In September of 2014, I made a big mistake and got behind the wheel after a couple glasses of wine. I was pulled over and subsequently arrested for DUI, my first run in with the law. It was the most traumatic experience of my life. Once I began to look for a lawyer, I stumbled upon this site. Flo had not only so many more reviews than other Austin DUI lawyers, but it appeared every single one of her reviews was extremely positive and painted her in a light that I had to at least schedule a consultation. I visited another lawyer prior to meeting with Flo, but knew as soon as I walked out of her office that she would fight for me and give me the best chance at a good outcome. Flo is blunt and tells it like it is, but her credentials truly speak for themselves. In the end, my DUI charge was reduced to a deferred speeding ticket, so I will have absolutely nothing on my record. I was so happy that she was able to achieve such a great outcome. She is by far the best at what she does, so don't waste your time or money going with anyone else. Her rate is comparable to others so you'd be a fool to choose anyone other than Flo. Thank you Flo!
In a nutshell, Ms. Rueda was simply awesome. She presents herself with the type of confidence and intelligence you would expect from your criminal defense attorney. In my case, she immediately put in the effort and footwork which resulted in an unbelievable turnaround of less than 24 hours. That's from the time that I met her until walking out of the courtroom! My only regret is that I wish i would have found her sooner, before hiring my prior representation. Since, I have and will continue to recommend her to others caught in unfortunate situations.
Unfortunately I've had to use a few attorneys in my day, Florencia Rueda was my fifth lawyer to work with and has definitely been my favorite and the only one I've found that I truly feel like I could trust.
When you call the office's number Florencia herself will answer a significant majority of the time. never did I have to speak with some random receptionist and explain my situation to them. Her prices were more than fair and I felt like for the first time at attorney actually took the time to listen and also provided satisfactory feedback to my questions.
I'd absolutely hire Attorney Florencia Rueda again for any criminal cases in Austin, Texas; no questions asked if I need a criminal attorney.
She's also very personable, easy to speak with, non judgemental, and just an all around great person and even better attorney.
I am a student from Dallas who got my second DWI while in Austin for the weekend. I felt like I could call Ms Rueda with any question at any time. She managed to get my DWI case dismissed. No fines, court costs, or probation. The only time I had to go down to Austin was to see my sobriety test footage. Extremely trustworthy.
Im a CDL Driver and she (Florencia) and Duke help me to Dismiss my Offense to failed to signal lane change.
Soy un Chofer comercial y ella ( Florencia y Duke) me ayudaron a disolver la i infraccion de cambio de linea.
Florencia and Duke are wonderful. I was facing a felony charge. Florencia told me not to worry, that it would certainly be dismissed. Her confidence and knowledge is very reassuring. After only a few months my case was indeed dismissed.
After a successful freshman year at UT, I thought my son was on a smooth path to graduation and a bright future. Well, it all came crashing down with a bit of bad judgment and a DWI arrest.
I called Florencia without a clue how to proceed and not much hope. Florencia clearly explained the process, her strategies, and what to expect. She was very communicative, after a few meetings with my son, a few phone calls, and a few emails … well, she basically handled everything.
My son will be attending some classes, doing some community service, and in the end will NOT have a DWI conviction on his record.
A DWI arrest and conviction is very expensive. Based on my calculations, Florencia’s service was a fraction of the cost of pleading guilty.
Thank you Florencia, you are a life saver.
When it asks if you would recommend this lawyer, I already have to every person I run into whenever DWI is brought up. Florencia is the best lawyer I have ever used. She made no promises she could not keep, she kept to her word. She is hard working and does call you or waste your time, as her time is just as valuable. She follows up when needs to and does not leave you hanging. She turned my life around as a 2nd dwi in less than 5 years would have been a huge problem. Case dismissed, .108 breath.
When I was arrested for a DWI this past July, I was convinced it was the end of the world. As an aspiring teacher, I knew this would be a huge red flag to any school district and would be detrimental to securing a teaching position. First, I met with an attorney from the law firm that handled my personal bail, I left their office feeling worse than when I went in. To them, I was just another dollar sign. The whole meeting was impersonal, sterile, and scripted. I went home and did a little research. I went to the AVVO website and found dozens of positive reviews for Florencia Rueda. I decided to set up an appointment, and am so glad I did. Flo is a down to earth, compassionate, straight-forward lawyer, who wants to win! She was always easy to get in touch with, easy to talk to, and always kept me informed on the developments of my case. With Flo on my side, I could breathe, I slept better at night, and had hope that I would get past this and continue down my career path. As of Dec. 4, my case was dismissed! Flo was such a blessing, and I will be forever grateful for her. If you need a lawyer, look no further.
Florencia was incredibly responsive in my case and was thankfully able to get my charges reduced. She always got back to me whenever I had any questions regarding the case within 24 hours and made the entire process much less painless.
