  • Incredible lawyer, dedicated and kind
    I had no idea what to do. I had just been charged w/ an extreme DUI the day before Thanksgiving and my world that I had built and sacrificed for was slowly crumbling away. I had previously hired the firm of Nesci & St. Louis to represent me for another case but had not personally worked with Sean. After talking with him, I can't imagine working with anyone else. He was not only very knowledgeable but was extremely patient and respectful. He walked me through the entire process and kept me constantly informed. He successfully got all charges dismissed! A great lawyer that I can't recommend enough. I have nothing but good things to say about Sean and the people over at Nesci & St. Louis. Professional, caring, and trustworthy Sean performed well above any expectations.

  • Five stars aren't nearly enough.
    You always hope you'll never need an attorney, but when your life hits rock bottom and just keeps piling on, you need someone who is truly in your corner. Details aside, I did a bit of research online and eventually settled on calling Nesci and St. Louis and eventually met with Mr. Huffman. The day of my consultation, number one, he LISTENED to me...REALLY listened. He was confident he could help me, and while he made no guarantees, he assured me he would do his very best to get the most favorable result possible. Though this was just the first step, I left his office feeling more confident than I had in quite a while, and I knew that this was the "right" attorney to handle my case. Throughout the process, Mr. Huffman and his paralegal kept me informed every step of the way, answering every one of my questions patiently and completely. Fast forward several more months, to the conclusion of my case--and a much more favorable outcome than I could have imagined, "thank you" wasn't, and never will be, nearly enough. Court proceedings are never fun, and an unknown outcome can drive one's stress level up sky high, but Mr. Huffman and his staff are completely dedicated to their clients and will fight tooth and nail to get you the very best results possible. Five stars aren't nearly enough.

  • Above and beyond always!

    I have never had such a good experience with an attorney before! Sean and his office staff and everyone I dealt with were beyond professional, responsive, and educated me on a great deal. The issue was resolved and I would highly recommend Sean to anyone looking for this kind of attorney!

    I had an abusive ex husband contest a restraining order I took out on him and it was difficult to find someone who would represent me as it is usually the other way around, the defendant needing representation not the plaintiff but I wanted to make sure it stuck so I was safe and retained Sean to represent me. Sean fit me in same day I called for the initial consultation and right from the get go he made me feel comfortable and worked with me and my younger brother who was a witness the entire way. It was a very emotional thing to face my abuser and have them try to discredit me when I am trying to escape them but Sean got me through me it. The restraining order was upheld and I owe Sean a lot for his time and efforts to not only represent me but to make me feel more comfortable during the process and to help me understand how things worked and didnt work. I feel safer and more confident to pursue another legal case I have against my ex husband now that I am protected legally and Sean is having someone help me figure out how to proceed with that despite his office not practicing in that area. Above and beyond always!

    Sean has helped me move on feeling safe finally after 15 years of a miserable life. You simply can't put a price on that.

    I can't thank Sean enough and if I ever found myself in need of his services again he would absolutely be my first choice.

    10/10!!!!

  • Outstanding Attorney Joe
    I was charged with a DUI in October and knew I needed the best defense attorney in Tucson, so I spoke with a friend who retired after forty years as an officer with the Tucson Police Department and he said that Joseph St. Louis of the firm of Nesci and St. Louis is the most respected anywhere in Arizona. I called Joe that day and within two days I had an appointment with him. During the few minutes I waited to see Joe at his office, I was able to peruse the many distinguished awards he has received along with his impressive academic history as well as his numerous admirable professional positions. From my first meeting with Joe, I knew I was in excellent hands in his handling my case. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, numerous hearings were postponed by the court, but Joe, thorough his impeccable research and highly qualified support from related professionals in the field of DUI defense, was always fully prepared to defend me and he did. He kept me fully updated with my case through detailed emails and phone calls. Recently, Joe was able to get my DUI charge changed to a reckless driving plea and I am currently fulfilling the court-required steps to end my case. In addition, Joe St. Louis has an outstanding staff of highly-qualified legal experts, including Clarissa Goar, his legal assistant. I highly recommend Joe St. Louis to anyone who is in need of the finest DUI or criminal attorney anywhere.

  • 10 Stars

    I would give Joe 10 stars if it was possible. Joe represented me and was successful in obtaining a full dismissal of my case. From my very first meeting with Joe, he highlighted the potential flaws in the state's case and those exact flaws ultimately led to my dismissal 16 months later. I found Joe to be extremely professional, honest, knowledgeable, hard-working, and responsive. His years of experience really shine in the courtroom and I could tell the judges respected him. I feel so lucky that someone recommended Joe to me and give my absolute highest recommendation of Joe to anybody that may need help.

  • I highly recommend Nesci & St. Louis!
    I would highly recommend Nesci & St. Louis to anyone that needs them, especially Sean McNally one of the Lawyers there. He is very professional and explained everything in detail, and he and his staff kept me informed about the procedures every step of the way.

