Candidly, I've used other attorney's before for various legal matters. And commonly, it's not always a pleasant experience based on the popular negative stereotypes of attorneys. Writing reviews are not something I do everyday, but Attorney Doug Rudman is someone that really stands out from the noisy crowd of lawyers. You can pay less and you can pay more, but my life experiences have proven to me that you get what you pay for. About a month ago on a sunny Sunday morning, I was driving from Palm Beach South to Miami on the Florida Turnpike following friends in several other cars. It was a perfect sunny day, but an hour long drive and about 3 miles before the exit we were looking for to get off the Turnpike, there were 6 troopers pulling people over and handing out tickets. 5 of these troopers already had people pulled over and the one waiting let the friends of mine in the four vehicles in front of me pass (we were travelling at the same speed), and he pulled me over. (They may have also liked my bright blue car). The trooper explains that aircraft used a stop watch and claimed I was travelling 91/60. 31 miles over. This is a bad ticket, and in the State of Florida it's considered a misdemeanor offense to drive in excess of 30 miles over the posted speed limit. I was extremely courteous with the Trooper and explained I did not believe I was travelling that fast, but he still gave me a ticket which required a mandatory court appearance because of the 30+ speed. After doing some research, I found Attorney Doug Rudman. The most important fact that motivated me to hire Doug is his previous experience as a Florida State Prosecutor. There is a certain decorum, and culture among lawyers, judges and law enforcement, and the experience of working as a prosecutor no doubt gives Doug an incredible advantage to speak and negotiate on behalf of his clients in the most favorable light, and surely increases the likelihood that you will have the most favorable outcome to your case. Doug provided me with a personal consultation by phone, immediately pointed out a statutory fault of the traffic citation and promised me he would do everything he could to resolve. I'm happy to say he called me yesterday to confirm he successfully negotiated in court on Wednesday with the Trooper, and was able to get the Trooper to agree to dismiss the traffic citation completely. My sincerest gratitude to Doug, and my personal recommendation to anyone else to hire him to help you for any Criminal Defense or Traffic Citation matter (Speeding Tickets etc.)
Great experience. I visited their offices. met with Luis Cartaya, gave him my ticket and just as he promised the firm took care of it from there on out. I got updates, and never had to worry about it. I'd recommend them to any one. Very reliable and efficient, really nice people too!
If you are in need of an attorney....look no further. This man will help you every step of the way. He is as honest as they come. He is not the typical stereotype of atty. He actually cares for the client and the money he/she is spending for legal advice. He tells you what you are facing and what he can and can't do for you.
Anyone in trouble should call Doug Rudman before looking anywhere else.
Without Doug I would probably still be sitting in jail for a violation of my probation. His office is extremely professional and welcoming. I highly recommend Doug if you are looking for an attorney who truly cares about you and wants to help you out. He was able to meet me over the weekend and within a week my probation was reinstated.
I couldn't have chose a better lawyer to assist me with a serious professional allegation. I researched and interviewed several lawyers prior to meeting Mr. Rudman. Having dealt in the past with other lawyers he stands out from the rest in all areas, from being extremely knowledgable, responsive, trustworthy and keeping me informed throughout the whole process of my case. If this isn't enough, he is genuine in his concern as well as shows respect to you as an individual whatever your situation. The same goes for all of his office staff. That just does not happen by mistake. They exemplify Mr. Rudman's attributes in all areas. Mr. Rudman and his staff worked diligently to achieve what I consider to be a highly favorable outcome concerning my case. I would not hesitate to recommend him to my family or friends which says a lot about his character. Additionally, should I need a lawyer for any other services that he may not provide I would not hesitate to utilize another lawyer that he endorses and recommends. That's how highly I think about him not only as a professional but an individual.
i can say with the utmost confidence, that after working with lawyers for years, that Mr. Rudman is
Extremely intelligent with full knowledge of the law along with concern and caring for his clients.
My son was arrested and charged with a felony. After a search for the right attorney, we chose Doug Rudman. It was without a doubt the best decision we could have made. Doug is a strong attorney and one I would not hesitate to use if I ever needed a defense attorney again. Doug was able to maneuver the legal waters and not only get the felony downgraded, but ultimately had the entire case dismissed. I am forever grateful for his persistence and professionalism. I was shocked how quickly Doug returned our calls to make sure we always knew what was happening at any given time. All I can say is, don't settle for anything but the best. Contact Doug Rudman! You won't regret it.
Douglas Rudman has helped our family with many things, mostly traffic tickets and he always delivers the best price and results. Most times the case is completely dropped with no points and he does it for such a reasonable fee! I would reccommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer for anything, not just traffic tickets. He is the best in the business and knows everyone at the courthouse so that is helpful as well! We love Douglas!
I would highly recommend using Douglas to assist with traffic violations and criminal matters. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional, yet personable. Having been a prosecutor, he knows the system and uses that knowledge to obtain great results for his clients. He was able to get my ticket dismissed! In sum. Douglas is a great attorney and even better person, who truly cares about his clients.
Unfortunately I had a bad situation with the law. I have to say that Douglas Rudman was an amazing help to my case, he was completely honest with me since the beginning, told me what could and could not happen to me such as the timing that was going to take to drop all my charges. Happily he is one of the best lawyers I have ever met. Douglas called me two days after I signed the contract with him and told me all my charges had been dropped. I appreciate everything he has done for me and I reffer him to everybody.
