Mr. Pearlman represented me in violation of probation case recently. I was in jail for almost five months trying to fight the VOP with a public defender representing me. When the judge told me they wanted to give me five years in prison we reached out and hired Mr. Pearlman immediately. As soon as Mr. Pearlman was on the case he started doing the front work needed to get me out of the violation. It took around a week for him to get me back into the court room where he was able to get the violation completely dismissed. He accomplished more in a few days then my public defender was able to do in five months. The minute I met Mr. Pearlman I stopped worrying about what would happen in the court room. He was very confident and assured me that he would take care of this and that I had nothing to worry about. He was very kind and courteous when we spoke, he listened to what I had to say and afterwards he was very honest with what was going on. He is extremely sharp and upholds a high standard of professionalism. In my opinion he is a role model to what all lawyers should strive to be. When Lee was first on my case he was very easy to get a hold of and if he wasn't available he would get in contact with me in a short amount of time. He kept me informed on the case the entire time, if I had any questions he would answer them straight no beating around the bush like most lawyers do. He even took the time to follow up with me the night I was released from jail to see how I was doing and let me know if I had any questions or concerns to please contact him. I would highly recommend Mr. Pearlman to anybody who is in an unfortunate situation with this crazy legal system. He is absolutely someone you want to have fighting on your side. The fact is I wouldn't be free today if it wasn't for him.

After spending thousands of dollars on another attorney, who consequently failed to inform me of critical information the day I was scheduled to plead guilty to DUI, I decided to research alternative representation and postpone my plea. After extensive research, I contacted Mr. Lee Pearlman. As you can imagine, the idea of spending more money on legal representation was not something I was thrilled about, and quite frankly, I was not sure if it was a wise decision. That is, until I spoke with Lee. His approach was much different from my previous attorney, who essentially advised me to plead guilty. Although my previous attorney attempted to get the DUI reduced to reckless driving (offering 10 volunteered days in jail), he was unsuccessful and the state liked their chances at trial. Bottom line, I didn’t feel comfortable with my current attorney in a trial situation, so I hired Lee. Lee was very professional and receptive to my questions/concerns. As we prepared for trial, I realized I made the right decision. He demonstrated great knowledge of DUI law and experience with Pinellas County’s court system. He was honest and very forthcoming when informing me of potential outcomes. On the last business day before trial, the state contacted Lee and informed him that they did not want to take the case to trial and subsequently offered a reduction to a “wet” reckless driving. Given that my previous attorney was unsuccessful at reducing the DUI (even with offering 10 days in jail); I realized that Lee’s REPUTATION is what convinced the state to reduce the charge. As a result, I didn’t have to go to trail, no jail time, and no DUI conviction. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. I highly recommend Lee Pearlman for legal representation.

About a year ago I was potentially looking at a felony conviction for a mistake & misunderstanding I was involved in that occured one evening. Being a local businessman and contributing member of society and the community for years, I couldn't let this injustice happen and potentially tarnish my reputation that I have worked hard to build over the years. Immediately, I extensively and dilligently researched and interviewed several local criminal defense attorneys in the Tampabay area to find the best and brightest to represent me in my case to ensure that justice was done. Lee Pearlman's name kept coming up. After meeting with him and being referred to him through yet ANOTHER contact, I decided that Lee Pearlman was my man and he would represent me in my case.Lee took the time to be honest and forthright with me regarding the realities of my case. He advised me on the best way to handle the case, step by step and the steps to take in order to get the best possible outcome. He advised me of all scenarios - both best case and worst case - all the while assuring me of my likely positive outcome. He took the time to explain things to me and ALWAYS called me back. He never left me hanging, which other attorneys I've dealt with sometimes have a tendency to do and not get back to you on things.Needless to say there was no felony conviction and Lee got me a near best-case scenario outcome that I was VERY happy with and VERY thankful for. Justice was done in my case and Lee Pearlman made sure of it!If you're looking for the areas best sharp criminal defense attorney, Lee Pearlman is your man. I highly recommend him. He will take care of you and get the job done. Thanks Lee!

