Aaron Wayt is the best. Helped me through a stressful time and helped me receive a not guilty verdict for my DUI case. Professional, understanding and great at what he does. Will definitely recommend Aaron to my fellow school mates.

Going into my case, I was incredibly overwhelmed as it was my first encounter with the system. But during our initial consultation, Aaron made sure to give me a detailed description of my options and what the trajectory of the case would look like. From that initial consultation, Aaron handled everything with the case. On the one hand it was comforting, as I didn't have to worry about anything; but on the other, I often wondered if there was something I should be doing and worried if I had failed to do something correctly. Unfortunately, much of the legal system consists of "hurry up and wait." For the client prone to worry, its important to maintain email contact with Aaron so he can assure you things are proceeding as expected. I'd also recommend taking detailed notes during the initial meetings so you can know where in the process you are and you can refer back to them when you have questions.
As far as my case was concerned, I initially had three charges, and I would imagine it was a difficult case. In the end, each of those charges were either dropped or reduced: one dropped completely, and the other two reduced to lesser charges. I'm certain that such an outcome would not have happened without the help of Aaron's legal expertise.

Attorney Wayt represented me with fighting my 2nd DUI case, which went to trail. No pleas were offered being that the prosecuting attorney felt it was an easy win. I blew over twice the legal limit, the field sobriety test was admitted into evidence, and both officers on the scene plus the breathalyzer test inspector were all called in to testify. With all the evidence against me, Aaron convinced 6 jurors that I was "NOT GUILTY" of DUI and my case was completely dropped. Almost every attorney in Tallahassee refused to take on my case, but Aaron is a miracle worker. A person would have to be insane to not seek the Aaron Wayt and the Law Office of Don Pumphrey Jr. to represent them on their DUI case or any other case for that matter. He is a beast in the courtroom and you will definitely get your money's worth and the best representation you can find in Tallahassee hands down.

I had the chance to meet Aaron recently at a forensic gas chromatography course. Aaron's knowledge and insight of DUI law was extremely impressive and insightful. He actually taught me quite a few things I didn't know. The only quality of Aaron's that rivals his knowledge of DUI law is his passion for fighting for his clients. When I have questions regarding my clients who live in Florida, Aaron is my choice, and he should be yours too.

I endorse this lawyer. Aaron worked for me during law school and was the best law clerk I ever had. Since graduating, he has become one of the premier criminal defense attorneys in town with a reputation for an ability to persuade jurors. I strongly recommend him to anyone who needs his services.
