Speeding Ticket
I contacted Drew based upon current web reviews related to my traffic citation. We had a verbal review of my issue and he assured me he would be able to handle the issue. He was very confident things would work out in his favor. I was instructed not to show up for court and that he would contact me again after court with the results. Drew contacted me to inform me my case was dismissed and no further action would be taken. Case Closed.... THANK'S DREW I hope I never need to contact him again but if I did need help I would not hesitate to call him again. Now pick up the phone and give him a call and stop reading other attorney's mumble jumble.

Solved my problem professionally
I contacted McCulloch Law after receiving mail from them telling me of their service to fight a traffic ticket. As I didn’t feel this ticket should have been giving I contacted them. The price was reasonable. Less than the ticket would have been. They handled everything professionally. I would recommend them and definitely would use them in the future if I have a traffic ticket again that I didn’t deserve. Cop was over zealous.

Fantastic job!
I cannot thank you enough for the fantastic service with my auto accident case. From the very first call, I was reassured that I could realease all my worries and concerns. OF course that is near impossible for most of us. But, you were persistant through the Covid delays and postponements. You delivered more than I expected, a total dismissal of my case which occured back in Oct of 2019. So thank you, thank you, I can move forward with my life without that nagging problem lingering in the back of my mind. What a relief!! Drew, I feel like you have magical powers! I will highly recommend you to any friend in need of legal help from an accident. I do not think I said THANK YOU enough, I sincerly appreciate all your help.

Right on
After my experiences with other attorneys I would give Drew even more than 5 stars. He went out of his way to help me deal with an issue that was not even that familiar to him. And he communicated clearly and treated me just like I was a person like himself, even though I did not go to law school!! Right on when you want to pay someone for legal counsel and representation!

Great job!!!
Under the circumstances, my expectation for the outcome for my citation was for no points to be added to my license. When I opened the email with the final outcome and read my citation was dismissed, I couldn't have been more surprised and happier. Great job, although I hope I never have to see you again.

Professional. Competent, Human
Drew McCulloch communicated openly, completely and timely from start to finish. You get real human interaction. Drew was on my initial call for the consultation at which point I hired him. Throughout the short time, his staff was always able to inform me of what to expect and the timing. Most importantly, he got my case dismissed completely and was very reasonable in cost. I strongly recommend, would hire him again. Thank you, Drew!

Thank You McCulloch Law for taking care of my daughters ticket. Her court date was on the same day she was to move into her college apartment. She was so concerned about taking care of this.

Worked to completely dismissed the citation case
Drew is one of the most influential attorney I ever met. I got the citation ticket for careless driving and was very worried about points on license and insurance hike. I consulted Drew and explained about my situation, he did carefully listen all the points and interviewed me. After the accident I was very depressed and upset, but he shows the confidence to file the dispute and worked to completely dismissed it. He holds the incredible knowledge about his professions and utilizes it at the right time.

Professional, Excellent, Knowledgeable Attorney
After I was arrested, I was very nervous, confused, disappointed, etc. etc. etc. I was unsure of which lawyer would represent my case in a professional and efficient manner. After interviewing several attorneys, I finally hired Drew McCulloch. My case was a criminal drug offense case with a parallel department of health case as I am a healthcare professional. Drew immediately started working diligently, quickly, and efficiently on both parallels of my case. He did an outstanding job on both sides of my case, got me into the Pre Trial Intervention program (my charges will be dropped), and has also appeared at most of my court cases (when his schedule did not conflict). He is extremely easy to get in contact with when you have questions via texts/phone calls/emails, and he absolutely takes pride in his clients and of course, his career. In my case in particular, he has gone above and beyond what most attorneys would do, and has helped me tremendously get back into my career as a healthcare professional. I highly recommend this attorney because he puts his clients first.

Great Representation!
Drew represented my 17yr old son in juvenile court in Hillsborough County in 2017. His extensive understanding of the court system and excellent reputation within the judicial personnel (judges, prosecutors, etc…everyone knew him!) allowed us to have some peace of mind during this difficult situation. Drew’s skill and confidence showed from day 1 as he carefully laid out a plan of action. Unfortunately, my son was arrested in another incident during his first on-going case and in turn was facing another felony charge. Drew immediately regrouped and somehow was still able to negotiate a plea for community hours. My son was able to escape severe penalties typically associated with these felony charges AND ultimately Drew got both cases dismissed, so most importantly NO RECORD! His fees were very reasonable for the services provided and he is very honest but I believe his true strength lies in his sincere concern for his clients. Drew spoke to my son at great length many times about his future and the need to change the choices he’s making. I’m glad to say that my son is now employed and enrolled in college. It is with great conviction that I recommend Drew McCulloch wholeheartedly to anyone facing a difficult situation requiring a top-notch attorney.

Top Notch Attorney!!!!!!
Drew is very professional and acts intentionally. He provides realistic expectations and follows through on his responsibilities. Recently we hired Drew for a case dealing with both a state criminal defense case, as well as some issues with the Department of Health. Through Drew, I was able to achieve best case scenario, and a significantly reduced sentence compared to similar offenders. I fully recommend and endorse Drew, he's a class act.
