I got a DUI and shopped around for the "best" attorney, not the cheapest attorney. A conviction for DUI would have mean I would lose my job. Derek Byrd fought for me every step of the way. I never lost my drivers license and ultimately all charges were dismissed. I highly recommend Mr. Byrd and his firm.
I would describe my experience with Derek Byrd's office as first class! The staff was professional, office was beautiful, and I received excellent representation. My calls were always returned promptly, my questions always answered, and my desired outcome was achieved. If you have been arrested, I highly recommend you hire Derek Byrd. His representation is well deserved!
I was told that Derek Byrd was the best criminal defense lawyer in Sarasota. They were right! I had a serious drug charge and was facing prison. Everyone, including several other lawyers I spoke with, told me I was going to jail. Derek fought for me and, as a result, all charges were dismissed. I owe that guy my life!
