I would have to say that my case specifically was a difficult one. But Matt delivered on all fronts. From his professionalism down to his knowledge. When my case went to trail, I was obviously anxious, but when I heard the way Matt and his co-counsel Jacob Bonnell were representing me, I automatically knew I was in good hands. Would highly recommend! For the services I received, I think 5 stars is still to low of score. Thank you Matt.

If you are need of an attorney to help with traffic violations look no further than Mr. Olszewski. He handled our case with the upmost professional and kept us informed throughout the process.

Best around
Attorney Olszewski at the FL DUI Group represented me in a recent case. He was recommended by a pal in law enforcement who told me straight up who could handle my legal issues. Attorney Olszewski tore apart the states case like a pro and I got a very favorable outcome that was better than I imagined and others attorneys told me. I never want to hire an attorney again but if I do it is him.

Would Highly Recommend
Matt did a fantastic job on my case. The costs were exactly what were forecast from the first time I spoke with him, and the outcome in court was very fair. Matt was responsive to my emails and phone calls throughout the course of months, and he always brought honest clarity to the situation and prospects. I would recommend him to anyone in need of competent, professional, (and of course) legal help.

Best lawyer!!!!!
Mr. Olszewski laid out the best and worst case scenarios for my case. He didn’t just BS me like my prior attorney did where I wasted money and things were not going good. The Judge ruled in my favor and I got the best case scenario. I can’t thank Mr. Olszewski enough for his representation that is allowing me to put this mess behind me. I definitely recommend him!!!!

Outstanding Service
Attorney Matthew Olszewski is a very dedicated and professional attorney. Upon my initial consult he was there to assist me in any way to make it possible to provide representation for the case of my daughter. This was a first for me, I was inexperienced, nervous and uncertain of what to do and what was about to transpire in regards to my daughters case. He was patient and took the time during the free consult to educate me and assure me it would be handled professionally and efficiently. He even assisted me with a financial plan that was feasible for my daughter to avoid any possible barriers to receiving quality representation. His assistant Tanya is very attentive and professional as well. She always gets back to you, same day! My questions were always addressed and I always felt prepared and informed. Attorney Olzsewski also was accessible by phone or email at any time and responded promptly to any concerns I had during the entire process. His entire team of attorneys and office staff treat each case as an individual and value you like family. Thanks to this outstanding team my daughter’s case was dismissed and lessened to reckless driving with no impact on her record. Being a young adult with her whole life ahead of her, this outcome is priceless. There are no words that can fully express my gratitude to this team for caring and fighting so hard to ensure such a just outcome. Thank you always!

DUI dismissed
I hired Matthew to represent me in a DUI arrest, this was my first arrest and very stressful. Mathew was very confident and assured me he would take care of everything, in the end the case was dismissed, it was such a relief. I am so pleased I went with Matthew.

Matt, Got my DUI drop to reckless driving with alcohol and he worked really hard negotiating with the states attorneys to get it dropped down to that. I greatly appreciated all the work he did.

I cannot say enough great things about Matt. He took my DUI case, which I figured would not turn out well for me and got ALL charges dismissed! His expertise and no nonsense approach to my case and how he handled it just blows me away! I would recommend this attorney to anyone, he is by far the best for a DUI charge and truly a great attorney!!!

THE BEST DUI LAWYER
If you you are looking for a DUI Attorney please READ THIS! I had a DUI situation in February 2020! There were a few things that I completely disagreed with as far as why the officer even pulled me over.. I contacted my first attorney, and to make a long story short he sat me down and talked to me for about an hour. My first attorney made me feel comfortable with choosing him, however I had no idea what I was “really” in store for. As we were getting ready for my motion to suppress all of a sudden I had a completely different attorney. Basically there were 3 different attorneys and it seems as one of them is the face of the practice (the attorney I sat down with) and the other two are partners. Well let’s just say the attorney that was appointed to me was not prepared at all! After the motion to suppress hearing, I was basically stuck and the prosecutor would not work a good deal with me. I knew I could do better because the nature of my case.. I fired my first attorney and I started searching heavily on the internet.. I came across THE FL DUI GROUP with Attorney Matt Olszewski. This was one of the best decisions I ever made! Matt is very well respected in this field. Not to mention he has tons of experience with DUI cases! Matt was able to get me into a program that I will complete, after the completion of the program my DUI charges will be dismissed! When I got the call for this I was so grateful! Matt, I can’t thank you are your staff enough for what you all did for me! HIRE Matt Olszewski if you want your case handled correctly!!

Truth in Advertising
It was just like a Perry Mason episode where I was the defendant. You were brilliant!! From our first meeting I knew I had made the right decision in hiring you as my lawyer. In the court room it was obvious why you won the DUI Gladiator of the Year Award. Your cross of the arresting officer should be taught in law school. You new more about her job as a “DUI Expert” than she did and the jury saw that. What amazed me was how you got her to admit to lying about their case during her testimony. Your passionate closing argument was awesome. Brick by brick you tore the states case apart and made the prosecutors and cops look like idiots. After the trial finished I barely had time to go to the bathroom before the jury came back with a NOT GUILTY verdict. Now that’s what I call lawyering! Thanks for turning an unfair nightmare into a great victory. Feel free to use me as a referral for anybody wondering who they should hire as their lawyer.

Superb Representative
Matt not only has passion for his job but also compassion for his clients. Excellent communication skills and the willingness to listen. His knowledge of the law is phenomenal with exceedingly judgment skills and last but not least perseverance. I felt like he was fighting for his life instead of mine. You need the best he’s your guy. Period.

Best Lawyer Ever
I cannot believe or explain what a wonderful lawyer Mr. Matthew Olszewski is. I have been through some horrible times with deaths in my family (immediate family). I was just trying to get through each day. Depression is nothing to turn away from. I thought for sure that I was going to jail for driving on a suspended due to child support. He saved my life. Literally, I don't know what I would have done without him. He's not only a genius, but a good man. He actually cares for his clients and doesn't just want your money. I believe he's truly going to make a difference in the system. If you want a lawyer who is true and honest, you cannot go wrong. I am so thankful for this man.

This man got 4 felonies off my record. 5 charges all together. After probation I will not be a convicted felon. These results speak for themselves. The best lawyer to choose. He gets the job done properly. I’ve not had a large amount of experiences with lawyers So I truly am blessed that I found him. You will not regret hiring this man and his team. Matt Olszewski is top notch in his field
