I'm a Registered Nurse. During Easter week of March, 2013, I was stopped, arrested, and confined for my 2nd DUI. With my nursing and driver's licenses at stake, I began looking online for lawyers and information on how I could protect my professional license and ability to drive.
On Easter Sunday, of all days, I was able to make immediate contact with John Musca of Musca Law. I was beyond believing anyone could help me, but he assured me he had, what he believed to be, the best DUI lawyers in the state who could. I was impressed by his confidence and reassurance that all was not lost, and equally impressed he was so available to me on a holiday.
Immediately, they obtained for me a permit to drive, even though my DUI ticket said I was NOT eligible for a permit! I was then able to drive and tend to my patients needs while they worked on reinstating my full driver's license. Then, within 4 weeks on me contacting them, I received notice my Driver's License had been fully reinstated on account of a tactical decision not to subpoena a certain witness at the DMV hearing! Now I can drive, and practice my trade without compromise.
Trust me, these people are worth every dime! They have a system of attorneys who are experts in the field working together and they get things done! Personally, I believe in divine intervention and Mr Musca and his team have been that intervention for me. Hallelujuh! And thank You, with all my heart and soul!

I am an accountant, more specifically, an Enrolled Agent. In October 2012, when I was arrested for DUI and blew a .16, I thought my "goose was cooked" and that my career, and my life, were over. I knew my only hope was to hire the best DUI law firm that money could buy.
I reviewed firms online and read about Musca Law and their ebook “How to Beat a DUI in Florida,”. I called the firm and was immediately put at ease by a knowledgeable, calm and supportive attorney who was able to convince me Musca Law was the correct choice.
The attorney on my criminal case was always available on his direct line to answer my questions and concerns before, during, and after my ordeal. Immediately, he recognized an issue with the lawfulness of the officer pulling me over in the first place, and filed a Motion to Suppress The Stop. His expert presence and cross-examining of the officer during that motion was exceptional and dynamic, just like you see in the movies!
Eventually, he won the motion, and the Prosecutor had no choice but to dismiss all the charges against me. Now, my professional license and my ability to earn a living is no longer in jeopardy. My highest praise and recommendation go to Musca Law.
Thank You so Much!

In an emergency, on a holiday weekend, we called Musca Law (I was truly in a panic). Mr. Musca was immediately available, calmed me down and was able to earn my trust right away. I retained the firm immediately. The team approach in which they coordinated my husband’s defense was truly amazing and something I wasn’t expecting. They handled my husband's case professionally, honestly and with dignity. The attorney argued my husband’s case in front of a jury while he was dog sick and was “spot on brilliant!”. For that, we are truly grateful. I would recommend John Musca and his firm to anyone I know who has a need of a criminal lawyer (hopefully no one has a need though :) )

The John Musca Law Firm is the "Robert Shapiro, Johnny Cochrain and Jose Baez" operation of all Florida Defense Firms. I don't know how your associate Mark Youngblood did it ! I could not have asked for a more thorough, compassionate and downright tenacious attorney to represent me in my fifth DUI arrest. I could not have imagined a more favorable outcome: Zero jail time and only one year probation ! Thanks for your hard work, Mark, and for the personal advice you gave to me concerning my alcoholism. Thanks to you I'm celebrating 150 days of sobriety this week. I feel great and I'm so hopeful about the future. You saved me in more ways than one. Your Most greatful Client, J.E.

I am so very grateful to have Musca Law Firm represent my friend, he had a Violation of Probation, and was arrested. I called several law firms, but no one seemed to have the expertise that I was looking for, most lawyers told me it would be many months before my friend could see the light of day. I called Musca and spoke to them, I knew I had reached the right attorney for the job. I retained Musca on Tuesday, they filed a motion on Wednesday, on Thursday the charges were dropped and my friend was released. It took Musca Law 3 days to get my friend released. THREE DAYS..... compared to the many months that other law firms said it would take. I will never use any other law firm for any representation that I may need. They were fast, efficient and WORTH EVERY PENNY. Call and talk to them before you make your decision it could change your life, you will be glad you did.

