I am sitting here struggling to find the words to describe how much I appreciate mr. Dicembre, mr. Palamountain, and the rest of the staff. I NEVER thought I would need a lawyer. But due to giving someone a ride who a dropped pill bottle in my car, an illegal stop, and a felony charge I hired mr. Dicembre in 2012. Once bailed out I called lawyers and tried to explain my situation (I hadn't done anything wrong.. Misunderstanding) before finding mr. dicembre I googled best orlando criminal attorney and got in touch with some attorneys who wouldn't even take 5 minutes to listen to my story.. "Pay me first" they said, "I'll look into it once I get paid"and general responses about drug diversion court, I was being treated like a criminal and I was feeling scared and alone. So I began searching for a lawyer with in person consultations because I just wanted my lawyer to know MY story before I hired them, that is how I found mr. Dicembre. I came prepared and met with mr. Palamountain he listened and asked questions, treated me like a friend not a criminal he was professional, extremely knowledgable, but also the kind of guy any man would want to "go have a beer with". I felt so relieved someone heard my story and understood. I hired the firm, met with Mr. Dicembre and felt great I had someone "on my side". Case was investigated, dismissed, and pending expungement. Was not the cheapest lawyer I found initially, but all the included "extras" they did for me would have doubled the rate at those initial lawyers I talked to. They even took time to call my mom who was having a hard time with the realities of her son facing serious jail time. My mom felt a lot better about my innocence after the phone call. That's the kind of people I was looking for- PEOPLE WHO CARE.
I was facing 15 years in my trafficking case, I interviewed with two Lawyers, After meeting with Mr Dicembre It was imediatley clear to me that I was meeting with the best of the best. It was a very difficult time for my family and I, I was very depressed and honestly thought of the worse possible outcome. I have never met someone like Michael Dicembre, he was outstanding in my case. He did everything in his power to protect me and I am forever grateful for his dedication. He personally handled my case from begining to end, If I ever get in trouble again! I will not hesitate to call Michael again...I send many blessings his way: HE SAVED MY LIFE- IF YOU DONT BELIEVE THIS IS A REAL REVIEW...GO MEET WITH HIM AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN- By the way CASE DISMISSED!!!(Michael, If you read this: Thanks again for being an amazing Lawyer & I hope you understand what an impact you made on this client)
Mr. Dicembre is intelligent, precise, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. His ability to lay out the details of plans and proceedings of the case and then provide updates throughout the legal process made conducting this stressful business a positive experience. Michael has been a consummate professional, providing great attention to detail as the case unfolded and as things changed, he consistently provided necessary information while taking decisive action. Being a client that has asked often for details or explanation, I truly appreciated Michael’s responsiveness and thorough work. His overall knowledge and professional prowess in the legal arena are most impressive as he maintains a calm, confident demeanor - even when a client exhibits stress. While it is difficult to be in a position requiring a legal defense, Mr. Dicembre made this process a positive one for us and the successful outcome was impressive.
Referred to him by one of the top criminal lawyers in Gainesville, FL, Mr. Dicembre is a professional, trustworthy, reliable attorney. He is effective in his communications with the state, he is speedy in answering any questions, and his staff is amazing. They always send mail, leave e-mail, and a voice mail whenever there is an update pertaining to the case. Amazing attorney & firm in general. One of Orlando's best.
About a year ago my son was riding in a car with frieds who had some drugs with them and he was charged with possession. Mr Dicembre was able to get the case dropped and my son's name was cleared. We are very happy with how he handled the case. Thank you!
