Kevin did a fantastic job for me. I recommend him highly.
Posted by Kevin, a DUI client, Flag
An extremely knowledgeable attorney who simultaneously managed charges in three separate counties for me, where the results in one court had merit on proceedings in the next. Mr. Hayslett skillfully managed proceedings in all three courts, arguing for, and receiving extensions so the timing would be most favorable for me. While working in all three courts he provided me direction on how to mitigate my interrelated issues. He is a hands on attorney who takes the time to personally deal with and understand his client’s needs and I recommend Mr. Hayslett’ service without reservation.

I retained Mr. Hayslett for a DUI charge that I received this past February. I would highly recommend Mr. Hayslett as he always made me feel at ease and I never left his office with unanswered questions or concerns. He was up front and never gave me misleading information. If questions would arise, as they frequently did, his assistant or himself would always get back to me in a timely manner. He is a very caring and personable attorney. I just went to court and the DUI charge was dropped to reckless driving. I am extremely happy with the out come.

Excellent lawyer. Made everything fast, efficient, and very easy! I will definitely be using Kevin again in the future for all of my legal needs.

Mr. Hayslett was incredibly professional and helpful throughout the duration of my case. He was able to get my DUI (second offense) reduced to a reckless and the conviction for my refusal to blow was overturned. Also, he was very helpful in getting my hardship license. I am very grateful for his services!

When he predicted how long my case may drag out, I was skeptical. However, he kept me calm throughout the process and it went down exactly like he had predicted. We ended up getting the misdemeanor result we were looking for. With his great experience and broad local contacts, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kevin to any of my friends in need.

Mr. Hayslett handled my case with extreme care and professionalism right from my first visit to his office. I found him to be a very knowledgebale and caring person who understands his client's concerns. All through the process, I was fully kept informed of the progress of the case and he made sure that he was available to me via telephone, email, or face-to-face meeting whenever I had a question to ask of him. I greatly appreciated that. I am very glad that I made the right decision to hire Mr. Hayslett to handle my case.

I retained Kevin Hayslett for a couple a drinking related traffic violations. In both cases the charges were reduced. He was able to orchestrate a leaving the scene of an accident charge into careless driving with no points on my driving record. In a more recent incident, a DUI charge miraculously ended up being reckless driving. I technically never lost my driving priveledges (for a few days when waiting for the DMV decision) which was amazing. I highly recommend this attorney.

Kevin is thorough and as knowledgeable as any attorney I have ever had dealings with. He counts me not only as a client but a friend. I have his personal contact info and I know that I can call him no matter what time of day,and he will be there for me. Many times it is for free advice. To have an attorney like that is priceless.

He is an exceptional lawyer. I never had to show up in court he handled both cases for me with excellent results. Superior lawyer with a job well done. I have hired over 20 lawyers and Mr. Hayslett rates on the top.

SAVED MY LIFE-
I was charged with a extremely indefensible DUI Manslaughter charge.
I had made admissions and the police had 2 eye witnesses
who testified against me. Mr. Hayslett was brilliant. His courtroom presentation was out of a movie. Let's put it this way after the trial I SAW a juror ask for his business card.
He spent way more time than I had paid for- took my case personally and got an acquittal. He never stopped fighting for me. I'm married and have a son that I never would have had without his help. In my opinion he's simply the best lawyer anywhere. I truely can never adequately thank him for my tenacity and attention to detail. He still calls me to check up on me.
If someone is comparing Mr. Hayslett to other lawyers , Don't. You can't. I've had my share of lawyers and was raised watching my mother deal with a multitude of different lawyers and law firms large and small. Mr. Hayslett surpasses them all.
Yes he was my lawyer. Yes he saved my life.
He also became my life long friend.

I was charged with a DUI. I was referred to Mr. Hayslett. He helped me tremendously. The communication from he and his staff was terrific. Mr. Hayslett helped seal my DUI and remove it from my record.

I was treated extremely well.! I had previously never needed a lawyer or needless to say been to any type of court . With Mr Hayslett I felt like I was handled professionally, knowledgeably, and maybe most important compassionately. With Kevin, my mind was put at ease and my case was handled flawlessly with the best possible outcome.
After my legal experience I find it necessary to have a great attorney and for my money Mr Hayslett is the best. I think it is important to have an attorney who takes your individual case as serious as you do. I found this to be true with Kevin and I am very grateful I made the decision to retain him and if you decide to hire him I am positive you will feel the same.

Having Kevin represent me in my case was a very positive experience, he is very professional, thorough and knowledgeable. I have the highest regards for Kevin and highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal representation.

This online questionnaire asks if I would recommend Kevin. But the most accurate answer isn't "Yes, I would," but rather, "Yes, I have." And I wouldn't have recommended him if I didn't believe he was a great attorney. Kevin is a consummate professional and actually lives up to his exceptional reputation. On multiple occasions in the courtroom, while we were waiting for our turn, the judge would actually ask Kevin for advice or clarification on certain statues related to other cases that he or she was unclear about. The first time it happened, my confidence in him spiked. The second time it happened with another judge, I was blown away. My entire experience with Kevin was superior and the outcome was far better than I expected. I'm still amazed by his performance.

Mr. Hayslett is hands down, the best criminal defense attorney in America today. I've been erroneously charged with crimes by overzealous prosecutors for political reasons and Mr. Hayslett has been able to overcome the power of the state and the media bias against me to prevail at actual jury trial. His closing was both persuasive and a masterpiece of lawyering. Mr. Hayslett's handling of pre-trial motions preserved great issues for appeal in case I was convicted. The legal knowledge and preparation for trial showed as I was acquitted in 50 minutes. If you need a criminal lawyer, call Mr. Hayslett as fast as you can.

Great communication!!! Very efficient! First person i call for any legal advice or service. I would never go to another lawyer! Have worked with him for years now.

Kevin Hayseltt helped me out with my felony DUI case and got my sentenced reduced drastically. My family and I couldn't have asked for a better attorney who kept us in the loop and informed us of not just "the best" option but every option available. Everytime I called, he answered. And anytime I was concerned, attorney Kevin Hayslett always put my fears to rest based on not what I wanted to hear, but what I needed to hear. I'd recommend Kevin to anyone with any legal issue.

Mr. Hayslett was extremely professional and personable. He and his staff made frequent contact with me and always kept me informed on the status of my case. Mr. Hayselett helped protect my rights and I urge anyone looking for an attorney to hire him.

I got a DUI and hired Kevin Hayslett - I was told by my family attorney that he was the best. Kevin made the process very easy and he (and his team) kept me well informed every step of the way. Needless to say, my wife and I were very worried that I might have my license taken away, which would have resulted in my getting fired. In the end Kevin got my case dismissed. While I hope I will never need his services in the future - I would certainly suggest him to anyone I know….he is a true expert!
Thanks Kevin for your hard work and excellent outcome!

Mr Hayslett handled my DUI case. It took some time to resolve but he managed to get it reduced. He and his staff were great. I was able to reach my lawyer and his paralegal via phone and email. Communication was great. I would recommend Kevin Hayslett

I paid a lot of money to have Mr Haylett represent me on my DUI case,
I was told by him, that the case will be transfer to South Pinellas County court house, because he knows the Judge,
Never did anything that proved that he is a good attorney... I was charge with a DUI and he refused to go a trial.