As a straight "A" health student at University of Florida, I never imagined that I would be arrested and in need of a criminal defense attorney. After being pulled over for driving my friend’s vehicle without the headlights on, I was arrested and charged with a DUI and Refusal to Submit to the Breath Test. Naturally, I was concerned about my future and my career.
Immediately, I got together with my parents and researched a potential lawyer for my case. With so much at stake, my parents and I knew not just any old lawyer would do.
At first, I was skeptical about finding a lawyer online. But, right away, I found immediate comfort and confidence in Attorney John Musca, the owner of Musca Law. He spoke to us for quite some time and explained the process fully, after hours, no less. His passion for his work, and compassion for his clients was undeniable. And he gave me his word I would receive "top notch" representation for my case.
After speaking with Attorney Musca, everything fell into place right away. Within days, one of his associates obtained for me a temporary driving permit. Shortly thereafter, the firm won my DMV hearing and my driver's license was immediately reinstated!! By the way, this was the same hearing OTHER attorneys told me was NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE to win!!
Thanks Attorney Musca, and your brillant team, for keeping your word, protecting my license and restoring my faith in lawyers!!!
I would, without question, recommend you and your firm to anyone needing help with a DUI in Florida!!

I am a Real Estate broker who was arrested for my second DUI Arrest 11 months ago. Confused and overwhelmed, I didn't know where to turn. I had heard from many people in town that Attorney John Musca of Musca Law was the best attorney for handling DUI cases.
From the moment I met John, I knew I had made the right decision to hire him. I found him to be genuine-a real human being-who treated me, and handled my case, with compassion, concern and understanding. Above all, it was obvious to me Attorney Musca knew his stuff!!! Upon further research, I learned he had special training and qualifications other DUI attorneys in the area did not. I discovered, for instance, he was certified in field sobriety testing and breathalyzer operation. There is NO DOUBT this special training was crucial in helping Attorney Musca obtain a favorable outcome on my DUI case.
I was also impressed with the intensity and enthusiasm with which Attorney Musca took on my case. No sooner was I present in his office for the first meeting than was he immediately filing an emergency appeal to save my Driver's License and calling the prosecutor on my behalf. He, along with the rest of his team, took immediate action on my behalf. And, most importantly, that level of extra attention and care NEVER diminished as the case progressed.
In Attorney Musca, I found not just an attorney and advocate, but a friend throughout my horrendous ordeal! Months after my case was resolved, attorney Musca still checks in with me to make sure I am alright and that my life is back on track! Now that's unique! That's special! Everything I heard prior to retaining Musca Law proved to be true! And I recommend him and the firm to anyone needing criminal defense assistance!

Hallelujah! Finally, a lawyer that treated me like a human being. We can’t all be perfect citizens, and I have definitely made my fair share of mistakes, so it’s always great to meet someone that doesn’t judge you on your past and focuses more on making your future brighter. That’s exactly what you did…you put a positive spin on every negative thing that I have done and put together a detailed case that convinced the judge that I deserved a new lease on life. I’m working on becoming a better person, so thanks for helping me and inspiring me to make some necessary changes in my life.

Don’t give up until you have called this firm! You made me realize that there really is hope for everyone, no matter how heavily the odds are stacked against them. I know now how important it is to stand up and fight for your freedom and your rights, and how much of a difference it makes to have a smart, confident lawyer on your side. Your experience was crucial in my case and it was clear that you knew your stuff. I take comfort knowing that you’ll be there if I ever need you and that you have helped thousands of honest, hard working people just like me.

My daughter and I would just like to say a quick thank you for helping her with her DUI charge. What she did was extremely irresponsible but she has learned her lesson and we both very much appreciate your dedication to her case. It is nice to know that there are legal professionals out there who actually care about their clients and not just about making a buck. I am confident that she will not make a similar mistake again in the future, but if we ever do have any other sort of legal issues in our family, we would be proud to have you represent us once again.

