  • Brian Leifert is an excellent criminal defense attorney, well experienced in criminal court cases such as DUI and drug possession as well as traffic cases. If you have a traffic ticket in Broward or Palm Beach County you just bring it to his office and they take care of it. They maintain excellent communication to let you know what is happening with your case. I refer anyone that needs his services and they are always happy.
  • Consulted with Doug on a speeding ticket which I really didn't deserve, in my opinion...
    Doug is great! He is professional, fair and follows through. He took care of my case quickly and thoroughly. I was at ease throughout the entire process. My case was dismissed, no points, no traffic school and his fee was very reasonable!
  • I received a ticket for a stop sign violation. I am a careful driver and had a perfect driving record until now. I hired Douglas Leifert and was thrilled that he got my case dismissed - no points, no traffic school, no fines. Would definitely hire again!
  • After consulting several attorneys, I hired Mr. Leifert to represent me on a complicated and potentially devastating case. I found Mr. Leifert and his staff to be experienced, accessible and willing to go the extra mile to accommodate my situation. Leifert & Leifert exceeded my expectations and I wholeheartedly recommend this firm.
