St. Petersburg DUI and Car Accident Attorneys

The St. Petersburg Car Accident Attorneys at Whittel & Melton are all former DUI prosecutors and Assistant State Attorneys. This perspective gives us a distinct advantage in handling car accident cases our client has been hit or killed by an impaired driver.

DUI cases are extremely unique under Florida law because they may involve scientific evidence, which is heavily regulated by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). If the proper procedures aren’t followed by law enforcement when they obtain a breath sample or a blood sample, the evidence may be inadmissible at court--which essentially eviscerates a criminal DUI charge and will unfavorably impact a civil action taken by a victim of a St. Petersburg DUI crash.

You need an attorney who understands DUI so that your rights are protected as you seek justice for the negligence of a DUI driver.

St. Petersburg DUI Accident Attorneys at Whittel & Melton are available 24 hours a day to assist you with your DUI motor vehicle case. Once we are contacted, we will set up a free consultation to discuss the specifics of your case with you and offer advice on what we think you are entitled to under Florida law.

We have offices conveniently located in Downtown St. Petersburg, as well as Tampa.

Many times, our firm is able to secure medical treatment for our clients--even if they don’t have health insurance-- as well as obtain financial compensation for damages and other costs associated with their accident while their case is pending.

If you are a victim of a Pinellas County DUI car accident, we will represent your interests with the State Attorney’s Office while we fight for financial compensation for your injuries and loss.

The whole staff at Whittel & Melton was nice and always ready to help. However, I worked mostly with Jason. He demonstrated that he understood what to expect with our case and better that he cared about what was happening. I was very pleased with the outcome of our case. G.S.
