Posted by a Criminal Defense client,
i never been arrested before or dealt with any situtation where i had to hire and attorney before, so i know its hard to trust anyone, specially knowing that there are alot of attorneys that only work on their best interest to collect the money and dont really care about the well being of their clients , When i hired Andrew smallman i had no idea on how the courtsystem worked and i was scared , scared that i could be facing time for something i didnt do , i was a victim of police brutality facing 4 charges and 3 of them being felonies. in the begining when all of this happened i first hired and attorney in miami all he did was use scare tactics and tel me that most likely i would be facing time , he would show up late to court , not answer my phone calls etc , inside something told me that i needed another attorney , someone that belived me , someone that could understand what i was going through , i started calling other attorneys and thats when i met Andrew Smallman, i set up an appointment to see him, after speaking with him i decided that he was the right one for the job, and i was right, HE WAS ALWAYS THERE when i needed him, always very punctual , well presented and the most important thing VERY HONEST , my case lasted about a year and a half , it was long and nerve wrecking i was facing up to 13 yrs in jail . We decided to go trial , the trial lasted a week and a half and at the end of it all i was found not guilty for any of the charges. im not writing this review because i feel obligated or because i was found not guilty, im writing this review because bad attorneys need to be reprehended and good ones like andrew needs to be reconized for their great work they do for society.
