“I was facing three felonies and Malarcik had those felonies reduced to misdemeanors with only a fine and court costs. He is knowledgeable, professional, treats you with respect, returns all phone calls promptly, and is courteous. He also knows the law inside and out. I would recommend him to anyone.”
