    “If you are feeling how I was feeling uncertain about the legal trouble you just got into, and uncertain about the future I’d call the Salwin Law Group right now. I called Stewart and he talked to me right away that day and for free during my lunch and he gave me what I needed right then and there peace of mind. I hadn’t been in trouble before so he was knowledgable of the proceedings and laid out the steps for me. He also told me different outcomes and strategies we could take. In the end after 2 months Stewart took care of everything I didn’t have to do anything. He got me the best outcome and I feel like a free man again.
