If you need a DUI defense attorney, the search is over.
Atty. Thomas Grajek

A Lakeland, FL criminal defense attorney who fights to win

I’m here to fight back, not just cut a deal.

It only takes one moment to change your future forever. The consequences of a conviction for DUI or another crime in Polk County can ruin your life – your ability to get job, drive a car, get housing, and so on. Police and prosecutors may want to make an example of you, and too often, they’re willing to bend the rules to do it.

The odds are stacked against you, so what do you do? The only way out is to fight those charges with everything you’ve got.

You need a Lakeland criminal defense lawyer who’s in it to win, who knows what it takes to find the holes in the prosecution’s case and beat the system. That’s why you need attorney Thomas C. Grajek on your side.

“I became a lawyer to help people and fight for them.”

What do you do when you get a DUI?

It only takes one DUI charge to change your life. You may have your license suspended and face fines or even jail time. Your vehicle may be impounded, and you may be forced to have an ignition interlock device installed. The consequences can last a lifetime – in Florida, a DUI stays on your record for 75 years.

Can you beat a DUI charge? Yes – but only with the right DUI defense lawyer on your side. Make sure you know your rights, and make sure you talk to me right away. I’ll build a strong defense that levels the playing field.

I’m a Lakeland trial attorney with over 25 years of legal experience in district and state courtrooms throughout Florida. I’m passionate about this area of law because I love to win and love being the last line of defense for each client. I also regularly attend Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses and seminars, learning from the best – and bring those techniques back to Polk, Pasco, and Hillsborough Counties. I’ve always been a criminal defense attorney, never a prosecutor, and I handle all legal matters personally from start to finish.

One of just four Forensic Lawyer-Scientists in Florida

Science plays a huge role in 21st century criminal cases, especially drug and DUI charges. The police use it to investigate crimes, the prosecution uses it to try to get convictions – and a lot of it is outdated or even debunked. The way to counter those tactics is to get a DUI defense attorney who understands the real science behind these charges.

I am one of just four Florida attorneys to be recognized as an ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist by the American Chemical Society. This requires training in forensic chromatography – ethanol-based analysis used in DUI cases – as well as drug analysis, drug pharmacology, and data interpretation. In other words, I know how to expose non-validated science that police and prosecutors try to use to convict people of crimes, and how to use legitimate, valid science for the benefit of justice. If you need a DUI or drug crime defense attorney, my training as a Lawyer-Scientist will give your case an edge.

I know the real science behind DUI charges. I can take down the prosecution’s evidence.
