Drug and Gun Violations

"I was charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin. I was arrested and my baby was taken to social services. It seems that my world was crashing down quickly. Mr. Onifer is my father's attorney and he agreed to represent me. He had me enroll in drug and alcohol therapy and I was able to get my child back. On my trial date he convinced the Judge to give me a probation before judgment verdict." --Alexandra Orem

"I was charged with second-degree assault and malicious destruction of property and Mr. Onifer was able to have both charges dismissed." --Michael Elliot
