Summer Goldman of Goldman and Wetzel was one of a few attorneys who was referred to me by family friends after i was charged with a DUI. After meeting with each of the Attorneys i could tell the Summer's firm was my best shot of beating a conviction. She was very knowledgable and passionate about her work. After each meeting with Summer i left her office feeling confidant, not defeated as most would facing a serious charge and a tough case to try in court. The process of a DUI is long and the ability to contact your attorney and have a response in a timely manner is very important. Summer and her staff were always just a phone call away. The end result of this case, was in my opinion the best case scenario. Summer was able to to get me a deal that in my research and referals is almost impossible. Even the judge was impressed with what Summer was able to work out with the State Attorneys Office. I am very thankful that i had Summer on my side. I would highly recommend her without question to anyone facing not only a DUI case but any criminal charges.

Mrs. Goldman is a compassionate, hard-working attorney who I was
most fortunate to have found in my time of need. Mrs. Goldman was
my voice when I had none as I faced a possible Felony charge that
could have resulted in my serving time in state prison.
Mrs. Goldman’s timely intervention helped avert a more serious,
disastrous outcome, and as such has protected my rights and my
freedom by advising me on what I need to do to stay out of trouble.
While there remains a few open issues that have been spawned by
my criminal arrest, Mrs. Goldman continues to be attentive and
responsive to these collateral damages from my criminal arrest, and
continues to demonstrate her legal prowess through active
participation in the many facets of my “legal grief”.
Are you looking for THE attorney who really listens, genuinely wants
to help you, AND gets results? Then look no further, Attorney
Summer Goldman should be your attorney too.

Summer has an excellent reputation in the Tampa Bay legal community. I have seen her successfully defend clients in the courtroom on charges ranging from simple DUI to the most serious charges where life in prison is on the line. I highly endorse this lawyer.
