    I met Mr. Docobo when we had codefendants on a rather large State trafficking offense in Orange County. It was a complicated case with several issues, each issue having many layers to it. Mr. Docobo was very adept at perceiving and researching all of the issues. He quickly established himself with the local prosecutor and judge as an excellent attorney. (The other codefendant's attorney, also from Miami, did not). After 2 days of hearings on our various motions, the State finally gave our clients what they wanted all along. Mr. Docobo is an excellent attorney and i would (and have) recommnded him to friends who have needed a lawyer in South Florida.
