Seth Hyman attorneys negotiating

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

It's not easy to figure out which attorney to hire when you don't have any experience in a courtroom or legal education. While it is perfectly legal for an accused person to represent themselves, it is almost never a good idea to do so. When you have a toothache, you call a dentist. When your house is burning down, you call the fire department.  And when you are facing possible incarceration, you should call an attorney who specializes in criminal law. In fact, one of our country's best lawyers, Abraham Lincoln, once said "He who represents himself has a fool for a client."

The best way to pick an attorney is by their training and experience, reviews by past clients, results of prior cases, and the opinions of other attorneys in the community. I have been the lead attorney on many jury trials and dozens of hearings throughout my legal career. My law firm is focused exclusively on DUIs, Driving Offenses and Criminal Defense so I can focus all of my attention on mastering this complex area of the law. Hopefully, the information provided on this page will convince you that I will provide you top-notch representation, going above and beyond not only to fight hard for the best resolution to your case but also to communicate what is going on at each stage in the process. Please note that prior results do not guarantee identical results for similar charges, every case is different and depends on the facts, criminal history of the accused, the prosecutor and the Judge.

Call (407) 274-7501 or email seth@sethhymanlaw.com to schedule a consultation with DUI lawyer and criminal defense attorney Seth Hyman today!
