Mr. Pennington's extensive expertise and fierce effort were essential to the success of my case. His dedication was unquestionable, and his work ethic was relentless. He accurately set my expectations and was consistently available to assist with any questions or concerns I had throughout the process.
When in court, he aggressively defended my case and emerged victorious. I would highly recommend Mr. Pennington to any individuals looking for a dynamic, motivated, ambitious attorney who truly represents his client's best interests.

4 years ago I thought. I would never get out of the attempted murder charge that was pended on me and that I would never see my future and hope was gone. The day I ran into him he was assigned to my case and I'm telling you it was like touched by an angel because me and my fiance had prayed and hoped for better days and we recievd it and it happened to be chris Pennington. From day 1 he insured me that everything would be okay and to just put my trust in him so I did. Its not easy beating a case when you are a young Black male and Have an appearance to be ganster. Throughout all the 4 months I sat in jail I had so much pain and he helped me afterwards to overcome that. I KNEW I WAS INNOCENT But I was shooken by the prosecution and with chris by my side I felt like lil wayne with no worries. He is truly an inspiration. I never went back to that life After he help me beat my trial. The best layer and public defender in Orlando and without him I would still be behind the bars serving a life sentence. If your reading this Please call he is a miracle worker....I would like to Thank him and hope he reads this and much love to his firm.

As I went through the list of things to review for Mr. Pennington, I did not have to hesitate for even a moment before clicking on the highest score I could give him.
I hired Mr. Pennington as my lawyer for my divorce proceedings. At no time did I ever feel as though he was not completely on my side and with my best interests at his full attention. He made a rather stessful situation pretty much a breeze!
I would gladly recommend him to anyone who needs someone who is not afraid to speak up for you during a time that you really need one!

Mr. Pennington handled my traffic citation that was issued due to a video camera installed at an intersection. He researched the relevant court cases for this type of citation and sent me copies to study. He then kept close watch of the current cases, and when the statute was found unconstitutional in a certain jurisdiction, he moved for a dismissal. I imagine that even though this may have been a small case for him, to me, he treated it as if it were just as important as his other cases and was prompt in answering any of my questions, and he did everything necessary for a successful dismissal. I was extremely pleased with his work. He is a very competent and confident attorney and I highly recommend him.

From my experience with Christopher C. Pennington he is a very calm, cool and collect. He is very prefessional, he always stays on top of things and always ready for business. He helped me get through a tough time with my case with ease and no worries. He was very confident in himself and myself, that we would win the case aand we did. Even though we do not speak nor hear from each other my family and I thank him for helping me get that hard time, because if it wasn't for him i wouldn't be where i am today.

Christopher Charles Pennington did a superlative job for me.Christopher Charles Pennington has been a valuable asset to have for me in my cases. He calls back quickly with all the answers I need. He stays on top of all of the important dates. Chris will jump in to help me with any problem I have, whether it’s a question about the case at hand or another situation I am unsure of. I feel that I can always call him and he will help me however he can. I can count on Chris to be on my side There were some things I needed in my case that went above and beyond the normal call of duty and Mr. Pennington delivered in all areas. He has very good people skills and did not ever ‘talk down’ to me, while still speaking in terms I could easily understand. Everything was done in a professional and timely manner and in my case the final results were 100% positive considering what we were up against. Mr. Pennington never mislead me or gave me any false hopes, always covered every possible angle of each twist and turn in the case and in the end he achieved the best result possible for the circumstances. TO say I was pleased is an understatement. I heartily recommend Christopher Charles Pennington if you find yourself in need of a very good defense attorney and especially if you need someone who is willing and able to go that extra mile for his clients.”

Mr. Pennington was recommended to me by a very close friend, for a case involving a Police Officer. Due to The fact that it had involved a member of law enforcement, I knew I was done for when it came time for trial. Even though I did NOTHING wrong.
However, I must say from the very first phone contact I was extremely impressed by his professionalism, his knowledge and understanding of the law. As I self taught family law non attorney, who understands the law a great deal myself, this rising STAR has a very successful lifelong career in the years to come. You would be just as honored by the outcome of your case as I was with mine.
Mr. Pennington had filed a motion on my behalf and the case was DISMISSED before it even made it to trail. Without even one court appearance, How’s that for legal maneuvers? Great right!!!
It would be in your best interest at the very least, to pick you the phone and make that call. His consultations are even free. Can’t beat that.!!!!
I stand behind Mr. Pennington and would recommended that you pick up the phone right now and make that call, it’s a free call, a Knowledgeable, Aggressive, Passionate, Honest young man is waiting to address your personal needs today.
I am a lifelong client. you should be one too.

In 2008 I was charged with Assault w/ intent (5-10yrs), Assault w/ a deadly weapon (5-10yrs) and Firing a gun in public (0-2yrs). At the time Christopher was a public defender and was appointed to my case. After a year and a half, lots of tears, fear and doubt in the court room, Christopher got me off w/ a year of probation and 20hrs community service. If you ask me, I owe this man 20 years of my life. I understand that Christopher takes our victory as a job well done but he truly saved my life. Today I am a Staff Sergeant in the Army and am currently deployed in Camp Buehring, Kuwait. I am about to buy my first house and it goes with out saying that I owe it all to his dedication and hard work. Thanks again Cris and I hope you all the success you deserve.

Mr. Pennington helped me with my divorce and I could not have asked for a better attorney. You always hear negative things about how lawyers are only in it for the money, but this is one lawyer who truly seems to care. Not only will I continue to go to him for my legal matters, I will recommend him to my friends and my family. This was my first experience with a lawyer and to be honest, I was weary. I did talk to a few lawyers before deciding on Mr. Pennington and I couldn't possibly regret my choice. He was the only one that showed that he genuinely cared about what I was going through and always made sure I knew my best interests were important to him.
If you are looking for someone who gets the job done while ensuring that your needs and wants are met, I suggest you hire Mr. Pennington. You will not be disappointed!

Chris Pennington was assigned to my case when he was a public defender. It was at a very desperate time in my life and I didn't know who to trust. He gained my trust very easily with his confidence and professionalism. The way he let me know what to expect and be prepared for let me know I was in good hands. I felt very comfortable explaining to him my side of the case and he was able to take my information and present it in a way that was appropriate for the courtroom. At times it seemed he went above and beyond what would normaly be expected of him. I watched as the prosecution floundered while Mr Pennington stayed in control every moment. I felt very fortunate to have him on my side and in the end we got the verdict we deserved.
If I ever needed any type of legal services again without a doubt he would be the first person I turn to because I know he is capable of handling it the best way possible.

Mr. Pennington being my third attorney in my criminal legal battle was the only attorney of the three that achieved positive results in my case. He was able to get a reduction in my probation after I served approx. 30 percent of the probationary sentence. Most people at least serve 50 percent, Mr. Pennington put my older, supposedly better original attorney teams to shame. His level of competence at my hearing was second to none and I would recommend him to anyone anytime.
