I Would Hire Him Again
“My son has been to prison once. He got out, and got right back into trouble with drugs, and also has two drunk driving charges, with a violation of probation. He originally had a public defender, who said he must go back to prison for five years. My son pleaded with me to get him a real lawyer, so I asked around in my circle of friends to see if anyone knew of a good criminal defense lawyer in Tampa.
I heard about Brett Metcalf, and I looked into hiring him. He allowed me to pay him in two payments. As soon as I made the first payment, he went to the jail to see my son.
My son had several misdemeanors, as well as a felony charge – in two separate jurisdictions. Brett was able to get everything handled in one courtroom, and negotiated with the State Prosecutors for a great plea bargain deal that included the all-so-important drug and alcohol treatment my son needed!
My son was released from jail, and got to go into an inpatient drug treatment program, instead of going back to prison for five years! He is currently in that program, and is doing wonderful!
This is not the first time I have hired a Tampa criminal defense attorney for my son. The last two lawyers I hired for him took our money, but never delivered the results they promised. One of these lawyers actually said, “your son needs to go to prison,” after he took nearly $5,000 of our money.
Brett kept both my son (who was in jail), and myself updated constantly throughout the entire Hillsborough County, Florida criminal court process.
As I said before, my son had criminal charges (misdemeanors) in Plant City, Florida Court, and felony charges in Tampa. Brett was able to get all charges heard by the felony court judge in Tampa! This alone saved my son months of unneeded jail time!
Both my son and I are extremely happy with Brett Metcalf, and his fees were reasonable as well.”
