Mrs. Goldman is a compassionate, hard-working attorney who I was
most fortunate to have found in my time of need. Mrs. Goldman was
my voice when I had none as I faced a possible Felony charge that
could have resulted in my serving time in state prison.
Mrs. Goldman’s timely intervention helped avert a more serious,
disastrous outcome, and as such has protected my rights and my
freedom by advising me on what I need to do to stay out of trouble.
While there remains a few open issues that have been spawned by
my criminal arrest, Mrs. Goldman continues to be attentive and
responsive to these collateral damages from my criminal arrest, and
continues to demonstrate her legal prowess through active
participation in the many facets of my “legal grief”.
Are you looking for THE attorney who really listens, genuinely wants
to help you, AND gets results? Then look no further, Attorney
Summer Goldman should be your attorney too.

Summer Goldman of Goldman and Wetzel was one of a few attorneys who was referred to me by family friends after i was charged with a DUI. After meeting with each of the Attorneys i could tell the Summer's firm was my best shot of beating a conviction. She was very knowledgable and passionate about her work. After each meeting with Summer i left her office feeling confidant, not defeated as most would facing a serious charge and a tough case to try in court. The process of a DUI is long and the ability to contact your attorney and have a response in a timely manner is very important. Summer and her staff were always just a phone call away. The end result of this case, was in my opinion the best case scenario. Summer was able to to get me a deal that in my research and referals is almost impossible. Even the judge was impressed with what Summer was able to work out with the State Attorneys Office. I am very thankful that i had Summer on my side. I would highly recommend her without question to anyone facing not only a DUI case but any criminal charges.

I was wrongfully accused of being a threat to a teenager of the family I married into. When sentenced the Injunction, my panic was relieved immediately after meeting with Summer. She listened, very carefully to my story. She cared. Then she began to nearly, teach me sections of the law that adhere to my case. Then her presence in the court room was like nothing else! She impressed the Judge. She is amazing and never left me out in the dark. I never felt alone, and she was sensitive to my fragile state. I am so grateful for having met her!!

Summer Goldman from Goldman & Wetzel helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life and I don’t know what I would have done without her. She is experienced and familiar with the court system and she also knew all the right people including the judge and state attorney. She went above and beyond and was always available to answer my questions and help me. Her cost was minimal compared to what she saved me in the long run. I would very highly recommend her to my closest friends and anyone in need of a great lawyer. Her partner Beth Wetzel is also a very highly skilled lawyer and having them as a team was invaluable. Basically, they saved me. If you need legal help just call Summer Goldman, you'll be very glad you did.

I STRONGLY Recommend Goldman Wetzel! Summer Goldman and Beth Wetzel took my case, although it was complicated, and did an amazing job with it, and still do to this day! They made me very comfortable, relaxed, and constantly provided me with honest re-assurance of my concerns. They made me feel like a person, not a number. I will never use another Attorney after working with them. They are amazing, and that is the only word strong enough to describe both of them. If you need an attorney, I strongly encourage you to contact them first before anyone else.

In the spring of 2011 I ran into some legal issues with the state of Florida concerning a DUI. I called Summer and asked if she would help me through it. She did everything for me from calming me down from the initial fears to getting me through the legal process. She is very professional and kind. Summer was always a phone call or email away from answering any questions I had and actually took the time to tell me when and how to handle the issues that would come up during the long process of a DUI conviction. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a lawyer.

Summer was referred to me from a family friend. When we first met I was a little taken back at how informative she was. She made sure to give me the facts without the fluff. Why that was so important to me was because she never gave me false hope. Summer called when necessary but did not innundate me with frivolous meetings and conversations that would not be pertinent to my case. My favorite part of this whole process was the ending. When I was informed by numerous sources that the results of my case should not have happened and that I was extremely fortunate. I began to realize that it was not luck at all. The results were driven by Summer Goldman who behind the scenes made things happen without putting worry or stress on me and my family. For that I will always be indebted to Summer and her team and would refer Summer to anyone that would listen.
Thank you Summer

I would highly recommend this lawyer! She did a great job, was very understanding and helpful. Being my second Dui, I thought for sure I was getting jail time but ended up with none! Hire Mrs. Goldman, you will not regret it!

I took a great deal of time when searching for my representation. Before I decided to go with Summer Goldman I spoke with approximately 7-8 different lawyers. Summer Goldman (Goldman Wetzel, PLLC) was the best in terms of understanding my situation and I felt basically there was more attention to my concerns than any other attorney I shared my case with. I was confident someone was "on my side" rather than simply going through the process/motions.
I'm 100% confident about referring my clients, family, and friends to Goldman Wetzel, PLLC in the future for representation.

Ms. Goldman has handled several cases for my family and me over the years. Before utilizing her services we had previous experience with other attorneys in the Tampa Bay Area. This experience assisted us in our evaluation of the work Ms. Goldman performed on our behalf.
Ms. Goldman made us aware of the best and worst case outcome of the cases at all times. We were never made empty promises. The only promise ever made was that we would get the attention we deserved and receive a thorough, hard fought defense. Not only did Ms. Goldman keep that promise, but delivered far above and beyond what we could have ever expected.
Ms. Goldman is professional and courteous at all times. She manages the case very effectively and never goes into court unprepared. Sometimes walking into court is very scary but you have confidence appearing before a judge with Ms. Goldman by your side.
Another thing that you rarely find in Ms. Goldman's profession is compassion. She understands the aspect of family and how criminal problems can affect not just the person charged with a crime, it can have lasting effects on all of their loved ones. Ms. Goldman truly cares about her clients and wants you to have a prosperous future after the mistakes we make are put behind us.
There is no question who I would refer for Criminal Defense to any family, friends or associates in need of these services. I hope I never need a Criminal Defense attorney again but if I do, I recommend Ms. Goldman. Sometimes criminal charges can affect your lives forever and or many years to come. If I or my loved ones are ever in need again, I put my trust and future in the hands of Ms. Goldman. I know she will always provide an aggressive, strategic and thorough defense on our behalf.

Summer immediately grasped the situation I was in and went to work right away to clear my name and stop prosecution of the false accusations that were being thrown about by my wife in a contested divorce/child custody case. Summer always returned my phone calls promptly and kept me well informed each step of the way. No charges were ever filed against me and the state dropped it's investigation. Summer is an outstanding attorney!
