Very professional. I was kept updated via email, phone and messaging. My case was handled quickly and I was very pleased with the results. I will be recommending him to everyone!

If you can not afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you by a court of law. Don't trust your fate with a public defender. Hire the best. You can trust Raymond Forbess. I hired this attorney to defend a family member from what could have been a very serious charge. Raymond Forbess was instrumental in getting the charge dismissed almost immediately.

STAY FAR FROM THIS LAWYER WHILE YOU CAN!!! PLENTY OF BETTER LAWYERS IF I CAN GIVE HIM NEGATIVE STARS I WOULD...HE IS A SNAKE!!!!
.. he is only after your money and doesn't care about you ..I wanted to believe him and I gave him a chance to represent me however he took advantage that I was in incarcerated to drag out a process that needed not be dragged.. never negotiated anything for me and got the same offer that was presented to me to begin with ...worst of all he charged my Credit Card on file with out my permission while I was incarcerated. I told him to charge me after my sentencing but he cared not!!!! DO YOUR SELF A FAVOR AND TRUST YOU GUT .. HE FITS THE DIRTY STEREO TYPE OF LAWYERS.. COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME.. I AM FILING A COMPLAINT AGAINST THE FLORIDA BAR... YOU ARE A SCAM!!!!!

I couldn't be more pleased with the service Raymond provides. I was facing felony charges and a misdemeanor involving a weapon and Raymond took the case without hesitation. He does not hesitate to work on weekends and evenings. I had many questions due to this being my first time involved with the law and he answered everything I wanted or needed to know. I would recommend him to anyone especially a U.S Navy Veteran like myself.

When it comes to a competent attorney look no further. Mr. Forbess is amazing and truly cares about his clients not only on a professional basis but also takes on each case as though he is representing his own family. Mr. Forbess traveled from Jacksonville to Tampa Florida to visit my youth and went over and beyond to ensure my daughters safe return home and fought tooth and nail to keep his word. If you are looking for someone that puts forth 110% and actually cares about you this is who you need to call. He is highly respected in the court system and I would NEVER call anyone else, he is simply the BEST and brought my daughter home after we were told there was absolutely no way it could happen --he made it possible !

My daughter got herself into some real trouble in the Jacksonville area. We were beside ourselves, never having been through anything like this before. I contacted Mr. Forbess and he answered the phone and talked with me for over an hour about her situation. He knew exactly what to ask me and what to tell me to calm my racing mind without promising anything. I was surprised that he seemed to know her case without even meeting her, however, seemed to want to know and understand HER. Before our conversation was over, he told me he would go and see her in the pre-trial detention facility the next day, which he did.
He told me to call him any time, day or night and either he or his son, who is an attorney as well, would answer the phone and do their best to answer any questions we may have. One of them always answered or called back immediately.
When time came for our daughter to appear before the judge, Mr. Forbess called my husband and I into a room and explained to us exactly what would happen in the courtroom, what she was charged with, what the results could be, but what the sentence actually would be. We were so relieved when he told us that what could have been a 60 year sentence ended up just 12 months but also with a court ordered rehab program then 12 month unsupervised probation and adjudication as well.
We are SO very THANKFUL to Mr. Forbess for taking his time with us as well as with our daughter, to ensure that she would receive the most fair sentence as well as getting the help that she needs to be a productive mother and citizen when she gets out.
I would hope my family never needs an attorney ever again for these kind of issues, but I know that I would NEVER hesitate to call Mr. Forbess if I do!

Was threatened with police action over things that had happened and things I didn't do, my place of work got in touch with Mr.Forbess and he came and met me and advised me with what to do and not to do involving police and what to expect down the road from the incident, he never mentioned money and was a straight shooter about the issue and genuinely wanted to assist me.

I was a client of Mr. Forbess Sr. back in September of 2017, and came upon him in time of dire need. I was stuck in a rut, unsure what to do next, but He was beside me every step of the way; keeping me updated and in-the-loop. Not only was Mr. Forbess Sr. extremely approachable, but He also has a great support staff that never hesitated when He or I needed something. Most importantly, Ray listened to me as a client. He made sure I was well taken care of, and I can't thank Him or his staff enough. I would, and will continue to recommend, and use Mr Forbess Sr. as my family attorney indefinitely.
