I was charged with multiple misdemeanors and a felony during a spring break trip. Since he was first contacted, Mr. Hassett was on the front-lines putting in every effort to release me from holding in the middle of the night. Upon release, Mr. Hassett first comprehensively communicated to me the gravity of all charges from which he mapped all possible repercussions. He next reassuringly delineated the strategy he constructed that would reach the best possible outcome. As my proxy, Mr. Hassett kept me informed at every milestone while my residence was out-of-state. As a result, all charges were dismissed and I have further employed his services to pursue measures that will secure my identity. After researching his presence in the Miami-Dade law community, he has proven himself to be well-respected and well-networked among the Miami-Dade professional organizations. Mr. Hassett's dedication to his craft exceeds all expectations, as such, his pricing matches his proficiency as a lawyer. I whole-heartedly recommend him to any prospective clients.
Ken was extremely helpful to me regarding an issue involving my son in Florida. It was not possible for me to go to Florida at the time but Ken kept me posted along the way. I am very grateful for all his helpfulness and expertise. I would definitely recommend him to others.
Great and in-depth knowledge of all the situations, specially mine. Well informed and easily accessible for all sorts of clarifications during the entire process. 24/7 access and availability for recommendations and executions of steps that suit your need.
We had a family member that needed proper guidance and help on their case. God had it that I ran into Mr. Hassett and asked him a few questions. He helped out same day and managing all the court related matters, what was very clear was the mutual respect in the courthouse. Because of this our relative and I decided to work with Mr. Hassett to handle the entire situation. Mr. Hassett provided us with excellent guidance, a clear strategy, and outlined action items. Most importantly, he was able to communicate in away that allowed the stress of the situation to be managed properly. My relative is very happy today, as the situation has been completely resolved, all has been cleared up and the cost was fair and reasonable. The entire family greatly appreciate your help!
I used the services Kenneth Hassett & Associates for my legal proceedings and I was pleasantly surprized. I was obviously skeptical initially, but after speaking with Mr. Hassett, I felt comfortable, that i was in good hands. Everything that was said to me, materialized.
You would not be disappointed.
From the onset of contacting Ken Hassett, I was instantly relieved that I was in good hands. His approach, direction and advise from the get go, made it easy for me to make a decision when selecting lawyer for my case. I was in a bind with the law that could have had life impacting consequences such as job loss, deportation to Canada and/or serious jail time. Recently, all charges against me have been dismissed, thanks to Ken's efforts, relationships and law experience. I would recommend to anyone needing legal counsel to call Ken Hassett, given the opportunity he should be your first and only call.
Our son got into trouble with the police with a friend of his. After getting drunk, they did something really silly and both ended up with a serious felony charge. We looked for a lawyer online and decided to go and see Ken, who stressed the seriousness of the charge. He was upfront with his fees, and although they seemed high to us (the other kids lawyers were a fraction of the amount), decided to invest with Ken. Our child is now in the drug court program (and PSI) and following Ken's directions to a tee, has had a much smoother ride than his friend has. His friend has had to deal with his lawyer not showing up on court days (lawyer took on too many cases and could not be in more than one place at once). Not having the initial good advice that Ken gave us left his friend with a first time felony that might not have gone away if it had not been for OUR lawyer!
I have certainly realized that you pay for what you get! I would rather have a lawyer that had time for my son, has taken plenty of time to listen to our concerns and was there for us when we needed support and gave us great advice. We are still not out of the woods yet, my son is now in a year program that if he successfully finishes (which we believe he will), will be able to request that the court expunge his record … and Ken is still with us, supporting us all the way.
I recommend Ken highly and suggest you look at the QUALITY of the lawyer, if you need to hire one, be aware that some lawyers make up fees with the QUANTITY of the clients they take on.
This lawyer represented me in a case brought by the Miami police.
The offence was urinating at 2AM on the side of a street.
No toilets were available, but the police stopped and beat us up and fabricated serious charges like drug possession and assaulting officers.
Hassett knows the legal ropes so he scared us with the threat of a possible 15 years jail for the 4 felony offences invented by the police. (The fictitious charges were subsequently dropped.)
Using this scare tactic method Hassett ensured that we thought his services were indispensable, so he could extract the maximum fee possible ($7500) plus a $2500 donation to the police fund.
Hassett may get you off charges but you will pay the maximum fee.
