Awesome Attorney
I was very lucky to fine such a great attorney for my son. I called Atty Grajek to help fight for my incarcerated son’s right to be notified of some pending charges. He not only found what my son was being charged with, he quickly moved to get the case to a resolution with better than expected results. Atty Thomas Grajek was always responsive and available to answer any of my questions, even weekends! It was a great relief to know he was on the case. Look no further, if you are looking for an attorney that will answer your calls & questions and get great outcomes. Not many attorneys out there like Thomas Grajek.

Fantastic Attorney, Highly Recommend!
Tom has helped me with two cases. He won both by the way but that’s besides the point. He is highly intelligent, reasonably priced, and incredibly honest. My first case was very challenging, he handled it for an employee of mine who was very important to the business. He was up front about the challenges we may face and he was correct about all of them. End of the day he got the job done and really did a fantastic job. Second case for me personally. I called him to see if I was in the wrong and he let me know his thoughts on it, we decided to fight it and prevailed in court! Would not have been able to succeed without him and I will only use him going forward.

Good Luck Finding a Better Lawyer
Gave him very little to work with. Tom sat through the pandemic with me and all the chaos that ensued. Nightmare of a case if I was an attorney and he fought for me for way better result than I ever could have hoped for. Glad there are still practitioners out there like him. Thank you Tom!

Best Attorney in Polk County!
Attorney Grajek took my case last minute and got all charges dropped. He was very knowledgeable and professional and I would recommend him to anyone with a criminal case. He handled my case in a timely fashion and returned everyone of my calls and emails. His office is also very clean and organized.

| Consulted Attorney
Initial Consultation
Mr Grajek was referred to me by another lawyer because my case is in a county that the other lawyer seldom practices in. Mr. Grajek was willing to respond to my call in the late evening. What impressed me is that he had already looked me up and knew details about me and who my judge would be, etc. He asked all of the right questions and answered all of mine. He explained the whole process thoroughly. A couple other lawyers tried to give me the quick sales pitch and quick close. Mr. Grajek treated me as though I was already his client from the beginning. I felt comfortable with him and he is at the top of my list for lawyers that I'm considering.

Best Attorney / Highly Recommend that you call him 1st
I was on Probation when I got into more trouble which got me a VOP with ( NO BOND ) I was looking at 3 to 5 years in Jail but with Mr. Grajek's experience and knowledge in the courtroom. Not only did he get the remainder of my probation terminated. I was released from Jail the very next day! I was in disbelief but so thankful that I had him on my side in court with me!

Best Attorney Ever!
Mr. Grajek got my case dismissed so fast, I did not even have to go to court. I was referred to him by a friend of mine that said he was the best lawyer they have ever dealt with. He explained the strategy he was going to use for my defense by using terms that made the court process easy for me to understand. He started working on my case immediately and my charges were dismissed in less then 2 weeks. He is very nice and professional, but also aggressive and smart, which was just what I needed.

DUI Representation
I was referred to Mr. Grajek by another local attorney to handle my DUI case. After spending about 20-30 mins in his office for a consultation on my case I knew he was the best attorney to defend my rights. He was direct and honest about expectations based on the evidence. Tom was willing to put in the work to defend me. He kept me well informed along the way, and made the dreaded DUI experience as stress free as possible. He’s willing to use his knowledge and expertise to put in the work for the most favorable outcome. His HARDWORK paid off in my case, which resulted in the charges being dropped. If you’re looking for the best representation in Polk County, he’s your guy!

Superb Lawyer
I hired Mr. Grajek as my criminal defense attorney for a charge. He was straight up and honest with me from the beginning. He is definitely no BS. Everything that he said would happen is what happened. There were no false promises. I kept a felony off of my record and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great, no BS lawyer who will really work for you.

Awesome lawyer!!
My fiancé was caught driving with a suspended license (2nd time) and was involved in an accident. The state wanted to give him 90 days in jail and revoke his license for a long time. We called Mr Grayjek and he was so personable and attentive! My fiancé ended up reinstating his license and changed his driving with a suspended license 2nd offense to invalid license and my fiancé walked away with just fines and a 4 hour driving online class! He kept us updated after each court session with what was said. Thank you Attorney Grayjek!!!!

Very pleased and appreciative of Tom Grajek's professionalism
My son had a legal matter that arose at 3am on a Saturday. We live out of state and were in need of an attorney. I was in Forida visiting family. My wife, in Illinois reached out to 3 different attorneys. Tom was the first to return her call...from the gym. He was extremely patient and insightful. Tom guided us through the bond process and waited in his office from 6pm until our arrival at 9pm that night. He then spent 2 hours with my son and I discussing the incident and possible outcomes. He laid out a strategy and for me, he was very direct with my son as to the risks he faced for his future. I can not say enough about Tom's conversation with my son other than I will always be thankful he was our attorney. Over the course of the next 6 weeks Tom did countless hours of leg work, going to the site of the incident and speaking with people there. He also was in constant contact with the court clerk and people in that office. While this was going on Tom was always available and responsive by either cell phone, email or text. It was great to be able to reach out and receive timely updates. Due to Tom's efforts my son's case was dismissed and my son's future remains in his own hands. Anyone in need of an attorney extremely knowledgeable in the law and the local court system would be fortunate to find and utilize Tom's services.

Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 24
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"It is hard not to say good things about Thomas. As a fellow lawyer who strives to be the best I absolutely can tell the difference between a good trial lawyer who will fight for their clients and ones who just mark time and go through the motions. Thomas is a fighter. He is also a lawyer dedicated to continuous learning to make sure he can be the best advocate for his clients as possible. I highly recommend this man."

Criminal defense Attorney | Oct 23

Criminal defense Attorney | Nov 29
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"If I was faced with a criminal charge, Tom Grajek is THE lawyer that I would call. Experience doesn't even begin to describe his career. Mr. Grajek is an incredible criminal defense lawyer who is not afraid to try a case. In this day and age, most criminal defense lawyers are looking for the easy way out. They want to work out a quick plea and move on. Not Mr. Grajek. He's a fighter all the way. If you want a criminal defense lawyer (particularly in Polk County or Hillsborough County, Florida) who is not afraid to stand up for your rights, you should give Tom Grajek a call. He won't shy away from a good fight and has a proven track record of taking cases to trial. . . and winning!"
