  • Truly a blessing in a very dark situation

    “THE BEST DEFENSE LAWYER! Never would I have imagined that I would be on the search for a lawyer, but it happened. Paul Petruzzi is extremely knowledgeable and he demonstrated a high degree of compassion and understanding in helping me with my case. From the start he seemed extremely confident in his ability to get me the best result possible. Something other lawyers weren’t to convincing on. As my Federal case continued all his promises were justified for. Through out my experience I witnessed the level of respect the Federal world has for Paul from the guards all the way up to the Judges. I recall several workers mentioning to me “wow Paul Petruzzi is your lawyer he is really good”. Let me also mention his team is AWESOME!!!! Christy, Betty, and Mauricio are always there to answer questions, even afterhours on their personal phones. They truly made me feel like a part of the family as if we knew each other our entire lives. Thank you team Petruzzi you where truly a blessing in a very dark situation.”

  • Paul's first interest is always his clients, not his pocket

    “Lawyers Can Be Trusted. Only God could have given me such a lawyer! Honest, confident, trustworthy and human. Paul's first interest is always his clients, not his pocket. Only someone who has gone through the experience that I have been through can tell you how hard it is to be arrested for a Federal Crime and to come home to your family from having no bond to being home with your loved ones. Paul and his staff treat all clients with respect and priority. Never have I seen such professionalism and kindness from a lawyer. Paul understands his clients and works for them. Paul is respected not only form his clients but also his colleges and judges. It's a good feeling when you have a lawyer that you trust and also respect, that gets you results not promises ... You need a good lawyer, hire the best hire Paul Petruzzi !”

  • I'd recommend him anytime!

    “I hired Mr. Petruzzi for a pending criminal matter. From the beginning, he answered all of my questions and was very clear. His office staff was always attentive. During my sentencing, Mr. Petruzzi fought really hard to get me a sentence reduction before a very difficult judge and he was successful. He was able to keep his calm and got me double of what the government recommended. I'd recommend him anytime! Thanks Mr. Petruzzi!”

  • I would highly recommend Mr. Petruzzi, you won't regret

    “Paul D. Petruzzi is one of the most prominent attorneys I know. Mr. Petruzzi has proven many times to be a great attorney, and although I thought I would never find myself needing any legal representation, I did and attorney Paul Petruzzi was the right choice. He relived a headache I had for months concerning a traffic ticket that would have cost me over $200.00. I would highly recommend Mr. Petruzzi, you wont regret it. ”

  • I received the best legal representation

    “I was very fortunate to have been referred to Paul by a fellow inmate at the Miami Detention Center. Not only do I believe I received the best legal representation, but I was also truly grateful that Paul was so willing to handle my personal affairs for me during my incarceration. He facilitated the sales of my house and truck, and set up a trust account for me to receive commissary funds for the duration of my incarceration. He and his staff were always willing to help me in any way they were able. I have been released from prison for over 4 years now, and Paul is still willing to answer any legal questions I might have, gratis and time permitting. I would recommend him to anyone.”

  • He was able to answer all of my questions and everything he said turned out to be true

    “I retained Mr. Petruzzi after going through another horrible attorney which I won't name. I was so surprised that I could actually reach him over the phone. Initially, he made me no promises and only spoke to me about what my options were. He actually took the time to review discovery with me, discuss all my possible options, and when it was time for my sentencing, he actually discussed the entire process with my family too. I was so surprised that for Mr. Petruzzi it wasn't all about the money. Rather, he seemed to care about me. Another great thing about Mr. Petruzzi is how knowledgeable he is. He was able to answer all of my questions and every thing he said turned out to be true. I would highly recommend Mr. Petruzzi.”

  • Paul is a compassionate lawyer with a heart of gold

    “After having fired our first attorney just a few months after my incarceration, i was referred Paul Petruzzi and it was the best move we made. Paul is a compassionate lawyer with a heart of gold. He is not like the majority that do NOT pick up their phone calls and contact you back, he is one reliable attorney! In addition, his staff is genuinely so sweet and as attentive to his clients. ”

  • Definitely the top criminal defense lawyer in Miami and probably one of the best in the nation

    “Paul is truly an awesome lawyer and definitely the top criminal defense lawyer in Miami and probably one of the best in the nation. He will diligently fight for you from beginning to end and ensure that you get the best outcome. He will see your assets are protected and most importantly he cares about his clients. I have witnessed Paul Petruzzi go above and beyond the call of duty to help clients on a personal level. He spent some of his valuable times ensuring that my close family relatives understood the criminal proceedings and the expected outcome. I received probation from a possible 15 year sentence. If you want a lawyer who is experienced, aggressive when dealing with the law but yet personable and gentle with your loved ones, Paul Petruzzi is your guy!”

  • Paul went above and beyond

    “I recently had the great pleasure of being represented by the Law Offices of Paul Petruzzi with my federal case. Paul went above and beyond with my case and was always available when I needed to speak to him. From the moment of my initial consultation until the conclusion of my case, he diligently worked to get me the best possible outcome for which I am truly thankful for. Paul is very smart and knowledgeable of the law. Also, his paralegal Betty, is a true asset to the office. Betty was always available to answer my calls and meet with me whenever Paul could not. I was never told that I could not come in to speak about my case, even if it was just for five minutes. I, without any reservations, recommended the Law Offices of Paul Petruzzi to anyone who is in need of an excellent criminal defense lawyer and support staff. ”

  • Knowledgeable, hardworking lawyer, dedicated to the best interests of his clients

    “Paul Petruzzi has been representing me for the past 6 months in resolving my suspended driver's license. My case had remained unresolved for the past 5 years due to an OVERWHELMING amount of toll violations accumulated by an ex-husband. Mr.Petruzzi was very professional and straight-forward when presented with my colossal predicament. He patiently explained to me the necessary steps to resolve my case and outlined a plan of action. Mr. Petruzzi filed paperwork, made endless phone calls, and attended all court appearances with me. He was exceptionally knowledgeable in everything that was required to represent me and my case for the most advantageous outcome. I am beyond pleased to say I just attended a final ruling in my case and have been assigned 2 traffic school classes and community service hours in place of the $8000.00 fine. It is simply amazing how excellent the result is of utilizing Mr. Petruzzi's services. I would have never been able to acquire such a favorable ruling in this case without his assistance. I most assuredly recommend his legal services to anyone seeking a knowledgeable, hardworking lawyer, dedicated to the best interests of his clients.”

