I have used attorney Rudman's services several times, each time he is very knowledgeable and puts your mind at ease, I am a good judge of character and i can really tell that he has your best interests at heart and genuinely wants to help you, Doug loves what he does hes passionate about that and he loves his trade and that spills over and and shows in the quality of his work, his tremendous success rate in his cases and his practice flourishes, he really does his best to put your mind at ease and fights hard to come out on top for your case, if in doubt go to D. Rudman and his associates you wont be disappointed.
Doug explained from the beginning the process, he and his staff did everything they promised, he kept me informed and we had a positive outcome. I would recommend Doug a Rudman as a attorney to choose to defend you and protect your rights. He knows his way around the courthouse and is well liked and respected.
If you are looking for a criminal lawyer whom actually cares about his client and their well being, Attorney Rudman should be your choice. He works especially hard for his clients, is very knowledgeable, kind and courteous, and actually returns calls promptly. As a matter of fact, Attorney Rudman called me with updates on Labor Day at 6 pm. He went above and beyond in my brothers criminal case with a favorable outcome. He is a former prosecutor , and knows both sides of the courtroom well. Also, his office staff is amazing! They were a pleasure to deal with and never made me feel like I was inconveniencing them with my numerous, weekly calls. When I did call or email to check the case status, Attorney Rudman called back immediately, whether he was in the office or not. In my opinion, he is an exceptional lawyer, and if he is on your case, you can consider yourself lucky. We had no hope for my brothers case until we met Doug.
Mr. Rudman is very knowledgable and willing to take on my case with full confidence that my case would not be pursued. Mr. Rudman was understanding of my financial situation and is not one of those attorneys that nickel and dimes you. His staff was attentive to your needs when Mr. Rudman was buisy in court or others clients and would relay all messages to him. Mr. Rudman would always return your call within a reasonable time frame. After my case was dropped Mr. Rudman immediately returned my remaining fund as quickly as possible. I highly recommend Mr. Rudman and staff.
In 2012 I found myself in the biggest jam of my life. I was looking at a felony charge and was sent to prison. Had to stay over night. After getting out I was on the look for a GOOD lawyer who will not steal my money, who would be completely honest with me and stay by my side through it all. This is when I came across Doug. I called his office and the conversation we had was amazing and I ended the call feeling confident that I had found someone who was going to HONESTLY take care of MY situation and not the other way around. To even say a bit more when I first went by his office I was with my 2 year old son (at that time) and Doug and his wife treated him with so much care and allowed him to be a 2 year old boy (playing with Doug's golf clubs and golf balls; Doug even gave my son a stuffed bear, which he still has, and gave him and my oldest daughter, whom wasn't there, chocolate. I know it may not mean much to you but it will when you're in a jam like I was (and even if you aren't) - it still feels nice to find someone who is still as humble as Doug & his wife (and staff!)
Long story short (bc I can keep on with great compliments) - my case was DISMISSED and thanks to Doug I was able to breathe again and never be away from my 2 kids ever again!!!!!
That being said he is still a really great friend of mine and he continues to save me from my errors but I'm happy to say my "errors" or now simply speeding tickets :-)
I am and will always be grateful to him.
I recommend DOUG J RUDMAN to anyone I know and to those I do not know - if I hear you say "I need a GOOD/EXCELLENT lawyer to be by their side...." I would jump in and say - HIRE DOUG!!!
PS: This is NOT a scam and I do not work for Doug Rudman
I was charged with DUI about a month or so ago and Doug was recommended to me by a very dear friend. I looked him up, called the office, made an appointment and then BOOM. I told Doug the exact details of my DUI & driving w/o headlights charged. I was immediately comfortable and as he read over my ticket in detail Doug jumps out of his seat with joy because he noticed the ticket that was written was incorrect and pullled out the florida law book and showed me how the statue is correctly written, just by looking at a number. i was in awe of how quickly he responded and knew he was extremely knowledgeable about the law. As i was pulled over in a parking lot my ticket stated i was driving w/o headlights on a highway and/or roadway that is not illegal and Doug became so excited for my case and gave me a high five. He told me my options and what he believed would happen. Well let me tell you, Doug and his team had ALL CHARGES DROPPED the first appearance in court. I highly recommend Doug as a lawyer he truly wants justice for you! Thank you so much Doug!!!
Mr. Rudman was very honest with me and my fiancé about the different outcomes that were possible a result of a pre trial violation for a drug charge. We can not begin to express our gratitude to him for the amazing outcome that he was able to get. Even with the violation he was still able to have the charges dropped and my fiancé is now a free man. He was a great person to deal with, very pleasent and professional. Every penny that we paid to him was worth it ....tho feel we owe him so much more! I would definatly recommend him and would not call anyone else but him if I was in this situation again!
I HIGHLY recommend Doug. I've had a few speeding tickets over the years. I've used several of the popular traffic ticket firms advertised on the radio. I ended up paying fines and paying my lawyer. I never spoke directly to my attorney, always an assistant, by phone or in-person. Attorney Doug Rudman turned my entire experience upside down. HE called me. HE met me in person. HE kept me informed of the status. And in the end, HE got my ticket dismissed!! Based on his representation for my traffic ticket, if I ever had another matter that he could handle, no doubt I would hire him to represent me. I highly recommend Attorney Doug Rudman to anyone reading this review.
Douglas did an amazing job at handling my traffic ticket. Even with a bad driving record he managed to get the case dismissed with no fines or points. In addition he was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend working with Douglas .
I hired this office to fight a speeding ticket for me. I was a little hesitant about my choice because there were many less expensive options out there. But based on my conversations with them I believed that they would put in the effort to deliver the best possible results in my case - and they did - and I am thrilled with the results. I am also happy with their level of communication - both Mr. Luis Cartaya (the lawyer I communicated with) and the office staff (Cristiane and Heather) answered all my questions promptly and thoroughly and kept me informed throughout - even Mr. Rudman himself (he represented me in court) reached out to me a couple of times. I would definitely recommend and would definitely hire them again.