I usually don’t bother writing reviews because it takes a lot to impress me, but your integrity, intellect and patience is worth talking about. They say that for every negative experience a customer has they will tell 6 people, whereas if they have a great experience they will only tell 1, so hopefully this reaches more than one person and convinces them to hire your firm to represent them. My case was a difficult one. I was charged with fraud and the odds were definitely stacked against me. I really felt like it was me against the world until I found your firm through a family friend. After that the rest is history! You immediately returned my call and assured me that all was not lost. I felt respected and heard for the first time since my ordeal began and knew that you were the right choice. I know how much time and effort you put into ensuring that we had a strong case, so even though I did not get off completely scott free, I would like to thank you so much for getting me the most reduced sentence possible. To the person who is reading this, know that if you hire this firm you are making an investment in your future.

Please extend my gratitude to your legal team from my husband and I.
His drinking and driving charge really shook up our family because this was the first time any of us had ever had any sort of legal problems. He had called several other firms looking for someone to take my case but was coming up empty until we got a call back from you right away. It was apparent from the beginning that the attorney we hired knew exactly what he was doing and took charge of the situation before it was too late.
Thank you so much for getting the charges dropped and getting our lives back to normal.

Coming from a real small county, getting any charge dealt with is a hassle~ but dealing with it from another state is even worse. When I got in touch with Musca law, I already felt like I had a fighting chance and that things were going to start looking up. In a matter of a week they were able to bring me in and my bond down from 126,000$ to a mere 10,000- needless to say a victory for the start of my vexing case. Very attentive and knowledgeable about the situations, 5 stars.

At the time of my DUI arrest, I had just moved to Florida and did not know anyone to ask for advice on whom to go to for legal representation. I did some research on DUI attorneys and came across Musca Law Firm. I have to admit, I was a little skeptical of hiring an attorney without a personal referral but my skepticism was immediately met with relief. Within hours of contacting Musca Law Firm, I was introduced to the team of attorneys and legal professionals that would be handling my case.
Rebecca Sonalia represented me during the DMV hearing. After meticulous examination of my arrest packet, Ms. Sonalia was able to find a problem with how the officer handled my arrest. She brought her findings before the hearing officer in my DMV hearing and made a motion to lift the suspension. She was able to back up her argument quoting from several other cases that were similar to my own. This resulted in full reinstatement of my license. Jessica Ventura, assistant to Ms. Sonalia, walked me through the entire DMV process and made it easy to understand. She answered all of my questions, no matter how trivial (even on the weekend). In addition, both Ms. Sonalia and Ms. Ventura have taken time out of their evenings (after hours) to work around my schedule.
John Musca and The Musca Law team have all the attributes that I was looking for in a Law Firm: knowledge and seasoned experience, professionalism, integrity, strategic thinking, enthusiasm, effective communication, and responsiveness. I feel that my case was handled aggressively, ethically, and efficiently. I HIGHLY recommend Musca Law Firm to anyone in need of legal representation.

I would like to take this time to sincerely thank Musca Law firm for their incredible services throughout my case. Their hardworking team worked diligently to ensure an outcome I was happy with. They quickly took the case and navigated me through every twist and turn to the very end. A special Thank You to Kerry Bynes, who stayed in continual contact with me step by step to explain this seemingly overwhelming and daunting process. She worked with me on any financial issues I had, questions that may arise, as well as assuring me help with any follow up needs that may arise from this case. Legal matters being brought against you can be a very scary situation, Musca Law Firm did an excellent job of taking away the fear and uncertainty of it all and replacing it with confidence, and a solid understanding of what was happening and what steps to take, all leading up to a positive ending. I highly recommend Musca Law to anybody requiring legal assistance!

Musca is a great marketer, but that is as far as it goes. You will be assigned one of his associates, who will not communicate with you. There were so many holes in my case, and all that my attorney did was try and cop a plea deal. I was told I was pleaing to one thing, and five minutes before pleaing I was told that I was pleaing to something else. Save your money and find a good attorney. A public defender will work harder for you than this firm will.
