I highly recommend Scott Dillon’s services! I am a truck driver from Tennessee and had received a speeding ticket in Madison County, NC. He not only was able to go to court for me, he got the ticket reduced which saved my license and most importantly my job. He answered the phone himself when I called and was very professional and to the point about what he could do for me. I am very grateful.

Hired Mr. Dillan to represent me on a speeding charge in Bucombe County District Court. Being from out of state I was unsure how process worked. Scott helped me throughout, I paid online and case was dismissed on court date. Thankful to have chosen Mr Dillin.
