    "I Would Recommend Him to Anyone Facing a Bad Situation like I Had"
    Mr. Gigstad helped me with my DUI. Sadly this wasn't my first time in need of a lawyer, but I liked Mr. Gigstad a lot more than my previous lawyer. I would recommend him to anyone facing a bad situation like I had.

    "Robert Was Extremely Helpful and Efficient in the Way He Handled My Case"
    Robert was extremely helpful and efficient in the way he handled my case. Due to his hardwork and persistence he was able to get my DUI dismissed and I was only charged with a traffic violation. I highly recommend his services to anyone. Billy

    "I Always Felt "in the Loop""
    Robert was extremely responsive from day one - returning my email contact request almost immediately. He walked me through the process and answered all my questions honestly and promptly. I always felt "in the loop". I originally contacted him because he was the only Johnson County attorney I found that had listed in his advertisement, expungement, as a service he provided. Robert assisted me in doing something I didn't know was possible - finally putting a bad decision I made 14 years ago behind me. Although I appreciated his professional and respectful approach to his work, I hope I never need his services again. If I do however, I would not hesitate to call him.

    "Robert Was Extremely Helpful and Great to Work With!"
    My dad has used Robert for several moving violations in the past and recommended that I give him a call for a speeding ticket of my own. Robert was extremely helpful and great to work with. He successfully got my speeding ticket reduced to a non moving violation.

    "Would Highly Recommend Robert to Others"
    I was facing a second DUI and was very much dreading the impact this would make on my professional career and near future goals. Robert walked me through each part of the process and made sure I understood what to expect through the court process. He was very professional and made sure that no stone was turned. The end result, unbelievably was my charges were all dismissed. He was able to find an important information that lead to the dismissal. Would highly recommend Robert to others.
