“I hired Mr. Boyle when my son got into some serious trouble. He was looking to serve up to 50 years in prison. Mr. Boyle got his sentence reduced to 9 months in rehab. Mr. Boyle was dedicated to my son’s case. He always kept us informed of the legal process and what to expect. He also was able to keep the police from seizing our vehicle. I would highly recommend Mr. Boyle to anyone looking to hire a lawyer. He is a very knowledgeable lawyer.”


“David provided great representation in my case. He was plain spoken and made sure I understood all of the options for my case. He provided valuable insight and what to expect. As a former prosecutor, he knows the system and took time to walk me though this process. He saved me over $300 in fines and fees.”

“David is an excellent attorney and advocate for his clients. His knowledge as a former prosecutor is invaluableable. He knows the weaknesses of the State’s case and is able to exploit those in his client’s favor. I would highly recommend David to anyone facing criminal charges.”
