On July 3 of 2013, I received a ticket for careless driving in manatee county. I contacted Mr. Epifiano .
I explained the situation and was very pleased with the consultation we had. Mr. Epifiano took my case and I was informed he would handle everything.
Mr. Epifiano contacted the court, set up the court date, had the charges dismissed, all of this was performed without my having to miss a single day of work.
I would and will recommend this gentleman to anyone having a traffic problem.
"I hired Mr. Epifanio for several traffic matters. I was concerned becuase I have a fairly bad record so I wasn't sure if he or any other lawyer could help me. He explained that since he isn't the judge he couldn't guarantee anything. However, even with my bad record he was able to get me no points and no school. I all I had to do was pay the fine (which I was happy to do considering my record). I have referred him my friends and family and they all have been happy with his professionalism and unlike other lawyers, he is not afraid to tell you if it's a bad case. I have hired attorneys in the past on other matters both criminal and civil and Mr. Epifanio is very good about explaining the process and returning phone calls if I ever have any questions. His motto of helping good people in unfortunate situations is really true."
I was mislead into believing that I could trust him with my speeding ticket. He calls to tell me "Great news! For $300 more , the Judge has offered to settle without any points to your license and no traffic school!" People, you will get the same result if you yourself were to stand before the Judge and plead No Contest. I paid $200 extra (lawyer fee) for this result, please don't repeat my mistake. He claims to have a great rapport with the Judge but obviously not considering. This lawyer is neither honest nor upfront. He should have met with me, first of all, and let me know the pros and cons of this whole affair. He hid in his office when I came to talk to him about this case. His secretary, nice as she is, was only there to collect the fee.
I was arrested on a domestic charge on a Saturday night. I called Mr. Epifanio and he was the ONLY attorney to show up for arraignment on a Sunday morning!!! I was so happy to see him. Not only did he get me released without bond, but he also got my case dismissed from the court. I don't know any other attorney that would go the extra mile like he did. If you need help, call Craig.