Mr. Lee Pearlman, with Denmon Pearlman, came highly recommended from a close friend. My twenty - two year old son was facing serious criminal charges that if convicted, could have had a devastating impact on his future. Prior to procuring services from Mr. Pearlman, I was exceedingly uneasy about the consequences my son could encounter, which included a possible mandatory prison sentence as well as recieving a felony conviction. After my free consultation with Mr. Pearlman in June of this year, I left with a profound reassurance that he would do everything in his capacity to help my son. I was instantly moved with Mr. Pearlman's commitment to my son's case in that prior to my ability to pay the necessary retainer fee upfront, he still represented my son at his scheduled hearing four days after my initial consultation. Over the short course of awaiting my son's sentencing, the staff at Denmon Pearlman, whom I had direct contact with where all tremendously obliging and extremely resourceful. As a single, professional mother they also accommodated me with an affordable payment plan in exchange for expert representation. Our experience with Mr. Pearlman, and Denmon Pearlman, was without uncertainty ideal!  My son's plea and sentencing hearing took place this morning and he received a misdameneor charge, minimal probation sentence and minor court fines. Thank you again Lee, and Denmon Pearlman, for representing my son with dignity, compassion and the highest level of skilled professionalism!

I hired Mr. Ellzey for my divorce and custody case. I knew he cared because when I explained how my husband was abusing the legal system and using lies to take my kids from me, he shared how he went through a similar situation that was the reason he went to law school. I almost cried when I realized how he was not just a slimy lawyer out to make a buck but that he was there to help me when other lawyers told me I was going to lose and wanted to take my money and give away my kids to a freak. He helped me to understand the uncaring legal process and made sure I make good decisions during a tough time. He stood up for me and my kids. Not only did my husband and his lawyers not get away with what they thought they were going to do to me. Howard listened to my endless drama then made me work to help him put together evidence he used at trial to show the judge what the truth really was after hearing a bunch of lies. My husband and his lawyer didn´t know what hit them because we had our story and our facts straight and could prove it. The judge did not like what my husband tried to do to me, so he found the tables turned and ended up on the losing end! The truth prevailed and my kids are now having a happy and normal life thanks to Howard´s caring attention.

I hired Lee Pearlman in August of last year. I found him through friends of friends. Hiring Mr. Pearlman to represent me was the best decision I EVER could have made for the situation I was in. He is the most responsible, knowledgeable, and respectable person I have ever met. He was there any time I needed to talk or had questions about my case. He was just a phone call or text away. He took care of everything from the day I hired him. Whether it was paperwork, things I needed to do, or things he was going to take care of, he was always on top of it. That period was the worst period of my life and Mr. Pearlman was always there explaining everything that was going on. He was always such a comfort. He was very thorough in explaining the situation, but also very understanding and considerate in how he spoke. I always knew he was doing what was best for me and my case. We received an amazing outcome for my case. I never thought that it was going to be possible. He resolved my case before having to go to trial, which was huge for me. I will continue to recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney.

Words cannot even begin to describe how lucky I am to have had the pleasure of having Mr. Pearlman & Mr. Clark represent me these past two and a half years. They helped fight for my rights on a first degree felony charge against a persistent state prosecutor who had a personal vendetta against me. I knew from the first day I met Lee & Jeremy that they were the best defense attorneys in the Tampa Bay Area, if not the state of Florida. After two hung juries and countless hours of prepping and sleepless nights, the third jury verdict of NOT GUILTY bought my family and I to tears. If it wasn't for Lee Pearlman & Jeremy Clark, I have no idea where I would be today. I am a registered nurse and graduate next month to become a Nurse Practitioner. All because of Mr. Pearlman and Mr. Clark's heartfelt persistence to prove my innocent I will be able to do just that. I kept thinking maybe the third times the charm, when in reality finding Lee Pearlman and Jeremy Clark was the real charm.

I had the misfortune one evening, while walking my dog, of running into an extremely reckless police officer who decided to arrest me for absolutely no reason at all. I was charged with only one thing. Resisting arrest without violence (A class D misdemeanor) which of course begs the question “Arrest for what?” I am 51 years old with a clean record and a conceal carry permit. So I retained Mr. Pearlman. Despite our bad luck of getting a draconian judge who denied our motion to dismiss the case, it was nevertheless reduced to a civil infraction literally the day before the trial was to begin with no fines or court costs. All thanks to Lee. There are plenty of slimy lawyers out there as we all know. I assure you that Lee is not one of them. If you are smart and want the best results for a reasonable fee, hire Lee Pearlman. As you can clearly read for yourself from the many reviews, including mine, Lee is the man. Period.

Getting into a situation requiring a defense attorney is a stressful and terrifying experience, at least for me it was. Lee Pearlman was open and honest with me about my situation from the start. While he was great at assuring me about things that he had under control, he was also quick to point out things that could go badly, which I appreciated very much. His perspective and honesty helped me to believe in his assessments through all of the ups and downs of a long legal battle.Attorneys are not inexpensive. However, you absolutely get what you pay for. When I compare how Lee handled my case to others that had a similar situation that had either public defenders or cut-rate lawyers, I realized that it was an investment in my own future and one that I know paid off. In other words, Lee's fees have already paid for themselves in spades.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