  • He was a mastermind with how he can maneuver through their minefields and get you the very best results

    “Great technical lawyer with monumental knowledge of the law. Paul is a phenomenal lawyer with an incredible skill in technical strategies. He knows the system well and can direct you through the maze of how the government works to manipulate their way to a successful conviction. I found that he was a mastermind with how he can maneuver through their minefields and get you (me) the very best results without too much pain and suffering. The one thing that Paul will do with great efficiency is find a way to get the least path of resistance and help you get back home as quickly and easily as possible. I admire his candor and forthrightness and how he handled me was perfect in the sense that I was able to get a very short sentence and am home now. If you have gotten yourself in trouble then there is no better lawyer out there to help you get this behind you and home as quickly as possible. ”

  • He defended me, gave me guidance and moral support

    “I met Paul Petruzzi in jail in one of the worst times of my life when I really believed that it was the end, but it was not that way at all. I remember meeting Paul and feeling that sense of relief and trust that I get from very few people. It was then when I hired Paul and He defended me, gave me guidance and moral support in this humongous federal drug-related case I was facing; with an amazing outcome that to be honest, I was very surprised myself. It was a very long process and to make things more complex I was arrested in the state of Florida but my charges were from the state of New York so they wanted to extradite me to NY, but Paul got me out on bail in Florida. I also have to say that his team was very professional and competent. I thank the Lord, Paul Petruzzi, Betty and Mauricio for helping me stay together and not crumble during this difficult challenge.”

  • I have no words to express my gratitude for the patience and attention towards me

    “I'm writing this with the purpose of extending my gratitude to Paul Petruzzi or as I like to refer to him "Paul". When I met him I was in the middle of a thunderstorm. Even though nothing was clear it was certainly not good. My whole world was crumbling down on me and in the confusion of the moment someone recommended what I thought was just another "lawyer". Little that I know that my life was about to change. In the first visit I automatically knew he was dependable, but I had to confess it was a bittersweet experience due to his NO B/S reality check policy. His customer service was excellent with many periodical visits giving me a bird's eye view on how things were moving along. Even when nothing seemed to be happening from my perspective, his team and him, especially his assistant Mauricio - to whom I have no words to express my gratitude for the patience and attention towards me - were there to answer my calls and respond to my questions. Through out the time I have been his customer I have seen him do great things on behalf of my fellow inmates. Many of them recommended personally by me, but obviously his greatest accomplishment, as far as I am concerned, was what he did for me. Thanks to him by the time you are reading this, I'll probably be home with my family. Thank you very much for everything.”

  • One of the best attorneys that I have come across

    “Mr. Petruzzi is to me, one of the best attorneys that I have come across, here in south Florida. He assisted my fiance in a case that was not a criminal case, and he took on the task to assist her. His knowledge and skills, allowed her to receive the required documents needed. Throughout the process, Mr. Petruzzi was always available when needed. He also called and followed up with her, to provide any updates on the case. He also has a great team of staff who at any given time, will answer and returns calls when they are not available, and also after hours. He was never too busy (of course when he was in court or with a client) and made sure to always communicate with his clients, including my fiance. The fact that he took on the case without it being a criminal matter, is what makes this guy a well-round attorney that is able to tackle on any form of defense for his clients. He is determined, passionate, caring, dependable, understanding, awesome, good listener,always on task,energetic, funny, and last he loves what he know best, and that is assisting all of his clients.”

  • Paul is truly the best lawyer out there and you will NEVER regret hiring him

    “No one can ever anticipate being in this situation. My significant other was arrested and it was a nightmare. After consulting with 6 others lawyers, and getting the same response I was devastated. I was being told that he was looking into 5-7 years imprisonment. Paul was the last lawyer I visited, and after being in his office for 5 minutes I instantly knew that he was the one. He was the only lawyer that instead of bashing the situation was knowledgeable enough to look for ways in order to get the minimal sentence possible. I was so emotional, had so many questions and was constantly calling and texting, him and his team ALWAYS kept their patience with me and answered all my concerns. His entire staff in the office is just exceptional; they all truly work as a team and make you feel so comfortable. After the case came to the end Paul told me “I am still your lawyer, and anything you need you call me”. I will never forget those words, Paul is truly the best lawyer out there and you will NEVER regret hiring him. Thank You Paul, and his team for helping us get though such a difficult situation.”

    “You are in good hands with this office. A few months ago, I unfortunately became subject to a criminal charge and hired Paul's office to handle it. My attorney, Beatriz, was on top of my case from the moment I hired them. She is very knowledgeable of the law, nice, always available, and worked hard for me to bring my case to a favorable resolution. Also, the support staff was always available and tended my calls and needs when my attorney was not available. No matter who I spoke to, my experience was always professional and courteous. I highly recommended this office, and Beatriz, to anyone who is facing a criminal charge. A+”
