Case #: CTXX-XXX09XXXX NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
On May 12, 2012 at approximately 1:46 am, a Temple Terrace Police officer observed a white Ford pickup stopped at a green light at the intersection of Bullard Parkway and N 56th St with the driver behind the wheel sleeping. The Defendant driver had his foot on the brakes while the vehicle was in drive and running. Once the officer made contact with the Defendant, he immediately noticed the strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle. The Defendant was snoring loudly. The officer reached inside the vehicle and put the vehicle in park and shut the vehicle off. After 3 attempts of trying to awaken the Defendant, he finally responded and stated “where am I?” The officer asked the Defendant if he knew where he was and he responded ‘Winterhaven’. While speaking with the Defendant, his speech was slurred and thick tongued. His eyes were bloodshot and glassy and the odor of an alcoholic beverage emitted from his exhaled breath. When asked for his driver’s license, the Defendant attempted to give the officer his bank card. The officer asked the Defendant to exit the vehicle and observed a sway while he was standing. The Defendant was requested to perform field sobriety exercises, which he refused. The Defendant was placed under arrest for DUI and refused to provide a breath sample. An open container of beer was located in the floorboard of the vehicle. The Defendant was previously convicted of DUI in Pasco County in 2008 so he was facing a mandatory jail sentence and 5 year revocation of his driver’s license. Results: The case was set for a jury trial, and the State dropped the DUI charge at the pretrial hearing date just days before the trial was set to begin.

She had definitely gotten herself into some trouble and I cannot believe the outcome was this good!! Thank you again! I will recommend you to anyone that asks. I don't know if there are any website for reviews on law firms, but if there is let me know so I can say how excellent your firm is."

The Ticket Clinic was able to get my case together quickly and get me the best deal I could have asked for. The DUI charges were dropped. The Ticket Clinic was able to put me at ease during one of the hardest times of my life." Sinead - "The Ticket Clinic was professional and in constant contact with me from the first phone called, until the case was closed. To make a long story short, I was not convicted of a DUI - since then, I referred a friend to the Ticket Clinic." Richard - "I was faced with a DUI. Most people fear jail, but I heard that it would ruin my record for life. This can cost you a job, credit, relationships. The more we are an online world the more your record is available to the public - a DUI stays forever. The Ticket Clinic didn’t settle, but successfully defended my DUI case. They are the only ones I would trust confidently with a serious matter." Dave - "I was face with an unjust DUI and called The Ticket Clinic to represent me. I was never faced with such a serious situation before. TTC’s professionalism, confidence and knowledge put me at ease, knowing I was in good hands. As I went through this ordeal, TTC was on top of everything and brought this to closure quite quickly. TTC has also helped me find a lawyer in another state for a friend in a similar situation. I highly recommend The Ticket Clinic!" Scott - "I was facing a DUI charge but TTC got my charges dismissed, even though I submitted to a breath test! I would recommend them to anyone facing a DUI. Thank you again for everything." Kiersen - "I was pleased to receive your letter of February 21, 2017 advising me that all charges against me were dismissed by the Court.
