I DONT RECOMMEND ARTURO AS A LAWYER TO NO ONE!! NOT ONLY DID HE SAY I WOULD BE GOING TO PRISON TO MAKE ME LOOSE HOPE BUT AS WELL TOOK MY MONEY.. I COMMITED A CRIME OF BURGLARY BACK IN THE ENDING OF 2009 AND NEEDED SOME ONE TO REPRESENT ME. A FAMILY MEMBER OF MINE RECOMMENDED ME TO HIM. FIRST COURT APPEARANCE HE TOLD ME THERES NOTHING MUCH HE CAN DO THAT HE WILL TRY HIS BEST BUT HE SEE'S ME GOING TO PRISON FOR 2 YEARS. OFCOURSE I DIDNT HIRE HIM AND WITH JUST A PUBLIC DEFENDER I GOT 4 YEARS PROBATION WITH 2 YR EARLY TERMINATION. IN MY FIRST YEAR ON PROBATION I VIOLATED MY PROBATION WITH TECHNICAL VIOLATIONS. BEING INCARCERATED MY MOTHER DECIDED TO USE ARTURO TO REPRESENT ME WHICH SHE PAID HIM UPFRONT $2,000 THAT WERE MINE SAVED. NOW HE WASNT DOING NOTHING TO GET ME OUT OF JAIL. MY MOTHER FIRED HIM THE DAY BEFORE I WENT TO COURT BECAUSE HE WASNT READY AND HAD MORE THEN A MONTH TO WORK ON MY CASE. OFCOURSE SHE HIRED A NEW LAWYER AND I WAS OUT IN THE FOLLOWING MONTH. DURING THE TIME I WAS INCARCERATED MY MOTHER WENT TO HIS OFFICE IN HIALEAH TO ASK HIM FOR THE MONEY BACK, THAT SHE PAID HIM BECAUSE HE DID NOT EVEN REPRESENTED ME AS MY LAWYER AND HE HIGHLY DISRESPECTED MY MOTHER BY YELLING AT HER AND INSULTING ME ASWELL WHICH MY MOTHER HAD RECORDED THE CONVO. MY MOM LEFT FURIOUS AND WHEN I WAS INFORMED I TOLD HER DONT WORRY I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THAT LAWYER TO NO ONE AND WILL LET IT BE KNOWN TO THE PUBLIC HIS A POOR EXCUSE OF A MAN..

When I was in jail going into the court room the bailiff seen arturo and said " HEY THERE GOES SHOWTIME" and I asked her who she was takking about and she pointed at him. I told her that was my lawyer and she said word for word " you're lucky, he is awesome!" He is well known and has alot of resources. He will fight your case all the way to the end. So, long story short, if you are looking for a attorney that has trial experience, great criminal law knowledge, and is very outspoken in court, this is who you are looking for.

Arturo is a great person aside from a excellent lawyer. He knows what hes doing when it comes to law, He loves his career,he loves his people and most important of all he will represent you.
