William F. Finn Jr.'s Testimonials

“Thank you for everything you did for my case.” Where my case seemed to be an "Open and Shut" guilty case, Bill listened to the circumstance and developed a plan of attack. His willingness to assist was beyond appreciated!

“My ticket was reduced” Mr. Finn handled my speeding ticket quickly and easily. With just a quick phone call with him and then his office and a reasonable fee, my ticket was reduced to improper equipment without even going to court.

“Bill Finn is an exceptional lawyer.” He works extremely hard to achieve your desired result. Just recently, we won a case that I thought had no shot. I would certainly recommend Bill Finn to anyone in the triangle. It was a pleasure to work with him and it was incredible to watch him win my case. He understands how to put his client in the best possible situation to achieve the desired result.

“DUI charge was dismissed” First and foremost my recommendation for Attorney William Finn Jr. came from a gentleman that has worked closely with Mr. Finn in the courtroom and fully aware of his knowledge of the law, interactions with the public and court system. Before I met with Finn I was informed of his character and knew that my case would be taken care of in a timely and professional manner. My initial meeting in his office consisted of case data which involved a DUI/ failure to maintain lane. Mr. Finn explained the multiple outcomes with how my case could resolve and with each outcome, the resolve and solution as to what to do next. I never felt uncomfortable about any meeting or conversation. Mr. Finn always treated me with the utmost respect. My entire case from first meeting to court resolve was a total of 14 months. My DUI charge was dismissed but my failure to maintain lane change was not. If there is ever a need for a lawyer either with me (I hope I don't though :) ) or family/ friends Mr. Finn would be my first and only option.
