I came to the Shiller*Preyar Law Offices because of a bogus drug charge. April Preyar won a motion to suppress on my behalf and I beat the charge. She was great. She got right to the point, and the judge said she was right and the prosecutor could not say anything.

April Preyar taught me everything I know about criminal defense. She was very patient and very skilled in showing me the ropes. Her presence and comfort in court was obvious and impressive.
