I researched a number of potential attorneys in the Sarasota area to help me with a minor traffic citation. Ultimately, my neighbor recommended Jeffrey Haynes and I couldn’t be happier with his representation. I found Jeff to be responsive, detail-oriented, and reasonably priced (unlike some of the other attorneys I researched!!).

He did such a great job for a friend of mine. Next time I need a lawyer, Jeffrey Haynes is my guy! I would recommend him to anyone that needs assistance from a lawyer.

Jeff has been my Attorney for about 15 years. He is in a word, a magician. Last week, I learned that I was about to lose my license for 5 years and could potentially face a year in jail. I thought that I may have acted too late and was just hoping for the best. Within that week, Jeff literally saved my business and my life. He was able to eliminate the 2 things I feared the most as well as get my suspended license reinstated. I didn’t even think it was a possibility. I would have easily paid 10 times the amount to retain him, for giving me my life and ability to work again back. There’s no point in trying the places you see on a billboard, there’s no way they can give you the attention or peace of mind at a very reasonable price that he has for me.

I thought that I may have acted too late and was just hoping for the best. Within that week, Jeff literally saved my business and my life. He was able to eliminate the 2 things I feared the most as well as get my suspended license reinstated. I didn't even think it was a possibility. I would have easily paid 10 times the amount to retain him, for giving me my life and ability to work again back. There's no point in trying the places you see on a billboard, there's no way they can give you the attention or peace of mind at a very reasonable price that he has for me.
When I first met Jeff, he was a very warm and friendly guy. He made me feel like family although I was meeting him for the first time. My son was charged for a crime he did not commit. Jeff did not judge him on that. He interviewed him, got the facts, and went fighting for him. Even it though it was tough, he did not cave in to the prosecutor, and got the case dismissed. We hung with him even though times were tough. He even gave me a hug, told me everything would be fine. He has the greatest secretary working for him, her name is Patty. He's a no nonsense guy, gives you the facts. Hiring Jeff puts the best team on your side. He's the best criminal defense attorney in Sarasota!
I absconded 27 years ago and finally decided to take care of my VOP warrant. I had contacted a few different attorneys who said the outcome was bleak to say the least. The cheapest of those being around $3000.00 for what seemed at the very least jail time. After calling Attorney Haynes my wife and I decided to go with him. His intelligence to law was a huge benefit. We drove from Kansas City back to Sarasota a few times but it was well worth it. Instead of doing 6 months in jail I received time served and some fines. If you want and intelligent and diligent attorney I would recommend Mr. Haynes.
