The best!
Long standing dispute with DHSMV over a DUI/refusal to submit. Mr Meadows put me in touch with person who was able to get DMV off my back quickly. Was worth every penny of his fee. Plus a real nice guy! Highly recommend!

DUI / traffic violations/ Charlotte
Lee Meadows has been a great lawyer and consultant for my son and kept us updated with information regarding his case. He is very professional, knows exactly what steps to take representing his clients, makes himself available to answer questions and explain law terminology for a greater understanding of the process taking place. I couldn’t be more pleased with how much he helped my son and our family. I definitely would recommend him for his services.

DUI Representation
If you are in trouble and being charged with a DUI in Tallahassee, Florida, do not waste any time and pick up the phone and call Attorney Lee Meadows. Lee is the best Attorney in your corner to handle your DUI situation. I was in a serious DUI situation and Lee took my case with the experience that was needed to represent me with the best possible outcome. His guidance saved me from a lot of fear and heart ache. Not only does he know the ropes, but he is an attorney gunslinger that knows how to challenge the DUI system to represent you. Make no mistake, he will take care of you and represent you to the fullest in your situation.

Mr. Meadows hit it out of the park
We hired Mr. Meadows to represent our college student in an alleged DUI case that also involved a threatened driver license suspension and the potential for university discipline. Mr. Meadows succeeded in obtaining a dismissal of the alleged DUI charge, overturning the driver license suspension, and avoiding serious university discipline. Mr. Meadows is also working to obtain an expungement of the alleged DUI charge. Like a "one stop shop," Mr. Meadows successfully handled the alleged DUI charge and the related matters that arose from it. Most importantly, he got excellent results all along the way. Throughout the process, Mr. Meadows was kind, patient, always available when needed, generous with his time, and explained the process and available options in an easily understandable way. We were so glad someone recommended Mr. Meadows to us, and now we are paying it forward by highly recommending him to you.

Best lawyer out there!
After a series of bad decisions a few years ago, I lost my drivers license. I was labeled a habitual traffic offender and getting my license back wouldn’t be easy. I had been researching traffic lawyers, talked to many offices, and finally my gut instinct told me to go with Lee Meadows (which I am so glad I did!). He is no-nonsense, very honest, professional, AND caring. The process wasn’t fast and there were a lot of moving parts — all of which he took care of. I ultimately got my driver’s license back and I am so grateful. It is amazing how a good lawyer can change your life.

Dui lowered reckless driving
I cannot thank Mr. Meadows enough for his time and patience with my case. Other lawyers turned down taking on my case because they said there was nothing they could do but Mr. Meadows decided to take on the challenge. Would highly recommend contacting him if having any legal troubles especially a possible dui conviction.

Lee is the best and I'd recommend him to anyone!
Lee Meadows is a fantastic lawyer and I am so glad that he was the one I worked through this process with. He was on top of things the whole time, in spite of many delays and issues due to covid. Lee was always extremely patient and kind and made sure that I understood everything that was going on. He always answered my questions quickly and never made me feel like they were a nuisance. Lee's calm and confident demeanor helped me get through this very difficult time and I always felt like my case was in good hands. He worked tirelessly so that the best outcome could be achieved, and I felt like he truly had my best interest in mind. I really appreciated the way he was involved in all aspects of my case and never left me to fend for myself. Lee consistently followed up and checked in with me throughout this process, and is still doing so, even when some attorneys would consider their job finished and stop helping. His office staff is also wonderful to work with and they were always very kind and respectful whenever I talked to them. I truly cannot say enough good things about Lee and would recommend him without a moment's hesitation. He is incredibly good at his job, helped me to achieve the outcome I wanted in my case, and was an absolute joy to work with!

Lee Meadows Made a Horrible Situation Go Away
My son made a horrible mistake that could have cost him his job and ruined his life! We were referred to Lee and I am so very thankful! Lee's professional manner and expertise soon had the charges completely dismissed and he was friendly and concerned and gave my son some very good, strong advice too. I will always recommend Lee if anyone needs help with a DUI or anything else.
