I was calling attorneys when I reacted poorly to a bad situation and really screwed myself into the ground. After my first call I wasn't impressed and then when that guy didn't call me back I realized I needed to keep searching. Fortunately for myself the next call I made was to Mr. Rudman's office . Not only did they recognize the severity of my situation they patched me through to him right away. He wanted me to come in immediately to discuss the matter. By the time I got there and after informing him of what happened he already had a game plan put in place and said this is how I would attack it if you so choose. He also saw how down I was and even lifted my spirits and I felt comforted like he genuinely cared. Well I've never had a stronger gut feeling in my life and pulled the trigger for him and his team to represent me right then and there. They say hindsight is 20/20 and looking back it was literally the smartest decision I've ever made!!! With his hard work and what I can only assume is his incredible connections, he picked up my case like an Etch A Sketch, shook it and everything disappeared like it never happened!!! I can't tell you how impressed I am of not only of the results obviously but the way they treated me and was on top of everything from the start. His team is always on point and Mr. Rudman was genuine, down to earth and I felt like I had known him for years before all this mess!!! I owe this man a great deal of gratitude and can't thank him and his staff enough!!!!! Unjustly I can only give this man 5 Stars but if your searching for someone to represent you, LOOK NO FURTHER!!!!

If you are looking for an attorney that is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and responsible call Doug. He will listen to your situation and assist you through it so you know what is happening. Not like other attorneys where they keep you in the dark and you have to leave message after message. I have dealt with dozens of attorneys over the years and Doug is the only one I have ever recommended.
It's not a secret. Our state, county, and cities are hurting for money. Most likely if you are reading this you may have been affected by our new big brother (cameras) or officers turned into tax collectors. You have rights and Doug can help you protect them. He helped me out with a recent speeding ticket and the results were outstanding!
In today's â€œsystemâ€ you have to know the in's and out's and you must hire the professional who knows them. Doug is knowledge when it comes to law and our court system. I have dealt with other â€œticket attorneysâ€, but never the level of service I received from Doug. You are not a number to him at the deli counter, you become one of his clients and you get a real lawyer who is on your side!
I 100% Recommend Doug Rudman for your next legal situation.

Mr. Rudman returned my call immediately about my daughter's case involving a DUI in another state and the rules around Florida driver's licenses. He was very compassionate, yet knowledgable about the law and was able to help me right away. I would definitely use Mr. Rudman again in the future.

Doug Rudman is more than just a hard working, forceful advocate for his clients. He is that rare example of an attorney that truly understands the nuts-and-bolts of the criminal justice system, which he works to the benefit of his clients to secure meaningful results. Doug's clients will not only have an intelligent and persuasive attorney representing their interests, but they will have access to an attorney that knows how to work the system and achieve successful resolutions in difficult situations.

Doug is a very diligent, bright advocate for his clients. I have referred numerous people in need of his services, and he has done a fantastic job for them. As a former Prosecutor, Doug has a unique perspective of the process, and his familiarity with the system and many of the prosecutors from when he worked there is a real plus for his clients. Doug gives his clients candid, practical advice regarding their individual situations. He will advise when it is appropriate to take a plea, but he also is a great trial lawyer, and will take a case to trial if it's in the client's best interests. I would highly recommend Doug Rudman for criminal matters for these reasons.
