Glenn did an excellent job representing me. I found him to be professional, knowledgeable and thorough in every detail. Hopefully I will never need an attorney to represent me in another criminal case, but if I did I wouldn't hesitate to use Glenn again.

I hired Mrs. Dawson to represent me as an attorney for a Family Court case that turned Criminal. This case was for a same sex relationship. As much as we would like to think same sex people are not discriminated in the court system (I unfortunately felt a small amount of prejudice). It was hard calling around the lawyers explaining the situation and receiving price quotes. I was connected with Mrs Dawson through thumbtack thinking it would make the process of finding an attorney less grouling. If you have any doubt on hiring Mrs Dawson to represent you, stop now and hire her. she is amazing! A true professional and very knowledgable with the court system and laws. She made my case a breeze and I also felt she was on my side without prejudice & judgement of who I am. Made very confident and comfortable. She had just the right balance of compassion and professionalism and was able to "tell it like it is" including all of my options and rights I had moving forward in court. After hiring her my case moved along quickly and she took complete charge. I cannot say enough good things about my experience dealing with Mrs Dawson! Her presence makes you feel comfortable and confident. She tells it like it is, makes no false hopes and gets it done for you. She worked hard on my case and made it look like a cynch on her part. I had little to do once I hired her. Her pricing is very fair. I felt I received a lot for my money. Communication was quick and perfect. Thank you Mrs Dawson. If I ever need to use her again, I will 100% and I will also recommend her to friends, family and colleagues 100% I am overly joyful with the outcome of my case and having the chance to work with Mrs Dawson. Some attorneys just try to get things over with as quick as possible and sometimes using methods that can effect you later in life. Mrs Dawson fought for the outcome I received, didn't just wait to see what would happen or take the easiest escape route possible. Truly amazed by this attorneys job done on my case!!

Atty Kowar is very courteous & diligent.Any time I had a question or inquiry about my case he called me promptly unless he was in court. If not for him the outcome of my case would of been much worse. I have a very serious charge.He kept me calm because of his extensive knowledge of criminal law.Atty Kowar cares about his clients & is very clear of what needs to be done. His price is fair because he takes into consideration of the fees that have to be payed to the court.I highly recommend him to any one.

    Matthew Brissenden Is by far one of the best lawyers I have seen he is so persistent and attentive. I was able to call him at any time of day and he would instantly get back to me. I live in Florida and never meet him but felt like he lived down the street, that is how attentive he is. My husband had a tough case with four convictions including a felony that needed to be vacaded for immigration purposes. Matthew handled the case properly and quick. He got the charges vacaded in a little over a month. Matthew was like an angel for my family and I. Now my husband will be able to stay this country. I thank God for Matthew Brisseden to me he is the best lawyer alive.

    This attorney is the BEST!!! HE HAS SAVED ME FROM CRIMINAL COURT!!! Edward Palermo is the BEST attorney ever. I met Edward for a consultation & because of my situation, I must have been crying for at least half of it. Edward is such a sympathetic kind attorney, He listens without judging & goes out of his way to help his clients. I walked in his office with no hope in a state of extreme shock, confusion, & beyond devastation. But this wonderful altruistic attorney saved me from it all. Ed Palermo truly saved my life at least 2x & saved my naive heart & soul from something so awful that I never would have survived it. He believed my words of truth & my PURELY INNOCENT intentions, in which I foolishly tried to handle a situation myself, in an effort to NOT get a person I cared for in ANY trouble with ANY agencies. Ed believed me, my truth, & saw the truth in my naive eyes. I am a person that has NEVER even gotten detention in school, EVER. So to have been faced with what I was faced with, was beyond anything I could even comprehend or have handled. I was innocent. I am innocent. Ed believed me & worked so hard to do whatever he could to help me. He took me on as his client knowing I didn't have all I needed up front if God Forbid it had went to court. He said I can pay him in payments which were so extremely fair and reasonable. Thank God it didn't go to court. Ed saved me from that & I will be thankful for the rest of my life to Edward Palermo. I feel like he has given me a 2nd chance at life. To this day I still wake up shaking & crying from nightmares from that situation, but then I realize it was just a bad dream & I am ok because Ed Palermo saved my life. He came along with a life jacket literally just in time, when I was drowning in pain & extreme fear-scared to death.Ed always responds even now months later when I happen to see this person around town, & I text Ed terrified/trembling out of fear/flashbacks-Ed always puts me at ease & answers back immediately. Just knowing God Forbid I am in any other situation-that I can get help from Ed, is a gift from God. He is the most loyal dedicated kindhearted attorney that TRULY DOES CARE ABOUT HIS CLIENTS. THANK YOU SO MUCH! His secretary and receptionist is so sweet and kind also. She was so extremely sympathetic and kind to me each time I went to see Edward in his office. She was so reassuring just like Edward and she put me at ease as well. Thank God for this firm! Ed you are the best attorney & I am forever grateful! I am still standing today because of you. Thanks to you I now believe in miracles :) You are my lifesaver & an angel on earth. No matter how many months or years go by, I will never forget what you did for me. Everyday that goes by, I am thankful to you. You really did save my life. Thank you so much Edward Palermo-the world needs more people like you.

    Finest lawyer I've ever known! If it hadn't been for him and his team, I would in all likelihood be living out the remainder of my days in the federal prison for crime I did not commit. An honest, skillful and dedicated attorney that personally invests himself in his clients well being. The finest lawyer anyone could hope to have.
