    • I recommend L. Byrd.
    • I hired L. Byrd 1-3 years ago.
    • L. Byrd handled my DUI / DWI matter.

    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.

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!
