  • Gretchen and Ann made me feel as if I was their only client.

      This was the first time I found myself in this situation (criminal family assault and civil protective order).  The big problem for me was that my wife put me in this bad situation.  I had few friends and family to support me because I was new to the country.  I did not understand the situation I was facing.  From the first time I sat down with Ann, I felt that she could help.  I also felt she was very confident and professional.  I met with Ann for a consult and then went to court for my hearing where they gave me the right to have an attorney appointed for low cost because my income was low.  After my first appointment with the court appointed attorney, I made a decision to hire Ann.  Since I had a civil protective order hearing and a criminal charge the cases were on different days.  Ann was in court in another county for the civil protective order hearing.  However, I was lucky enough to meet her partner Gretchen.  Gretchen is so smart and also made me feel comfortable when I met with her.  I believed they made an excellent team working together on my case.  Ann and Gretchen responded to all my emails and questions in a way I could understand.  They were prompt in responding as well.  When I needed to schedule an appointment to meet with one of them about my case, it happened quickly.  Gretchen and Ann made feel as if I was their only client.  Thank goodness they did because now there is no protective order thanks to Gretchen.   Ann got me a Not Guilty verdict on the assault charge.   I can start my life in the country I have always dreamed about living in.  I give a big thanks to Ann Thayer and Gretchen Taylor.  I will never forget them.

  • Excellent Lawyer!!! Very professional, tough, kind and understanding

     Well I was recently arrested for a pretty hefty misdemeanor and was very uncertain and pessimistic about what the outcome of the case would be (also was my first time dealing with the legal system), but Counselor Taylor kept myself and my family well informed and reassured through the whole ordeal and I was more than happy with the outcome. She is very understanding and really fights for your best interest as well as the best possible outcome. Represents her clients with honesty, perseverance, and great optimism when you truly need it most. You are in good hands by hiring Gretchen Taylor as your attorney. My family and I truly thank Counselor Taylor for all her work and expertise in all this. Awesome, Highly recommended!!

  • First Person I would call

    Ms Thayer (Ann), I want to thank you so much for how you represented me on my court case. From the very first phone call and how quickly you responded back to me, all the way to the day after my court appearance, you made me feel as if I was your only client. I  found myself  in a situation where I had no idea how to handle and you walked me through every part of the process in clear, simple detail that I was able to understand and that really put me at ease. The fact that you rearrange my court date so I can maintain my family vacation did more for me and my family than you can imagine and I am forever grateful for your dedicated, professional and exceptional service.  The research you did and the coaching you give my wife and I in preparation for my trail date was exactly what we needed to win and everything happen exactly as you prepared us. Your knowledge of the law and understanding of the system is un-matched and  I was so glad that you were representing me. I thank once again for a winning, well planned approach and most of all for making sure I was victorious. You left nothing to chance and if I am ever in need of a lawyer you will be the first person I call. Thank you

  • She made me feel comfortable with choosing her to represent me

    Ann Thayer was a professional (not just with her words, but her dress, and demeanor), well educated, intelligent and well mannered lawyer. She made me feel comfortable with choosing her to represent me, and the outcome is exactly what I wanted.  She was timely on responding back to me if I had any questions, and she gave everything to me straight.  I enjoyed working with her and am very pleased with her representation in my case.

  • Ann Thayer is unstoppable in bringing equal justice for her clients.

    Atty Ann Thayer is an excellent criminal defense attorney. The combination of smart and very hard working person is one of Ann Thayer's attributes. Her professional expertise of the law, and personal concerns for her clients set her apart from other attorneys. Ann Thayer is unstoppable in bringing equal justice for her clients. Eight months ago, my brother was accused of unlawful videotaping of a minor. He was in jail for almost a month without a court appointed attorney. When Ann Thayer came in the picture, she immediately took the burden away from me of having to deal with the messy court and jail systems. I wasn't getting any sleep for a month worrying about my brother. Thank God, Ann Thayer came along. She's not just a lawyer, Ann is also an educator. She's very persistent in making sure I understood what was going on, what to expect and what she can do/what she will do for my brother's defense. She never got tired of re-explaining things to me, to my brother-her client, and later on to other family members. Ann is a very passionate about her work and she's a very determined person. She's one-of-a-kind. With Ann Thayer, you'll be in good hands, and you'll never feel you are alone and helpless. In the end, Ann got my brother's sentence reduced from 20 yrs. to 3 yrs. If you're ever in need of an attorney, I HIGHLY recommend hiring Ann Thayer

  • Very pleased and impressed!

    I came to Gretchen w/ a very personal and hurtful case involving animal cruelty. Just those two words bring back so much pain from a very wrongful charge. She listened to my side when nobody would. The officer never even tried to communicate w/ me before stating her judgment. When you love and put your dogs before yourself, it can crush your spirit for someone to form an opinion based on appearance. Without the whole story and Gretchen to represent me, I would have faced losing my babies who are safe, happy, and healthy. There could have even been a sentence for jail time. There could have also been 3 dogs, alone and in a shelter, very confused and having a small chance of having the life they need, the life here with me. Please consider Ms. Taylor for your legal issues. You won't be disappointed. I will always be loyal to her counsel and wish you the best with your legal trouble... if you need more than luck, call Gretchen!
