I was 15 years old at the time of my offence. It was my first and only offence. I was sentenced to a total of 8 years with 5 probation. I completed my prison sentence. Unfortunately without any recourse in the city I was in I was forced to move out of town. My transfer was not approved by my probation. For 7 years I lived as a fugitive. I remade my life without any additional crimes or unlawfulness. I was re arrested and sent back to my original state. My family contacted Mr. Gaviria for help. I honestly have to say he is the most professional, precise, and dedicated lawyer I have ever worked with. He was completely honest from the beginning. The best part is he did exactly as he promised. In my book there is no better lawyer. He is fair and honest and will always do everything that can and sometimes the impossible to find the best resolution.

We were given Mr. Gaviria's name by an inmate our family member met in jail who was being represented by Frank. This inmate was very complimentary of Mr. Gaviria. Our case was a tough one. Long story short, there was a parole violation and the prosecuting attorney wanted four years. After three months of negotiations, our boy is coming HOME! We are so grateful for Mr. Gaviria and for what he has done to get our family member home where he is needed and belongs. Frank saw the good in this young man and never gave up! Mr. Gaviria is a no nonsense attorney and we trusted that he would get us the best possible result. He delivered!! He went way beyond the call of duty and we will always be deeply appreciative of what he has done for our family!

Frank was very helpful in getting my case dismissed. He knew exactly what to do. He is extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. He kept me very well informed. If your in a criminal bind he is the one to call.

I thank him so much for his dedication and hard work on my case. He is an honest lawyer who tells you the truth without giving you the beautiful blah blah blahto get you hire him. before I met him and went with two different lawyers and they didn't do anything for me. They were just asking for money all the time saying that everything was going to be okay and I didn't see any work done.
Thank God I found him. FRANK GAVIRIA IS THE BEST ATTORNEY I KNOW for DUI and also TRAFFICKING. He is the lawyer of one of my friends.

A very professional and well spoken attorney. With over 20 years of experience, i felt very comfortable with his representation. My case involved several felonies that after some restitution is paid, charges will be dropped . I recently re hired frank for a domestic violence charge , while still enrolled in my prior paying for the restitution . Even after my new case he managed to get me out of jail,drop my domestic violence charge and re enroll me back into paying my restitution. I cant be any more contempt in my decision picking Frank as my attorney ...

I hired Frank to defend several of my federal crime charges. He won the case and was very time efficient during the whole 2 months that he was hired. I recommend his services entirely.

Charged with 2 first degree trafficing charges, Mr. Gaviria got my case transferred from lee county to dade county, won all motions. Has great command of my case and has me half way home. Dont hesitate, not hiring him will be your BIGGEST mistake. He is the MAN..............

I am an ivy league student and I got caught up in some trouble in miami over spring break, but thanks to Frank, charges were dropped and I have my life again. I highly recommend Frank to anyone!

Getting arrested was the worst thing that ever happened to me, my friend bailed me out and recommended I call Frank. Frank took it over from there, giving me the ins and outs of the procedure, he was always available, answered all my questions, and WON my case. No record, No conviction, for all of you out there looking for a lawyer who will not stop for a settlement get in contact with Mr. Gaviria. There is no other attorney out there who I have come across who has his determination to win, win, WIN!

He was late to my court date, and once he was paid it seemed like he wanted to finish the case as quickly as possible. I would not recommend him to anyone. There are better lawyers out there. Do yourself a favor and stay far away.

Hello my name is Raul and I am one of Frank Gavirias clients. When I first met Frank I was in bad shape. I had multiple felony and misdemeanor charges against and didn't know what to do. I spoke to Frank Gaviria in person and I decided to hire him. A smooth talker he is, but he also worked extremely hard on my case. He was and is very professional and showed up to all my hearing dates well dressed and NEVER late. Since I have known him I have called him many times in regards to my case and he always took the time in explaining everything to me so that I would understand. He also took the time to GO back to court and correct one of my misdemeanors that was supposed to be dismissed and was not. If he would not have helped me on that I would have had a bench warrant issued on me because of a mistake made by the court. He is the best and always will be. I am currently on probation but if it wasn't for Frank Gaviria I would be in STATE PRISON! Mr. Frank Gaviria is the best Lawyer and I am thankful for everything he did for me.

Frank fights hard his clients and has the respect of the judges and prosecutors. He gets great results and got my sons case dismissed!!! Before court I asked the bailiff, who told me Frank Gaviria was regarded as one of of the best.
Posted by Jorge, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
I am very surprised by the previous negative review. I did my Home work and found out that Mr Gaviria is a very welll respected attorney. he has been involved in many high-profile cases with great results. He got my case and my friend's case dismissed with ease.

Frank seems only interested in getting you to give him your case and pay him, and once he has your money all he is interested in is getting your case out of his way so that he can move on to the next one. He answered none of my questions and responded to none of my attempts to contact him before my court date, and I wound up walking into the courtroom unprepared and not knowing what to expect at all. He advised me to take the first plea the prosecutor offered me and I still have not been able to get him to file the appropriate paperwork to take care of my case. I am on probation right now and I'm afraid that because of his company's complete lack of customer service that I am going to be held in contempt of court for violating my probation for not filing that paperwork. I wish there were a way to rate his responsiveness as a zero instead of a 1. I cannot stress how much you will regret giving Frank your case if you hire him.
