Mr. Leppard is awesome at what he does. I was stressed out about an incident that had occurred with my family and Mr. Leppard spoke with the state attorney and got my case DISMISSED🙏🙏🙏 He also was always available when I needed to speak with him. Matter of fact he accepted my case on a weekend and most law firms are closed on the weekend but Mr.Leppard was available. I would refer him to anyone that is seeking an criminal defense attorney!!!!! Thanks again, Regina Fullwood

My family needed some professional help. We, "not being familiar with this arena of life", called quite a few attorneys and started explaining our situation. I tell you, we were not impressed as we felt the only thing we were getting was an extremely expensive attorney and their primary concern seemed to be just that, when can you pay. However, it was refreshing to talk to Brian as money was not the first primary concern, but rather, we felt a heartfelt concern about our situation and a genuine desire from him to help. He explained everything to us as far as potential expectations both positive and negative and assured us that with his experience, he would work his ass off to argue on our behalf to bring forth reasonable solutions that would not only satisfy the law requirements while at the same time, not throw the family under the bus. Through the whole process, Brian was on top of it and something else; I never texted or called him without getting an immediate response to the text or phone. I was totally impressed with that! In the end, I feel like I made a new friend, who happens to be a damn good criminal defense attorney. Thanks Brian.

Mr. Hornsby came highly recommended by several people I trust in the Orlando Area. After forgetting my concealed weapon in my purse while going through MCO, I found myself for the first time ever needing a criminal defense attorney. Within a few short hours after taking on my case, Mr. Hornsby was hard at work with getting the ball in motion. He took the time to discuss my options and what he felt may be the best possible outcome. Mr. Hornsby was professional, courteous, realistic, clear, concise and responsive. He was able to get my case dismissed, and I would highly recommend him to anyone for criminal defense. Thank you Mr. Hornsby for your hard work and effort. I learned a valuable lesson from you; to hire an attorney earlier on in any process that may require one.

Attorney Congelossi prepared TWO motions for modification of my probation and BOTH were approved by the judge, even as the state's attorney was objecting. He made sure that all of the ducks were in a row, was clear and concise with what we were asking of the judge, and didn't waste the court's time with meaningless arguments. He was 110% honest with me and never gave me a feeling of false hope; like other attorneys do that lead you to believe that the world is all rainbows and sunshine. He explained both the pro's and the con's and made sure that we were prepared to achieve the best outcome but also gave me worst case scenarios. That is something that was greatly appreciated and speaks volumes to his character. I will not hesitate to contact Nick or his firm for any further legal assistance! Thank you Nick!

I’ve had extensive experience with attorneys in the past, transactional attorneys, (corporate, contract attorneys) litigation attorney’s, family law (divorce, child custody) even criminal defense lawyers when my son got into some trouble. I never thought it would happen to me, but I found myself in the fight of my life looking at literally DECADES in prison if I was convicted and I never served more than a day in jail! SCARED TO DEATH, I consulted with 5 criminal defense attorneys leaving with reservations every time, scare tactics, non-chalet attitudes, exorbitant retainers, vaguely answered questions, some seeming more interested in how I was paying vs the specifics of my case. I wasn’t sure what to do! I spent hours researching, networking, trying to find the right attorney that was knowledgeable, tenacious, with a proven track record that would fight for me; then I found attorney Michael T. Mackhanlall. First, his AVVO rating was a perfect 10 out of 10. At the time he had over 58 reviews from his clients on AVVO and they were all 5 STAR REVIEWS! When reading his client reviews, some adjectives used to describe Michael T Mackhanlall are professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, honest, hard-working, diligent, tenacious, razor-sharp, efficient, effective, attentive, noble, comforting, insightful, eloquent, and highly respected in the legal community. He even had over 40 attorney endorsements at the time! I researched practically every criminal defense lawyer in Orlando and encountered many criminal defense attorneys with decades more experience than Mr. Mackhanlall, but with less than 1/10 of the accolades he’s received from clients and attorneys alike in just a few years of practice! I read his bio and found he served in the Airforce and was chosen for Airman of the year in 2005; to put that into perspective there were over 330,00 active duty airman in 2014; that’s a big deal! I thought Mike Mackhanlall was too good to be true! But after meeting with Mike, I knew like many others he was the one, he would definitely fight for me, I felt all the accolades were true and Mike Mackhanlall proved it many times during the fight of my life and he was by my side every step of the way! He explained what happened to me from a legal perspective, he told me what would happen in the future, what the opposition was aiming for, he articulated a plan of action and to top it off his fees were very reasonable and cost effective for such a knowledgeable lawyer! When I left his office I slept all night for the first time in months! He predicted everything that eventually happened, Mike always made me feel like my case was top priority, he answered my calls and emails promptly, he was proactive and would just pop up with useful tidbits of information, updates, reminders HE CONTACTED ME WITHOUT ASKING MANY TIMES AND IN MY EXPERIENCE LAWYERS RARELY ARE SO PROACTIVE! I Felt like he was fighting for me as hard as he would fight for himself! The most impressive part was how he argued my case using legal precedents, the opposition having an ah-ha moment realizing “oh we can’t do that” then Mike took over & it seemed like the opposition worked for him; he ran over them like a MACK TRUCK LOL! I received the best outcome for my situation and I’m convinced without Mike fighting for me I would be in a different place right now! If I could turn back the clock I would have used Mike Mackhanlall for my separation, divorce and child custody cases, I’m sure the outcome would have been better with Mack Law P.A on my side! THANKS MIKE!

Mr. Avallone (Larry to most) did a fantastic job with my case. I received the absolute best outcome possible, given my situation. He found several mistakes and used them to my advantage. His massive legal knowledge and experience in the courtroom and in law enforcement showed me that I made an excellent choice for a defense attorney. Not only would I use him again (I sure hope I never have too!), but I already have recommended him to all my friends and family should they ever need a quality defense attorney to fight for them. Thanks again Larry! Sincerely, John Sheridan

Child Custody Case---The final result was exactly what I wanted-50/50 time sharing agreement. Mr. Thompson and his team did an outstanding job throughout the entire process. He performed quickly and was very responsive in answering all of my questions and concerns. I felt like he was in my corner and was definitely looking out for my best interest. One thing that does stand out is Mr Thompson will not beat around the bush. He is a straight shooter and will not waste any of your time. My overall experience with Mr Thompson as my attorney was outstanding and I would highly recommend his services.
