Our law firm was established in 1987, long before many of the other so-called DUI firms were formed. Over almost 30 years, our lawyers have been instrumental in creating lasting Florida DUI case law and current partners of our firm are/were members of the Florida Traffic Rules Committee.
We have 15 full-time DUI/criminal lawyers on staff. This allows us to work on our cases, using a “team approach”. Routinely, our lawyers conference each other so that each case may be reviewed by multiple DUI lawyers. Our DUI results speak for themselves. Please review our“Recent Court Victories” section on our website for some of our recent court wins. The facts of your case might be similar.
Most of our lawyers are former Assistant State Attorneys or Former Assistant Public Defenders. This criminal experience sets us apart, as our attorneys are trained in DUI/criminal trial procedure. We have taken approximately one thousand of DUI/Criminal cases to jury trial from discovery to verdict.
Many of our lawyers have been featured on local and national programs relating to DUI/traffic related topics. When a topic such as this makes the news, we are often the firm that is called for a comment. Allow our team of DUI lawyers to put their experience to work for you.
Since 1987, The Ticket Clinic law firm has been defending DUI/Criminal and other traffic related cases in Florida. What once started as a single office has transformed into the largest DUI/traffic law in Florida, with 26 REAL locations. Our footprint is unmatched and helps us conveniently serve clients across the state in their neighborhood. Our attorneys are LOCAL. This allows us to know the people that are involved in your case and build relationships around the courthouse. We know what to say, and who to say it to. We don’t have to travel around the state, meeting the people involved in your case for the first time. Therefore, we keep our costs down and pass that savings onto our clients. We provide aggressive DUI representation, at a fraction of the cost of other law firms. On occasion, if asked, we will assist people charged with crimes in areas where we don’t have an office. The vast majority of the time, we handle cases where we appear regularly. This local difference sets us apart from many other law firms. Click here to find a location near you.
Our experience and commitment to detail show in our results. Routinely, we are able to get DUI cases dropped and driver license suspensions reversed at the DMV. Please visit our “Recent Court Victories” and “Can I get my Drivers License Back” sections on our website. These are just some of the recent cases that we have worked on.
A successful DUI defense is the result of years of concentrating on these detail-specific cases. Our law firm focuses on DUI/Criminal and traffic cases only, so we don’t have to spend time learning other areas of the law. General law firms, that work on a wide range of cases, need to try to master many areas of the law. We take a different approach. We focus on 1 area of the law and try to provide the best defense possible.
Being a good trial lawyer is critical to being a good DUI lawyer. Many lawyers have a reputation of just taking pleas on DUI cases. The prosecutors know who those lawyers are. Since they know that the lawyer won’t take the case to trial, the State Attorney has no incentive to work out a favorable deal for the client.
We have literally taken approximately 1,000 DUI/Criminal cases to jury trials. This willingness to take our cases to trial (with our clients’ consent) lets the State Attorney know that we will not merely plea if they offer an unreasonable settlement. We believe that this reputation is critical in order to obtain the best results for a DUI case.
Our decades of DUI experience is not expensive. Our legal fees start at just $1495, payment plans a low as $70 are available. Call for more information!
Many lawyers feel that DUI cases demand very high legal fees. Our firm takes a different approach. We provide aggressive DUI representation at a fraction of the cost.
Many law firms spend countless hours driving from town to town for DUI cases. They charge their clients for this time. Since we have 26 REAL offices and are TRULY LOCAL, we don’t have to do this. We pass these savings onto our clients.
Don’t be fooled by the reasonable fees. We always provide aggressive LOCAL DUI representation by a highly trained DUI lawyer at a lower cost.
Another difference, we offer payment plans as low as $70 per month! We are always willing to work with our clients so that our fees are manageable for everyone’s budget. Don’t let a legal fee get in the way of top quality DUI representation. The DUI attorneys at The Ticket Clinic are always here to help.
