Saved my friend’s family

T. Augustus Claus / ATAC Law was the court-appointed criminal defense law firm representation for a friend. He was facing, 15yrs to life, for an attempted murder charge that was trumped up by his brother. Mr. Claus and his staff did their research and investigating to find the truth and get the charges against my friend dismissed and dropped. Just in time for his new son to be born.

Mistaken Identity

We Love What We Do! It Shows!

I found out about a warrant I  needed help with

I had set up a free  consultation with Augustus firm because I found out about a warrant I  needed help with. And because I live in California. When I tell you  responsive I mean they were responsive, helpful and told me everything I  needed to know. Came to my appointment talked to Jeremy about how I  found them, what I needed help with and what would my fee be. Helped me  more than I could ever ask for. Jeremy  helped me put a payment plan in  place. And kept in contact with me. The next day started the process and  got a court date the next week. Court date arrived and the firm  delivered. Though I pray to never get into legal trouble again. I’d  recommend Augustus’ firm with NO hesitation. Thank you ! .

Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me and my  children.

I was facing battery  charges.  I was scared and didn’t know what to do.  I am advertisement  from Ataclaw in the mail, a week prior to having to appear. Mr. Claus  took me on as a client and reviewed my case, assuring that I wouldn’t  have to appear in court, as he would go for me.  This was weight lifted  off my shoulders.  Mr. Claus not only appeared in court, but he got the  case dismissed, giving me back my life and more weight lifted off my  shoulder.  Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me and my  children.  Kristal…

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.
