I retained Mr. Thomas back in October for a DUI with property Damage and a bld alch level above .15 Right away he made me feel more comfortable, since this was the only time I have ever been in trouble. He never made any false promises as other attorney's I spoke with did andwas very honest that this might be difficult due to my bld alch level and that I was in an accident, however we just finished up today and my only charge was reckless driving, no probation and no fines only court cost. Mr. Thomas saved me thousands of dollars and I would highly recommend him over any other DUI attorney in the area.

Mr. Thomas kept stringing me along by telling me he could get the charges reduced. He never even took the time to read my case until we met for court. The most inept attorney I have ever encountered in my life. I am used to someone being on the ball, having his ducks in a row. What an idiot; I took constitutional law in college, and believe I understand it better than him. I was telling him the angles to look for, and he agreed with me. He came to our next meeting and I had to tell the story again.
He seemed too busy to give a crap about anything but my money. I have been in sales for 10 years and can tell when someone is bullshitting someone. Unfortunately, I already gave my money to this monkey and couldn't afford to make the same mistake again.
So I rode out the wave of ignorance that became my life for the next year. I would have been better off pleading guilty the first day; instead of dragging out the misery along with a second suspension due to time frame.
If this does nothing else then keep some other poor sap from pissing into the wind, I have won.

I have unfortunately needed his services on several moving violations. He has always gone out of his way to keep me informed and up to date with actions being taken. I highly recommend him to any and everyone seeking knowledgable representation. He lives and breathes the ins and outs of the judicial system in our area.

I have worked with Jeff Thomas for over 10 years and his results speak for themselves. I would recommend that anyone looking for a criminal lawyer take the time to speak with Jeff Thomas. Jeff Thomas only handles criminal cases and he has the experience to help your case as former prosecutor at the State Attorney's Office in Hillsborough County.
