    • I recommend Aaron Wayt.
    • Aaron handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was a college student living in Tallahassee when I was unfortunately arrested at a D.U.I check point. I was on my own, very nervous and facing an uphill battle. I spoke with Mr. Wayt shortly after and decided he was the man for the job. Mr. Wayt worked with me for a long time on getting this case resolved. I blew a .16 and got it down to a reckless driving. Mr. Wayt had me convinced from the start that we had a good case, even if there were several things that made me very nervous going into it.

    As time went on Mr. Wayt was responsive to my major questions. Sometimes he was not immediately available but was always able to get back to me when he could. I can imagine he is very busy with the success he has had. So I was never worried if it took a day to get back to me and if you're reading this review, you should not either.

    I will admit I was extremely nervous going into this case. Being someone who has never been on this side of the law before, I was definitely freaking out. I felt much better after I stepped into the courtroom with Mr. Wayt and saw the amount of respect his peer lawyers gave him. Everyone seemed to be very happy to talk to him and he carries himself very well in the court room. Which I believe is a major plus for an attorney when talking to a jury.

    Mr. Wayt was very good with jury selection as well, he talked to me about the jurors and we even worked together a little bit on picking them. Obviously everything was his call but it certainly felt good to have an opinion on my own case. As nervous as I was, it was very calming to be able to talk to him about the jurors and what they were like and who we thought we wanted, which is what I believe he was trying to do. I was a hassle for him with phone calls and worry. He was also very reassuring the whole time. It also helped that he killed it with his opening jury argument. I could see what he was doing after he described to me his plan. He laid it out extremely well and I believe it’s what helped get my case down to a reckless.

    All in all, Mr. Wayt is a very good and honest man. He certainly helped me out a great deal and kept in contact with me after the case. He followed up and overall I was very pleased with how he handled the entire case.

    • I recommend Aaron Wayt.
    • I hired Aaron 1-3 years ago.
    • Aaron handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Aaron Wayt and the Office of Don Pumphrey handled my case beyond my expectations. Going through a DUI has been one of the toughest things I've dealt with in my life. Aaron and the office helped me make it through this tough time by giving their all to my case. From day one Aaron was nothing but helpful and did everything he could to assist me. He was able to get my DUI charge not only dropped to a wreckless driving charge but also had the wreckless charge withheld. I could not be happier with the outcome of my case and I would recommend Aaron Wayt to anyone struggling to get through a DUI.

    • Aaron handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Attorney Wayt represented me with fighting my 2nd DUI case, which went to trail. No pleas were offered being that the prosecuting attorney felt it was an easy win. I blew over twice the legal limit, the field sobriety test was admitted into evidence, and both officers on the scene plus the breathalyzer test inspector were all called in to testify. With all the evidence against me, Aaron convinced 6 jurors that I was "NOT GUILTY" of DUI and my case was completely dropped. Almost every attorney in Tallahassee refused to take on my case, but Aaron is a miracle worker. A person would have to be insane to not seek the Aaron Wayt and the Law Office of Don Pumphrey Jr. to represent them on their DUI case or any other case for that matter. He is a beast in the courtroom and you will definitely get your money's worth and the best representation you can find in Tallahassee hands down.

    Aaron was a great help during my case. With his thorough knowledge of law, we were able to file a motion on my behalf to dismiss charges based incorrect statements made by the arresting officer. I would recommend his services to anyone in the Tallahassee area!

    During one of the toughest periods of my life and in the midst of a foreign situation, I had no idea what I could/would do. Hiring/working with Aaron was the best decision I could've made. Aaron is dependable, knowledgable, and treats his clients with the upmost respect and professionalism. Most importantly, he keeps your best interest at heart and suggests as if he was in your shoes. Without question, I would recommend Aaron for handling your case!

    If you want the job done effectively, then you need to hire Mr. Wayt.
    He is also very personable. Mr Wayt will speak to you not down at you. I realized after seeing him in court, in action, how well educated he truly is. In my eyes, he's already an excellent lawyer.
