The most important decision you will make in your DUI case is choosing the lawyer to represent you.
There are lots of good attorneys in Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties.
Some handle the occasional DUI case.
Others handle DUI cases while also juggling other types of criminal, civil, or family law cases.
But less than .1% (not the top 1%... fewer than one-tenth of 1%!) devote their entire practice to defending drivers accused of DUI.
One of the best ways to decide which attorney to hire (and more importantly, which attorney NOT to hire) is to review what former clients say about how their cases were handled and how they were treated.
Obviously, when picking a Tampa DUI attorney and reading what former client are saying about them, you'll be asking questions like, "Does this attorney have enough experience to spot the potential defenses in my case? If there are any issues in my case, does this lawyer have enough skill to raise those issues persuasively and give me my best chance for getting the DUI dropped or reduced to Reckless Driving?"
But in addition to those obvious questions about the lawyer's skill level, you should also be asking questions about how you and your case are going to be treated.
Choosing a DUI lawyer is a little bit like getting into a serious relationship. Your case is going to take several months before it gets resolved. Whoever you choose is going to be with you for the entire time. This is the person who is going to be by your side, the person who is going to protect you, and the person who is going to be your voice in court.
· Will they treat you with respect?
· Will they look out for your best interests?
· Will they recognize your voice when you call, or will you just be one file out of hundreds in their office?
When you hire the Wilcox Law Firm, you will be treated with the respect and dignity that you and your case deserve.
But don't take my word for it.
Instead, take a look at what former clients have to say about me, about how they were treated, and how their cases were handled.
Keep in mind, a lot of these clients were ecstatic because I found legal defenses or problems with the case that led to great results. I can never guarantee that you’ll get the same results because every case is different. I've easily won cases with breath levels over .250, but I've also had a case with .083 BAC where we fought tooth and nail through a multi-day jury trial and still couldn't make it go away.
Every case is different.
Every client is different.
Any attorney who promises you that they can “guarantee” the outcome of your case is probably lying to you. (If they do, ask 'em if they'll put it in writing - I doubt they will). I can't promise you what the outcome will be, but I can promise you that you'll be treated with dignity and respect, that your case will be treated with the seriousness that it deserves, and that I’ll do everything I can to help you avoid a DUI conviction.
After you read what these clients said, schedule a phone appointment so we can discuss your case, outline your potential defenses, and determine whether you’ve got a winnable case.
