Augustus Claus is my family’s saving grace!

Augustus Claus is my family’s saving grace! I wish I could give more than 5 stars. This law firm works hard to provide top tier quality legal services. We experienced a life changing event that would have been a a lot different without having him fighting for my husbands freedom. I strongly recommend and am 100% confident in referring anyone to him should the need arise. Because of Mr Claus and his firms outstanding professionalism, persistence, compassionate support, reliability, advocacy, responsiveness and tireless effort I will continue to highly recommend Augustus Claus to anyone in need of top notch attorney whether it be pretrial, sentencing, appeals, or post conviction.

He  practices law not for the money, but because he has passion for what he  does

I have used a lot of  attorneys in the past for business and personal matters. I have nothing  good to say about any of them, GUS IS THE EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE. He is  razor sharp, focused, attentive and honest. He has unequivocally earned  my trust as legal counsel for ALL my personal and business matters. He  practices law not for the money, but because he has passion for what he  does…AND IT SHOWS.

Adam K, Las Vegas, NV USA

These people get the job done.

Augustus, Toby, and Jeremy have earned 5 stars because they looked out for my son before, during and after his case. I can honestly say they treated my son like family. They did something’s for my son that most attorneys in the Vegas area don’t care about. These people get the job done. They’re patient, kind and extremely loyal. My name is Leah Thomas and I would not hesitate to use this law firm again!!! I’m not sure what shape we’d be in without them. Thanks for everything words cannot express your dedication and determination to your clients.

Caring people

I can’t say enough good  things about Mr. Claus and his staff. The outcome of my case turned out  way better than I thought it would. My charges were lowered, I paid a  fine and had to do an online course for a few hours. That’s it. I was  very nervous and worried. Every person I spoke with on the phone was  great. Jeremy and Tobi are awesome. Both are caring people. Tobi spoke  with me many times and was so helpful. She was right about Mr. Claus. He  was confident, professional and made an impact with my case. Thank you  all very much!
