I was represented by Mr. Dirmann for two DUIs and because of his representation the case resulted in a Reckless Driving. I am extremely thankful for the attention and support that he provided for me and my family during this tough and stressful time for me.
Results may not be typical . . . you may not have as beneficial a result.
In 2007, I was wrongly accused of a first degree felony that could have potentially incarcerated me for a maximum of thirty years. I feel extremely fortunate to have received a referral for Mr. Dirmann to take my case, and he agreed. He and his investigative staff worked tirelessly to put together a professional defense on my behalf. His work was so thorough and comprehensive that The State dropped all charges and the case never went to court. Mr. Dirmann allowed me to be fully involved with my case and was very accessible throughout the duration. Not only did I respect Jim in his professional role, but we became friends and continue to meet several times a year to discuss how our families are doing. I strongly recommend Mr Dirmann’s professional services to anyone in need of a defense attorney.
When I needed a defense attorney, James Dirmann was referred to me by an attorney colleague of his and I will always be grateful to both of them. In addition to knowing the law and how to effectively navigate the system, he was kind, professional and able to explain the process, possible outcomes and was always available. He checked in periodically and allayed my apprehension with our thoughtful discussions. Never did I feel he did not have time for me. In my case everything worked out well. It is a blessing to know that attorneys like James Dirmann are working for people in need.
Uber professional from the moment I stepped foot in his office with a pretty serious allegation brought against me. I felt a sense of relief when I made the decision to have Mr. Dirmann set the sail for my defense. Throughout the whole experience I felt as if I was in the most capable hands professionally and personally. A few words to describe my trial preparation: thorough, heartfelt, determined, organized and confident. Strategy and perseverance are the keys to a successful defense in my opinion and Mr. Dirmann exudes both of these qualities. After a full day trial which was very stressful we came back with a Not Guilty verdict and it redeemed me and my family. A huge victory in my life.
My experience was as follows. I was very nervous considering the pending court date. I do not live in Florida and this presented many unique challenges since my case was being tried in Bradenton, Florida. Mr. Dirmann took the extra effort to make me as comfortable as possible. He was always available to either accept or return my calls. I never was routed to a subordinate who was unfamiliar with my case. Mr. Dirmann recommended a course of action for me to follow. The steps were clear. I listened and did exactly as told. He asked me to review documents and comment. He obtained video evidence to support my case. He asked me to review the video and provide comments as it pertained to the written report of officers. Mr. Dirmann spent significant time developing our position based upon the facts. He produced a thorough document that outlined case law supporting our position. He is undeniably 100% familar with the law. He found and sited instances where my rights were violated. Mr. Dirmann kept me up to speed with every step along the way. I was always aware of the status of my case and the potential outcomes. Mr. Dirmann is connected with the courts and he is held in high regard and respected by everyone.
Long and short, Mr. Dirmann was able to settle my case with only one court appearance. The appearance was merely for the State to drop the charges against me. Granted everyone's outcome may not be the same, but I do not feel that I would have had the same success without Mr. Dirmann.
Another lawyer may or may not have paid as much attention to the details. I suspect some DUI attorneys may treat your case as a "just another" DUI. DUIs are serious business and you want the best to represent you when it affects your life. You want Mr. Jim Dirmann to represent you.
It is with great pride that I wholeheartedly endorse James R. Dirmann, P.A., as criminal defense attorney for anyone in need of such services. I had the very good fortune of being introduced to Jim in 2009 during one of the darkest moments of my personal life. I was falsely charged with a domestic violence misdemeanor and briefly arrested and jailed overnight by police, who chose to err on the side of caution in a “he-said, she-said” case. Before the charges were eventually dropped and the case dismissed by the prosecutor, I spent several months helplessly at the hands of “the system” and a mercenary plaintiff’s attorney who had viciously seized upon the opportunity to extract money in a divorce case. Throughout this stressful ordeal, Jim used his extreme legal and interpersonal skills, as well as his network and knowledge of the system to maneuver through the intricacies of the case and the difficult personalities involved. In the end and due entirely to his skill, the charges were dropped and the record expunged. To this day, I owe Jim an extreme debt of gratitude for both his professional and personal assistance. In addition to his legal expertise, Jim is a very compassionate individual. He is a great listener and communicator. He treats his clients and others with respect and dignity. He is a solid family man, with the highest personal values--- a true gentleman. I hope I will never have to use his professional services again, but if I do, James Dirmann will unequivocally be the first person I call.
In a moment of crisis, I found the need for a Criminal Trial Lawyer. James Dirmann was recommended. After speaking with him and explaining the situation, I engaged Mr. Dirmann as my attorney. I found that he not only listened, but heard what I was saying. We met several times and he explained the court system to me, and laid out the avenues I could pursue with both the pro and cons of each. He was readily available for my calls and questions and they were numerous. I was totally satisfied with the outcome of the case. I also realized how well connected and respected he was in the court system. I would, without reservation, highly recommend Mr. Dirmann. I give my authority for this to be reproduced by the party to whom I am sending it.
In my time with Jim Dirmann, all the chaos I felt from my case was put at ease. All my meetings with him were both professional and comforting as he always made me feel welcome in his office. Jim Dirmann will work hard for you because he cares about his clients and getting them their lives back.
My 18 year-old son was taken into custody with two other young men after allegedly stealing a GPS from a car inside an open garage. He stayed in jail for a month despite the fact that he was never officially charged with two felonies. As an attorney Mom, I was worried about the type of representation he would receive from the free legal services available here in Sarasota County, Florida. After I hired Jim Dirmann to defend my son, all the legal proceedings had positive outcomes for my son. He was released and has no formal record of any charges. His entire legal past has been expunged by the State of Florida. In addition, Mr. Dirmann provided a letter my son could use when seeking employment so any prospective employer would see that his record is clean. This has enabled my son to pursue employment without being passed over because of a felony record. I am thankful for the work Mr. Dirmann provided to our family.
Right from the start I knew I chose the right attorney. He spent time with me, gave me all the details, good and bad. As my case proceeded, he kept abreast of the ongoings. He was easy to work with and always available AND . . . Best of all he won my case, to my satisfaction.
