Posted by a Child Abuse client, Flag
I honestly don't even know where to start. Last January 2013 my son's stroller fell over and my wife and I took him to the hospital. They immediately started asking us if we were abusive to our child. They then arrested me and put me in jail and charged me with Child Abuse, a 1st degree felony. I did not see my son for 3 months. It was an absolute nightmare that words cannot explain.
Mr. Pincus did not think the charges would be filed, but unfortunately for me, they were. I am very lucky that my wife got a referral from a friend that Mr. Pincus was very good. He knew many of the people involved with my case at the prosecutors office, because he himself used to be a prosecutor. He came to the jail on 2 separate occasions and reviewed the details of the case. Another lawyer my wife had asked to visit me came to the jail and only talked money. Mr. Pincus never brought up any sort of money and only cared about the case at hand.
The first offer the prosecutors offered us was 5 years in prison for child abuse. I just couldn't believe this was happening. But Mr. Pincus continued to be positive and asked me to TRY and not worry. He was always in constant contact with me and was very easy to get in touch with. He not only attended all my criminal hearings, but also my civil court hearings dealing with the Department of Children and Families.
I also have a health license and work in the health field, so Mr. Pincus also was in contact with the Florida Department of Health and discussing options for me and my health license. I can't say enough that he constantly went above and beyond. He was not just my lawyer, he felt more like a personal friend working so hard for me constantly.
I also remember when we thought the prosecution was going to offer us a plea of Withhold of Adjudication, which meant I would not be a convicted felon. I told Mr. Pincus that I did not want to accept that but would just to get this nightmare over with and move on with my life, plus I was running out of money with all the things the Department of Children and Families were making my family go through. I specifically remember him saying, "Don't accept the plea if it's because of money, we'll work something out if we need to, only accept the plea if you feel right about it."
There was only one plea I would accept and that was the Pre-trial Intervention Program, where after a short probationary period, the charges are completely dropped. From the beginning, Mr. Pincus explained that getting P.T.I. would be a challenge. I told him that we had to get P.T.I. or it looked as if we were going to trial (which I did not want to do, but would to prove my innocence).
Mr. Pincus wrote a very detailed letter explaining everything, from the anger management I completed to the facts of the case to the prosecutor. He said it was his last attempt before heading to trial. And somehow, the prosecutors agreed to give me the Pre-trial Intervention Program, the charges will be dropped.
Mr. Pincus not only saved me from prison for something I did not do and would never do, he saved my family, he saved my health license, he truly saved my life. My son just turned one years old and is doing great. I can now enjoy the holidays knowing that these charges are going to be dropped and I can move on with my life. It's been an awfully dark time in our lives, but Mr. Pincus was the light that kept shining on us. He and the staff at Wadley Zervos Berman and Yanchuck are amazing. A great experience with a great ending.
I highly recommend Mr. Pincus to anyone going through a hard time, because he will go above and beyond for you. He truly cared more about my case then my check book and I can't thank him enough for what he has done for me and my family.

I am quite pleased with Mr. Pincus' professionalism and expertise. He was an excellent attorney in that he worked on my speeding ticket in an effective and expeditious manner. In 2 weeks, he had the ticket resolved. I didn't have to attend school and no points on my license. I do not feel I was at fault but I really didn't want to go to court and Loren Pincus said he would take care of it and he did! My fine was reduced and no points on my license. I hope I don't get another ticket but if I do, I certainly know who will handle it for me. Mr. Pincus is honest, trustworthy and dependable.

He represented me for a traffic hearing that I was sure I was going to lose. He went to court with me and made sure I understood everything that was happening and made me feel comfortable. He ended up getting it dismissed and charged me less than I was quoted from other attorneys.

Mr. Pincus always extended courteous professionalism and unbiased opinions throughout the 9 months we worked together on my case. He was forthcoming, which was extremely appreciated, and I never felt like I was being told only what I wanted to hear, but rather what I needed to hear, to help me understand the specifics of my case and to enable me to make the best educated decisions I could. I found him to be reliable, trustworthy, and responsive. I also felt like he was willing to go above and beyond to obtain the best possible outcome, which at the end of the day worked in my favor. For this, I am truly grateful.

We all know you can open the yellow pages and find hundreds of attorney to meet your needs-but not likely one that will treat you as an individual that you actually get to talk one on one with throughout the whole process! Attorney Pincus was very helpful, professional and was able to help me in a timely matter .. If your looking for a great attorney to be on your side-he is your guy!

I came to Mr. Pincus rather concerned because I had been cited for a felony traffic violation when I was not guilty. Mr. Pincus was extremely knowledgeable and described how my case would probably proceed on the first day. The investigation of the situation was through and complete. Not only was he correct but he assured that I was informed all along the way. His confidence was reassuring at a time when I had serious doubts. I have nothing but good things to say about how I was treated and how pleased I was with the ultimate conclusion.
I highly recommend this firm and Mr. Pincus in particular.

Loren is a very knowledgeable and trustworthy lawyer. I felt comfortable wtih him from the minute after talking with him and sharing my story. He was very responsive and guided me in all the right directions, during a very stressful time in my life.

I would recommend Loren Pincus to anyone who is in need of a reliable, knowledgeable and trustworthy lawyer.

I was facing the maximum possible sentencing for my infractions and Loren was able to get it reduced to the minimum amount of sentencing per guidelines. Loren did an amazing job, it's also noted that the judge told me during sentencing that I was lucky to have Loren as my attorney.
