“I don’t usually write reviews but I had to for Audrey Creighton. I had a minor offense but I always jump to worst case scenario, she was very reassuring that would not happen. She has a way of treating someone like they aren’t just a client, but also a person. 10/10 would recommend Audrey Creighton to anyone looking for an attorney.”

” Audrey was, and is, amazing. Her background, as well as her years & years of experience, place her in a position to place her clients in a favorable position. No one can win every case for their clients. That’s impossible. Some of us are guilty beyond any doubt and the evidence is overwhelming against us. However, I can attest to the fact that Audrey will ALWAYS do her best for you. “
