Mr. Sawyer is very effective. He is approachable and open to questions and personal concerns. There were many loose ends that could have caused trouble for my case, but Mr. Sawyer went above and beyond the call of duty (beyond what most lawyers would do) to make a positive outcome. The prosecution was left with their jaws open and a look of dismay way before the case was over. The jury did not have to deliberate long to come back with a decision of not guilty.
