Legal Action for two of my tickets. 1) Driver fail to wear a seat belt 2) Driver fail to stop at a stop sign. With the help of PHILIP ALEXIU, one of the lawyers at Legal Action, my first ticket is waved with no charges and totally off the records. Still waiting on my second ticket to give me a court date but I am not worried about it because I know Philip will take care of it. I did not even have to go to the court once. Philip took care of all the court dates and helped me prepare what to say of I had to go to the court. Even in this tough time with COVID-19 Philip took that extra step to make sure that my matter gets resolved as soon as possible. You hard work he highly appreciated Philip. Thank you so much

When I want to share review as a local guide I am more careful so that I say the truth , 1 star is different from 2, so I don't do it randomly. Philip is amazing. I called many others and compared their services, Legal Action is #1. He dropped a speeding ticket with 3 demerit points totally and all I did was just a call and fill in a form.

Awesome guy and amazing company. I thought there was no way this case would be dropped but somehow he did it. Was looking at a hefty fine and demerit points but these guys are the real deal and the case was withdrawn. Super professional and easy to work with, no hassle and very reliable. Love it thank you!

Phil is a fantastic professional who never stops until the best possible resolution for his client has been reached. He beat off 2 points for me and reduced my fine by 50% pitted against some stiff competition in a case which I frankly thought was hopeless. He just never stops fighting that guy! Would recommend him to anyone

Phil, knows his stuff that's for sure. I wasnt thrilled about him passing off my case to amber, but she did a good job defending me against a very abrasive judge. Got a distracted driving charge for using my phone while at a red light... case dismissed! Beautiful. You should always fight your tickets, never talk to the cop and always use legal action. I've had 2 cases with him, 1 fine reduced from $480 speeding to $65 and now this recent one now totally dismissed... very pleased, thank you phil and amber. Great job helping me.

I was recommended to Phil by my cousin who used him to get out of multiple tickets. I had a 59 over ticket on a motorcycle. Phil talked me through the process, explained to me what arguments he would use to fight it and was honest with me about what he thought his chances were of winning. He took time to answer all my questions and doubts. Not going to lie, I was very doubtful he would win this, but he pulled through! Thanks Phil for the great service!
