Paul Stanko is the best! 10/2/2016

Paul just got me out of a jam in Elkhart County. I had a possession charge, and the word was that I could not get a diversion. Well, Paul me a diversion. All I have to do is stay out of trouble and my case will be dismissed. Thanks Paul! more

Excellent representation in Elkhart marijuana case 7/21/2015

I nearly made a terrible mistake and tried to plead guilty at my first court date in Elkhart on a misdemeanor marijuana possession case. I had never been in trouble before and I only had a small amount of weed. Fortunately the magistrates don't accept guilty pleas at the first hearing. I had time to think things over and found Mr. Stanko.After the prosecutor offered probation we decided to do a straight guilty plea instead and ask for what is called a conditional discharge. That means that if I stayed out of trouble the case would be dismissed.Well long story short, that is what happened. I was able to keep my scholarship and student loans and just got my degree.Thank you Mr. Stanko! more

Not responsive. 7/18/2015

I had mrm Stanko represent me. I paid him $3,000 upfront. He had my felony dui reduced to misdemeanor after completition of house arrest, loss of license and several thousand in fines and expenses. He did not accompany me to my initial hearing. Most upsetting was his complete refusal to communicate or acknowledge my v attempts to contact him. I left this man over 30 voicemail that went unreturned. I emailed him and texted him daily, for months. Only when I passed as a new client would he return my call, ironically very quickly. Avoid! more

DUI Super Lawyer in South Bend 3/14/2015

I was pulled over for drunk driving in South Bend on a football weekend and was in a panic. I live hundreds of miles away and had no idea where to turn. Fortunately I found Mr. Stanko here on Avvo and was able to meet with him that Monday. He got me into the interlock program and arranged for me to do all of my requirements close to home. I only had to fly back to South Bend for court once and my DUI case was dismissed after I finished my program. He obviously is very experienced and familiar with the court system. I could not be more pleased with his advice and his representation. more

Grateful 8/23/2012

My family is grateful for the way Mr. Stanko handled my daughter s case. She was issued a citation for underage drinking on a Saturday night in South Bend, and called me at home in tears. I got hold of Mr. Stanko by telephone the next morning (a Sunday), and he agreed to meet my daughter that Monday morning at his South Bend office. We were able to pay his fee online, which was a tremendous convenience. Mr. Stanko was able to obtain a pretrial diversion for my daughter and had the case dismissed after she finished her requirements. What could have ruined my daughter s future plans instead became a learning experience for her. Mr. Stanko is not just an excellent attorney, but a very understanding and compassionate person. I recommend him to any parent whose son or daughter gets in trouble. He will really put your mind at ease. more

Generous service 6/25/2012

Mr. Stanko was very generous with his time and helped me get out of a bogus situation. I'd say I got a tremendous value. Can't say enough nice things about Mr. Stanko. more

Simply wonderful, super drunk driving attorney 4/27/2012

I've never needed a lawyer before, and I hope I never need one again, but when I had the misfortune last winter of sliding into a snow bank and getting arrested for drunk driving in South Bend (during Snowmageddon), my friend told me I should call Judge Stanko instead of just pleading guilty as I planned to do. I'm really glad I did! Since the police never saw me drive and my breath test was low, he got my DUI charge dismissed and all I got was a public intoxication. I never did any jail time and kept my license. I know there are lawyers that charge very low fees just to plead their clients guilty, but I could have done that myself. Judge Stanko's fees were very reasonable and I got wonderful service in return. I know I saved much more than his fee by keeping my license and not paying high risk insurance. I liked how he knew everything about the court and made sure I understood everything that was happening. He was very kind and friendly to me, and I could tell by the way everyone at court treated him that he is well-respected in the courts. I would tell any of my friends or family in the same situation to call him! He is just a super lawyer! more

Great South Bend Lawyer 11/18/2011

Good: He's a former judge. Extremely confident, experienced and knowledgeable. He had answers to every question I had, and even answered questioned I had never thought of. He knows everybody in the court system.. Bad: Nothing.. Improvements: None.. Other: I was very nervous and stressed out by my situation, but he talked to me about all of my options and really guided me through the whole ordeal. He really seems to care about his clients, very friendly, down to earth. Not like what you expect from lawyers if you believe all the bad things some people say. Great lawyer but also a really nice person!. more

First Rate Lawyer in South Bend 7/7/2011

Mr. Stanko was my lawyer in my drunk driving case in South Bend. I was happy with the way he worked hard to get my case dropped to reckless and saved my license. I would have him be my lawyer again if I ever needed help. Very experienced and he used to be a judge, so everyone respects him in court. more