  • Excellent Thorough Defense - Successful in this Case!
    I contracted Joe through (at the time) Nesci & St. Louis in 2017. Mr. Nesci has since retired, but Joe was always handling the case. Although their fee is higher than most, the saying "you get what you pay for" is applicable. Joe did a magnificent job of case research, preparation, filing motions and, importantly, listening. Although in this case, it appeared the prosecutor should dismiss the case, he was determined to go to trial so we finally went to trial in early 2020. After one day of prosecutor's witnesses testifying, and Joe tactfully and thoroughly shredding their testimony, the prosecutor dropped all charges. The case was unusual and Joe can't guarantee that you're going to win, but what I can guarantee on his behalf is that you will get the most thorough defense possible. Very pleased with his work ethic and organization.

  • Hopefully, we will never be in this situation again, but if we are, I would definitely call Joe. I recommended him without reservation.
    I got Joe's number from a family friend and called late at night, as I had just learned that my son had been arrested at a nearby university on marijuana-related charges. I am on a different coast and was very nervous and stressed and in a panic. Much to my surprise and relief, my call was returned in minutes. Mr. St. Louis immediately reassured me. He explained the process to me in great detail, and he knew exactly what to do. Being on the East Coast, this was very reassuring. I deferred to him on every decision, and he was right every step of the way. Though the process was lengthy, he encouraged patience, and in the end, it paid off. My son was initially charged with two felonies. They were reduced and later dropped altogether. Also, there were no surprise charges. We could not ask for a better outcome. Hopefully, we will never be in this situation again, but if we are, I would definitely call Joe. I recommended him without reservation.

  • Don't take your chances with another attorney - hire Mr. St Louis and know you will be taken care of.
    Joe represented me for an Extreme DUI (.16+) case which lasted several years. The first thing he said to me was that he and his firm love to battle, and they were right! For a case that lasted almost four years, Joe and his team stood by my side the entire time and spent hundreds of hours litigating my case. Other lawyers might advise against going to trial, but the courtroom is where Mr. St Louis thrives. Put him in front of a judge and jury and you will clearly see why he is the best. Despite all the state's evidence, he expertly dissected their case and persuaded the jury to return not-guilty verdicts on all counts! His staff is incredibly knowledgeable and always available if you have questions about your case. Don't take your chances with another attorney - hire Mr. St Louis and know you will be taken care of.

  • Though it seemed the evidence was overwhelmingly against me, Mr. St. Louis took the case and fought valiantly on multiple fronts.
    I found myself in a regrettable situation -- one which I will NEVER repeat -- charged with DUI. Though it seemed the evidence was overwhelmingly against me, Mr. St. Louis took the case and fought valiantly on multiple fronts. He clearly has a firm understanding of the law and uses it wisely. In court, he was always professional, astute, courteous, and (in my opinion) very well-liked throughout the system, including judges on down. Without reservation, I highly recommend Joe St. Louis!

  • What at 1st seemed like an inevitable guilty verdict, eventually resulted in the dismissal of the case by the judge.
    Joe represented my 21-year-old daughter in the fight of her life against the state of AZ after she was the driver of a car that crashed down an embankment with a passenger onboard. During the course of the year-long defense that followed, Joe's knowledge of the law, and of the specific people representing the prosecution, proved valuable beyond words. What at 1st seemed like an inevitable guilty verdict, eventually resulted in the dismissal of the case by the judge. Joe's preparation, relentlessness, and savvy demeanor during the evidentiary hearing, all contributed to a result beyond our wildest expectations. Anyone finding themselves in the unfortunate position of requiring legal defense for a DUI charge would be well served (and worth every penny) to engage the services of Mr. St. Louis. Our daughter can now get on with the life she deserves thanks to Joe and his team.

  • My case was dismissed a few months ago and I am forever grateful! Joe helped me get a second chance
    When I was arrested for a DUI I thought my life was over. I had a few consultations with other lawyers, but none of them seemed interested in my case or really acted like they cared. When I first met Joe he was very sympathetic and understanding and assured me that my life wasn't over and that I had he could build a great case for me. He was very honest and upfront about everything from day one. Not only was Joe amazing, his staff was also understanding and prompt to respond to any questions I had about my case. Joe was able to get my all my charges dismissed and get my driving record expunged. My case was dismissed a few months ago and I am forever grateful! Joe helped me get a second chance and I will NEVER make the mistake to drink and drive ever again. If anyone is looking for a great DUI lawyer I would recommend him!! He's the one you want defending you!

  • I was told that he is "the best"...and after watching him in action...I CONCUR!
    I hired Jim Nesci to represent my son in a DUI case in Tucson. I was given his name by a friend (attorney in Phoenix). I was told that he is "the best"...and after watching him in action...I CONCUR! Because there were so very many charges racked up against him......to come away with a completely clean slate was quite impressive. I have and will continue to express my appreciation for Mr. Nesci's skills.

  • Joseph St. Louis is simply the best defense lawyer in Tucson!
    Joseph St. Louis is simply the best defense lawyer in Tucson, he is extremely honest and works hard to make sure that you're the best interest is his priority! In 2012 I made a dumb choice and all other attorneys were telling me that I will do 6 to 12 years and didn't give me any reasons to believe that they could help me so I called Nesci and St. Louis that they said to come in and let's figure out a strategy to help you. .... I felt safe hiring them and didn't stress after that..... Mr. St. Louis managed to get me 1 years sentenced and upon my release I overpaid and they sent me the difference of a few hundred dollars which I didn't even expect... I strongly recommend their law firm.
