Glass Defense Firm Reviews
Mr. Glass is very knowledgeable about the laws in West Virginia. I used him to appeal a decision to revoke my drivers license that the West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles had made. He handled my case professionally, and always kept me informed during the process. When presented with the facts by Mr. Jason Glass, the DMV had no choice but to accept the appeal, and reinstate my drivers license. If I ever have anymore problems with the West Virginia DMV, I will not hesitate to call Mr. Jason Glass. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with the West Virginia DMV. When he talked, they had no choice but to listen. -DUI client
Jason was always there when if needed anything. He explained everything to me and he always found time to talk with me. He is excellent at what he does. I have no regrets whatsoever. If I could go back in time I wouldn't change anything. I couldn't have found a better lawyer. -DUI client
Jason knows the DUI laws inside and out and found several procedural errors with my case. We didn't have to go to trial and the charge was reduced to reckless driving. He kept me informed every step of the way and everything went as he predicted it would. I could not have been more pleased. -DUI client
