Mr. Pearlman is the definition of a top lawyer. He moves quickly, is willing to do whatever it may take to help you and always has your best interest in mind. I can't express in words how thankful I am to of had Mr.Pearlman represent my loved one. He fights for you and thinks outside of the box. He is at the top of his profession and you will be making a huge mistake if you choose any other lawyer to represent you or a loved one!

Lee is a most trusted person - he always gives you direct answers that have impact on your life - no playing around. He will always answers questions you have at any time. he will always come through for you. As everyone will know whether you need a lawyer or not the most important thing is TRUST.

I was referred to Lee though a friend of a friend, thats how these things usually happen. he had handled his DUI and was successful in getting a reduction to reckless driving. I submitted abreath sample almost 3 times the legal limit, and Lee was able to have it supressed. This resulted in my case also being reduced to reckless driving. He did a great job and I would recommend him to anyone looking for solid DUI defense. If your looking for a lawyer that will give you a cell phone number and stay in contact though the entire process look no further.

After being charged with DUI, my whole future was compromised and finding a good lawyer wasn’t an easy task. I called many lawyers and some promised great results when they didn’t know any details about my case. Lee Pearlman gave me that confidence over the phone the other lawyers didn’t, and offered me an appointment that same day. He is an intelligent young lawyer that did an outstanding job representing me. All my questions were answered and he showed me what could be the best and worst outcome of my case. His experience is marvelous and the outcome of my case was more than what I was expecting. His work can be described in one word, excellence.

I can't tell you how Lee has brought peace to my life. In such a stressfull situation he knew every step to take and was more than reassuring. I could call him anytime, anywhere. You just don't get that kind of personal service from most law offices. I will recomend Lee to anyone I know that can use his services. Lee is the apex of integrity.

Lee is exceptional in all ways. Thorough, creative, timely, compassionate, and meticulous in his research and presentation, he epitomizes the highest standards of professionalism as a lawyer. He goes the extra mile for his clients and offers reality-based assessments of potential successful outcomes. His clear-eyed vision is matched only by his compassionate support for his clients and their families as they struggle with vocabulary and concepts that would boggle the mind under the best of circumstances, and multiply exponentially as the stressors associated with legal proceedings increase.
Lee Pearlman is an absolute professional with the highest ethical standards. I recommend him wholeheartedly.

Mr. Lee Pearlman provided my wife and I and our daughter with wise counsel, expert legal advice and has represented us in a completely competent and professional manner in various court proceedings in front of two adjudicating judges who, at times, were extraordinarily and needlessly adversarial. He has represented our daughter in a felony DUI, where, based on extenuating circumstances, he was successful in getting the charges and penalties significantly reduced. His representation of our daughter in court was superb in that there were no surprises which provided great comfort to our daughter and us. Mr. Pearlman is knowledgeable of the law and researches his cases in a detailed manner. He is always prepared for the next event in legal matters, doing the necessary research and advising his clients in a clear face-to-face manner. Mr. Pearlman is forthright. He takes the time to explain to his clients the nuances of the law so that it is understandable to the layman. Not only that, he is up front about the cost of his services (which I determined to be quite reasonable) and is flexible in his clients timeliness of payments. I very highly recommend Mr. Pearlman for your legal needs.

Driving home one night on 19 we had a problem with an officer concerning our stopping for an accident up ahead.
Needless to say we did not agree with the ticket or how it was handled. This turned out to be an felony offense.
Lee was highly recommended by other law officers in Pinellas County.
Lee saw us right away, listen intently and was on the case.
Lee constantly kept us informed on status and how the case was progressing.
His knowledge of the system and the people we would be involved with enabled him to have the case dismissed.
We also highly recommend Lee.

Because of Lee Pearlman my step-son avoided a 2 year stay in the Florida prison system. Lee was able to work with the Prosecutor's office to accept drug treatment for him in lieu of prison time. Lee Pearlman's fees were affordable and he offered flexible payment options. I am very satisfied with the results that Lee Pearlman produced. Because of Lee's dedication to his clients and profession my step-son has a chance to get his life back together. We are very grateful to Lee.

