  • Angel Fermin Leal Jr.

    Jose Carrillo is the most creative yet practical lawyer I have ever met. Jose & I have collborated on many cases together, & I have engaged him in personal legal matters as I trust him unconditionally & without reservation. Jose has an uncanny ability to sift through the peripheral & tangential issues & identify the essence of a case. He then has the experience & ability to posture a case in the most favorable fashion possible & bring it to a successful resolution. Jose has earned & enjoys the respect and admiration of the South Florida legal community. He is a name partner in the prestigious firm of Gimenez & Carrillo, a full service law firm. The firm embodies Jose's creativity & tireless work ethic. Outside of the law, Jose is a respected & admired member of trhe South Florida community who has tirelessly given of his time to many charitable endeavors. It is my honor & privilege to be Jose's colleague and friend. Quite literally in my case, Jose is a lawyer's lawyer.
