Customer Reviews

It was my first offense with a DUI. It was a very traumatic experience for me, but with the help of Mr. Groce, I was able to go through the difficult times. He represented me in a professional manner and his advice guided me to the right path. Thanks to his great knowledge, the Law gave me a second chance. I will be forever grateful to him.

If you need a Great Lawyer for any reason Absolutely hire Mr. Groce to represent you. I had cannabis charges against me and Steven got me unsupervised probation, small amount of drug class hours and NO community service! Even at an affordable price, I got the best possible outcome.

Steven did an excellent job representing me, educating me, and getting me the best deal I could have gotten. This was my first DWI and I couldn’t have hired a more competent, experienced lawyer. His fee was also very fair and I have recommended him many times!!

I hired Mr. Groce after being charged with 2 felonies for having 2 cannabis plants in my home garden, and for having some stored in my home. I only ever used medicinally, but Greene County wanted to put me in prison for 5 years, no probation. Mr. Groce guided me through the 14 month-long process to get to sentencing and was able to get the judge to reduce this to an SIS with only 3 yrs probation and a bit of community service. After probation is served, it will be wiped from my record. Great outcome!