About a year ago I was potentially looking at a felony conviction for a mistake and misunderstanding I was involved in that occured one evening. Being a local businessman and contributing member of society and the community for years, I couldn't let this injustice happen and potentially tarnish my reputation that I have worked hard to build over the years.
Immediately, I extensively and dilligently researched and interviewed several local criminal defense attorneys in the Tampabay area to find the best and brightest to represent me in my case to ensure that justice was done. Lee Pearlman's name kept coming up. After meeting with him and being referred to him through yet ANOTHER contact, I decided that Lee Pearlman was my man and he would represent me in my case.
Lee took the time to be honest and forthright with me regarding the realities of my case. He advised me on the best way to handle the case, step by step and the steps to take in order to get the best possible outcome. He advised me of all scenarios - both best case and worst case - all the while assuring me of my likely positive outcome. He took the time to explain things to me and ALWAYS called me back. He never left me hanging, which other attorneys I've dealt with sometimes have a tendency to do and not get back to you on things.
Needless to say there was no felony conviction and Lee got me a near best-case scenario outcome that I was VERY happy with and VERY thankful for. Justice was done in my case and
Lee Pearlman made sure of it!
If you're looking for the areas best sharp criminal defense attorney, Lee Pearlman is your man. I highly recommend him. He will take care of you and get the job done. Thanks Lee!

I can't tell you enough how honest, professional, caring, helpful, and knowledgeable Lee is. Lee Pearlman exceeded my expectations as an attorney. When I was charged with my DUI, I was scared, lost, and confused. I heard wonderful feedback about Lee Pearlman, so I immediately contacted him. During the initial visit, Lee took two hours of his time to discuss my case, BEFORE I EVEN HIRED HIM. He reviewed all possible charges and fees that I faced, as well as provided me with a checklist of tasks that I should complete immediately. I used this checklist as a guideline to make sure that all of my DUI classes, fees, etc. were paid and accommodated for as soon as possible. Since Lee provided me with such an excellent checklist, I was able to have everything completed before my court hearing. The judge was extremely impressed with how fast and efficient I got all of my tasks done, and the only person I could thank was Lee. Before hiring Lee, I researched several other attorneys and none of them took the time and effort that Lee did, to meet with me and fully discuss my case and what I had to look forward to in the future. That is when I knew Lee would be a great attorney for my case. Throughout my entire case, Lee answered my phone calls (regardless what time of day it was), responded to my emails in a time efficient manner, and contacted me on several occasions with updates on my case and to ensure that all my questions were answered. He is so incredibly caring and constantly looks out for my best interest (as well as all of his clients) and has remained consistent from the start. I am very happy that I chose Lee to represent me and I would recommend him to ANYONE. He is truly a great attorney and really cares about his clients, and of course about winning your case. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ATTORNEY!!!!

If you are looking for an highly professional, honest and compassionate attorney, I can highly recommend Lee Pearlman. He represented my son and got the best possible results we could get. He was always available for questions and was very well versed in knowing the law. He was always prompt and prepared and always willing to go the extra mile for us. Thank you again for all your expert advise and compassion.

Lee Pearlman represented me in my first experience with any legal trouble. He took time to thoroughly explain my situation and my options and was always available for me when I had questions. Lee ended up getting me the best possible result: all charges dropped! I would use him again and again (although, hopefully I won't have to!)

I first hired Lee Pearlman because of the firm he WAS with. During our time together he branched off and started his own firm (with Tetreault). I had a choice to make, stick with Lee, or stay with the firm. Without even thinking about it, I stuck with Lee. The end result was EXACTLY what we wanted, even a little better. Professional but cool at the same time. Understanding, no agenda, works for YOU. I love the guy (even said this to the judge). Easy to get in touch with, always available. Results are what matter, and he gets them. I know first hand

Lee Pearlman is an experienced, compassionate, and honest attorney. Lee kept me informed of any and all factors in my case without fail. I am greatful and pleased with his services and the outcome he was able to provide me in my case. Throughout my time and experience with Lee there was not a moment I was left unsure, unaware, or insecure of any facts for my case. Lee, I thank you for your hard,dedicated, and flawless work.
