Mr. Forbess was very professional and knowledgeable about the the law. His firm was very courteous during my time of need and concluded my matter with a great result. I highly recommend Mr. Forbess and his firm.

Forbess seemed to be confused by everything that happened at my court dates as well as would forget the most simple conversations that we had with him as a family. He was disorganized and often didnt know my name. His spoiled son was never around to help answer any questions. The prosecutor was more helpful than Forbess in dealing with my case. He was a total waste of money and is clearly past his prime.

Ray and I handled several cases together when I was a prosecutor. He was always able to get the best results for his clients through his practical, no-nonsense approach. I recommend Ray for any criminal defense matters.

I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Forbess is a no-nonsense attorney who works aggressively for the interests of his clients. As a former prosecutor, I always admired and respected Mr. Forbess skill and ability as a litigator and trial attorney. He is truly one of the best attorneys practicing in Jacksonville, Florida.
