We hired Mr. Dirga to represent my partner against multiple existing toll violations in Florida. We reside in Nevada and needed to hire an attorney that could have the toll violations taken care of so we didn't need to travel to Florida. While Mr. Dirga was able to get the fines reduced on each of the tickets, however my partner was ordered to take an 8 hour in person traffic course in Florida. That's a bit hard to do when you live in Nevada. Mr. Dirga should have made it clear in his initial filing to the court that we are out of state residents and any solution should tailored to that situation. We made it clear in every email sent to him, that we do not live in Florida.
It's impossible to get Mr. Dirga on the phone to have questions answered, and he fails to properly respond to the questions asked in emails which is his preferred communication method. His lack of attention to detail is worrisome. Having a support staff might be beneficial for clients who have questions about their cases that Mr. Dirga does not respond to by phone or email.

I hired Attorney Dirga to help me fight a ticket for careless driving. He was excellent to work with from start to finish! I work two jobs, my time
is very limited. He made it easy to communicate, listened to my story,
and worked with me over the phone and via email. He did a great job
with minimal involvement and time on my part. His fee was very reasonable and affordable. He provides a great service with a successful outcome, it simply couldn't have been better. It has been
of great value to me! If you are in need of this type of assistance you
sincerely could not find a better attorney!

I was on vacation all the way from Mass. and got into a traffic violation in FL., I was looking for a lawyer to represent me and came across Mr. Eric J. Dirga. Best move I ever made was hiring him to represent me, as I'm miles away concerned about this situation until Mr. Dirga told me "case dismissed congrats". I was so relieved to hear this I will DEFINITELY recommend him. I hope I will never get into any trouble again while on vacation but god forbid I do I will hire Mr. Dirga again thank you again god is good and Mr. Dirga is the man.

Relationship: Supervised lawyer
I have known Mr. Dirga for more than 20 years. We worked together as prosecutors early in his career. Eric's knowledge of traffic and sealing/expungement law, as well as his familiarity with local court practices, is extensive. If he can help you, he will; if he cannot, he will tell you so. I endorse this honest advocate.
Neal McShane, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I strongly endorse Eric Dirga. I have known Eric since he started with the State Attorney’s Office in Orlando. He and I were opponents on numerous cases when he was a prosecutor. Eric is an extremely diligent, hard-working, conscientious, open-minded and intelligent attorney. He is very patient and highly professional in the way he handles his caseload and other attorneys. Eric is always well-prepared for court, very respectful to members of the court and opposing counsel, always represents himself in a highly professional manner, and is a genuine and sincere person. Eric is very knowledgeable in his understanding of the law and the court system. He is an outstanding lawyer who is demonstrating the same strong work ethic in private practice. I endorse/ recommend Eric Dirga.
