Mr.Maltezo's and his staff are the best of the best when it comes to a lawyer that really works for you! From the first time I talked to Maria I know I wanted Steve to be my lawyer! I was confident in Steve every step of the way and got a great outcome! I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs a lawyer they can fully trust !

I caught my 3rd DUI summer 2016 which is a Felony charge. I'm a professional single female with a child with everything to lose. Due to the circumstances of my case in which a 3rd DUI is a felony, time, and suspension of your license for YEARS, Stephen was able to reduce my case to a 1st with a 6 month suspension and $500 fine with early termination of probation with no monitoring of any sort. Prior to hiring Stephen, I have a method when it comes to hiring a lawyer because .... I mean lets face it, their skill set is to negotiate and sway you and can sell you a dream to collect your funds and then you're stuck, especially if you do not have the means to afford another to represent you because you spent all your money on the first one. I interview them. I ask them about their work load. I ask them about fellow lawyers I've already interviewed to see where their mind set is at. I automatically disregard anyone who trashes another because what I look for is detail. Stephen was the only one who said he didn't have the time to worry about another because he was focused solely on his. I was sold. Now, the negatives, since I have to be honest .... when Stephen is working on your case, he does not do a lot of out reach but he will always respond by email or in a response call. Its understandable as a client to be scared and you may feel when you don't hear from your lawyer that they are not taking action. That is how I felt. I also felt maybe he was selling me a dream as I had no way to verify he was really doing what he said he was doing. Towards the end of my case when the negotiations were at its peak, Stephen told me what I was facing. I PRESSED him out and although he told me he did the best he could do he still went back to the prosecutor with anything I wasn't satisfied with; for example, I have to serve 25 days, (which I will eat up over a felony and a year and 3-10 years of revocation of a license) I had a pretty tough judge in Hillsborough, (Judge Farr) and I asked Stephen if I have to do the time please negotiate for weekends. Stephen advised me this was not do-able and I had a gut feeling he wasn't telling me the truth. When Stephen and I were discussing my case we started speaking with a lawyer passing by, it was verified by others Judge Farr is the only judge on floor 2 that will not let you do weekends (lucky me) either way, Stephen was able to get the prosecutor to allow me to serve the time at some point during probation so I was able to get my affairs in order. I have used up my PTO (Wahhhh) but I am able to still keep my career and support my family. Stephen worked my case to where I will do the bare minimum and would not be affected too much personally. Stephen has a hyper demeanor and you may feel like he's not listening but his mind is rapid and probably 10 steps ahead of you. As far as his staff. Fabulous. Everything is timely in the portal they use as far as payment processing and communication and scheduling. His staff will promptly relay messages and answer any questions if they can. Stephens rate was also about 1,000 cheaper than other lawyers I interviewed. Between Stephen and his team it really is a dream team. I highly recommend AT LEAST consulting with this man because when he speaks it seems too good to be true however, he does deliver. I will say that if anything were ever to occur again in my life I will definitely be hiring this man again and recommending him to anyone facing legal troubles.

I hired attorney Maltezos to represent me on a DUI (2nd one) and possesion case in March after being referred to him by my best friends girlfriend. I was really embarassed about what happened and I was in denial for a while until I realized that the public defender was not doing anything for me. Hiring Stephen was undoubtetly the best choice I have made. He took a huge load off my shoulders and handled everything from A to Z. He won the formal review hearing and made sure I didn't loose my driving priviledges!! That was huge for me and I cried when he gave me the good news. Everything was smooth riding after that and my case got resolved with the best outcome I could imagine. Thank you Stephen for actually caring about me as a person and took into consideration my needs. You and your amazing and skillful staff always accomodated me and treated me with respect. Without a second thought I would highly recommend Stephen's services to anyone. He is agressive and passionate with what he does and it definetly shows. Could not be happier. Thank you!

I fully endorse attorney Stephen Maltezos. I have had the pleasure of knowing Steve for almost 10 years and he has consistently established himself as one of the hardest working and intelligent attorneys in the Tampa Bay area. I have referred cases to him in the past and Stephen has always obtained great results. I have no hesitation in recommending him to any of my clients.
