The first lawyer I've ever met that listened to what happened and understood, instead of telling me what to do without hearing all the facts. I would recommend Ann Finnell any day of the week. She IS the EXCEPTION to all the rules! She is On Point! This is who you call when you need help. Worth every penny, her Avvo 10 rating is well deserved.

The documentary " Murder On A Sunday Morning"'won the academy award for best documentary. She and Pat Mc? did such an excellent job, the jury returned a not guilty verdict in 45 min. The arrest of this young Black teen, Brenton Butler, was similar to the murder of another teen, Trayvon Martin, in that both were assumed to be guilty by their skin color.
The police lied on the stand but young Mr. Butler was fortunate to have two of the best criminal defense attorneys assigned to represent him. The documentary may be available on you tube as this horrible injustice took place in 2001.
I haven't had to hire her but she would be my choice. There are few heroes in law but she practices law like Clarence Darrow or Atticus Finch.

Charged, arrested, and later released under bond for sex related crimes, Ann Finnell was recommended for my case by several other practicing attorneys in Jacksonville Florida. Ann Finnell handled every facet of my case and subsequent trial with an unparalleled degree of professionalism. Ann Finnell’s obvious knowledge and experience in criminal defense law made the difference in the outcome of my case. Ann Finnell’s attention to details through the various stages of my case was outstanding. Ann Finnell demonstrated a high level of responsibility and pride to make sure I received a very fair and unbiased trial. I would highly recommend Ann Finnell to anyone facing criminal charges.
