Very professional and thorough. Cannot say enough about how great my experience was with them.
I gave Mr. Speedie a tough case having 2 DUIs and trying to get my license back as soon as possible. Him and his staff always made sure I was updated and knew what we had to do every step of the way. He would review my paperwork and find inconsistencies that had to be fixed instead of just being surprised once we got to the hearing. He helped me feel more comfortable with talking to the hearing officers (not and easy task). And even called to follow up with me once I'd been approved for my license so I knew what to do. Great guy, great staff, and nothing but great things to say about him. I would highly recommend him to anyone!!!!

Helped me get back on the road and get my life back!!!
I hired Mr. Speedie because the first lawyer i hired pretty much screwed me over and made my case even worse. Mr. Speedie reviewed my case and informed me it wasnt anything he couldnt fix with one hearing. I was very satisfied with his professionalism and timely manner in which he handled things. He kept me very informed about what was going on with my case and i felt very confident going into my hearing with him. Thanks to his skills and knowledge as a winning lawyer, i am on my way to getting my license back and getting back on the road. I highly recommend him as a lawyer for any dui related hearing!!! Thank You Mr. Speedie for helping me get my life back!!!!

Very good personable competent attorney
Tom Speedie and I met when I made the decision to hire an attorney to help me with a revoked drivers licence issue that had been looming for years. Upon contacting and subsequently meeting with Tom I knew this was the right attorney for the job. Tom was very helpful and upfront with me. We developed a plan and then Tom went to work. He was prompt with returning my calls while answering all of my questions. Tom is one of the most personable and competent attorneys that I have ever met. He is down to earth, does not pass judgement towards anyone and is truly on your side. My case was not easy and presented some major challenges. Tom produced positive results. I have been driving legally now for 4 years and will always be grateful to Tom for what he has done for me. I highly recommend Tom, you will not be disappointed.

Great attorney
Mr.Speedie is the best attorney I've ever had. He made the whole process of getting my license back as painless as possible. He returned phone calls promptly and listened and answered any questions or concerns that I had. He was polite and understanding. Simply put he is the best.

Speeding and traffic ticket Attorney | Aug 09

"I endorse Tom without hesitation for any traffic-related legal matter, most notably issues relating to the Secretary of State."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Mar 05
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I heartily endorse Tom. Tom and I practice the same type of law. Driver's license hearings. I have a 10 rating and the only reason I can think of that Tom does not is that he has not been practicing as long as I have. He knows what he is doing, he understands the system, he works hard for, and cares about, his clients. Tom gives presentations to other lawyers on how to win Secretary of State hearings and he is totally honest."
