My statutory and practical knowledge of criminal justice system and long standing relationships with the district attorneys and judges gives me the ability get the BEST deals in the courthouse.


In our first consultation I will explain your rights and options. A criminal case requires a thorough defense investigation. Many lawyers rely too heavily on police reports to outline the facts of a criminal case and this is a mistake. The police reports are written by people that want you to go to jail or prison. They are often exaggerated or boiler-plate narratives and sometimes are outright wrong and lies. I spend the extra time to interview witnesses myself and to personally locate all relevant defense evidence


The primary goal of my law office is to have all charges against my clients dismissed. I treat each client as I would expect to be treated—in a professional, confidential, and empathetic manner.

“Reaching out to Ms. Nechay was the only good decision I made during my run in with the law. I was arrested for urinating in public and public intoxication. She immediately dove into my case by learning local laws and jurisdiction in a state where she does not practice. She obtained my arrest report and Police car/body cam footage of the arrest. She found multiple discrepancies between the Police report and the actual events that unfolded. She quickly contacted the prosecutor who oversaw my case and convinced him to dismiss all charges before my appointed court date. I was required to inform my employer of the arrest and charges. Ms. Nechay provided several hours of her time to help coach me how to deal with that dicey process. I could not have asked for a better outcome both legally and with my employer. I am sincerely grateful for her diligent and effective efforts. If you find yourself requiring legal help, she is the attorney to call.”
