DUI Attorney in Tampa Reports
"Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Jose Ramirez has been named the winner of FHP's 2015 Hurd-Smith award.  Trooper Ramirez was honored by FHP and MADD during a ceremony July 24. The Hurd-Smith award is given to the FHP trooper with the most DUI arrests in a single year. In 2014, Trooper Ramirez had 183 DUI arrests." Ramirez was an award-winner in 2012,. He did not arrest enough to be a winner in 2013. So, in 2014, he really kicked into high gear to get as many arrests as he could to regain the crown.

The record for arrests in a single year was set in 2004, when a Tampa Bay area cop nailed 300 arrests. There are no statistics on how many of these record-setting arrests resulted in convictions.

"MADD and FHP recognized seven troopers from across the state as Century Achievers for their efforts to remove impaired drivers from the roadways by making more than 100 DUI arrests in 2013: Troopers Anthony Palese, Deborah Hawkins, Gregory Healy, Jose Ramirez, Joshua Evans, Niles Daughtry and Sgt. Mark Castleberry."

DUI Attorney Tampa Client Review

Client Review "compassionate, diligent in their work"

Here is a review from a recent client who came to us in big trouble and then was able to leave his troubles behind. Complete review follows:

Law Office of W.F. ''Casey'' Ebsary Jr
Had I not found Casey and his team, I would have been extradited from Tennessee to Florida on a 25 year old warrant. Casey and his team got my charges dropped and the warrant cancelled. They were compassionate, diligent in their work, and did their homework on my case. If you need an attorney, Casey is AAA+++.

DUI Officers Watch Bar Parking Lots.

"Tips to watch locations come from Phone Calls from Bar Managers, letters, pictures"

Tampa is well known for tactical use of special teams to conduct traffic stops near sporting events and bars. here is a video of testimony from a former Tampa Police Department Sergeant who was well-versed in police tactics in Tampa Bay.  He has been fired, but his buddies are still on duty.

Stanley Cup Finals DUI Tampa

Traffic cops will be focused on the Channelside area. Assume they watch parking lots, act on tips received by phone and other types of electronic messages. Tips to watch locations come from Phone Calls from Bar Managers, letters, pictures the former DUI specialist said during the final testimony as a Tampa law enforcement officer, "I get all kinds of stuff."

Assume this is also the practice everywhere - Pinellas, Pasco, and Hillsborough counties in Florida. One DUI attorney has said if "there was a basis for the traffic stop and probable cause for the arrest, how or why an officer got involved in a DUI stop is irrelevant." Be advised.
